FOR MY NEW READERZ IT'Z BEETER IF I EXPLANE THIZ TO YOU. TWO YEARZ AGO I WAZ RAPPING AT AN OPEN MIC NIGHT (MOB TV VOL 4, FIND IT ON YOUTUBE) AND I SAID A LINE,YOU ROCKIN JORDANZ BUT MIKE DON'T EVEN DRESS LIKE YOU. MEANING THAT WHEN YOU SEE MICHEAL JORDAN HE'Z ALWAYZ DRESSED TO THE NINEZ. EVEN WHEN HE'Z CASUAL HE HAZ AN ELEGANCE. BUT THE PEOPLE WHO BUY HIZ SNEAKERZ ARE PEOPLE WHO AT TIMEZ LOOK AT ME WILD WHEN BECAUZE I CHOOZE TO GET DRESSED EVERYDAY. NOT REALIZING THE PERSON WHOZE IMAGE IZ ENGRAVED ON THE TINGUE OF A MILLION SNEAKERZ IZ A REFINED GENTLEMAN WHOZE GROSSING SALERY OFF OF THE SNEAKERZ THAT HIT THE STREETZ IN EVERY HOOD ACROSS THE WORLD, IZ BEING INVESTED INTO OTHER VAST AREAZ. WHICH MANY TIMEZ YOU NEED A SUIT TO OPERATE IN THEM. I MEAN EVEN ON JORDAN'Z DOWN DAY WHEN HAVE YOU SEEN HIM IN WILD LOOKIN ED HARDY JEANZ WITH HIZ PANTZ SAGGING!!!! BUT ITZ HARD GETTING THE LOST TO SEE THIZ MINDSET. PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND EVERY DOLLAR THATZ PUT INTO BUYING A PAIR OF JORDANZ YOU'VE HELPED PURCHASE FIVE MORE SUITZ FOR HIM TO WEAR. WHEN I SAY THAT PEOPLE THINK I'M TALKING ABOUT THE CAPITALIST ASPECT. NO, I'M TALKING ABOUT WHERE HIZ TASTE LEVEL LIEZ IN TERMZ OF ASPIRATION. WHEN A HOOD DUDE GETZ MONEY, HE BUYZ A PAIR OF J'Z. WHEN JORDAN FEELZ LIKE BUYIING,HE BUYZ A SUIT OR A CAR. ON A HOOD DUDEZ OFF DAY HE MAY BASKETBALL FOR RECREATION. ON JORDAN'Z DAY OF RECREATION HE PLAYZ GOLF. SEE ABOUT ASPIRING FOR GREATNESS ANDNOT THE OBVIOUZ. ITZ ONE THING TO BUY INTO SOMEONE ELSEZ INFLUENCE, ITZ ANOTHER TO BE MOTIVATED TO MAKE AN IMPACT WITH YOUR OWN INFLUENCE.

If you've followed my blog more than three yearz you would know i'm a huge fan of Men's Express. I've been down with the brand since I waz in the 8th grade when it waz originally Structure(you can check back to my postz that I did on Express itemz, plus the post on Express vs Structure). Az a huge follower of their dezignz I love to collect their itemz such az button down shirtz, sweaterz, and sweater vestz. For the upcoming seazon, Express haz decided to go full steam ahead with their Military lookz. Meaning Military style Jackectz, fitted Military fitted shirtz and ect. They're kinda of shying away from that whole rocka and Roll, hipster preppy vibe that they carried for three yearz straight. When I walked into Many of their storez you could tell that waz the direction of where their brand waz going during the Aprl and May of 2010. Now what i'm really Amped to see iz the impact that their whole military influuence iz going to have on their Sweaterz. Theze two sweaterz up above are just a taste of whatz to come from the brand. I love it becauze theze sweaterz have that of a peacoat feel. My favorite would have to be the double breasted Military sweater in the first Pic. But thezehave the power to beso versitile. For my personal taste I already know i'm going to wear them underneath my dashiki suitz. But I also plan to wear them seperatly with my scarf, dress pantz, and shoez style with a wide brim. I can't wait til theze hit Express in the fall.

