WSP x Dr. Martens by Brandon Bryant

Hey guys hope all is well. Super excited to show you all some of the new content that I am working on. Today’s post is focused on boots. Many people may not wear boots during the summer but it all depends on what brand of boots you choose to wear. Today’s pair of boots of choice is Dr. Martens.

Dr. Martens are built to last and made using one of the finest methods of construction: the Goodyear Welt — which means the upper and sole are sewn together with a heat-sealed z-welt stitch. The 1460 boot sits on our iconic AirWair™ sole, which is oil and fat resistant with good abrasion and slip resistance, and is made with Smooth, a lightly textured, highly durable leather with a soft sheen.

Now onto the outfit. I decided to dress it down a bit. I really have been wearing a ton of t-shirts with a patterned button down most days this summer. It is a step above just wearing simple t-shirt out. I thought the yankees hat and the cobblestone really brought the NYC feel all the way home. In terms of the 1460 boots, I decided to go with a color (Cherry Red Smooth) that would make my outfit pop and add some character.

Two favorite features of this boot:

1. The soft sheen really brings out the cherry color

2. The boots are lightweight and can be worn year round

WSP x Movado by Brandon Bryant

Hey guys hope all is well. Super excited to show you all some of the new content that I am working on. Today’s post is all about the watch. A watch is a strong complement piece to your wardrobe and can tell a lot about your personality from afar. Today’s watch of choice is the Heritage Series Calendoplan Chronograph from Movado

Movado is a Swiss watch company that has a rich history that dates back over 100 plus years. It’s most notably known for its historic Museum dial that traces back to artists from the modern design movement in the early 1900’s.

Now onto the outfit. I decided to focus on a look that is perfect for the hottest days during the summer. In NYC during July and August the heat can be 90+ degrees, so thought it would be helpful to shed some light on how to look good in the heat. So the outfit is pretty simple; chambray shirt, swimming trunks (protip - always feel free to wear trunks as shorts!!), white sneakers and of course a staple time piece that can elevate the outfit.

My favorite features about this watch:

  1. Chronograph

  2. Keeps date, day and seconds

  3. Rose Gold casing

  4. Brown leather Strap

  5. Very versatile and compliments my wardrobe

  6. Watch face is just the right size (43 mm) for my wrist

WSP x Frank Wright by Brandon Bryant

Hey guys hope all is well. This is my first blog post on the new and improved website. Super excited to show you all some of the new content that I am working on. Today’s post is all about the shoes. I took a stroll down to the west village for brunch in my new Frank Wright casual dress shoes.

Frank Wright is a heritage British footwear brand that has a history that dates back over 100 years. My shoe of choice in the photography above are the Marvin style which are considered brogues.

This summer I have put a focus on dressing down all of my suit jackets and slacks with modern dress shoes. With this pair it still gives a strong office vibe and you can also wear them out in the evening with friends for dinner. Versatility is key for me when thinking about adding new footwear to my collection. My favorite part of these brogues is the contemporary cleated sole that give it that casual appeal that can be used for work or play. I decided to styled the Marvin’s with a green plaid jacket, chambray button down shirt, black knit tie with some olive cropped pants. 

Let me know your thoughts on the shoes and outfit, until next time!

Happy 2017! Over the past few years men have increasingly paid more attention to personal style and now its time to focus on personal grooming.

I teamed up with the good folks over at The Art of Shaving for the launch of their new fragrance collection. I decided to go with a modern gentleman vibe for this partnership. So I threw on a suit & tie and made sure to play a bit with the colors and patterns to bring out some character.

First, a little history on the brand. The Art of Shaving is a brand with lots of history, 20 years to be exact. As a leading men’s grooming brand they have a mission to help elevate the grooming experience for men from a chore to an enjoyable ritual. The brand initially started from a small shop here in Manhattan and has since grown to a robust collection of over 150 male-focused luxury retail shops across the country.

Now, lets talk about the fragrances. I had the chance to test drive five different scents and the two I enjoyed most were the Oud Suede and Green Lavender. The Oud Suede has a deep wood smell that I believe is good for a night out on the town or dinner with your significant other. The Green Lavender had an herbal tone to it and could be worn both day and night or for work and play.

Blogger Pro Tip: Feel free to blend scents together to get an elevated and unique scent. My suggestion is to blend the Green Lavender with Vetiver Citron. These two scents blend well, the sharp lavender and refreshing orange of the Green Lavender blend well with the smoky vetiver and sweet lemon of the Vetiver Citron.

Well now that you guys have had the chance to visually experience and hear more about the new fragrances be sure to go check them out for yourself (here)

Thank you as always for reading and let me know your thoughts on my outfit today and on the fragrances when you try them out.

Suiting, Dress Shirt, Tie, Dress Shoes: Hugo Boss

Hey guys, hope you’re doing well. Excited to show an awesome partnership I just finished up with GQ and Hugo Boss. It was a cool intimate in-store event with GQ Stylist Brett Fahlgren and NY Giants Running Back Rashad Jennings.

The event had a small Q&A between Brett and Rashad who discussed fashion in sports and also Rashad's humble beginnings on the football field. Rashad had a very heart touching story of how he was able to get his first shot to play in a football game in high school. He was a 4th string running back at the time and his high school team was playing their arch rivals for the last game of the season. As the story goes on we find out that all three other running backs get injured and then the coach had no choice but to put Rashad into the game. His first play ended up being a 30 yard TD run. Before the game was over Rashad went on to score 2 TD's on offense and 2 TD's on defense for a total of 4 TD's. That was the start of his now illustrious football career.

After Q&A the event focused on the new mix and match suit separates Hugo Boss was releasing. If you take a look at a few of the pictures above you can see some of the new collection.

Well that’s all for now, let me know your thoughts. Talk soon!
