Hey, gidday mates! Exciting news on this chilly Autumnal Monday — my good friends Moti Ankari and Marcel Floruss (aka the bloggers behind The Metro Man and One Dapper Street), are launching their shoe line Ankari Floruss today. I was a little dubious when I first heard that they were working on a footwear collection, because from what I hear, shoes are the hardest piece of clothing to get right, but over the weekend I saw the fruits of their labor in the flesh, and I was genuinely impressed. There are seven pairs of shoes in the first collection, one for every day of the week, in two different color-ways each, spanning a tassel loafer, a derby, a wingtip, a boot, a Chelsea boot, a double monk and a sneaker. My favorite pair is the Chelsea boot in black, which I’m wearing here. It’s a steal at $295. Also, they’re throwing a party to launch the shoes tonight at Hotel Chantelle. 7pm. Jenny and I are DJing. I dare you to come crash.Click to Continue!
Yo yo! Comparing a bunch of menswear bloggers to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr is kinda like comparing your grandmother’s book club to the Cleveland Cavaliers, but… when in Rome? So yeah. On Tuesday this week, in the midst of NYFW, a bunch of us boys met up to hang and shoot. The dress code was tailored, the atmosphere was rowdy, the banter was as you’d expect: “Damn that’s a nice suit… does it come in men’s?” I thought I’d share some images from the day that was, featuring Messrs: Bobby Hicks, Denny Balmazeda, Steven Onoja, Sam White, Marcel Floruss, Ryan Styles and Moti Ankari, with photos by James Creel. For the record, I refuse to pull obscene gestures in photographs. Mum gets mad when I misbehave.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Following on from my conversation with Kat Irlin last week, I sat down with my friend and fellow blogger Justin Livingston to chat about the reality of life as an Instagram all star. Besides Kat, Justin is probably my favorite account to follow on Instagram — he has this unique ability to make you feel like you’re right there in the photo with him; something he attributes to shooting his fashion content in the same way that the best food bloggers shoot their table settings. Justin’s career has skyrocketed since I first met him back in 2012, and he has a unique perspective on this social media world in which we’re living. So without further ado…Click to Continue!
1. Let’s kick things off with How To Make A Murderer. Spoiler alert: Don’t be upset when you realize that both Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey were found guilty and are still in jail to this day. I googled it after the third episode because I remembered that disappointing feeling listening to Serial when we didn’t conclusively know anything more about Adnan’s guilt or innocence at the end than we did in the first episode. Turns out these documentaries — as intensely gripping as they might be — don’t all have happy endings like the courtroom drama films we’re used to. Go figure.Click to Continue!
I caught Adam outside The Lincoln Center yesterday as he was getting photographed by a constant stream of admirers, and we talked about everything from how to make it as a blogger to that one time he sat next to Iggy Azalea at a show; plus who he gives a right swipe to on Tinder, his love for Chipotle, and what he listens to when he’s working out at the gym.Click to Continue!
