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...

In pop culture, it was a time like no other. Ronald Reagan was in the White House, “The Terminator” was in the box office and Run-D.M.C. was in certified gold.

I just couldn't bring myself to wear 'business casual' yesterday, so I opted for something a little more expressive and interesting.  For some reason I was determined to wear my Stubbs & Wootton Solunas so I based the whole outfit around those.  They are black velvet with a sun on the right foot and moon and stars on the...

46.  Thou shall not wear a fake club or school tie.  They lack class, elegance and authenticity.  In fact, the dictum of 'shoot on sight' comes to mind...

I've been on a bit of a suede shoe kick lately.  Many, if not most, of the shoes I have been looking to buy have been suede.  Some people regard suede as a fall and winter fabric, others consider it appropriate only for wear in the country.  From a traditionalist standpoint I agree with both statements, to a certain...

If only all shoes were this badass... But, they aren't, and I suppose they shouldn't be.  After all, us gentlemen do need to have some shoes that are a little more conservative and formal.  Many of you may be familiar with Suit Supply for its tailored menswear, as its suits are its mainstay.  However, the brand also stocks some solid...
