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.

    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.

    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.

    usmnt kits '16.

    the US men's national soccer team has released the kits they'll be wearing in the copa das americas this summer. They've FINALLY redesigned that gooft AYSO-looking crest and stepped it up on both the home and away kits. Even though, since the gams are being held in the US this year, technically every game is a home game.

    warby parker spring '16.

    warby parker was a game changer with it's 'home try-on' approach to shopping for prescription frames, but the reason we still like them is because they're frames are always on point and affordable. 

    most of their frames start around a hundred bucks, and with the option to pick 5 pairs to try on in your own home, you really can't go wrong.

    Check out their newest spring line:

    The Kensett - $95

    The Preston - $95

    The Haskell - $145

    The Kensett - $95

    The Burroughs - $95

     

    There are dozens of other styles available on their website. If you're in the market to freshen up the look of your facial region, this is the way to do it.

    j.crew fall '16.

    j.crew released a handful of it's looks for fall '16 at fashion week. these blends of throwback styles and modern day fits are pretty killer. The ideas are fresh and relevant without being too trendy. This line is looking like the collection that brings j.crew back into popularity for men's fashion.

    While you can't purchase these pieces yet, they should be launching in August, which gives you plenty of time to start planning your attack.

    Nike + SB50.

    as one of the main sponsors of Super Bowl 50, Nike decided that the color scheme this year should be black/white/grey/gold. Well played, nike, well played. I absolutely love these color combinations, and some of this gear is fresh to death. 

    Now if only I were sponsored by Nike and could get this stuff for free...

    chelsea '15/16.

    This year Chelsea signed a huge deal with Yokohama as their new official sponsor -- say goodbye samsung. 

    I'm gonna be honest, i kind of hate the "Yokohama Tyres" logo in comparison with the cleaner samsung text, but so far I'm not mad at these new henley-collar kits. take a look.

    adidas originals s/s 2016.

    one word: whoa. adidas is stepping it up to another level. nike better watch their back because adidas is coming hard this next year. they've given us a preview of the heat they're bringing with their spring/summer 2016 line and other shoe brands must be pissed. the influence from yohji's line is heavy in this collection, but what do you expect when your brand employees one of the best sneaker designers in the game? this line is going to smash it and it looks like adidas is not stopping anytime soon. check out some of these firing trainers below.
