The DD Fashion Spotlight!
Adam and Byron are two stylish young men living in 1980s London. They're making their way in the world, trying to look cool and succeeding mightily! Both have their typical looks that properly characterises them but they both also like to experiment and mix and match too. Adam is a writer and doesn't like to be seen to try too hard, but he really does like to look good. His trademark is his long grey overcoat, it goes with everything. Byron does a bit of this and a bit of that, even dabbling in porn, he DOES try really hard with his appearance. His trademark is his New Romantic Teddy-boy look.
Adam's typical look is his heavy tweed woolen overcoat. It keeps him warm in the chilly London winter, and it unifies every outfit. But he's not above trying new things, experimenting with patterned shirts and jumpers. Typically he likes to wear a single coloured jumper or T-shirt and tapered trousers with simple shoes.
Byron is a very stylish guy. In the 80s he would have been seen as a New Romantic, but the outfit also has tinges of the 1950s Teddy-boy about it; with his styled pompadour hair, the knee-length coat, cane and dressy look. Now we'd think of him as a Gothic vampire! He's gorgeous and he knows it. A style icon for any era.
Both men represent different 80s fashion archetypes in a more realistic and natural way than a lot of our spotlighted features. Adam and Byron are both comic characters but their clothing is fully realistic for the time they're from.

Two contrasting styles, both fit for an era. Really, really neat. Can't help but be reminded how desperately I need to update my own wardrobe^^
