Hope you’re all well and your week so far is going stellar.
This evenings’ ‘Man Behind The Menswear’ is Netherlands based Morteza aka @mori.nl. Morteza’s feed is constantly filled with shades of blue and a vast collection of LVC threads. Not to mention one of THE best fitting LVC denim jackets I have ever seen!
His English isn’t great but for me that doesn’t matter. What does matter is this chap’s style and love for Denim and boots. Plus he can pull of a fedora and, let’s be honest, not many of us can.
MEET THE MAN BEHIND THE MENSWEAR
NAME: Morteza aka @mori.nl
LOCATION: Utrecht, Netherlands
OCCUPATION: Menswear Fashion
1. So Why Instagram?
I love Instagram and can’t live without it. Most fashion pages and the best fashion people have Instagram now, I’m really close to Instagram.
2. Why Denim, Boots, Workwear, Ruggedness?
I can see myself wearing the similar outfits it’s still handy. The boot I wear is great, something rugged and work wear.
3. What are your thoughts on the rise in popularity of “Instafashion” and the community it is creating?
I like the way Instagram is going. In my opinion, by allowing accounts to clearly show a collection of your own photos. The community among many others is really embracing. For me, is it about telling & showing my story.
4. Top 3 brands to shop and why?
5. Where’s your favourite place to shop these brands?
In Utrecht, Netherlands.
6. When did you decide to voice and share your love for your clobber on social media?
I started my Instagram a few years back but wasn’t really serious until 2 years ago when I moved to the Netherlands.
7. What’s the secret behind your great images; Who takes them? When are they taken? How do you capture the magic your followers enjoy so much?
Having a second pair of hands definitely helps with creating. I ask my friends or sometimes some people on the street to help me with my shots, some of my friends take good pictures and add a nice touch to my photos. Most of my photos are taken in Utrecht, Netherlands. I take a bunch of action shots and then scrutinize and find the perfect shot.
8. What feeds do you like to follow and check in on? Who should we check out?
9. What tips would you give new starters on Instagram to help them get there feed off the ground and successful?
Try to find and develop your own style and don’t be afraid to try something new. Don’t be focused on how many followers you have or how many likes you get. Just enjoy the photos you put out.
10. And Lucky Last, You’re going to be stranded on a desert island and you can take 1 outfit (4 items) Only with you.
What would they be? And Why?
Easy. LVC jeans, jacket & white tee with Timberland boots.
Thanks Morteza buddy, it was short but certainly sweet! So many shades of blue to use on your feed boss I was spoilt for choice. Keep up the top work Morteza. I look forward to seeing more of you rocking the Denim threads in the future!
Ok so next week we are kickstarting the end of November with a brilliant 10@10 on USA based @shockoe_atelier. Matt Rho (Co-Founder) took some time out for us here at @clobbercalm and educated us with what it is that makes himself and the Shockoe Atelier clock tick. They will have a 20% discount code (GOBBLE20) site-wide from Thu-Sun.
We have also been chatting to Matt about a project for 2017 that is going to be extremely fun. More of that on Monday 😀
Thursday sees us drag Jens into the spotlight, most of you will know him via his IG feed that you can find at @sel.vage. A denim and boot enthusiast (surprise, surprise) Jens posts regular on his wears and fades whilst boasting some great patina on his wings.
So I reckon that’s probably all from me this week although, I do have one last shout out, the boys behind @sosobrothers through sosoclothing.se will be selling all their jeans & jackets (customised by you) at a discount this Friday (25th Nov). You can build your own jeans at a 40% discount and your own jacket at a 30% discount from 7am CET. It’s worth a look dudes, there are some top options on there.
Anyways have a cracking weekend peeps and see you all Monday! Plus don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE to the feed in the footer.
Chow for now.
