Not the typical couple, but partners in street-style crimes. We so often see those street-style photos, that focuses on the lonely walker, detailing the pieces of that everyday model being photographed, but when there are two people that just so happen to be walking in sync while wearing looks that compliment each other, those would be fashion twinies! It’s easier to get men unintentionally working together to give us modern day Paul Newman & Robert Redford moments.
Sometimes its the suited couple, sunnies mates, the double blue moments, the soleful pairs… in pairs, and two smiles are better than one.
I know you guys are visual creatures, so just like in school, pay attention to the picture. Even though this guide is focusing on how a suit should fit, use this image as reference next time to decide to get a tailored blazer, or pants, a tux, anything on your back that you’ll like to make an impression with.
It’s all Common’s fault. I was just minding my online business, searching for inspiration and I got more than I expected. This photo.
Simple and direct, yet sexy and, and… look at those forearms! Continue reading “Monday Men Style: From The Wrist Up Part Two.” »
An afro, a top that cannot be defined as one, and tight jeans no other man can wear, Lenny Kravitz, knows exactly how to get us rowled up by watching him in this video “Believe In Me,” but what if you never saw the video to this song? Would you like the song more? Where would your imagination take you? Going back to the video, it’s obvious Lenny Kravitz wants just that, for you to use your imagination and have him do all the things he does in the video and more, to you!! Or is that just me?!
Before “Can U Believe,” by Robin Thicke, I never had a song make me come to a complete stop in the middle of the sidewalk, until the first time this song graced the presence of my eardrums! My musical heart skipped a beat while I walked on busy 34th St in NYC one cold, winter afternoon how many years ago. The immediate repeat of the song that same day, later had me standing in a corner out of everyone’s way. That night, it was the only song I played on my way home. To this very day, I try not to play “Can U Believe” too often for fear of getting tired of the lyrics and the instrumentals. I want the same musical high I got that cold afternoon, every time it’s played!
Common, Common, Common! When I use to play this song, a decade ago, I convinced myself it was me he was talking about in the video. The girl with the locks, that was me. The girl who was his Light, meeee. He said, that he’ll tell me the rest when he saw guess who, me! His voice had me going CoCo for Common and it still is.
Some girls like to see the eyes, others the teeth, some want to see to see the shoes on their feet,but me, I look at the man’s hand from the elbow to the wrist. The well defined veins on that part of the arms seals the deals with a watch, leather bracelets, or even rolled up sleeves. That’s one of the first things I look for when physical features comes into play.
After a night of getting opinions about that part of a man’s body and how some accessorize it, I couldn’t help but pull these pics from some of my favorite tumblr blogs and share them with you. Use your imaginations ladies & gentlemen (not judging) what type of man is attached to each of these arms?
The days are getting hotter along with the men. Something in the air just makes most of the guys bring their A games beyond the doors of their home. The clothes are cool, haircuts fresh or deliberately messy and toned, muscular bodies are quite evident, then there are the accessories…. Well the guys don’t put much effort into the accessories like us ladies and that’s ok with me. I’m personally thankful that they’re doing it right in just the attire department, but what if? What if they were to go the extra mile with the watches they wear, the bags being carried, even the clips they use for keys, wallets etc?
Last week I found some some great photos on Anchor Division.com of accessories and bags that I would love to see NYC guys using. Pieces the guys can use to photograph us ladies, stuff our shopping finds into or clip an extra set of our keys with.
If all else fails, I have no problem rocking all of these accessories, especially the watches. Nothing a watch repair shop can’t make tighter.
The days are getting hotter and the pants are getting shorter for the guys now. Time for them to impress us with their legs, hairy tattoos and all.
