The Knap Style of Julien Landa
Julien Landa is a Dutch artist who makes watch straps and has become something of an Instagram menswear sensation. He used to make his own clothes when money was tight, but as his finances got better, he discovered that the style of the clothes he made was similar to Ralph Lauren. So he started buying Ralph’s pieces, particularly from the RRL line. So his Instagram is full of selfies, mainly from the neck down, of Julien in his outfits of all Ralph Lauren gear save for a few exceptions. He’s got a good eye and a talent for creating lookbook-worthy outfits that still seem just-put-together.

The Stranded Sailors did a recent profile on Julien that’s worth a look:
fyi, “knap” is handsome in Dutch and pronounced “kuh-nup” real fast.
