#OOTD 84 Olympic Geek 1/5

Behind every great athlete there is a great trainer; passing on his experience and knowledge to the next generation of Olympians. To celebrate the Rio Olympics, TheChicGeek took to the playing field to train for that gold medal. Always striving to be his best, TheChicGeek is, here, channeling 'retro sports teacher' in a fresh white tracksuit and 'Chariots of Fire' type vest top. An Olympic gold, like true style, takes commitment, dedication and training!

TheChicGeek continued his journey north to the birthplace of Morrissey and Lowry - Salford Quays. Now, home to the BBC and ITV, these were the docks that supplied the world’s first industrial city. Today, The Lowry theatre and gallery and the Imperial War Museum North are shiny centres of culture and the perfect backdrop for TheChicGeek’s latest OOTD. TheChicGeek is rocking easy tourist chic, amongst the matchstick men, in a simple grey shirt and military green pleated trousers. Smart lace-up blue sandals, monogrammed belt and small backpack finishes this simple look. Bighead strikes again! Credits - Shirt - Jigsaw Menswear…
TheChicGeek headed north to experience the renaissance of our great industrial centres. The first stop was the heart of the UK, Birmingham. Arriving at the new and shiny - quite literally - Birmingham New Street station, TheChicGeek headed to the comfort of the new AC Hotel at the Mailbox development adjacent to the canal. With more canals than Venice, Birmingham’s Mailbox is a mix of industrial heritage and modern architecture with a recently refurbished Harvey Nichols, shops and restaurants. TheChicGeek went sporty in his OOTD with a fitted biker jacket in soft suede and new, relaxed dark denim jeans with…

#OOTD 79 White Out Red

Red means danger and while TheChicGeek perilously hovers off the cliff he looks as cool as a cucumber in his white seersucker suit. Roll the trousers, push the arms back and something, which was quite formal, now, has a hot weather coolness to it. If you find yourself stuck between a rock and a hard place, quite literally like TheChicGeek, then make sure you always look your best!

#OOTD 78 White Out Green

TheChicGeek uses the freshness of green to add bold accents on a base of white in this OOTD. From the quilted gilet to the rucksack to the neoprene boat shoes, deep forest green in men's accessories look great in both the city and at the coast. Who said Summer whites were just for tennis or cricket? Take a trip to the coast and feel those elements. As TheChicGeek can testify, it rocks! How do you wear you Summer whites?

Nothing is as classically masculine and maritime as the colour combination of navy and white. Not one to flinch at a challenge, TheChicGeek decided to take the difficult route of getting to the top.

Have electric car, will travel. Continuing his series of #FutureIcons in association with BMW i3, TheChicGeek drove East to see the first of London's new Elizabeth Line which opens in 2018.
