SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
VICTOR de DOUZA TALKS ABOUT HIS 9th  OUTFIT

 

What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
Corduroy camouflage Blazer, M151
Corduroy khaki pant, Gap
Oatmeal polo shirt, Nautica
Bow tie By Steven Alan
Navy sneaker by New Balance

 

 

 

How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
I first fell in love with the casual feeling of the blazer. I wanted to match the entire look with this feeling. I started by adding the pants and built up the look with more casual elements that resemble a suit.

 

 

 

Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
This was definitely planned. I wanted to match color and texture.

 

 


On a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
9

 

 

What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
The corduroy and the tones in the print are the elements that make this a casual look. The irony in this look is the setup of a suit.

 

 

 

How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
I love this look! I would wear this over and over again if the opportunity presented its self.

 

 

 

There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to the what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
Whenever I use this look I have a feeling of comfort and freedom that I do not normally get with most of my other outfits. Plus I can wear sneakers and still look great.
