Chisanga Mubanga documents an updated punk look

This guy has no social media presence and makes his own clothes. How punk is that?! His hair is a mohawk for the modern age, and then taking something as conformist as a white button up shirt, guy cuts the sleeves off and wears it untucked with joggers and bother boots. And it's not just how he embraces punks DIY ethic, but how he takes the basic tenets - anti-establishment, youthful rebellion, anti-authoritarian ideologies - and creates his own look instead of dressing like he's going to a 'punk' themed fancy dress. Worn with a sneer and an arrogant jut of the chin, it's the clothing equivalent of verse-chorus-verse, or 4/4 time signature. When you know what you are you don't need to showboat.
