The makingz of a great dresser doesn't start with an abundance of clothing. It starts with being able to be versitile with key peices and creating workz of art by mixing and matching. In thiz segment I uze my favorite style consious DJ Cassidy az an example. Thiz gent alwayz lookz hiz best when doing hiz 2010 jay gatsby look. For a hugo boss party he dawnz and all yellow outfit including hiz pattented yellow cardigan, yellow polo, yellow shortz, and a tan brim with a yellow hat band. Succh a lively ensamble for what could be a dry event. Then in another frame, conveying a lively yet down played look he pairz the same hat with a yellow polo same az the hat band, with a classic greenwich ct preppy sweater and hiz favorite white adidas's. The keey iz to maximize itemz and colorz by creating new outfitz with old itemz.
MAN THESE TOOK ME BACK TO MY MIDDLE SCHOOL DAYZ AT EAST ROCK. A LOT OF HARD TIMEZ BUT A BROTHA GOT THROUGH EM. MAN I LOOKED SO YOUNG!!! LOL! BUT AZ FAR AZ MY STUNT GAME TRUST ME I'VE BEEN KILLIN EM FOR YEARZ. BUT TO BE HONEST IN MIDDLE SCHOOL THEY NEVER GAVE ME CREDIT FOR NOTHIN (LIL RICHARD VOICE LOL!). BUT I LEARNED NO MATTER WHAT THE MASSEZ THOUGHT I GOTTA KEEP DOING MY THING. MAN I REMEMBER THIZ NIGHT LIKE IT WAZ YESTERDAY. THEY STARTED OUT THE NIGHT PLAYIN THE BACKSTREET BOYS, WHITNEY HOUSTON AND ENDED THE NIGHT BUMPIN EVERYTHING FROM BEANIE MAN TO NAS!! IT'Z FUNNY THINKING ABOUT THE DIRECTION OF WHERE ALL OF UZ IN THIZ PIC ENDED UP.
YESTERDAY I DECIDED TO HIT THEM WITH A LITTLE MORE REFINED COOL. I USUALLY HIT EM WITH OUTLANDISH JUNK. EVEN WHEN I GO CASUAL WITH VEST, SCARF, SHIRT, TIE AND HAT, IT'S STILL ON SOME OUT OF THIZ WORLD JUNK!!! BUT THIZ LOOK IZ WHAT I LIKE TO CALL THE CONSERVITIVE MILT-FRESH. REALLY THIZ IZ AZ CONSERVITIVE AZ I GET. STILL A HINT OF FLASHINESS WITH THE PLAID SHIRT, AND THE PAISLEY TIE, STRIPED KANGOL COMBO. BUT THE VEST, PINSTRIPED DASHIKI SUIT, AND STACY ADAMS KINGSMAN SPECTATORS MELLOW IT OUT WITH A MORE CLASSIC FEEL. I'M STILL OUTLANDISH THOUGH, ITZ IN MY BLOOD STREAM!!!! LOL!!!!

When I see a member of Diplomats, dip-set, byrd-gang, skull gang (or whatever they call themselevez) dressed to the nines in a suit, it alwayz surprisez me. I mean it waz just five yearz ago that cam'ron, Jim jones, and Juelz santana Landblasted Jay-z for wearing button down shirtz and so called dressing like the white man in a suit and tie. Here we have Dip-set's official leader cam'ron who since 2001 has been noted as one of hip-hop's style Icon's and personally one of my favoritez az well. He became notorious for dawning the color pink, in hiz wardrobe and started a huuuuuuuugggggggeeeeeee trend of it in 2003-04. There are many that did pink befor him, however know one did it in abundance quite like him. So with that being said, itz safe to say Cam iz no stranger to getting fly. But when we get into him wearing a suit, thatz a different matter. I have to say I love thiz look cam iz dawning in thiz pic. The suit remindz me of something Tom Ford would create. Many would hate on the blue pocadot tie with the dress shirt but it rockz. That look would be killer in Soho, not so much Harlem. For the most part thiz outfit doezn't look bad on Cam, however knowing cam'z nature it kinda feelz like thiz waz the stylistz taste and not of hiz own choice. He'z also giving off the vibe that he'z not thrilled about wearing the suit. lol!!! but I still give it a 8.

