THE JPSKILLZ STYLE TIP OF THE DAY! | BLACK PANTHER

With this weekend’s opening of Marvel’s Black Panther I am excited 😃 for my people’s jubilation for the awe inspiring, positive, visual representation of so called “black people” in a world that constantly feeds us a negative one.  But at the same time we must be vigilant.  Brothers and sisters… one’s STYLE should be a representation of one’s HERITAGE, TRADITIONS, & CULTURE and not merely an illustration of one’s fantasies.

“A man may be known by his look, and one that hath understanding by his countenance, when thou meetest him. A man’s attire, and excessive laughter, and gait, shew what he is.” Ecclesiasticus 19:29-30 KJV 1611

Fresh should be easy and a man’s ride is his new horse!  #OPTIMUS

The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of The Day!

My sister recently asked me if I’d ever given any thought to putting some artwork on shoes.  Well I hadn’t, and MOST HIGH willing I will do a project for her, but until then, this is my first endeavor into the field.  I converted these Tom’s into a personal work of art!  Seeing how Tom’s are literally made from CANVAS, they definitely made great first candidates.  I simply used my usual beloved acrylic paints.  I think they turned out good.  How about you?

“INTRINSIC VALUE.”  Perhaps the most important phrase when it comes to STYLE.  SHALAWAM!

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!”

The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

YO!  YO!  YO!  Wassup fellas’!?  Been a minute…I had to recover from a long week of Nashville Fashion and all the whoa’s that came along with it.  But I’m back!  And what better way to come back than with a nice NEW garment!  Heroes need 2 things: 1. A reason and 2. A SLEEK jacket!  Well, my new leather…well…Pleather Express Biker Jacket definitely takes care of #2.  Yeah, yeah, yeah I know what you’re thinking, “What if it rains?”  Hence the PLEATHER!  Despite popular belief, Pleather is probably a far better option for the average consumer and some could argue PERIOD!  You don’t have to worry about getting it wet, no animals are harmed in the process, it’s actually more durable than leather, and last, but certainly not least, it COSTS A WHOLE LOT LESS!  And remember, you don’t have to spend a million dollars to look like it.  Every man needs a nice Moto Jacket in his wardrobe, you’re looking at mine.  It instantly toughens up any look.  It’s one of the most Manly staples there is!  Heck, I almost bought a Harley too!  LoL  When you do go shopping, keep in mind that you want the jacket to fit snug so go a size smaller than what you would usually wear and there are many designs to choose from so you’ll just have browse until one speaks to you.  You’ll know it when you see it 😉  I paired it with my Moto Jeans and a nice, lightweight Spring sweater.  MAN UP GUYS!  If it’s good enough for The Fonz’ then it’s good enough for me & you!  “AAAAAAYE!”  “LIVE ABOVE IT!”
