Now Trending: Mens Jewelry – The Best Unde...

Mens Jewelry – Yes, It’s Happening (And You Don’t Need To Blow The Bank)

If I had a dollar for each message I have received on Instagram about where to find gold necklaces like the ones I wear everyday, I would be a pretty happy guy. You guys know I love to spill the secrets about where I shop for my favorite accessories, but unfortunately I find myself sending the same message 10 times a day..’sorry they’re vintage!’. I believe the best and most meaningful jewelry is the stuff you collect along your travels. My collection comes from all over the place…gifts from friends, flea market finds, high street shops, vintage dealers, you get the drill. To make things a bit easier for you guys, I’ve scoured the web for some nearly identical pieces to the ones I wear and found the best pieces for UNDER $50 bucks. With Spring & Summer right around the corner, it’s time to loosen the collars and show off your man-bling…without breaking the bank. Before you jump into the man bling game, a few things to remember: 1) try not to mix too many metals 2) keep the chains THIN and the charms SMALL (anything too big is entering Sopranos territory) and 3) play with layering and lengths. Happy shopping, guys. x- Preston

Spring is finally here and we could not be one bit happier. As the weather warms up, we’re making sure to layer for sudden chills and sticking to our color palette of the season..rich tones of navy, maroon, and neutrals. We suggest keeping things mostly monochromatic with pops of rich jewel tones like teal and maroon.

As much as we want this heinously long Winter to pack itself up and peace out, we have to be honest; we could NOT be happier that it’s still chilly enough to give our Spring sweaters some loving. Perfect Spring weather in New York usually lasts for about 2.9 seconds in between  snow-squall and summer scorcher. Take advantage of these unseasonably chilly temps and stock up on a few epic Spring sweaters (and take advantage of the fact that MOST of them will be on sale as these retails have to make room for shorts, tees and tanks.)

Spring 2015: embrace the weirdly-chic man sandal

In 2014 we were forcefully taken back to the 90’s in regards the choices we made south of the ankle. Birkenstocks, Classic Stan Smiths, Teva’s…the works. We were giving you a hint of Full House realness and to be honest, we were completely into it (and still are). Aside from sneakers, the breakout stars in Spring 2014 footwear were mens sandals (we’re going to reference these as Mandals FYI), and this year they are back with a vengeance.

The 90’s are still lingering around with the surging popularity of shower-slide styles once made famous by Adidas and now perfected by Raf Simmons, Gucci & Valentino, as well as the familiar styling of the Birkenstock. However, this years go-to mandal combines slim leather straps, modern structural soles, and sleek closures and stitching. When not rocking your joggers and white sneakers this Spring, opt for a slick mandal with a slim pant.
