Throwback to our MadMan x Banana Republic x The Urban Gentleman Feature.
Socks socks socks– whether striped or native-printed they're the latest essential statement making accessory for men. Stance and Nigel Knox loaded us up on socks, so in a late winter shoot we paired them with a few new pairs of Toms, stylish threads from Onassis, and a few other pieces.
"playing chinese checkers"; vintage Gant plaid button-up; selvedge Levis: Nigel Knox skull socks; Toms desert botas; LRG belt, Nixon watch
A few years ago it was all about skull scarves, last year and the year before skull velvet slippers, this year you gotta have atleast one pair of skull socks.
LRG crewneck sweater; Meltin' Pot denim; Stance camouflage socks; suede Toms shoes
vintage Atlanta snapback; Onassis chambray jacket shirt; Onassis harem pants; UGG sneakers; LRG scarf
Onassis has created a perfect pair of modern harem pants, not too over-exaggerated and Hammer-like, but just enough dimension in the shape to a second-look. (You can't see it in the pic, but the crotch of the pants does sag a bit, which of course adds to the authenticity of it being a pair of harems)

Parks & Recreation: Snapback & Tees (Summer Edition).
(behind-the-scenes video of Parks & Recreation: Summertime Style)
Lately we've been so caught up in button-downs, selvedge denim, shawl collar cardigans, and double-breasted blazers that we've forgotten about the relaxed easiness of a simple t-shirt and shorts. So we pulled out the snapbacks, fresh tees, a variety of shorts, and matching accessories to help get you through what seems to be the hottest days of summertime. Also, introducing, Ben Swann #TeamTUG.
An afternoon at the park.
10:37AM// Eat breakfast.
11:15AM// Pack your bag for a good ole time at the park (yo-yo, check, frisbee, check, a ton of games to have old-fashion fun, check…).
11:45AM// Always say "hi" to the neighbors or passersby, wave or casually throw up deuces (aka peace sign).
11:51AM// Look both ways before crossing the street.
12:03PM// Keep cool and be nostalgic– buy a popsicle from the ice cream man.
12:19PM// Sit on a bench (in the shade of course), people watch, and ponder upon life.
12:43PM// Play frisbee with a friend. (or any other park-friendly sport to your liking)
1:42PM// Take a breather and relax before heading home, or to your next destination.

Christian Louboutin Tasselissimo Suede Shoes, $1,450. In well-known over indulgent Christian Louboutin style, these tasseled loafers have been taken to the max… and then some. At very first glance, these lingered as off-putting, but then a few more seconds passed and I envisioned these being paired with a well tailored navy suit, worn sockless (down a cobblestone street in Italy, lol).
Christian Louboutin Louis Python Crystal Sneakers, $1,495. Simple all black python snakeskin exotic sneakers, with his signature Louboutin red bottoms. I can easily see these on the red carpet– maybe on Usher, Pharrell?
I must say, Louboutin is making the best crossover from women's shoes to men's, while some of his designs may be a bit ornate for some they definitely stand out as bona fide statement pieces. See More Photos Below, —> CONTINUE READING MORE >>>
