Beatles Tenerife Oversized Shirts The Chic Geek

We never think of the shirt on holiday until the evening. A T-shirt or vest is normally the first thing you think about when pairing with swim shorts or shorts and long sleeves just seem too much. But, taking our cue from the Beatles on holiday in Tenerife, it’s time to think about a slouchy shirt on the sand.

I guess those pale boys from Liverpool weren’t used to the sun, had a limited beach wardrobe, and needed something to cover themselves up, yet it works.

Sun-bleached, it looks good over short-shorts and worn unbuttoned with the sleeves open. In fashion terms, this long cotton shirt is appearing everywhere and it’s only a matter of time before you get one.

How To Wear A Parka 2017

How to wear a parka 2017 Raf SimonsOversized parka Balenciaga The Chic GeekIt's always this side of winter that the parka comes into its own. The default sub-zero style, the parka has become the trusted companion to many a fashionisto. But, there's a new way to wear it:

Go big and don't go home! There’s oversized and then there’s oversized and the designers, this season, have really blown-up the parka. Wear it big, wear it slouchy and if anybody asks, say "Demna made it for me!".

If you can't afford a Raf Simons, buy a generously filled high-street version a couple of sizes bigger. You can thank me later.

Cats Brothers Men's KnitwearThe word of the season is 'oversized'. The bigger the better. It just means getting dressed just got easier: one item covers all, well nearly.

We've been a fan of this AW16 collection since we saw it at Pitti Uomo at the beginning of the year. Handmade in Hackney by knitwear designers Anna Wilkinson and Lindsay McKean, Cats Brothers is known for its quirky crochet and colourful knits. Putting the craft into fashion, their pieces are ingrained with humour and style and feel more art-piece than yet another fashion item with a creature or icon.

Big Foot

big foot issues treadle walk tallDear Chic Geek,

My boyfriend is 6'4"... That's not the problem. The problem is that he has size 13 feet and shoe shopping is a NIGHTMARE! And it's not just shoes, socks are also a challenge. He ends up cramping his feet into socks that are too small for him. Poor baby! Can you help?

Maria

Hi Maria,

If only he was a baby this would be so much easier! There's an online company called Walktall which sells a range of formal and casual footwear in sizes 12-19. You can simply click on your size and see what is available.

In a size 13 I would go for these Tredflex Chelsea boots. They look great with jeans and chinos and should last a while. Walktall also do larger socks, as well, so no more crushed toes. Just tell him TheChicGeek sent them!
