On January 18, 2012,  Nike announced that the beloved Converse corporation will launch several collections of skate shoes in Spring 2012.  As part of the Converse Skate Ambassador Collection, pro skaters Nick Trapasso, Anthony Pappalardo and Kenny Anderson will each have shoes released on February 1st, 2012 .

Partnering with the professional skaters was inevitable — Trapasso started his own company, Life Extension Skateboards, along with fellow skater Patrick Pasquale. “Trapasso’s signature shoe is called the CONS Trapasso Pro and will feature a multi-density sock liner and full memory foam collar that are designed to conform to the skater’s feet” (Yahoo). Trapasso’s Converse will be available in either suede or leather and either black and white or gray and cranberry, while Pasquale’s will be canvas or suede, available in brown and black or gray and red. Anderson’s skate shoes, the KA-ONE, will “come in black and red, red and parchment, parchment and white, black and white as well as black and parchment” (Yahoo).

With so many materials and colors to choose from, skaters are sure to do their next ollie in style (whatever an ollie is….).

Men’s Style: As Seen On….Californication

Friday, January 13th, 2012

hank moody

For those who may not know, Hank Moody is the main character of the show Californication and is the smoothest ladies man currently on television.  So what’s Hanks story?

Occupation: Writer

Signature look: Black T Shirt and dark denim jeans paired with a sport jacket (Dressed Up) up or a leather jacket (Casual) and of course his signature sunglasses and Blundstone boots.

The Hank Moody look is easily achievable with the help of Blundstone, but whether or not it’ll improve your robot-like approach to women is whole other story.

The Perfect Pair: Men’s Style

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

men's fashion

For months now we’ve focused on the ‘Perfect Pair’ of shoes for women and today it’s the man’s turn. Pair the perfect FRYE combat boots for a day in the city or one in the wilderness (how manly!).

For the city boy: Match your Frye Rogans with deep green pants and a simple silkscreen print tee. Since you aren’t exactly the man-bag kind of guy, accessorize with a simple black and white watch.

For the rugged outdoorsman: Thermal pants, a knit sweater, and a weatherproof coat go best with your black boots. Since you’re so “manly” man-cessorize with a metal hinged cuff.

The Perfect Pair: Men’s Combo Pack

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

men's fashion

Most men need a little “guidance” in the fashion department, that’s why we’ve come up with a brief  ”combo pack” guide. Unlike women, men need socks daily and often have little to no idea how to mix and match their boot/shoe and sock combinations (we understand, it’s confusing).

If you aren’t the bold type, stick with grays and blacks, but if you’re feeling adventurous add a print in the mix — you’ll stand out and you’re sure to get compliments from the ladies (Possibly men too. We can’t guarantee anything). Start off simple and work your way to prints because it is not the easiest task even for the oldest fashion aficionado.

Where Wear: New Year’s Eve Men’s Style

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

new year's eve

It may be easy for women to find New Year’s Eve shoes, but for most men the task is daunting. Here is a brief guide to NYE shopping for Men:

1. Stick to basic black, which goes with everything and is classic.

2. Don’t spend more than $150 on shoes you most likely won’t wear more than a handful of times per year.

3. Oxfords, loafers, and evening sneakers are your friend.

4. For the love of all things fashionable, match your belt to your shoes!

The One, Two, Threes of Socks

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011


Socks are no longer  just for keeping cozy come winter, they have become a fashion accessory staple.

One. Cozy up with a cup of coffee and keep your toesies warm with this must-have winter accessory.

Two. Hipsters have perfected the art of rolled up pants with printed socks. Don’t let Williamsburg take credit for this trend, spread the sock love.

Three. The highly debate issue of socks with high heels still raises questions among many. Why? Because, much like wearing white after Labor Day, there is an unspoken rule about NOT wearing socks with open sandals or heels. But, rules were meant to be broken so put your fashion sense to the test this winter.

Now that you know the one, two, threes of socks, we’re going to spill the beans about our favorite sock brand, Darn Tough: They come with a lifetime guarantee. Yes, that means no matter how stinky or hole-y they get, you’re covered!

Menswear: Bags of Style

Monday, December 19th, 2011


All men of style know that a bag has become the necessary accessory. It is no longer an item reserved just for only the ladies; men’s bags are essentially manly, attractive, and ideal additions to any man’s wardrobe. If your thinking of dabbling in the black hole of men’s bags but don’t quite know which one would suit you best, then repeat this phrase after me ‘Can I get the Bed:Stu Tan Shawn Tote please?!’ There, that was easy wasn’t it?

This tote is a modern take on the classic briefcase. The Shawn Tote is the utmost in casual business attire with its washed canvas look, leather detailing, large functional pockets, and adjustable shoulder (which gives this tote a contemporary edge). If purchased, this bag will add a touch of laid-back masculinity to any casual work wear.

Men’s Style: David Beckham Rugged in Red Wing

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

beckhamred wing

I may be a girl but I know a thing or two about what I want to see on my (imaginary) man: Red Wing boots a la David Beckham. Did I mention that I wouldn’t mind if David Beckham happened to come along with with the 1907 Heritage Classic Lifestyle Moc Boots?

These rugged boots make even the most effeminate man look masculine. The timeless style and durability make Red Wings instant classics, perfect for gallivanting (do men gallivant?) in the woods or rushing off to the airport like Beckham. If you want to look even more like David Beckham, minus Victoria on your arm, pair the boots with jeans or cakis and a v-neck tee. Don’t forget the beanie, which adds to your “I just got out of bed” look.

Men’s Style: Workwear

Monday, December 5th, 2011


Workwear – not the suited and booted kind but workwear that’s worn while boilers are stoked, screwdrivers are turned, and paint is stroked on walls — has become a look that’s taken the catwalk by storm this autumn/fall. No matter if you choose to dismiss it or not, it has none-the-less entered the realm of being called a trend for A/W 2011.

The key pieces defining the trend are dungarees, coveralls, and overalls. Make no mistake gentleman, this trend is for people who want to do something a little different and is not for the faint hearted. But, a look cannot be complete unless your footwear completes the your outfit so step forward the manly Timberland Earthkeepers Rugged lace-up boots.

The Timberland Earthkeepers Rugged lace-up boots feature a recycled rubber sole and even organic laces. Green designs don’t mean dull products. Right now for the few in the know, it’s about shunning that polished look and instead making a clear statement that you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and get down and dirty…
