It's Friday so we figured let's have a bit more fun with the giveaway. So provided by Trucker Deluxe and Buckyballs we have an array of items for 6 lucky winners.

Looks like this young urban gent from our last post has been identified as 4 1/2 year old Ethyn. It took less than 24 hours, if that, after posting, for his mom to email us claiming her young fly son. She was told by friends and wanted us to know who he was… news travels soooo fast these days! His mother, Courtney, is a lover of hip-hop and has always wanted her kid to have alot of shoes… "Growing up I always wanted my kids to have as many shoes as possible so the majority of his shoes are picked out by his dad & I. He still doesn't really care much about his shoes or clothes YET, but out of all of his shoes his ultimate faves are the Jordan 5's."
Pretty sweet, Ethyn has about 30 pairs of shoes…. and he's 4 1/2 and still growing… I wonder how many shoes he'll have when he's 18?
Black & White LA Gear KAJ. You can cop a pair here.
These are from LA Gear's 1990s "Unstoppable" line.
Weeks and weeks ago, Kanayo and I took a lunch break to hit up our local Steak & Shake. We both had a sweet-tooth and, well, you can't help but love Steak & Shake's Happy Hour: Snicker, Butterfinger, and Butter Pecan milkshakes (just to name a few) for 1/2 off — it's a pretty sweet deal. Then we figured… might as well get a steakburger too. We definitely don't encourage fast food (except for maybe Chick-fil-a), but every now and then won't hurt too bad.

90s Steez: Vintage Disney denim jacket, Bape graphic tee,
Diesel jeans, Unstoppable LA Gears.
During our back to school article, seeing the Y-3 Yohji Yamamato Neo Tech sneakers gave me flashbacks of LA Gears. So Sportie LA was nice enough to send us a couple pairs. LA gear's are definitely stand-outs due to its size, so if you like people to really notice your kicks… get a pair of Unstoppables.

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.
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.

Zebra ‘Louis’ and Boot.
If you’re gonna give us Men’s Louboutin This is what we’re looking for, some down right elegantly unique luxury shoes.
All the gentlemen wardrobe/styling books tend to avoid the topic of men in sandals. And when a book does mention it, it’s either sternly against it or indirectly snubs it. A friend told me that he once read a rule in Esquire Mag that stated, “You lose 61 percent of your respect for a man when you can see his toes through his shoes.” (or something like that).
With that said, plenty of well dressed gentlemen opt for a luxe pair of sandals when in sunny Rio de Janeiro, vacationing in Jamaica, or simply strolling through the cobblestone streets of Sicily. So, now you may ask– what’s the final verdict, can me wear sandals or not?
But whether traditional or nontraditional, flip-flops on the beach are just common sense. And sandals are just apart of life for the Urban Gents from island countries.
Disclaimer: If you are choosing to wear sandals, then please get a pedicure. There’s nothing worse than a man wearing sandals with unkempt feet. Make sure your toenails are cut and feet are moisturized, for more help go here.