WHAT'Z FuZzN WORLD? ITZ MILT-FRESH HERE TO TALK TO YOU GUYZ. I DON'T GET TO DO MUCH OF IT BECAUZE USUALLY I'M ON THE GO. ITZ POST A PIC HERE AND POST!!! BUT I FEEL I'M ROBBING MY READERZ OF THAT REAL INTROSPECTIVE THOUGHT PROCESS THAT MAKEZ THIZ THE MILT-FRESH EXPERIENCE. FIRST OFF I'M BACK FROM MY SO CALLED VACATION TO NORTH CAROLINA. I SAW A LOT AND LEARNED A LOT. SPEANT MY TIME SHAKING MY HEAD A LOT. FOUND TIMEZ WHEN EVEN FAMILY WILL TURN THEIR BACKZ ON YOU!!! A VERY COLD EXPERIENCE. LOOK AT THIZ PICTURE AND THE HEADLINE YOU ARE LOOKING AT AN INDIVIDUAL WHO HAZ HAD TO WALK ALONE A LOT OF TIMEZ IN HIZ LIFE. IN THIZ CASE SIT ALONE. PEOPLE ALIENATE THEMSELVEZ BECAUZE OF WHATEVER DEEP SEEDED ISSUEZ OR WHAT HAVE YOU. MANY PEOPLE JUST COULDN'T UNDERSTAND MY WALK OR WHAT MY VISION IZ, WAZ, AND WILL ALWAYZ BE. BUT LATER THEY COME UP MONTHZ AND YEARZ LATER TALKING ABOUT THEY FINALLY GOT IT!!! I JUST LOOK AT SAYIN TO MYSELF "YOU BUNCH OF SUCKAZ". ITZ JUST SCARY THAT THERE ARE TOWNZ AND CITIEZ WITH PEOPLE THAT ARE STILL BLIND OR NOT RECEPTIVE TO THINGZ AND CULTUREZ THAT ARE DIFFERENT. BUT WITH EVERY BIT OF STRENGTH IN MY BODY I HAVE TO CONTINUE TO EDUCATE THEM ONE STITCH AT A TIME. HATE IZ SOMETHING THAT I'VE GROWN TO LIVE WITH. I DON'T ACCEPT IT. BECAUZE THE MOMENT ONE ACCEPTZ IT, BECOMEZ OK FOR PEOPLE TO WALK THROUGH LIFE HATING ON ONE ANOTHER. AND LIFE DOEZN'T HAVE TO BE THIZ WAY. WE CAN ALL MAKE STRIDEZ AND CHANGEZ WITH IN OURSELVEZ STARTING WITH OUR THOUGHT PROCESS. EVERY MOVEMENT THAT IZ CARRIED OUT STARTED WITH A THOUGHT PROCESS GENERATED BY A CONVICTION OR FEELING. IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE ISSUEZ OF THE WORL YOU HAVE TO START WITH A FEELING. YOU WANT TO TAKE GUNZ OFF THE STREETZ IT STARTZ BY CHANGING THE THOUGHT PROCESS BEHIND WHY YOU CARRY THAT GUN. IDK MAYBE I JUST SEE THE WORLD DIFFERENT. CALL ME CRAZY, WELL I'VE BEEN CALLED WORST. THAT HAZ TO BE THE MOST PROFOUND VERSE LIL WAYNE HAZ SPAT IN HIZ CAREER. IT APPLIEZ TO ME ON SOOOOOOO MANY DIFFERENT LEVELZ. WELL GUYZ I MUST GO. IT WON'T BE THE LAST TIME I SPEAK DIRECTLY TO YOU. JUST HAD SOME THOUGHTZ TO GET OFF MY CHEST. GOD BLESS YOU.
