“The Art of Dressing Normal.” It is indeed an Art Form. Many don’t understand the impact nor the importance of this philosophy, but if you can master it you can do some damage.
We have a tendency to complicate things in every area of our life, but simplicity is key. Take today’s fit for example. There’s not a lot to it. Many would say it’s quite normal, but there is nothing normal about good taste ie Style.
A solid pair of Zerogrands. They look normal enough, but upon closer inspection you find a TON of detail and technology. $278
A normal pair of slacks. But take a closer look and you run into the herringbone pattern as well as the nice tailored fit. GAP $40
The normal, albeit red, t-shirt. But see you missed the V-Neck collar along with the tailored fit of a quality brand or how the red is the only necessary splash of color present. GAP $12
Or the normal black vest, which you mistakenly thought to be a new one when it merely the gray one I showed you last week, reversed! Strategically chosen for the sneaky cool Fall breeze. Banana Republic $40
You see my friends…there’s nothing more different…than normal. #Fin.

Happy Monday gentleman. It’s a little nippy out there, but it’s not time to start bundeling up just yet. No, just throw on a nice cardigan and some joggers and you’re good to go!
The thing about these Zerogrand Chukkas is that they are not only super comfortable, but they are warm. They give a bit more protection from the elements than my Zerogrand Brogues. They’re the perfect Fall shoe and the color matches everything! I highly suggest purchasing a chukka or boot of any type in this color (Sierra)! And once again, they’re a perfect match for joggers! $278
Like I said, “A perfect match for joggers!” they stop at the ankle so that there is no breakage. These joggers are from Saks 5th Ave and I got them during the Labor Day sale. They are by American Stitch. They are super comfortable and the 2 zipped pockets give them a nice edge. Let a pair of black joggers replace your black slacks and jeans this year! $40
Then you finish it off with my favorite T-shirt (Converse $12) and a SUPER fresh, zip up, Merona cardigan from Target! This is a small so that it fits nice and tailored like I like it! Plus it has that “Heroic Collar ” that yall know I LOVE! Nice & warm, just unzip to turn on the AC…and the ladies ;)
Stay sexy my friends. #Fin.

Well I’ll be a monkey’s right butt cheek! It finally stopped raining! But, it took the hot weather with it. SMH But I love the fall. One can do so much more with his Style. Observe.
Introducing the Zerogrand Chukkas! These bad boys are just as innovative as the Zerogrand Brogues and just as Stylish! These are definitely my favorite right now! They give any outfit a rugged yet refined edge! Remember it’s not necessarily about matching colors it’s about BALANCE! $278
Now for theze bad a**…sorry, pants. They’re from Banana Republic and what makes them so acceptable is that the Camaflouge is not light green like traditional Camo. It’s more like Guile’s blue fit from Street Fighter, which makes them far more versatile and the slim fit is just icing on the cake! I didn’t even want a pair of camouflage pants, but theze were love at first site! $10!
Now let’s talk about the length. I told you that I go with 30s now, which is especially perfect for Chukkas, because you want your pants to stop at the top of the Chukka so that they don’t break. Now I’m 6’1″ so you can adjust accordingly.
You’ve seen both of the top items before. My BR Oxford and Reversible Vest from yesterday’s post. Both slim fitting allowing for warmth while maintaining a nice silhouette. The Fatigue pants look more green or blue depending on what shirt I’m wearing ;) “VERSATILITY.” Now I must say, I didn’t realize I was wearing a complete BR outfit until now. LoL Vest $40 Oxford $20
Well, that’s all folks! Grab your Man Purse and hit the mean streets of Nashville!

Time for a lesson in Effective Layering laddies.
Of course we must start with the shoes. It’s raining again so my brown, Cole Haan, Lunargrand Boots are perfect! “Hell or High Water! ” $278
My BRG Urban Outfitters, skinny jeans will do just fine. Stonewash me! $40
And now for the layering! For my base layer I’m rockin a black tank (unseen armour), then there’s my brown, GAP, V-Neck sweater. Labor Day Sale $10! Not too heavy, but still warm. I go with a small now instead of medium. More of a tailored fit. You want to keep your garments close to your body. It’s better for warmth & layering.
My Grey, rain proof, Biker Jacket from Saks 5th Ave, is more than reliable as my 3rd layer. This is the layer responsible for keeping me dry. It’s light so I want burn up in the process. $100
Top it all off with a sturdy vest. My Merona Vest from Target is perfect! Once again, keep it SLIM! That’s the key. This layer is responsible for keeping me warm, but it’s not a cotton vest so water won’t weigh me down. $40
Well…let’s go singing. #Fin.

It seems like this rain just keeps on fallin’!? I mean, is it October or April? Nashville or Seattle? I don’t know, but I do know Style so let’s get started.
As always we start at the bottom. I call these my “Hell or High Water” boots and there’s definitely going to be some water today. These waterproof, Cole Haan
Lunargrand Boots are key! So VERSATILE and you know that’s one of our vocabulary words. LoL $278
Rockin my Banana Republic, Slim Fit, black jeans $40 along with my black V-Neck by Mossimo from Target $10
Started from the bottom now we here! A day like today is a typical crazy Nashville Fall day. So one must be prepared for ANYTHING! LoL This is why I have found Vests to be pretty Super. They’re not too hot, not too cold. I’ve found the key to be finding a vest that isn’t bulky. I’m still not a fan of the oversized vest, but one that fits snug is perfect! You can rock it underneath other jackets without becoming the Michelin Man! LoL I found this Super REVERSIBLE (Versatile) vest at Banana Republic’s factory store during the Columbus Day sale. Columbus may stand for some…questionable stuff, but at least he’s good for sales. LoL I’m rockin it under my Merona rain coat today. Vest $40 (Usually $100) Rain Coat $40
You may have noticed my new accessory? That’s right…on my Clark Kent Flow! LoL I’m gonna let these be a mystery. After all, mystery is sexy…right?
Stay Sexy my friends.

I wasn’t going to do a Style Tip today, because I just threw something on to do some painting (DC Comics Mural). But this industrial creation was too good not to share. I was actually using these cargo pants because I figured they weren’t tailored enough, but now I see a place for them in my wardrobe again.
Cole Haan, Lunargrand Boots $278 Express Cargo Pants $20 Merona Hoodie $20 Merona Rain Jacket $40 H&M Hat $5 Surplus Lakes Travel Bag $50 Wireless Motorola Headphones $40
Keep your eyes peeled gentleman. #Fin.
