First image of Wifey has surfaced at SDCC! Gal Gadot is looking good in the WW garments. Definitely has a Xena feel, but I ain’t mad. I do wonder if Jim Lee’s pants would have been better? But it depends on the story I suppose? At any rate, I’m excited! What do you think?

JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

July 20, 2014

Today is a day of rest so I’ll keep it short in honor of the bug guy, but just because you’re chilling doesn’t mean you can’t do it in style! Personally I’m hitting a coffee shop, maybe check out 12th & Broad ‘s “Waterpalooza” over at the Farmer’s Market, and then I’m swinging by to see the parentals.

Despite popular belief, I own more types of shoes than just Cole Haans. LoL The key to today’s fit are the kicks that every man should own at least one pair of… the iconic Converse All-Star Chuck Taylor’s!

image

image

They really have an uncanny way of bringing an outfit to life! Especially the lows paired with shorts. Largely because they accentuate the legs which most males have strong legs. The rest, well… they say “a picture is worth a thousand words” so here are a few. God bless.

JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

July 11, 2014

I’ve made my DECISION… I’m headed to Soho’ (Green Hills) today fellas’! I have to pick up some money which is always good LoL and then I’m going to stop by Cole Haan to check out the new Zerogrands (Follow me on Twitter & IG for some of that action)!

image

I see you lookin’ at my kicks homie! LoL Just my Nike Flyknit Chukka here! Nothing to see. Going with the blue. I want to compare these feather weight champs to the Zerogrands. I’m wearing socks, sheesh, relax! LoL  $200

image

Rockin’ my BGR stonewash blue, skinny jeans from Urban Outfitters again because well… they’re super and they connect my kicks to my shirt. It’s not about perfect matches it’s about BALANCE! $30

image

image

The “devil is in the details” here. H&M shirt from Texas. One of my favorites because of the loose crew neck. Helps to keep you COOL! $20

Well, as a wise Pig once said, “That’s all folks!” #JPSKILLZStyleTip

JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

YO YO!  What’s good fellas’!  You didn’t think I forgot about you did ya’!?  Of course not!  Well I’m feeling a bit claustr0phobic and if you are a fellow Creative then you know exactly what I mean.  It’s good to get out & get away from the home office for a bit’ to help cultivate some new creativity.  So I’m just going to hit a coffee shop for a bit, but that doesn’t mean you step out looking raggedy!

IMG_20140709_143220

IMG_20140709_143529

Going with the Free Runs today.  Mostly because of all the Free Run talk & creativity that’s been going on lately especially yesterday’s release of Cole Haan‘s new ZeroGrands!  These are light weight & will get the job done.  No socks!   $Free .99 (Thanks Coach!)

IMG_20140709_143336

IMG_20140709_143417

Then I’m sportin’ my Mossimo cargos from Target!  You know how comfortable their shirts are?  WELL JUST IMAGINE THAT COMFORT ON YOUR LEGS!  LoL  I love these britches!  LoL  Put a slight roll in the cuffs tho’.  Remember, “Skin is in” fellas.  The wrist & ankles are where this mainly applies to us.  You don’t want to roll too high or too low.  You want to find a nice middle ground.  You see how I rolled the left leg just a smidge higher than the right yet it changes the look completely?  $20

IMG_20140709_144137

For my torso I’m going with my Converse T’!  Also from Target! C’mon, you know Target has everything.  LoL  This shirt is my favorite T’.  It just feels so amazing on the body!  Feel good, look good ;) The grayish, white tone balances the kicks & pants.  $10

Finally you know we have to EXCESSories!  Rockin’ the rosary today.  Keep Calm… it’s just a piece of plastic.  The rosary takes a casual look and gives it a lil’ spice.  You have to know when and when not to use it.  And of course my daily driver, I may stop mentioning it because I wear it so often, my black, Kenneth Cole, all touch watch.

THAT’S IT!  “Go and love young man… go and love.”  #JPSKILLZStyleTip #BikeSelfieNashville

JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day: 4th of July Edition!

July 4, 2014

IMG_00000498

Well a laundry mat (parent’s house), a free meal, and a pair of clean BR’ shorts later and here we are again!  But this time it’s different!  This time… IT’S THE 4th of JULY!!!  * Que the fireworks * Today I’m going into the heart of the city, where there “ain’t no love”…. huh, huh, anybody?  Of course not and where there will be the best fireworks display in the country second only to New York City– “NEW YORK CITY!?”  Yes New York City.  I’m also going to stop by the Frist which is giving free admission to those who wear red, white, & you guessed it, blue.  So as always I need to be CPF’ (Cool, Presentable, & Functional)!

