Comme des Garcons has been one of my favorite brands for as long as I’ve loved fashion. Probably the thing I love most about Comme is that there is literally something for anybody, no matter how freaky or conservative your style might be, and no matter how deep your pockets are. When I was younger and broke I’d save up my dollars and dip my toe in the Comme water with the fragrances (Comme 2 is an all-time favorite), leather pouch wallets, and everything Comme des Garcons Play; but as I’ve grown older I’m more and more obsessed with Comme’s takes on really simple pieces, like the blue worker jacket I’m wearing in this photo — it’s a classic Carhartt or Dickies style, but cut in the most beautiful indigo blue textured cotton.

This past weekend, all my friends congregated in extremely rural Pennsylvania (Amish, Menonites and all) for a mate’s wedding, and I brought along my Nautica city threads to see how nautical style would deal with a clean, green, countryside backdrop. Not a bad juxtaposition if I do say so myself. You can take the old dog out of the city, but you can’t teach him new tricks. Famous last words.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! My mate Denny Balmaceda posted on Instagram a couple of days ago: “This summer, I’m all about Venice beach style.” and it resonated big time because my go-to outfits have suddenly become exactly that — printed shirts worn open over white T-shirts; jeans with white socks; Vans Sk8 Los; etc.Click to Continue!