I LOVED THE YELLOW TOUCHEZ IN R-KELLY'Z OUTFIT IN THIZ VIDEO. YELLOW SHOEZ, YELLOW TIE, EVEN THE YELLOW DU-RAG. CAN'T FRONT EVEN I UZED TO WEAR A DU-RAG UNDER MY FEDORA'Z AND CIRTAIN WIDE BRIM HATZ IN 2004. BUT IT WAZ WILD HOW THIZ VIDEO TURNED THE WHOLE WORLD ONTO A CULTURE THAT PEOPLE WEREN'T FAMILIAR TO. SPECIALLY AROUND THE TIME JAY-Z WAZ USHERING IN THE WHOLE GROWN AND SEXY MOVEMENT. SO EVERYBODY WAZ TRYING TO CAPITALIZE ON THE ART OF BEING SUAVE AND COOL. NOT JUST GRINDING ON THEZE BIRD'Z BUT ACTUALLY PUTTING CLASSIC STEPZ AND MOVEMENT INTO IT. OUTSIDE OF R-KELLY'Z LEGAL ISSUEZ, HE'Z ALWAYZ BEEN ONE OF MY FAVORITE DRESSERZ IN THE MUSIC BIZ. HE EMBODIED WHAT A TRUE CHI-TOWN PLAYA WAZ ABOUT!!! HOUZE ON THE HILL , TO DID YOU EVER WITH NAZ WHERE HE HAD THE WHITE SUIT WITH THE BRIM AND THE SKELL CAP UNDERNEATH, ROBERT KELLY HAZ PROVED TO BE ONE OF THE FLYEST R&B DUDEZ IN THE GAME!
ITZ BEEN DECADEZ SINCE SLAVERY AND MANY OF MY RACE ARE STILL BOUND DOWN BY MENTAL OPPRESSION. THE SAD PART ABOUT IT IZ NOT ONLY ARE THEY ALLOWING THEMSELVEZ TO BE OPPRESSED, THEY FEEL THE STATE THAT THEY'RE IN IZ ACCEPTABLE. BUT IN A WORLD OF CLONEZ I REFUZE TO BE CHAINED TO THE MODERN DAY IDEOLOGIEZ, OPINIONZ, BELEIFZ, AND THOUGHTZ OF MENTALLY ENSLAVED PEOPLE. MY MIND BROKE FREE YEARZ AGO. I FEEL LIKE ADAM AND EVE IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN SEEING THE TRUTH FOR THE FIRST TIME. HOWEVER, INSTEAD OF SINNING AGAINST GOD, I ONLY SEE WHAT HE'Z BEEN TRYING TO TELL ME ALL ALONG.

IN MY OPINION NEW EDITION PERFORMZ THEIR SHOWZ LOOKING SLICK AND CRISP IN SHARP SUITZ AND MEN'Z BRIMZ. MUCH LOVE TO THEIR STYLIST, JUST FOR THE SIMPLE FACT THAT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN EAZY TO BUY SOME ED HARDY SHIRTZ AND JEANZ JUST TO HAVE THEM FIT IN WITH TODAY'Z TRENDY SCENE. BUT THIZ IZ A GROUP THAT HAZ A SPECIFIC CORE AUDIANCE THAT ALREADY KNOWZ THEM FROM THEIR DAYZ OF RIDING AROUND ON MOPEDZ WITH THE 90'Z NEW JACK SWING LOOK. WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOUR ALL ABOUT YOU CAN MAKE THEZE TYPE OF MOVEZ, RATHER THAN HAVING TO COMPETE WITH THEZE YOUNG R&B CATZ OUT NOW.
GREAT FOR THOZE CASUAL EVENINGZ IN THE FALL OR HEAVY WINTER. MAYBE A DRESS SHIRT ,TIE, BLACK DRESS PANTS. BLACK BAILY BRIM HAT, GREAT CRAZY WITH THE FOOTWEAR MAYBE SOME BRUTINI POINTED TOEZ TO KILL IT!!! I LOVE PUTTING TOGETHER OUTFITZ!!!! LOL!!!

I get many fanz of my blog that continuously ask me about Impulse sneakers and what harbor footwear has unstore for the fall of 2010. And to be honest Impulse iz going to destroy the market with their latest dezignz. Whatz great about thiz brand iz that they're able to appeal to a wide variety of consumerz. For the individuals who want to go lowkey fresh you have the second and third pairz. But for thoze who want to be scene and recognized the black, grey and red croc print are the jointz for you. All of these are my favorite, however my first love out of the fall collection are the P12330 jointz in grey, black, and red. Thoze are going to move mountainz when released!!!
