now bystandr

It’s been more than a year since my last post. Jeeez! I’ve been pretty much vacant from every form of social media. That being said, my personal life has been a rollercoaster! I’ve gone back to university to study interior architecture, I’ve been painting again and I’ve left my job. And we’ll not talk about…

bfn by blk

We all know my blogging schedule is pretty loose recently, but I’ve been busy! However, I’ve been working on this little project with the team at BLK and it turned out too good. I’m actually not even sure where this site goes from here. Maybe this is it. Maybe I’ve peaked. Can it get better…

the shoe care by farfetch style hub

We spend so much money on shoes, but why do we bother if we don’t spend the time, money, and effort looking after them? When it comes to my most prized possessions, my shoes, I believe in giving them the best treatment and when Farfetch.com approached me to share my secrets, I knew, I had…

an interview by charlie ronce magazine

I’m not dead, but I have been slacking when it comes to giving an up-to-date Fashion Nazi piece. I recently spoke with a friend of mine about By Fashion Nazi and life, I guess, for a project he’s working. “Charlie Ronce – a zine for the modern ponce.” Charlie Ronce Magazine | Hi Roman, could you…

north of cool by the doomed regular

I love a good home-grown brand especially if that brand originated in the greatest city in the world, Sheffield! The Doomed Regular doesn’t fall under my usual visual aesthetic when it comes to a brand but I’m intrigued all the same. “Based in Sheffield, The Doomed Regular clothing collection explores the concept of social change…

streetwear evolution by pia

Nowadays, it’s hard to pin down and define exactly what ‘streetwear’ is. It’s so dynamic and changeable due to its influences from skate, hip-hop and surf cultures. The style initially emerged in the late 70s in California and it’s been said that American surfer-turned-designer, Shawn Stussy, invented streetwear by expressing himself and his personal culture…

the white shirt by fashion nazi

It’s hard to tell someone how to dress and what the key is to great style, especially in menswear! That being said, there is a one piece that seems to so effortlessly make a true gentleman, a piece that is so versatile it can work with almost any look, and a piece so simple that…
