StreetStyle: Curtis Cox

  • Print

A flexible wardrobe is essential for Curtis Cox’s career.

Working for a tree service company, Cox’s style has to cross over between taking down trees and meeting clients. Smartly casual best describes Cox, whom we spotted wearing a statement faux fur-lined coat on Sunday afternoon in the popular Osborne Starbucks, where he was meeting his brother for a coffee. We stopped him for a impromptu photo shoot with his adorable week-old Pomeranian puppy.

 

What he wore…

Coat — "Winners, Polo Park."

Backpack — "This is my brother’s bag. I’m not sure exactly where he got this from. It’s called a Brazilian canvas bag, sewn out of different pieces of canvas."

Shirt — "I believe this is from Winners as well."

Sunglasses – "Ray-Bans; these were a gift from my uncle."

Pants — "Christmas gift last year from my grandma."

Shoes — Kings Skate Shop.

 

What is your go-to item?

"Probably shoes, I would say. You can’t get enough shoes. I’m partial to neutral tones — I’m colour blind, so I try to stick to things that are basic, light greens, browns and greys. I really like the canvas styled look. To me, the more natural, the better looking. If I’m going out, I like to wear a nice dark leather dress shoe. As far as day-to-day, I like to go with more earthy neutral tones."

 

Style inspiration

"I would describe my style as neatly casual. I work outdoors for a tree service and I don’t do much labour work anymore. I try and dress as casually as I can without wearing too much of a street look. I’ve taken on more of a management role, but I don’t want to be wearing a suit, in case I have to go out in the field. I do computer work and meet clients all the time so you still have to look presentable. My brother tries to stay up-todate with fashion; he has more of a European style. He likes to wear scarves, leather and slim, fitted suits."

 

What inspired you to get this coat?

"Actually, my mom. I was shopping with her and I put it on and I thought it was a little over the top for myself but after looking at it, it grew on me. The fur just popped out and I thought it was pretty fantastic. My mom said, ‘Try it on, it looks good’ and I took it outside and wore it."

 

Fashion tip

"Be yourself. I don’t try to dress like anyone I’m not. Often I dress based on my mood and I don’t try and set trends — that’s not me."
