So this isn’t as much of a Style Tip as it is an “I’M BACK” tip.  If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, which I’m sure you haven’t, I had a pretty bad biking incident during the “Tour De Nash” a couple of weeks ago that messed up my leg pretty bad.  I’m just getting back on my feet so I definitely been in the mood to do any posing, let alone put pants on.  LoL  So I didn’t, but this is just a quick heads up from me to you.  Thank you for continuing to grow with me 🙂  “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

Being an adult SUCKS!  It mainly means postponing the things that you really want to do in order to have the means to do them, but I digress!  LoL Because of budget necessities I had to postpone my purchase of these amazing jeans, but nevertheless I have them now and they were well worth the wait!  It’s a rainy day today, here in Nashville and cloudy.  The perfect Blue Collar feel for their debut.  The jeans to which I am rambling about, are my NEW

ALEC QUILTED SUPER SKINNY MOTO JEANS!!!

Okay, so that was a bit dramatic, but I love a sleek pair of Moto jeans and you have to understand that I’ve been looking for a pair of denim Moto jeans forever!  These fit EXTREMELY well, feel great against the skin, and to top it all off: although they are Skinny Jeans, they are designed so that there is room around the knees for flexiblity unlike most Moto Skinny Jeans.  I mean these bad boys feel like a pair of Joggers!  I LIKE IT!  I paired these industrial jeans with my Lunargrand Weatherproof Boots, my favorite Vintage Button-Up, a light Cardigan for warmth, and my rain jacket to ward off the rain drops.  You’ll be seeing a lot more of these hardworking trousers.  Let’s work!  “LIVE ABOVE IT!

BOOTS: Cole Haan Lunargrands $300 l PANTS: Express Alec Quilted Super Skinny Moto Jeans $120 l BUTTON-UP: Vintage l CARDIGAN: Target by Merona $25 l JACKET: Target by Merona $30

JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

Happy Monday fellas! It’s not the driest Monday, but that doesn’t mean you can’t stay dry & be clean! I stumbled upon a great purchase this weekend at The GAP! You remember my En Noir Moto Jeans, which I’m wearing ($80), along with my Lunargrand Boots ($278), well I found the sweater which was a part of that collection! And it was on sale! I got a $70 sweater for $16 BUCKS!!! The sleeves are made with a shiny finish, but not shiny like leather, but a very subtle shimmer. The light has to catch it at the right angle which is a Brilliant design by the Artist. I always keep it simple on rainy days, I just feel that lighter is better with all the heavy rain. Oh and pay attention to how I didn’t clean my boots. Small details play to the day and add character to your look. A man’s look is all about Character. What story are you telling with yours? “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

#JPSKILLZStyleTip: Layering Lesson #5

IMG_00002695

Feelin’ SEALLY’ today because of the rain.  So I’m going to dress accordingly.  I have named this Fit “SEAL!”  As in Navy Seal!  I love it because it looks like I just got home from a long voyage!  Now, what did Seals/Navy men make famous as far as fashion goes?  That’s right!  The Pea Coat!  Well I’ve come up with a look that isn’t quite as warm, but definitely pulls off the same look.

H20 & Seals are synonymous…no pun intended.  So I definitely have to ground this Fit with my Black, WATERPROOF Cole Haan Lunargrand Boots! $278

Of course my GAP Moto Jeans by En Noir made the cut.  They have that industrial, blue collar feel to them that’s necessary for a Seal!  I think I’m going to give my Black BR Jeans away?  Hmmmm… $80

Now, for an old favorite that I RARELY get to wear!  It’s a Calvin Klein Body Shirt, but because of the Navy…once again, no pun intended LoL, it makes it surprisingly hard to match, but I love the shirt.  I suppose that’s why I bought it?  LoL $30

Moving on, this is the key to this look.  “THIS” being my Denim GAP Jacket.  When the collar is turned up it has that Pea Coat feel.  Paired with a skully, you invoke the vibe…I like that…”INVOKE THE VIBE!” $40

Now you know I couldn’t pull this off without my MVP!  Oh YES.  My new Mossimo Blazer from Target.  This top Layer is the icing on the cake because of its solid tone & material which is more like a Pea Coat. $60

BONUS TIP:

The cool thing about Layering is that you can remove Layers!  A necessary feature especially with the moody weather of Nashville.  Simply remove the Denim from the equation and you got yourself a nice, clean, office look!

WELP!  I guess that’ll do pup…that’ll do.  SEMPER FI gentleman!  #FIN.
