Today…we’re going back in time…today…we’re going BACK TO THE FUTURE!
Nothing says Past, Present, & Future like a pair of fresh Chucks‘! $10
The pants are the burgundy, brethren of my Levi, Denizen collection! Hey, what can I say, good jeans are good jeans. You saw the white & gray in previous posts. These are Skinny Jeans, but with a 33 inch waist. $30
And finally there’s the T’! 2 things to note here: 1. Every man should have a few, what I call, “Poster Board T’s.” You know, like the super ones you find at Target or vintage boutiques? Plus they give you a chance to share a bit of your personality. They’re just good for being relaxed yet still edgy. 2. When wearing a Poster Board T’ remember to downplay the shoes. You want the attention to go to the graphic. A lot like a…yep…POSTER. $12

As the saying goes, “Same ol’ sh*t, just a different day.” Style is all about Versatility! I’m Pretty much rockin the same outfit from yesterday. All I changed was the colors so this post will be short & sweet with one exception, the shirt.
This is my blue, Oxford! The only difference is the finish, price, and brand…which is where the irony is. I bought it from the GAP! Banana Republic…the GAP…same thing. LoL This is why you can’t be fooled into believing price means something. With a few minor exceptions of course. The detail that I want to point out, that I didn’t yesterday, are the buttons that are holding down the collar. This is only a preference, but I prefer the buttons because I like my collar stiff like a superhero, but hey that’s just my Personal Style. *Kanye Shrug* $25
Stay Stylish my friends. #JPSKILLZStyleTip

Cloudy day today. Has a tendency to make things a bit dull. Let’s spice it up a bit shall we?
No shoe spicier than my red hot “ONES (Nike Lunar Flyknit Chukka)!” The perfect shoes for Style & Function! They make any outfit pop! $250
Rollin with my Forever 21, Heritage 1981, parachute Khakis again! Like I said they give the outfit an edge! And the built-in roll at the bottom is perfect for Chukkas! $30
Every man should own an Oxford! Start with white & then work your way out. I’ve got 3. This is one of my favorites from Express. I love the shiny finish! Makes it very polished if necessary, but at the same time, un-tuck the shirt and voila! The white buttons compliment the Chukkas. I also love the way it fits. This is a slim fit. I don’t believe in any other fit. LoL Especially for a button up. If you notice the back is tailored that way. $50
A few people asked so, this is an Express messenger bag by the way. Got it eons ago and it is still holding me down! $70
Alright kiddos. Have a good one. #JPSKILLZStyleTip

Happy Monday gentleman! Look alive! Monday comes with its own struggles, but Style shouldn’t be one of them. I make it a point to be fresh on Monday. I believe it just helps one to get motivated. Colors are a large part of Mood.
Black, Lunargrand boots are my launch pad! Usually a dark shoe & light pants shorter pant is very shortening, but gray is in the dark family as well as the light. That’s why it’s considered the middle ground. So it actually works quite well. $200
The pants are the gray version of the white Levi’s I wore in a previous post. Got them both on the same day! I wish I had went with a shorter length, but they fit well and give me some variety which is always good. Got em’ from Macy’s on sale! $30
Now. Let’s talk shirt & details. The shirt is Express…SIIIIKE! LoL It’s actually from Forever 21! a part of the Heritage 1981 collection! Remember, “It doesn’t have to be expensive, it just has to look that way!” The yellow really picks the Mood of the outfit up and the cut of the stitching is perfect for Nashville! I call it, “TAILORED COUNTRY!” LOL $20 The tie is from Macy’s as well, it’s M151 and it’s a Super Skinny Tie $10. While the belt is from Ross and is reversible. Remember, “every man needs a black and brown belt $12. The key to the tie is making sure it stops just above the belt buckle and right on top of the button. Why would you cover the focal point of your outfit? No need to have a gaudy center piece either fellas. The huge belt buckle has came and GONE! LoL Keep it simple.
Welp! See you tomorrow! Ya’ll come back now, ya hear!? #JPSKILLZStyleTip

Starting with my brown, Lunargrand Wingtips! LU’s colors are purple & gold so…yeah. $250
