It will be quiet for a few weeks, I'm going on a trip to the Sunshine State. Will Smith used to say: "Welcome to Miami"

Who is Weston Wells? I saw the first picture on a Japanese or Chinese Blog, and I liked it, because of the attitude of the guy in the sweatshop. Then I learned that this picture was taken by Weston Wells, a photographer in New York, NY., and that's all I could find out. That makes me curious.......
No this isn't the Eyjafjallajokull- Gletsjer on Iceland, this is Mount Helens, Or. Mount Helens is most famous for it's eruption on May 18, 1980, which was the deadliest and most economically destructive volcanic event in the history of the United States. 57 people were killed, 250 homes, 47 bridges, 15 miles of railway, and 185 miles of highway were destroyed. I'm wondering if planes weren't flying at that time aswell.

White bucks, a type of laced shoe with a red sole, appeared around 1870. The first bucks were made from Brazillian or Chinese deer (buckskin) and were worn as tennis shoes. Later they became popular among the upper-class New Englanders, especially at Ivy League colleges. It has been said that you only may wear your bucks after Memorial Day, but why wait another week?

Every guy shoot have a classic crewneck sweater in his closet, not those bulky ones from the 80's, but fitted like the rest of your wardrobe. Don't wear it in the gym, but wear it with a plaid shirt and a chino. By the way that little triangle under the collar had a function it was developed in the twenties for football players, the V-notch enabled the neckline to expand so shoulder pads could be worn underneath. (thanks to Details & GQ for the inspiration).

It's time to wear your outfit with a summer belt. Whether it's a webbing belt in funky colors, a braided belt or a leather belt with nautical details, it gives your outfit that extra "oemph".
My favourite picks from the Hackett Fall/Winter 2010 collection, this shows that you don't have to be an English Dandy to wear the Hackett collection. The color combo of Grey, Brown and Off-White looks so rich. Didn't I told you Winter Red for pants will be big.
