Thanksgiving is over my man. It’s time to stop putting off going holiday shopping. Every single blog, website, magazine is probably throwing like a million different gift ideas your way (This site will be guilty as well) and your head is spinning like a top. Forget running around and doing the most when you can just do the deed without every leaving the comfort of your laptop.
A package from Birchbox Man is the perfect gift this year that shows you care without putting in much effort on your part. If you’ve never heard, Birchbox is a platform that sends out a box every month featuring the latest and greatest products to up your grooming and lifestyle game.
For the ladies the boxes feature things to keep your cutie pie beatified, and the fellas receive tools that keep that mug street style ready. It’s the gift that keep on giving and you’ll be stuntin’ on everyone one else when those boxes keep coming for 3, 6, or 12 more month. Head on down to the Birchbox Holiday Shop to see what I’m talking about.
If you’re anything like me then the season of giving is an excuse to write off some purchases for myself. You’ve had a tough year. You deserve it. Join the wave.
I’m in the minority of people who don’t watch American Horror Story. I don’t watch Scandal either so whatever. Basically I’m watching an ad for it the other day and I’m like these witches looked like they stepped out of a Saint Laurent campaign. Can’t be mad at that. If I could throw hexes on people I’d be dressed head to toe in Public School myself. May not have the power but I still get dressed in all black like The Omen. (Had to pull out that Lil Kim line.)
I’m getting ready to head home for the long weekend. Being around the fam and in the suburbs means being on my p’s and q’s, which makes me think of my less than great life choices. OD snapchats, staying out late, wearing jackets like this in below 40 degree weather, you get the picture. When Biggie said that “Bad Boys move in silence” he meant in a blacked out outfit and Margiela inspired shoes, right? Well that’s what I got from it. I’ve been digging wearing strictly black and white look for a while. It’s hard to mess up and you’ll look good even if you wear the same outfit 3 days (or nights) straight. (Not that I would know.)
P.S. The fact that I have a Drake song as a blog title shows that I’m trippin’.

When most people rock the military look, they fail to realize that the style comes from an actual heritage. I’ve spent the last the last couple of months emerged in all things U.S Army & military related for work so I’m pretty invested. You might not know that most innovations in clothing, especially menswear, was driven to improve uniforms for the armed forces. You might not have been able to enjoy your luxe drapey tees today if t-shirts weren’t invented as undergarments during World War I. Look at that, you gotta a little history and some style. Maybe the next time you step out in Army inspired garb you’ll take a sec to get into the rich history.
