Since the rap industry took off in the 1980s, there has been a booming effect on the fashion industry. People wanted to dress like their favorite rappers and for a while it appeared that everything got much bigger: pants, shirts, chains, jackets, hoodies, hats. Everything people wore, comparable to the Grinch’s loving heart was three sizes too big. With their desire to look like their favorite rappers and athletes, people were forced to spend big money like they did. However, when people need something and do not have the funds their answer is to steal. There was an outbreak in... Continue reading

When most people see boat shoes, they see a dressy shoe that are only worn by preppy men. However, any well-dressed man will tell you that they are not just an article used for special occasions. They are an everyday product. People often buy multiple pairs at a time, providing color variety as well as satisfying the need for a casual shoe as opposed to one for going out. They need to be broken in well so that being on your feet for hours at a time is a pleasure rather than a chore. Even after months upon months of... Continue reading

When it comes to high end fashion, there’s no better place to look than at college. With syllabus week approaching, young adults everywhere are making their last minute efforts to shed any unwanted pounds and spend the their hard-earned summer money on wardrobe upgrades. All play and no work makes Johnny a happy boy when he struts into a party on his first day back wearing a new Brooks Brothers pastel, a nicely cut pair of Ralph Lauren shorts, and a pair of Sperry’s out of the box. This outfit probably cost him upwards of $300, but can one really... Continue reading

As the summer’s end draws nearer and nearer, one can be expected to have needs when it comes to shopping. When it comes to high end fashion, one particular deal certainly has caught my eye: Brooks Brothers promotion of 50% off of many product as well as some significant discounts for purchases of 2-3 articles of clothing. Any avid shopper can appreciate that kind of saving. Normally one associated a buy one get one free deal with a pair of cheap gym shorts that are practically forced upon you, but in this case the only thing forced on someone is... Continue reading

A battle has been raging since the dawn of time and it needs to be settled once and for all. Baggy jeans versus skinny jeans is no laughing matter. As an openly biased male, I think that they should be divided by gender, needless to explain which is reserved for which. In today’s urban culture, it seems that people only go one way or another for the majority, a majority of which I am not included. For men, wearing baggy jeans, while not fashionable in all settings, is anatomically pleasing and can be contained with a well-fitting belt. I have... Continue reading

High-end fashion is a favorite of many people. My personal love for it came with my appreciation for male beauty, which was my first issue of GQ magazine. This periodical made me into a heavy reader of fashion periodicals. I fell in love with the ads, met some new favorite brands, and had high hopes and dreams for when I would be able to snag all of them. To most of us, high end fashion is a symbol of the lifestyle we all want and crave. We all want to look good and attract the attention of others, all while... Continue reading

Gucci’s 2013 Lookbook presents some pretty decent designs for the upcoming year. The brand has evolved into making more conservative clothing, albeit with heavy celebrity sponsorship. Everyone from the likes of Madonna to Bob Dylan has been sponsored by the company. Gucci offers some very clean suits for younger men. Black suits with matching ties and white shirts seem to be the staple this year. All in all, the designs are very clean and crisp, and offer an upscale fashion statement with conservative tastes for less pronounced individuals. The bags presented in the Lookbook offer some insight into what Gucci... Continue reading

Shorts are a man’s best friend, especially when he has good legs to share with everyone (read: me). I recently came across these Kith Red Label 2.0 shorts that were too good to pass up. The avantgarde design and unique taste of these shorts is apparent in the way they look. Something that says, “Who in their right mind would wear these things?”. That’s the type of fashion I like. These shorts are some of the wackiest I’ve ever seen, and yet I can’t help but think that there are a dozen different ways to make these look good. The... Continue reading

Karl Lagerfield is one of my new favorite high end fashion designers. His clothing for men is so unique and stylish I can’t help but love it. The new Karl by Karl Lagerfield is his most recent endeavor, and is showcased effectively in his fall and winter 2012 ad campaigns. The fall and winter 2012 collection is comprised of a number of different outfits that would look great on any guy. The studded, fingerless gloves are a favorite of mine, and they seem to make it work with each and every outfit, even with a traditional blazer. The model in... Continue reading

Tom Ford recently did a photo shoot of himself in his winter/fall ad campaign. I respect Tom Ford’s work, as it combines classic style with contemporary flair. Slim fitting suits are his specialty, as are on-of-a-kind designs that really pop out at you from the ad. The designer’s figure and sassy stance really shows off the balance of the suit well. Combining a suit, bow tie, and large black frame glasses correctly takes some skill. The tan overcoat and white shirt and pants make for an excellent show of winter apparel. I really love it when pants fit correctly. Slim... Continue reading
