A little midweek celebrity style snack, take a look at what a few of our favorite urban gents have been wearing…
Urban Gent Zac Efron running errands in Hollywood, wearing a navy cardigan, white henley, wayfarers, and black Vans.

at the ‘Kick Ass’ Premiere in London, England.

The 1950s were really all about conservatism. Tailored suits in shades of gray, navy, and brown were popular. A hat, pocket square, tie-clip, and cuff-links were as essential as having a belt– no man was complete without his accessories (or his cigarettes).
The style of 1960s is the style many men admire in modern times… slimmer fitting suits, fitted dress shirts, slim ties, and if you were in Hollywood, or let’s say a member of The Rat Pack a sharkskin suit was a regular in your wardrobe.
Sammy’s style was that of the times, with his own Sammy or hollywood touch like maybe an intentional loosened bow-tie and collar.

Like most new artist Bobby’s style isn’t quite set in stone, I’m sure he’s still dealing with contractual duties and wearing the threads that the sponsors and record label’s stylist provides. But within all of that he still manages to add his personal touch to most of the ensembles he sports.
It’s safe to say that when it comes to Bobby, there’s two dimensions, two personas, two __(fill in blank with an appropriate word)__: B.o.B and Bobby Ray… and yes they are the same person, but as made apparent by his 2nd mixtape “B.o.B vs Bobby Ray” they’re almost completely opposite, not only in sound, but in looks and overall style.
“B.o.B…. Uno is my numeral, they said that hip-hop was dead, hmph, I musta missed the funeral”. B.o.B doesn’t like to be categorized in a genre, but humbly accepts the fact that guys like him are bringing back hip-hop… making it respectable again, making it an art form, making it the feel good music it once was instead of the, well, ummm– crappiness it had become.
And with his hip-hop flavor, BoB brings the one day classic 2010-ish hip-hop style. An eye-catching graphic tee, sneakers, a cool jacket (if the season calls for it), trendy shades, and maybe an optional well thought-out tattoo or two, is all it takes to get his look down.
Fedoras, classic wayfarers, beaded alternative looking accessories (usually one necklace and one bracelet), button-ups, henleys, cardigans, basic tees worn under button-ups and cardigans, and whatever shoes fit the look– maybe classic allstars, maybe boots, maybe boat shoes, its whatever that particular moment in time calls for.
I slightly prefer Bobby Ray’s style at this point, only because his fedora collection is sick! And he manages to wear them without looking cheesy. He just looks like a really cool southern guy (georgia born and bred)… I can think of several artist that should take note, I would call names, buuuuut I won’t.

He actually looks great, and I love his silk dress scarf.

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:

shoe cost: $1200
in 2 colorways, white and black.
in a Leopard print high-top nonetheless (April 2009).
