Hilfiger X J.Crew X Ralph Lauren X Clarks

I sure wish I was in Tuscaloosa for the Bama vs LSU game . I was stuck on the couch (in New York) with an ungodly heart rate, screaming “Strip the ball!” at the televsion, knawing and chewing on pillows. We lost 9-6 in overtime. I was pretty dissapointed after the game, I’m not ganna lie. But we’ll bounce back stronger than ever. Check out yesterdays look.

What Else Do I Do With My Free Time?

Yeah that’s me shopping. Some days when I have free time I shop like most people. And most of those days I do my best to not spend money. Unlike most people I don’t have a problem with just going to look at clothes. I absolutely love just looking at clothes. People don’t like to look at clothes especially when they don’t plan to spend money or have money to spend. Not me. I love clothes – I love to look at them, to touch, and feel fabric. But what’s really happening when I’m looking at clothes? I’m fantasizing. I’m fantasizing and parlty calculating about what this shirt or that tie could do for my wardrobe. My style is very calculated, there’s nothing random about it, and it’s probably the only calculated aspect of my life. I’m fantasizing of how I would (confidently) wear whatever it is I’m looking at. Fashion is a fantasy anyway, right?

In my free time you can find me posted in front of the television for football Saturdays and Sundays. Afterall, I am southern. I haven’t done much shopping as of late. I’ve been busy. Busy managing my (three) fantasy footbeal teams. I’m 5-2 in my best league while my girlfriend actually has a better record than I do in our league. She’s on a two game loosing streak and i’m on a two game winning streak. I’m looking to make my playoff run bout this time. I’m ready.

I’m also ready for this Watch The Throne concert this weekend. During my college years I lived for live music and attented festivals and concerts with my friends religiously. Those were great, blurry, high times. I’m talkin’ HIGH times bro.

Not this go’round. I promise to give a play-by-play of what’s sure to be one of the greatest concerts I’ve attended. It’s ganna be hard to top Radiohead and Coldplay (HIGH), but if anybody can do it, Kanye and Jay-Z certainly have the capability. Not sure what I’m going to wear. Jeans? For sure. Tie? Possibly. Pics to follow. Stay clean.

Socks & Bow-tie

I said I would post picks of my bow-tie and socks soon. Well here are the goods. I wanna reiterate how excited I am to wear these socks.

I had a very important meeting this night. I was a little nervous but for the most part I was confident. I was confident in what I was wearing and what I was wearing made me confident. And let me tell you, I nailed it; completely nailed my meeting and was actually complimented on my look. Something  I’ve discovered is that if you don’t feel particularly confident, you should atleast dress confidently. And somehow that style confidence and swagger will translate into a confident attitude. And that’s what both you and I want. Check out the pics. I can see I’ll be wearing my vest alot this fall. Stay Clean.

J.Crew X Ralph Lauren X Levi’s

I did a bit of shopping this weekend. I love J.Crew and usually purchase something every time I step into the men’s shop on 79th & Madison.

“You know outerwear is 20% off today sir” said the dapper gentleman in the navy 3-piece suit…

 Well sure I’ll buy a vest, I mean why not? This buttton down really needed a heavier (wool fabric), darker tan tie, which I almost bought. But I held off so I’d have someting to look forward to purchasing next week. I also got some socks I’m really excited to wear. I’ve never been excited about socks but these joints are nice. Pics of the socks and bow-tie I purchased last week coming soon. Stay clean.

Tweed Run Wrap-Up

The Ralph Lauren Tweed Run was this past weekend. It was a gorgeous day in NYC; perfect for cycling and perfect for styling. My girlfriend and I decided to check out the event and check out the Rugby Store on University Place. We ran into some Occupy Wallstreet demonstrations and pressed on in style to visit the store neither of us had seen. The store is small in dimension but gigantic in style – nothing less than what you’d expect from Ralph Lauren. Here are some pics….

So we did a little, and I mean, a little shopping. I simply cannot go into a store and not buy something. It’s a problem, like for real. As a matter of fact, today i walked into the J.Crew Men’s Shop and bought a bow tie. Do I need a bow tie? Not partiularly. But I bet i need it when it’s in my closet. Anywho, I picked up a simple tan/brown striped button down, on sale might I add, and bought my girlfriend a lovely wool dress. She was really excited about the dress – because she looked so damn good in it – and excited about the store in general. Here’s a peak at the goods. Stay Clean.
