Del Toro Shoes: Customize Your Velvet Slippers

 |  Uncategorized  |  3 Comments
Velvet slippers have successfully made their way from cigar rooms to the cobblestone streets and cement sidewalks of stylish cities. When we first discussed the transitioning formal to casual velvet slipper the selection for the shoe was relatively slim. Now companies like Del Toro are not only offering a wider selection, but are allowing you to customize them– with your university logo, fraternity symbol, name, or anything else that catches your fancy. Check out Del Toro: http://www.buydeltoro.com/.

Choose from a classic velvet black, brown, navy, or green.

Gentlemen, don’t forget to read last year’s Valentine’s Day article in which several women gave their version of the ideal Valentine’s Day scenario. Here’s a snippet…

“Teddy bears and balloons ended after pre-k. I had intellectual needs that a poorly-stitched bear and a ball of helium couldn’t satisfy… Needless to say, I like jewelry, getaways, panties, strawberry shortcake from Cake Love! But most of all, I love a gift that captures a part of our connection to each other and to God. No matter what the gift is, it needs to have some relevance to our relationship and show that somebody’s been paying attention.”

Men’s Red Carpet Fashion: 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, Kid Cudi, Jonas Brothers, Travis Barker, Trey Songz, Jay-Z, and more Celebrities.

The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards held at the Staples Center on January 31, 2010 in Los Angeles, California.
For the most part the guys looked good, everyone kept with their usual look or style. I just hate that once again the show proved that receiving a Grammy doesn’t mean what it used to, the people who deserve it never seem to win (ie. Black Eyed Peas should have won Album of the Year).
Check out our collection of celebrities at the 2010 Grammy Awards, on the red carpet, at the show, and after:
Trey Songz
keep reading to see LOTs more pictures and The Best Dressed

One of Chi-town’s finest, singer Common
Common, fresh as usual
 
The Jonas Brothers, always seem to be the most elegantly dressed at award shows
Update: Someone mentioned today that they thought their pants were too long– and yes they are if you want a more classic fit and break. Joe’s pants are decent
Jonas Brothers: Nick wore a Gucci suit with David Yurman jewelry. Joe wore a suit by Dolce and Gabbana, a ring by David Yurman, and watch by IWC. Kevin wore a Lanvin suit with David Yurman jewelry.
Busta Rhymes utilizes a couple of trends in his look:
velvet, velvet bow-ties, and marching band jacket.
Grey’s Anatomy actor, Jesse Williams
Singer Maxwell 
His suits always have the best fit

Comedians Akiva Schaffer and Andy Samberg of The Lonely Island
Linkin Park 
Wacky musical group LMFAO 
 
Musician, Producer David Guetta and wife Cathy Guetta
David is wearing D&G’s signature marching band jacket 
 
 
Musiq Soulchild, though shiny,
he actually looks quote dapper in his purple and gold
John Legend
Somehow the mesh shirt works with his leather tie and steel gray suit.
Kid Cudi
He keeps it simple and clean, but could have tailored the jacket much better. Idk, I think Cudi’s getting too comfortable with the suit and opened button shirt look. I’d like to see him in a perfectly tailored suit and tie.

Kid Cudi sporting the same “secret society” ring as Kanye West and Jay-Z

Ricky Martin wearing Dolce and Gabbana

Actor Simon Barker sporting Oliver Peoples.

Adam Lambert


Travis Barker and his son Landon
I love it, I just wish Trav would have chosen different shoes

T-Pain less blinged than usual– which is a good thing

Akon

Akon showing a little love and support by wearing a  Lady Gaga shirt

Mario Lopez
Sean Paul
Mike “The Situation” and Nicole “Snooki” from Jersey Shore
(I had to post this because that show is hilarious).
Ne-Yo in a black suit, dress shawl, white skinny tie, and his  signature fedora,
  the gray flower on his lapel adds a nice touch, but was unnecessary
 Usher
Usher displays the classic mixture of prints that perfectly compliment his 3-piece cotton suit. He wears Tom Ford up top and finishes the look with distressed wing-tips (as seen below).

A khakish-grey suit and vest, with white piping and black buttons that coordinate with his shirt, tie, and pocket square. The more I think about it, the more I realize that when you dissect alot of Usher’s wardrobe choices over the past few years it’s easy to see that he’s actually one of the best dressed men in Hollywood. He and his stylist really pay attention to the details– from the socks to the pocket square. He truly dresses like a southern gentleman.
Lil Wayne kicks it back stage.
Rapper Eminem performing on stage
Drake
Lil Wayne
Singer Katy Perry and comedian Russell Brand
Rapper Mos Def backstage, displaying the varsity trend
Rihanna and Jay-Z
Jay looks great in classic black and white, with a small flower on his lapel. I love a subtle black on black pinstripe silk suit– flawlessness.
Green Day members Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tre Cool pose backstage with their award for best rock album for 21st Century Breakdown

The guys of the Black Eyed Peas with their usual avant-garde style.
Musicians Will. i.am, Taboo and Apl.de.ap

Best Dressed from the 2010 Grammy Awards:
Trey Songz, Maxwell, Usher, Jay-Z were immaculately styled.
Jonas Brothers- are always the best dressed group/crew.

Urban Gentleman favorite wardrobe pieces:  David Guettas painted boots, Mos Def’s simple baseball varsity jacket, and Usher’s distressed wing-tips.
