David Beckham, Oki-Ni x Adidas, RRL, Acne Studios

I often get asked why I follow David's style... well the simple answer is I spotted the above picture in 2012 and was quite blown away by his effortless ability to throw an outfit together. This then inspired me to collect images and analyze his style in greater detail, which eventually became #wearitlikeBeckham.

This now infamous picture taken at the Y-3 10th Anniversary Collection at NYFW in 2012 is what put me on a mission to find the T-shirt (RRL Faded Black Canvas), jeans (Acne Studios Max Man Ray) and shoes (Oki-Ni adidas Tennis Hi). It took me ages to find each of the items, but eventually I did through the help of some of my followers.

The outfit was so simple and just perfectly cool... I just had to have it and hence started my passion.

About Oki-Ni x Adidas Tennis Hi
Oki-Ni and Adidas have recreated the Tennis Hi, circa 1974. This version was produced in dual layers of nylon webbing over a lemon peel weave and has full-grain leather overlays in optical white. Only 300 pairs were ever made and sadly I don't have a pair!!
About Acne Studios Max Man Ray
Acne changes the wash from season to season, so if you want the exact wash you'll have to go back to the F/W 2012.

David Beckham's Christian Louboutin 'New Orleans' Shoes

Christian Louboutin known for their red soles and high heals worn by many models and celebrities around the world, can now add one more name to that list... David Beckham. The shoes are made from a mixed material of black patent leather and suede and is a perfect pair of shoes for any black tie event. David finished his sartorial look with a pair of tuxedo trousers and classic white shirt to go with his Christian Louboutin New Orleans Flat shoes. While I was in London, I went to the flagship LV shop on New Bond St. and they let me know that he recently stopped by the store to purchase a tuxedo. Having said that, I am pretty sure the tuxedo in this picture is by Louis Vuitton.

David Beckham x Haig Club

David Beckham is now officially a scotch guy! The retired soccer star has launched Haig Club, a single-grain Scotch whisky. David celebrated the launch of the spirit with a dinner prepared by Tom Kitchin and was attended by close friend Gordon Ramsay and partner Simon Fuller. While at the distillery, David took part in a photo shoot with Tom Bunning. For the shoot, David dressed in Saint Laurent green mohair jumper (as far as I know the jumper is only sold in Europe only and can't be bought online) which he paired with a pair of RRL Straight-Leg Spokane Jeans and RRL Wilberforce Wingtip in dark tan.
Message me directly if you want to purchase the jumper, jeans, or shoes!
