Shopping: Last year it was all about "if i had to shop for you online today, this is what i'd buy", this time it's more like, "this stuff is pretty darn fly, and if you can add it to your wardrobe please do."


Converse: Men's shoes.
All-Star Slim Garment Dye, were $70 on sale for $49.99. These are pretty sweet. I can see them teamed up with a pair of slim fit jeans (for some reason G-stars come to mind), a well fitting button-up– buttoned all the way up (sleeves rolled), and classic shades.

Toms: Brown Waxed Twill Men's Cordones, $69. For me it's like this: if I can look amazing and help out the less fortunate at the same time– why the hell not, lol. The purpose of these Toms are just to add a little spice to the wardrobe, like when you're headed to the college football games, instead of wearing sneakers or deck shoes– you throw these on. Or if you're going out on a Saturday night, maybe choose these instead of the brown loafers you would typically wear.


Puma Tekkies. Here's a great buy, these shoes are on sale for $27. You can sport them through the rest of the summer, part of the fall, then bring them back out next spring. And let's face it, its tough finding men's shoes under $30, sooo, yeaa sizes are scarce but they have these in off-white/khaki, red, brown, and navy… I'm partial to the off-white/khaki.


Red Wing Wabasha Chukka, $220. Sometimes you have to take a chance on a pair of shoes that you can go either way with. You know the kind of shoes that you look at, then squint your eyes a little, and you make that little noise "aaaeennn…" or maybe it's a high-pitched "hmmmm" (lol, I don't know how to "write" the noise), basically you think, "these shoes are sorta subtly badass, but they're also a little risky." These are those type of shoes to me– these will either go fantastically right or they'll be aiight, depending on who wears them. For me these are a clean combination of a 6 inch traditional wheat colored timb boot -and- your average pair of chukkas, with small moccasin undertones and a hint of deck/boat.


Marc Jacobs College Ankle Boot, $568. I don't know why, but these really do it for me. They're like a relaxed elegant military boot. I usually wouldn't go this shiny, but theses work. Hmmm…. oh, okay, I know what it is, these are like a "calmer" version of Dr.Martens. Either way, I like them, these would make for a great 2nd or 3rd winter boot.

Adidas Y-3 by Yohji Yamamoto Neo Tech, $364. I see these shoes and I think, "Just stunt on 'em". Seriously though, sometimes you just have to go hard or go home and these shoes bring it. Yeah, it's alot going on in some sense, but they're black and they'll look good winter after winter, summer after summer, atleast for the next 3 years (especially since trends are just leading right back into the 90s… I'm waiting for LA Gears to return on the scene, lol…).

I can't send y'all back to school without a fresh pair of white kicks (remember when you haaaaad to get a fresh pair of white shoes before every school year? I do. Some years I opted for Adidas, others Fila's, as I got older Hi-Top Pumas made the top of the list, but I particularly remember choosing K-swiss a couple of times when I had to wear uniforms to school. So since everyone around here is prepped out anyway, I think a classic pair of K-swiss would be a good move for someone looking for a simple pair of white shoes. They'll look good with navy, khaki, plaid, stripes, etc. (Don't forget to use the 15% off discount code BTSSHOES10). If, the k-swiss aren't for you, then you can choose one of the many pair of white shoes above (so maybe common projects, creative recs, supras, nikes, just take your pick).

Nike Air Max 1 Omega Pack, $148.06. Traditional Nike trainers is how I see these. For some these will be a comfortable weekly school shoe for others a fresh weekend shoe, either way they're a safe bet (and they're limited edition).

