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!

 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!!!

La Primavera (The Spring) is here and I am overjoyed! Sunny days, gorgeous flores, and bright sonrisas are commonplace!!! Make sure, during this estacion, that your fashion encompasses the same elements. Fun patterns and bold bright colores are a must. 

Today was a chill day…just because the weather allowed it to be! Met with a good friend at one of my favorito burger spots in the Washington Corridor in Houston.  

 

Lunch was great, the convo was better, the server was interesting then this just spontaneously happened…

   

         

The lesson in this is to always be prepared. Style is a existence. Live in it and you’ll always be ready!

!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…

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:

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.

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!

Flashy fashion…it’ll light up your life!

Señores!!!

I try to mesh trends with classic looks to create a fresh new perspective to fashion. After all, fashion is the antithesis to boring! I mean seriously, how many grey suits can a señor wear? Levis, God’s fashion gift to men, are just jeans after a while.

Well, this may remain true until you understand flashy fashion…it’ll light up your life! Flashy fashion is not the over-the-top looks that dominate the runways. It is, instead, el nombre that I have given the latest casual shoe trend…neon colors. While they have been around for un minuto, it hasn’t been until recently that the neons have become uber popular!

Shhhh, pay attention below:

Alba Prat Neon

Cole Haan (these are on my wish list…oh joy)

Aldo and Prada

Stafford, Austin Plain toe …and they’re $50!!!!!!!!!!

Deltoro…Deltoro…Deltoro, how I love thee!!!!

Men's Cobalt Suede Oxford with Yellow Sole

Prada

T&F Slack

Señores, let me caution you. When wearing these zapatos fabuloso, por favor make sure that they are the highlight (pun intended) of the outfit!!!!!! Don’t over do it…puuuuhlease!!!!!!!
