3. Storage Units
As an on-the-go photographer, it’s important to be protected from the elements and have plenty of storage space.
Sometimes I’ll throw a tough waterproof jacket, like this Barbour, over a lighter fatigue to take advantage of it’s multitude of pockets. The beauty of workwear pieces is the practicality of their design, helping the wearer keep secure and organized while working.
The wide brimmed hat is one of the oldest “workwear” pieces. It protects from heat, rain, snow, and keeps the sun out of your eyes. Crushable felt hats like this have been a staple for outdoorsmen for centuries.
I’ve been wearing these jeans for so long that my Iphone left it’s mark. This is one of the reasons we often suggest storing your cellphone in your jacket pocket, but I kind of like it!
With these boots I get all the function of a tried and true desert boot, but with the single monk strap, add a touch of formality.
