exploring what it means to be the modern man.

Posted on January 6th, 2015

The turtleneck is a favorite cold weather piece as it comes in all different forms, from thin and slim merino to luxe cashmere to chunky, oversized armor-like knits [like this Michael Kors one] that protects from the elements. London weather was a bit erratic though overall pleasant compared to the usual gloomy, rainy reputation. I took three turtlenecks on the trip whiched helped me survive a bitter cold Airbnb, fairly ‘mild’ winter days and some on and off drizzle.

Are you a fan of turtlenecks?

And just as much as London is holiday, so is the cool factor that the city has a reputation for — enter Hudons Jeans. I’ve had a few pair of jeans in the past and lived in them, so I was thrilled to add the Rogue to my collection. Drop-crotch, biker details and waxed cords go to show that Hudson knows whats up.

Though its nice to leave New York and the cold and escape to warmer weather, NYC and London are quintessentially holiday cities in my mind, and so why not skip town and check out the UK [for the first time]?

New vs old

Once again embracing my surroundings [in this case, the awesome El Cosmico] and wearing my favorite pair of Ralph Lauren jeans found in Tokyo, the denim capital of the world, and classic Stan Smiths.
