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! Here in New York, there’s this gang of dudes (mainly models, musicians and other nightlife types) who wear a uniform of black leather jackets, skinny black jeans and tan suede Saint Laurent Chelsea boots. I’m yet to buy into the YSL boot club (whenever I try them on, they make me feel like I’m a cowboy), but I’ve gotta admit, it’s a super fresh look. It’s also one of the best examples of something I never thought was possible — pairing brown and black. It would appear that black and tan is a perfect color combination, especially when the black is denim and the tan is suede. This is my version (and the jacket I’m wearing is on sale for under $100 right now!). One of these days I’ll make the Chelsea boots mine, though. One of these days.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! I’m coming to you live from chilly Christchurch, New Zealand, where I’m hanging with my Mum, Dad, Nana, and Miss Jenny Albright for three days before things get going in Auckland. From Friday-Sunday I’m shooting the Barkers campaign with Tom Bull; on Monday New Zealand Fashion Week starts; and on a few nights scattered in the mix, Jenny and I will be DJing some cool spots in Auckland. It’s all happening! I shot this the day before I flew out for my epic NYC — Frankfurt — Singapore — Auckland voyage, and it was inspired by the sorts of outfits Tom Cruise wore in movies like Rain Man and Roger Moore wore as James Bond.Click to Continue!
I’ve made many a bold statement on Isaac Likes over the years, two of which included: 1. I WILL NEVER WEAR BLACK CLOTHING! and 2. NEVER SAY NEVER BECAUSE IT WILL COME BACK TO BITE YOU ON THE ASS! Well my friends, yesterday I proved the latter line true, and for the first time (possibly ever?) I wore a head-to-toe black outfit. As followers of fashion, we’ve seen the huge 90s style resurgence over the past few months, especially with the proliferation of stonewash jeans being worn by everybody everywhere, but like I mentioned last week, the 90s that I’m getting into at the moment is of the clean-cut Manhattanite yuppie variety — I can imagine a movie star like Alec Baldwin wearing this very outfit walking down 5th Ave in 1993.Click to Continue!
