Street style is something of an untameable beast. Trends come in and out before they've ever really had a chance to settle down. In London, the urban jungle creates a whole new playing field when it comes to wearing clothes. Youth street culture manifests itself in the shape of technical outerwear, tracksuits and trainers.  Once relegated to the depths of suburban culture, this trend is now at the forefront fashion.

A highlight of AW17 is the f*ck boy trend, here at The Idle Man. Taking inspiration from cold industrial settings of East London, we delve into the life of the f*ck boy. You know the type. He's the sort of guy that will chuck his latest conquest that "hey you up?" text at 3am, and let's face it, dressed that well they're probably going to answer. Blending all of these individual pieces to structure well layered and hard hitting outfits, we've played on adding to the diamond in the rough aesthetic and mentality. Take a look below at this new trend.

Technical streetwear is at the forefront of this trend

If you're going to adopt this look, then it's important to remember a few things. Big jackets, tracksuit bottoms, white socks and a decent pair of trainers are absolute necessities if you want to carry this look properly.

The outfit below is a testament to this. WoodWood's A/W collection sees this eye catching puffa jacket take the centre stage. Technical outerwear is a must for this trend as we've already shown, and this jacket is one of our favourites. Combine it with Carhartt's black Marshall joggers and a pair of trainers and you've got the perfect look.

Another of our favourites for this season is The North Face Nuptse. A favourite of the hypebeast, The North Face Nuptse has gone from being worn in the mountains to being worn in the queue for the next Supreme drop.

This black Nuptse jacket, along with our exclusive Oiboy collaboration T-shirt, has created the perfect f*ck boy look. Bring the whole thing together with a cross body bag, and you're ready to hit the concrete jungle of the city.
