ASAP Rocky looking F R E S H…

Decked head-to-toe in Celine and Bottega Veneta on the way to his premiere of Stockholm Syndrome, a documentary he made about getting arrested in Sweden. Definitely need to watch this one.

Cop or drop?

Seeing some interesting (and fantastic) pieces float around the internet right now so I wanted to share here and see if you’d cop or drop. What do we think?

  1. The rope waisted denim jacket — Old Joe

  2. Casablanca Paris’s new seasonal resort-wear (all silk everything). Not available yet.

  3. The painted shirtBode NYC

  4. The convertible button pants — TOMBOGO

A box of surprises

If you’re on the hunt for quality athleisure, I’d highly recommend trying Olivers’ Mystery Box campaign.

It’s pretty simple:
1. Pay $150 to get a box of products worth $300 value
2. Pay $275 to get a box of products worth $600 value.

Each box is randomized with an assortment of tees, pants, sweats, and accessories. Ends July 7th.

Get on it!

Ralph Lauren & Team USA have had a nice run; who’s next?

Saw this tweet earlier and it got me thinking…

Ralph’s been at the helm for many years (his original contract was 2008-2020). Given the contract is up, it’s dawned on me how unready we are to let Ralph go and move on to another designer.

Even this list, which has brands I admire (Todd, Sid, RB), I don’t believe we’re ready to pass the torch just yet, even if we must. Though, if anyone could be the next in line, it’s Todd Snyder.

A lost art

There really is an elegance to rocking jewelry while playing sports. But it’s a lost art these days. It used to be a thing in the 70s, 80s, and 90s until the Football Federation banned wearing jewelry outright. It’s a shame because players look way cooler with it on. Shouts guys at L’etiquette Magazine for digging up these photos from the archives.

The retro football jerseys are kinda dope too.

Have a nice weekend✌️☕️
