#OOTD 96 Chic Geek The Smart Tracksuit

Tom Ford, you’re missing out! Even after all his daily baths, you'd think it would be too tempting to slip a tracksuit on, but, he recently told GQ America that he didn’t own sweatpants, but he did concede that he’s a member of a tennis club in London that only permits its members to wear white, and yes, sometimes he does get into the car in this one pair of white sweatpants, since it’s required, but no one on the street sees him because his driver pulls him right up to the club. Oh, the shame! Can you imagine?! Well,…
TheChicGeek finishes his picks of the best of the AW16 collections with CMMN SWDN. (See all the season's others here). It's all about the cropped suit with cargo details and a strong Chelsea boot. A new, relaxed way to wear coordinating pieces, team it with a simple knit. It's the suit of the season.

The word of the season is 'oversized'. The bigger the better. It just means getting dressed just got easier: one item covers all, well nearly. We've been a fan of this AW16 collection since we saw it at Pitti Uomo at the beginning of the year. Handmade in Hackney by knitwear designers Anna Wilkinson and Lindsay McKean, Cats Brothers is known for its quirky crochet and colourful knits. Putting the craft into fashion, their pieces are ingrained with humour and style and feel more art-piece than yet another fashion item with a creature or icon. Credits - Red Monkey Jumper,…
TheChicGeek is all about pink and green ATM. He's named it 'prawn cocktail & avocado', (you can see more here fresh from the catwalks of Milan) and it has a fun freshness that will see you right into the new year. There is a lot of baby pink in menswear at the moment, thanks to Kanye and his Yeezy. Don't wear it in his Mad Max style, but team with primary colours, like here, such as blue and green. Finish the look with quality accessories and plenty of peace & love! Credits - Full look Paul Smith AW16 Shot by…
When it gets cold we reach for texture: corduroy, cashmere & velvet. These tactile finishes make those freezing days all the more bearable. Savile Row tailor, Richard James, has produced this soft, light grey suit in a thick wale corduroy. The fabric of kings, it looks fresh and contemporary in this light colour and matches the London sky, depressingly! It's been teamed with a long ombre scarf and cashmere jumper and is the new way to wear winter.

#OOTD 91 Merrell Boots #Sponsored

The final warm days of autumn are the perfect excuse for TheChicGeek to get on his bike and fill his lungs full of fresh air. Wearing outdoor specialist, Merrell, 'Eagle' boots, TheChicGeek took flight onto his bike and onto a woodland trail. A superior hiking boot with 80s styling, the Merrell 'Eagle' is great for walking, cycling and with even enough support for running. Here, TheChicGeek, has teamed them with a classic red and white Breton stripe top and cycle trousers with reflective details in a dark slate colour and gives a whole new meaning to 'Fashion Cycle'!

#OOTD 89 Chic Geek AW16 Collections Gucci

You've probably got the hint by now that I'm a big fan of Alessandro Michele's Gucci. The fantasy of getting dressed up and, finally, being excited by fashion makes this a fashion moment to cherish and get involved in. It may not be for everybody, but if you're a lover of beautiful things then you'll find plenty here. It's not revolutionary, but, boy, is it good. It has so many references that it's hard to pigeonhole it in a particular time or place. If you don't fancy the checked deerstalker or snake jeans, then how about the logo belt? Credits…

#OOTD 88 Olympic Geek 5/5

It's over :( The Rio 2016 Olympic Games is finished and it's time to hit the showers. Post-gymwear requires a simple yet stylish approach to sportswear. Comfort is key and rehydration a priority as you venture home and flop into bed. Put those aching muscles into loose tracksuit bottoms with sandals and sports socks and go home to eat your own body weight of food. You deserve it!

#OOTD 87 Olympic Geek 4/5

TheChicGeek's fourth Olympic ring sees him take to the machines. Going hard before he goes home, TheChicGeek is showing off those geeky guns in a sleeveless running top and running shorts with gradient details.
