#OOTD 60 - Lumber GEEK 4/4

the chic geek outdoor style lumber jackThe final part of his lumberjack series, TheChicGeek goes rogue and starts to resemble an axe wielding killer, albeit a stylish one.

Still scouting for the perfect Christmas tree, his masculine uniform of khaki parka, check shirt and waterproof Wellingtons makes him the best dressed in the forest.

Copy his look, but keep it simple, remember, you want to be able to see the wood for the trees!

#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.

Andy Warhol Chic Geek styleAn icon in the making, TheChicGeek is all for getting his hands dirty - just don't get any paint on his all black look.

#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 23 Merry Chic Geek!

the chic geek christmas palladium bootsChristmas is a time for giving, so, this week, we give you two outfits of the day.

There's so much to do, this time of year, at Chez Chic Geek: hanging up the decorations, wrapping presents and generally looking fabulous, that he just doesn't know where to start!

In for a penny, in for a pound and getting his money's worth out of his collection of Christmas jumpers, he's teamed them with skinny jeans and Christmas red Palladium boots.

Kicking off his shoes, he still looks the part in his double breasted pinstripe suit and, thankfully, his geeking for the day is done.
