Men in denim prevails under the auspices of American Workwear. Will Eagle, a freelance digital marketing consultant, gives us reason to look at the workwear style beyond a general facade and as a genre, influenced by epic writers and geography. Will and his fantastic triple denim get up is a pastiche of British past and American present. Growing up in a private school for boys in the UK, Will has retained the best bits of it’s quintessential “uniform”, while adopting an ever so cool nuance of the American workwear style. That’s right, I said nuance. Will goes beyond the norm and ventures to a segmented form of workwear, that which lives in a Cape Cod setting. Additionally, his denim shirt is reminiscent of Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road” (sans West Coast).
Indeed, a North American filter exists over Will’s British sensibilities, though the two are unified by New England prep and workwear. His style bears a unique patina of literary and Transatlantic goodness that fashion journalists like myself cannot seem to get enough of.
