Every so often I’m contacted for an opportunity that I simply cannot pass up. This happened to me recently when the fine people from Chookhare & Sons reached out offering.
Whether you’re ready for it or not (not sure how you couldn’t be ready for it), spring is almost here! That means three things. No more adding whipped cream to.
Every so often, something happens that we never would’ve expected. Concepts are introduced that seem kind of crazy, but once you sit with them for a bit you understand their.
Disclosure: this post is sponsored by Jewelers Mutual Insurance Group, but as always, if I didn’t love it I wouldn’t be sharing it. I’ll start this post off with complete.
I recently got my hands on some denim from Jeansda, a Japanese denim company and I’m really excited to talk to you guys about my experience today. It’s something I’d been wanting to.
One of my favorite things about my job is that I get guys coming up to me digitally or in person and discussing style with me. Sometimes it’s asking for.
Fall season is one of my most exciting times of year for fashion. That’s because it’s cool enough to wear jackets, but not so cold that you need a giant.
Good day! It’s something I’ve been wanting to address for quite awhile now, and that’s my process for picking an outfit. I often get asked by people where to begin.
Yep. It’s time to talk about your work clothes, dudes. Now I’m not too sure whether there have been any scientific studies done on this – and if there haven’t,.
During fall, shoe choice becomes more important than the rest of the year. It might be hot, but then what if it rains? Maybe it’s cold, and suddenly starts to.
Whoa whoa whoa…stop that. I see you shifting into fall fashion mode and going to put away your summer pieces. Pump the brakes for a second and let me explain.
Since moving to LA eight years ago I have immersed myself in the California lifestyle in many ways. I’ve “drank the kool-aid” as they say. Shit, I’ve probably chugged the.
One of my favorite summer trends over the last couple of years are bold button up shirts. There’s something wrong with that statement, though. Even I termed them as a.
There comes a point when fall is transitioning into our lives when we get sick of wearing tees and lightweight fabrics. Sometimes it’s nice to feel something a bit heavier.
I’m not sure about you but I find shoe choices during the summer and early fall to be a bit frustrating. I’m not always in the mood for sneakers, I.
If you’re reading this while sitting on top of a wallet that’s three inches thick, filled with receipts from the early 2000’s, then you’ve come to the perfect place. The.
Happy Friday everybody!! I wanted to share an outfit idea with you, as I like to do from time to time. A lot of us are burned out from a.
This post is in partnership with Scarci Resort Wear, but if I didn’t love it, I wouldn’t be sharing it with you! Summmertiiimmmeeee and the linen is breezy! Whoa, that.
A lot of us have certain things that just seem to stick in our brains. Whether it be a new toy, a piece of tech, a watch, a certain pair.
Why hello! It’s summertime and for me that means accessories. With summer fashion being mainly pretty basic, I like to spice things up with fun surrounding pieces. One of THE.
Wearing jeans in the summer can be annoying. It’s no fun to get too sweaty, the way they fit has to be just right because too skinny isn’t comfortable and.
Today I’m expressing my right to be basic. One of the most common issues I come across when I’m teaching guys about style is their lack of knowledge on where.
You can still look good without overdoing it with American Flags. Happy 4th of July! Hopefully you have some fun plans for today with friends and family. Whether it’s a.
Heyoooo! We all made it through another week of work, school (well, summer school), retirement, or whatever! Cheers to us! I partnered with Rodd & Gunn, an awesome brand from.
I recently scored this (saweeeeeet) embroidered denim jacket from BooHooMan and personally, I’m loving it. I wanted to put out the feelers to see if you guys were also into it.
One of, if not THE most essential accessory during the summertime are sunglasses. They protect your eyes, they keep you from getting headaches from squinting too much, and if you.
Cheers! You made it through another grueling week of work. Now it’s Friday and you’re chomping at the bit to get your weekend started, right?? Well, as usual, I like.
If you don’t already know, I’m obsessed with white sneakers. I grew up loving them and nothing has changed…well it used to be Air Force Ones. They’re one of the.
Cheeeeers to the freakin weekend! Happy Friday everyone. I hope you’ve had a wonderful and productive week. Things have been good on my end. We’re continuing to work on our.
Judging from my own personal experience, summer wedding season is coming. Jaclyn and I are going to at least two, potentially three weddings this year and I’m sure a lot.
Regardless of the current weather report in your neck of the woods, summer is coming! It’s like Jaws, except way less scary…and with less teeth. Come to think of it,.
It’s freakin’ Friday!!! Hope everyone has had an excellent and productive week. I know I have. We’re finally settling into our new condo and it’s been so much fun putting.
If I get nothing else across to you in all of my posts here, let the one thing be classic versatility. Quality pieces that are made well, fit great and.
One of the most fun things that happens to me is when I’m wearing an outfit and someone comes up to me, interesting in a specific piece I’m wearing and.
Let’s face it, people! $100 doesn’t get you what it used to. These days, high fashion is so on trend that $100 would barely pay for a sleeve of the.
I got some new glasses! As someone with absolutely awful eyesight, glasses are an essential part of my life. I can’t see two feet in front of me without some.
