I found this picture on J. Crew’s blog for three reasons:
1) This bomber jacket is a great jacket for these early spring days where one may need a light jacket.
2) I have to represent Colby any chance I get.
3) It gives off great retro vibes as well. Don’t be surprised if you see items like these in stores all over.
“The rise of social media means that these tiny little companies like mine have this global reach, which is [as] awesome as it is time-consuming,” he said of his company, during an onstage interview. “It’s a positive thing for our men’s business when it comes to selling more clothes and opening more dialogue.” For More

Now that Spring is finally appearing in Maine, I am seeing white Chucks out in public more than before. This is one recommendation I have for shoes for the coming months. They provide a great look with any outfit from the very casual to pretty formal. They are also a slimmer high-top sneaker, so they won’t make one’s ankles look as puffy.
And if they can help Danny Zucko get a letterman sweater, imagine what they can do for you.
J. Crew Spring/Summer 2014
Now that I have finally made it to Spring Break, I figured it would be time to start looking at Spring/Summer purchases. J. Crew has some great options in the shirt department. This year, like last year, I am very intrigued by the short-sleeve shirts and the popovers. Here are three items that caught my eye:
Floral prints are very popular this season, so the popover would be a good choice because of the print and the design. The short-sleeve shirt has a very pleasing color combination that make the shirt stick out. And the Oxford shirt is jumping on the trend of two-tone Oxford shirts. I find the contrasting pocket and collar more appealing than the color-blocked Oxfords.
UNIQLO teams up with Pharrell Williams, internationally renowned music producer and recording artis
While Pharrell has been reclaiming his place in the music industry, he has also been showing his sartorial savvy. I would recommend catching the sneak preview of his collection with Uniqlo on March 31st. This promises for some stylish clothing for a good price.
New Bastian x Uniqlo collar is too gnarly.
Check out Michael Bastian’s new collection with Uniqlo
He designed some great polo shirts perfect for the Spring with a price point of $22.90. The contrast sleeves and collar make this one of my favorite polos in the collection.
The 2014 Best New Menswear Designers in America
For the eighth year in a row, we’re naming the most brilliant new menswear makers in the country. The designers (and the friends who inspire them) are all pictured here wearing the clothes. And with GQ’s guidance, they’ll each have an affordable new line coming to Gap stores this fall. So without further ado…
Be sure to keep on the lookout for the Gap collection! There was some really cool stuff last year in limited run. It is a great way to get high-quality, designer garments for a fraction of the price.
This fox shirt is the ideal short-sleeve shirt in my mind. This would be a great shirt for any casual outfit. I would wear it with either selvedge jeans or a pair of Zanerobe Sureshots. I would finish it off with some Chuck Taylors, Vans or MacAlister Boots.

What you know about pockets.
ccp x softs – ghost line – beyond coach jacket
Just something amusing to see. This jacket has pockets for every situation you could imagine. Don’t worry about carrying around your oversized book or water bottle around anymore. There’s a pocket for that!
An Outfit for a Warm Taste of Spring
Jacket: Members Only/ Shirt: Vans/ Jeans: Paige/ Shoes: ASOS/ Laces: Hickies/ Socks: Happy Socks/ Sunlasses: Proof/ Hat: Qilo/ Cuff: Giles & Brother
TGIF! Last Sunday was such a tease, the weather was actually above 40 and it felt like there was going to be a break in the winter weather. Though it was only a rare taste of what is to come another month from now, I couldn’t help myself from wearing the bare minimums. I had been waiting patiently to wear my baseball t without a large coat situation for far too long! Even though it was only one day, I can keep wishing for warmer days to come!
