The smell of gasoline, the feel of buttery leather, gleaming metal, shining paint. Is there anything cooler? Alexander McQueen, Dean Martin and James Dean all embody the automotive enthusiast lifestyle and with it the effortless masculine style it projects.
A man’s answer to a woman’s little black dress, the cool leather and warm textiles of a wardrobe inspired by cars and those who love them will never get old. It always works and it never fails to give a little confidence boost, whether you need it or not. It doesn’t need to be thought too hard about because it’s so deeply engrained. It’s reminiscent of days spent playing with Matchbox cars, stacks of books providing a launching ramp for those cars to make impossible jumps from sofa arm to coffee table edge.
Dress the look up with a hint of Glen plaid or down with a racing striped sweater. Bring it in to your home with a vintage car seat inspired sofa or a carbon fiber tray to keep on your bar.
