It’s been a cold week up north, and two things have definitely warmed me up.
Call me lazy, or call me busy, but I just can’t find the time to take pictures of myself ‘professionally’ (aka self timer that ish up on that tripod). I work most of the week, and enjoy my nights out with friend, so on my days off, I like sit on my double-bubble and sleep y’all! Thank goodness the iPhone geniuses made a camera that can focus, and a glorious genius created instagram.
While I’m at work or whenever I get something new, I try to post it. I know I know, unlike those other bloggers who take 20 nice clear pictures of every detail on their outfit, I choose to instagram – and I love it. I am an easy guy, what can I say. I’m going to change that y’all I promise! I’ll do both.
So here’s some fashions that are new in my life:
Ksubi sent over these awesome jeans – Thanks guys!
American Apparel sweater
DIY Cropped Hanes sweat pants
My new Acne Amber Wallet
Dr.Martens Manton Boot
T by Alexander Wang Neoprene Bomber
The Rad Hourani hoodie – was a sample (wish I could’ve kept it)
Sophie Hulme Dino Keychain
Nike Indoor Soccer Cleats
Ksubi Smash Tee

One major perk of living in New York is the garment district at your finger tips. You can find anything, get anything made, and much more. I went on a hat hunt the other day and added two new caps to my collection for less that $20! A plain black snap back, and a leather cap I now call mine! I personally like when the visor of that cap is wide. Just a preference of mine, but you can definitely find tons of styles in the garment district.
This isn’t only aimed to those in New York, though. The whole world has Ebay at their finger tips! I’ve been told that if you search ‘Leather Baseball Cap’ on Ebay, you can find some for five dollars, and in tons of colors! Do some searching and get yourselves some nice head gear.
I’m looking forward to that wool and leather cap this winter!
It’s been a full-on man hunt these past couple of years trying to find the right pair of glasses I can actually wear out of the house. Literally, I have been looking for about 4 years for glasses I felt comfortable in, and don’t make me feel like Squidward! My wire glasses were no longer cutting it. After several weeks of putting in lots of effort, and buying then returning pairs I thought were right, a friend of mine (who stated ‘every time I look at them I hate them even more’ to a pair I thought I liked) introduced me to the brand Warby Parker. Where have you been, and why haven’t I heard of you sooner? Finally the search has ended and I have found a pair of glasses I actually love!
You’re perfect, and I will be visiting you more often, you perfect and affordable S.O.B!
A couple of weeks ago I saw this sweater tee at OWEN, and did a DIY version in black (that will be shown to you all later). But, I couldn’t resist the real thing. I can check it off of my ‘Ervell Buy List.’
