Throughout the fall/winter, BBC king Pharrell Williams has been seen sporting Christian Louboutin studded shoes instead of his usual comfy Vans. Known for their high-end stilettos with the signature red bottoms, often worn by the likes of Victoria Beckham and Rihanna, the folks at Louboutin are really upping the ante on men’s shoes. Kanye once proclaimed himself Louis Vuitton Don… is Pharrell the new Louboutin Don? Nah, that sounds too corny. Check out Pharrell Williams rocking not one, not two, but three different kicks from Christian Louboutin’s SS2010 shoe collection for men:
(lots more pictures after the jump)
shoe cost: $1200
in 2 colorways, white and black.
in a Leopard print high-top nonetheless (April 2009).

I may not care for his attitude, but Sean Combs is a mean dresser.
No one does cocktail attire quite like Diddy.

UPDATE: So after a few request, I found a similarly shaped jacket, it’s now available in our store check it out here.

That was alot of celebrity style to take in in huh?
So whose recent style do you like, dislike, sorta kinda like….
The results from the latest Urban Gent Poll are in… this was sort of a mini poll since it didn’t run for that long:
The Question: Whose Style Do You Like Best?
1st place goes to Kid Cudi, 2nd John Lengend, and 3rd Zac Efron.
Zac Efron at UK premiere of ‘Me and Orson Welles’, Nov 18th
I honestly thought Zac Efron would get 2nd, if not 1st, but he got 3rd. He’s been pretty consistent with his style for the past two years and he constantly updates his looks; sometimes its a big update while other times it’s subtle. Zac’s perfectly polished look from the beginning of 2009 was, well, perfect. And his messy, swept-over hair do from mid-2009 was oookay, not one of my favorites, but I appreciated the update and experimentation. His current look is pretty great as well. Hmmm, I guess when I think of Efron’s changing styles I think of his hair. But besides his hair his attire is always perfect… his jeans fit well, as do his button downs. He and his girlfriend always look flawless on the red carpet.
John Legend always look nice. His suits are usually custom-fitted, he wears trendy bow-ties, and just keeps himself well-groomed (hair, skin, clothing) like an Urban Gent should.
***Don’t forget to vote on the new poll… What’s Your Favorite Fall/Winter Trend? (located on the right side of the page)
The new 90210 sports a very casual ensemble… looks like something a prep school kid wear when they have casual day at school. He has alot of potential though, I could see him dressing like Chris Paul once he matures.
All black, simple, classic, casually clean. Everything fits well- the jeans, the tee, the jacket. His shades are really hot.
Jermaine Jackson and guest
A very nice, top-notch quality marching band jacket. Very appropriate for the tribute to MJ.
Dijmon Hounsou and Kimora Lee Simmons
cute couple, her baby weight is coming off nicely.
Superb grooming. He has the whole “I just got off of work from my 6 figure job” look going. You know how it is when some of your banker friends get off work: they have a really nice suit on, tie a tad loosened, and their attire looks very relaxed- since they’ve been mostly at a desk all. That’s the look Adam has going on, I like it.
This is okay, I saw a close-up of the prints on the suit and it’s not my favorite thing in the world, but it fits his style and taste.
All American Rejects
This is opposite of his usual look, but I think I like it with the mustache.
He looks like a dad from the late 50s.
He looks just about perfect, good job Chace.
I get what he’s doing, but the look would have been much better with loafers, and if he stood up straight.
Fall Out Boys
I wanna say this looks sloppy, buy I think it’s mainly the camera angle. But actually, his pants are too long, jacket sleeves a little long, shirt is too short for his body type, and I wish someone would style his hair and beard better because they always look messy (not in a good way).
The Ugly Truth was really good though.
This is a very nice look for our young urban gents.
The quality of all his clothes are superb- jacket, jeans, and t-shirt
I like Sean Paul, but his style is just off… its sort of stuck or something, he hasn’t allowed his style to evolve. Idk, but he needs some help.
Another almost perfect look
My favorites are probably Taylor Lautner and Swiss Beatz…
Good Afternoon Gentlemen,
color scheme as her most of the time.
It’s like he’s saying “I’m cool and I know it and you know it too”
but he’s just not saying it… and I really like the colorful Oakley shades on the little guy.
aunt singer Beyonce, and grandma designer Tina as they visit the
Andy Warhol exhibition at the Grand Palais in Paris.
Solange has dressed young Daniel in a more high-fashion type ensemble…
very appropriate for Paris.
yet again, another rockstar kid.
Young Kingston giving a very pregnant Gwen Stefani a back rub in London Park. All I can say is “niiiiiice.” This little guy gets alot of points for this act, every woman wants a son this thoughtful. I really like his jeans, the big cuffs complete the casual look.
Kingston laying out at Long Beach in California with mum Gwen Stefani
and 8 month old little bro Zuma. You can’t really see it in this picture, but they all have on a type of seer-sucker denim… it’s nice when parents and kids very subtly match.
These are just two of my favorite young gents. PLEASE leave any comments and suggestions for posts! Whether you have your own little gentleman (like me) or need to buy your nephews, cousins, or friend’s kids a gift- I’ll be more than happy to answer any questions and give my opinion and suggestions.
Happy Friday Guys, Ciao!
Check out a few pictures of the two (and other GI Joe crew members) at interviews and premieres:
And his facial hair- low and perfectly trimmed.
(being well-groomed is SO important guys)
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.
on another note- I’m really diggin’ the boots, they sort of remind
me of the Jeffery Campbell tattered “war-boots” from last winter.
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:
So this is an example of successfully “doing you”- not everyone
can pull this suit off though.
What do you guys think of their style?
Has anyone seen the whole movie? How is it?
