Here are my favorite deals for Thrifty Thursday from The Gap, American Eagle Outfitters, Gilt, and Top Man!
Not gonna lie, I drank the kool aid.
After a seven-year-hiatus from Fashion Week, designer and AIDS Activist Kenneth Cole makes his comeback this Thursday on the runway. He just announced a collaboration with Sarah Jessica Parker for a new evening handbag that comes with a condom inside! There’s even an inscription on the bag that says “We’re all potential carriers”. What a provocative way to spread awareness to a cause that sadly plagues this world we live in. The bag will make its debut tomorrow on the runway during the the live streaming of the Kenneth Cole show. Twenty will be sold with 100 percent of the proceeds going to amfaR.
AND THAT’S NOT IT!
As chairman of amfaR, Cole will be donating $1to AIDS research for every @KennethCole follower on Twitter who retweets #KCRUNWAY during the live streaming of his show and all throughout fashion week.

Zara unveiled their Spring/Summer 2013 Collection today. Check it out.
I think the lines are starting to blur between streetwear and casual business attire.
I die for this two tone knit blazer. It’s so versatile. From a night out with friends, to Sunday brunch, then to work on Monday, the possibilities are endless. Pair it with a lapel flower for a dramatically different look that adds a splash of color without compromising your masculinity.
I like these lapel flowers from J and HP Clothing.
No, they are not paying me to talk about them. I just know what looks good.
I’ve been thinking about ordering a custom-made suit from Indochino. It’s so disheartening when you find out that you’re not the “tailor’s dream” that you thought you were. In my head a “tailor’s dream” translates to the ease of finding something ready made at a store.
The other day at Top Man, I was trying on their new skinny suit. It hung there staring at me with its sexy charcoal grayness, but to no avail, I couldn’t find the right fit. I’m a short guy with broad shoulders. The sales guy told me that it’s actually a common problem, that it’s hard to find a perfect ready made suit for just about anyone. Anyways, I’ve been thinking about purchasing a custom-made suit from Indochino. I want something fitted to my body, slim looking. I think that because I have broad shoulders, there’s a tendency for suit jackets to look too wide/long on ready made suits. I’m wondering if Indochino would be something to remedy this problem. Can anybody speak to this?
Do you hate me for not keeping up? Sorry, I’ve been busy taking fashion risks!
The video speaks for itself. Congratulations, B!
