Rock Steady

In Feature, Style

The classic rocker style gets a modern-day makeover.

 

At first glance, one might assume you’re the type to hit the music scene until the wee hours of the night—and sometimes that’s true. But upon further inspection, discriminating onlookers will quickly see the bigger picture. Yes, they’re leather boots—but only the finest quality. Yes, you also dig denim, but prefer premium labels in a dark wash. You’re well aware that staying true to your rocker roots without sacrificing modern style calls for a little of the classics. Like a glam-rocker cutting his hair, there’s no doubt that sometimes change is for the better. So, sport that stocking cap and layer on the flannel—even if it’s cashmere blend—and rest assured you’re still hard core.
