Randolph Engineering – Sportsman – New Sunglasses!

August 7, 2012 Fashion 1 Comment

Scored these awesome sunglasses for an amazing price (something crazy like 75% off retail) at Gilt. They are a classic, quality-made aviator from the Sportsman line (model SP14611) by Randolph Engineering. These came with the straight, bayonet temples, which I may switch out for curvier skull temples later. Nevertheless, these sunglasses are comfortable to wear and what I really like about this pair is the cool-looking sweat bar, and the utilitarian look of the matte chrome finish.

Favorites from Hermes Spring Summer 2013

June 30, 2012 Fashion No Comments

Hermes’ presentation at the Paris Fashion Week was spot on to my stylistic inclinations. Simple, with attention to cut and materials.

Schott Motorcycle Jacket 689H

February 25, 2012 Fashion No Comments

When it comes to leather jackets, I am always in the market for a good one. This particular version is an updated take on the classic racer motorcycle jacket, very similar to what police motorcycle riders wear. It’s slim fitting, features a spread collar, made of horse leather, and looks pretty bad ass. I may very well pull the trigger on this one.

From Tim Hamilton’s diffusion line, REDUX. I’m into the whole urban ninja look.

I really like that tee underneath the biker jacket. New York Fuckin City.

(Keep it..) Simple. (Get some…) Confidence. That’s really all that one needs to look good.

Thom Browne Fall/Winter 2012-13

Thom Browne fashion shows are never boring. Theatrics aside, the guy knows how to cut a jacket. Slim sleeves and really high arm holes.

Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2012/13

I really like this jacket from Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2012; the colors are rich, the fabric luxurious, and the craftsmanship is evident. It’s unabashedly flashy and in your face.

Prada Fall/Winter 2012/13

January 16, 2012 Fashion No Comments

For me, Prada has always been an “intellectual” brand. I imagine their clientele (both women and men) to be bookish and worldly; the types to be sitting at cafes, drinking espresso, smoking cigarettes, and having lively conversations on art and politics.

In any case, at Prada, I’ve always found the cuts to be smart, the fabrics luxurious, and the construction built with quality. It reasons, then, that I’m always interested when Milan Fashion Week rolls around. And, scanning the photos from Prada’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection, this is definitely my favorite look.

I really like the contrast in pinstripe thickness between the pants and jacket. The accoutrements in the chest pocket are spot-on as well, adding color to an otherwise, somber palette.

Saphir – Best Shoe Care Products

January 14, 2012 Fashion No Comments

As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m trying to get serious about caring for my shoes. I researched and found many menswear blogs and forums praising the offerings by Saphir, a French company specializing in shoe care products. So, I gave it a whirl and purchased a “minimal” amount of stuff to take care of my black and other colored shoes. Namely, Rénovateur (Cleaner and Conditioner), Créme (Shoe Cream) in black and in light brown, and Pate de Luxe (Shoe Wax) in black and in neutral.
