Fashion Staple: DENIM

If you don’t own any denim, just get out. Go somewhere else. It’s EVERYWHERE. Jeans, jackets, even button-downs. You’d seriously have to be living under a rock or be Anna Wintour (she’s the only thing too fabulous for them. Just googled, she does wear jeans from time to time! Bless her.)

One of my favorite past times is looking into the history of things. Words, customs, fashions (you know high heels were originally for men, right?), or even food. Maybe I just like the trivial information, but curiosity seriously gets to me. Naturally I started to wonder about denim. Who wore it, when, where, why?! I found this infographic that you might find quite intriguing. I want to know what your favorite style and fit is! Also, skinny jeans seem to be almost always in, so don’t ditch that pair just yet. Perhaps I’ll use some old pairs of jeans and make a stitch hodge-podge jacket, might teach me a thing or two about sewing. XP

 

I also love the feminist movement and liberation through denim. Take that power.

What is your favorite fit or style of denim? I love the straight leg, but am also a major fan of the tapered look. Just gotta hit the gym more and the Oreo’s less. Whoops.

PEACE,

Cory

NO ATTACK

For those of you who follow me on twitter, you may know a few more things about my fashion sense than those who don’t. But don’t fret, I’ll catch you up with the important tweets that are applicable to this line I just found.

I think you get the picture.

Somehow, by the grace of the gods, I encountered this brand on my feed and have fallen in love with it. I’ve contacted the brand and they gave me these photos to share with all of you! Revel in their glory.

 

There is plenty more where that came from, just saying. Check out their site linked below. 😀 This line is called “Stargate” and I can see why! It’s out of this world with inspiration.

In my opinion, these designs are a playful, yet serious questioning of what male fashion is and could be. Why can’t a man care enough about fashion to push the boundaries? There is a playful touch of subtlety where you can’t necessarily place your finger on how the clothes are different from those of most clothing lines, but you can feel that they surely are. No Attack’s Stargate is edgy enough to be different, yet subtle enough to blend in; giving it a tasteful edge.

I can play with their motto “Real men fear no attack” by taking it one of two ways. One way being from the perspective of dressing outside of the norms of what a “normal” man wears. Others are going to comment, smirk, or talk about it, but that man shouldn’t fear those attacks.   Another way I can take it is from the point of view of the “ordinary” man; being that a man who sees another man dress outside of the social norms of men’s fashion shouldn’t feel threatened or attacked by this man’s display of edgy style. The two can coincide in today’s society regardless.

While the line is based out of Poland, they ship worldwide. I know I’m on board. Take me to your leader.

SOME POSITIVITY FOR YOU

If you’re feeling discouraged, I’d like you to stop that. Just stop. Now.

Having  moved back home after graduating college, it’s easy to feel discouraged during the job hunting phase…especially if you’ve gone from living on your own to back with the family. (Love them to pieces, but it’s nice having your own place.) Sometimes it’s also easy to feel discouraged by your geographical settings. I know seas of corn don’t exactly scream opportunity for myself, but for others it may! Your mind is also an infinite resource. 😀

Also, stop the comparison. Because your story isn’t going to be the same as anyone else’s and that is a beautiful thing.

If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.

-Milton Berle

Perhaps I’ve been motivated by some discussions with some great people whom I’m very lucky to call my friends, and some projects we’ll be working on together. (More details coming later! :P) But it’s important to know that inspiration can be everywhere and that opportunity is yours to create.

Chart your path, and execute your dreams. Take no prisoners. Love,

Rey
