Find out more about Jasper's Look
Introduce yourself and the brand that you are wearing.
I’m Jasper and I’m wearing Universal Works. It’s an unisex clothing brand from Nottingham, where I have been working for a good few years now.
What do you love about the brand?
What I love about Universal Works is the simplicity of it. I think it’s not too complicated. It’s a good trustworthy brand that is more affordable and not at the top of the price bracket. They take a lot of inspiration from 40s and 50s workwear and I like the American influence in there that is from the 50s or 60s. It sort of suits me and I’m not too bothered about keeping up with trends. I think it’s a good introduction to wearing good, comfortable clothes.
What have you chosen to wear and why?
It’s a new baggier trouser with quite a simple straight-leg trouser with a slight taper, with a polo short sleeve underneath and this baker’s jacket is the piece I’ve owned for three or four years. I think it gets better the more you wear it, it softens up and loosens to how you move. It’s one of the first items that was in their collection and it’s easy to just throw on over a T-shirt and is just comfortable and keeps me warm.
How would you describe your style?
Recently I’ve been looking at what the musicians that I like wear and I’ve taken inspiration from them a little bit — the 60s, 70s, Jarvis Cocker, Beatles and Bob Dylan.
Which other brands do you love in King’s Cross?
There are a lot of cool places to come and look around. I think Kitchen Provisions has a really interesting collection of kitchenware and well-crafted items. I like Outsiders Store, it’s very practical and they sell a bit more if you want to go on a hike, it has some good brands and A.P.C.
