One of the best things about summer are the weekend getaways or poolside hangouts which require you to pack your essentials: towel, bathing suit, glasses & a good sunscreen. Because of this, what you pack your stuff in becomes important. It kind of becomes you opportunity to flex some sartorial muscle. While a luxury backpack may sound silly to some people, you've got to think of it as a piece that will last you a lifetime & most importantly stand the test of time regarding style.
A majority of guys just use their dingy, smelly old gym bag to hit the pool, but you don't have to. These bags are a few of my favorite backpacks for the summer. From leather to neoprene, the selections I have made for you guys range from all kinds of styles, colors & materials. There surely will be one bag you'll absolutely have to have this year. Trust me, once you make your first luxury bag purchase you will be hooked & understand why so many people do it. Check these out & rock it out this summer. My personal favorite, the Saint Laurent Leather Trimmed Canvas Backpack.

I've always been a fan of a moment of flash. Sometimes you just want to have a piece that makes everyone take notice. While you never want to seem tawdry, I think a rose gold accessory is just the right balance of flash & casual luxury.
Rose gold always adds that touch of elegance, it's not as in your face as gold or silver, it's under the radar. As of late I've noticed more & more accessories being made in this elegant color. I feel it is a way to set you apart from the doldrums of silver, platinum & gold. While there are various shades of rose gold, stick to a piece that veers away from a pink tone, as it may come off as a tad too feminine. Stick to more copper based tones, like the Meister watch pictured above.
Let me know how you'll rock this subtle yet sharp trend in the comments below.

I really don't consider it being spring until after the Easter holiday. With Good Friday & Easter Sunday behind us, its time now to start looking forward to the warmer weather of spring & the promise of summer in the horizon.
Spring is truly an amazing season, the flowers begin to bloom again & we begin to shed the layers we have been hiding under for the last few months. One thing that I am not a fan of are the Spring showers. Because of this, I pulled together a selection of essential spring coats to cover you throughout the temperamental weather we all endure during spring.
It really is nothing groundbreaking, but bright colors & patterns are just meant to be worn during spring. If you are normally not the type to wear bright colors, injecting them into your wardrobe via a jacket is a great way to test out the waters as you can simply take it off & resume your regular look with a more subdued style underneath. At the moment, I'm really digging patterns, like the KENZO jacket below.
Which one is your favorite coat? Let me know in the comments below & happy spring!!

Wide brimmed hats have been gaining traction lately on the runways across the globe. From New York to Milan, this distant cousin of the fedora has been adorning the heads of stylish gentlemen everywhere. Long gone are the days of the cheesy fedoras worn by the likes of Jeremy Piven & Kevin Federline. The wide brimmed hat is the perfect accessory for the stylish gentleman on the go who isn't afraid to stand out.
Instead of being structured & made out of a sturdy material, the most popular wide brimmed hats have lately been made of wool or felt, allowing the shape of the hat to take a life of its own. It takes a certain kind of confidence to rock this look, but as all rocker influenced trends are, you need to truly own your look to pull it off. The wide brimmed hat is truly versatile, pair it with a simple t-shirt & jeans for a casual look to even skinny black pants, button down & leather jacket for a more sophisticated rocker chic look.
Create your own truly unique look with a wide brimmed hat. Allow your hat to transform your look. I love how a seemingly simple accessory can truly take on a life on its own.

Leather has been around for quite a while now, but never before have we seen it used in such interesting & novel way. From panels on denim jeans, to shoulder inserts on shirts, leather is having quite a moment right now. You can say that leather is kind of growing up from its traditional leather jacket days. From Saint Laurent to Helmut Lang, the way leather is being used right now is quite remarkable.
I kind of think of this new way of wearing leather as an easy way to add some edge to your look. Not everyone is born to wear a tough biker jacket, so incorporating leather in a unique way is the best way to sport it while still maintaining a polished look. The juxtaposition of classic pieces like sweat pants, denim & casual shirts with leather is truly one of my favorite trends of the moment. For myself I've been enjoying adding that touch of edge to my look lately without going overboard and looking like the Fonz.
Check out some of the style picks below I personally picked out for you guys to rock this chic trend. So tell me, is this a trend you're fond of or does it belong in the realm of UGGS & other cringeworthy ideas?

It seems to me everywhere I look I see someone wearing a shade of indigo. The winter is always a drab season when it comes to colors, everyone tends to gravitate towards darker, muted shades until the spring. It is like we suddenly became colorblind once the temperatures drop. Indigo is a great way to add some color while still blending in with the darker tones of winter.
If we take a look back at NYFW in September, we can see that indigo is going to be the color of Spring/Summer 2015. Everyone from J.Crew, Gant Rugger to Billy Reid was adding a pop of indigo into their collections. Just because this color trend is slated for the spring it doesn't mean you can't start rocking this regal color now.
From dress shirts, outerwear & even pants, there is definitely a piece that you can add to your wardrobe this winter to be ahead of the curve. Style it with a skinny black denim jean to execute the perfect winter outfit.
A good Henley is quite possibly my favorite style of shirt for the fall. It's classic & effortless.You can find a henley in every kind of color & material. While what may seem to some as a simple long sleeve shirt, it is truly more than that. It can be worn easily under a jacket & a multitude of layers without feeling heavy & suffocating. Either worn on its own or as a layer, you can be certain to look stylish with this shirt. I personally recommend a henley in a grey color as it can be paired with a multitude of different styles & looks.

Ever since Apple announced its CarPlay technology, I've been obsessed with having my car's system integrate with my iPhone. Up until now, the only way you've been able to experience it first hand was purchasing a new Ferrari FF. While I still await BMW to integrate it into its line of vehicles so I can use it in my own car, the next best solution is the new Alpine iLX-007 aftermarket receiver. The iLX-007 streamlines the CarPlay features into you car, regardless of what make or model of vehicle you own.
Everywhere you look, someone is taking a picture with their smartphones to share on their various social media channels. While most smartphones take decent quality pictures, we have lost the sophistication & expertise of actual cameras to capture these memorable moments. The Sony DSCQX100 is best of both worlds, a Carl Zeiss lens on a portable lens so compact that it snaps onto the back of your smartphone (Apple or Android). With Wi-fi connectivity built into the lens, all your pictures are immediately saved onto your phone to share away with your friends.

With the tap of a few buttons, your smartphone tells the Anova what temperature & how long to cook your food, making every meal you make cooked uniformly throughout.
