What I wore - GQ Runway

I never went to fashion school. I didn't know what a designer was. I knew I had something, but I didn't know what it was. And it could just have easily been nothing
- Ralph Lauren



My last update was all about what we saw on the runway during the VAMFF GQ Parade but I really wanted to continue with the theme and devote this post to my outfit for the evening - A new fashion label from Melbourne and a great Swedish shoe brand (of which I'll go into more detail on in the near future).

Hermen menswear is the offspring of recent brand split "Suit Your Style" and the newborn company has high self-esteem and no bad habits. The guys behind Hermen have achieved this by turning their backs on the more traditional made to measure styles of suiting; instead focusing on smart-casual pieces to accompany suits, sports jackets and winter coats. 

I was lucky enough to be given a sample of their new knitwear and even though I'm not typically into roll-necks I really love wearing this. The fit is perfect and it's 100% merino wool. I've been told that the launch of this range of knitwear is coming soon so keep a look out for it on their website.





This is a double-breasted jacket buttoned back onto itself. I love wearing DB's but sometimes I just want to let it hang loose like a single breasted jacket and by doing this I can have two jackets in one.

Axel Arigato flannel camo loafers


This is a close up of the loafers I wore on the night. They're from a great brand called Axel Arigato who take classically designed sneakers, loafers and espadrilles and mix them with different materials. I'll be telling you guys more about this brand really soon.
