This Season’s Style – The Renaissance Man

This article is part of our Brews & Bottles Series.

Produced in collaboration with Backyard Opera.

As you may have already noticed, Man of Many isn’t just a one trick pony. Sure, our articles are pithy and entertaining, and our videos are a little Akira Kurosawa, a little Ivan Reitman; that doesn’t mean we don’t like to dip our oar in different waters from time to time. On this day, we decided to host a fashion photoshoot in an inner-west Sydney brewery for the sole purpose of delivering some fresh style inspiration to the savviest of gents: our readers. Why, you ask? Because we can.

The Renaissance man is the pinnacle of human achievement. A polymath; the cultivation of years of self-improvement, with a dumbbell in one hand and a calculus textbook in the other. On a treadmill. Whilst listening to a podcast on theology. In Latin.

He needs neither shirt nor reason to work complex equipment – his motivations ever a mystery. He fears no chilli eating contest, nay, chillis fear him – for his piercing blue stare and jawline so precise that if he stands 45 degrees east, its shadow tells the time. He’s the halfway point between the moment a strawberry seedling first sprouts in spring, and when its succulent fruits are pilfered and macerated to make trifle.

Double denim isn’t daggy on this dude, but decidedly dapper. He casts no shadow, instead, is shadowed, though has neither friend nor foe. A sack of barley becomes a place to ponder, a stack of pallets a leaning post for contemplation. He makes safety glasses look dangerous.

A beer is no distraction, though always appreciated. A glass wall is a fitting metaphor; a distant gaze through a single glaze.

With special thanks to Incu and The Stables for clothing, Toni Veziris for photography, Maria Maung for styling and Young Henrys for the use of their space, we bring you: The Renaissance Man.