THERE WE GO BIG SHAQ!!!!! One of the Best dressed men in the NBA in my book. Recently shaq haz been spotted sporting the revived bow-tie look to many eventz including hiz press conference inucting him az a member of the celtics. Many NBA playerz have been seen sporting bow-tie'z and yez it iz the men'z acccessory to wear to show people that your a refined gentleman yada!!!!! yada!!!!! yada!!!!!! I will save the conversation about every man needing to own a bow-tie for a different post!! Thank you Mr. Benley for bringin Bow-tie'z back az a staple in a well dressed man'z wardrobe. Back to Big shaq, I love how he'z able to incorperate the bow-tie into hiz impecable selection of suitz. Even though haz one many awardz for hiz sartorial capabilitiez, he'z also caught the rap for being one of the NBA player'z who suit it old school player style. When the Steve Harvey/cedric the entertainer 4 or 5 button suit jokez come up, you'll most deffinetly see shaq'z name come up some where in the conversation. But let'z be real with ourselvez, I don't care what tailor you get half of theze NBA playerz look bad in Bespoke tailoring. There are some area'z of a man'z body that don't need to be highlighted. And bespoke tailored suitz show everything, especially when you don't have the body for it. A gentleman with Shaq'z large frame and stature automaically lookz great in the hated "four button" suit becauze of how they are crafted to hang and fit the body. Even though that the suitz shaq iz wearing in theze photoz aren't of the sort, they still carry the free form flowiing movement of the particular player vibe. I mean you can tell by the wide leg pantz. And the bow-tie matched with thiz suit bringz much more class to an already perfect outfit. Much success to you shaq in the upcoming season.
DURING THIZ SUMMER I SLOWED UP ON A LOT OF THE OVER ACCESSIVE ABUNDANCE OF SHOPPING THAT I'M KNOWN FOR!!! I TRIED TO MAKE A CONSIOUS EFFORT TO CLEANZE MYSELF OF MY SHOPPING VICEZ UNTIL I WENT TO GREENVILLE NORTH CAROLINA, WHICH IZ ONE OF MY FAVORITE SHOPPING MECCA'Z!!! O.K. I CAN'T STUNT I BOUGHT A FEW PEICEZ HERE AND THERE, BUT I DIDN'T GO OVER ACCESSIVE. IN WHICH I'M PROUD OF MYSELF. WELL HERE'Z THE FRUIT OF MY LABOR!!!! FIVE PAIRZ OF THE SICKEST SHOEZ THAT WILL DO DAMAGE IN THE UP COMING MONTHZ!!!!! TRUST THIZ IZ THAT REAL LIVE DANGEROUZ JUNK!!!! YA'LL AIN'T READY!!!!

Mry man polo dro stayz goin hard with that down south Preppy style. Man what hardcore rapper could come out with a yellow blazer, dress shirt, bow-tie, khaki shortz,sockz and gucci loaferz, and still maintain his street image. Dro takez takez the preppy style and pushez it to the limit. But itz wild how five six yearz ago thiz iz how a lo,t of dudez uzed to dress. Minus the blazer and bow-tie'z, street hustlerz uzed to emerce themselvez in Ralph Lauren, tommy hilfiger,nautica, the original perry ellis, joe boxer(befor being sold in walmart). I remember goin to the mall in North Carolina when I was in the 8th and seeing street dealerz in the mall wearing bright color Polo sweaterz dress shirtz , jean shortz, with Jordan'z. Man that waz a fly era for the south. I mean you could tell a dude from the south any where. Once the throwback jersey took flight in the urban streetz across america it made everybody look the same. But i'm glad dro still keepz the style alive. Dro haz put a lot of effoort into repping the preppy polo lifestyle to the fullest. He'z gone az far az to naming hiz mixtapez P.O.L.O. He also went on record by saying Ralph Lauren needz to cut him a check for permotion. Man everybody swearz Ralph Lauren waz boring befor they wore it. And if I see another been had polo video on Youtube i'm going hurt someone!!!! Man Kanye waz lucky just to get a meeting with Ralph Lauren. Even though Ralph Lauren owez a lot of success to the Urban Community and hip-hop, hewould never mention the fore runnerz who put hiz brand on the map. And to be honest to an extent I wouldn't neither. But dro'z still the flyest cat crushing it in the south.
