For the past week, I've been jamming to the tunes of fellow yardie – Proteje. And I must say it's been quite refreshing. We all love Bob Marley, but I had been wondering when another artist would come along and offer a modern alternative. I did a little digging and learned that, "there's an exciting resurgence of conscious, organic music in Jamaica" and artist like Protoje are leading the pack. It's a Reggae Revival. Stay Tuned for our Protoje interview.

Day 3 was the day I most anticipated. Let's put it this way– my dogs first middle name is Bastian (don't judge me). So yea, I'm a fan of his work.
Michael Bastian's showing at New York's first Men's Fashion Week was also his first time showing for women. Job well done, Mikey B. job well done. Personally, I think of Michael Bastian as a mix between Dsquared and Ralph Lauren. Classic Americana, but with a current main stream edge that men want and desire. His Spring/Summer 2016 Collection was no different – he offered lots of obvious multi-use pieces that are easy to place in your closet. From athlete to power broker, polo to double breasted blazer, tassel loafers to high-top kicks… he depicted the new age Bel-air man. Carlton meets Gordon Gekko meets Stephen Curry.
Duck Dynasty has finally made it to the runway – Hey! Uncle Si would be ecstatic:-)
