Pops Of Pink + More Great Spring Sneakers

Street Style Sneaker Look

Featuring Adidas Nite Joggers Via Finish Line

For me – Spring style is all about great staple pieces put together for easy, effortless outfits while we wait

for the warmer temps and bold patterns. Think about adding pops of color where you can with a great

sweatshirt, and pair them back to a cool pant that’s just as effortless (a great black jacket is always a great

idea as well!). When it comes to spring footwear, Sneakers are my go-to when it comes to putting together

a look like this. After months of chunky boots and thick socks, the only thing I want to wear for Spring is a

great pair of tricked out trainers.

 

These babies from Finish Line are a very welcome addition to my collection – the Adidas Nite Jogger. Not

only are they available in multiple colors (for any look from sporty to street ready) but they are beyond

comfortable and stylish. The boost sole makes them perfect for running errands in the city or to wear to the

gym, and the pops of pink on the body are just the right amount of color for a cool Spring look.

Finish Line has the full offering of these bad boys on their website, click here to check them out. To shop

this exact pair with a great spring street style look – checkout the carousel below. Happy Spring styling!

New Obsession: The Bonobos Italian Performance S...

The Navy Suit I’ve Been Waiting For

I honestly think a well-dressed man can’t have enough classic navy suiting. One of the most versatile suiting options to have in your wardrobe, a chic, slim navy suit will give you the mileage you need in the office while providing you with endless opportunities to break it apart and wear with denim, joggers, etc on the weekend. I thought I had all of my bases covered when it came to navy suiting (hint, there may be more than 5 navy suits in my closet!) until this bad boy fell in to my lap last week. I was given the chance to test drive the new Italian Performance suiting from my friends at Bonobos and all I can say is, WOW. Not only is this bad boy packed with just the right amount of stretch, but the cut is perfectly slim, the fabric is breathable yet luxurious, the color is spot-on, and to top things off – it is under $800! For the same price as a run-of-the-mill mall brand, Bonobos is crushing the game by introducing this luxury suit to the market as such a value. I always say the devil is in the details and these guys hit the nail on the head with wrinkle resistant & water repellent fabric and a shirt-gripping waistband inside of the pants. This baby will have you being the envy of the boardroom and your wallets new best friend.

The Ugly Sneaker Trend

Wearing Ugly / Dad / 90’s / Chunky Sneakers Is A Thing

If you follow me on Instagram, it will be no surprise to you that I am not a fan of the ugly sneaker trend that is currently taking over social media and the fashion industry as a whole. Perhaps it’s because I’ve lived through this style moment during it’s incarnation in the 90’s (high school flashbacks anyone?) or maybe it’s because of the wild prices, but either way I can not justify playing with this whole ugly moment. As I’ve written to many of you, my whole theory on personal style is that it is just that, very personal. I hate seeing friends cave to trends and waste money in the process. Of course I support buying things that make you happy, but I’d much rather you guys invest in classics like a gorgeous chelsea boot, Gucci loafers (backless or classic), a killer Prada brogue, or handsome wingtips that you’ll have for a decade. That being said, I’ve been getting tons of messages on Instagram saying that you’d like to give this wacky-ass trend a shot and I figured if you are going to pull the trigger, I’d save your bank account a few bucks and save you a bit of embarrassment (cue looking back at your feed in 2020 wondering what the hell was I thinking?!) I’ve scoured the web and landed on 15 pairs of chunky sneakers that are under $200 and won’t have you looking like an extra in a bad Saved By The Bell episode. As always, feel free to drop me a comment or a DM on Instagram…happy shopping! x -Preston

The Double Breasted Suit You Can Afford

Double Breasted Suit: How To Style It

The double breasted suit has made its’ way out of the 80’s and into the twenty-teens with slim fits and killer prices. This one from H&M is one of my recent fav purchases. I like to keep things simple and classic by styling it with a tassel loafer and slim sweater (in a festive pattern, of course). Try and keep things monochromatic by layering it with a tonal sweater and black loafers.

Puffer Vests: Keep It Simple & Stylish

Puffer Vests: The Key To Clean & Functional Layering

Layering for Fall doesn’t have to be overly complicated, enter the puffer vest. My rule for Fall layering is to keep things clean, simple & functional. With temperatures jumping all over the place lately, I always suggest to layer functionally, making it easy to shed a layer or two without sacrificing your Autumn look. I’ve partnered with Old Navy to show you guys how I’m styling some of their newest Fall pieces. Start off by opting for a classic crewneck sweatshirt and killer pair of olive jeans. Not only will these pieces stand on their own when un-layered but they serve as a perfect canvas to start adding pieces. Throw on a classic denim jacket for a look that’s perfectly rugged yet pulled together. To top it off, I’ve added this puffer vest (which happens to be the perfect shade of maroon) with a great slim fit which will keep you from looking like the Michelin man when layered.

Buffalo Check You Can Wear Right Now

Buffalo Check: The Heritage Pattern That Is A Must-Have

With morning and evening temperatures sitting pretty in the low 60’s lately, it’s time to start thinking about how to kick off a Fall look while being temperature friendly. This kick-ass buffalo plaid fleece jacket from TopMan is perfect for a brisk walk to and from work while the temps are still crisp. (Super easy and fluffy to throw in your bag and rock a monochromatic look for your lunch break when the temps are too hot). I have a feeling this piece is probably going to sell out quickly so grab it now and wear all the way through Winter with a rugged boot and beanie.

The Camel Coat: Your Best Friend For Layering

A killer camel coat is one of the best pieces you can invest in during the Winter months. If you don’t have one in your closet already…shame on you (keep reading, I’ll hook you up in a few seconds). What I consider to be a closet staple, the trusty camel coat is not only extremely versatile, but chic enough to give any outfit an insta-worthy style upgrade. Thrown over a slim down puffer vest & plaid shirt, your camel coat will give your look an instant slim, GQ vibe while keeping out the chill (I’m trying to get you guys to move away from the bulky puffer jackets here if you can’t tell). This bad boy pictured above (purchased 2 years go) is an MAJOR sale right now at Club Monaco…under $300 and additional sale on top of that I believe.

Christmas Shopping in Brooklyn: American Field x...

img_1726

After a wonderful kick-off dinner in Manhattan last week, the guys from American Field market (think the coolest & freshest menswear designers all in one room showing off their merch) invited me to swing by the Brooklyn market this past weekend. The set-up was killer. Brands ranging from Boll & Buck to Sailormade assembled in one room to meet with browsers, brands, bloggers & editors. Take a peek at some of the pics we snapped at the expo, as well as the look I threw on to venture off to Brooklyn, after the jump…(I linked to the pieces I’m wearing in the pics below…minus a few things that are no longer available in which case, I have subs for you guys!) x- Preston

Turn It Up For Fall: Classic Layers

Fall is all about a fresh, new start. The Summer clothes have been tucked away and some killer new threads are in the closet. It’s time to turn up your Fall style and make a first impression, all over again. To turn up our style, we looked to some classic pieces from a classic brand. We swung by Banana Republic and were blown away by the current product. Modernized and re-imagined yet classic and timeless, we found ourselves in the fitting room with an armful of Fall product. By the end of the day, we had stocked up on elevated everyday essentials like slim pleated pants, classic turtleneck sweaters and heritage slim blazers. We’re all about keeping the color palette neutral and classic, opting for shades of grey and camel (one of our favorite combinations) and the fit slim. Ground the look with a rich leather loafer and belt for a vintage inspired vibe.
