For Details I chatted with Lacoste’s creative director Felipe Oliveira Baptista during fashion week to get the designer’s tips on wearing the brand’s signature and iconic style, the polo. From our conversation, these are the polo styling tips I gathered that are easy to remember and to keep in when dressing or shopping for your next polo. Read the rest of this entry
While in Vancouver this summer, instead of running the lululemon SeaWheeze half marathon I went for a bike ride with others who were also sitting out the run. We rode along the runner’s route to cheer and see the run, which brought throughout the city over across one of the several bridges over to Kitsilano Beach (also known as “Kits” Beach). There with the picturesque background (though almost everywhere in Vancouver – at least where I was – seemed to be picture qorthy) I decided to do an importune outfit shoot. More below:
With fall here it’s time to pull out those sweaters, light jackets and other fall essentials and put them to use. Below are are eight of my fall essentials and styles you can get now from Original Penguin, Perry Ellis, Ben Minkoff and more:
In New York on 145 Spring Street in SoHo, the French luxury brand Sandro has opened up its first U.S. men’s store, the Sandro Homme Workshop, which will be featuring a different shopping concept and experience. From my article for AskMen.com, along with the chic fall and winter styles, the Workshop will feature in-store artist collaborations that includes showcasing a new artist each month through the end of the year. Each artist will have a week-long live installation in the beginning of their time in the Workshop towards the front entrance, with their work staying on display through the rest of the month.
More about the new store, which will remain open through the end of 2014 as Sandro looks for a new spot to open up a flagship, on AskMen.com. And if you are wondering what Sandro is offering this fall, I’ve picked out my five favorites below:
This summer I got to visit Vancouver for the first time for the lululemon SeaWheeze Half Marathon. Since the destination is known for its outdoor and fitness nature, I based what I was going to bring with me on what a savvy athletic traveler should be using on flight.
Headphones – V-Moda
While earbuds are perfect for the outdoors and running, a stylish and functional pair of headphones for the international flight are essential. The V-Moda XS are an on-the-ear style pair of headphones that are foldable for easy packing. Noise-isloating and providing award winning sound, the style is also customizable to your liking.

While at New York Fashion Week I took advantage of free time I had to shoot a couple of outfits. First up, one to bring you from summer to fall.
Bold prints can be worn year round, but the end of summer is really the last chance you can make bright florals work with the upcoming elements (at least that’s true if you live in the north East Coast, since if you are Los Angeles and Miami you can wear the print all year round). I styled a blue floral-geo print short sleeve button down from Express with black accessories and a tee to contrast the shirt, but added a pair of cerulean blue slacks to balance the overall look. Along with my accessories like the Frank & Oak canvas and leather backpack and Kenneth Cole leather slip-on kicks, I also show the ultimate fashion week essential; a Mophie juice pack helium battery phone case in a metallic green. Seriously, I sadly would not have survived without from all the shows, events, and street style and backstage coverage I did while at NYFW. See more of the look below:
