Geoff is a person whose personal style possesses a dynamic quality to it, something which mirrors their equally dynamic personality. Being a Gender Queer person currently studying Equity and Sexual Diversity Studies, they stress that “everything they engage is political, and that their style has continuously changed over the years according to how they politicize at the moment”.
- Check out their personal Website that includes their personal writings here.
- Their collaborating Zine Project with their partner Clementine here.
- Their personal Tumblr.
They describe their style as “Urban, casual yet vibrant”, and cite growing up loving Hip Hop, Grunge and Sports culture as being the defining influences to the way they dress - their wardrobe consisting of many basketball jerseys, bucket hats, snapbacks ,and various pairs of Jordan and Nikes.
As a proud Torontonian, they are always looking for cool new Canadian brands; the reason for that being the costly delivery rates from his favourite overseas brands such as New York’s Supreme. They started researching Toronto Urban brands, as they realised they felt more of a connection and loyalty to the City.
As a result of their specific taste, they usually choose to order things online, or from the Toronto based Skate shop Adrift, Mutton Head, or American Apparel.
The day I shot them, they wore 6 different outfits:
- First, a Toronto Jersey shirt from local store Common Thread, with black Adidas tracksuits bottoms, paired with a black Supreme snapback a pair of black Nike Cortez.
- Second, a Chicago Bulls jersey bought from Vintage Clothing Store Exile in Kensington Market in Toronto.
- Third, a bucket hat and t-shirt from Canadian brand Raised by Wolves, matched with a pair of shiny black Jordans XI.
- Fourth, a purple Mutton Head t-shirt with shorts, with a snapback from Raised by Wolves and a pair of amazing Nike Flyknit Lunar.
- The fifth outfit consisted of a T-shirt with a “Fame Sucks” logo from Hall of Fame, which they actually tie-dyed themselves in pink. They put it together with denim cut-off shorts from American Apparel and a pair of Timberlands.
- Lastly, The sixth outfit was a t-shirt with a rose logo from Toronto-based brand Untitled & Co, with a beige Baseball jersey from American Apparel, with a pair of black shorts and Vans SK-8Hi's, and a snapback from Ottowa-based label Red Crown Co.
The ultimate urbanite.
