Winter is well and truly upon us and whilst the cool temps may not be everyone’s cup of tea, we embrace it here at Chapel Street as we gear up for 10 days of PROVOCARÉ from July 5 – 15. This year’s festival has already made headlines with world renowned artist, Spencer Tunick, and his highly anticipated #ReturnOfTheNude art installations. If you weren’t able to make it to PROVOCARÉ’s inaugural year in 2017, get the calendar out, text your girlfriend, boyfriend (or both!) and be prepared to have your colourful minds blown!

Gentlemen, I’m here to help you put together the perfect get up for what’s set to be a highly Instagrammable evening out.

There’s no piece of clothing quite iconic as a good old leather jacket. Bikie or not, it’s an investment worth making and where better to do so than on Chapel Street? A leather jacket is the perfect match to most top & bottom combos, so pull out your favourite black skinny jeans, whack on your favourite tee and you’re good to go!
Set to be an ‘arousing feast’, rock Jack London’s Hutchence Leather Jacket at PROVOCARÉ’s ‘Dinner in the Dark’.

What’s often referred to as the ‘hiker boot’ has made quite the comeback in recent years and for good reason. Perfect for those rainy winter nights, this boot can toughen up most outfits and leave you feeling pretty badass, whilst still warm and snug of course.

Aquila’s ‘Kingsman’ boots are currently a favourite of mine, whether you prefer brown or black, you will not regret investing in these durable kicks.
You won’t want to go on PROVOCARÉ’s ‘Artwalk’ without these on your feet.

If the recent men’s fashion weeks in London, Milan & Paris are anything to go by, wide leg jeans are here to stay. While not everyone can pull this fit off – myself included – it’s certainly worth a try. If you’re game, head down to General Pants and ease yourself into the world of baggier denim with Neuw’s ‘Studio Relaxed Jean’. If you’re a little daring and really want to commit, Ksubi also have a great offering. If you’re usually a skinny jean kinda guy, the airflow between your leg & denim is truly something to experience.

Stripes. They’re everywhere at the moment. Now they’ve always been a staple in my closet, but the fashion world has truly embraced them and I for one am here for it. Dakota 501 currently stocks a tee shirt & bottom combo from a label called ‘Pleasure’. The ‘Baja’ set is ahead of its time & will have your Insta followers double tapping like mad men. Stand out from the crowd at ‘The Presets’ this festival as they rock The Emerson with their killer tunes.

Want to know my favourite purchase of 2018? I thought so, The ‘Sherpa’ jacket from Rolla’s. It’s just the best. Some may argue corduroy has had its hour of power & should stay in the closet, but they obviously don’t know what they’re talking about. This piece will dress up any outfit & leave you walking out the door feeling like Yeezy. PROVOCARÉ’s ‘Erotic Adagio’ will leave you with CHILLS, so best leave the jacket on!

Well gentlemen, all that’s left to do now is grab the credit card, head to provocare.com.au and purchase tickets to what’s sure to be a spectacular evening. Don’t forget to ‘gram your outfit tagging @ProvocareOnChapelSt!

And If fashion isn’t quite your thing, lucky for you Spencer Tunick’s #ReturnOfTheNude installations require no clothing, so start stripping…
