As I was perusing the shops and galleries of the Promised Land yesterday I couldn't help but take notice when I saw this gent's shoes.  Although not all that uncommon for one to put coins in their strapped loafers (also referred to as penny loafers), US pennies are the most common choice and extra points if they are from...

When I was up on Nantucket a few weeks ago I met the girl behind the nantucket blACK book, in fact it was at the much underrated Nantucket Library.  Anyway the obvious topics of conversation were blogging, Nantucket and style.  Naturally, I had a few things to say about style on Nantucket so we thought it would be best...

I am of the opinion that a shirt that is a blend of linen and cotton is really the ideal shirt for summer.  Don't get me wrong, I do love my pure linen shirts but the whole excessive wrinkling thing can be a turnoff at times.  It can make them hard to wear in more formal and professional settings. ...

  Dear Readers, On July 23 & 24 I will be venturing to the MRket and (capsule) shows here in New York.  I am quite excited for both and frankly cannot wait.  I expect to have ample coverage on both events, especially MRket.  However, if there are any brands and shops you would like particular highlight of or details of, please...

For some reason the idea of power suiting has caught my attention this week.  Something along the lines of Gordon Gekko, Chuck Bass and that D-list celebrity who's name I've heard but don't remember; I think he's married to some other D-list celeb whom I have minimal tolerance for.  The peak lapels of the jacket add a bit of...

A while back I spoke on my experience running a Tough Mudder, which I guess you could say was FYGblog's unofficial entrance into discussing active/sportswear (ie workout and gym clothes).  Around the same time I was contacted by the good people at American Giant to review some of their products.  At first I was hesitant but I ended up...

A few months back I decided it was time to have my hand at designing some things.  Given my obsession with braces and the blank slate they provide for one's creativity I thought they would be a good starting point.  I wanted to keep things simple and unique this time, so I opted for a solid grenadine fabric in...

So I opted for a last minute trip to Nantucket (aka The Promised Land) for the weekend.  We'll get back to regular programming Monday, or whenever I have adequately recovered. Cheers, Justin

Given America is the best country, ever, it would make sense that an American company designed and produced the best sunglasses, ever (ie Old Glory Oakley Frogskins pictured).  Right here in America.  Happy Birthday America. JLJ

Note to my readers: I had a bit of an unfortunate incident with U.S. Customs last week.  I'd like it to serve as a heads up for all of you, there is a possibility of it happening to you.  I am 100% certain that Customs was in no way singling out the brand, Luxire.  Can't say the same for...
