I really appreciate raingear making a comeback in #menswear. While you may be shaking your head at your screen, remind yourself that the Cool Teens on the L train (who you’re afraid of) were not wearing anoraks two years ago. I always recommend making a statement with your outerwear and today is no different. Sure you can own a dark raincoat when it actually pours, but pull out a colored or printed jacket to flex. I decided to pair this baby blue joint from Stutterheim with a buisness casual/holiday party look since it is tis the season. (lol I don’t really know what business casual is.) Since you’re still reading (hopefully) I also highly suggest opting for the oversized knits this season to keep you warm while also accunating that you’re getting thicc for winter.

It’s that time of year again to officially start switching up your closet. (Bless your heart if you a space big enough to keep all of your stuff in one place all year round.) Before bringing back all my winter gear, I decided to go through it all to either keep, donate, or edit. I’ve made note of this before, but if you’re on a budget (turn up for fiscal responsibility!) then altering your clothes is much easier than going out and getting new stuff. That being said, I grabbed a pair of scissors and started cropping some sweaters. Drawing inspiration from Yeezy Season, I wanted to go for that unfinished look. I can’t tell you exactly where to cut because it depends on your body type and how bold you want to be. I can tell you ,however, that these look great with longer shirts underneath. Since I’m on the shorter side, I get the illusion of having a torso for once. It may not be for everybody, but might as well try to rock the crop at least once.

Mens Fall Essentials

Fall is in full swing and it’s time to dress appropriately. When you live in a place like NYC it could be freezing in the morning on your ways to work/school, uncomfortable in the afternoon, and brick again by the time you’re out for the night. While it sounds like a mission to dress for all this and be stylish, it’s not that hard if you’re strategic about it. Check out some of my favorite pieces below that should help you find the perfect Autumn balance.

Goorin & Bros Butcher Hat - If you can pull off hats (sorry if you can’t brah) then this is the shape for you. I currently have this in Olive which I love, but I recommend going with a shade of brown if you’re only copping one investment headpiece this season.

Warby Parker Otis Glasses-  Summer was all about the clear frames, and the wind chill clearly proves that summer is over. If you need to wear specs I’d go for something in a subtle tortoise. (If you’re feeling brave why not add a red to the roster.)

Timberland West Haven Chukka Boot - I can’t stress the importance of a good boot this season. While I love my classic Timbs, this modern silhouette can take you from the street to the conference room with ease.

Coach Manhattan Backpack- When it comes to bags, nothing is easier than a backpack. If you’re out of school you should probably invest in something nicer nowadays. Treat yo’self!

J.Crew Denim Jacket- While I do love “leather weather” it’s pretty hard to compete with the rich heritage of the denim jacket. If you’re going for a trad or Americana aesthetic one of these is your best bet.

Carhartt Polka Stripe - I always like to keep a statement shirt on deck just to flex a little here and there. Ditch the florals and Hawaiian prints and go for something a little more subtle. Or don’t….stripes, polka dots, panels, mixed media are all cool ways to stand out.

French Connection Machine Gun Slim Trousers- It kills me to see guys think their only option between dress pants and sweatpants are jeans. While denim is hella universal, a well-fitted trouser speaks volumes. (They also won’t bleed indigo all over your white kicks.)

Miansai Modern Anchor –  Next time you tell someone to “look at the wrist” make sure you have a little something nice on it.

Blacked Out Birthday List

August 27, 2015

Birthday Wishlist

With my birthday on the horizon I’m taking time to see how #blessed I am to be surrounded with such an amazing support group while working in an industry I enjoy and living in a city that I love. Because I’m the worst, I’m also reflecting on all the stuff I need in my life. Check out the list of items I’m currently lusting after below and feel free to have them to my office. (No bow required!)

The Arrivals Leather Jacket  - No fall wardrobe is complete without a clean biker jacket and I surprisingly don’t have one. I actually tried this on once and it took all my self-control not to run out of the showroom with it. If you don’t get it for me you might as well get it for yourself.

Coach Manhattan Backpack -  If I’m forced to carry around my laptop and gear every day, I might has well do it luxuriously.

Traktor Kontrol S4 - Your boy is stepping up his DJ game this year. I’ll probably buy this myself, but you should book me for your next event!

Native Union Marble Phone Case - How good would this look on the gram, doe?

Prada Lace-Up - “So if the devil wear Prada, Adam Eve wear nada / I’m in between but way more fresher” – da gawd Kanye West

Common Projects Achilles Retro High - I’m a bird, so what?

Warby Parker Henning - Admittingly I have 3 glasses in rotation, but none of them are matte black. (DM me for Rx details.)

APC Logo Sweatshirt – Sure you can get a sweatshirt for like $5, but it’s more fun letting people know you threw down two Benjamins for a basic item.

And there you have it folks, this year’s spoiled brat birthday list. Ed note: I didn’t plan for everything to be black/white, but here we are.
