¡Señores!

I have been too fond of all black. I know…I know…it’s sleek, sexy, and sophisticated. However to me, it was aburrido (boring)…not to mention yo vivio en Houston. Black in hot, humid, Houston just isn’t a good look. 

Now there’s never a shortage of black during the winter season but there was always a shortage of it in my vestidor (closet). Pero tiempo does bring change and  blackt has overtaken me. Chelsea boots, sweaters, denim, joggers, extended tee, and leather, leather, leather!

Ahora I’m on the black train and I have a window seat. But I will nunca abandon color! Check my simple, yet noticeable look from a marvelous day of shopping during New York Fashion Week!





I broke up the monochromatic black with red, gray, and silver accents just to add texture! Oh and check the texture of the shirt too!!!! 

Stay fly my friends!

!Señores!

I love to try nueva things! As I’ve evolved in my personal estilo, I’ve become more comfortable venturing out. Not only is being sartorially savvy a must pero being stylishly street is more than necesario tambien. Nothing says style like being adorned in a timelessly tailored traje (suit) with a perfectly patterned shirt and tie combinación or rocking a simple…

!Señores!

Springtime is around the corner and that facto tickles the sartorialist in me! Me encanta sprucing up my ensembles with colores brillante! Springtime is when natures most vibrant palette is showcased. The petals, the warm sunrises, la fruta…all of it shouts life. As such I wanted to give a spring preview.

Technically, we’re still in winter. In fact we’re in the middle of winter for some parts of the country. But here is a way to insert irreverently insert some color into your winter wardrobe. When you do it, make it…

Señores!

I enjoy a suit just like the next hombre! Suits have long been a símbolo garnering repeat, having power, and being distinguished. This is no secreto. I don’t know about you pero when I wear a suit I power up like Popeyes did when he ate his spinach!

Suits generally have a seriousness to them. Being distinguished usualmente has is akin to being stoic and stuff. I disagree totalmente. I encounter this aburrido (boring) sentiment at my 9-5. So I wanted to have a little fun in two of my favorite business suits.

Thursday’s Threads

Señores!

Today was una dia buena! My niece had her holiday program for escuela and I was sitting in the audience with my chest swollen with pride. Just as every fashioneur does I tend to toil and mill through my closet and drawers for what to wear for un evento especial!

You know the drill…pulling pantalones from the closet and laying shirt after shirt…after shirt on them to see what excites you. Next you try to solve the equation of socks + shoes + belt + wristwear =??????

After which you put it on, look in the mirror and either give the nod of approval or the bitter beer face!! It’s a dance that we all have done…some more elegantly than otros!

Today, before my niece’s programa, I stepped on that dance floor and below is the outcome. I was very pleased. Check it out.

3M: Mission Male Model

GQ, Men's Fashion, Men's Style, Menswear, Uncategorized

Señores,
I have been on a quest for fashion greatness for sometime now and I have reached a milestone. Since high school I’ve had a growing love for fashion. Admittedly, I made it dormant porque being the star of the team, and being really into the cut de los jeans or color blocking, didn’t necessarily mesh well at that time.

However, as I grew in maturity, my passions grew stronger. The summer before universidad I started modeling. At that point is when I was overwhelmingly bitten by the fashion bug. However life happened. Mi amor for fashion and style couldn’t be fully pursued because I was blessed with a college scholarship.

Durante universidad I grew in my personal style and was noted for being a stylish estudiante on campus. I started customizing jeans with bleach and paint and was known to be very edgy and tendy. I even revisited modeling on a real low level. I would attend castings and they would love me except for the tattoos and pierced ears.

Fast forward to my mid twenties. I began to do editorial shoots in Houston hoping to gain some traction. That really didn’t happen. Then came 2014…Noviembre 2014!!

At 32 years old, after being in dozens of local fashion shows, participating in gobs of TFP editorial shoots, a number of rejections from agencies for things that are accepted now – I caught a break. I am now a published model and I was able to grace the runway on a grandote platform (Fashion Houston)!! This is exciting to me because it was a dream that came true. I also, as a budding designer, seasoned blogger, and growing stylist, want to experience the fashion industry form mucho diferente vantage points. Here are out captures of that glorious November that has ignited un fuego in my desire for fashion iconicism!

Señores, this experience has catapulted me into opportunities that I could not have imagined. I am grateful to God!!

I just wanted to share SOME of my exciting news con ustedes!!

Stay fly my friends!!
~SG

Señores!

Me encanta ropa!!!!! It’s true, I love clothes. Certain brands just tickle my fancy. This post is a tribute to 7 brands that I can’t live without. You might be surprised when you see my choices.Imagezara.com

Imagezara.com

Imagezara.com

Imagezara.com

Zara is the quintessential brand. They’ve received some heat from designers for not being original, pero me encanta, nonetheless. The brand keeps their pieces edgy yet timeless. The best thing is the affordability for the quality. Yo quiero everyone to have the ability to be fashionable and with Zara’s precios, todos are able!

Levis!
I’ve said it once and I will say it again! I. LOVE. LEVIS!!

With over 14 diferente fits and different designs in each fit, the variety is enormous. My personal favs are the 501’s (shrink to fit) and the 511’s. I’m a tall lean guy so those fit me the best!

