Wearing athletic wear for travel is certainly nothing new, but with more technical clothing being released thanks to the street-sportswear trend continually growing the styling options have gotten better for on and off the plane. I recently went on a trip to Germany to check out the new Element Frankfurt Airport Hotel, the first of this eco-friendly hotel line in Europe that’s only 15 minutes away from the center of Frankfurt and offers a relaxing stay with its home-y studio apartment styled suites, and I traveled wearing styles from lululemon men’s latest collection of fashionable styles that allow to be active in if needed or wanted.
While I wasn’t able to do a shoot my look while in Frankfurt due to scheduling and all the rain while I was there, when I returned stateside I shot the same outfit in New York. Since Frankfurt is also known as Mainhattan, for the city’s notable skyline with modern high-rise buildings and the local Main River, it seemed more than fitting that I shoot in Lower Manhattan and Ellis Island to show the city’s skyline.

Fall is a great time to layer, and a simple way to do for a casual look is with a denim jacket and statement accessories. This fall has already been such a crazy time for me that I haven’t been posting as much as I usually do–sorry! Just got back from traveling Europe (so excited to share about that soon) and am now in Vancouver. Have had to keep styles rather casual so thought would be a good time to post about that.
In these latest few weeks of summer and the upcoming Labor Day weekend, make a statement with your swim suit. A colorful, unique print on a pair can make a big splash!
Expanding my Outfit series to include “how to” guides, figured I’d start off with a styling question that everyone asks themselves: how to style a basic black tee? Simple answer, it’s all about the shoes!
Pair a simple black tee with a pair of slim or skinny jeans (like Mavi’s Daniel style), add favorite accessories and slip on pretty much any statement shoes you feel like that day. Whether it’s a pair of luxury, leather moccasins such as these Killers from Sandro, or a colorful pair of espadrilles or penny loafers, your shoes will standout even more when styled with a black tee.
No, not the Backstreet Boys album from over a decade ago, but just a simple styling approach with two of the most prominent colors/shades in the every guy’s closet for a city travel look.
The cold fall air is in full swing here in the Northeast, which means its time to pull put on those wool jackets if haven’t been already. For an edgier look than the classic wool zip-up or peacoat, Canadian luxury outwear brand Mackage offers jackets and coats that combine three fall and winter essential skins and styles: wool, leather and the down jacket.
Browsing Mackage’s current collection, the Sinclair Biker is an asymmetrical styled wool zip up with leather trimming and notched lapels. You get two looks with this coat, as the down nylon arms are removable. To style this black beauty, I had Vee Travels model Hayden put on a black camo waffle crew from Uniqlo, H&M blue jeans, a Tibetan Mask Bead Bracelet from Yuvi Alpert’s Men In Cities, black Express aviators and a pair of suede lace up ALDO mid-calf boots that he surprised me with.
Hayden’s signature mohawk style and ear piercings added the perfect edge to the overall look
Don’t just pop on any sweater this fall season, stand out with an eye-catching pattern. You don’t have to go with a loud print nor multicolor argyle, but a simple woven pattern such as this John Varvatos henley sweater can go a long way when paired with vivid (but still simple) accessories.
Shot at the Mondrian SoHo, Hayden models the charcoal grey Varvatos sweater paired with a reversible, red tonal leather belt from Varvatos (red is always best paired with solids, and breaks up the sweater and H&M skinny jeans nicely), sky blue aviators from Express, and a pair of skull patterned socks from Stance (to break up the jeans and simple ALDO kicks).
