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, 

 Let’s keep in short and sweet this go around. Yo soy a fan of Kanye West. His música, his estilo, and his vida…it’s enviable. He debuted his first full collection in collaboration with Adidas at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in February of 2015. I must admit…I LOVED it. 

 The event was more of a presentación than a show. Now he’s released the full lookbook shot by the incomparable and iconic Jackie Nickerson. Below are highlights from the lookbook pero you can find the complete publication on http://www.seasonzine.com. 

¡Disfruta! (Enjoy)









Gracias Kanye…gracias!!!

Stay fly my friends!

¡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

En Vogue, GQ, Men's Fashion, Men's Style, Menswear, Uncategorized, well dressed

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.

Kingdom of the Beard

Gentlemanly Grooming, Men's Style

Señores,

We, as gentlemen, have to be be mas creativo than the ladies because we don’t have as many opciones. Expressing yourself through style has become more acceptable in recent years and in cultura popular!. The rough and rugged manly-man look has changed. Being a bit more svelte and crisp is now the trend and the norm.

What’s become very popular worldwide has been the reemergence of facial hair,more specifically, beards! Beards have always been mysterious. The trend and acceptance was largely grouped by ethnicity and generation. Many European-Americans, especially the baby-boomers, were not fans of beards. In the African-American culture, beards have largely been aceptado provided that they were well-maintained. Whether a mustache or a goat’s tee…a chin-strap or a full beard, most blacks care not as long as it’s manicured. What’s interestante to note is that to assimilate into mainstream culture, many blacks would adopt the facial hair philosophy of their anglo contemporaries.

If you fast-forward to current times, the acceptance of the beard (the full beard) has grown significantly. In-fact, it’s even gaining ground in el mundo professional. Now I’m not suggesting that you go to an interview as a full on mountain man, but once you’ve landed the job and know the culture, a beard is not automatically out of the question anymore. The key to this transición is maintenance.

So this begs the question, “How do you properly maintain a beard?” Maintenance begins with your comfort level and the desired outcome of the beard. If you are trying to hide or take the atenición away from un otro parte of your face, then certain lengths are great. If you are trying to create a rugged look that is acceptable in all environments, there are styles that can achieve this tambien!

THE SHADOW

The shadow or 5 o’clock shadow is a way to wear a beard that will be accepted in all environments. The key to this looks is to keep it light and low with a clean edge along the jawline, side-burns, and cheeks. Light neck hair is allowable but keep in in check as many professionals will frown upon it. Shadows are an irreverent way to remain masuclino and daring at the same time. Whether with a suit or at the game, a shadow fits todos looks.

GOATEE

The goatee is un favorito of mine. It’s best on the gents with strong/pronounced jaw lines. There are diferente variation of the goatee. Some are long and drop below the chin. Others are light and add just a bit of edge to a look. It usually very popular with the younger señores, pero the goatee adds an welcomed element of youthfulness to the more seasoned señores.

CHINSTRAP

The chin strap, sometimes called the chin curtain, is another common style. It’s a good style for los señores that are beginning their journey to the Kingdom of the Beard. It connects the side burn with the jawline and helps to outline the face. This can give the appearance of a pronounced jawline.

There are dozens of variations of the the beard. The key is to make sure you have the face to wear them. Grow what your father gave you and have fun trying them out. Make sure that your beard is suited for your environment. Unfortunately vivimos (we live) in a world that judges, so err on the side of caution and use wisdom. If you don’t have such profesional restrictions, then try them all. Below is a guide that will help you.

FULL BEARD

Para los señores that are fearless I present to you the full beard!! Admittedly this is a risky beard, but kings…#BeardKings care not! Full beards are about power. They are about presence. They are about strength! Señores that wear these really just don’t give a…

Recuerdo señores, fashion and style is about comfort and self-image. Do what makes you feel good. After all, confidence is the most important part of your wardrobe!
