Words by Matt Huxley
I was on a boat off the coast of Vietnam when the feeling hit me. A gigantic gut bubble that built in my stomach and expanded until I was drunk with queasiness. Stuff the buffet that was being laid out on the upper deck. Screw the stunning views and humid sunshine. I had issues. A short, calorie expelling journey later, and I was feeling better. The eye in the storm some might say. Day tripping has never been more awful. Needless to say, ever since then, boats have been my nemesis. I have never gone on a cruise, floating pontoons are evil and even a trip on the CityCat renders me apprehensive.
That being said, naval-inspired fashion is an area that I do enjoy. Blues and whites, crisply starched shirts and brocade. It’s great. Navy and blue serve as a great way to break up the ubiquitous black, yet still staying within the cool-toned, darker colour palette.
I’ve taken those marine inspirations on board in this post. Mixing a navy coloured tie-dye shirt with white jeans and navy brogues allows that perfect blend of classic insouciance that is my forte.
So whilst I can’t go anywhere on a boat, at least I can feel like I am in my wardrobe!
