The Sustainable Style Icon: Neil Young

The emperor of effortless swag.

“I vow to speak up and to do what I can to protect Earth”/Neil Young

Neil Young is a living legend, ragged rocker and glorious grunge guru. The emperor of effortless swag and musical master of sweet melancholy, of the comforting kind that brings you back to shore whenever it seems like your golden heart is lost at sea. He’s the hurricane of his own hit. There is calm in his eyes. Living the hippie dream while simultaneously changing constantly. Staying true to the muse and current to the age of time. Pono is a perfect example of this and so is his climate change fighting causes and criticism of corrupt cooperations. Or as he puts it, in a fairly fresh interview with Howard Stern:
– I’m a famous person, I wanna do something good and if I can’t do something good I’ll probably die trying.
A statement we find equally inspiring to his signature style since the 1970’s: aged army jacket, plaided flannel and denim to die for. Director Paul Thomas Anderson lifted the look for Joaquin Phoenix’s character in Inherent Vice and Supreme recently snapped him to front their latest campaign. Young forever.
