What is that I feel? Ah yes, the joyous reality the leather weather has arrived. The latest edition to my closet is this moto jacket from Forever 21. What I love about it is that’s: it’s light enough to wear all day, comes at a super affordable price point, and is a good contrast the mass black jackets you’ll see this season. Speaking of color, forget Red October, it’s all about Sepia September and embracing brown hues for fall. As someone who wears a ton of black and white, it’s definitely the next step in neutrals.

[Ed note: I'm VERY aware this look is reminiscent of Indiana Jones.]

Things I did this weekend: Went to Full Moon Fest, drank way too many frozen beverages, and binged watched Wet Hot American Summer. Because I’m the worst,  I ran down to the thrift store mid marathon to find a shirt that properly paid homage. Since we’re one the last leg of summer it’s the perfect time to remember to take it easy. Fun fact: spending 5 bucks on a shirt is great because you won’t feel bad getting ice cream and rum all over yourself by the time you get home.

*Ed note: Netflix did not sponsor this post, but I’m sure they could afford to.*

Vacationing For The Gram

Just by looking at Instagram it seems like everyone is going everywhere this summer. Personally, the farthest I’ve been out of the city was a trippy journey to the woods of the Catskills. (That’s a story I will not tell unless I’m 3 tequila-sodas deep.) Whether you’re being fiscally responsible or living the broke boy life, there’s no reason  for you not to pop off some fire grams while staying local. (Don’t let all the kids with deep-pocketed parents and sponsors have all the fun.) A couple things you can do to feel like you’re traveling: 1) Venture out and do some local day trips that inexpensive, but you’ve never put real thought into. 2) Wear all those floral shirts before the fall hits. 3) Only drink pina coladas from now until Labor Day. (Actually don’t do that)

No New Neutrals

This time of the year is peak for prints, patterns, and pops of color. No matter the season, it’s important to still have a grasp of your neutrals. While it might be cool to wear black 365 in major metropolitan cities, the black and gray scheme doesn’t have to be the minimalists go to. Check out the other end of the spectrum and try off-whites and work your way to browns. These are typically easier to find in light fabrics so you don’t have to melt while doing your stunts and shows. This happens to also be one of my favorite tee shirts because it’s linen and has a good shape. Speaking of which, cut and silhouette are crazy important in lighter clothes because they don’t fit everyone one the same way. (Take it from the guy who can’t find a long line shirt to fit a short torso’d frame to save his life.)
