Air Jordan Incline

AJ Air Incline-14

Retro is all the rage now, whether its re-releases or retro-inspired kicks. With most reissues being out of reach for many, retro inspired kicks are a better option. Hot on the heels of other lifestyle offerings from Jordan Brand this year, like the Future and the Shine, the  Air Incline is another brilliant sneaker to cop this year.

The Great Outdoors

Brown boots-15

 How often do we go outdoors anymore. No, I don’t mean going to work, or to your favorite pub. I mean to go away from habitation, into a forest, into the hills. Take a walk, smell the flowers, wrestle bears, you know. This outfit isn’t for those times. This is for when you want to look like you wrestle bears before tea in the afternoon.

Black Rain

 

 

Black Camo-10

The monsoon has been quite bad this year. Sporadic rainfall means that I haven’t brought out the full length rain coat yet, but I still carry around a rain jacket just in case. This means that I am happy and farmers aren’t, which means economic repercussions. Yes, I do spend time thinking about these things but for now, let’s look at how monochrome works with prints.

Dope

 

Strawlous-7

Dope.

1. a drug taken illegally for recreational purposes, especially cannabis or (US)heroin.

2. a stupid person.

This post has neither of these. What it does have though, are some totally dope (3. adj. very good) garments including a bucket hat.

Oh yeah.

And it says Dope.

Learn To Fly

QB Air Trousers-5

Clothes usually are incapable of bestowing the gift of flight upon us. Unless of course you happen to rock Tony Stark’s suit  or a Power Ring. But sometimes the clothes you wear can make you appear and feel so fly, you might actually be rising above everyone else. Let’s take a look at how you can do just that.

High Hat


QB Air Nehru-3

 Buddy, Baby, Hubby, Daddy. In his lifetime, a man wears many hats. I don’t wear hats. This fedora belongs to a friend. The only hats I’ve ever owned are New Era snapbacks as you can see in this earlier post. So this is me trying to fill that hat-shaped gap in my life.

The Green Mile

QB Typo-12

I find analog devices fascinating. Whether its moving needles on timepieces and speedometers or the feedback you get from the keys on a typewriter or a grand piano. So you can call me old-fashioned.  Exactly why this outfit is something completely out of the ordinary for me. Because its a short suit. With some typewriters thrown in.

The Van Heusen Perfect Fit Challenge

VH Showroom visit-3

Water covers more than 70% of the Earth’s surface. That’s a significant amount. Your trousers cover more than 60% of your body. But to most men, they are merely an afterthought. Just buying slim fitting shirts and jackets does not flatter your figure as trousers influence your silhouette even more. Thankfully, in today’s world where manufacturers realize that we all are different, they give us clothes in a wide variety of sizes and fits. Yes, its not just women who get to shop by body type.

Diver-gent

Deb & Me-8

Contrast is the difference in luminance or color that makes objects distinguishable from one another. And in a way all of us try to set ourselves apart from the rest. But how different are we really? I set out to find just that out with fellow dapper gent, Dipayan Debbarma.

Crimson Tide

Red Rain-10Rain. Some of the weird ones among us seem to enjoy this phenomenon. Pluviophiles or something. I however, hate the rain. Being outdoors means getting soaked and mostly spending time stuck in traffic or waiting under the eaves of shops. Being indoors means being stuck in a house without electricity, with only the company of mosquitoes to help pass the time. But all this doesn’t mean that you can’t look good during the rains. It is possible and I will show you how you can step out looking like a million bucks and show mother nature she can’t knock your hustle with a little downpour.
