Vintage Style | Bob Dylan

Vintage Style | Bob Dylan

With Tempest being Bob Dylan's most acclaimed album in years, we thought we'd dig up some classic Bob Dylan. 

Musicians tend to have a musical sweet patch where everything they make turns into gold - and it's much the same for their style. For Bob Dylan, his early years (pretty much everything up until the mid '70s) were his best.

Take this image for example. It's hard to go wrong when you have a motorcycle as an accessory (although there's hundreds of leather clad men proving that rule wrong as we speak) but a good peacoat and your favourite pair of jeans are two wardrobe essentials will always work in perfect harmony.

The pea coat is a staple, so you'd be better off spending a little more on one. This season those trusty Danes Norse Projects (End. £284), who love a pair of Trickers as much as we do, have turned their hands to the classic.

They've avoided going overboard (so no gold buttons) but it's the classic heavy wool coat that was good enough for Dylan all those years ago. As for the denim, save yourself years of uncomfortable breaking in and indigo stained chair seats and get these Levi's Vintage Clothing jeans (Oi Polloi, £175).

We don't recommend purchasing a bike for photography purposes though, that doesn't scream anything other than mid-life crisis. And not in a good way.
