JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

September 16, 2014

Everyone has fashion, some have style, but very few have Personal Style. It’s not something that can be achieved quickly. No, rather it must be treated like a fine wine. Today’s post is mainly about…the hat.

I heard there was rain in the forecast so I’m rockin my Lunargrand Chukkas! This is the 1st time you’re seeing me rock them with shorts. You have to have the right balance to pull it off. Got these on sale at the Cole Haan Factory Store awhile back! $50

image

image

The t-shirt is Mossimo from Target ($12) and these shorts are another steal from the Labor Day sale at The GAP! You’ve seen the navy ones. $12

The most beautiful part of Men’s Style to me is the CHARACTER it requires. Our pieces get better with time. They become a reflection of our lives. War Wounds if you will. Men are all about showing off & comparing scars. It’s no different when it comes to Fashion. The more worn & tattered a piece becomes the better. The way it Wears reflects your lifestyle. Take my hat for example: I’ve had this hat for almost a decade now. I got it from Express years ago. I loved how the plaid & brown design matched everything! Still does, which is why I still have it. I also bought it out of necessity, because you know how I hate umbrellas. But as time passed it went from my centerpiece to my gym hat. LoL So for the last few years I’ve been searching for a hat to take its place, but to no avail. Here’s the irony; after trying it on with a couple of fits and comparing it to other hats…I’m wearing again! I’m not ashamed of it! It’s like a favorite t-shirt or jeans, it has CHARACTER! It reflects my active lifestyle and sense of Style. You see part of what makes my Style so unique is that I don’t adhere to one culture. I pull from SEVERAL! My Style is very Motley to say the least. But I do it in a way that goes undetected without scrutiny. I remember how Country, “White” boys who loved to hunt would rock old beat up hats in high school, which is the opposite of how Hip-Hop, “Black” culture does things. It’s all about crispness & newness. A New Era cap, for example, which still has the tags on it. You see while I don’t crease & bend my cap (Hip-Hop) I don’t mind the wear & tear (Country). Together you get my Personal Style.

So don’t repair every tear, or wash every stain…It’s all a part of what makes you who you are. After all, “Nobody’s perfect.” ;) #JPSKILLZStyleTip

JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

It’s Monday! I don’t know why I like Mondays so much. “I’m different, yes I’m different!” LOL Anyway, let’s start this week off right with a little Al Capone, grown & sexy attire. LoL

image

image

image

You already know! Doesn’t get any hotter than my “Ones!” Red just exudes sexy! LoL Plus they are an excellent compliment to all the black. $250

image

Using my black, Divided shorts from the Labor Day, H&M sale! It’s cool this morning, but that will change shortly. Remember, always check the forecast. $10

image

image

image

image

I finally there’s this little gem that I also picked up on Labor Day! It doesn’t get any better than Oxford’s from Banana Republic! An all black is a must for sexy occasions like this one. LoL Notice how basically this is the fit I wore awhile back, but with a change in style of shirt & shoes it looks & feels completely different. Remember, VERSATILITY is the word. $25

image

And of course I had to get the collar tailored. $6

image

Stay sexy my brothas. I think I just found my catch phrase? LoL #JPSKILLZStyleTip

JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

September 11, 2014

image

It is a gloomy Thursday. And with gloom often comes rain. Grab a light jacket and hit the streets.

image

image

image

Rockin my brown, Lunargrand Boots to compensate for the rain. $260

image

image

image

image

image

image

image

You know the pants. They’re my BGR pants from Urban Outfitters, but you haven’t seen the jacket. No. It’s not a Member’s Only, it’s Club House, but no matter, it’s still fly! You rarely see a brown one like this! It’s VINTAGE! It was my grandfather’s. He was very stylish from what I hear. It’ll keep me dry & cool. Perfect for a day like today. $FREE. 99

image

image

As for the T-shirt, another one of my favorites! I call it my “Kanye T.” Not sure why? LoL I got it from The GAP around the time he dropped Heartbreak. It just makes me feel Creative. Love that album. It’s perfect to add some color to the look. $8

image

Stay dry my friends. #JPSKILLZStyleTip

JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

September 10, 2014

It’s Hump Day and people don’t know if they’re coming or going. That’s what this outfit says to me. Is he leaving work or going to work?

