Derrick Favors EXCLUSIVE: Fashion, Comic Books, and Basketball. (NBA Utah Jazz Power Forward)

 
It’s 10AM in Cabbagetown, USA. A creative artsy neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia. We’re in the gorgeous, historic, magical home of the town’s unofficial mayor, prepping for the shoot and listening to various tunes. Tink's “Million” repeats a dozen times at one point before we take notice… it's a good song. Not too long after the hour in walks Utah Jazz forward, Derrick Favors. Fresh from a weekend full of birthday festivities, community outreach, and an extended appearance at a car and bike show. This Atlanta-born giant is as cool and calm as they come.
 
"Indestructible": Derrick shows off his levitation powers.
 
GET THE LOOK: Alexander Wang lightweight sweater; Zanerobe joggers; custom Creative Recreation; MCM book bag; Meister watch // Cindy Samoht: I went for a stylish stealth look here, all black, with a little pop in color for socks and accessories
 
The Urban Gent team came to learn that Derrick airs more on the modest side of fashion, nothin’ too too flashy. This didn’t surprise me, he almost instantly struck me as "classic guy". The classic/typical/average guy wants to look nice, but doesn’t go to extreme heights to stay trendy (many are just too damn busy). Well, today, we opted to mix his usual chill look with a little Urban Gent sauce of the classic and edgy variety.

Old Baseball Footage: Hank Aaron, Lou Gehrig, Willie Mays, & Other Baseball Legends.

All this talk of baseball caps and history lead me to look at old footage of baseball games. I found a couple worthy to re-post.

 

Hank Aaron Wins the Pennant for the Braves:

 

Old Lost Footage (Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth, Roberto Clemente, etc):

 

Willie Mays, "The Most Famous Baseball Catch"

It is said that Willie Mays is the greatest baseball player in history, and I guess it has constantly been confirmed by other legendary baseball players. Mickey Mantle once stated that Mays was the best baseball player to have ever lived, and consistently maintained that Mays had the better career. Even players who didn't believe in perfection or being the best felt Willie was #1,"There has never been a perfect ballplayer. [But] Willie Mays came the closest to perfection."Joe Dimaggio. Read more about the great Willie Mays on his website, here.

Urban Gentleman: Myron Rolle

 |  Sports  |  4 Comments
One of my best friends forwarded me this article– it aligns itself with the aura and the values of The Urban Gent. Myron Rolle: Rhodes Scholar, future neurosurgeon, NFL-first rounder, and true to heart Urban Gentleman/Renaissance Man is making fellow Urban Gents around the world very proud. And it’s not about the color of his skin, it’s about the the basic principle he steadily lives by, the principle of giving your best at everything you do and always making the most at every opportunity given. Yeah, that may sound pretty simple, but everyone doesn’t do it… but it’s what all men must do. When you get the time read the article on Myron Rolle here.
