All Images by Men In This Town
They say you can tell a lot about a city by observing its citizens & their style. Since moving to Melbourne I've enjoyed spending time at a cafe people watching while enjoying an Australian Iced Coffee (coffee + a scoop of ice cream). I've found that the city has an interesting street style unlike any other city I've been to.
From my first day in the city, I've realized how important it is to have proper outerwear. Since Melbourne is known to experience all four seasons in one day, it is essential to find the perfect coat that can transition throughout the day. Walking the streets of Melbourne, I've been inspired by the business men in their overcoats. An overcoat can add a finishing touch to a suit or even add an elegant touch to some dark denim.
Another big trend I've seen has been casual pants in all sorts of colors. Coming from the U.S. where denim is king, seeing chinos & other casual pants has made me elevate my pant game.
If I would have to create an outfit from the East Dane shop inspired by the typical Melbournian it would consist of a khaki chino, tucked in button up & a statement color blazer. Now that I've been in Melbourne for almost two months now, I look forward to changing up my style & rock some serious Australian looks.
