ekskluzywny menel lookbook #58.

you guys need to go see this now. seriously, go to ekskluzywny menel right now and see the rest of this lookbook my boy kamil smashed. 

this seriously looks like it's straight out of a magazine. i was about to say straight out of gq, but personally i think it's better than gq. from the overall quality of the images to the clothing and the style, just on point.

i want to put up all of the pics in this post, but do yourself the favor and go over to kamil's site to see the rest of these. you'll most likely see more you like while you're there too. shout out to his photographer mateusz pawelski, as well. homie crushed it with the photos. 

see the rest of lookbook #58 here.

it's about time.

Childish Gambino's album "Because the Internet" has been nominated for a Grammy as best rap album of 2015. If you follow this website or have any appreciation for good music, you'd know that this should've happened a while ago. Kid can rap. 

To be honest, I don't even think this is the best of his albums, but it's good nonetheless. The list of nominees in this category are:

 

 

 

Take a listen to the full album below along with the earlier album "Camp", and understand why Gambino absolutely deserves to win.

adidas foot clouds

Yes, I am a nike person. Yes, I will continue to be a nike person in the future. Yes, nike is absolutely the most aesthetically pleasing brand for athletic wear on the market. Yes, the nike frees are extremely comfortable.

But holy crap, these shoes feel like you're walking on clouds.

 

I'm not sure what they put in the soles of these things but I can only assume it's tiny bits of actual clouds. It's like walking on a bed made of puppies suspended in a state of zero gravity.  It's like standing on a giant pillow filled with memory foam, only the memory foam is alive and loves your feet so it hugs them all day.

 

don't go to the adidas website for these. Instead, go straight to a foot locker or some other shoe store and put these things directly onto your feets.

The collection also features two updated colorways of the Jack Purcell x Hancock mid silhouette in seasonally relevant darker hues for the winter months.

nike roshe run nm sp "fleece" pack.

i know these have been out for a minute now and i almost posted about them when they came out, but i wasn't sure about them yet. the more i look at them the more i like them, especially the heather grey ones. i'm a really big fan of how the broke up the shoe with with different colors. i love the way the black runs from the heel onto the sole. the look that it gives the shoe is amazing. i love it.

getting your hands on these isn't an easy task. they were a limited drop and they were scooped up quick. your best bet is ebay, but they aren't cheap.

asos personal stylist.

Asos just launched a new program called 'personal stylist'. Essentially, the idea is that you can go to the website and follow any of 9 'stylists' (two of which are males), and find information on their outfits of the day. It's kind of like a cross between instagram, blogging, and asos shopping since each outfit featured has links and prices to each piece of the outfit.

 

Here's my take on the whole thing:

Pros

 

  • the dudes have decent style (well, one is solid most of the time and the other is decent)
  • the dudes have decent photographers 
  • finding pieces from each outfit is easy and convenient
  • it's a fairly unique idea and easy to use

 

 

Cons

 

  • the styles aren't amazing and for something like this they really should be on point at all times
  • the outfits are limited to items found on asos.com
  • there are only two dudes to pick from
  • the whole site looks really cheesy and kind of like a newer version of Teen Bop magazine

 

 

hopefully the site improves as people try to use it and they get more dudes with better style to feature.  but check it out and see what you think. Click here

red maps.

The holidays are coming up right quick. Since we can't pretend that during that time all your thoughts are going to be on music and fashion, we've decided to be accomodating and be there for you in your time of need. 

What that means is while we'll still continue to write about fashion and music and whatnot, we'll also be helping you out with gift ideas for people with good taste.

That being said, feast your eyes on the gift of the day: Red Maps.

Not only do Red Maps give you an overhead view of each city, they also give you detailed info on everything you want and need in a city center: Luxury Shopping, Indie Designers, Boutique Hotels, Theatre, Museums, Beautiful, Parks, Incredible Architecture, Popular Neighborhoods, Important Landmarks, and much much more (each according to what the city i known for and uniquely offers).

 

Their philosophy is simple: "We do not accept advertising. Stores, hotels, restaurants and places of interest are included solely because they are noteworthy and entertaining. Our philosophy makes it easy to be true to what we do, to stay objective and produce a beautiful product."

You gotta admire that. No ads, just honest opinions.

So for the worldly traveler, the cultural enthusiast, the cartographer who frames maps of places they've been, or just that friend in your life who loves finding cool things to see and do in each city, stop by the Red Maps Website and pick up some maps. for $10 you really can't go wrong.
