今天金斯透客特別為各位介紹的是來自瑞典的銀髮族代表「The Urban Hippie Swe」,有在關注阿美咖基穿搭的大大們,應該都有看過這位老伯伯的身影,不管是日本時尚雜誌或是當地媒體都有採訪過他,你各位一定都和小編一樣,對他充滿好奇吧~到底這位阿公是如何成為穿搭界的網紅呢?趕緊來看看吧~

:非常感謝您願意在百忙之中接受我們的簡單訪問,有關注男性穿搭的人們都有看過您的精采分享,知道您是以出色的攝影師或是作家等身分活耀在時尚圈,相信大家都對於您的背景感到好奇,可以說說您的個人故事嗎?

SN:I’m a 68-year-old man who is now retired and can devote myself fully to my style interest. Previously, I worked as a copywriter in business to business.
68歲的我,目前已退休,所以可以完全投入我對於穿搭的熱情。我之前的工作是商業界的文案作家。
I have always been interested in clothes, but the interest took a new turn and deepened when I turned 60. I then experienced a life crisis and sought change. I became a vegetarian, stopped drinking beer and wine and started training. At the same time, I began to look at old pictures of my ancestors, how they were dressed. They were fishermen and small time farmers and dressed in workwear. It opened my eyes to the heritage style.
Today I usually say that my style interest is a pleasurable alternative to genealogy.
一直以來我對於衣著都有興趣。六十歲時的我,對這興趣有了新的開始,也有了更深層的認識。當時因為健康亮起了大紅燈,我成為了素食者,同時也停止喝啤酒及紅酒,並開始鍛鍊身體。在這時期,我開始注意起老照片中,我的祖先在捕魚及偶爾從事農耕時,穿著工作服的樣子,這開啟了我對傳統風格穿搭的眼界;因此現在我都常說,穿搭是我注入喜悅對祖先的另類致敬。

:仔細瀏覽過您的IG後,可以發現早期2012年時,也是像一般使用者一樣,分享自己生活中的點點滴滴,到了中期後才逐漸改以分享單品或是穿搭為主,請問是甚麼原因讓您產生這樣的興趣呢?

SN:At first, I didn’t know how to use IG. I tried different ways. Then I discovered that many were interested in my style photos. This made me refine my IG. Today I basically just put out style pictures. And to get good picture quality, I ask for help from friends who are photographers.
一開始我並不知道要怎麼使用IG,我試過許多不同方向。後來發現許多人對我在穿搭方面分享的照片感興趣後,我開始改變我使用IG的方式,所以基本上在這都是分享穿搭方面的照片為主。而為了讓照片的品質更高,我還會請求我的攝影師朋友幫忙。

I have tried to post pictures of food and other things, but it has turned out that my followers prefer to see pictures of cool garments and brands.
在IG我也有嘗試過分享食物或其它領域的照片,但結果是關注我的人果然是對有吸引人的衣裝及品牌比較有興趣。

:現今男性服飾潮流主要就是以紳裝,軍裝及單寧風格為主,您最喜歡的是哪一種呢?

SN: I rarely wear a full costume, but otherwise I prefer to switch between military style and denim. Some days I also wear a blazer, shirt and tie. A little more dressed thus. However, it’s not fashion in the common sense. It has to have a touch of old school.
I try to post pictures on IG every day, of different outfits. Usually I start thinking already in the evening how to dress next day.
其實我很少全部都搭同一風格;如果硬要分類的話,我想會是在軍裝和丹寧的風格之間轉換這樣。不過有時候,我也會把較休閒的西裝外套連同T恤及領帶搭在一起,成為一種更多層次的穿搭。但這樣在一般的眼光看來,並不算符合時尚,畢竟還是得要有一些符合傳統的感覺才會被認同。
我試著每天都在IG上分享不同穿搭風格的照片。通常今天傍晚我就已經在想明天的穿搭是如何了。

