NYC's Spring Palette

Spring is officially here but sadly, it seems some places have not received the memo! NYC is one of those places, so here we are, yearning warmer weather but having to still wear our winter gear. I've found a few pieces that will help you during these days of climatic uncertainty. For starters, I found this rich blue windbreaker from Robert Graham, the perfect extra layer during spring. This winter  season, turtlenecks have been the MVP and the grey ribbed turtleneck from Life After Denim is keeping me nice and warm even during spring. If you are looking for a cap to add to your collection Gents always has a wide variety. I love this wool stripe one that gives me that extra bit of warmth on the old noggin.

Step right this way- Gola sneakers to take you around town.

VMan 37 Return of the Male Supermodel

Bruce Weber has photographed some of the most notable names in the world. You can see his work in GQ, Vanity Fair, Interview, Rolling Stone and ad campaigns for Calvin Klein, Montcler, and Ralph Lauren to name a few. Bruce Weber partnered with VMan's EIC Stephen Gan and picked four up and coming  and sought after male models Jules Horn, Carson Aldridge, Jacob Hankin, and Jake Lahrman to grace the covers of VMan 37. He explains, "[Stephen Gan] and I were talking about this idea of photographing models again versus personalities, and I was kind of sad that people don't do more models." These guys are much more than just pretty faces. You'll see alongside the feature what their outside occupations are as these guys are more than meet the eye. They're occupations differ greatly, one of them is a high school student, another a hockey player while one is a tv producer and the other a nuclear mechanic.

Jake Lahrman at Re:Quest explains how he feels to be working with Bruce Weber, "I feel more than blessed to have such an amazing and talented person like Bruce in my life, so to be able to work with him this much is more than a pleasure. Bruce and I connect through the lens of the camera. He explained to me that when he looks at me through the lens of the camera he can feel all my emotions and see all the hard times and troubles that I've been through. To have a connection with someone so talented and successful is beyond a privilege."

A Day With Lady Liberty

I've lived in New York City for about 15 years, boy time flies! Never had I visited the Statue of Liberty. One of my goals for this year is to take advantage of this wonderful city. With everything happening in the political arena more than ever this symbol of liberty stands out as a beacon on what this country was built upon. Guys, if you ever have the chance go to this National Park, marvel at the view of downtown New York City and of this national symbol of liberty.
