Fell in the Sun.

It's starting to get a little chilly out there, so our wardrobes are undergoing slight modifications. One item that luckily doesn't have to be packed away from season to season are sunglasses… shades… sunnies – whatever they call them in your part of the world. Browse a few of our top pics below, as you listen to "Fell in the SUn" by Big Grams.

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.

How to Pick the Right Dog for Men: Budget, Breed, Lifestyle

No Urban Gentleman and Gentlepup series would be complete without a TUG Guide to Picking the Right Dog for You.

When on the search for a new pup the selection process can be as simple or detailed as you would like.  Three years ago, when I was on the hunt for a new dog, there were a few things I knew I HAD to have: he needed to be small (I lived in an apartment), he needed to not shed (I didn't want to have to constantly cleanup hair), and he needed to be smart (I couldn't deal with slow/stubborn dog at that point in my life, lol ;) . Those parameters narrowed down my list pretty quickly, so similarly I would advise you to  follow the steps below when choosing a new dog.

List of 6 Steps to take when Searching for the Right Dog

1. Think about your lifestyle and what you want and need from a dog-- write down your findings. This doesn't have to be long, just a few sentences. After doing this you'll probably already have a few breeds in mind that you think could work.

2. Decide what size you want: Small, Medium, Large. This will largely depend on where you live and on your purpose for having a dog.  Are you in the suburbs or city? 1 bedroom apartment or 6 bedroom townhouse?  While there are big dogs that do well in small spaces, its always best to try to keep the dog's size proportionate to your living situation.

Also get down to the nitty gritty of why you want a dog– just for companionship?  to play sports/be active with? to be an extra layer of security? If your sole purpose is to just have an on-call co-pilot then you may be more keen to have a smaller size. On the other hand if you want a dog that can be your canine bouncer then you'll likely want a pup with more build and stature.
