exploring what it means to be the modern man.

I’ve been caught up with so much work and travels that fashion week has snuck up on me. Thankfully I have this weekend to prep for the whirlwind of it all. That, and shopping for the newest collections, as well as the best holiday sales.

I pulled my favorite sneakers of the moment, all from East Dane. Shop Men’s sneakers, and their 50% off mens sale.


I’ve partnered with East Dane to offer up a chance for you to win a $50 gift code to update your own wardrobe! Leave a comment on your favorite piece on ED for a chance to win. Good luck.

summer travels.

Posted on August 29th, 2014

Summer is coming to an end, and looking back, it was one of the most memorable (and busiest!) of them all. From a month in Japan and Korea, to frequent weekend jaunts out to East Hampton, to day hikes in upstate New York, to quick stops to Vegas and Los Angeles, to intense wedding planning for #VASONWEDDING, to surf camp with Hurley, and a work trip to Bali – it’s been a wild ride. But this summer wasn’t all fun and games. ‘the modman‘ is finally its own LLC for digital, social, creative and integrated brand marketing, and I added several companies to the list of clients, including DETAILS, John Hardy, TUMI, Trina Turk and Lucchese.

Things were fairly quiet on the blog, but that just means I was extra active on Instagram and Twitter – both so easy to update while on the move. Here are some of my favorite summer moments. I’m back now, and gearing up for an even busier fall (if that’s even possible). Stay tuned for more..

Michael Kors really captures the essence of the modern man: classic, fresh and always on the go [while stylish]. #Jetset really personifies everything Michael as a designer and brand is all about. I completely buy into the idea of the brand, especially during the summer. I mean, who doesnt want to get off a seaplane and onto a private dock?

“When the weather starts to get warm, I think all of us, our thoughts and our attitudes turn to something that’s a little bit softer and a little bit more romantic. I wanted to play with that idea of a sunkissed, relaxed romantic moment.” -MK

#Manhattanhenge is upon New York City. It really is a magical feeling, walking out of work and being greeted by the most amazing sky on fire. The Atlantic wrote a thoughtful piece about it, and why we’re so drawn to the phenomenon:

For a brief moment, as the sun kisses the streets of Manhattan, nature appears to fall into the order of the manmade world. The sun comes to us.”

We love it for illuminating the beauty of the present. And we love it for alerting us to the enduring clockwork of the much larger world, the one we don’t always take time to notice. “
