I’m an aspiring designer, and to be honest, I’m like a fish out of water. Creatively, I don’t have una problema (Well, at least in my mind I don’t). I know the product I want to design…and I can sketch a reference for a more accomplished artista.
From a business perspective, I know how to set up a business. My wife is an attorney so copywrites, trademarks, business documentation is done in house. Cuentas de bancarias (bank accounts) are set up, business plans are ever evolving. So in theory I have it all down.
It’s not that easy. Merging the two is a dance that requires specific steps and nuances that I’m still training for. It’s a complex equation that I’m still working out. I was talking about my journey through fashion with my wife and she asked me what current designers that are in my particular “lane” of fashion? I answered with a few names and told her that after reading about them, I still didn’t have much more insight.
I went to work a few days later and was browsing a favorite video blogging sight and came across a video that has inspired me and given me some tools and insight to the business side and the philosophy of the fashion industry. So let me share!
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.
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…
With Indigo Denim or khaki corduroy!

No caption needed…
Not a fan of all floral, but making them the highlight of your fit is an awesome idea!
Enclosed is a link that serves as a quick guide when wearing God’s gift to fashion, aka a man’s suit! Now these guidelines do not take into account body type, more modern cuts, and current trends, pero as a generalización it applies and can be a good start!!!!!

I am inextricably linked to my faith. It comes across in every aspect of mi vida!!! Let’s not get it twisted either, my faith being CHRISTIANITY!!!

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.
She. Can’t. Have. The. Tux! It’s ours!!
