The word luxury gets thrown around a lot nowadays. Even more than that, “afforadable luxury” is a huge market and unfortunately very few brands can deliver on that promise.
In the spirit connecting new labels to the masses, I want to introduce PASKHO to you guys. Patrick Robinson (AKA the guy who made GAP cool) is cooking up a with a new label and wants your help to launch it.
Through a Kickstarter campaign, Robinson is starting a new movement and creating a simpler, athletic, and stylish aesthetic that will be available for everyone. As far as menswear, look forward to interesting fabrics, sporty cuts, and tailored silhouettes.

After nor’easters, blizzrads, and records wind chills, I’m dreaming of warmer times to come. Thanks to the team behind Frank & Oak, I get to contiute to dream that dream through their latest capsule collection. Escondido is the type of collection is the type of collection that makes you want to drop everything, buy a new skateboard, and cruise into the sun. Inspired by California dreamin’, the capsule collection feautures 12 esstential West Coast pieces as well as limited edition skate decks.
Check out more images (and a video!) of the collection that drops tommorow below.
Let me know what you think about the collection in the comment section.
Next week starts the marks the beginning of the men’s shows in Europe. I’ll be covering the shows via my “other job” (remotely of course) starting January 7th with London. I’ve been recorded as not giving British labels their fair props but the creation of London Collections: Men might make me change my tune.
Check out the vid above for a teaser of the talent that’ll be displaying. I also won’t judge if you try to recreate any of the look, I know I am.
If you check the tag on the shirt you’re wearing right now it’ll probably say it was made somewhere overseas. That right there, my friends, is a problem. Not to get all preachy but it’s time to support American designers that actually make their clothes in America.
Young&United is a new label that needs your help so they can do just that. By contributing to their Kickstarter, you’ll be supporting young artists and domestic production. Both, I’m pretty sure, are what the “American dream” is made of.
Last month me and my best friend Corey got to take a dance class taught by SYTYCD alum Travis Wallto promote his new show, All The Right Moves. Full disclosure: I’ve always been a huge theatre geek and couldn’t wait to get back into the dancing arena.
From the vid above you can tell it was a pretty awesome time. (And yes, I kept that hat on the whole time just for the look.)
BONUS: A clip of me in a 2008 community theatre performance of The Wiz. Feel free to poke fun.
