Futboller David Beckham leaving Dave’s Quality Meat with his wife and kids. He keeps it casual in a Stuntman Trucker hat, Ray-Ban gold aviator sunglasses, and Alife Chuck Naval sneakers ($125).

Photobucket
Jay-Z out and about wearing a G-Star slim “Taylor” Denim Jacket, ripped jeans, Nike RT1 kicks, and Oliver Peoples “Daddy B” sunglasses. Though Jay’s style game has stepped up as a whole, he still manages to have a few off days where his clothing is a bit sloppy. I’m all about loose-fitting/relaxed fit jeans when you’re in a mood to be extra comfortable (like traveling through an airport, which Jay was doing), but loose-fit jeans usually go best with low-top shoes like Converse or Vans– especially if you wear your jeans a size or two too big, like Jay sometimes does.

Usher and teen star/young urban gent Justin Beiber walk the red carpet. Usher wears a pair of Marc Jacobs 306 sunglasses, his favorite Ralph Lauren RRL jeans, and green Raf Simons multi-buckle sneakers. Justin keeps it cool in black and white, sporting a pair of Supra TK Society sneakers.

Pharrell Williams attends the 2010 Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix wearing a BBC distressed print Hickory jacket, white v-neck, BBC Digi-Camo 3/4 cargo shorts, and a pair of Chanel Denim sunglasses.

Pharrell in a BBC jacket and skully, his new staple eyewear: denim-covered Chanel shades, and I know you’re probably thinking, “What kind of shoes are those? He wears those everywhere nowadays”. Well, they’re Billionaire Boys Club “NOTHING” Boutique Sneakers (coming in July) even Bill Clinton wants a pair

Photobucket

Superstar Justin Timberlake keeps it everyday cool in his wayfarers, plaid shorts, and a pair of Air Jordan 2 Retro 25th Anniversary sneakers

Photobucket

Jay-Z at a Yankees vs. Tigers baseball game. He sports his signature NY hat, distressed, jeans, and a Rick Owens leather jacket.

Photobucket

David Beckham, wearing his usual Wrangler Blue Bell Destroyed Denim jacket. How does this guy manage to look like a model in every picture? He always keeps it denim focused in Wrangler… a little too much, hmmm, maybe he’s their unofficial spokesperson of sorts?

Photobucket

Zac in a black v-neck knit sweater, his signature skully, black Vans, and tortoise Rayban wayfarers. He carries a Louis Vuitton travel bag. (PS- All Urban Gentlemen must have atleast one pair of canvas shoes for the spring and summer.)

Mr. Louboutin: Pharrell Williams… upgrade from Vans to Louboutins.

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

Christian Louboutin studded Louis sneakers
in 2 colorways, white and black.

(chuckles) You gotta love that Pharrell stays true to his simple tee and jeans look. Here he’s wearing washed embroidered helmet jeans from his Billionaire Boys Club label ($385). The louis sneakers look good with his usual slight v-neck and jeans, but the freddy flats don’t quite coordinate, but he’s Pharrell so we’ll let it slide… this time.

Freddy Flat ‘Las Vegas’ shoes
(patent leather with spikes and signature red bottom).
One of the first, if not THE first official Christian Louboutin men’s shoe,
in a Leopard print high-top nonetheless (April 2009). 
So I guess it’s official guys, men’s shoes are expanding… and during a recession at that!

Celebrity Style Update: Kanye West, Zac Efron, Q-Tip, Adam Lambert, Jay-Z, Kid Cudi, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and more

A few recent photos of celebrity style from the past week, month, etc…
George Clooney in Toronta, Canada
Clooney always manages to portray such effortless easy style. If he’s not attending a black tie event you can count on him to leave 1 or 2 buttons open on his shirt to show a little chest hair, after all– it’s a man world.

Zac Efron at the David Letterman Show
in New York City sporting perfectly polished ankle boots.

When it comes to dress shoes most men opt for the lace-up oxford, some go for the slip-on loafer, but if you’re a truly stylish guy and in need of new dress shoes, look into purchasing a pair of dress boots. Robert Wayne carries some of the best styles at reasonable prices.

Everything he wears fits exactly how it is supposed to for his body type– the cut of the suit, the break in his pants, Mr. Efron is definitely leading in style these days.

Both Q-Tip and Kyser look fresh. Kyser keeps it classic with black Adidas shell-toes while Q-Tip sports a pair of Nike Dunks High Premium East Edition


Diddy’s 40th Birthday Party in New York
Tyrese Gibson, Sean “Diddy” Combs and rapper Baby


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


Nelly


Adam Lambert on CBS’s The Early Show

Believe it or not, I’m loving this look. I don’t think I’m a usual fan of Adam’s style, but the styling on this ensemble, atleast from the waist up, is pretty great. Obviously I’m not saying this look is for everyone, but if you’re going to do goth– do it like this. I think it’s the hair, the placement of the scarf, and the gloves that really bring it all together… hmm, I don’t even mind the metallic finger nail polish.

