#OOTD 58 - Lumber GEEK 2/4

The Chic Geek woodman lumberjack style ootdNever one to be shy about getting his chopper out, TheChicGeek is armed and dangerous in this lumberjack inspired OOTD. 

Those towering pines don’t stand a chance with TheChicGeek in his classic black and red buffalo check. Legend has it this distinctive Scottish pattern, known for centuries as Rob Roy, was dubbed ‘Buffalo Check Plaid’ by American outdoor specialist Woolrich (circa 1850) in honour of the small herd of buffalo the designer owned in central Pennsylvania.

#OOTD 54 - Warhol GEEK 2/4

The Chic Geek andy warhol selfie polaroidIf only Andy Warhol was alive today to see the rise of the selfie. A pioneer of self promotion, the king of pop art knew exactly the power of his own image.

TheChicGeek, on the other hand, has become a pop icon in the men's bloggersphere, thanks to his stylish persona. The coolest geek in town, he knows exactly how classic and chic a black leather jacket, Breton striped top and denim jeans can be.

Never one to shy away from the camera, watch as The Chic Geek turns himself into a work of art.

#OOTD 53 - Warhol GEEK 1/4

The Chic Geek as andy warhol leaving the factoryThe American pop artist, Andy Warhol, embodies modern male dressing: slim shapes in simple clean lines. The model of the 1960s Beatnik, Warhol, in his early career, liked to stick to his uniform of dark denim, striped Breton tops and leather jackets.

A master of his own image, TheChicGeek couldn't help but try his hand at becoming Andy Warhol, well, for 15 minutes at least!

Tonight, Matthew...

New Look Menswear The Chic GeekIt's a very exciting week at New Look, this week, as they open the first of their menswear only stores. 

The first in a whole raft of UK men's destinations open in Portsmouth and Wigan, followed swiftly by Manchester Trafford and Merry Hill. 

TheChicGeek wanted to showcase the best of the new men's AW15 New Look collection. Centred around the luxury suede shacket - hitting stores in the next couple of weeks - TheChicGeek's look is a smart casual mix of slim grey jeans, knitted roll neck, leather belt and chocolate coloured suede desert boots.

Perfect for that stylish autumnal walk no matter how moody the weather!

#OOTD 50 - Chic Geek Collections - Dsquared2 4/6

The Chic Geek in dsquaredTrying his best to keep his fringing out of the torrential autumn rain, TheChicGeek sought shelter in one of London's finest Georgian arcades.

Wearing one of the key pieces from the Dsquared2 catwalk, TheChicGeek opted to dress up this typical cowboy style leather jacket for evening with a printed shirt and embroidered cropped trousers, all from the same collection.

The result is something on the Mexican border - one part cowboy, one part Mexican fiesta and plenty of ChicGeek!

The Chic Geek Louis Vuitton menswear style Louis Vuitton's men's collection for AW15 looked to the British designer and artist, Christoper Nemeth, for inspiration. 

Nemeth considered making clothes as one of his artistic practices. Amongst his trademarks are deconstructed tailored suits and drawings/illustrations depicting thread, needle and hands - the making of clothes - which are also featured on clothing accessories, furniture and more.

Louis Vuitton Nemeth catwalk menswearBorn in Birmingham, England, he moved to London in 1979 to study painting at Camberwell College of Arts. While he continued to paint after university, he also taught himself pattern cutting and sewing, making his own clothes out of discarded post bags and canvas from his paintings, which he then started to sell at Kensington Market. 

In 1986, Nemeth moved his base to Tokyo, where the Christopher Nemeth store continues to be a permanent showcase and landmark of his work. He died in 2010.

Kim Jones has used Nemeth's Celtic-like knots as the bold signature of the new Louis Vuitton men's collection.
