I know I've been lagging on blogging. I'm in that state where I'm having a lot of fun with documenting life through video right now though I want to continue to keep the blog up to date. I decided that I embed photos all the time, why can't I embed video and write and be more descriptive on the subject.
I've realized this Summer I've seriously been wearing the same things over and over. That's cause for men Summer is simple, we don't layer up and we don't have all the cuts and styles that women have. I decided to throw together a fun video of the essentials I find myself being necessary in my looks this Summer.
The Basic Tee - Zara
The basic tee really is a basic always but in Summer I constantly throw on these scoop neck tees from Zara. I love the cut, I'm a scoop neck kinda guy, its just a cut I find is flattering on myself versus a v-neck or a crew neck. These tees get worn multiple times a week and can easily be accessorized to look different.
The Blue Jean - Nudie Jeans Co.
I'm a black and grey jeans guy but in the Summer you have to try to brighten up and get out of those black jeans or you may be dying (Okay, you don't have too and most of the time I don't.) but blue jeans cool down and chill out the vibe. I worked these Nudie Jeans in since they were raw and so they have quite a lot of sentimental value.
Low Top - Converse
There really isn't a lot to say about these. They should just be a staple in anyones shoe collection. They are easy to throw and really just look better with age. This particular pair has been used and abused and still has tons of life in them.
Cut Off Shorts - Levis
Cut off Levis in black are my go to shorts when I want something simple and ease to outfit. I just cut these off some 510's last year and they are the perfect sit. I can roll em to put a polished look or I can leave them open and distressed.
Summer Boot - Topman (Similar)
White boots to fill my black boot collection. Found this obvious doc inspired boots at Topman and couldn't pass em up, even though I was informed too several times. I got them and no regrets.
Muscle Tank - Forever21
Okay, I seriously debated getting this shirt. I think the doucheness of wearing heartthrob is just ironic. And is not taken seriously, at all. I cut it up a little and that makes me wear it a ton more. It's probably been my go-to muscle tank when going to the beach this season.
Denim Jacket - Topman
It gets cold at night in the Summer especially if you are near the beach. This light wash to medium wash denim jacket is a perfect thing to throw over your muscle tee once it starts to get cold in the evening. I scored this at Nordstrom on sale when I was debating between this and a very similar wash from All Saints. Cannot beat the price for a perfect denim jacket. Wear it and abuse it, all seasons.
Graphic Tee - Ceasar Arellanes
This is seriously my perfect graphic tee. It has holes. Check. It's ripped up. Check. It's fall colors cause I wear fall colors year round. Check. I have been wearing this shirt to pieces (literally.) It's perfect and an awesome designer tee I found for a steal at Wasteland.
