{Vintage} CLOTHING & LIFESTYLE [past/present/future]

{STYLE WISE} Invoking Jim Morrison . . .

JIM MORRISON - you are not my enemy

For the last while we’ve been a little obsessed, or encouraged, by Jim Morrison’s ghost. You cannot deny this guy has style. Ever since the teenage years (weird to say), there’s been a fascination with this bit of a God.

An idol in all respects…I had one of my very first writing gigs doing a style summary of the legend for the website, Everyguyed, which still operates today as an online source for men’s style and tips for your everyday when you’re a guy. I remember the vivid rush whilst composing the words to describe this very 70s tainted, easy-breezy, laid back, effortless, easy cool.

Some might point fingers at the snake skin and leather (‘Lizard King’, after all), but I think it was in his soul. It was a cool, dark, anointed spirit that still contemplates to this day.

As fate would have it, I also wrote a piece regarding men’s vintage clothing staples and tips for finding and incorporating these pieces into your style. So, if you want a piece of my {past}, do check it out!

I think a Style {IDOL} is due!

And if you want to channel the spirits. Do so by browsing the {SHOP}, and by seeking the one that speaks to you. That’s what we always do.


Until next time,

  1. I do agree with you that Jim Morrison’s fashion sense was way before his time. He could be walking down the street today, and no one would think he looked outdated. He was a true visionary… I hope you don’t mind, but I reblogged your piece on my website:

      We are greatly obliged! Thanks for the shout out :-) We truly appreciate it. Great blog, btw. Jim Morrison is definitely a true IDOL of ours. Glad you think so also.
