Australians don’t try too hard. As a people, we’re unsettled by the things that force themselves to be: if our presence or opinion is unwanted, we’ll move on. That mentality is reflected in the way we wear our clothes.

Our way of dressing is simple, unforced. Those who do it best wear a white t-shirt with their fancy pants, or Levi’s with their designer shoes, or canvas shoes to casual down eveningwear. And, if it’s not working, we throw on something oversized. But, the best part of our collective psyche: we’re pretty unfazed by the judgement of others.

It’s the flanny everyone wants but no one can have because this gentleman owns it.
