OUTFIT: Men’s Patchwork Jeans
Maybe it’s the Vegas heat but I’ve become obsessed with patches! Well at least for this outfit… Patchwork jeans, patch pocket blazer, and a patchwork scarf - yup! Not really sure what I’m channeling here - kinda like a Japanese street style I guess??? I basically just wanted to go for a casual spring vibe with loose light layers. The deconstructed blazer and linen band collar shirt really help to dress everything down and are nice and light for layering in warm weather. The scarf is another one of my favorites, made from patches of Japanese fabrics and great as a spring accessory. These suede slip-ons I just got are so comfy too! They almost look like Birkenstocks and are very light and breathable. Now that I’ve gotten a taste of warm weather I can’t wait for spring to hit New York.
It’s been a busy past few days with New York Fashion Week and now the PROJECT tradeshow in Vegas but I managed to find time to do some exploring in my neighborhood last weekend. I came across this super kewl antique/vintage shop in the East Village that made the perfect photo op. Stocked with tons of cool furniture and vintage trinkets, it was a welcome break to look at something other than clothes and a reminder to finally finish decorating my studio apartment that I moved into over the summer. Let’s just say I’ve been a little distracted from all the fun the city has to offer but I hope to finish that project soon and show you before & after pics of my new place! In the meantime, follow me on Instagram and Twitter to see some of my Vegas adventures from PROJECT SHOW.
OUTFIT: Men’s Fashion Sportswear
Uhm apparently there’s some sort of sporting event/competition thing (not the Superbowl) called the Olympics going on right now. But those of you not in New York during fashion week probably already knew that so let’s cut to the chase. I got to watch some of the “games” (is male figure skating a game?) totally by accident this past weekend and was feeling inspired to do a sporty winter snow look in honor of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. I basically combined someone “sporty” pieces to make an outfit that was more fashun than performance..but who says I can’t win gold in this outfit, #amirite?? A modern varsity jacket in a stylish black on black, some pleated track pants in a bold teal, a sporty snapback in an edgy ripstop black nylon, and of course my designer APC x Nike Air Max One’s were my choices to give you snowy all-star realness. And although I don’t plan on doing anything remotely athletic in this outfit - it makes the perfect attire for a day of brunching and shopping with my gold card.

OUTFIT: Men’s Camel Coat
The Sunless Winter Tan
Just because you’re stuck inside during this cold, snowy winter doesn’t mean you can’t get your tan on. Let’s face it, you’re probably too broke from all those snow day junk food, liquor, and net-flix binges to afford that sunny island getaway, but adding a warm camel-colored coat to your winter rotation is an alternative way to get that golden glow that’ll be a whole lot cheaper and last longer. My recommendation would be a wool peacoat or topcoat. Dress it up by wearing it over a suit or blazer, or dress it down over a casual flannel with jeans and sneakers. The neutral color will go with just about anything in your wardrobe. My personal favorite color pairings are white, gray, and navy to go with that perfect tan coat. Check out a few options below and let me know which one’s your favorite in the comments!

Proving that minimalism doesn’t have to sacrifice style, the sophistication is all in the details for this collection. Perfectly cropped pants showing just the right hint of sock, band collar shirts with extended hemlines that are perfect for a “modern” look to layering, and a clean neutral color palette that will mesh seamlessly with your existing wardrobe - these pieces should be on every guy’s radar - mine included! And let’s also talk about that navy jumpsuit! I’ve literally never thought I’d be into a jumpsuit but damn Steven Alan makes it look so good. Definitely adding this to my things-to-try list for next fall.
