Señores,

Excited does not begin to describe the nivel de exitación that I have have. Por que you ask; because fall is here! The meaning of otoño (Fall) is sort of esoteric in nature for me. It’s symbólico in nature.

Obviously fall is a change of seasons…quite literally, but it in turn can represent a change in life’s estaciones as well. Fall with all of it’s color changes, weather pattern shifts, and wardrobe varieties represents a shift in the earth and her inhabitants.

As a celebration of this shift, I want to present to you one of my favorite menswear accessory fall offerings, Harrison Blake Apperal.

On a monthly basis, you can get items such as the above September Box sent to you Puerto for a nominal fee. This service is an essential for me and should be for you as well.

As we celebrate fall and begin to redefine ourselves and wardrobe, often times all nececitamos is are minor changes. Slight modifications and additions can take our character, business, perspective, and wardrobe to another level. Harrison Blake Apperal (HBA) is a great way to stylishly accomplish this.

Arriba (above) you will notice that my ensemble is one of simplicity. Grey blazer with well fitting    khakis and a pair of wingtip derbys…simple right.

Well add a pop of color ofrecido por (provided by) HBA adds flare, life, and texture to standard neutrals.

The folks over at HBA took the time to supply us with one of my favorito style elements, pattern mixing. They mixed a polka dotted pocket square with a striped necktie

I took the pattern mixing to another level and added a counter striped poplin shirt and small checkered blazer to texturize the look even further.

Putting bold elementos such as a strong big face reloj (watch) and stacking my own wrist wear adds to the minor changes that HBA has mastered. With the help of Harrison Blake Apperal, my simple ensemble has now been upgraded.  Make sure you sign up and get “Blaked” with dapper accessories at http://www.harrisonblakeapparel.com.

Señores,

There comes a time in la vida de cada hombre when he should be celebrated. He should receive his just due. As men, estamos (we are) often times overlooked and forgetten when it comes to receiving gifts. 

I remember, as a niño, travailing and toiling about the present that I was going to get my madre pero not putting the same effort and thought into what I was going to get mom. As a married man and padre nuevo, I can only imagine how that made my dad feel. (Lo siento papa)

Pero ahora, I have a suggestion. Get you dad, esposo, uncle, cousin, hermano, and/or any other caballero imporante in your life some flowers!

YES FLOWERS!! 

Now flores tradicional will always work but if you want to change it up a bit, get creative!   

Upgrade is wardrobe with some fabulously fashionable floral fittings from Harrion Blake Apperal (@wearlapelpins). 

You can bless his wardrobe with showers of primavera (spring),  splashes of verano (summer) or hints of otoño (autumn).

Señores,

I’m not sure if you knew this, but I kinda like fashion. Menswear makes me happy! Suits, zapatos, shirts, pantalones, jewlery, chaquetas, all excite me! 

 What else makes me happy, however, is comida! Oh the joys of of savoring tasty morsels; the elation that overtakes me when I sip a well crafted beverage is…well, indescribable. I mean, think about it. How amazing of an experience is it cuando you sip a crisp, slightly chilled reisling whist esperando (waiting) on your entree to arrive? A perfectly mixed margarita will do as well!
Life gets even better when you mix both fashion and food! I did just that. I started my Memorial Day weekend with Happy Hour at one of my favorito spots – Japaneiro (located in Sugar Land, TX).

  

   
 

They have an expansive menu of Japanese and Latin fusion dishes. I recommend the Shrimp Diablo and the Chicken tostadas  paired with their signature margarita (below pic). 

 

Ahora, when the comida is this good the fit has to match! It was Sabado so I needed to be comfortable…comfortable and fly! 

 

Watch: Diesel | Ring and Shamballa: Custom

 Es importante to remain comfortable, especially when dining on the patio. The Houston humidity really won’t allow any other way! Lol!

  Entonces, enjoy your your holiday weekend in style and with full bellies. If ever you’re in the Sugar Land Town Center, go check out Japaneiros. You won’t be disappointed.

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.

Couture Couples

Señores,

Buenos Dias/Tardes/Noches!

Im my humlbe opinion, when in relationships, each person is una representación of each other. En las areas importante, each individual should “match” the other. Match in goals…match in family values…match in belief systems…and in my opinion match in style.

 

How many times have you seen a couple and thought to yourself “how’d he get her” or “she doesn’t even match him.” My wife and I are firm believers in “Don’t you embarrass me!” Not in actions, words, or appearance. As a result, we make a fuerte effort to represent each other aesthetically as best as we can. Now we don’t go overboard – I don’t wear a tux to Walmart and she doesn’t put on 4 inch stilettos to pump gasolina  – but we always try to look nice. You never know who’s watchin.

This piece is a celebration of those couples that have the same modus operandi.

 

 

We try to represent each other at all times! #couturecouple

Señores,

Weddings are great…I freaking LOVED mine! Traditionally, men don’t have (nor want for that matter) any say-so in the event. Venue is picked by ella…dress is picked by ella…even the tux is ultimatley picked by ella!
Ohhhh, but today is a new day! Señores, let’s take back the reigns of our manhood…lets put our foot down and take command of a day that is just as much about us as it is her. She can have the dress! She can have the venue, menu, cake, and los colores.
BUT…
She. Can’t. Have. The. Tux! It’s ours!!
Now fellas, be smart…since you’re saying “I Do”, you DO want to look nice. Now when searching for ideas, check some of these out!
