Jeffrey Fashion Cares 2014 | Atlanta

•••
Jeffrey Fashion Cares 2014 is one of the biggest and most celebrated Fashion Events and Benefits (Susan G Komen for The Cure and AIDS Fund Atlanta) in Atlanta annually, hosted by Fashion Proprietor, Jeffrey Kalinski. Was pleased to be a part of the celebration for the second time, with friends for the cocktail and runway portion of the event. Was a good excu[...]

Revised the Levi's

•••
The idea of casual luxury and a little rebellion can be nice at times. Throwing denim-on-denim, with some destruction allows for a different appeal. With new take on the classic 501 Levi's, this created a good change of pace for me in contrast to the suit and blazer looks I feel that people are used to seeing me in, even though I still threw in the Suit [...]

Sealed with a (Lapel) Rose.

•••
When you're making fashion posts weekly and are consistently consuming this type of media, sometimes you can hit a dull space, a space that needs inspiration... Sometimes a simple accessory is the key to taking you into a new space. I've always worn lapel roses on my jacket and blazer lapels, but never on my shirts. This little orangey red rose by Nob[...]

Black + Gold

•••
From my last few posts, you can tell that I've been really into black for some reason. I can't really determine why,  but it seems to persist... I guess I'm just 'embracing my blackness' - lol! Gold is always a great compliment, so I added a Nixon watch (with a multi-bracelet stack), a velvet slipper by Suit Supply with a gold bumble bee crest and and a gold[...]

Navy + White.

•••
The navy blazer will always be a staple and a key foundational piece in a man's wardrobe. This linen one in particular always keeps it light and a cool complement paired with denim and a button down on a summer evening. I swapped to the white buttons, to give it a more nautical feel and draw the eyes closer to the lines of the garment and silhouette. [...]

Black Sleek.

•••
I've been wearing a lot of white in the summer, but I guess this all made black all the more appealing. Regardless of season, still sleek and always appropriate for the evening.

Lightweight Linen Check

•••
Gotta have a lightweight linen check for summer. Every once in a while I go with loose-fitting linen, but I mostly like my linen tailored, sleek and somewhat close to the body. It doesn't flow as much, but it's way less boxy. Shirt by Suit Supply | Pants by John Varvatos | Shoes by Hugo Boss Cheers, Champagne Jesse

Light Summer Leather Look .

•••
I've been on my white (color) kick so heavy this summer, I kinda forgot about my black garments. This light summer leather look is dark, but in a weird way I feel like it freshened up my summer flow. Shirt by Zara | Denim by INC | Shoes by Del Toro Cheers, Champagne Jesse

Houndstooth Habits.

•••
Sometimes we find a pattern, that patterns our lives. Houndstooth has always been that type of pattern for me. A clean, slightly abstract pattern with black and white dominant, has always seemed to parallel my personality. I've always been a classic type of guy, but I crave color and have a penchant for tasteful disruption that modernizes tradition and makes[...]

Silk + Linen Sharp

•••
For the summer season, we gotta keep it sharp and light. Shirt by Suit Supply | Denim by Earnest Sewn | Shoes by Del Toro Cheers, Champagne Jesse

The Biltmore Gardens

•••
While in Asheville, North Carolina for the second day, we got a chance to venture back to check out more of the grounds at the Biltmore Estate and a portion of The Gardens. The reason why I say "a portion", is because the venue is so expansive and unfortunately we ran out of time. Below are a few captures that I could get my hands on... Shirt by Club Mona[...]

The Biltmore Bond

•••
I was invited to Asheville, North Carolina to The Biltmore Estate: House and Gardens over Memorial Day Weekend for the Wedding of my good friends Gisselle Delapuente and Daniel Pou.  A tremendous place to go and appreciate history, hospitality and an absolute marvel of architecture that will leave you in complete awe... Literally one of the most beautiful de[...]
