Guy about town Tim Goossens shines on
It takes a ballsy guy or a glam rocker to pull off a metallic shirt. The man pictured, Tim Goossens, a curator at PS1 and art enthusiast, dons a shirt by Nicolas Petrou, a Cypriot and grad of Central St. Martins in London. A bloke who can pull off this kind of shirt mixes a part of the Clash and Bowie and even more modern groups like the one minute hits, the Hives, the Killers, and Franz Ferdinand.
I like the groovy charm of it. In fact, such a shiny bit would rock with a pair of black Hudson jeans. However, I followed the glitter packed inspiration and checked out designer Petrou’s website. It’s tres weird, as in he’s king of the “man blouse.” You know the man blouse: what straight men who tend to work in offices wear on the weekends, an often loose fitting button down, slapped loosely over a pair of denims. Petrou even goes a step further and adds a blocked design in the middle of the buttons that resembles a faux bib. Oh baby! And I don’t mean that in a sexy way… Guys with the right hard bods, should give his glitter number a try, but kill the rest. PLEASE. The “man blouse:” detail_shots
