High waters call for High Waters.
High waters call for High Waters.
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.
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.
Keep your eyes peeled gentleman. #Fin.
It is a gloomy Thursday. And with gloom often comes rain. Grab a light jacket and hit the streets.
Rockin my brown, Lunargrand Boots to compensate for the rain. $260
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
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
Stay dry my friends. #JPSKILLZStyleTip
Today is mostly business and it’s probably going to rain so… here we go!
My black, Lunargrand Boots are perfect for Style & Function! They’re obviously comfortable and they are WATERPROOF! Doesn’t get any better than that for a pair of boots! Remember, generally dark shoes to go along with dark pants make you appear taller 😉 $200
Rockin’ my Express Skinny Jeans, see previous posts, which you should be well acquainted with by now. Once again, you probably wouldn’t figure these for Skinny Jeans, would you? $80
“I be on my suit & tie ish!” grown & sexy fellas’. Easily achievable with the right “EXCESSories!” The white button up is from Banana Republic! $40 A Classic, Cotton, Slim Fit! Every man should have a white button up! PERIOD! The tie is M151 from Macy’s. $10 Notice how skinny it is. Just adds to that tailored silhouette! This is actually a SUPER Skinny tie. Be careful, you can’t rock a Skinny Tie with LOOSE/BAGGY fitting clothes. Finally there’s the belt. Just $12 from ROSS! The key is look not costs and this one is reversible giving me 2 in 1! A man needs a black & brown belt. Those are the essentials. The rain coat is from Target and I’m not even sure they sale this particular one anymore, but it is Merona. Went with Navy because it’s more “VERSATILE!” $30
Class dismissed. #JPSKILLZStyleTip
