Style has always been my cure ever since my middle school days. It gave me the opportunity visually express myself without even speaking. It has helped me build relationships, friendships and now a career. My style is my armor and savior, it has protected me from the way black men are often perceived in society but it has also saved me from my own body insecurities. I knew no matter how much hair I loss, how funny I walked or how many stretch marks I had…..I would always be the best dressed man in the room! #FACTS
Sometimes you gotta surprise people and what better way to do that than wearing something that is completely out of the ordinary. I have always appreciated certain things about fashion and style, on of them is the ability to say who you are without even speaking. Visual representation says more than words can!
This shirt says I’m wild, eccentric and fun. Which is essentially who I am as a person. I love wearing pieces that exude certain parts of my personality. I call this shirt my Jumanji shirt, it’s unpredictable, colorful and attracts you visually. GOAL ACCOMPLISHED! What’s your Jumanji?! #BeYouBeConfident
I remember being a trendsetter from when I was in middle school! I took one of my Dad’s shiny night at the Roxbury type of polo and wore it in the 7th grade. EVERYONE wanted the same shirt but it was a Vintage Liz Claiborne shirt and they did not make them anymore. I knew ever since that point that I had to influence to be a trendsetter. I was wearing things at my school wayyyyyy before other guys were.
I would often even get teased for being myself and having my own style. I loved who I was and what I represented which was 100% realness. I have always been an advocate for being the best version of yourself no matter what others may or may not think about you! I say this because I mean it, be you and be confident……be a trendsetter! #ModernGentleman
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY everyone! I hope you all are relaxing on your day off and for those of you still working I hope you have a great time when you get off. For those who don’t know July 4th is a big holiday in the great ole’ US of A. Tons of people around the country barbecue their favorite meats, go on vacation to some beach or simply spend time with their family. Whatever they decide to do it’s all in the great fun so celebrating this beautiful country of ours. Yes, we have quite a few issues right now, but on days like this you see people from all over hanging out with one another in love. Red, white and blue is what I’m proud to represent. I hope you all are digging my July 4th style today….and the pretty awesome wall to match the theme. Happy 4th y’all. Be safe and stay beautiful 🙂
