I won’t lie, I love me some grey. Aside the solid navy suit,I believe every man should own a grey suit in a shade that complements the skin, twice a week. Tons of menswear reads have covered the holy trinity of suits with great passion, but somehow, there hasn’t been enough banter on the importance of one’s skin tone when choosing a suit, especially a grey one. A grey suit, unlike a navy suit slightly is unforgiven:
i love shooting this lady for one reason, she owns her love for vintage clothing. A lot of people profess their love for vintage clothing but it all seems to end at photos or a cheap bargain at a thrift store., only a few really embody the aesthetics of vintage clothing like Dita does, and since I’m a votary of everything that celebrates the 50’s I have charged myself to document the wardrobe of this rare human and her wardrobe.
Before i had any knowledge in suit fabrics, I found the thought incorporating waist coats into my wardrobe quite absurd, considering the fact I live in the tropics where it’s humid all year long. I have encountered a lot of gentlemen who share this ignorant view and i believe it’s mainly due to their little or no knowledge in the types of fabric that exist. Most men on a good day will not go past the color and fit of a suit, which usually leads to bad-buys, and the inability to distinguish the appropriating suiting for different seasons. For example , I find it amusing how a lot of gentlemen gawk at any suit with a slashed price
Men secretly love the things they can’t control, especially when it works in their favor”. You can anticipate that fact that leather will age with time, but you can never predict the exact shade it will take in regards to discoloration from constant wear and polish. Menswear has more than enough expressed it’s love for “patina”; which is basically the natural discoloration of full grain leather over time of use. The love of patina has escalated to a level where footwear manufactures are able develop artificial patinas courtesy of master artisans straight from the factory to the consumer at a welcomed cost.
Totally digging Japanese brand Neighborhood’s fall/winter 14 collection, I have a few favorites from the collection but I decided to show ones that top my list. The retro baseball t shirt is just pure genius, I don’t know why I didn’t see this coming with street wear’s recent love affair with baseball apparel. The color work and font is so reminiscent of retro baseball jerseys. These are great pieces I would love to repeat from season to season.

Eyes are the organs of vision. As basic as that sounds i find the eyes to be open of the intriguing and complex part of the human body. In portrait photography it’s encouraged to focus on the eyes, simply because it usually forms the focal point of the image, an eye in an eye.Over the years I have pretty become very obsessed with the human eye, especially in captured images. The eye authenticates emotion displayed in images, for example, it’s easy to spot a manufactured smile from a real one from the subject’s eye. I find the eye more intriguing when the subject has a blank expression, it automatically becomes a blank canvas with which you can paint any thought or emotion for the subject. I will be featuring 50 photographs under the theme project named EYEs, 20 of which will be available for sale upon request when the project is completed. Thank you.
