Brands You’ll Love
Denim & Leathers by Andrew Marc
Back in February of this year I got the chance to peek into the Denim & Leathers showroom for a glimpse at their Fall/Winter 13 collection. I love the edgy and raw feel of the brand’s aesthetic and the quality of their products. In their own words, Denim & Leathers offers “a new approach to luxury denim & sportswear, capturing the authentic character of vintage pieces, while combining a modern approach of style and functionality.”
The images above from their lookbook give you just a taste of what the brand is all about, but you can see the full F/W13 collection available for online purchase at their site HERE. And be on the look out for some great steals this holiday season. This leather moto that I’ve been lusting after since I saw it months ago in the show room is 75% off! I suggest you shop now while your size is still in stock.

Shopping Guide: Men’s Holiday Sweaters
Ugly Sweater Weather
One of my favorite times of the year is when the air turns crisp and cool and you can finally break out the big warm sweaters. Nothing’s easier or more comfortable than a big sweater. Crewnecks, v-necks, pullovers, cardigans, and zip-ups - there’s no shortage of options when it comes to keeping warm and cozy this fall and winter.
Around the holidays, it gets even better because that is when “Ugly Sweater” Weather begins. You all know what I mean. That time between Thanksgiving and Christmas when people bust out the holiday and ski sweaters with crazy patterns. It’s kinda hard to explain my obsession with them but you know when something is soo ugly it’s actually cute? Like pugs and chubby animals? That basically explains my obsession with “ugly sweaters.”
I rounded up some of my favorite “ugly sweaters” above. But not like your Mom’s typical Christmas sweaters. I’m talking cozy cable knits in fair isle and Nordic prints. They’re a MUST for winter, especially during the holidays. If you’re crazy about these wacky sweaters too (or well maybe just crazy like me) then check out more on my eBay collection where I’ve highlighted some fun picks.

Shopping Guide: Men’s Fall Coats
Favorite Fall Jackets
It’s kinda hard for me to choose the perfect fall jacket. I mean sure you can wear one that’s "everday" but not if you’re extra like me. I need my denim jacket, my leather jacket, my dressy jacket, my sporty jacket, my actually-keeps-me-warm jacket, etc. because that’s just the type of bitch I am.
Here I’ve rounded up a few of the coats I’ve been lusting after this season. There’s pretty much a jacket for every occasion - practical or not - so I’m sure you’ll find something to suit you. Or if you’re like me, you want them all and are already looking for a sugar daddy to take you on your next shopping spree.

Shopping Guide: Men’s Color Trends
Black And Blue
If you’ve been following my blog over the past few months you may have noticed a slight shift in my personal style. Although I haven’t forgotten about bold colors and prints, I’ve become slightly obsessed with darker hues, namely black and blue. There’s just something about wearing these darker shades that tends to give off an effortlessly cool and edgy vibe and hey - there’s nothing wrong with heading over to the dark side!
I created collections with these monochromatic themed outfits in mind. Dressing head to toe in one color can be a bit tricky but will definitely make a bold statement if you do it right! If you’re not ready to go all one color, forget the old "don’t mix black and navy" fashion faux pas and try pairing the two in an outfit for a subtle contrast. Go ahead and check out my Collections and tell me how you’d mix and match the two. Discover great items to add to your wardrobe like custom varsity jackets, hard to find sneakers, and affordable denim like the pieces I’ve showcased above and added to my Collections. How will you try wearing black and blue this season?
You can see some of the black and blue pieces I’ve been lusting after in my eBay Collections. Follow my profile on eBay and my Collections for more fashion inspiration. I’ve highlighted just a few of my picks in the collage above just to give you a taste. What’s great about these Collections is that they’re shoppable! You can create your own to get inspired.
