drake – more life and clarks collab

drakemorelife

drake’s long anticipated more life dropped on saturday night.   i just read it broke the 24 hour streaming record with 89.9 million streams.  wow.  that’s insane.  i’m about 4 full spins through and i really really like it.  on a scale of 1 to take care, it feels like a solid 8 right now, but that rating could go up with each listen.  there’s a lot going on in this record.  it’s going to take some time to truly dissect it.  with that in mind, stand out tracks to me are: “passionfruit”, “portland”, and “ice melts.”  that should give you a nice start for your spring break playlist.

in other drake news (and also on saturday night), he posted an instagram picture of some custom made ovo clarks desert boots.  hmm.  very interesting.  is there an ovo / clarks collaboration on the way?  i’m not a hypebeast by any means, but i do love me some clarks.

for dudes who don’t like clothes

i went to a party a couple of weeks ago where word got out that i had a “lifestyle” blog.  it was first referred to as a “fashion” blog, but there is nothing fashionable about to take the train.  i also wouldn’t call it a “lifestyle” blog.  it’s a place where i like to post things i’m interested in.  not a big deal, right?  well, you know how dudes are.  we can’t talk to other dudes about clothes and shoes, because that’s what chicks talk about.  i’m not sure why dudes are so scared to talk about clothes with other dudes.  they’ve been essential since the fall of man (unless you are in fact a nudist and clothes are not part of your daily routine).  one gentleman at the party asked me about his attire and what he should do differently.  i’m not an expert, so i tried to avoid the issue.  i just know what i like to wear; i can’t tell you what’s going to look good on you.  with that said, i put together some inoffensive suggestions for those of you that are not interested in hashtag menswear or pretend like you don’t read style blogs.  here’s where you can find the items above: j. crew cords, ledbury shirt, leather plaque belt, billykirk wallet,  and clarks desert boots.

out with the old

i realize i talk a lot of shoes on here.  no apologies.  they’re easy for me write about because they’re one of the things i update regularly.  with that said, i’ve been eyeing these ronnie fieg limited gray desert boots since december.  my old brown beeswax desert boots are a couple of months away from a hole in the sole, so it was time for an update.  the gray boots came on friday.  they’re incredible.  if you’ve got some extra funds and need a new pair of dbs, try the gray.  available exclusively at david z.

clarks desert boots x ronnie fieg

while checking out the david z site this morning i noticed these gray clarks desert boots designed by ronnie fieg.  i had just given up my search on finding a pair of gray desert boots.  perfect timing.  i hit purchase.  i’ll post pics when they arrive.