What may be most impressive about Levis is the price! I’ve never seen a pair that were more than $90.00! And at the discount stores such as Ross, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, etc. they are a fraction of the regular price!

SPREZZABOX

Just like you I’m an #InstaJunkie! While on mi favortio social media platform, I ran across a great menswear accessory company that has a dope product and business model! Bienvenidos a Sprezzabox!!!

El concepto is really great! For just under $30 per month you will receive a Sprezza Box that has 4-5 menswear essentials to ensure that you remain Guapo! Such items include

The items in this box retail for $112, but again, $28 is all you pay! I’m geeking over this!!

Lastly, zapatos!

I, as any self-respecting menswear maven hold shoes in a special place…with the gods!! Fashion would be obsolete without them! Most especially without

jd-fisk_header

nordstrom.com

There are dozens, and I mean DOZENS of custom cobblers that make exquisite footwear for Señores pero at a premium price! What’s most enjoyable about JD Fisk is the price for the quality! These shoes will rival some of the stronger brands such at Magnanni, Allen Edmunds, and the like. Plus, la compania siempre keep up with the trends! See for yourself.

See what I mean…

 

Let’s move on. Vamos!

Another shoe that crept it’s way in my corazón back in high school is the Adidas ZXZ sneaker.

Señores, I want to be honest with you. I don’t know how many variations of this sneaker Adidas has. And. That Excites. Me!

This is the ultimate urban sneaker. It can be paired with chinos, khakis, jeans, shorts, and workout gear!

Again, there are many other brands that I adore such as Diesel, Hudson Jeans,Mek, 14th & Union, Herschel, Tallia Orange, Thomas Dean y mucho mas! My one criterion is affordability. Breaking the bank is not always a necessity when it comes to style. You just have to be diligent in your pursuit of her…if you love her as I do!

Remember, style leaves and impression but fashion leaves a legacy!

Boots; to wear or not to wear…that is the question!

Seňores,

When I was a child, I spoke as a child…I thought as un niňo, pero now I am un adulto, I put away childish things!!!

As a kid, I didn’t like boots. See, I’m from Texas and this is what I knew about boots:

Phto cred: esquire.com

Photo cred: esquire.com

Now there is nothing wrong with a good pair of cowboy boots (like I said, I am from Texas), but they – as all footwear – have a place…una casa where they would feel comfortable being showcased!! And as a kid, that house wasn’t mine. Now I’m still not a huge fan of cowboy boots, but I have learned a bit about its cousins…

Vamos!

Chukka Boot
It is thought that this boot is derived from the sport of Polo. The name Chukka, as reported by our amigos at The Gentlemen’s Gazette, is actually the name of a period during the game of Polo. No wonder this boot is so classic!! This timeless boot is best worn with a heavier pant or jeans! It’s the boot that can be dressed up, or casually displayed! The boot comes in suede and leather, and the toe box can vary in width.
Suggested wear – Khakis, denim or chinos.

monsieur jerome

Combat Boot
The evolution of this specialized specimen of of footwear has been fun to watch. As the name suggests, it was originally (and still is) used for the brave men and women that serve their country in the military. Nowadays, however, the combat boot has a more glamourous reputation. The combat boot has become a favorite in urban and streetwear. It’s a versatile boot that can be worn casually and slightly dressy. The boot, however, always adds a rugged touch to all outfits.
Suggested wear – denim, chinos, cotton sweats pants, pant leg slightly tucked in.

Chelsea Boot (dress boot)
To many this boot is known as the dress boot. It became popular in the 60’s and it’s demand hasn’t waned since. Generally, they have a high, close fit ankle to avoid the ever-irritating flopping! Though it’s known as the dress boot, it can still be casually worn.
Suggested wear – with slacks, a suit or jeans and a blazer.

Rain Boots
I used to think that the toe of a rain boot looked like a ducks bill!!! (Don’t judge me, lol) – I was still growing in style. Ohhhh but now…now I understand all that is the rain boot! As the name implies it’s boot made for wet weather. However this is not it’s only use. They have now morphed into a very fashionable option for footwear.
Suggested wear – jeans and winter/raincoat.

Motorcycle Boots
You know these…the ones that bikers made famous. The ones Erik Estrada diefied along with aviator sunglasses!!! Motorcycle boots are a fav among rockers and…you guessed it, motorcyclists!!! Movies in the 80’s always portrayed the hot, bad boy with the stoned washed jeans, leather motorcycle jacket with the wide belt and crisp white tee. That was the symbol of sexiness then…and guess what, many women still find it just as sexy.
Suggested wear – see previous sentence, lol!

Topsider/Brockton Boots
This boot is a favorite among teens. With varying ankle height, una hombre joven o adolescente can get different looks from them. The most popular brands, and very good quality, are Polo and Sperry. This type of boot is a casual in nature but can be a great juxtaposition and used to “prep” up an urban, street look.

Do note that these are just categories and there are many…MUCHO variations of each. Some with higher ankles, slimmer toe boxes, thicker heels, wing tips, etc. The details are simply a personal preference. Find the style you like and run with it!
