The Trickers is getting it together

THE THEME songs to the anarchic 1970s cop classic Freebie and the Bean talks about things that go together like, ‘Peaches and Cream’ etc and I think that the Trickers x Stuarts London collaboration shoes work supremely, with a good quality dark denim jean and a few other bits to make a perfect late summer look.

The brown or black toe cap semi-brogue shoe has enough subtle variations to merit purchasing both, with the lighter Dainite sole, triple and matching leather lining working wonders when it comes to wearing the shoe with various looks.

Stood alongside a pair of dark jeans such as Tellason Gustave slim tapered dark wash Selvedge. Drop in a turn up on these San Franscisco made jeans and you are set fair.

Or why not try the Grim Tim Nudie Jeans, which come in a slim fit and provide more colour than the Tellason due to the stitching or rock the button fly Edwin ED-55 regular fit for that wider feel.

To touch on that Brando-esque feel, a grey crew neck t-shirt is needed. You could rock a navy blue, or white, but today I fancy grey.

For an ironic look try the Iceberg Clothing Charlie Brown, with marled print pattern in slim fit, or the silhouette grey, with orange print, that comes in a darker colouring.

The Sunspel Henley grey t-shirt is perfect with single chest pocket is bang on as well, or the lighter grey, with contrast stitching Tomte Hugo Boss shirt.

You really need a long coat for this look, a Crombie rainmac or Baracuta Trench coat is ideal.

The petrol blue trench from Baracuta works well against the grey and the tan also sits nicely, for a darker feel the Minimum sky trench with multi-button front fastening is ideal.

Round the whole thing off with a Want Les Essentials De La Vie Ohare black shopper tote bag. This little gem has a deep interior and pull-out pockets, along with detachable shoulder strap.
