exploring what it means to be the modern man.

style journal // childhood influences.

Overalls are back. I usually pass on trends that come and go, but like jumpsuits and wide legged jeans, overalls pull on the nostalgia-strings and represents leisure at its best. I definitely have more than one album of me running around in soccer fields and at the zoo in Oshkosh and GapKids overalls.

The overall Gap business is be struggling, but I’ve found a few awesome pieces from Gap.com. When will brands and retailers learn that shopping has very little to do with brand loyalty as it does the right balance of style, fit and value?

But I’ll leave that up to executives and svps to solve, because you know, us youngins don’t know how to run a business ;) Until then, find me on the soccer field reliving my eight year old bliss.

 

 

nyfw: mens, top 5 // carlos campos.

Posted on July 14th, 2015

Campos was inspired by the mysterious “forastero,” an outsider that traveled for work. Obviously romanticized, the collection captures the mood and presents it to the modern man. I’ll be adding longer and wider pants for Fall, so it’s relieving to see the trend continue through SS16. Next on my list: a belted blazer.

 

nyfw: mens, top 5 // david hart.

Posted on July 13th, 2015

David Hart was inspired by the Bauhaus and its artists.. after studying architecture in undergrad, I can sense the subtle references. The most striking parts of the full collection were the colors and geometric patterns. I may not be the most colorful dresser [jk, not at all] but this collection makes me rethink my entire wardrobe, which isn’t an easy feat.

My top looks.. I can’t choose just five, so 6 it is!

 

style journal // spring or summer?

Posted on June 23rd, 2015

This weather is so tough to dress for.. the forecast is always saying ‘Partly Sunny’, ‘Partly Cloudy’, ‘Thunderstorms’, etc., but you never know what the weather is going to be. So of course I wear my favorite Banana Republic x Mad Men mac, and the sun starts to shine through (layering is key, especially since the office is freezing!). When I wear shorts and a button down, its freezing. NYC/Mother Nature, I get it, I’ll never win. But I’m not complaining. I’ll take the heat over the cold, any day.
