the ugliest shoes you’ll see all season

mhhp

this page in men’s health starts with “here’s one way to guarantee that every man will want to walk a mile in your shoes.”  excuse me.  what?  are we talking about the shoes listed under that copy.  if we are in fact talking about those shoes, then maybe it’s time to check yourself.  these are the ugliest shoes i’ve seen in a long time.  look it’s not my thing to get on here and crap all over someone’s design or product (i’m not qualified to do so), but these do not pass the eye test.  purple + back + gray camo = something bebop and rocksteady would wear on tmnt.  they’re also listed as “the mh must-have.”  really?  we, the readers of men’s health magazine, must have these shoes.  c’mon man.  you can do better than that, men’s health.  (please note the brand is not named to protect the guilty party.)

women we appreciate: the women of tumblr (part 2)

tum1

i may or may not have a tumblr (hint: i have one).  if you’ve been a reader for a couple of years, then you might remember my previous women of tumbr post (it can be found here).  not gonna lie my tumblr is mainly pictures of babes.  if that’s not your thing, then don’t check it out.  i don’t know any of these women, but i would like to one day.  seriously, how are there so many beautiful women on tumblr?  i don’t get it.  oh well.  it’s our gain.  enjoy these pics and check out i took the train if you have a spare hour of so.

black jeans

it’s been a while since i posted something.  i know you’ve been waiting with bated breath to see what’s coming next.  i promise i’m going to do all i can to make the posts more frequent and that starts…tonight.  yeah!  without further ado…

blackjeans

black is a tricky color for menswear enthusiast.  if it’s done poorly, you come across as either a guy who’s trying too hard to look “fashionable” (see dudes at olive garden on valentines day) or a guy who’s trying too hard to be “music business” (see most of nashville).  those two reasons are why i had reservations about ever owning a pair of black jeans.  the truth is when done properly they can be an essential piece of your every day wardrobe.  i bought a pair before i went to paris this summer because i thought they seemed somewhat parisian.  i don’t think anyone misidentified me as a local (could have been the fanny pack or socks with sandals), but they were easy to travel with i.e. you can dress them up or down.  they’ve since been a weekly wear.  i tend to rock with a plaid or chambray shirt.  i also don’t give a rip if i’m wearing them with brown desert boots (now to tell you once again who’s bad).  if you’ve been thinking about pulling the trigger on a pair, but have been scared to for whatever reason, here are two options for a test run: a.p.c. washed denim (above left) and j. crew garment dyed jeans (above right).  the j. crew version are a much better price, but you know them ladies like the way i look in them a.p.c.s.  #nahmean
