Bn'N Nation - Corduroy pants are back. Here is why and how. 1. I'm tired of wearing blue jeans. 2. Khaki pants are vegetable lasagna. 3. Grey pants look too much like dress pants. 4. Why Not? A pair of khaki colored corduroy pants with a thin valley of cord are not only comfortable they look nice and different. Check these bad boys out from Levi's Japan. photo from hypebeast Some things to watch out for: need a thin valley of cord, pockets need to be like jeans (on the top/not side), and other colors are sweet, but steer clear of dark brown. roll up the pant legs a little bit add some supersweet/classic topsiders boom you've got yourself a sweet post-winter pre-spring pant/shoe combination.
Guest Blogger Mateo pontificates about Chuck Taylors.
*this is not a picture of Mateo. The Converse All-Star, with its simple, economical design had a consistent fan base of kinda lame kids and kinda nerdy kids over the course of the last 20 years. That is, of course, until about 3 years ago when many started to realize that the simple, casual shoes made sense as an everyday wardrobe staple. A young hipster could wear their Chuck’s and look like she was not trying at all, yet still carried herself as being stylishly unencumbered by the need to wear shoes that were either more costly or more hip.
Somewhere along the line, our young hipster found that by bucking the trend, she was in fact making the trend. I own a pair of ratty Chuck’s that I bought about two and a half years ago for $15 in DC’s Chinatown. I had them before a lot of people, so I got a lot of complements for about 3 months. People reveled in my irreverence to the need for fancier, trendier shoes. I reveled in their complements.
I feel that my Chuck’s offer a good summary of the state of the brand as a whole: they are ratty and worn, and ready to be retired.
Warmer weather means that I must hang up my big scarves. Don't worry little fellas you'll remain close to my heart. Lets look back at some sweet scarves. I love this chick's look. Found her on the Sartorialist and this scarf has all the makings of a legitimate quilt. Even though her frame is tiny she is able to wear this scarf sooooo well by tucking it into the belt on her coat.
This freakin' stud was a candidate for beard of the week... but he's a nobody.
Check out his awesome beard, long scarf, and pocket square.
This chick is just messin' around. Look at her wearing track pants and high heels with a 15 foot scarf.
ooooh man... she is stupid hot. Garance Dore, a sweet French fashion blog, always posts pictures of this same unbelievably stylish Russian chick. yeaaaaaaaaaaa chicks. glasses = hot I'm loving this chick's big watch and bracelets.
