BUCKS… All White Bucks, Light Tan Bucks, Gotta Have Bucks

27 May

The classic buck shoe is definitely in effect this Spring as well as the Summer with some updated looks. Its a very versatile shoe which looks great with shorts as well as a nice crisp pair of dark denim. Step off in some ill sneaks and t-shirt one day and the next day, saute em with a nice button up paired with a crisp pair of khaki shorts as well as a jean jacket and a pair of nubucks. Also accessorize with pocket squares and a bowtie. Render your style unpredictable. Try adding the bucks to your shoe archive, very good look. Continue to elevate your style, content, and character. Peace, Peace.

As promised every week we will be re-introducing you to a nostalgic tune from the golden era of hip hop. This week its from the duo hailing from the Bronx, NY, Camp Lo.

I Don’t Got The Bright Watch, I Got The Right Watch

21 May

Let the lyrics from Jigga give you a dosage of accessory insight hence the post title. Watches are also a great accessory in transforming your look from mild to hot. I’m hungry now, wings anyone? The rubber Time Teller P watch from Nixon provides a very cost reasonable and unique alternative. It comes in 13 different colorways so now you have a piece to concur with those cliche Jordan 8’s that everybody and their mama’s rockin. So if you’re financial leaps can’t quite clear the Breitling hurdle, then quit frontin and cop a Nixon for 55 bills.

The Sky Piece

21 May

As the heavy jackets and colorful layers are removed for sake of the warmer months ahead, the right accessories are vital in enhancing your look. One of the key accessories which should embellish and coincide with your fit masterfully is the right hat, or as my father and the old heads refer to it as the “Sky Piece.” It’s not what the hat does for you, but rather, its what you do for the hat and how well you incorporate it into your mix of sartorial elements. My accessory of choice is the fedora, of which I tend to draw inspiration from vintage films, ancient style magazines, and, well… Billy D Williams. So get your “Sky Piece” game in effect and accessorize appropriately. Peep images of fedora hats below.
