Get The Look 001: Festival Style

Today we’re kicking off our brand new ‘Get The Look’ series where we’ll bring you some of the best street style ‘fits, from the festival field to the high street, and show you how you too can achieve those looks with brands available at The Idle Man.

For the first instalment of the new series we headed down to the mighty Lovebox Festival in Victoria Park, East London, to check out what kind of clobber the festivalgoers were rocking and it looked a little like this…

This outfit right here might not be one for the less adventurous dressers among us, but if you do happen to be a fan of colour and pattern, and you think you’ve got the balls to pull it off, then why not go for it!

Our pal clearly isn’t afraid of making a statement with his clobber and so he rocks this bold neon tie-dye two-piece which he’s balanced out with a simple all white sneaker and a classic pair of wayfarers.

If you’re a fan of this ‘fit then take a look at the allover Aztec print short sleeve shirt and shorts combo from Farah Vintage which we’ve teamed with some white hi-top sneakers from Religion and rounded off with a pair of Jeepers Peepers sunglasses in a timeless shape.

If you prefer the more monochrome approach when it comes to attire then this look will still make an impression without relying on garish colours and prints. This dude has got subtly down to a fine art, so if you like what you see, take note.

This effortlessly cool ‘fit is comprised of a semi-oversized white tee with a muted allover marble print, a pair of rolled-up black denim shorts, some black leather lace-ups and of course, the all important classic shaped shades.

Fancy giving this ensemble a go? Well, you can with Cuckoo’s mighty ‘Oil Spill’ print tee, a pair of skinny fit black Dryver denim shorts from Bellfield, some black leather derbies courtesy of Frank Wright and lastly Jeppers Peppers’ ‘Valentine’ sunglasses.

If you’ve been paying attention to what’s been going on in the world of menswear recently, or what we’ve been writing about on the blog, you’ll have clocked that everyone’s been talking about sportswear. Essentially, it’s about combining certain items seen on the sports field in our everyday outfits. And no, we don’t mean those full kit wankers; we mean something along the lines of what this guy has done here.

From the unbuttoned baseball jersey with the grey vest underneath to the rolled up skinny denim shorts, black wayfarers and a pop of colour in the footwear department, this get-up is really well-balanced and perfect for a day out with the boys at a festival.

We’ve put together our version that includes a pinstripe New York Yankees jersey from Majestic Athletic worn open, a simple grey vest from Native Youth, some rolled-up Criminal Damage Santino shorts, a pair of Jeepers Peepers Winston wayfarers, and lastly, to lighten up the look, some red Vans Authentics.
