blue mint.

Yes, I'm aware that summer is coming to an end. But does that mean I can't enjoy summer activities still? Or that I can't still enjoy some of those activities during other seasons? Not, it most certainly does not. 

Now, if you're a normal human, you enjoy submersing yourself completely in water aside from taking a shower. Whether it's a lake trip, surfing, the pool or the jaccuzzi, we all love it. Blue Mint will make sure you look good doing it. 

 

Granted, Blue Mint also makes recreational and casual wear. But for me, what they do best is swimwear. I'll admit, it's a lot of money for a pair of trunks. But they're fresh to deff, and if nothing else, can help you pick out a good look.

 

Pick some up, or find something similar and get it tailored to fit as well as these do.

disciplines of dressing by art comes first.

the guys from art comes first bring us a short film series that show their sartorial standards and their style. 

i guarantee you’ve seen these guys before whether you knew who they were or not. 

art comes first is made of Same Lambert and Shaka Maidoh. They are designers and style icons in the men’s fashion scene that know how to dress and kill it on the reg.

this video series lets us into their world of fashion and sheds some light on what drives these designers to do what they do.

each short focuses on a different aspect of the wardrobe and is short and sweet.

i’ve dropped episode one into the post, but be sure to check out the rest of the videos here.

abc's of men's fashion - 51

wardrobe.

"To discuss a man’s wardrobe is really to discuss a man’s life. For the kind of clothes he has in it reveals his way of life; and their condition and degree of fashionableness will show his character…”

kanye x gq.

if you haven't seen the kanye pics in gq yet you must have been under a rock or forgot to pay your wifi/phone bill. these photos are literally plastered everywhere right now. i wasn't even going to post them because there's almost no need, but ye's style and clothing in this shoot is too good not to post. 

the way he pairs each piece and brings these outfits to life is next level. i mean, yeah, the high end clothing definitely plays a part, but just because you can afford expensive clothes doesn't mean you know how to dress.

check out kanye's style and what he brings to the table for gq.

levi's flagship.

You may or may not know that I recently moved to San Francisco for a new job (you probably have no idea since I haven't mentioned it before). First of all, don't worry your pretty little head because I'm certainly not leaving the cult. Secondly, I'm excited to tell you about all the amazing things I find here. 

That being said, allow me to present the first in a long list of cool stores in SF: The Levis Flagship Store on Market Street.

This 8000 square-foot store has a ridicuously large selection of levi's apparel, accessories, bags, stylish employees, and unique interior design using reclaimed wood from old san francisco piers. But I haven't even told you the coolest part yet...

Not only do they sell jeans here, but this flagship store houses several in-store tailors dedicated to creating limited numbered runs of unique designs sold in-store, repairing your busted levi's, tailoring your new jeans, or creating items custom made to it your body. Cool, right?!

If you're in the area, you need to check this place out.

these new balance m998hl's remind you the something?

new balance dropped their made in USA m998hl's in a new color-way and let me start by saying they look good. 

it has all the typical new balance design bells and whistles that show up on their shoes, like black suede uppers with a little mesh mixed in and some random accents thrown in as well. the other thing it has is the abzorb sole with a nice little splash of red which instantly makes me think of some other sneakers.

anyone else gettin' some 2014 y-3 feels from this shoe? because i sure am. not sure what i'm talking about? then let me show you.

 i immediately thought of yohji's qasa racer's. they've got a similar shape and more importantly the red accent on the sole. 

i don't blame new balance for rippin' the racer's, they're dope ass shoes, but it’s such a blatant rip. most people won’t notice because Adidas’ y-3 line isn’t as big in main stream, everyday fashion, but anyone who goes on hype or snob will notice it. 

what do you guys think? do you like the new balance's? do you care they straight jacked the y-3 qasa racer red? lemme know.

my first floresheims.

Just picked these bad boys up--Floresheim Ninety-two Ox in multi gray. A new spin on a classic. 

Floresheim is known for it's quality in production and durability on classic styles. And while I'll admit, they haven't always been known for extreme comfort or current trends, they're really starting to turn things around in that sense. Their new styles are lighter, more comfortable, and more fashionable, all while maintaining their durability and reliability.

  • Upper: Soft milled leather or milled leather with camo canvas
  • Lining: Unlined
  • Insole: Non-removable Comfortechnology® PU footbed designed for long-term comfort and wearability
  • Sole: Lightweight, durable and flexible XL Extralight® sole
  •  

    The Regular price is $175, but right now you can find them at Nordstrom Rack for $119.

    the futures league - women, trials and tribulations. 

    get ready for a ridiculously, awesome music video from the the futures league.

    i wouldn't expect anything else from this video and you shouldn't either.

    it's a wild, funny video for their song "Women, Trials and Tribulations."

    watch it below and don't forget to snag their ep Don't Be A Drag.

    enjoy.

    abc's of Men's Fashion 50.

    “The man who, as is often said, can get away with wearing a trench coat over his dinner jacket, or an old school tie for a belt, is the one who in fact understands best the rules of proper dress and can bend them to suit his own personality and requirements.”

    django django.

    No, this isn't a nickname for the movie featuring Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz. It's the name of a band. A good band. A band you should know. A band you're going to thank me for introducing you to. 

    This self-titled album is beyond good. It's unique, it's clever, it's creative, catchy, it rocks. It seems impossible to pinpoint major infuences because this album pulls together what feels like a different genre for each individual song--it's seriously impressive. I don't want to be the guy that says "these guys can do it all", but seriously, than can pretty mich do it all.

    Take a listen to these songs and then do yourself a favor and pickup the album, you won't regret it.
