Cotton Trench for Spring

•••
You know, it's just a typical early spring day kickin' it in the park in South Orange, New Jersey in this cool ass coat, with some fly ass photography by Brian Fraser... I'm joking, but seriously though - when's the weather gonna officially break out here? Well into April with 50-degree weather is part of this move north I'm not too excited about. I came for[...]

Brooklyn Bridge, to Me

•••
Was coming off a great evening in Brooklyn... it started by helping my sister toast to the launch of her new real estate firm with Belvedere Mules on the Kimoto rooftop and ended with a stay at the nearby Dazzler hotel. I woke up the next day to views of my new home. My city. My borough. Filled with a relaxed sense of joy, I took my time getting ready and th[...]

Veuve Clicquot Carnaval 2017

•••
I couldn't make it to Carnaval in Rio, but cheers to Veuve Clicquot 2017 for bringing it me, in Miami. After missing the first two, I knew I couldn't miss their third annual installment of this event at Museum Park to toast in #ClicquotStyle with my friends. It was a glorious 77-degree, partly sunny day with a slight breeze and of course, champagne by t[...]

Sweater for Winter or Spring

•••
Coming up on March, I had to share my favorite garment from this past season - this button up knit cardigan by SNS Herning. The attention to detail and threading is so rich it forces you to take notice and get up close. The knit has a great fit that's flexible and forms to the body, while also keeping you warm with it's virgin and merino wool blend for all [...]

The New Jersey Presence

•••
My winter started with an outerwear guide and it's going out the same way it came in - with a great jacket. This has been especially useful since I made my move from Atlanta to the bricks and brisk weather of the tri-state region for today's shoot in 'Jersey. Always been a fan of form meeting function, and this new lifestyle collection by The Presence illu[...]

Birthday en Noir

•••
Two weeks ago I moved to Brooklyn, NY. After 14 years in Atlanta, I wanted to discover a new city and see what opportunities arose. From doing summer leadership programs at Columbia University, Interning in college at Bloomberg LP, and my most recent client visits, I already had a taste of the Big Apple, and now it was time for me to get more into the core. [...]

The First Day of Winter 2016

•••
First day of Winter is officially here, and it's finally cool enough to get into wearing some good outerwear in Atlanta. I just didn't think my first snorkel jacket would be by Members Only... yes, Members Only, the retro-inspired cool ass racing jackets 80's babies grew up seeing in our favorite Uncle's closet - those jackets! In recent years the brand h[...]

Color of the Season

•••
You gotta celebrate the color of the season while you still can. Hues of yellow, orange and browns abound in nature for a short, 2-month span. We must take advantage. I've been rockin' the camel tones a lot lately. You’ll see in some of my previous posts that camel has been a recurring theme in my fall/winter looks. It’s the perfect blend of richness and [...]

Belstaff Roadmaster

•••
My outerwear desires started off with the 90's hip-hop fashion of the Triple Fat Goose bubble coat and Avirex leather, then as I grew a little older and my style evolved, I went to the Burberry Trench, and now, the Belstaff Roadmaster jacket. While I enjoy the jacket for the look and superb craftsmanship, I also appreciate the rich tradition behind the Be[...]

Hudson Was Here

•••
Had the honor of co-hosting #HudsonWasHere denim event at Saks Atlanta with Hudson Founder & CEO, Peter Kim. Proud to also be joined by Celebrity Stylist, Renaldo Nehemiah & Elly Karamoh of Heidioki Bespoke. Two fellow Lifestyle Influencers that I respect dearly. The event played host to about 75-100 guests with music and cocktails by I.W. Harper [...]

Vest for Versatility

•••
A vest works best for versatility. And when your arms are free it's for great flexibility. Mix these factors with some camo and you have the Burberry Trowby vest. When I first saw this and tried it on, I knew it was a winner. Down-filled vest, featuring classic channel quilting and golden hardware details that make for a dope finish. Works well for indoo[...]

Winter Outerwear Men's Guide Part 3 | Shearling Jacket

•••
This is the third part of my Winter outerwear men's guide I'm doing in collaboration with Bloomingdale's Lenox in Atlanta. I had the opportunity to explore their Fall/Winter Men's Store collection with Style Advisor Brian Short and he pointed me in the direction of this Shearling Bomber Jacket. I posted this on the day before Thanksgiving because I feel like[...]