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


Question: Where art thou Yeezy?
Answer: In Paris!!!!

The paps finally found our beloved gent, in Paris, doing a little retail therapy at Cavalli and Marney. I’m so glad he’s laying low, chilling, and just generally getting his ish together. Let’s hope he comes back revitalized, humbled, and more creative than ever. And remember Ye’ no more turning hoes into housewives, lol.


Kanye West indulging in retail therapy

Ye’s in mourning… maybe that’s what the all black is about. Both he and Rihanna have been sporting ALOT of black over the past few months– and both of them have been through some pretty traumatic situations. Either way it goes the black looks good on them both, but I’m sure once they’re inwardly happy again we’ll start to see more color in their day to day ensembles. (he’s wearing Acne House VPatch SB shirt,  Martin Margiela regular painted pants, and Hermes crocodile hi-tops)


Brad Pitt at the San Sebastian Film Festival

Kid Cudi and Drake


Pharrell Williams at a Miami Art Basel event

I love how he ONLY rocks BBC jeans, which only makes sense. If you have a clothing line you should wear you own clothes, otherwise it will send a clear message that you’re not passionate about the line and you’re solely doing it for profit. (wearing black Christian Louboutin sneakers from their SS2010 collections)

Pharrell performing on the North American college arena tour. He’s sporting a Billionaire’s Boys Club heart and mind zip hoodie, BBC jeans, and classic New Balances.

I likee Christians’s scarf and Zac’s blazer
A heather grey blazer is a must for men and women
this year, and next, and just in general.

Que definitely has the best style in group Day 26,
he loves to rock the hoodie and leather jacket look.

Sooo, this is Pete Wentz

Yea, I didn’t recognize him either when I first saw the photo. I’m loving his new look, seriously, whoever is styling him- keep up the good work.


Pete Wentz
The profile is so sick… the jacket, the boots, the overall swag.


Day 26


Tristan Wilds


Columbus Short at Planet Hollywood promoting movie Armored

Now I hate to do this, because Columbus is a good-looking guy and he’s buddies with one of my close friends, but gentlemen this is a perfect example of how not to dress. Okok, let me back up, there are great components in his outfit– the pea coat, white slight v-neck tee, grey trousers, textured grey scarf, but the fit the FIT is sooo off and he looks sloppy.

Blast from the Past

… and speaking of Grammys, Maxwell received 6 nominations– very well deserved. What’s the deal with his shirt? Looks to be an upscale re-invention of the “tie-shirt”. Hmmm, it could just be fabric on the placket, but I have a feeling if he buttoned the shirt up it would look like a skinny tie.

I love his textured damask print jacket.

That was alot of celebrity style to take in in huh?

The one thing that they all had in common was color– everyone was wearing black or grey with a little blue here and there. But that’s mainly because its winter and blacks, greys, and navys are the most popular colors for wintery clothing.

So whose recent style do you like, dislike, sorta kinda like….

plus the song is relaxing, and chill
nice for a calm summer day.

One Photo, What Do You Think: Pharrell @ Serpentine Gallery Summer Party

Everyone’s being inspired by old country style these days and that includes BBC Man Pharrell Williams. I appreciate his ode to gentleman gear, buuuut I don’t think he quite pulled it off, like maybe Andre Benjamin would have. It just seems like he paired a random blazer, driving cap, and knee- high riding boots with his favorite jeans and white polo (two of his wardrobe staples). Fantastic individual pieces, but when paired my eyes move all other place… whoever dressed him probably thought the light blue piping on the khaki blazer would match the jeans and that the olive corduroy suede cap would match the sides of his riding boots… but I think a darker denim, and better jacket would have saved this ensemble… with all that said, he still looks quite dashing. And the boot go hard. What do you think?

Pharrell Williams Wears TOM FORD Glasses

Many people ask me this question (almost daily) and I always answer it on an individual basis, but just for the record- Pharrell Williams wears Tom Ford glasses ;-)
Just for kicks, here’s the Pharrell Williams “I’m a PC video”. I love this whole “I’m a PC thing” (even though I’m personally a Mac), when I first saw the whole commercial months ago I was moved. It’s a great marketing campaign, whoever thought of it definitely got paid.

Oh and here’s some more Tom Ford frames worn by the stylish and famous.





all frames between $260-$320 at go-optics.com
(also in the urban gentleman store)

Oh, and here’s the entire PC commercial, the one I was “moved by” :-)