:您有看過以及體驗過許多不同品牌的設計,不知道您心中排名第一的品牌為何?先不考慮價格因素(笑)

SN:There are fantastic many fine brands, both in Asia, Europe and the US. If I have to choose one brand, I say The Real McCoy´s. I like most from their collection. Unfortunately, their garments are quite expensive in Europe, depending on customs, taxes and other things. On the other hand, you don’t get tired of McCoy’s and the garments are mostly of high quality.
不管在亞洲、歐洲還是美國,都有用心的品牌令人驚豔。然而,如果我必須從中擇一的話,Real McCoy’s會雀屏中選。他們的作品我大部份都喜歡。但可惜因為關稅、稅金及其它費用所致,這個品牌的服裝在歐洲可說是相當昂貴;不過從品質面上看來,一旦入手Real McCoy’s的服裝,這品牌幾乎全面的高品質,將會讓您愛不釋手。

:您的穿搭可說是我們後輩引以為鑑的模範,可以指導我們該如何搜尋出適合自己的風格嗎

SN:I think you have to seek to find your personal style. Watch online how others dress and even look in magazines like Clutch Magazine, Men’s File and Heritage Post. The clothes should not only look good, it is important you feel good in them too.
在我看來最適合自己的風格只有自己才找得到。我建議可以看網路上其它人的穿搭,或是參考在媒體上如Clutch Magazine, Men’s File and Heritage Post中的資訊來搭看看。穿著不但是要看起來好看,更重要的是也要穿起來舒服才行。

:您非常樂意在不同社群網站上分享自己的心得,像是FB,IG等,經由網路分享讓大家見識到更多好東西,您覺得目前為止最推薦給大眾參考的是哪一種媒體?

SN:For me, IG is the most important platform. Here you will find the community you want to belong to and get new friends. It is common for me to first get to know people on Instagram and then meet them IRL when I travel, for example to London. London is kind of my other hometown and I travel there relatively often. I myself live in Malmo in southern Sweden and have close to Copenhagen in Denmark from where there are direct flights to London.
對我來說,IG是最重要的平台,因為在上面可以找到你想關注的社群,並且交到新朋友。我常常先在IG上認識某個朋友,然後才在旅行時實際見到面。說到旅行,倫敦就像是我的第二個家;由於我的家鄉馬爾默在瑞典南邊,離丹麥的哥本哈根很近,這邊有直飛倫敦的班機,因此我到此旅行的次數可說是相當的多。

:相信在您豐富的服飾收藏品中,一定有最愛的單品,能否請您和我們分享一下?

SN:My favorite garment must be an M-65 field jacket from Real McCoy’s. It is a jacket you look masculine in and that fits in many outfits. I also like that there are large pockets. M-65 is an iconic garment, not least thanks to Robert De Niro in the movie Taxi Driver.
我最喜愛的品項是Real McCoy’s的野戰夾克。我喜歡它大口袋的設計。這件夾克不僅讓你穿起來有男子氣慨且又十分好搭。電影Taxi Driver(計程車司機)中的勞勃•狄尼洛更是讓M-65成為了一項指標性單品。

:不知道您是否有來亞洲旅遊過?台灣是個風景漂亮充滿人情味的地方,還有很多富含特色的美食呢~誠摯歡迎您有機會來走走 ^^

SN:Thank you. I would love to go to Taiwan even if it is a very long journey. So far I have only been to Asia once, it was autumn 2018 when I visited Tokyo and also the in Yokohama. A wonderful experience. And so many fine clothing stores. Don’t know yet when I can return. Would like to visit also Taiwan and South Korea.
感謝邀請。雖然到台灣要飛很久但我還是想去看看。目前亞洲我只去過一次,是在2018秋天時到東京旅行還有橫濱,實在是個很棒的體驗,參觀了許多高品質的服飾店。目前不確定何時還會再過去,但這次我想去台灣和南韓看看。

看完今天的專訪之後,是不是很敬佩Svante Nybyggars先生的精神及毅力呢?
