Entries in summer (28)



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.

Midweek Jams.

usually wednesday means the middle of the work week; however, this week is a short one since most of the corporate world rewards us for living in America with a three-day-July 4th weekend. That sounds like a pretty good reason to celebrate. What better way to celebrate than with a solid playlist?

the apollo moc by native.

this has go to be the lightest piece of footwear i've seen that isn't garbage.

weighing in at only 160 grams, the apollo moc is made of a seamless microfiber upper with perforations for better circulation and breathability. 


there are added gum inserts on the sole for grip, and a single lace to make sure it stays on your foot. Although these look similar to the Nike Free OG in style, they fit like a moc and are not going to be ideal for any sort of physical activity. Consider this a casual spring/summer option.

hardie amies sunglasses collection.

check out these fresh sunglasses that hardy amies came out with. I mean, are they insanely expensive for something who's main purpose is just to lessen the amount of light that goes into your eyeballs, preventing you from blindness? Yes. But that doesn't mean we can't use them to find something we like, to then go and find something similar for a fraction of the cost, amirite? I mean let's face it, the man's got good taste.

diy fire pit.

found this awesome diy fire pit project and figured it was the perfect beginning of summer project for the backyard. It uses washing machine drum and looks really unique. buying a pre-made fire pit will cost you $100+ easy, but this setup should be between $10-20 depending on what you already have. Check it out:

You can see the full guide here. Get to work and start your summer off right with a gathering of close friends around a fire pit at night.