image

image

image

Obviously nothing says Hybrid like the Cole Haan Lunargrand Wingtips! You know all about these by now. $250

image

By now you know these shorts well. My Banana Republic, skinny fit, cargo shorts are always up to the task. $20

image

image

And of course my white, Banana Republic, Slim Fit, Oxford. This is a Medium and as you know, I’ve recently switched to Smalls. So I may eventually get another and give this one away. But I definitely want the same shirt! I prefer the length of this one though when it comes to rockin it tucked in with no belt. Pros & Cons I suppose. $40

image

Well, Merry Hump Day. Keep on…Humpin’? I dunno! LoL #JPSKILLZStyleTip

Foggy this morning, but be careful, fog doesn’t mean cold. LoL Always check your forecast. That’s an important part of fashion.

image

Rockin my Poolside Lunargrands today. They help to wick up all the moisture. LoL $250

image

image

The second pair of Gap shorts I got on Labor Day. They are green, but given the right color combination & they can come off gray. These are great because they are slim fit & they have an elastic waist band! Perfect for merging Athletic with Formal. These are super comfortable & Functional! $12

image

Me shirt is Vintage! LoL Which is the best type of fashion if you ask me, because generally you’ll be the only one rockin the piece. I have yet to see anyone in this shirt. It is my dad’s so I’m talking my entire life! LoL super comfortable & breathable. Pops use to cut the yard in this bad boy! $FREE .99

image

Aiight, that’s all, I’m out! LoL #JPSKILLZStyleTip

image

These bad boys are the love children of a collaboration between Roger & the Jordan 3s! For more images & information follow the JUMP…man (do you see what I did there? LoL) ;)

JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

September 8, 2014

Many say, “Sunday Funday,” but I say, “Monday Funday!” It’s a mindset people! If you can’t, tell the weather is starting to transition slowly. So as we experience cooler mornings & nights we have to find a nice balance. That’s what this fit is about…”BALANCE.”

image

image

image

I see you lovin’ the shoes, you lovin’ the shoes, you lovin’ the shoooooes! *Weekend Voice* LoL Vintage Cole Haan! The shoes that started it all for me. The Air Estadio Strap! This is the white/tan colorway! Perfect to put a little…SPRING…in your Fall step. $250

image

image

image

“We built this city! We built this city on Rooock!” LOL Sorry, the music references are just rolling today. Got my Divided, H&M, City Shorts on again. So perfect for, well…everything. The khaki also plays well with the blue of course. $10

image

image

image

Now for a new item! I was in need of a light blue Oxford (as all men should be), but I didn’t want to go with the traditional, accountant style, flat Oxford that you see on older business men, because…well, that’s just not my Style. remember the objective here is develop your own Personal Style. So I found this Slim Fit, Oxford at the Labor Day, Banana Republic sale! It has a nice texture to it. I went with a Small. Now, traditionally I wear a medium, but that’s more because of my neck size than anything else, so to achieve the tailored look that I’m rocking now I went a size down. It’s snug when the top button is closed, but I RARELY (If ever) button my top button. Even if I’m wearing a tie. I have just always hated that noose feeling around my neck…no puns intended. So I say that to say, if you are one of those people who button up to the top then you may want to stick to your actual size. Keep in mind that this outfit and time of the year is about Balance. So a nice Oxford is perfect to stay warm & cool! $30

image

image

I also hate for my collars to hover. So I have my collared shirts altered. Shhhhhh, ancient Chinese secret. $6

image

image

Okay people! Enough standing around! Let’s get to work! #JPSKILLZStyleTip
