Andreas Wijk from Gothenburg, Sweden

Andreas Wijk 01


Dropped by Lookbook after I don't know how long. The first thing I noticed about Andreas's outfit were his Whyred knee patch pants, which remind me of jeans from Balmain Men.

Then his hair, his accessories. Swedish high street.


Andreas Wijk 03


A denim version of the pants above in one of the many pictures on his blog. Andreas likes blazers too.


Andreas Wijk 04


Play dress up.


Andreas Wijk 05


You can tell since he has the same muffler in more than one color.


Andreas Wijk 07


Though he has a sense of color, he does overdo his accessories. This outfit, for example, can do without the chain necklaces, or have them replaced at least with just one strand and a pendant.


Andreas Wijk 08


What I appreciate is his black and white mix of leather and hardware, though I'm not a fan of blatant labels.


Andreas Wijk 09


Lots of things you can do with these metal snakes, just be sure to take them singly or in pairs, and if you must wear a bib of chains, keep everything else simple.


Andreas Wijk 10


Simple is always better, especially for menswear.


Andreas Wijk 11


See what I mean?


Andreas Wijk 12


Andreas Wijk 13


He's also a fan of monochrome (background not included).


Andreas Wijk 14


Fine, call me a matinee idol sell-out.


Andreas Wijk 15


But his non-pop star moments are worth it.


Andreas Wijk 16


It just takes a certain wash to roughen up his smooth edges.


Andreas Wijk 17


Because apparently, Andreas has a big following in Sweden. I think.


Andreas Wijk 18


The guy joined the country's version of American Idol.


Andreas Wijk 19


But of course, even before that, he's always liked shopping.


Andreas Wijk 20


His sound may be too pop for some, but he does have a great voice.


Andreas Wijk 21


Did I already mention good color sense?


Andreas Wijk 22


Andreas Wijk 23


I will leave it to you to search him on YouTube, since I'm not a particular fan of electro-pop turned into ballads.


Andreas Wijk 24


Let us just end with Andreas.


Andreas Wijk 25


His love for Whyred, Filippa K, and H&M.


Andreas Wijk 26


His mufflers and the years ahead of him.


Andreas Wijk 27


That could see his taste mature.


Andreas Wijk 28


From boyband...


Andreas Wijk 29


Perhaps to style savant?
