mint bands still...

I've moved twice in the last year, which means I'm still randomly coming across things I'd put somewhere and forgotten about. Found my mint bands from over a year ago and...

they still smell amazing!!! are you kidding me? Over a year and still glorious? Still filling the air with phenomenal scent! Sniffing one is like waking up on top of a mountain. For $2.99, these little guys are well worth your money and sooo much cheaper than cologne. Buy them. Buy them all. Buy all the mint bands.

The New rules of masculinity.

Menswear tends to oppose social changes. That’s to say that designers tend to work in contrast to the uniforms we’re meant to wear. Take tailoring, for example: at the start of the decade, as office dress codes relaxed in reaction to the world’s wealthiest and most powerful men sporting hoodies to multi-billion dollar IPOs, razor-sharp tailoring and double-monks suddenly became the style-conscious gent’s preferred attire. It wasn’t what was necessary, or expected. But then fashion always seeks out difference.

Five years on, and the contestants on The Apprentice – men whose unofficial role is to mark when a trend has joined bootcut jeans in sartorial purgatory – turned up in Lord Alan Sugar’s office sporting pocket squares (matched to their neck wear, naturally), tie bars (unattached to their shirt plackets) and ankle-bearing suits. Meaning? It’s probably time to stow yours in the back of wardrobe.

Your replacement though, is equally contradictory. With most men chained to desks, designers are harking back to a more masculine era, when clothes were about protecting you from sparks and grease. Enter functional fabrics and heavy duty jackets that look like you could weld in them.

These days, your inspiration isn’t a man who knows fifteen different neck tie knots, but one who can fix a gearbox. Here’s how to evict Beau Brummell from your wardrobe to make way for James Dean.

The key to making this look work is opting for classic designs. “A timeless piece is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.”

“Simplicity is what has made that iconic style and shape endure” – so don’t be tempted by avant-garde silhouettes or patterns. Stick to the classics and you’ll be able to wear that bank balance-bruising purchase a decade from now, rather than regretfully trying to recoup your outlay on eBay when trends inevitably change.

wrenchmonkees on hypebeast.

hype is doing a spotlight series on copenhagen called northern lands: copenhagen and in this installment they're taking a look at danish motorcycle brand wrenchmonkees. i visted this shop when i was in copenhagen and met these guys. it's a rad shop and they're a bunch of rad dudes creating some amazing bikes. they are one of the best garages in the world and build some of the best looking bikes around. check out video that hypebeast did on them below.


oscar wear.

Some looks from the awards this weekend + my thoughts. A lot of revivals of classic looks in menswear. I'm a fan. 



Love this. Love the deep burgundy vest and tuxedo coat with black lapels coinciding with the slim black trousers. I like the barely showing white pocket square and the freshly polished cap-toe shoes. Clean haircut and a bowtie that is not overly large and obnoxious. Clean. Nailed it.

Classic white tuxedo looks great. classic black suit is clean. Pharrell's spring suit (yes that's a thing) would make sense if we were in spring, or if he had more athletic legs. The shoes are excellentand the low-button suit fits well, but the shorts don't necessarily match the occasion.

Killed it.

I love classic styles, and you really can't go wrong with a black tuxedo. However, something about the fit of this jacket looks a bit off. I understand that he has become an enormous man from the Captain America series, but the shoulders don't sit quite right. There's a bit of an upward slope at the end of the shoulders that puts me off. The pique lapels are also a bit large for my tastes. It should look more like this:

Suit on point. Hair on point. Watch....questionable. Feels a bit forced and out of place compared to the rest of the classic look. I would've picked something with a more classic feel. Maybe black leather or silver. 

stark white tuxedo with the hair and beard of a mountain man and a massive umbrella. I dig it. Just don't love the shoes. 

yup yup yup.

A black suit that's too tight (see the pucker in the chest) with a back tuxedo shirt and an ultra-hipster gold chain? Trying a little too hard to fit in with the younger crowd. This was not executed well. 

modern take on a classic. That black pocket lining is excellent. Yes.

uniform experiment - python wing tip shoes.

there's something about a solid pair of wing tips that will always beat out sneakers. i don't know what it is, but they win. and then when someone who really knows how to make a solid shoe like uniform experiment, you get these. the python wing tip shoe by uniform experiment is firing. they're made with real leather and have python skin paneling which gives the shoe a unique texture and look. they offer them in two colorways: the natural/black and the monochromatic all black. head over and swoop a pair on their website here

alexander wang x h&m.

in case you missed this realease from these two fashion giants, here are some highlights from the wang x h&m collaboration. Can't say I love all of it, but some of the pieces are solid.

kanye west x dirk standen interview.

at this point, i really don't even need to mention the fact that kanye dropped yeezy season 1 and that yeezy season is here. everyone knows and everything is out. in truth, there's not much i can add that hasn't already been said. you've seen the invites that were jackets, you've seen the yeezy boosts, you've seen the clothes, you've seen the fashion show and you've heard the new song. what else is there? everyone is going to say what they think and whatever dumb shit they speculate or want to just blurt out. i don't care about that. i care about what the man himself has to say. in the interview that kanye west did with dirk standen for he talks about everything. if you really are a fan of 'ye, fashion or just want to know more about the guy you need to read it. jump over to the interview here, learn where kanye is coming from and where he plans to go. enjoy. 


Nike Rosche Flyknit.

the comfy casual trend is still in full swing. So treat yourself to some new Nikes. The newest version is out and available for customization. Here are a few versions I mocked up real quick:

Stop by the Nike id Website to create your own pair for the gym or running, or walking around in sweats in public, or running for your life, or yogging, or keeping it real.

my almost favorite flannel.

to be fair, my favorite flannel of all time is also my favorite shirt. So it's unfair to compare other shirts to that one. However, taking that one out of the mix, this is my current favorite flannel shirt.

this lightweight flannel is made by old navy, and is thin enough to wear as a normal shirt during spring as well as fall and winter. I generally pair this with a long-sleeve, white, thermal henley, some selvedge denim, and timberland boots...yes there will be pictures.

It's normall only $35 but right now is on sale for $15, which means you really can't go wrong.

It comes in these other styles as well:

Stop by the Old Navy Website to pick one up. Or I suppose you could also go in to a store and try one on.

kendrick lamar - the blacker the berry.

kendrick lamar drops his latest track "the blacker the berry" and it's fire. if you're expecting another track like "i" then you're in for a surprise. this track shows kendrick's anger and frustration as he talks about some of today's hot issues. this song has already started stirring up mixed emotions and gets me even more hyped for the album. king kendrick walked away with a grammy this last weekend and has an album coming out that's most likely going to earn him even more. stay tuned for the album, no official date yet.
