The first in the MY CHUCK 70’S series by SIZE?, gives un an insight into the style of London resident ALEX KASZYCKI-WILLIAM.
Recently it has become much harder to pinpoint a specific style that you’d instantly coin with the term ‘streetwear’, as experimentation with style is possibly at it’s most abstract in this present day. It is interesting to see how different people go about integrating the classic silhouettes we all know and love into their own interpretation of ‘style’. That is where the MY CHUCK 70’S series comes into play, by focusing on this styling aspect in particular, and seeing how different personalities manage to blend the same classic shoe into their own style seamlessly. The first icon of choice is the classic Converse All Star range, in particular the newly reconsidered CHUCK 70’S range.
It all kicks off with ALEX KASZYCKI-WILLIAM, who is one of many key figureheads leading the way in the promotion and progression of the streetwear scene in the UK. Not only is he a self-made business owner, he’s also heavily involved with the running of THE BASEMENT, an online streetwear discussion forum turned clothing brand, started out by a collection of friends who spent many a cold night camping on the street for limited edition product. It’s online presence has almost reached the realms of the fifty thousand mark, and it still retains its status as an authoritative destination for credible streetwear discussion. The initial Facebook group set-up has now evolved into it’s own website and blog platform, where regular content showcasing the thriving London scene is posted weekly to document the continued activity we’re now used to seeing on product launch days.
Alex’s style is a perfect example of that abstract feel we referred to earlier on. He has comfortably teamed up a clean, technical North Face piece with a pair of fleece tracksuit bottoms and some timeless black & white CHUCK 70’S. On paper this shouldn’t necessarily look good, but in reality it works well.
