Take fundamental pieces to new heights with a dash of something extra the way these cool guys did.

Jumpers are a great alternative if you want to add a twist to your casual ensemble. Take it up a notch and pick an outstanding piece, like this number from Gucci that features embellishments and metallic-finished leather panels that Adrian Sim is sporting. The avid traveller prefers simple Parisian-inspired looks as you can tell from his Instagram profile, but after experimenting with something bold like this, he says it is something he will “definitely try again”. Great to know we have a convert here.

Juwaidi Jumanto, 26 (@juwaidijumanto)
Juwaidi is that cool kid around the block who is somehow able to throw on anything and make it look effortlessly cool. This normcore look fits the design student’s aesthetic perfectly, but the embellished top from Loewe’s spring/summer 2018 menwear collection gave the look a fashionable twist, which he had fun with on set when the cameras weren’t flashing. And that’s how we should approach fashion – with an open mind and a sense of fun.

Ritz Ang, 27 (@abouritz)
Like most men in Singapore, Ritz’s wardrobe consists of an endless selection of basic T-shirts and jeans. But a sprinkling of jackets in his inventory keep him ready for days when the freelance drummer feels like dressing up. This black Diesel denim jacket brings out the rock star vibe in him, and he enjoyed that the patchwork details allowed him to be in his element without trying too hard.