It’s the most wonderful tiiimmmeeee of the year!!! Sure, holiday season is cool and all, but when the temperatures first start to rise back into the 70s is my favorite.
Valentine’s Day is on Tuesday! If you didn’t know that you’re either single or WAY behind. I know a lot of people consider V-Day a “Hallmark” Holiday that was made.
One of the hardest lessons for me to learn in fashion was the idea of quality over quantity. Basically put, it means that spending extra money on something that’s made.
Five years ago, if you would’ve asked me if I’d ever wear a turtleneck again I probably would’ve laughed in your face. I wore a ton of them as a.
Although it seems the rainy weather we’ve been having in LA is FINALLY over, it’s still fresh on my mind. I know I’m a spoiled brat when it comes to.
Oh yeah, it’s denim on denim time. For understandable reasons, it can be an oddly intimidating outfit for a lot of guys. A lot of different types of dude have.
I’m a huge fan of sweatpants. They’re cozy, they’re warm and thanks to the explosion of Athleisure, tons of brands are making them with higher quality fabrics in slimmer designs..
So if you don’t follow my social media (you’re missing out), you wouldn’t know that I just got back from a trip home to Cincinnati for New Years! Jaclyn and.
“OMGGGGG!!! Alert the authorities!! It’s raining in LA!!!” – everyone in LA If you don’t already know this, people freak the F*CK out when it rains here. Considering it’s only.
It’s a beautiful thing when you can feel good about buying yourself something, isn’t it? More and more companies are adopting the Toms Shoes model and donating a percentage of.
Oh my goooodnessssssss!! I’ve done my first styling video to accompany my posts. Gonna try to start doing more video/vlog style stuff, so please CLICK HERE to check it out!.
Weirdly, one of the most confusing directions we can be given in fashion is the idea of “business casual”. Sometimes it means button up and chinos, sometimes it means jeans.
If you’re delving into fashion in a serious way for the first time or if you’re simply trying to expand on your current closet, starting with the basics is essential..
Quite often I get approached by someone either in my personal life or online who wants to have better style but is struggling with where to start. It’s an understandable.
The holidays are a beautiful time of year, no doubt. They’re also insanely stressful. The traveling alone is enough to give me nightmares. We always travel during the holidays.
It’s hard to believe that tomorrow is already Thanksgiving, but the facts speak for themselves. It’s time we all gather around the table, eat till we hate ourselves and then.
Hooray!! Congratualtions!!! You’re one of the lucky people who have the opportunity to visit the beach this time of year. It’s honestly the best guys. There’s way less traffic, parking.
In the midst of the craziness that’s happening in our country right now, I want to take a minute to try and be productive in teaching a new lesson. In.
The election is over!! Let’s all celebrate by treating ourselves to something nice. Here’s this week’s haul. Mostly clothes with a couple of housewares thrown in. Also a book that.
For as long as I can remember (ok fine, like a year), I’ve been in search of a luxury weekender bag. Considering I’m shooting, quickly traveling, and just generally out of.
Although I try to pride myself on being able to wear a versatile range of clothes, it’s no secret that I’m much more naturally adept at casual. Standing out while.
It’s about that time! Get it? Hilarious jokes aside, let’s take a minute to discuss the wide world of watches. It’s pretty easy to get your hands on a great.
Enough already!!!!! This happens every year. I throughly enjoy myself during the summer months, taking full advantage of wearing shorts and t-shirts as often as possible. Then “fall” comes and all.
It’s that time again! Some fashion, accessories and art this week! It’s only Tuesday, so there’s plenty of time to get shopping for your weekend. Also, it’s never too early to.
I’m not sure about you but shit has started to get a little crowded over here in my neck of the woods. When I say crowded, I mean in the.
Yep, I did it. I’m wearing white pants after Labor Day. Come at me, fashion police! As I’ve said before, I certainly agree with the term that fashion rules are.
Heyo! Considering a lot of my day consists of roaming around the internet and stumbling onto things that I love, I figured it would be smart to start compiling some.
I’ll be honest, without fit, fashion is bullshit. The clothes you put on represent you and if you’re completely unaware of how they should fit, it’s not surprising that you.
Way to go! You overslept and now you’re supposed to be somewhere. We’ve all done it, right? It’s one of life’s many inevitabilities, you just have to hope that you.
Fall weather means a few things, one of them, and probably my favorite is jacket weather! Ever since I was old enough to be aware, I’ve been jacket obsessed. Something.
Why hellooooooo!!! Welcome to my brand new segment, Fashion 101, where I’ll be discussing things that every guy needs to know when it comes to fashion knowledge. Having a solid.
Heyoooo! Happy Friday guys, I hope everyone has some fun plans this weekend. Regardless of what you’ve got going on, I want to talk a little bit about building out.
It’s Saturday!!! Hopefully that means you have some fun plans with friends or your significant other. Personally, when I’m going out on a Saturday I like to make it a.
For the longest time I stayed away from shirts and ties because they felt, well, boring. A plain ass suit with a plain ass shirt and a plain ass tie?.
