a case for turtlenecks

London Collections: Men finished off earlier this week championing high-waisted pants for the sake of the male FUPA. In this week's edition of street style, procured from photographer and funny man Tommy Ton, we see men gander the streets like they have somewhere to be sporting turtlenecks.

what do we think of high-waisted pants?

London Collections: Men just wrapped up yesterday to riveting shows of playful construction and experimentation. Which, is what LC:M is synonymous with and will continue to be as a playground for young designers. From the lego faces at Agi and Sam to the dichotomous Moschino. But what I am most aroused by is the selection of high-waited pants.

The male FUPA lives.

tiffany & co. recruits non-models for gay ad

Tiffany & Co., purveyor of fine luxury jewellery for heterosexual people are now campaigning to capitalize on the rising rates of gay marriage. Is society still hung up on marriage? Will You?

Fuck no. dubbed the campaign "groundbreaking". Yes. It is groundbreaking in that a large corporation is championing for gays to get married. What is not so groundbreaking is the ad itself.

The debut ad features a real-life white New York couple who are non-models, but who actually look like models. They're casually hanging out on the brownstone stoop because that it is what real people do. We touch each other at the knees and don't look at each other.

Who wrote that copy? It is cheesy as fuck.

Tiffany & Co. probably doesn't know the protocols in how gay marriage works. I don't know either, but in heterosexual couples, the norm is that the man proposes. There is hierarchy in this ad. There is a height difference between the models. There is rolling of the sleeves. The more elevated model is most likely the one that proposed to the smiling blonde that looked away and pondered...

"I am a bottom and I submit to you, my top."

preemptive coachella sartorial guide

Coachella 2015

Amid the below freezing temperatures of Antarctica cloaking itself on Toronto, causing myself to layer excessively to the point of peeling them off in the middle of the night, a glowing light (my smartphone screen) ushered Coachella's 2015 lineup.

take the vest, or a vacation

After New Years, you made a perennial mental commitment to joining a fitness club. Good for you and better for the fitness club you're about to join because they know your commitment to attending is akin to a dean lacking to create any sexual assault dismissals. Most likely, you're joining for various null reasons.

Lets take a gander.

a pragmatic guide to golden goose deluxe brand

I'm feeling more liberated this morning relative to other mornings. Why? This morning, the morning of the new year, 2015, with a slogan so catchy and original "NEW YEAR, NEW ME (or insert your name)", is free from hangovers. At 27, I think with age comes wisdom and that New Years is just like any other fucking day and all you really need is a really good playlist, doe, and dip.

Transferring that proverbial slogan to brands, New Year, New Brands, let me inform you about a pair of sneakers that put me in the minus. I like to think I have the ability to trend forecast and with the rise of luxury sneakers saturating the market, it's nice to find something niche. I present to you, my hungover readers, Golden Goose Deluxe Brand.
