!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 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…

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!

ECKO’S Enlightening Experience

Señores,

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.

BUT….

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!

Señores…la introduccion de Marc Ecko!
