In the latest STYLED feature on Oki-Ni PORT Magazine online editor David Hellqvist puts together looks that combine formal tailoring and technical sportswear. As men’s fashion continues to develop in new directions, men are moving past sartorial rules of the past and combining disparate styles to create their own signiture looks. I strongly identify with the idea of ‘techno tailoring’ which David explains below.
Techno Tailoring is all about fusing the best of both worlds. Look at your life; there’s an element of formal strictness, whether you like it or not. You might subscribe to a casual lifestyle but no doubt you’ll need to dress up from time to time. Instead of hiding the crisp formal shirts and well-tailored coats, move them to the front of your wardrobe. Wear them with technologic sportswear. But the key is finding the balance; no-one dresses in stiff, formal and starched collars seven days a week, just as full-on outfits of innovative high performance gear only makes sense on athletes. Neither of them work as one-way versions of your everyday wardrobe. Techno Tailoring is about mixing sporty details with smart looks, about accessorising clever streetwear with well-made and qualitative bits of Savile Row aesthetic.

SENSE Magazine brings this first look at the 2013 Supreme x COMME des GARCONS SHIRT collaboration which is modeled by skate legend Jason Dill and New York downtown queen Chloe Sevigny. The familiar assortment of hats, hoodies, t-shirts, and button-downs are all here. The polka dot print from the first collaboration also returns, but this time it’s super-imposed on a blow up digi-camo print. While camo is quickly being played out through poorly executed pieces , I do enjoy it’s usage in this line . The looks are rounded out by a coach’s jacket and sneakers by Vans. Expect the collection to sell out near instantly on release. Let us know what you think in the comments.
See all the looks after the jump.’
