Weekend Reflections x Mocha Salt

by Jeff Lack

An Aussie brand having a crack, I'm always about that. . Mocha Salt are based on Sydneys northern beaches and are giving the mens swim market a solid nudge. This label is making contemporary menswear for poolside and coastal living. A slick range of plain and printed swimming trunks and plain t-shirts mean they are sticking to what they know and not trying to be all things to all people, I like that. I love the beach to cafe to bar wardrobe concept,  which is essential on Australias east coast. The fact that you can turn swimming trunks into walk shorts is really cool. Add a long sleeved linen shirt and a pair of espardrills and you're all sorted for your post swim hangs...Anyways, here I am at home (in Bondi) pretending I am on the Amalfi coast cruising the shoreline in really comfy threads. If you like your poolside or coastal lifestyle, check out these guys..

WORKWEAR AS FASHION HAS BEEN A BIG DEAL SINCE THE 50's. We live in a denim nation, everyone wears it in some way shape or form. Many of you know I grew up on a farm, so I have some heritage in these pieces. This look is very much a casual, fun, Indie ensemble. From the rock n' roll stage to your local pub, it's hard to go wrong with these hardwearing, workwear inspired outfits. Double denim is one of my favourite kits to put together, the secret to its success is to be sure the two denims don't match the same. Also consider putting a colour between them to break up the two denims like this example. If the weather is cooler, just add your favourite leather jacket to layer over the top to great effect.

This is G-Star raw denim jeans and Levis sleeveless trucker jacket. Underneath is Brooklyn denim henley shirt, covered up with Jack Smith flannel shirt and down below are Belstaff boots that have been all the way to Iceland and America already in their short life. Akubra 'Capello' hat and Pacifico Optical wire frames complete the outfit.
