Quite by accident, we kind of built a whole outfit made from Penshoppe pieces. Mind you, that’s just a pullover, capri pants and a pair of chukkas. The G-shock watch is, obviously, not from Penshoppe.

Now, the idea behind this look is to get with the weather. Quite literally. It’s been a strange mixture of cold and hot lately, and it’s already supposed to be summer. After a hot Christmas season and a slightly chilly Valentine’s, who knows what the weather’s gonna be like next–so it’s better to be prepared. In these photos, Teejay is wearing the pullover on its own–with nothing underneath. That’s for in case it’s hot. The whole look will stay the same if you wear something underneath: a wifebeater or a low-neck undershirt; that’s because Penshoppe’s pullover is enough of a tight-knit to conceal whatever it is you’re wearing (or not wearing) inside.

We were gonna try to see if the same look can work with thick socks peeking out of the chukkas, but someone (me) forgot to tell anyone about the socks prior to the shoot.

And now comes the part where we ask you, would you wear this look? Does the contrast of colors work for you? Share with us your thoughts!

    Wow, the color mix is amazing! Nope, forget about the socks, protruding socks/ visible socks portrays heat! The model is simply perfect for the pullover.

    • Thanks, Zeke!

      On hindsight, it was a good thing we forgot the socks. Picturing it now, it doesn’t really look good even without the heat factor. And we agree with you, Teejay’s body type lends itself well to pullovers!
