Summer Easy

Dapper Fellow:

I love this look. It’s like an urban street wear take on the leading man for a Nicholas Sparks movie.

Where are you going? Happy Hour.

That pretty much sums up style for the season. The Summer Edition of our Style Guide gives you more ideas no matter where you are going. Our guy is Chase Williams and he is ready to hit happy hour with our new cocktail, the Wild Safari.

Prada Infusion d’Homme; a Summer Fling

Some people say their weakness is shoes or bags.  My weakness is what I like to call the ’3 C’s’, which stands for cardigans, cologne, and…well I’ll let you figure out the last one on your own.

Summer is here, and now that the douchey main stream has caught onto the fragrance, Chanel Bleu, I thought it was time for a summer fling.  It doesn’t mean that I’ve totally broken things off with my BF CB.  We’re just on a break, indefinitely.

His name is Prada Infusion d’Homme, and I met him last night.  It wasn’t exactly love at first sight.  I mean, there were so many bottles to look at, so much eye candy vying for my attention, but for some reason, call me a hopeless romantic because Prada Infusion d’Homme stopped me right at my tracks.  Maybe I was woo’d by his vintage perfume decanter, but I could see right through his transparent glass intentions.  I sprayed a sample on my left wrist.  I told myself I’d only have one.  Then I became a gonner to the intoxication and needed more.  I put him on my other wrist, then my chest, my neck, and behind my ears.  I wanted him all over my body and before I knew it, he came home with me.  Who would have ever thought I’d pay for this kind of love?

We had a quickie this morning after I showered.  The scent of neroli from Tunisia, iris palida, veiver, cedar, incense, and benzoin still on me.

There he is teasing me, surrounded by my clothes and my trashy romance novels.

FYI for the ladies, he has a twin sister, and her name is Prada Infusion d’Iris

For my gays and their friends

Found this funny picture.

Blue Jeans, the Gay Gene, and now the Style Gene.

There’s been new debate on whether or not some kids are just born with a great fashion sense.  I totally believe this.  Growing up, I just never dressed like all the rest of the boys that I went to school with.  I preferred my fabrics to be thinner and tailored/fit to my body.  This daunting rule I administered upon my wardrobe proved to be a difficult task to accomplish. They didn’t sell smaller cuts back then.  Thus, I would purposefully buy apparel that was smaller and find a way to squeeze into them.  It was total B.S. (Before Spanks).  Then the whole metrosexual revolution happened and BAM, men gradually became more concerned with fit!  Thank God.  Gosh, why did it take a thousand years for men to realize dressing well doesn’t make you any less masculine?  I like to think I was ahead of my time.  I don’t claim to be some great style icon, but in my head, I was the biggest thing next to Andre Leon Talley!

And just in case you had any doubts about whether I was ahead of my time, here’s a picture of me when I was 3-years old in the 1980s and a picture of Madonna in 2008.  Bitch stole my look!

P.S. Raise your hand if you’re just as jealous of Skyler Zoe’s closet as I am!

There are Suits among us, Mr. Porter

So remember how Anna Wintour became the pioneer of putting celebrities on the front of Vogue instead of models and it revolutionalized the way fashion houses advertised their clothing…blah blah blah.   The people behind Mr. Porter have followed suit, like literally!  I don’t know who’s behind it all, but somebody finally found a way to speak to the seXY chromosome and put together quite a dapper collaboration.  In conjunction with the season premiere of the tv show Suits, Mr. Porter has launched a contest to win a $25,000 wardrobe from one Mr. Porter himself!  Did I mention you can shop the website to mimic your own sweet Suit style?  You can shop looks from Uptown to Downtown to please dress me up in your love, Harvey Specter.  This is like Vogue meets NBC’s Next Fashion Star meets the bottom of my bank account.

Portlandia, The Happiest Place on Earth

Apologies if you felt abandoned.  I just finished writing a screenplay for grad school, thus I’m using that as an excuse for not being so diligent with the blog.  Someone at work called me “dapper” the other day and I took that as a sign that I should post immediately if not sooner.  She has no idea that I have this site as my side project.  The fact of the matter is, when I feel gross, I just don’t feel worthy of commentating anything about style, so I guess that’s half the battle.  I need to learn how to channel my inner dapperness.

Anyways, in the moment we all blinked and missed each other, apparently, my future parent company (for one of my imagined business entities) has instituted some new hipster-friendly fashion rules for their Walt Disney Parks.  Get my assistant on line one!  I need him to call Scruff McGruff in Chicago, Illionois and to ask if he’s interested in being part of the cast.  Disney has made it okay for employees to grow out their facial hair.  Apparently mustaches and beards (the real kind, not the kind you bring as your prom date to convince everyone you’re straight) have been prohibited since 1955.

I’m just excited and delighted by this latest white flag.  I love me some cute boys with facial hair, especially the squeaky clean kinds that work for the House of Mouse.  Save me a spot in the canoe ride around Tom Sawyer’s Island next time?

Here are some funny Disney Hipster inspired Memes:

Sock it up, Rob Kardashian!

Have you ever wanted to see what it’s like to walk in the footsteps of the Kardashians?  I have to admit that I’d be lying if I said no.  Who am I kidding?  Of course I’d say hell yes, but only for a short period of time.  I’d go crazy from the following:

  1. Be hungry from my diet consisting of only Quick Trim.
  2. Treat my family and friends to a lavish dinner by paying with my defunct ‘Kardashian Prepaid MasterCard’.
  3. Check into rehab with my new addiction to Pistachios.
  4. Wear “Unbreakable” to every party and not admit to the name of the scent.
  5. Cleanse my face with PerfectSkin and pretend that my skin has been infused with diamonds.
  6. Dress in drag and perform a burlesque number with my new blouse from the Kardashian collection from Sears.
  7. Go to Bora Bora and lose a diamond earring in the ocean.

Anyways, you get the picture.  This family has created a multimedia empire, and for some reason, Kris Humphries backlash aside, we keep coming back for more.  The trio of sisters are no longer the only ones making strides into capitalistic ventures.  Yes friends, baby brother Rob of the Kardashian dynasty is coming out with his very own line of dress socks.  If there’s one thing our friend Jeff Glor from the CBS Early Show has taught us, it’s that having a pair of decent looking socks will add some surprisingly manly spice to your daily ensemble.  I’m looking forward to pumping up my kicks with some stripes, dots, and other funky designs.  Socks are starting to provide our feet with more than just warmth, but an accessory you can’t step out of the house without.  Men who wear bold socks and pair them with their daily work attire look more on point; having that much attention to detail makes for a snazzy outfit.  Here’s to keeping our feet warm and dapper this winter.  Time to dash…haha, get it?  Dash! Ok, I’ll calm down now.  Rob, give us a preview, will ya?