If If Had to Shop for You, Online, Today… this is what I’d buy: Urban Gentleman BACK TO SCHOOL SHOPPING GUIDE PT.1

Everyday for the past month I’ve received several emails from urban gents around the world seeking advice on “back to school clothing”. Some of you are going back to high school, others college, and some may just be returning from a summer long vacation and want to purchase a few things for casual days at work.
Let’s be upfront about things- this recession is a b*tch… especially for us Americans. Now my readers from Europe, Asia, Australia, etc you guys probably have a bit more money to spend. So I’m going to mainly shop according to the current budgets of many people who reside in the U S of A, but of course I’ll also shop for the readers who are banked and happily unaffected by the recession (sitting pretty on those trust funds).
Okay, lets get started.

I will choose items and place them in 3 or so self-explanatory categories: pocket-friendly (less expensive), i gotta trust fund (more expensive), and my favorite (items that I just personally like in addition to the other choices) or etc.

So here’s your very basic back to school check list:

2 pair of jeans
4 or more graphic tees (or a polo/tee combo)
2 pair of shoes
1 outwear piece (cardigan, jacket)
accessory of choice

The trends you want to keep in mind are the same, but basically at the end of the day you should “do you” just in a really polished way.

First Up: Jeans.
(perfect sexy jeans)

POCKET FRIENDLY: Express. Great fit, nice quality, and you really can’t beat their buy one get one half off sale. A pair of their jeans ranges from $50-$90… meaning on the light side you could get 2 pair for $75 (that’s $37.50 each) or at max $135 for 2 pair…. basically its a great deal that I wouldn’t pass up. Plus its tax free weekend for some of you,

I GOTTA TRUST-FUND: Levis. Oh no, not just any Levi’s the oldest pair of Levi’s 501 jeans known- Vintage XX First Blue Rigid Jeans. At 407 bucks and 1 cent, these jeans are probably the purest ode to the classics you can find. If you have the cash, by all means spend away because if it wasn’t for Levis we wouldn’t have the jeans we know and love today.

MY FAVORITE: Nom De Guerre Classic Fit. These jeans are Super sexy, seriously I might melt if I see a guy in these- okay maybe that’s a bit extreme, but you get my drift. They look to be the perfect fit, they’re un-embellished, and they’re dark- so basically they’re a classic pair of designer jeans that are on sale from $250 to $148, niiiice…. and for you lucky brits that’s only £90.

ETC: If you want to choose from a huge variety of denim- ever color, every style, all the fits you can imagine visit Karmaloop.

(bookbag tee from Karmaloop)

POCKET FRIENDLY: As always Dr.Jays, KarmaLoop, and EastWest Worldwide reign supreme on selection. If you want, let’s say, a more subtle selection choice, opt for Express or Armani.

I GOTTA TRUST FUND: To be honest as far as tees, no one entirely fits this category, but if I had to choose a store I’d say Oki-Ni. But they actually do have a quite a few pocket-friendly choices as well. I like their t-shirts because they’re extremely different and I doubt you’ll see someone else rocking it, so if originality is what you seek- choose Oki-Ni.


FRED PERRY. enough said…. Okay, well maybe not, but everyone knows Fred Perry has some of the best polos. You can even catch guys wearing them on the red carpet.

POCKET FRIENDLY: If you want a larger selection of polos with a variety of colors, again I’d opt for Express… because their deals are just really on-point at the moment- 40% off…. only 20 bucks each.

ETC: Diddy actually has a nice selection of polos for Sean John, alot of great neutrals.


For this category, there’s just too many to name. So I’ll give you 3 of my favorite shoes now then I’ll come back later (after I take a nap, I’ve been up for almost 24 hours, crazy I know) and add on a bunch more.

– Converse, well they… hmmm, how can I put this- they’re just really awesome. They have a new make your own shoe feature, and it only cost $62… that’s not much for a custom designed shoe, actually that’s VERY inexpensive.

– There’s nothing, like a nice fresh pair of Vans to start the school year with.

– Okay, maybe I fibbed, maybe there’s nothing like a new pair of Creative Recreations to start the school year with. And ummm, the selection of styles and colors at is vast.

Accessories, Outerwear, and more shoes in Part II

Part II- customized shoes for school.
