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! I’m writing to you live from 30,000 feet above ground — Jenny and I are en route to Greece (Santorini, Poros and Athens) — so next time you hear from me, expect to see white buildings with blue domes and plenty of ocean meeting the horizon. But first… On Friday we caught a car out east to The Hamptons with the team from Ray-Ban and a ton of bloggers, and spent the weekend running around from pool to beach to restaurant to club to way-the-hell-out-in-the-middle-of-the-sea for fly-boarding. Needless to say, it was good times. Our only requirement: Remix seven pairs of Ray-Ban sunglasses. Check out ours!Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! We’re three days into New York Fashion Week: Men’s, and it’s been a doozy. Yesterday was our busiest day by far — we got up early to hit the Coach presentation, ran over to Gucci to view the new collection, went home to eat, cabbed back to the fashion week venue to takeover Nautica’s snapchat for their show, went from there to the Mr Porter Block Party, which we were co-hosting, did an outfit change to head over to the Tommy Hilfiger presentation, made a quick stop off at Moti Ankari’s eyewear party at Hotel Americano, then back to the Mr Porter Block Party, followed by dinner and home.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! On Monday night in New York City, the team behind Hugo Boss’ new fragrance #BOSSTHESCENT very kindly invited me, Moti Ankari and Justin Livingston along to the premiere of the third installment of the Divergent series — Allegiant — including a walk on the
red black carpet, a cushy seat on the mezzanine, all the popcorn we could eat, and a private audience with star of the films (and BOSS THE SCENT) Theo James. Here’s what went down.
