"I'm not a man, I'm a machine Chisel me down until I am clean I buy books, I never read And then I'll tell you some more about.. ME!"
On Saturday 3rd July 2010 i watched Maximo Park perform as the headline act at wakestock and literally storm the stage. To me they were amazing. Surprisingly it was my dad that got me into this band from Newcastle and wakestock was the second time i have seen the band, the first being at Liverpool uni just over a year ago which was a much,MUCH smaller venue to that of the main stage at wakestock. Paul has a quirky presence and appearance and his iconic look is suits with a bowler hat. This has inspired me to recreate this look with help from a dear family member (the brother) and his wardrobe, this images will be up in a near future post. Here is what i have discovered online to recreate Paul smiths signature style.
-Black skinny suit. £100.
- white smart shirt. £20.
-Black Plimsolls. £16.
Unfortunately the shop did not have any bowler hats in this season but they have something which would work just fine.
-Smart Grey Trilby. £14
