Sorry for neglecting this site. I've really focused all my attention on the store as well as the website and Tumblr and will most likely be putting this blog to rest in a month or so. Have no fear though, you can now find me on a couple different platforms! If you have some time, please check 'em out. Thank you again for all your love and support and all your kind comments.

i like to say it's been a pleasure.

couldn't have said it any better...

In the coming weeks, I'll be gradually moving my thoughts, ideas, and interests onto a new platform. I'd definitely love for y'all to check out The Class Room, which will be coming to Houston this October. So without much further adieu I give you The Class Room...for ANTS! As you can tell, we are very excited and like we've stated, we can't wait for y'all to be a part of The Class Room experience!

This is not the end, but the beginning of a dream that has come to fruition. I'd like to thank all those who have stopped by and who continue to stop by and drop comments.

It's definitely been a pleasure...

Gant Rugger X Close Up and Private F/W '11/12

bravo sergei!


This publication is the result of a unique visual collaboration between Sergei Sviatchenko and Gant Rugger Denmark.

Opened last year, the Copenhagen store was quick to reach out to the city's stylish and creatively influential men.

Top of their list was Sergei Sviatchenko. Not only is he one of the countries most respected living artists and undoubtedly one of Denmark's best-dressed men, but his world-famous online gallery Close Up and Private also celebrates the kind of menswear Gant Denmark is built on - a wardrobe for the modern man inspired by American Ivy and European classics.

Many consider Sviatchenko's work as a revolutionary approach to fashion photography. It's a totally fresh and dynamic style inspired by his work as an abstract painter and collage artist and also his infectious love of clothes.

It didn't take long before Gant Rugger Denmark and Sergei Sviatchenko pooled together on this, their first collaborative project:  A–COLLABORATION GANT RUGGER X Close Up and Private FALL/WINTER 11/12 COLLECTION

Originally dating as far back as 1914, GANT is synonymous with ivy league and classic preppy style. GANT Rugger is the brand’s younger label. Lead by Stockholm-based designer Christopher Bastin since 2009, GANT Rugger is a pure expression of the brands authentic American heritage.

With cropped blazers, fair isle sweaters, rugged chinos, washed denim, ribbed cardigans, winter weight madras shirts, signature popover button-downs and an array of outer-wear, GANT Rugger’s winter collection 2011/12 provides close up and private’s Sergei Sviatchenko with a rich palette of texture, colour and design with which to work.

Buy It Now | Yuketen Maine Guide 5-Eye Boot (Loden Green)

*gasp*...whitney and mariah were right...

there can be miracles when you believe!

I posted this last picture in October and alas, my dreams have finally come to fruition! Yuketen's newest colorway of the Maine Guide Boot (Loden Green) is absolute fire. Not only did they make another great shoe, but they definitely exceeded my expectations (the contrast of the brown and green leather is stunning). My only wish is that the good dudes over at Yuketen make this boot into either a low or midtop for the warmer climates, like here in Houston. Other than that pick up a pair at End Clothing cause supplies are limited! And as usual if you're here in the U.S., SAVE 20% OFF!

Buy It Now @ End Clothing for $627.86. (a small price to pay for some solid shoes)...I'll refrain from the usual Rick Ross Grunt.

Happy Shopping,

they're at it again...(thanks Ricky for posting)

Random Thoughts | Tailored Gang

yeah, uh huh, you know who it is...

everything they do, they do it BIG...

If you've ever wondered about How To Talk To Girls at Parties or been Beat Like You Stole Something I certainly suggest you first Start with (a) Typewriter or (a computer like I'm doing) and gather your thoughts. (Or you can read this ill-advised blogpost, hey the choice is yours it's a free country)

As I continue to get older I am starting to understand, appreciate and value the importance of "fit". Not to discredit quality made goods cause I love 'em to death, but what good is a great shirt/pants if it fits you like a potato sack? (That may have sounded better in my head)

That's where the "Tailored Gang" come in. These dudes are some of the crispiest dudes on the internet and even more so a great reference if you want to get your "Grown Man Style" and fit on. These guys are doing some great things with their shop Run Of The Mill, that's carefully curated and well put together. So if you want to up step it up a notch, find a great tailor and start educating yourself on fits as well as fabrics or even better, you can ask one of these dudes. Just don't be one of those lame Anon drones who hate on people doing great things.



wake up.

long days, but i know hard work pays...

Unboxing | Visvim FBT Waxed 2-Tone (Charcoal/Black)

the search is over...

New Old Stock Visvim shoes from F/W 2008 that comes in waxed leather. I've been searching (understatement) for a pair of these for a reasonable price (the re-sale value on these are outrageous) since I saw my dude Bobby with 3 pair in L.A. Found these for a great price and it's safe to say that I can't be any happier. The leather is super soft and these are hands down the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. I can't wait to break these in this coming weekend in Chicago.
