As of recent I’ve been really into all those hip hop crime dramas from the the late 90s/early 00s that my parents never let me watch. You know State Property, Belly, In too Deep, etc. Apparently all you needed to be a kingpin was an oversized Enyce jersey or a fly ass sweatsuit. Unfortunately I have too much self respect to wear the former. I’ve also been watching a lot of prison reality shows so this outfit is also an homage to the boys in the yard up north. (I don’t know what that means either.) If you’re going for that convict chic look I recommend murdered out boots, a murdered out beanie,  and a murder charge wouldn’t hurt either.


The New Age of Timbs

As someone who grew up on the East Coast, Timberland boots were always a staple piece to pull out for the fall and winter seasons. That being said, I obviously jumped on the opportunity to style their latest collection that mixes ruggedness with refinement. Since the blazer is created with Japanese denim I decided to go in the atypical direction of that style aesthetic.  This blazer-boot combo is one that can be paired with several tee/button down/jean/chino options. I however wanted to show a more fashunz perspective. My favorite piece of this outfit is definitely the boots. A waterproof duck boot that looks more downtown than Duck Dynasty? Perfect.  They’re a departure from the Beef N’ Broccolis that I used to covet back in the day, but I have to say I’m digging the new vibe the brand is embracing.


Closest Thing To A Crop Top

As of recent I’ve noticed the crop top trend creeping up on men’s runways, menswear blogs, and even the clurb. Personally I’m down with anyone wearing whatever they want but you probably won’t see me bare any midriff on this blog because 1) I’m good and 2) Bruce Jenner already had that on lock. While I’m keeping my belly button covered up, I’m down for that raised hemline on a shirt. The cropped cut is incredibly conducive for a drapey layered look and give short dudes like myself a semblance of a torso. Don’t forget to do those crunches right though because no one is trying to see a muffin top when you raise your arms.

Time for daddy to get back down to his vintage roots. Between work and side hustlin’ I haven’t had the adequate time to troll through vintage shops and thrift stores as much as I used to. Fortunately there’s the internet and super kewl places online like BetaMenswear where I got this shirt from. (I ended up butchering the sleeves off btw.) Whether or not you’re feeling the vintage vibez or not, two things you need this season are a denim jacket and  a brown boot. If you’re smart you’ll totally invest in pieces that you can wear time and time again. On the flip side you can totally be like me and own 7ish denim jackets & 5 pairs of brown boots and contemplate where your life went wrong every time you stare at your wardrobe.
