Patterns are a very important part of fashion, but not only this, they are an intricate part of LIFE! In order to find the TRUTH one must look for the patterns… I think I’ve found mine.

Going beyond your Comfort Zone is the key to unlocking your Power.
So if you follow me on The IG then you know that yesterday I vowed to share my latest INVESTMENT… with you. Well, HERE IT IS! This is a $500 ELEVENTY (WARNING: Their site is SO RUDDY!) vest which I caught slippin’ at UAL (Shout Out) for $50!!!
Sometimes thinking can be a bad thing! LoL I didn’t hesitate. Remember fellas, “Versatility is KEY!” It’s actually made of Polyamide which is surprisingly warm but also light weight and everyone knows it repels water like a duck’s back! Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Why are you so excited Joe!?” You see, men knew the importance of a good vest back in the days. They didn’t just roll out, they put in some thought & dear lord, EFFORT.
You see the PINSTRIPES!!! LOL And NO, that is NOT a random picture of the late, great Josephine Baker… okay maybe it is… but who better to illustrate how the ladies will be lookin’ atcha’ fellas? Yea… Jo’ approves so I’m good! LoL *Sigh* I crack myself up. Get used to this Breastplate of Righteousness, because you’re going to be seeing ALOT of it!
You may remember my prior Style Tip featuring this Ruddy Dashiktee? Well I told you I was going to make some upgrades… well, additions is a better choice of words. I don’t want to disrespect these guys excellent craftsmanship! With that said, take it… whatever it is… and make it your own. Plus always pull from your past: The leather forearm guard was actually a gift from Jeff Garner who was our first featured designer back in the good ol’ Nashville Fashion Group days! Those that know won’t tell and those that will tell don’t know. LoL
Everyone should have one piece that no one else has.
