…The more they stay the same. For as long as I can remember, my mom would always make me drink tea at the end of my day. It didn’t matter if I came from school, or work – Tea was something that she wired into my system. Growing up in a South Asian household, you’re expected to drink tea everywhere you go, and if you don’t, it’s considered an insult! lol That was almost two decades ago. Fast forward to 2016 where almost everything is instant, disposable and temporary; I still make a piping hot cup of tea at the end of my day. The point is, there are some traditions that are timeless. Trends will always come and go, but there are certain styles that will stand the test of time. Case in point: Titan JUXT, Engineered by HP. The main reason I’m a fan of this watch is that it blends the classic styling of a timepiece with the technology of a smartwatch. It instantly synced up to my email, calendar, contacts and social media so I get push notifications on directly on my wrist. All of this wrapped in a classic, elegant face that you can suit up in. Ladies, if you looking for a gift idea… View Post
A few days ago, I posted this picture with some advice on where/how to buy flowers for your significant other. The post was filled with tons of people tagging their bf/gfs asking to “take notes”. I should have taken notes my damn self before doling out the tips, because lo and behold – I was not able to get my wife any flowers. I wasn’t able to get her a gift either. In fact we barely made dinner. None of this was for lack of trying, it was just a series of extremely unfavorable circumstances.
It’s Valentine’s week! Seeing as how bae day is right around the corner, it’s only right that I show you guys this super fly, super pink “Love” sweatsuit by 5ivepillars. Please just look at how dope this hoodie/sweatpant combo is! The hoodie reads “Love” in arabic and the pants have the number 5 written on them. I’ve worn this outfit out, and people have some STRONG opinions about it. They will either ask “omg where did you get that from?” or “why are you wearing a pink jumpsuit?” Lol we don’t need to worry about the latter, we’re on another wave with this one! The hat is by Atif Ateeq. “Pyaar” – as you probably guessed – means Love in Urdu. It comes in heather grey, but he just released a limited edition red version of this hat for Valentine’s day. Check it out! Also, if you guys are not following me on snapchat, get it together people! Add me right now: WaseemStark.
Reporting live from Buenos Aires this afternoon. Hope everybody’s week is going well! Having lived in tourist-heavy cities for the better part of my life, I’ve always been extra cautious to not look like one when I travel abroad. As much as I appreciate the camera around the neck with a Yankees hat combo, I try my best to not stick out like the loud American that I know I am.
Enter Frank & Oak. Their timing on this collaboration could not have been more perfect. I was looking for some fall pieces to throw in my suitcase and they just launched their Fall collection. Pretty sure everyone’s favorite season is Fall. Something about the warmer tones, and being able to layer with different fabrics, it’s just a great season for men. I’ve been looking for the perfect pair of chinos and these are it! You can tell just by grabbing them out of the box that these aren’t your cheaply made, disposable chinos. These bad boys have some weight to them! The fit is clinically perfect and the color is versatile enough to dress it up or down. I’ve paired them here with a tee from Frank & Oak, a denim jacket and some Adidas Stan Smiths.… View Post
My obsession with the 1920s knows no boundaries. I loved everything about that decade. The culture, the music, and most importantly, the fashion. Suits were not just for weddings, they were the daily uniform. And they weren’t the boring suits that you see today; Broad shoulders, wide lapels, bold colors were the norm. And um, people actually made time to read the paper. Squad goals for real, you guys.
Fortunately, there has been a renaissance of the modern gentleman within the past year with the return of the double breasted suit. You probably saw Danny Tanner and Michael Jordan rock these in the 90s, which turned off an entire generation from wearing them. Fortunately, the new wave of DB suits are much more fitted and streamlined.
