ACNE "ROC TWILL" CHINOS
Spring is coming soon and you are definitely going to want to have some comfy chinos to lounge around in. Chinos are great because you wear them out and look good, be comfortable, and leave sweats out of the equation. You can also roll the cuffs and thrown on some vans and feel beach ready or pair them with dress shoes and a button down for dinner.
ACNE makes my favorite pair. They fit slim, but not too slim. You don't want it to look like your thighs are busting out of your pants. They come in a few different colors like beige, navy blue, and grey and retail for $180.
DOVER STREET MARKET X DR MARTENS X COMME DES GARCONS homme deux
3 names that are synonymous with cool in men's fashion have brought back the line they released years ago that I missed out on. I've only seen them carried at the Dover Street Market store in NY. They don't seem to pop up for purchase online, even on eBay. My favorite out of the bunch is the red mid. They retail for around $350.
Sedona is now on my list of favorite places in the US. It would be tough to argue that a more beautiful place exists. There's not much to do and the food is mediocre, but it does't matter when you can take hikes like these. I will forever visit this magical place to take some time out and appreciate what we have been blessed with.
Every time A$AP ROCKY steps out of the house he proves he is the best dressed man in hip hop. He effortlessly fuses street fashion with high fashion and leaves us wondering how one dude can make such grimey rap while gracing the pages of GQ.
RICH HOMIE QUAN "flex (ooh, ooh, ooh)"
This is my favorite song to play out at clubs right now. NO ONE is up on it yet, so if you're a DJ (or just pretend to be) you must play this record. Rich Homie Quan has been coming out with so much fire and his sound gets more refined with each track.
I don't know how obvious this statement is for you men, but if you're looking for the perfect pair of jeans, get yourself some APC's. They leave off any funny business on back pockets, with no discernible traits that make the brand recognizable except the fit and quality of the jean. They make 5 different cuts so there is a fit for any man.
If you want a jean that will age perfect with everyday wear this is the one. Sure, when you first wear the raw APC's they are not going to be your most comfortable pair of jeans, but nothing great ever comes easy.
When they are finally broken in, they become a one of kind piece that has molded itself to your every move over the last few months.
If you are looking for the skinny fit by APC it is called The Petit Standard. I'm 6'2" 170 and that is my fit of choice. It isn't too skinny but tapers tightly at the bottom so they look good with any shoe or boot.
BAMFORD WATCH DEPARTMENT X ROLEX
"If you can imagine it, we can create it", is the motto of George Bamford, founder of Bamford Watch Department. Bamford takes brand new Rolex's and reimagines them with their own custom coats and special dial treatments. You can customize your own on their website http://www.bamfordwatchdepartment.com. It's rare to come across the watches in stores but I have seen them recently at Dover Street Market in NY.
KILLED YA BY DANIEL WILSON
I was lucky enough to catch this song playing at a dinner party one night. I Shazam'd it and have been thankful I came across Daniel Wilson ever since. Check out the rest of his EP, it's definitely worth a listen.
ASIC GEL LYTE V
If you don't know about the Asics Gel Lyte V then you definitely have not been paying any attention to your shoe game. In 2014 every street wear designer worth mentioning did a collaboration with Asics on this shoe. Ronnie Fieg did numerous pairs including the mint ones pictured above.
All the collabs sell out immediately so you have to try and be up on the release day. Or you can do what I do and find them on ebay if you're willing to pay a little extra.
Undefeated, UBIQ, Concepts, and Commonwealth have some of the other memorable collabs on this shoe as well. I own a few pairs and they are some of my most comfortable shoes. They look great with slim jeans or chinos and a white tee.
