abc's of men's fashion - 62.

french cuff

French cuffs are twice as long as regular cuffs, and then folded back on themselves and closed with cuff links. 

As they are more formal attire, French cuffs should not be worn every day, unless you’re a mob boss or the CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Generally speaking, French cuffs should only be worn with suit jackets. If you’ve got that certain je ne sais qois about you and know how to wear them without overpowering your outfit, then you might be able to pull off French cuffs with a blazer or a sport coat, but in most situations, it’s best to keep them formal and stick to the suit jacket.


the shredded tee.

now that shredded/holey jeans have become common in the fashion world, tees are beginning to follow suit. But, like jeans, shirts with holes in them walk a fine line between fresh and fugly. Too many holes and you look like you're trying too hard. Not enough and they don't even get noticed. Holes too big and you're showing half a nip while you walk around town. 

Generally, I think it's good to folow the 'less is more' principle, but there's more than that to take into consideration. 

I dig the large hole in the back with shirt fabric hanging off. I also like the 'holes congregating in specific areas' approach, as opposed to the 'holes everywhere' option.

As it turns out, it's really hard to find one of these shredded tees that A) don't look terribly overdone, and B) isn't terribly overpriced. Realistically, you're better off taking some scissors to an old shirt that fits well. Just don't turn it into a muscle tee and don't go hole-happy.

Good luck.

reebok is slightly less terrible now.

It's no secret that the only reason Reebok still exists is because they latched onto the crossfit bandwagon before it exploded, and promptly became the sole sponsor of the UFC. They're finally managing to breathe some new life into the brand. 

I'm not saying you should go out any buy stock in the brand, nor am i recommending that you gear up with ufc reebok training gear or any of that noise. 

But these throwback reebok gum sole shoes are dope, so that's something slightly less terrible than the previous 10 years of reebok.

You can grab them at Champs or, like, any major reebok dealer probly.

alpha industries.

I love how versatile flight jackets are becoming. the bomber/flight jacket trend is still strong which means designers are finding new ways to wear them. 

check out these variations from the one and only alpha industries.


You can pick one up directly from alpha industries for around $150. Or you can get lucky and go the ebay route.

adidas - busenitz.

buy me these for christmas, mmkay thanks.


Nice take on a classic in a killer color. 

If you could just ship them to me before christmas, that'd be grrrrrreat.

chain gang.

fashion is cyclical, this is a well-documented fact. So try not to be surprised when I tell you that chain wallets are a thing again, and you don't have to be a biker to wear them.

Oh you don't believe me? See for yourself:



Not only do you not have to be a biker to rock the chain, but the chain doesn't even have to be a real "chain" anymore -- you can sport a leather version if you're feeling it.


Now you can be both fashionable and economically responsible in a big city. Enjoy your trip down memory lane.

me and your mama

Check the opening track to Childish Gambino's newest album [Awaken, My Love!].

It's called 'Me and Your mama', and it's breaking into a whole new world of soul and vibes.


The album will be available December 2nd, and if this is any indication, it promises to be wirth the money.

gap shearling.

The Gap friends and family weekend just ended, but not before i scooped up this killer shearling denim jacket.

The jacket is still available, and gap is always having deals, so it's not too late to find one for yourself for fall.

bmw motorrad vision next 100.

BMW has created the motorcycle of the future. Like, if you took the bikes from TRON and removed all the flourescent lighting, this is what you'd be left with.

Along with the bike come a riding suit and a specially designed goggle/visor system that syncs with the bike to display relevant riding information as well as warnings and computer intelligence.

I'm not sure how big of a hit the suit is going to be, but the bike and the technology behind it are pretty cool.

Nike x acronym.

let me introduce you to nike's latest collaboration with acronym - the air presto mid collection.


As per usual, they're near impossible to find. They retail for around $200, but the only place you're likely to find them is on eBay for around $400+. Good luck with that.
