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.)

lacoste for j. crew

jcrewlacoste

interesting collaboration we got going on here.  my first thought was why the hell do we need a j. crew and lacoste collaboration.  i love j. crew (obviously) and lacoste is all i wore in college (they used to be hard to find – seriously), but this partnership seemed unnecessary until i read further.  what they’ve done is added a retro logo (dig it), notched the tennis tail (necessary), and updated to a slim fit (boom goes the dynamite).  this is a shirt i can get behind for the spring.  see you on the court, winthorpe.

flannels

flannels

flannels.  you need them and there’s no better time than now.  i don’t mean to be too j. crew heavy on the blog (when am i not though), but their email marketing is on point.  they emailed last week about their flannels and my brain went “hey dude, you could use some flannels for the fall.”  boom.  done.  check out their selection here.  (please note: tomorrow will not be a j. crew post i promise.)

 

golden bear sportswear for j. crew

gbear

i like a varsity jacket.  i’ve wanted one for a while, but i’ll be honest i don’t think i can pull it off.  my shoulders are too big.  i know.  i know.  it sounds like i’m making excuses, but the last thing i need to do is to continue to benjamin button myself i.e. look younger than i already am (if that works here).  that shouldn’t deter you from wanting or copping your very own varsity jacket like this one from golden bear and j. crew.  golden bear has been making these since the 20’s.  it’s the real deal.  you’ll have no problem picking up chicks at sonic after the big game.

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

vans for j. crew sk8-hi reissue sneakers

vanshi1

oh no.  not another j. crew shoe post.  i’m tired of these too, but i can’t help it.  they keep coming with heat.  on this collaboration with vans, they went through the archives and pulled a design straight from the dogtown days.  i’d say they nailed it.  these look pretty f’ing dope.  they also come in “boardwalk” blue.  you can pre-order them on j.crew.com.  i believe i will do just that (unless j. crew wants to send me a test pair).
