Just in case some of you guys aren’t familiar with the styles, I’ve posted a few designer sneakers below.
Adam Kimmel. frumpy see as frumpy do. Even though it seems as though many have moved passed baggy and saggy and turned to more clean lines and straight silhouettes, Kimmel like other designers this season, are showing otherwise. Here again we have a rising of the over-sized and bulky… do we leave it or do we love it…. who knows. But he certainly takes the worker look to a real level, almost giving each look its own personal story- and for that reason I am a fan… 7.8/10.
PS- I live for the star and striped sweater. People who dress like this in real life are always so cool.
Alessandro Dell Acqua. flesh tones, cuffs, bigger tops smaller bottoms, structured shoulders… in the water we all must go (high-watered pants)… Though Dell'Acqua's new catch phrase is "bourgeois revolution", I for some reason, get a feeling of "modern goth with alot of class"- clean yet emotional in subtle ways- the elongated sleeves, cuffed pants, flesh tones… immaculate pieces for the most part… 7.9/10.
Alexander McQueen. drama is his middle name- always has been always will be. I must say aside from the scary faces McQueen unsurprisingly brings it once more- his array of designs, patterns, textures, shapes, can easily be seen in the wardrobe of any well dressed man. When viewing his collection, like always, you have to look at the individual pieces. And the pieces are very well executed. Though I feel like these models are going to jump off the screen and get me- I do like the overall collection… but I didn't however like the order of the show, I would have changed it a bit… 8.9/10… The man is a brute.
Comme Des Garcons.
Fall/Winter 2009/2010 Menswear Collections.
A mini-history lesson: The polo shirt was first known as a tennis shirt. It was designed by 7-time French Grand Slam tennis pro, Rene Lacoste. He designed it because he needed a more comfortable shirt to play tennis in. He first wore it in the 1926 US Open Championship and in 1927 he added the crocodile emblem. Polo players began to heavily wear the shirt in the 1930s (after Lacoste began to mass produce them)- hence the nickname "polo shirt". In 1972 Ralph Lauren included the "polo shirt" as a prominent part of his line called Polo- to further boost popularity. Many English speaking westerners started calling the tennis shirt a "polo shirt" on a widespread level because of Ralph Lauren immense popularity . . . see, you learn something new everyday okay, back to the list. . .
This is the polo that everyone thinks of when they say the word polo. The fit of these are the best and now Ralph Lauren allows you to "create-your-own" polo.
Retail price: $79.50 – $125.00

polo ever made. This polo automatically preps up any look,
making it a must in your wardrobe.

Express- the Modern polo
Chaps- the Bargain polo
This is somewhat of the "starter" polo, meaning that it's the average guys first polo if they didn't grow up wearing it. It's a good quality brand that can be found in most stores.
Retail price: $39.50
Average Sale Price: $19.99 or less
Sean John – the Comfort polo
What can I say, Diddy is a great designer- even if he's crazy,
lol. His polos fit perfectly and they make most guys look fly.
Plus, it's always good to support black designers.
Retail price: $52.00+
Average Sale Price: $30.00
Rocawear – the Hip-Hop polo
Again another rap-star delivers (Jay-Z & Damon Dash). Rocawear has a great line of men's clothing. One of its best feature is the R logo- which always matches the shirts lining. Rocawear polos are really cool, they remind me of Miami for some reason.
Retail price: $58.00
Average Sale price: $35.00
Burberry- the Gentleman polo
With Burberry you can do no wrong. The polos are just about as classic as Ralph Lauren and Lacoste. The best thing about Burberry polos is the high-quality material and rich colors.
I've recognized that most rich and wealthy executives almost exclusively wear Burberry polos.
Retail price: $95- $160+
Average sale price: $75.00
Penguin- the Vintage polo
This is everyone's favorite extra polo. Penguin is a brand that not everyone knows about, but those who do swear by it. I've met guys who exclusively wear Penguin polos. They're meant for young stylish guys who enjoy vintage looking polos.
Retail price: $59.00
Average sale price: $39.00
Coogi- the Artistic polo
When I think about AE, I think about private school kids-
which is cool. American Eagle is a really good all-american
brand, with great polos for good prices. You can also
customize your polo, I made a pink one w/ a navy eagle
on it (showed above).
Retail price: 24.50-34.50
Average sale price: $14.50
Guilty Brotherhood- the Lupe polo
This has to be the most googled polo in the world right now. Ever since Lupe spit his line about liking ". . .Guilty Brotherhood Polos" on Gold Watch everybody has been trying to get there hands on one of these. Unfortunately it's not that easy to cop via the internet.
