Bob Marley: Swanky Rasta

by - February 06, 2015

Today marks, what would have been, the 70th birthday of the King of Reggae, BOB MARLEY! Like December 25th is to Christians, so is February 6th to the Jamaican music industry and many persons across the world, a day to celebrate the life and legacy of a GREAT emissary who, in some way or another, impacted every life that came across his message. 

As we reflect on the musical icon's wisdom and talent on this day, I would like to invite you to also take a minute to appreciate the Rastaman's equally iconic and (unintended) fashionable moments.

This very well could have been his Vogue or GQ debut. Am I wrong?


THE KING OF DENIM:





If you had a rockstar's intuition you'd probably be pairing your denim with leather too

Mastering the "Canadian Tuxedo" with patch work and a smile

When you rocking denim on denim and the music is so sweet and your V-neck is on point

...WITH A JACKET FOR EVERY MOOD:

Every rebel with a cause needs a leather jacket

Popping style in a bomber jacket and frayed denims was his thing before a Kardashian made it "hip"

Cleaning up, the hipster edition. Vol 1.

Buffalo soldier planning an uprising, equipped with a utility jacket.

SINGLE-HANDEDLY MAKING PRINTED VESTS A THING:

'cause a little Geometric Print aint never hurt nobody

Stripes, to keep the haters griped....

& when they weren't even ready you hit them with that ethnic print next...

...A GRAND ENCORE FOR THE LEGEND: 

Satisfying souls one colour block outfit at a time....

WIDE LEGS OVERALLS!! (With a rainbow patch), call this one TUFF GONG
When the dread break out the platforms, even the carpeting is injected with trendy vibrations

Running like a fugitive in Iron sandals like a Lion in Zion 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE COOLEST, SMOOTHEST, RUDE B(W)OY on the block! 

until next time.....
Do Good, Dress Well
