First I want to talk about the location. Near my house there are two forts who dominates the city. After years of neglect they raised in a new look. The news was announced by the Mayor followed by beautiful pics of the fort. Excited about the news I took my car and I drove to the hill to shoot an outfit. But when arrived there I found working machines, containers, trucks, and workers. The forts were not officially open, so I had to use one of the street that leads to the fort as a location.
Now I want to show you the kind of outfit that I use when I don't know if the night out is party or a normal hangout. The leather jacket (this time a simply one) used with a shirt, a formal shoes and a slant pocket jeans is the best solution of versatility. If you walk around with your jacket close, you're not so formal for a cocktail bar place or similar, if you and your friends decide that it's better to go to a party you're ready because you're cool underneath. In fact, once you take off the jacket the formal outfit shows up. At the end you wear two different looks at the same time, I always liked this idea.
About the clothes I wear my new “Ted" leather jacket by D'Arienzo, one of my hand made shirt, Dondup jeans (the only one I have with this kind of pocket) the Pollini shiny shoes and the Louis Vuitton Damier belt. I don't know if the location matches with the outfit but I hope next time I'll back up there I'll be able to show you the fort alongside the outfit.
