A Nordic Drift Away

 For the most part, I like to regard myself as someone who chooses fashion over function. Very rarely will you see me wearing baggy jeans or hoodies, so I guess this look is my version of a "Lazy Monday". This look was inspired by the relaxed vibe of male models backstage at fashion shows. I love the shawl-collar cardigan David Gandy wears (left) and the Mickey Mouse shirt Garrett Neff wore at D&G (right). In my case, a cotton H&M cream nordic knit cardigan and Sesame Street for American Apparel t-shirt fit the bill. 
As a ski racer, I love the aesthetic of nordic clothing, like chunky sweaters (at D&G, right) and jackets mixed with tight black "long john" styled pants (in VMan, top left). The jeans I am wearing here are Nudie, a Swedish denim company who produces the best raw denim around! I have two pairs of Nudie's, and after tons of wear they mould to your body perfectly, and retain their dark colour! If you are looking to buy premium denim skinny jeans, I would highly recommend Nudie. They cost around $200 Canadian, which is fairly reasonable for premium denim.
The song "1901" by Phoenix embodies my outfit perfectly. Not only does it have a relaxed, airy feel; it has the perfect beat for skiing! I play 1901 non-stop when I am skiing. What do you think of my outfit? Leave your thoughts after the jump!
