necking.

one of the summer's trends in the world of men's fashion is the nerckerchief. I've always been a big supporter of the back pocket square/bandana as it's a timeless, functional, and simple option. But the neckerchief requires a bit more caution and care to execute. 

While still timeless and classic, rocking a neckerchief is not as simple as throwing a bandana in your back pocket. What you don't want to do is look like a lame cowboy (unless you're lame and a cowboy), or a wannabe fake billionaire who sports ascots (unless you're a wannabe or a fake, or a billionaire).

Bandana selection is crucial in avoiding embarrassment--go simple and classic in color and pattern. Neckerchief knot selection also plays a big part in this since you most likely don't want to look like a 12 year-old boy scout (unless you're 12 or a boy scout).


When in doubt, just don't even try it. The neckerchief is definitely an accessory for someone confident they can pull it off. But when it's done well, it's killer (see pretty much any picture taken for the brooklyn circus guys over the past year).

good luck.

rodney mullen.

A friend of mine is convinced that skateboard style is going to come back into the fashion spotlight in the very near future. I sincerely hope that doesn't include Volcom cargo shorts and puffy dvs sk8er shoes.

However, given that there are a few solid brands that are taking part of the skate community like Brixton, nike, and adidas, there may be hope.  

In honor of this hope, here's a rad new video of rodney mullen.

levi's x google.

Levi's has teamed up with google to create the world's first commuter smart jacket, and they're calling it Project Jacquard. I guess it's actually just the world's first smart jacket, period. 

At first glance, it has the same cut and appearance as previous Levi's commuter jackets, however, in this case, it's what's on the inside that counts. 

conductive threads have been woven into the denim to turn specific locations on the fabric into interactive sensors that comunicate with the corresponding Levi's commuter app. 

In conjunction with a pair of headphones, the application, shows the ability to give directions, list neaby points of interest, answer or reject phone calls, and control the music app all without having to look at your phone. 

Whether or not you like the jacket, this is a huge innovation and really opens the door to possibility.

cheaper than walmart and not nearly as ugly.

If you haven't heard of Primark yet, your mind is about to be semi-blown. Like, not a huge blowing of the mind, but enough to make you say 'oh dang, that's not terrible', which is still a solid level of mind-blowage.

I found primark when I lived in London, and it sorta blew my mind (see above description for the exact amount my mind was blown). Picture a retail clothing store with european fashions at lower prices than walmart that don't look horrible. Kind of like an H&M, but cheaper, and the styles are legit european and not just americanized versions of european styles. 

 

I'm not saying these items are going to be the highest quality you've ever owned, but for under $20, it's a good place to grab something you know won't be trending forever.

Like seriously? $1.50 for a pair of sunglasses? you shut your mouth right now! for $1.50, those glasses could last me 3 hours and I'd still feel like i got my money's worth.

There are currently only a few stores in the U.S., most of which are on the east coast, but stop by their website and scoop up some super-cheap threads.

yellow claw bfm united kit.

i don't care if you like yellow claw or their music, but the new yellow claw bfm united uniform is rad as hell. it's one kit to definitely own.

one thing you can never say about yellow claw is they suck at merch. these guys are 100% on top of it when it comes to apparel and yellow claw goods. so when they drop a dope football kit inspired collection it's going to sell out fast, oh, and it did. i think there might be like a size small or something that won't fit you still available, but good luck. i'm mainly just showing you this so you can see what you missed out on or what you can buy at absurd resell prices.

head over to their online shop to check out more yellow claw goods

normcore.

normcore - "A fashion movement, c. 2014, in which scruffy young urbanites swear off the tired street-style clichés of the last decade — skinny jeans, wallet chains, flannel shirts — in favor of a less-ironic (but still pretty ironic) embrace of bland, suburban anti-fashion attire. (See Jeans, mom. Sneakers, white.)"

"Normcore is safe. Normcore is same-y. The normcore look is a knowing piss-take of the heterosexual male’s desperate desire to be sartorially unremarkable. Normcore is not brave or butch or swagger-y. Normcore is about dressing like a mild-mannered mental patient or a bewildered Icelandic exchange student circa 1984."

This is the worst. Don't fall for it. This isn't fashion, it's just lazy. 

Don't.

Just don't.

Seriously.

Swoop fast if you're going to swoop, because sizes run out pretty quickly.

abc's of men's fashion 60.

bespoke.

Bespoke is an adjective for anything commissioned to a particular specification. It may be altered or tailored to the customs, tastes, or usage of an individual purchaser.

A bespoke suit is custom-made, instead of customized from an existing pattern. An individual pattern is cut based on the client’s specific measurements and sewn by hand using fabric that is also hand-selected by the client and fitted to his body. There was a time when all men’s suits were bespoke and men would visit their tailor to be measured, be advised on fabric, style, dressing left or right. The tailor knew all his clients and used to keep patterns for future visits. The world of bespoke creates an intimate relationship between tailor and client. It takes 6 to 8 weeks for the suit to be ready.

fuggit - lounge in style.

gone are the days where your home slippers were required to ugly and childish. No longer must you warm your feet with furry dinosaurs that roar with each step, or with moccasins that are only reaching low-medium comfort levels. Uggs? No thanks! Crocs? GTFO!

Feast your eyes on the fuggit air mags:


Finally, someone found a good reason to crochet without being compared to an elderly woman surrounded by cats and grandchildren. 

These things are handmade by one man, with the goal of "ending sneaker violence". What is sneaker violence, you say? No, it is not the name given to turf wars between different gangs of sneakers, but the acts of senseless violence to obtain coveted sneakers from someone else. Fuggit's plan is to "make the shoes, sell them, and take proceeds from that and buy sneakers to give away. No gimmicks, no raffles, no nothing." The aim for Fuggit is to defuse some of the coveted and limited status of popular designs that are clearly linked to the violent crimes.

Stop by Fuggit's website and pick up a pair of knit kicks. Not feeling the air mags? No worries, Fuggit also produces lines of Jordans, Yeezys, and other designs.
