Streetstyle

Carman Zacharias

Wearing a blue oxford shirt, boots, corduroys and wild hair was a level of chaotic refinement that made this StreetStyle stand out. The effortless gentleman look is a style many people struggle to achieve when it doesn't come naturally.

When asked if he was too hot in his Wednesday attire, Zacharias explained he just got back from planting 49,000 trees on the West Coast, starting in B.C., and making his way south to California. "So you get used to being hot all the time."

Spotted walking down Princess Street, Zacharias, was gearing up to hike the 66-kilometre Mantario Trail in southeastern Manitoba.

What he wore...

Oxford shirt -- "A friend gave it to me in California, so I have no idea where it would've been from. I was just there travelling, on the road for about seven months."

Boots -- "These are from a store in Palm Springs, like a giant shoe warehouse... These shoes have been everywhere, my other shoes the sole ripped right off so I had to get some new ones."

Corduroys -- "These are from a thrift store, but I think they were actually from Superstore at one time. They're from the Steinbach thrift store, which is the best thrift store in Manitoba. It's huge and phenomenal. All these Mennonite people give away clothes that they think are lame or horrible and they are often really quite amazing."

Fashion essential

"My everyday item isn't here, but what I usually have with me at all times is a very old fedora hat, it's like 25 years old. It's beautiful and very helpful. I would recommend that to everyone."

Fashion tip

"Step it up by being understated. The right people will find you when you're being understated, not too flashy... I find when I am understated I attract good interesting people; they'll notice the small things."
