Based on my last post, as you can tell, most people brought their style to the West Kowloon Cultural District last weekend at the 2013 Clockenflap Music & Arts Festival.
(Which I embarrassingly called “2014” in that post for a whole week, why? Who knows… anyway moving on.)
Here are my Top 3 Best of Style trends I spotted for guys last weekend. Enjoy!
+ MOVEABLE FEAST / Pulled Pork Sandwich 60HKD
Indeed, the most stylish thing I spotted for any guy at the festival is not a fashion accessory, but this damn sexy Pulled Pork Sandwich from Moveable Feast. Growing up in Texas, I was always a step away from amazing Pulled Pork, Barbecue Sauce, Coleslaw, and Buttermilk Bread… someone had the bright idea to slop all those together and serve them at Clockenflap. And best yet, I spotted them everywhere, on guys dressed super stylish, like our Gentleman, Ken, posing above with the sandwich in J.Crew and a very cool pair of New Balance kicks. The last sexy thing about a guy anyone wants to see, is a guy on a diet. Everyone prefers to hang out with stylish guys who eats anything he wants… and sensibly. Carry around Pulled Pork Sandwich! Eat well! Feel well! Look Well!
+ VANS / Single Flap Backpack 600-1200HKD
Okay guys, I give up. I can’t seem to find any more information about this bag online. However, it is VANS, and the color… the big size… the square style… the single flap detail with the leather notch… it’s all really spot on. The best part is that the guy whose wearing it, wears it perfectly with a single v-neck white-T, jeans cuffed just right, and simple leather shoes to match… meaning with a bag like that, it’s the bag that’s meant to be stand out and be the main style piece here.
VANS (an official Brand Sponsor of Clockenflap) is having quite a presence in Hong Kong these days. The best part is, it got me to REALLY start looking at VANS again as a viable accesssory to my wardrobe. And i’m 33 years old! I haven’t worn them since I was 15 or 16 in the 90s. Crazy. I love their upgrade… and obviously, I’m loving their Liberty London collaboration as well since i own two pairs.
+ FLOAT CAPTAIN SURF SUPPLY CO.
So we met these guys from Float Captain Surf Supply Co. for the first time at Clockenflap at the “markets” there. The market in general was so-so Hong Kong standard (trinkets and arts-craft high school variety), but these guys, a Hong Kong-based brand called Float Captain, should really be playing with the big boys and going “POP UP” with the likes of Tangram, niin, MISCHA, and THYVANE. I personally love the black and white cap. Can’t wait to hear, and see more of these guys.
