An American in London
A Belstaff Story
An exploration of the Belstaff clothing and its longstanding connection with its British Heritage
After years of wanting to head to London my time had finally come. I’ve always been intrigued by the city’s amazing history, I was very excited to finally make the trip. As the rain poured throughout the beautiful victorian city, it wasn’t enough to stop me from exploring and snapping a few a photos. As I traveled day to day I was very impressed with the form and functionality of the Hereford Heritage Khaki Jacket. It was the perfect in between jacket that I needed to keep me looking stylish as well as protecting my camera and I from the constant drizzle.
Making my way to the Tate Modern museum I was eager to check out the Mira Schendel exhibit. (Seen in Photo) As I traveled to the museum through London’s Underground Tube, I couldn’t help but get off on the Notting Hill Station to take a few photos. The station reminded me of a scene out of Bernardo Bertolucci’s movie “Last Tango in Paris” because of its beautiful arches and vaulted ceilings. Upon my arrival, I crossed the Millenium bridge to the Tate Modern and was met by heavy winds, however the Hollington Navy Parka helped break the wind and the hood kept me pretty dry. The grey Barrington boots were in fact also a huge help as they kept my feet dry as I jumped through the perpetual puddles. They were the perfect boot because they held up in the rain and were complementary to a day at the museum.
Later on that night I changed for the evening. The Worthing Birch brown leather jacket was the perfect evening attire as it added a touch of edge to my simple outfit. It also kept me warm as I moved through the cool winter night. I really enjoyed the London mens fashion scene as you have a vast mixture of tailoring and streetwear combined. I encourage all and everyone to make it to London. It’s a cosmo and vibrant city filled with loads of interesting people.
