Music Break: A Shakur Summer, Get the Look

It's Tuesday, so why not play a little Tupac as we work. I love music, you love music, we all love music…  After having Marley Monday yesterday, I figured why not share our current listenings with you every once in awhile. Sometimes a song can dictate my post, a single verse can be the difference of why I choose a pair of Italian made moccasin -vs- a pair of Brazilian made huaraches to match a particular look.

Behind the Scenes

USA Network x The Urban Gent: Men of USA Giveaway

I've been meaning to do a stylish men of TV posting for well over a year now, but I never got around to it. One of the main shows I planned to highlight was of course no other than USA's White Collar– that Neal Caffrey is one smooth mutha–"shut yo' mouth", lol. (that was Shaft movie reference for those who didn't catch it). But really, his authentic love of art, culture, and fine-dressing makes him an easy favorite when it comes to stylish characters on TV.  So, when the USA Network, said they had a giveaway in mind for The Urban Gentleman, it was an easy "yesss".

Each day this week, starting TODAY we'll be giving away FanPacks representing the Men of USA,  from 6 of USA Network's top shows: White Collar, Necessary Roughness, Covert Affairs, Royal Pains, Burn Notice, and Suits. And we'll have style profiles of some of the most notable Men of USA… check for that throughout the week.

HOW TO ENTER: Details below (at the bottom of the posting). Be sure to follow us on Twitter, fan on Facebook, and sign-up for T.U.G Mail. As always the more ways you enter the higher your chances of winning (winners are chosen via random.org).

For those who aren't familiar here's a brief rundown of each show, as well as each respective FanPack contents:

­White Collar, Tuesdays at 9PM. Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer) is a debonair bad boy with classic movie-star style (think Carey Grant meets Al Capone). And with every-man FBI agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) on his side, WHITE COLLAR is the definition of slick and timeless New York. Get more WHITE COLLAR, here.

White Collar Prize Pack: Custom Nylon Bag ($10) Season 1 & 2 DVDs ($100) Jack Spade Wallet ($80) USA Summer T-Shirt ($15) USA 10 City Summer Guide. ($205 value)


Old Baseball Footage: Hank Aaron, Lou Gehrig, Willie Mays, & Other Baseball Legends.

All this talk of baseball caps and history lead me to look at old footage of baseball games. I found a couple worthy to re-post.


Hank Aaron Wins the Pennant for the Braves:


Old Lost Footage (Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth, Roberto Clemente, etc):


Willie Mays, "The Most Famous Baseball Catch"

It is said that Willie Mays is the greatest baseball player in history, and I guess it has constantly been confirmed by other legendary baseball players. Mickey Mantle once stated that Mays was the best baseball player to have ever lived, and consistently maintained that Mays had the better career. Even players who didn't believe in perfection or being the best felt Willie was #1,"There has never been a perfect ballplayer. [But] Willie Mays came the closest to perfection."Joe Dimaggio. Read more about the great Willie Mays on his website, here.

Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth
