Silver Shoes: Hugo Boss


These shoes immediately caught my eye, they are ridiculously sexy. Silver shoes in general, I feel, are a serious must for the fall, winter, and spring… They’ll give even the simplest outfit enough flavor to look flawless. Immediately cop these shoes if you can.

A Man’s Bag

As the world now knows men wear bags, more specifically men carry bags like women carry purses and in some cases men buy women’s purses and wear them in the same way. Some people hate it, others love it, I… well I see that this trend will soon not be a trend, but just a way of life. If you don’t see alot of men rockin’ bags in your city then it’s probably because your city is just a “late-bloomer” give it a year or two and you will.

The man bag and murse are fine, but I still love to see a man with a classic messenger bag.

I found a flawlessly perfect one online:

Now this a man’s bag. Its authentic, classic, and leather.
It looks like it belonged to your great great grandfather, but
yet it looks like you can give it to your grandson when he
heads to college. This satchel is perfect. If you need a new bag
and you have the funds go to jcrew.com and buy this bag $795

If the one above is too pricey for you, check out this
dark brown messenger, it’s just as original, but with a
slight modern edge for $225, jcrew.com

Inspire Me: Street Fashion… sockless

Hey guys, sorry for the long break in posts… but Parsons School of Design is a beast! and it’s consuming my life these days, but I am determined to get back to my daily schedule of posting…

Any who. I was rummaging through the net and found some really haute pics that inspire me in their own way, and I was going to just keep them for my personal delight- then I decided they would be great for the blog.
I heart saddle oxfords.
I know y’all are probably thinking…
Cindy this is some dorky ish.
But I love this because it’s so Benjamin Bixby.

Trends this look embodies:
the manbag/murse
the simple man/classic look
no socks

I am really feeling this casual look because
its so effortlessly stylish.

Trends this look embodies:
pants roll
vans shoes or skippers
manbag/murse

If you look at him starting from the head down to
the waist you would know in your heart that he’s
wearing some nice tailored trousers, but nope.
This gentleman is confidently rocking denim
jeans complete with slashes.

Trends this look embodies:
pants roll
manbag/murse

As you can see sockless is the way to go… yes, it’s getting cold but its not ice cold yet. Cuffs and rolling up your jeans is very chic and very in, so for these next couple of warms weeks be sure to cuff up your pants and rock your skippers with no socks. When winter comes invest in some really classic, unique socks in a variety of colors.

Look of the Week

“Look of the Week” is a new feature to come to the Urban Gentleman that will feature a complete look to get you through the week. So take notes and pay close attention to ensure that you will be the flyest guy on campus, the club, or maybe even just your neighborhood. (“The Look” and this article is compliments of one of our past local gentleman Alija Harrison)

THE JEANS:
Levis
Levis are very long lasting and classic. Their boot-cut on purpose, for those gentleman that may have bigger feet than the average. Also, with this color of denim you can wear them with sneakers or dress shoes.


THE SHIRT:
80s Purple Tee
-OR-
Armani Tee
“Even though the end of the is fast approaching (September 22nd), it is still hot in most places so a V-neck will look hot (get it) with this look. Either shirt one or two will look great.”

THE SHOE:
Special Edition Burgundy Creative Reaction
“With this style of Recreations you can either wear your pants leg over the tongue or your pant leg inside the shoe. I prefer to tuck the pant leg into the tongue of the shoe, it will make the outfit even more dope!”

THE EXTRA:

UO Vest
“This nice gray vest will look awesome over the v-neck. The vest will help make the outfit look not so plain and boring.”

Silver Chain
This chain will help bring out the silver in the shoes.

Silver Bracelet
“And finally a nice bracelet, which will help to make your arms look not so lonely.”

Enjoy, hopefully this look will help the ladies pay extra close attention.

Justin Timberlake: The Designer, Re-introducing William Rast

After a brief hiatus Mr. Bringing Sexy Back has decided to bring back his line William Rast. Along with other celebrity designers Justin showed his line this week at New York’s Spring/Summer 2009 Fashion Week. I really like his line, it’s very “Justin-like” meaning that the line looks like the clothes that JT rocks on a daily. Which is more than I can say for some others; there’s nothing worse than celebrities who don’t rock their own brands… freakin’ posers! lol, j/k. Above all I admire that the clothing line has included both female and male pieces since it’s debut in 2006.
Justin Timberlake started the line with his best buddy Trace Ayala. The name “William Rast” is a combination of Timberlake’s and Ayala’s grandfather’s names. The clothing line is truly a rocker’s paradise, full off denim and pieces that truly emulates the style of a rockstar. According to a paragraph pulled from Nordstrom.com: the denim line infuses the soul of authentic Southern heritage with the energy of contemporary Hollywood. Discover tailored pieces that blend rock ‘n’ roll rebellion and modern sex appeal for a uniquely defined style.

And if you didn’t know, Mr.Timberlake launched his Re-introduction of the line with a series of mini movies that feature “William Rast“… starring Justin Timberlake as …??? As William Rast why of course! Check out his series of movies HERE
