yeasayer. ambling asp. gotta post this. i'm not entirely sure that i like this track. the video is pretty weird. love the line "max schmeling was a formidable foe." max schmeling was the nazi dude that scored a flash knockout of joe lewis and then got dominated at yankee stadium.

a different looking sweater.

big fan of this sweater. it is certainly expensive, but i dont need this particular one. i like the deep neckline and the attached circle scarf. the black back panel is totally sweet.
it is from oak nyc check it out here.

monday grab bag.

style icon. ok maybe not. but this dude has taken the epitome of american farmer fashion to the streets of copenhagen. i'm a little over every dude wearing the same awesome red wings. check out their website and find some original ones. like these or these. but sick hat and plaids.

basement jaxx emalkay

as much of the B&N Nation knows. i was in chicago earlier this month for the Basement Jaxx/ MSTRKRFT concert. it was too good, too much. we had a discussion on the way home about the best concerts i've seen. that was definitely up there and thinking about it more i can say it was probably the best.
this is the first of photo i've posted of myself. and it is very low quality but i love what it represents. MSTRKRFT came on after basement jaxx and this is me scratching my head at the start of the second act. i couldnt believe what i had just seen.

i'm wearing a 3 dollar double breasted blazer, burberry checked shirt, hardwood classics pacers hat, and matthew williamson for h&m scarf.
here is the track they boomed. it is from EMALKAY a dubstep producer from the UK. i love burial and this guy is also awesome.

100% credit for this post is Harry Henderson. He took the photo and found the SIIIIIIIIIIIICCCCCCCCCCCCCK track.

awesome chicks.

japanese street style. from drop snap. i love the outfits on these babes. they look so different but both have awesome elements. a huge collar, playing around with different sleeve lengths, and shorts with tights. polka dotted sweatshirt siiiiiiicccck. it looks like its from american apparel. i have a similar one, but it is cranberry and with blue dots. i know... i'm awesome.

kenny loggins - keep the fire

keeeeeeeeep the fire. this is an autographed album cover of the MR. kenneth loggins' keep the fire. i know its awesome. you probably know "this is it" the main single from this album. but i'd like to focus on the title track Keep the Fire. i listened to this track about 300 times this weekend. enjoy the smooth groves but pack a suitcase because kenneth is going to take you on a journey.

h&m dudes.

h&m spring summer look book. here are my four favorite things. i say things because i'm not sure about the outfits all together.
while i do like the denim shirt layering in this look. i would never buy a blazer that short.

same layering pretty sweet jacket.

nice tight looking suit. huge scarf.

pretty sick and tired of the graphic tee under blazer. but this long drape-y jacket looks pretty awesome. i dont know why i like it but i certainly do.

here is the whole spring summer lookbook from hypebeast.

clipse on the drudge report?

loyal blog contributor chad sexington wants more mainstream media linked on B&N. he suggested wsj nytimes, etc. what of it chad? here is something that was linked on the drudge report today. it was linked on the drudge because mtv blurred out the "obama fried chicken" sign when they released the video. that doesnt make any sense. but hey this isnt a political forum, just enjoy the video

original story
clipse's newest album 'til the casket drops is to be released dec 8th. its already on my top 10 of the year.

f**k buttons

fuck buttons are a two piece electronic band from bristol england. their newest album tarot sport is amazing. i think i was avoiding their music because of their vulgar name. well that was fucking stupid. most of their songs are longer. but here is a video released by the band editing down my favorite song. penguins and sweet music. enjoy.

yo tight jeans dawg. and i mean tight jeans like sweet jeans. but i'm also stating the fact those jeans are not loose.
tight black jeans.

i like that dude's toms and ripped jeans. i'd be very nervous about buying some nice jeans and then ripping the beejesus out of them. but that looks awesome.


hot chicks/opera gloves and pavarotti

i stole this post direct from bleachblack. a sick blog from some chicks that work for rvca.

they wanted to wear opera gloves at all times. but i'm heading to La Boheme this weekend. i'll make sure to keep my eyes peeled for some super hot chick wearing super awesome opera length gloves at the opera this weekend.

some sick puccini. pavarotti killing some rodolfo.

denim leggings.

i saw this chick on denimology. a sweet resource for all things denim. this is apparently some chick from 90210 named jessica stroup and she is wearing 7 for all mankind leggings. available here.
how sick are these? seriously they are awesome. the next level of skinny tight jeans for chicks. most of the chicks stuff i post on here is pretty out there but these are totally reasonable. maybe too reasonable for B&N.

monday grab bag.

time to increase blog output.

here are some interesting things.
On the Street with Bill Cunningham. he talks about all the chicks wearing black and white for autumn in new york.

the famous alexander mcqueen shoes being worn in public by daphne guinness. if you guys dont know her, no big deal she is like 40 years old. and amazing, seriously. heiress, divorcee of some rich dude, she's got it all. google her if you dont believe me. here is a lookbook of her.
here are more pictures of daphne in mcqueen from bryanboy.

lady gaga and beyonce on video phone. sicccccccccck video. check it out.

at one point beyonce is wearing these awesome margiela incognito sunglasses. that you've already heard about on B&N.

my new suit.

i found this gem at value world on the east side. same place i found a brioni polo shirt. lets talk about it.
there is a little more blue in the fabric than shows up in the pictures. the jacket was listed as a 38, fit great at the store. the pants were 32x29 with quite a bit of fabric left on the hem. but with a no-try-on policy at value world i had to take a 12 dollar gamble. totally paid off!

here is some perspective on the suit. two button flat front pants. tailored at L. Strauss, the upscale of upscale men's stores in indianapolis, closed in the 1980s.

lanvin is sooooooo awesome and i'm so lucky that i was able to find such an awesome suit. thought i'd share a thrift store find with the B&N Nation.

circle scarf.

B&N has talked about a recently purchased circle scarf that is totally awesome but very big. here is the same scarf worn by a totally sweet fashion blogger chick. she's been on B&N before.

i dont think its possible for a dude to wear a scarf partially on the head. but i think it looks totally awesome on chicks. this is a must for chicks this coming season. i'll tell you the bad news its already in the wall street journal with a corny nickname. the snood. barf. but seriously how awesome does this look?
