happy air max day. today, march 26th, has been dubbed air max day. nike created the legendary shoe line back in 1987 and has since created a shoe that stands the test of time. everyone know's what air max's are, you don't have to be a hype beast to be a fan. they come in literally every color, style and texture you can imagine. there are plenty of models that are sought after by everyone from collectors and average sneaker head. 

so if you've got a pair, today is the day to rock them. if you want more air max history head on over to nike's website here and soak in the knowledge.

npr tiny desktop concert playlist.

There's a reason that going to live performances is so much better than listening to a studio-recorded album. There's something about seeing raw emotion and intensity during an in-person show that you lose when you simply listen to an mp3 or cd or record or whatever. That's one of the reasons I love the npr tiny desktop concert series. check out a few of my current favorites. Disclaimer: most of these are acoustic versions of the originals.

abc's of men's fashion - 60. 


"There was time when a new trenchcoat could get you killed. Although developed before WW1, the classic gabardine trenchcoat, with its D-rings (for maps cases, medals and swords, if required), belt, epaulettes, sleeve straps,  storm pockets and wool lining, came into its own in the war. It was not official issue – officers ordered their own from the Army & Navy catalogue or bought them at Simpson’s or from the various manufacturers’ West End stores. The problem was, German snipers had been told to save their bullets for officers. So the higher ranks of British army slowly discarded any obvious signifiers of rank when at the front, ditching the swagger stick and often their revolver. However, many a new, young subaltern, perhaps promoted from the ranks (‘a temporary gentleman’), having spent a good few pounds on a dashing new khaki trenchcoat, kept that on. Bang. No wonder the average life of a junior officer was just six weeks.

By the mid-WW2, the trenchcoat had become a signifier not of army rank but of moral ambiguity, mainly thanks to Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, whose Rick Blaine favoured a particularly crumpled, un-military version. The trenchcoat soon became the preserve of men who walked on the shadier side of the street." - hardy Amies

Over time, the Trench coat became less about image and more about function--used as an over layer on top of a suit in rain or cold weather along with the peacoat. this became the go-to overcoat for menswear. Also used as a disguise when the ninja turtles wanted to walk around new york city without being seen... just saying.

Then it disappeared for a number of years.

As the dapper gentleman makes his timeless return into style, the trench coat has begins to creep back into the picture, and it's fantastic.

the north face - fuseform.

the north face began selling specialized gear to backpackers and climbers in 1968. They've come a long long way and have branched out from making backpacks (where their reputation began) to manufacturing all kinds of gear for the outdoors. 

Their latest release, and what is probably the most unique design in years, is the fuseform rainjacket.

This thing is no joke. It's crazy light--weighing only 11.46 ounces--and still holds up to tough conditions. the name FuseForm comes from the the process innovated by the north face of fusing strong nylon yarns at the shoulders and breathable polyester yarns through the torso for targeted abrasion resistance.

Rain is no longer an excuse to stay indoors. Stop by the north face's website to learn more about the shells and scoop one up. treat yo' self




  • Lightweight, technical rain shell engineered with FuseForm construction to provide integrated abrasion resistance with fewer seams and less weight
  • Waterproof, breathable, seam-sealed, ultralight, 2.5-layer shell
  • Engineered yoke and sleeves for abrasion resistance and fewer seams
  • Attached, fully adjustable hood with hidden cord locks
  • Pit-zip venting


  • Exposed molded-tooth center front zip
  • Pack-friendly, semi-concealed, reverse-coil hand pocket zips
  • Velcro® adjustable cuff tabs
  • Hem-cinch cord
  • Active fit

USA kits 2015.

The USA soccer away and alternate kits have been released by nike. I'm not sure how I feel about them yet, but I can at least say that I'm happy they're branching out and trying new things with them. Last year's world cup kits and this year's international kits are far different than they have been in previous years and I dig that. Take a look and tell us what you think.

and the alternate kit:

Now if only we could ditch that terrible U.S. soccer crest for something that looks like an adult would wear it as opposed to a 7 year old.

kendrick lamar - to pimp a butterfly album stream.

king kendrick's new album finally dropped. this year is going to be a crazy year in music. drake kicked it off with if you're reading this it's too late and now kendrick lamar brings us to pimp a butterfly.

if you've listened to "i," "the blacker the berry" or "king kunta" then you already know the vibe that to pimp a butterfly has and the sound kendrick was going for. there are no radio hits or club bangers on this album. lamar speaks his mind and let's us know where his thoughts are at in this album. he focuses on some heavy subjects as themes of race and ethnicity are extremely present in this album.

kendrick doesn't fall short. this album will go down in the books and really shows off lamar's talent for story telling in his songs as well as his talent for delivering strong lyrics. 

sit back and actually listen to this album. you won't be disappointed. link below.

stream it on spotify here.

If you've been a Cult follower for awhile, you know a couple things about me already:


  1. I dig menswear
  2. I'm all about that bargain, 'bout that bargain, no ripoffs


So when our friends at Simply Skinny Ties offered to send us a couple of their pieces to try out, I was pumped. A relatively new company out of Utah, Simply Skinny aims "To provide each of [their] customers with a line of unique, high quality neckties for a simple price." Music to my ears.

There are currently about nine styles to choose from with more on the way. And at a price point of $25, you really can't go wrong. Unless you don't own $25 dollars, in which case you should maybe focus on getting a job before you start collecting ties. Priorities, man.

Each tie measures 2.5 inches at it's widest point, and the current styles are made of either 100% cotton or 100% wool. Generally, I would recommend a silk tie when pairing with a suit for more formal occasions, but you would exect to pay at least 3-4 times as much for a high-quality silk tie, which is not fun. That being said, These ties are manufactured well and they look good, and when coordinated correctly, can work in both casual and formal settings. 

I highly recommend stopping by the Simply Skinny Ties website and picking up a couple ties to add to your collection and really make your style stand out. For $25, it'll be the best tie-based decision you make.
