Democratic Style: Democratic National Convention 2008

 |  Etc  |  No Comments

If you haven’t been watching it you should, The Democratic National Convention (DNC) started August 25th and finishes on the 28th. Now of course you should tune in because it’s historic, but for the relevance of the blog- tune in to check out the top-notch suits these politicians will be rockin‘. Politicians have such a clean, usually well-tailored and classic style. If you want to know how you should look going into the office or to a job interview take notes from them.

The DNC is being held in Denver, Colorado at the Pepsi Center. U.S. Senator Barack Obama is the Democratic Nominee.

Check out some of the pictures from DNC:

Craig Robinson, brother of Future First Lady Michelle Obama

Democratic Committee Chairman Howard Dean

Illinois State Senate President Emil Jones

John Kerry

Pianist and Singer John Legend

New York Governor David Peterson

Representative Dennis Kucinich

Senator Patrick Leahy

US Senator Edward Kennedy

Future Vice President Joe Biden

Jesse Jackson Jr.

West Virginia Governor Joe Manchin

Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle

The Future First Family

President Barack Obama

Style Notations: Notice that the most of the candidates opt for a black or navy suit and a red, blue, or gold tie. That’s called classic clean…. Personally, I’m a sucker for a well-tailored navy suit, spread collar white shirt, and red tie or light blue tie- It’s perfection.

One thing that I do HATE about alot of older politicians styles is there tendency to have a skinny knot… it just looks old-fashioned in a bad way. And it makes them look fat because the tie goes from skinny to fat- it’s uneven and very unflattering unless you’re rocking a skinny tie.

Welcome To New York…

So, I’m finally here in the city of dreams… and it’s pretty cool so far. Not as cool as Atlanta, but we’ll have to see if my opinion changes. I’m having alot of internet difficulties at my place right now, so my posts may be really sporadic for a week or so… just hang in there!

And I’m actually looking for someone to contribute to The Urban Gentleman on a weekly basis so let me know if you’re interested!


Moving from Atlanta to Manhattan

 |  Etc  |  5 Comments

Hey Urban Gent Readers!

There is a reason I haven’t really posted since this past weekend… it’s because “I’m moving on up (moving on up) to the eastside“, lol (Jeffersons theme song). No but really I am moving from Atlanta to Manhattan to start a new chapter in life and to really experience style in the fashion capitol of the world (I’ll be studying fashion at Parsons School of Design too). I’m pretty excited and nervous, but mostly nervous because I’m going to miss Atlanta- I LOOOOOVE Atlanta:-) And I’m pretty southern, a “Georgia Peach” if you will, so the fast-paced world of Manhattan is going to be different, but I’ll love every moment of it….

So, I’ve been preparing to move all week and I’ve been packing (I’m STILL packing). We’re driving up (pretty crazy huh) so I expect to arrive there on Sunday. I may not be able to write anymore post til mid next week… just check back periodically!!

Oh, and if you have any questions or topic suggestions, just leave them in the comment box below or email me at urbangentblog(at)gmail(dot)com (I’ll be checking my email via my phone for the next few days).



PS- I will be in Atlanta every chance I get, so don’t think for a moment that I’m leaving for good:-):-):-)
