A long weekend is never complete without a trip out of town with your own special crew of crazy friends. I enjoy the long drives and the way the universe plants your favorite song right dead middle in the playlist just when your sleepy little head slides down the shoulder next to you, but my favorite parts is all laughter and shameless selfies.

I love almost anything in tie dye, so imagine my joy when I came across these tie dye socks from ANONYMOUSISM. These will look so chic in both my casual and formal wardrobe, I imagining a lot of solid and dark pieces to make these work their magic.
After days of going back and forth on design and fabric, this is what Dita finally decided on to a wedding we recently attended. It’s such a fulfilling feeling to create a look from scratch, especially when you get to be in studio whiles your idea is being brought to life. Next time we put an outfit together I am damn sure going to document everything from a A-Z.photo & write up : Allen A. Coleman
Shoes,shoes, shoes is all this gentleman knows? Not exactly but I take pride in my love for shoes, I have seen the shoes on the guys in the IT department and I would pay more than an arm and a leg not to comeback in my next lifetime in anything they own. Hunting for shoes has become a sport that I have developed quite a liking to, the process is a patient one especially when it involves scouting countless shelves of shoes in thrift stores. In most cases when I spot a pair of shoes I quickly do my research on the brand and its history, unfortunately sometimes some of these shoes have no trace of the maker. In the case of this beautiful tan brown lace ups, I picked it up and walked away with a smile just off design and thorough inspection. The stamp of quality just from going through serious wear and finally landing on thrift store shelves in good condition is primary reason why I love scouting for vintage shoes. photos & Write up : Allen A.

The menswear world is buzzing with the release of IKIRE JONES SPRING/SUMMER 2014 and I am not surprised at all as only a handful of brands who are heavily influenced by tailoring look like they are really having fun with it like this brand is. Out of the collection The kihindire is clearly my favorite, a shawl collared dinner jacket with a vibrant and bold motif, this jacket is the perfect candidate for that crowd catching moment. Unlike the other jacket in the collection the Kihindire seems one with the wearer. I love how slim the sleeves have been cut, the soft tailoring compliments the jacket well, this definitely one for the summer weddings and parties.
