For example this summer/early fall he rocked red BBC hats, but lately he’s been rockin blue BBC hats. This summer/early fall he was rockin black/navy Vans, but lately he’s been rocking his tan Vans. This summer he rocked his white and navy/burgundy trimmed sweater, while lately he’s been rocking his army fatigued get-up.
He throws on a pastel colored polo every once in a while and maybe a plaid shirt for these cold months. His wardrobe is so simple, yet he makes all the Best Dressed List. Gentleman, this should tell you that it’s not about quantity it’s about quality and swagger. I feel like Pharrell is unconsciously being a great example for young men with his sense of style. His wardrobe says ” You do not have to own 200 pairs of shoes to be cool, I rock $45$/$60 dollar Vans on a regular and I’m the shyt”. I LOVE IT. Now of course Pharrell has a lifestyle that involves more informal settings, so if you’re a banker or something this obviously only applies to your weekend gear.
I also feel like his sense of style tells all men that it’s important to figure out your sense of style and be confident with it– wear what makes you feel good because Pharrell surely does.
for the Urban Gent newbies… “College Cool” is one of the fall/winter trends inspired by Pharrell. Check it out here.
is of a rapper? Maybe now, but 10 years ago- NO.
Okay, so there were a few ways that I was gonna spin this article, at first I was gonna ask you all what cartoon characters would you like to see in the lines of designers- ernie and burt? barnie? winnie the pooh? lol… But now I really want to focus on why Pharrell and other men love these cartoons so much. Let me know what you think and let me know why you love a particular cartoon as well.
I love Pharrell for his ability to make looking fashionable easy. I absolutely love the style of guys like Kanye West, but let's be real- you Know they take a good bit of time thinking carefully about what to rock. Pharrell, on the other hand, rarely looks like that. And the fact that he's pushing 40, and he's able to wear what he wears without us questioning it, is fly. . .well, lol, he's like 35- which is young, but you get what I mean . . . Pharrell's style should not be taken for granted by anyone. Yeah he may rock an over-sized purple Hermes bag, but hey – he's Pharrell. And the older some guys get the more flamboyant they become as well. . . and that isn't always a bad thing.
Alright so dude is unique. He mixes skater guy + beach bum + hip hop + prep. Alot huh? Yeah it is, but to be honest he is actually one of the originators of this look that every guy tries to rock these days. And since he's an orginator you should pay close attention to how he dresses. Basically his style is a collaboration of different looks and on the average day to get Pharrell's look, you do this:
small/medium one-image graphic tee + quality denim jeans (that are slightly fitted) + ice cream or bape shoes or low-top vans+ trucker hat + keychain on your jeans + digital watch = Pharrell's style.
Now of course the easiest way to get Pharrell's look is to just rock clothes from his Billionaire's Boys Club line. But in general, the brands Pharrell wears are: A Bathing Ape (BAPE), Ice Cream, BBC, and Louis Vuitton. And as of late he's shown love for murses and manbags- a term he hates by the way, lol- sorry Pharrell. So rockin a bright colored travel bag with your threads may give you an even more authentic Pharrell look.
Mr.Williams doesn't just do the whole casual hip-hop/skater/beach bum look, he also dresses perfectly preppy on a regular- check out his latest photos from GQ Magazine's July Issue:
At the end of the day Pharrell is a world-wide trendsetter and when you add that to the fact that he was Voted The Best Dressed Man in the World by Esquire in 2005, well that just boosts his fashion credibility and make's him one of the most official Urban Gentleman.
