Fresh Look: B. Son’s Vertical Stripe Fleece

leave a comment »

My boy Sherif sent over this new site, New Supply Co, offering a B. Son’s Vertical Stripe Fleece and Fee assisted with some more examples at Revolve. I wasn’t familiar with B. Son’s so I looked them up and they’re a brand out of San Fran that provide a line of slouchy T-shirts, hoodies and cardigans for a real laid-back Bay Area feel. I really like the look of this piece, it reminds me of armour and I could picture Tupac wearing this in “California Love” and Jay or Kanye wearing it in “Run This Town”. This is definitely not your average hoodie, more of a nice piece to add to your collection and wow the masses. What do you think?

I just hit up the Ben Sherman sale at GILT and picked up 3 shirts and a tie. They’ve got some good shirts at a discount, so I recommend taking a look: Ben Sherman. I love Ben Sherman because they’ve got amazing style and a great fit. If you need an invite, access GILT Man through my Blogroll. Good luck!

Pharrell Williams x Moncler Collection Preview

with 2 comments

I just spotted this incredible vest designed by Pharrell over at This jacket is DOPE, I don’t know if I could pull it off but I’d love to try. What do you think?

After just announcing their partnership with Japanese brand Visvim for a line called Moncler V, the classic outerwear label now brings news of a collection by Grammy-winning musician Pharrell Williams. The collection features an assortment of all-black jackets, and includes a “pacifist” version of the bulletproof jacket (pictured) with Velcro-ed side slits, reversible matte/shiny down vests and elongated puffers. Each jacket is built with textiles from Bionic, Pharrell’s own company that produces fabric from recycled plastic bottles. Furthermore, printed linings feature images of lush forests, shot at dusk by Japanese artist Keita Sugiura. Prices and distribution details are yet to be finalized

Where Today’s Styles are Coming From

leave a comment »

The New York Times just published a great article on the derivation of today’s styles. Believe it or not, much of the herringbone pants, tweed jackets, and military boots comes from the 1890s. Check this excellent article here. (via

Garment after garment has arrived on the scene that one might think more Gilbert and Sullivan than Bergdorf and Goodman…
