So you might have seen the NWA Biopic Straight Outta Compton recently and been thinking you want to rock the look. Well the guys at The Idle Man have made it easy for you to lazily cop the look all in one place with their Straight Outta Compton collection!
They were so excited about this that they sent us some of their favourite pieces to showcase and help you feel like you can really express yourself having modelled the looks on the classic 80’s stylings of Dr Dre, Ice Cube and Easy-E.
Working in collaboration with Majestic, Dickies, Carhartt & Edwin and dropping in a few more complimentary pieces from the likes of Levis, Pretty Green, Herschel, Huf and The Hundreds, this is one heavyweight collection that will have you dropping dough on some serious monochrome stylings!
Get the West Coast look with The Idle Man
Seeing as the gang over at The Idle Man know their stuff we thought we’d share with you the standout looks they picked out from the collection, but, depending on your own good taste, you can check out all 31 items in the Straight Outta Compton edit here.
So on we go with the top Straight Outta Compton picks from The Idle Man starting with something you’re going to be needing more of as the Winter months close in…
This fresh looking Edwin Coach Jacket has a crisp collar and a clean cut look. With an (Easy) E embroidered across the left breast and black button down fastenings you’ll look cool on the outside whilst you keep the heat in!
If you want to get your Straight Outta Compton look in the bag then this heritage backpack created by Herschel in collaboration with The Idle Man is the perfect option if you’re packing on the street!
This all black snapback is so dope you’ll be in a huf if you don’t get on The Idle Man website to cop one! Jokes aside this all black snapback is nicely detailed with a handwritten styled Huf logo embroidered tastefully on the front.
If you’re going to walk the walk you need to make sure your jeans are on point, and if you’re looking for one of the best then you can’t go wrong with a pair of Levi’s. These 510 Skinny Fit Lupine Jeans are a modern take on the NWA look but they will certainly look sharp when you’re on the streets and bring a versatility that the Levi’s badge can provide to wear in serious or casual situations.
As well as these picks from The Idle Man there are also a number of options to tee-off your look nicely with the right t-shirt. Although they’ve not chosen one as part of their top picks we’d go proper LA and drop the Majestic Athletic Bridle T-Shirt into the mix, providing a strong logo that will stand out when teamed up with the understated pieces around it and help to pay homage to the Compton inspired look you’re getting.
