G.I Joes Have Style: Marlon Wayans & Channing Tatum

2 weekends ago I had a chance to see G.I Joe… and the beginning was good, I just wasn’t able to finish it. Not because it wasn’t a great film, but because we went to the drive-in theater and had already watched two movies before then, so we fell asleep towards the beginning-middle of G.I Joe. Nevertheless, I enjoyed what I saw mainly because the stars were just so hot…Marlon Wayans has always been cute to me and he added on some muscle for the role (niiiice) and Channing Tatum, well, (sigh) he’s probably one of the hottest guys on earth- yeah I said it- he’s like the equivalent of… hmmm of a Megan Fox to guys but just hotter. Geeez, I’ve had a crush on him since… I guess since Coach Carter, buuuut I digress, I know you guys don’t want hear all that.

Check out a few pictures of the two (and other GI Joe crew members) at interviews and premieres:

I love Channing’s hair here- edgy yet simple and stylish.
And his facial hair- low and perfectly trimmed.
(being well-groomed is SO important guys)

For some reason the first thing that sticks out
in this picture to me is his nails. Weird?
Yeah perhaps, but that’s one of the first things I notice on a guy.
Marlon’s nails are JUST how Urban Gentleman
should have theirs- clean and short.

Channing Tatum, Sienna Miller, and Marlon Wayans

These guys are HILARIOUS
(ps- you KNOW this was Marlon’s idea, darn 7th grade poses)

on another note- I’m really diggin’ the boots, they sort of remind
me of the Jeffery Campbell tattered “war-boots” from last winter.

Lol, I love it.

Gentleman, take a good look at Marlon’s and Channing’s jeans
are you looking? Okay, great.
Now THAT is how your jeans should fit.
It still saddens me when I see guys wearing pants 8x too big
and its getting to be QUITE disturbing to see guys in jeans 8x too small
I really need for you guys to pull a Goldilocks and wear the pair
that fits just right :-)

More of Marlon’s and Channing’s Style:

I’m not too keen on the suit choice, but I think it looks good on Marlon
So this is an example of successfully “doing you”- not everyone
can pull this suit off though.

I love her dress and I love his jacket

Both of the guys are sporting nice simple casual looks.

What do you guys think of their style?
Has anyone seen the whole movie? How is it?

Become Your Own Designer, Customize Your Shoes: Nike, Reebok, Converse, Puma

Yesterday I found myself spending hours designing shoes. One of my friends was in need of a few new kicks and instead of going to the store to try on a variety of shoes, he decided to get creative and make his own. He already knew about Nike ID and Reebok, I hipped him on Converse, and we both re-discovered Puma. Ahhh, Puma- so refreshing- I LOVE Pumas, especially high-top ones. All the best dressed guys I’ve ever known wear high-top pumas. Well, not all of them, but a few of my favorite well-dressed guys exclusively wear Pumas as their casual sneaker of choice. Anyway, he and I spent hours changing colors, shoe styles, textures… in the end he bought one custom made pair from each brand. And I must say, though time consuming, it was fun. Here’s a random colorful selection of a few of the shoes I made:






Though I like all 4, I must say that my favorite has to be Puma’s Mongolian Shoe Barbeque “Spice Needed”… They offer the best textures and color combos, and you’ll get the most elegantly stylish shoe from them. To be honest it would be very hard to not make a rockin sockin shoe with Puma’s Mongolian BBQ, buuuut I am sorta biased. Converse came in a close second, it’s a classic shoe that you want in every color anyway, so being able to customize every part of the shoe- down to the thread is pretty sweet. These are all great options for someone who is searching for a certain color or has a hard time finding shoes that match a ‘certain look’ they had in mind. It’s also a great gift to give a sneakerhead or a person who likes exclusive apparel.

NIKE ID : Best Shoe Variety
YOUR REEBOK : Best Background
(I like the view with the person wearing the shoes)
MAKE YOUR OWN CONVERSE : Most Classic
PUMA’S MONGOLIAN SHOE BBQ: Most Stylish, Best Textures
If you’re looking to make a specific type of shoe, maybe for a sport or a particular event, then Nike is the obvious choice. If you’re looking for a classic shoe with a twist- Converse is #1. If you want a head turner, show-stopper type shoe… c’mon Puma (it seriously doesn’t get any better). And if you’re looking for a small mixture of all of the above then choose Reebok.

When you get the time go check out their sites… 4 great brands with endless creative possibilities. I’d love to get the opinions of people who have gotten customized shoes from one of the brands- how did you like them? Which brand is your favorite?
