Señores,

I love collaborating con otro movers and shakers. I truly believe in “we can all eat”! There is sufficiente space for all of us to shine. As such I wanted to collaborate with Samuel (Samo) Thompson (@samodinero) and David R. (@_fromnytotx) as well as the incomparable blogger and photographerJosh Aaron (@theurbanesavant).

Be on the lookout for theses caballeros! Samo is a budding designer who has seen moderate success and garnered a strong reputación for design and style. Daveed is making strong waves in estilo and blogging and the incomparable Josh Aaron is a silent assassin! He’s working everywhere and on everything. Stay tuned to todos of these señores.

The theme was to highlight our everyday wear. All of us adore a good suit…tailored to perfcción, pero we wanted to just by comfortably fly. You know, show how we look cuando estamos chilling! This was fun!

Check out our work después the cut…

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.

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!

Kicks, Men's Fashion, Men's Shoes, Men's Style, Menswear, Shoes, Style Tips, Uncategorized, Vouge, well dressed

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!

Couture Couples

Couples, En Vogue, Fly, Gentlemen, GQ, Lifestyle, Men's Fashion, Men's Style, Menswear, Relationships, Style Tips, Uncategorized, Vouge, well dressed

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

FALL Florals

En Vogue, Fly, GQ, Men's Fashion, Men's Shoes, Men's Style, Menswear, Shoes, Style Tips, Vouge, well dressed

Señores,

Fall is here. OH JOY!!! Every fashioneur…every style maven gets excited about Autumn. The layering of clothes; accessorizing with rich, bold scarves and hats; boots…ohhhh the boots!!! Aaaaaand the textures drive us insane (in a good way). One of the textures that is often underrepresented in our wardrobe is floral. Tradicionalmente, floral print in menswear is saved for the Spring – largely because flowers bloom in that time of year.

However….

Think back; think back to an October of your childhood. Do you remember los colores of the leaves? Shades of crimson, orange, and marigold! Hints of heavenly hues of green. Close your eyes and feel the wind in your face…see the wind sway the weakening lily blossoms and the fading grass. As you see, floral prints belong here too.

Now that it’s Fall, make sure that your wardrobe pays sufficiente homage to the florals of this time period too!!
Let me show you why…

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!!

I remember my grandfather talking about his glory days. The days where he’d work 12 horas por dia and still go to school.

The days that all the young “tenders” wanted him to walk them to class.

Or those infamous days he had to “walk 5 miIes to school…up hill…in the snow…BAREFOOT”!

My reply: “Barefoot”? “Gandaddy, I would never do that”.

Lemme show you why…
