Christian: I like to dress 'nicely' with a casual but elegant touch

12/05/2018

My name is Christian Laurberg. I'm 34 years old and living in Copenhagen, Denmark. 

I work as a police officer and as an artist. I wear a uniform as a policeman, so I don't need to think about my outfit when I'm at work. As an artist working in my studio I choose whatever I like that is pleasant and that I don't mind gets ruined.

I'm 170 cm tall and I always tailor my suits to get the right fit. 

One of my favorite brands is Tiger of Sweden. For daily outfits I usually choose slim fit jeans and a t-shirt or a pullover. If I want to step it up a bit but still keep a casual style I'll wear a buttoned shirt or a blazer with a T-shirt under. I also own less pricy brands like pants and pullovers/sweatshirts from Selected and Jack & Jones and pants from Zara.

I would describe my style as casual elegance. I've always appreciated quality and liked to dress 'nicely' but often with a casual touch. 

The story of my style

I think I've always paid attention to how I look and what I wear. It probably started when I was a teen.

I like the Scandinavian style and that might be one of the reasons why I like brands that are not large international labels. I like to shop smaller local brands - even if they have the same style as the mainstream brands they have their own twist to it. That way I always wear something unique.

In my early twenties most of my clothes if not everything were from big names like Burberry, Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Boss etc. Later on I started to mix big brands with smaller and less known ones which gives a more unique style.

My favorite wardrobe pieces for the moment are blazers from Tiger of Sweden and suit pants from Les Deux which is a Danish brand that I recently discovered. I love their design and quality - their pants are very slim fit but have some stretch in them. 

10 wardrobe pieces that characterize my style: 

  • Black leather jacket from W.A.C.
  • Black coat with buttons from Hugo Boss (with a scarf for cold windy days)
  • Brown cognac leather shoes
  • White sneakers
  • Slim fit & skinny jeans
  • Suit pants from Les Deux
  • White, slim fit buttoned shirt from Tiger of Sweden
  • T-shirts, both light and dark colors from Mads Nørgaard
  • Sunglasses, black or brown from Ray Ban
  • Sportswear for the gym: Nike shorts and Iron Rebel t-shirts

Best stylish regards,
