The holiday shopping season is in full force this Thanksgiving Eve! My gift guide series have hopefully inspired you for some ideas on what to get for friends, family and significant others this holiday, or maybe you even decided to pickup something for yourself—which happens to me more often than not when I shop. For this set I partnered with Stanley and its Gift of Stanleyness campaign to share my gift ideas for travelers who like the outdoors and adventure: Read the rest of this entry
If you find yourself heading to Magic City this weekend for the Ultra Music Festival, I’ve put together a cool guy’s guide for AskMen.com to give you a rundown of who to check out, where to eat, drink and shop in Miami, who to take style inspiration from, and what to wear:
Styling for any music festival, you can never go wrong with skinny jeans, but if the destination is very warm (like Miami), shorts are also a great option—just make sure to go for flat front over cargo styles (those are so over). For tops, go for graphic tees and tanks with funky designs, and make sure to skip out on the usual band, kitsch or ironic T-shirts. For accessories and footwear, old-school chic and plastic sunglasses are great to go from music festival to sunbathing, a colorful or print baseball cap is useful all spring and summer long, and sneakers and slip-ons are good go-tos as you’ll be standing and bouncing around for hours.

I fell for this Denim & Supply tribal print pullover my friend and blog model James showed me, and knew I could go two ways with it. Instead of just putting together a full boho look, I decided to dress it up—but still keeping it casual—with a weather appropriate dapper overcoat. Then adding some tech flair via a tech case from Trask (currently sold out, but here’s the spring option)
James’ well groomed hair and scruff also greatly added to the modern effect of this look I styled, but again still keeping it casual with jeans and a pair of TOMS+ camo suede ridge botas (also giving it some light pattern clashing). Shot just as the winter shops in Bryant Park closed up.
Spruce up your work style this winter by adding a little color blocking to your look. If you haven’t ventured into this trend yet, no better time than the present. Shot before the holidays, I styled Vee Travels blog model James to show you how effortlessly it can be done.
I love accessories, no question about that, and when I saw this Coach commuter bag I knew it was perfect this service-y post for guys who haven’t color blocked yet. Using the typical khaki slacks and a striped button down shirt look, I used the color scheme of the bag to add on the rest of the look.