The seasons are changing, which for any self respecting manly man means one thing…SHOPPING!!!!!! As the mercury dips lower and lower, you’ll want to bust out some heavier clothes, obviously..
One of the many reasons I love doing this blog is so that I can always make my opinions expressly known. I’m a natural born debater and having a forum.
I’m so excited about it starting to become fall! No more sweating through all of my clothes, no more dreading having to go anywhere because of it being so damn.
In case you missed it on IG, your boy just turned 30! It’s totally weird to say it out loud now that it’s official, but honestly it’s been more motivational.
If you’re a living, breathing man under the age of 50 and you don’t own at least one plaid shirt, I’m pretty sure I know what you need to be.
Phelps has already won gold, which means the Olympics are in full swing. It’s a pretty exciting time in the USA, with flags and banners hanging from all sorts of.
Isn’t blue awesome? I mean that as abstractly as possible. The color is one of, if not the most common in the spectrum. Our world is covered in it, and.
Just like most of you, I get the majority of my fashion inspiration from magazines, the internet, runway shows and other people on the street. Every so often, however, I.
At this point, summer is in full swing. It’s starting to get hotter and hotter so the amount of clothes being worn is dwindling. Summer, as I’ve stated before, can.
There comes a time in every man’s life when he must make a statement. For a lot of us, it happens around the age of…well, forget that, it’ll happen when.
Easily one of my favorite things about summer is the ability to bust out a lot of fun accessories. One of the best (and most important) pieces in my wardrobe.
‘Tis the season! If you haven’t already been attending weddings this spring, you surely will begin to very soon as the summer officially begins. I just got back from a.
Whoops! Your boy’s been slacking on writing blog posts. Not to fear. I’m back and will be pushing hard to get at least two up per week from here on.
Summer is coming! That means that it’s time to stow away your bulky jackets and bust out your favorite tees. It’s an exciting time of year for me because by this point I’m totally ready to wear tees and jeans on a daily basis, although in three month I’ll be begging Mother Nature to let me put on a damned jacket…
Spring is a fun time for fashion. The weather is still fluctuating enough that you can wear a bunch of different types of pieces. One thing that I ALWAYS love.
Mondays, am I right?! For the majority of my adult life, I’ve struggled with Mondays. Even though I don’t necessarily work a traditional job with traditional hours, I do my best to get my work done during the day time so that I can relax and be a normal person in the evenings. Monday mornings and afternoons…
If you’re a loser like me who isn’t going to Coachella this weekend, then I’ve got just what you need: Athleisure! If you haven’t heard the term, athleisure is a style of clothing that is suitable for working out or daily life. It’s well made, fitted and extremely comfortable. So many people were finding themselves…
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! NBA Playoffs are set to begin on Saturday and I am PUMPED! The way most guys get about March Madness is how.
As I’ve said before, one of my favorite things about fashion is that classics stay classic. Purchasing a piece that’s been in style since its creation is tough to beat. This classic M-65 Field Coat from Alpha Industries is the perfect example. It’s a technically designed military style coat that’s built for actual wear and tear. Stylistically it’s great because of it’s versatility, which is mainly what I want to focus on today…
Fashion is great. It’s a direct representation of yourself, guys. You can be whoever you want to be by dressing with intention. Today I want to talk about embracing your inner grown-man. I’m the type of person who can seem…
So I want to start structuring these posts with a personal story and/or a lesson about how I became who I am stylistically. I’m finding that a lot of guys.
I’m continually amazed by the massive amounts of brands there are out there. The explosion of the Americana movement with quality materials made right here in the USA has forced brands to step their game up and produce at the highest level. A little bit of healthy competition is leading to some of the best constructed menswear that’s ever existed…
As the weather changes back to spring and summer again, I find myself leaning back towards a different style of shoe. Thankfully boots are an all-year thing but it’s definitely nice to have other options for the warmer months of the year…
I’m not, by any means, a super masculine guy. The extent of my knowledge about cars is how to change a tire. That being said, I find that as I grow older, I tend to feel most comfortable in a more masculine style of clothing. I love the feel of a quality pair of denim and a well made pair of boots…
One of my favorite things about fashion is that certain pieces never go out of style. A well-fitted black suit, a nice pair of brown brogues and a leather bomber.
The dress shirt is one of the oldest and most widely produced pieces in the history of menswear. They’ve been worn by Kings, Presidents, Blues Brothers and many more. Having gone to private school throughout the majority of my youth, I became very familiar with dress shirts from a very young age. Itchy fabrics, tight and loose…
As I continue to dive deeper into the world of menswear, I’ve started to experience the higher end of the spectrum. I’ve been afforded pieces and brands that would’ve normally always been out of my price range, which is great. I’ve learned a lot about quality over quantity. I definitely subscribe to that policy more so now…
Denim on denim aka the “Canadian Tuxedo” is a move that I personally encourage on a very regular basis. It’s suitable for most all activities and gives the right amount of attitude to an otherwise simple outfit. This look can however easily drift into farmhand territory if you don’t know what you’re doing. I know great fashion is about disregarding rules, but here are mine anyways…
