Local Urban Gentleman: Kendrack Lewis

This weeks featured Local Urban Gentleman is Kendrack Lewis. The moment I opened Kendrack’s submission I was sold. His style is exactly what I envisioned when I initially created The Urban Gentleman– polished, preppy, fallaciously easy… classic yet modern. I implore you all to take a few notes from one of the best dressed educators in Texas :)

Presenting Kendrack Lewis

I love this look because it can be worn in so many ways.
Don’t like the bow-tie? You could take it off and undo a few buttons.
Not a fan of the lime green? Wear light blue.
This look can be re-arranged and re-styled into something for any guy.
I really like the clean white pants (perfect for spring/summer)
with the white loafers worn sockless.
And I feel all well dressed gentleman should own atleast
one classic navy blazer with gold buttons

Take note of the layering and the color choices.
On the left, he has a simple black to white color palette and uses the red bow-tie for a splash of color. On the right, a charming chocolate and pink color palette. In both he plays with textures- from tweed to velor and does a great job creating a modernly dapper look.

1. How would you describe your style? A classic approach to a contemporary frame! I like to let my style speak for itself because the first impression is the last impression.

2. How did you become so stylish? Where did it come from or who inspired it? I wanted to break away from the normal everyday mainstream trends and fads, so I began redefining what my attire should look like. I am inspired by those who know every occasion presents an opportunity to fashionably express themselves.

I adore this ensemble because it shows how easy it is to have great style.
He pairs a simple navy jacket and pants with a white v-neck and leather moccasins- creating a very nice comfortable easy-going look.

3. What advice would you give someone trying to find their personal style? Rock what makes you feel comfortable! If you don’t believe in it no one else will!

4. What’s the best clothing advice you ever received? Wear your size !!! Not two sizes bigger, clothes are designed to fit you not hang off you!!!

Kendrack is also immaculately groomed- its very important to keep your hair (including facial hair) cut, trimmed, or styled. Maintain your skin and complexion by keeping it moisturized.

  1. I gotta give it to him, texas is looking really clean.

  2. He’s the best you’ve had— as far as his style goes with the pictures. Steven had good things to say though.

  3. He looks very dapper

  4. He knows how to dress! I think his statement about clothes are meant to fit what other men need to hear. Not only is he a wonderful dresser, but he is also a friend and co-worker. Keep it up Ken!

  6. great style

  7. “fresh dressed like a million bucks” very good sir!

  8. I really enjoy the gentleman's interview and admire the knowledge of cut, color theory, and the pursuit of style! Well done!
