Wearing denim on denim can be hard for some guys to pull off but I have a little secret. The secret to pulling this off is to wear two different denims, here I have on a rugged medium/light wash jean jacket and grey denim jeans. What this does is break up the denim into two separate pieces. We have all heard of the term Canadian tuxedo but truth is you can look stylish in one. Also keep in mind when you are sporting denim on denim always choose a solid colored shirt! A solid colored shirt helps break up the denims as well, the shoes can go anyway from dressy to casual. That all depends on what you’re feeling at the moment. For me, I decided to go with my new Zebra Yeezy 350 V2’s, I was so happy to win these in a giveaway. Some of us get lucky with the Yeezy and some don’t. I personally can attest to how difficult it is to get a pair of these gems but when you get them it feels awesome! Don’t be afraid to rock a Canadian tuxedo……just keep in mind the advice I mentioned above and you will be A OKAY!! 🙂
Ain’t no dragggggg, papas got a new bag! Yes, this is my new leather messenger bag from Buffalo Jackson. I have been mentally on the market for a new bag, the one I have now has ran it’s course and I just needed something different. When Buffalo Jackson reached out to me about trying their messenger bag I said yes without hesitation. The bag is rugged, manly but yet so sophisticated. Everything about this bag screams Notoriously Dapper, it’s almost like it was made for me. Whether I’m in my casual wear (as shown) or suited up I will be rocking this versatile bag carrying my belongings with me every step of the way. Style and functionality are my biggest factors when discovering a new product! Needless to say Buffalo Jackson has done it, they have nailed style, ruggedness and functionality into this product. It does not disappoint! If you’re on the market for a new bag or even some rad plaid shirts head over to Buffalo Jackson! Be prepared to be on the site for awhile……yes, it’s that awesome. 🙂
Today I want to speak to you about how clothes especially suits should fit. We have all seen those men in ill fitting “court date” suits, to me they scream I don’t know how this whole dress up thing works. So, let me just run to Stein Mart and get something real quick. Although places like Stein Mart have awesome clothing for men. Most men forget the one key to looking great. That one key is fitting. Look, we all have various body types and should embrace them. It’s what makes us unique and special, so you must dress for your body type. Just because you’re a larger guy doesn’t mean your suit has to be oversized! You can get a suit to fit you the way most suits are supposed to….well. If you don’t do custom suiting and you buy off the rack, I suggest finding a blazer that fits in the shoulders and chest. The sleeves and mid section can be altered to you specific taste. For me it’s important to have things fit my body right, it gives off the impression that I care because I do. When it comes to buying suit pants or any pants at that, make sure they fit in the waist and thigh. You can get a taper done if you like the legs skinnier for a more modern fit (like I have pictured in the post). Listen, don’t let your size or society get in the way of looking your very best at all times. You can look great in anything as long as the fit is right, not color, not pattern but the FIT! #StyleHasNoSize
Remember fellas they say a well tailored suit is to women what lingerie is to men……let that sink in for minute!
When I think of Italy I think of high fashion, well tailored suits, great food, art and well made shoes. The kind of shoes that make a statement when you wear them. They say something about who you are and how you got where you are in life. They tell a story the same way a recipe or painting does, it is significant to ones life. These Donald J. Pliner Crocco Lux loafers are just that for me. I’ve been blogging and influencing for about four years now and it’s like a mile marker for me. I have always wanted to own some crocodile loafers and shoes made in Italy. Now that I have both in one shoe, it helps me know that my hard work is starting to pay off. I want to inspire men everywhere to feel better about themselves and know that you can wear whatever you want whenever you want to wear it, just feel confident in it. All men should have a good pair of loafers in their life and if you’re in the market for a pair, trust me these Crocco Lux loafers are the way to go……I know style! (lol)
