I could ascribe my choice of colour palette to a sort of inverse pathetic fallacy, and then try to sound clever about it. You can't really tell, but at one point during the day the weather turned sour.
What really transpired was that I bought these H&M trousers on my last trip to London and realised I had completed an unconscious quartet of textured greys. They are a departure from my usual circulation-blocking skin-tight jeans (which are still alive, but have seen so many days and nights they're growing tired and weary. It's called "jean fatigue" and it's 100% real); they are baggier round the crotch – in case I ever need to wear a nappy – and tapered at the leg. I love them, but they're also a bit hard to wear (imho) because proportion plays a pivotal role in constructing a get-up which doesn't look like an upside-down parachute. What sold the idea to me was Haider Ackermann's latest Menswear offering for Fall/Winter 2014-15. Look at me, being ahead of my time and sh*t.
