THE GREEN GOBLIN

IMG_0871

I love wearing green, I have said it about a million times on the blog but unfortunately typing it out takes on a whole new level of appreciation for my condition so please bear with me. I saw this tucked tie trend last year but It never really caught on for me till now. I loathe anything that’s too bold; I almost find it desperate, I lean more towards conservative style that’s undeniably chic, like this camouflage effect take on the tucked tie. I love the surprise when people notice I am wearing a tie at all, I feel it’s less showboat and more Allen, right?

BLUE IVY

IMG_0183

About a month ago I picked up this beautiful TM Lewin three button navy suit during one of my thrifting rendezvous.Initially i wrote it off as a bad impulse buy until a liitle inspiration fairy flew my way. The three button cut on this little beauty gave a little room in the shoulder ,but I figured once it was my size it would probably work out  if my tailor and the laundry guys had a go at it, I was so dead wrong.

TURN PINK

ALLEN COLEMAN STYLISTI know I have said this once but I got to say it again, I absolutely love this linen jacket from john lewis. I find myself wearing it with everything from dress pants to my light wash denim shorts with the sleeves pulled up. The length and button stance scores well for an off the rack suit, the lapels also sit straight rather than curve like other already made suits. Apart from the lapels that break lose when I make sudden movements with my arms this jacket is almost perfect. I have grown to love wrinkles so much I have plans of purchasing more linen jackets in the future. The pink shirt, I have always fancied pink on others but I have never mastered up the courage to score one to work till now. Pink has always been a favorite for British men, unlike them it has taken the rest of us some time to catch on and I am glad I finally did. Read More

THE COLE+KID JOURNAL ♣ BROWN SUGAR+ BLUE MAGIC

IMG_3387 When it comes to pairing blue and brown your granny’s wise words might slip the occasion sometimes but this combo here has consistency for decades . In my opinion bright colors instantly have a masculine aura when paired with natural and dark tone colors .

STREET STYLE AFRICA ♣ SUPER FLY

♣ FLY; EVERY TIME THIS WORD IS USED IN THE DESCRIPTION OF A WELL DRESSED MAN IT NEVER REALLY SITS WELL WITH ME UNLESS THERE IS A FULL OR HALF FRAME SHOT OF A GENTLEMAN FROM THE SUPER FLY 70’S INVOLVED. I HONESTLY DON’T KNOW IF IT’S THE FACIAL BEARD OR THE NON NONCHALANT WAY THIS GENTLEMAN’S SCARF AND VINTAGE SAILOR’S HAT HARMONIOUSLY SYNC, BUT IF YOU ASK ME I’D SAY THIS  IS DEFINITELY IN THE FLY ZONE .