IMG_20140704_134208

No shoe embodies the city life better than the iconic Cole Haan Lunargrands!  Hell, I’d go as far as to say that ain’t nothin’ more American than Lunargrands!  Well, maybe hot dogs?  But the Lunargrand Wingtips are the epitome of Dressy meets Sporty meets Casual.  Ya’ll know me fellas’ and I swear by my Lunars.  I decided to pull my navy blues for obvious reasons.  No socks, as if I ever wear any, and I’m rockin’ my regular navy laces (the Lunargrands come with 2 sets) because you don’t want to overdue it.  These will keep me Stylish no doubt, but definitely comfortable as I’m going to be on my feet all day!  All I have to worry about are people downtown stepping on my “BLUE SUEDE SHOES!?”  Huh?  Tough crowd.  $200

IMG_20140704_134440

Rockin’ the Banana Republic (BR’) shorts again and with good reason.  They are in the red family, but not red red.  Closer to a maroon actually, but this is the point I want you to get fellas’.  You don’t have to rock Royal Blue & perfect Red just because it’s a holiday.  You end up really looking like Captain America!  LoL  No, you want to keep it grown & sexy so simply downplay the colors as if you woke up & just happen to throw it on.  It works both ways though because it’s just enough to say, “Hey, I’m celebrating too and I’m proud to be an American.”  Or get in free at the Frist… whatever, the point is don’t over do it.

IMG_20140704_134728

IMG_20140704_134528

Aaahhh, the V-Neck.  A fashion forward man’s best friend.  It can be used in so many ways!  Today it will simply be a needed color on the color wheel.  To me V-Necks are much more comfortable than Crews & since Jordan eliminated that nagging tag they’re damn near perfect!  They even make them in a Slim fit now!  Which are the ones I rock.  According to your style you can choose which works best for your body type, but please, Please, PLEASE fellas’… no DRESSES!

IMG_20140704_144711

AND YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!

IMG_00000501

Here’s my lil’ secret: I always rock a wife beater’ under my T’ so that all the sweat gets trapped in the beater’ instead of the shirt.  Sweat spots are just not a good look!  I don’t care how hot it is!  Plus you can always take your T’ off if the moment calls for it!  That’s that FUNCTIONALITY that I preach about ;) $20 (Pack of T’s & Tanks)

IMG_00000502

IMG_00000503

IMG_20140704_145341

Time for the “EXCESSories!”  Just my army belt (doesn’t have to be blue, just has to have the proper theme) and my Kenneth Cole watch again!  Helps refine the look and make it less playful.

IMG_00000528

WELP!  I hope you enjoyed this special edition of the #JPSKILLZStyleTip and MAY THE 4th BE WITH YOU!!!  AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!!!

Happy Thursday to you!  Headed back into the city to sketch again because I just can’t get enough and obviously I’m a glutton for punishment.  LoL  But I am and I’m definitely gonna need to be CPF!  That’s right!  COOL, PRESENTABLE, & FUNCTIONAL!  Busting out my “RETRO” fit today!

IMG_20140703_121114

“It’s gotta’ be da’ shoes!?”  As they use to say in the 90s when “His Airness” would take flight!  Well, this is why I’m going with my blue “Ones” today!  You know the drill, no socks!  The Nike Lunar Flynit Chukka need no extra baggage & will definitely keep me CPF! ;) $200

IMG_20140703_121407

IMG_20140703_121633

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist or Michael Kors to tell you that blue & khaki go together like peanut butter & jelly!  Sorry guys, I’m a bit hungry.  But they do!  Had to go with my old Target “Nobo”cargos, you know the ones I warned you about yesterday? I haven’t washed my BR’ shorts in days & they’re beginning to look like it :(  So I had to go to my older shorts.  Remember fellas’, Men’s Style takes time.  I’m still overhauling my wardrobe as well.  See, despite popular belief, I’m not perfect either (that was a joke… wow… tough crowd).  So what do you do?  You IMPROVISE!  I simply threw on my favorite fatigue belt (AUTHENTIC/DAD’s: I told you our Style takes time) and tightened up the waist to slim out the shorts.  For you youngsters out there, I don’t know if you know this, but the BELT was actually designed to keep your pants UP!  I KNOW RIGHT!?  One revelation at a time.  $15

IMG_00000460

IMG_00000464

And then there’s the crown jewel!  The creme’ de la creme’!  If you will!  The RETRO AIR JORDAN TANK!!!  This is NOT a remake people!  It was actually my older broth… well… I’m not sure if my… OTHER… knows I have it so we’ll just keep that between you and I KAPEESH!?  Any who, the splash of blue connects the eyes back to the kicks & back then Jordan still rocked Nike insignia on his apparel making this the perfect top for a pair of sick Nikes such as my “Ones!”  Plus this top is obviously great for hot weather! $FREE .99

IMG_00000465

As for the EXCESSories!  Rockin’ the Kenneth Cole black touch watch again today!  Definitely my go to driver!  It refines my outfits which feeds perfectly into my Personal Style.  Remember, it’s not what you wear it’s how you wear it.

IMG_00000473(1)

Well until next time gentleman… and ladies, don’t want to be rude, hold it down like I’m trying to do this basketball while maintaining my balance for this last shot!  LoL  PEACE!  #BikeSelfieNashville #JPSKILLZStyleTip
