Relaxed

Jamie’s outfit consists of the perfect lazy-day, lounge-around pants, and slip-on shoes. Attracted to clothes with interesting details and good construction, Jamie says that his style changes based on the occasion. Originally from England, we asked him about his take on local style. “I think that maybe the humid climate in Singapore pushes some people to dress down, and also restrict their options in their mind. I’d like to see how people dress around this,” he says. “I personally always like it when my colleagues’ outfits stand out for a specific thing, like funky socks or pocket squares.” Jamie can probably get away with a more relaxed dress code in his line of work, and says that his office is generally quite open when it comes to the way that people choose to dress. He enjoys that his job is creative, although it might not be the most social field to be in because his work is mostly self-managed. “I do believe that it’s important to be modest and genuine,” he says. “Smile, then the rest will probably work itself out.” Outside of work, Jamie spends his time window shopping, people watching, working on his fitness and exploring good cafes and places like Sungei Buloh. He also makes sure that he has a set contact schedule when it comes to making time for his family and friends, who mostly live abroad, so that he doesn’t miss anyone out. Managing long distance relationships doesn’t seem to be a problem for Jamie, though; he shares that he once lived in rural Japan for five years.
