Jumpsuits & Retro Sneakers


christian confidential | christian thompson

Hi guys, I’ve got a new style post for you… well, kind of. I’ve shot this jumpsuit before but I love it, so I think it’s okay that it gets another moment on the blog. This time around, I wanted to be more bold with my footwear and decided to pair this look with a more retro sneaker. If you’re in the mood to stand out from the crowd but still give off a casual vibe, I’d recommend something like this. If the jumpsuit alone doesn’t differentiate you from the other guys on the street, the added pop of colour from these sneakers will! It’s cool, it’s comfortable and a little different. You’d probably catch me wearing a look like this for brunch or at a casual dinner downtown (aka every other weekend haha)!  If you’re into these sneakers, they’re  actually the latest release from the J.Crew + New Balance collaboration,  you can pick them up here.

Until next time,

There are only a few good weeks left for road running in Toronto and I’m doing everything I can to take advantage of them!  To me, there’s no better way to set your day in the right direction than a good outdoor run – the fall air is brisk & the colors are the perfect backdrop.

Unlike a climate controlled gym, your street running wardrobe definitely changes with the seasons!  Today’s look is warm, comfortable and (obviously) stylish.  My go-to New Balance windbreaker keeps the chill out of my bones and, like all workout gear, is a great way to mix in some ultra-energetic colour into your closet.  I’m in love with my Nike tights – not only are they super comfy & warm but they also show off some of my best assets #justbeinghonest ;).  A compressed t-shirt keeps your body breathing through the sweat – a definite essential for any athlete.  I’m a die-hard Nike fan, but these new Minimus runners (also from New Balance) have quickly caught my attention.

Shoes are obviously the most important part of the puzzle, not only is the right fit key to top performance but also very important in limiting fatigue and preventing injury.  These NB’s have a lower base – perfect for circuit training – but which definitely took some getting used to.  Pick up a pair, break them in – you won’t be disappointed!

 Until next time.
