I absolutely love Halloween and it is one of the many aspects of fall that makes it my favorite season.
It may come as a surprise that male fashion and style is a passion of mine. The deviation from sustainability is not as much as one might initially assume. In my thrift store hunts for 100% natural materials taught me to search for garments made in first world countries as the quality is the highest and it means the garments were made by someone who was paid a fair wage. These garments also happen to be among the most sustainably produced, although incidentally only. The best quality natural fibers are made by techniques that have been abandoned or are now cost-prohibitive to consumers like me who are not rich. So I turned to the used clothing market to fill holes in my wardrobe- mostly thrift stores.
Being 6’3, it was hard to find garments that fit me so I ran a very modest side business of selling high quality garments I found but could not be altered to fit.
Classic male fashion is where my interests lie and Steve Mcqueen is my idol in many regards, especially style.
For Halloween I was Police Detective Frank Bullitt.
I apologize for not taking any pictures myself, but if any pop up from others on social media, I will post it here.
Sadly, the costume required me to shave my beard entirely for the first time in two years! Luckily I participate in the NHL’s no shave november for charity so it will be back in due time.
