VAEL PROJECT DECKARD BOOT

I think it’s slightly obvious that my extreme obsession with all sorts of high-top footwear persists. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the Deckard Boot by Vael Project is the subject of this post.

If you ask me, these are a triple cross (if such a thing even exists) between boat shoes, moccasins, and high-top converse sneakers. I have to admit that my interest in the geoff brown pair is a result of their slight resemblance, in color at least, to the Peco Boot by Red Wing. Either way, these are dope.

As my 20th birthday approaches (Yes, you read that right) I continue on my quest to look fly without looking like many of your favorite rappers. I’m sorry to inform you, but a fitted and a pair of fresh dunks or Jordans don’t cut it anymore.

I’m accepting early birthday gifts at the moment, and not to worry, I welcome late gifts as well, so if you wanna get these for me hit me up here and I’ll send you an address to mail a pair of size eleven’s of either color (or both).

P.S. – There’ actually such a thing as a triple cross. Click here if you think I’m kidding.

OK So I’ve been trying to do this whole one-post-a-day thing, but I honestly couldn’t wait to post this. I thought it was a joke when I first saw this, but I can’t wait till this comes out.

Whoever’s the casting director for the movie did a great job of picking Jake Gyllenhaal. I would’ve expected an Orland Bloom-esque actor to play the role of Dastan, the street urchin/rogue prince whom the movie revolves around, but JG is sure to be a good watch.

Anyways, watch the trailer and you’ll see why I can’t wait for this to come out. Plus, you get to see the sexiness that is Gemma Arterton.

LIL WAYNE – TREASURE OF THE CARRIBEAN

Treasure of the Carribean

I just realized that lately I haven’t made any posts in the heavy rotation category, so this is for all my music heads out there. This mixtape came out a while back, and although it isn’t an official weezy mixtape, it’s still one of my favorites.

The album artwork for the mixtape is pretty funny, but when you think about it weezy could definitely be a pirate. I can picture him screaming “Arrgh” and telling other rappers to walk the plank… LMFAO!

Anyways, this is one of those times when I’m feeling really generous, so I’ve decided to drop two tracks off the mixtape. One track is a single by Mika Means featuring weezy and the other is a remix blend of Drake’s “Forever.”

As the son of world travelers and an amateur traveler myself, I take a lot of pride in looking the part when I walk into an airport terminal. I was raised to look presentable when travelling and I will definitely be passing that tradition on to my own kids.

Lately, I have realized that, along with clothes and footwear, your luggage casts a serious impression of you. I must say that I haven’t exactly been known to carry around the flyest luggage, to say the least, but that’s about to change.

When I think Diesel, I think watches and jeans, so I’m still taken back by the fact that they’ve entered broader categories, in this case, luggage. The Diesel Strong Duffle is some fly a** s**t.  It’s a rectangular olive green canvas duffle with a wraparound  leather belt detail at the top and so much more.

THE DIECI SNEAKERS IN PALOMA BY GOURMET

I never really paid much attention to Gourmet Sneakers because I didn’t really feel like they had styles I could wear, but that has definitely changed over the past few months. Either Gourmet made some serious changes to their sneaker line or I just woke up from the deepest of slumbers.

These definitely stopped me in my tracks at work today when I saw them. Whoever came up with the idea to have asymmetrical shoelace panels deserves praise… and a serious raise. Between the paloma (not gray) grain leather, paloma suede upper, and the rubber soles, these sneakers definitely make the cut.

Is paloma an actual color or is this some creative concoction by Gourmet? If it is then excuse my astute lack of knowledge of all my colors. Anyways, let me stop there before I make a fool myself. I just found out these have a pigskin leather insole… I don’t know how I feel about that.

I’ve always seen Guess as a brand with high craftsmanship when it comes to timepieces. Although I’ve never actually owned a Guess watch, I admire the different styles of their watches.

The 25th Anniversary Iconic Cuff Watch stands out as one of the most stylish Guess watches I’ve seen in a while. I came across the Brown Leather Cuff version some time back and it was love at first sight. It features a silver-tone case and a silver and rose-gold-tone dial.

Guess recently released the Cuff Watch in black leather and it features a gunmetal-tone case with a gunmetal and silver-tone dial. The black leather Cuff Watch is definitely on my wish-list, and with a 10-year limited warranty it’s definitely a keeper.

STRAIGHT NO CHASER (CONCEPT VIDEO)

This is my favorite song off Mr Hudson’s upcoming album Straight No Chaser. I’m still tryna figure out who produced this song, but my top source – Wikipedia – hasn’t been too helpful.

I came across this video on none other than Kanye West’ blog and I was completely blown away. The video is by Matt Perri, or at least according to vimeo it is, and he did a great job with the video editing. You would think this was an official video the way the different scenes match up almost perfectly to the song lyrics.

I don’t know about you but this video has definitely awoken my inner producer, so don’t be surprised if you see a concept video by yours truly sometime soon… lol. I would post the mp3 for the song but my respect for Mr Hudson’s musical talent prevents me from doing so.

Enjoy.
