Dressing for the colder months

Melbourne has lots that make it different to the rest of the country when it comes to style, design and aesthetic swag. One man who knows it inside and out is style icon and music aficionado DJ Andy Murphy, one of the go-tos in men’s style.

I had a chance to pick his brains on dressing for the cooler months. This is what we came-up with…

What’s your favourite part about dressing for the cooler months?

Layering is definitely the best thing about dressing in winter. It’s a great way to combine your favourite pieces and have a bit of fun with your style.

What’s the key to keeping warm?

Definitely layering as I’ve said above, as well as scarves, beanies and a good pair of leather gloves.

How can a man layer up to keep warm, but still dress stylishly?

Always wear thinner clothes first; start with a cotton t-shirt then layer with a heavier piece like a sweater or blazer. It might sound logical but I’ve seen plenty of people get it wrong. Also, keep layering for casual occasions and stick to formal wear when it’s needed.

Where does one go shopping to get the right autumn-winter look?

My favourite stores all year round are Calibre, Arthur Galan and Ksubi.

Give us a list of the top five pieces a guy needs in his autumn-winter wardrobe.

A wool coat, blazer, vest, scarf and lace-up boots are my five must-haves during the cooler months.

There’s no doubt that footwear complete the look. Boots, lace-ups or low-rise shoes?

During winter, I’ll usually wear boots for a more formal look and stick to lace-ups like a pair of converse for casual occasions.

How does the autumn-winter style in a man differ between Sydney and Melbourne.

I’d say Sydney guys are showier with their fashion and labels while Melburnians have fun mixing things up – we’re definitely more adventurous with our style.

Who does it better?

That’s a no brainer; definitely Melbourne.
