My sister taught me to shop out of season. Hell, she would get us stuff a year in advance! LoL But this is when you find the best deals, like these SUPER RUDDY, all white, Gold & Gravy sneakers! $200 shoes, genuine leather, under $80! You kiddin’ right? NOPE! LoL Another no brainer! These bad boys are comfortable too! I haven’t bought anything outside of Cole Haans in I don’t know how long, but these broke the streak! Heck, these replaced my display Golden State Iversons! Now you know that’s RUDDY! LoL Alright, I feel like I’ve met my EXCLAMATION quota so I’ll say no more fam’.
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
