Got Music? Well, let's talk….
TUG Family — if you're a musician (singer, rapper, guitarist, etc) basically if you have music, a band, or friends with music (all genres) that you wouldn't mind being featured in Urban Gent videos please submit to email@example.com.
MUSIC TYPES: We're looking for ALL types of music but for immediate use bands/music favoring/sounding similar to Cee-Lo Green, Two Door Cinema Club, Outkast, Mumford & Sons, Skrillex, Diplo, Nico & Vinz, Future, James Brown, Bob Marley, Iyanya, Kendrick Lamar, Lupe Fiasco, Post Malone, Drake, Vampire Weekend, general 60s/70s vibes, and general Atlanta vibes.
For the past week, I've been jamming to the tunes of fellow yardie – Proteje. And I must say it's been quite refreshing. We all love Bob Marley, but I had been wondering when another artist would come along and offer a modern alternative. I did a little digging and learned that, "there's an exciting resurgence of conscious, organic music in Jamaica" and artist like Protoje are leading the pack. It's a Reggae Revival. Stay Tuned for our Protoje interview.
ROUND / CIRCLE FRAMES
If you have't already you gotta get a pair of round frame sunglasses. They're going to be important for the next several seasons, so you might as well get a pair a now. Maybe you've been thinking about it, but have decided to hold on to your aviator or wayfarer styles. I dig that, but round frames gives most looks a smart stylishness… add atleast one pair. Check out our selections below ranging from $18 – $815 (a pair for all budgets):
It's almost sweater weather, so that got my thinking about one of my favorite sweaters (above). Initially featured back in 2011… since then a couple of designers have made some scenic sweaters, but few, if any, as great as this.
It's starting to get a little chilly out there, so our wardrobes are undergoing slight modifications. One item that luckily doesn't have to be packed away from season to season are sunglasses… shades… sunnies – whatever they call them in your part of the world. Browse a few of our top pics below, as you listen to "Fell in the SUn" by Big Grams.
