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,
There are epic momentos in our vidas that will always be etched in our memories. There are those time cuando relationships can be “cashed it” for great opportunidades! Such a time just recently occurred for me and in the iconic words of Drake, “I feel blessed”! 

I was asked to be a parte of Grungy Gentleman’s VARSITY PROJECT! This editorial project put together some of the menswear industry’s most acclaimed bloggers and estilo aficionados. Curated by GG’s Founder/CEO /Designer Jace Lipstein and shot by the incomparable Eddie Pearson and gifted Moises De Pena – the bloggers were set in the heart of Soho’s sexy streets donning the line’s signature Varsity Pants.

@barrettpall

  
Honestamente, the Varsity Pants are so New York! Durable yet svvelt, chic yet comfortable, the Varsity Pant is anything but a standard pair of joggers. They sit below the waist with a slim-straight cut that bail into a striped ankle cuff. 

 

@astuteattire|@isaaclikes_

@mensstylepro

Pair them with sneakers, oxfords, or boots…it matters not because of the versatility! 

Next up is the All Season Flannel! 

 

@mensstylepro

    

@denny623

 

It doesn’t matter if your rolling up your sleeves for a long day at work, hanging around, or just chilling. You can remain fashionable doing them all while sporting the All Season Flannel. Notice the suede elbow pads that add a classico gentlemanly element to a historically rugged shirt. 

Finalamente, it’s important to stay 2 G in the Grungy Gentleman x Mitchell & Ness collaboration Snapback.  

@denny623

    

There’s no better way to stay warm or keep it cool!

Ahora  check out how the rest of the lads styled the the Varsity Pants and the All Season Flannel!

Señores, 

Social hours as an adulto are often the highlight of our semana (week). La problema is that there are too few eventos that house a strong level  of panache and sophistication while stil remaining whimsical and fun. This seems contradictory pero it can be achieved…was this past weekend.  

Menswear savants, Southern Gents (@s-gents on Instagram), partnered with J. Blacks in the infamous Washigton Corridor in Houston and provided a great ambiente. The event was called The Sartorial Mixer!

   
Patrons could compran for stylish skinny ties or  well made lapel pins, while enjoying tall libations. Guest were not only invited to check the inventory, but to add to the conversation of men’s style. S-Gents wants to inspire men through classy and trendy editions to their wardrobe.

   
  

 
Now, to get in the building, well dressed wasn’t fly enough. Admission required something to the tune of….

   
  

  
   

  

I can’t wait till the next event powered by S-Gents! 

Stay fly mis amigos!

!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.

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).

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!
