Hey, gidday mates! Today’s outfit was brought to you by the colour white and the letter D. As I’ve mentioned a billion times before, it had never even occurred to me to wear white jeans before I moved to America, but now that I’m here, I spend a good amount of time in the most stain-friendly of stain-friendly pants. They’re literally the white T-shirt of bottoms, they go with everything. But for those of you who don’t come from a country that embraces the white and you’re not quite sure how to do it, the only way is to just do it. Wear them hard, like you’d wear any other pants any other day. Don’t be scared of ketchup or mustard or dirty park benches. The good lord invented bleach for a reason. Then, when you’re used to it, go the whole hog and throw on a white denim jacket to complete the ultimate white-out ensemble. What could go wrong!?Click to Continue!
Aubrey asks: Hi Isaac. My boyfriend and I are both 32. We’ve been together five years. He still lives at home. He’s Persian and Jewish and I’m American — therefore his family doesn’t approve of our relationship, so I’ve never met them. I was told that they don’t accept me because I’m not Jewish, so I converted to Judaism. It was a long, hard, two year program. NOTHING has changed. No engagement. No introduction to his family. My boyfriend is STILL just giving excuses about it and apparently the family’s issue is that I am a convert in the first place (he never told me that before I converted). What gives? Do I keep waiting around for him? If this were you, what would you do? Why do guys only say what they think you want to hear?
Oy vey. This is a pickle of a situation.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! From 1950s college campuses to Sinatra and the Rat Pack, Original Penguin has been outfitting cool kids all over the world now for 60 years. My first dabble with the brand occurred 10 years ago in Los Angeles when I bought a couple of pairs of Penguin swimming shorts that were unlike anything I’d seen before back home — i.e. awesome 1960s style trunks as opposed to baggy below-the-knee boardies — and I’m pleased to say that the offering is still just as solid. I picked up this seersucker suit and polo combo to wear to the Tan Lines gig the brand put on as a 60 year birthday party last week in Williamsburg (good times all round) and I can honestly say that my CPW (compliments per wear) ratio has been absurdly high. The people have spoken, and the people love seersucker. Get in the game!Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Eddie Bauer officially opened doors at its first Manhattan flagship yesterday, and invited me along to join in the festivities. Highlights included street tacos, chilled dranks, a series of $500 vouchers given to unsuspecting bystanders, and an opportunity to try on every garment in the shop.Click to Continue!
