new balance 247 sneakers in olive

greennb

last week j. crew released a new collaboration with new balance featuring some stylish workout gear.  being that i’m quite partial to lulu and now outdoor voices, i’m not going to jump on any of the clothes portion of this collaboration, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t.  you can check out the full collection here.  there are some really good pieces.  what i am going to do is grab a pair of these olive green kicks you see before you because the color is too good to pass up and they look ridiculously comfortable.  i’ll report back as soon as i have them in my possession.

j. crew suiting

jcrewbluesuit

hello.  how are you?  it’s been a minute since i posted something on here.  i am truly sorry.  i wish i could promise more posts on the reg, but 2016 has proven to be a crazy year.  for example, i met an amazing girl, my company was bought by another company, i’m getting a new dog, i lost 20 lbs…and a billion of other things that you’re probably not overly concerned with.  one thing that i’ve done that might pique your interest is update my suiting game at the request of the wonderful woman i am dating.

when i first met alex, i was repping a couple a couple of brooks brothers suits that i’ll admit i thought looked pretty good.  they were tailored albeit a little loose after the weight drop, but again i didn’t think they looked that bad.  i was wrong.  we met for lunch one day and while going to grab us water i turned around to find her staring at me.  without saying these exact words, she pretty much said, “that thing looks horrid and i will never eat lunch with you again if you continue to wear suits like that.”  point taken.  it was time to get a new suit.   Continue reading

north face for j. crew mountain jacket

NF1

and while we’re on the subject of fratty (see below post)…j. crew has partnered with north face for the re-release of its “iconic” mountain jacket.  i’ll be honest, this jacket looks like every other north face jacket i’ve ever owned, but j. crew’s website tells me it’s a lot different i.e. it has reinforced shoulders like the one from 1985 and longer zipper pulls.  ok, if you say so j. crew.

sometimes you wear tailored stretchy pants

the sweatpants thing won’t go away.  you might as well give in.  i gave in.  i own a pair.  in fact, i may buy another pair this year.  the thing is when you’re a man, sometimes you wear (tailored) stretchy pants in your room or to the grocery store or to the bar (if you don’t give a rip).  here are a few of my favorites:

nike internationalist and nike air odyssey

nikeairo nikeintl

i’ve been on a big nike kick lately.  it makes me feel like a kid again.  (side note: when i was a kid, i went through a couple of years when everything i owned had to be nike related including my school binder, backpack, etc.)  with summer now over and before i turn to boots full time, i’m going to grab a pair of nikes to rock this fall.  currently, i’m trying to decide between these two models: the internationalist and the air odyssey.  for under and around $100, you can’t go wrong here.

new balance crt300

nbcrt2015i don’t play tennis, but that doesn’t matter, because these kicks are fire.  i’m a big fan of new balance court classics and these are another stellar collaboration with j. crew (obviously).  i really don’t need any more summer kicks, but why the hell not?  it’s always good to have options.  get your own right here before they sell out.  they’re going quickly.

golf kit 2015

golfkit2015

i’ve caught the golf bug.  i always get it around this time of year.  it usually last for 3 or 4 months and then disappears when the weather gets cold.  i’m not a great golfer, but i aspire to be.  the first step to reaching that goal is to look like a golfer.  with that said, here’s what i’m wearing and swinging this summer:

travis mathews golf shirt – these shirts are amazing.  they are fitted and have a retro feel to them.  if they’re good enough for bubba, they’re good enough for me.

ecco golf shoes – i used to think these looked ridiculous.  not anymore.  i couldn’t play without them.  they are the most comfortable golf shoes on the market and i’ve pretty much tried them all.  not even joking.

yeti rambler – it will keep your drink cool for days.  days.  did you hear that?  days.

scotty cameron newport 2.5 putter – the very first “big” item i ever purchased with my own money was a scotty cameron putter.  i now own 4 of them.  i refuse to putt with anything else.

titleist pro v1 golf balls – the best golf balls on the market (in my opinion).

masters tour visor – i realize tour visors are super fratty, but i don’t care.  they are essential to my golf game.  no link provided, but you may be able to find one on ebay.

callaway big bertha alpha 815 driver – i must confess.  i don’t own this driver, but i will before the end of the summer.  i bought two callaway fairway woods last year and trust that this driver is the best on the market.  i’ll keep you posted.

arsenal ball marker poker chips – you need something to mark your ball with, so why not show your support for the best football club on the planet.

scotty cameron belt buckle – you will never catch me in a white belt, but that doesn’t mean i’m not going to rock a dope belt buckle while i’m taking your $3 (nassau, bitches).

j. crew 9″ stanton shorts – 9″ is the perfect shorts length for the golf course.  please no chubbies or stand up shorts.  leave your balls in your bag (see what i did there?  i am hilarious.)
