Cotton long sleeve top charcoal Forever 21 men
This piece is amazing the color is so cool, labeled “charcoal” grey this color pulls out earthy tones, a taupe almost green brown I love it. The fit is perfect for me since my large chest and shoulder size usually makes shirts “too short” this slight long line style with a curved hem is very flattering and makes me feel not so buff. How ever sadly this is a prime example of strike while the iron is hot, because this top is now sold out and currently unavailable online you may still be able to find it in store though.
These shades are one of my all time favorites I’ve owned and that’s saying a lot I’ve had super retro futures, persols, raybans, and spektres. These kinsrow frames are right up there, especially in this “Matte Havana” color way with ebony wood inlay. I’ve never seen a pair of sunglasses with a more unique character, these may shade your sight but cast a spotlight on your accessory game. (Warning girls are going to ask about them so have a follow up conversation ready)
I may be a tad late to this party but damn will my hair look great *wink emoji*
What party you ask? The on Byrd has been having. I recently found this brand at target while buying shaving cream. This surf texturizing spray reminds me of bumble and bumble with a bomb scent and super accessible price point dare I say this is a better choice? Couple sprays later and you have an effortless “day at the beach” vibe going on atop your head. Making this a prime choice for guys looking for an easy “composed hot mess” style. Did I mention this shit smells fuego?
Fun fact I’m Obsessed, O B S S S E D with smells. Good cologne is simply a must you need at least a “signature scent” people associate with you, then you can begin to add in occasional colognes for events and seasons. If you don’t have one sephora is a great place to start. I have had hundreds of colognes (currently 20) and pride myself in being able to identify fragrance notes with in colognes a bit of a connoisseur I’m forsure that guy in sephora smelling every single thing three times. My girlfriend Logan does not have what you’d call a complex taste for fragrances? She has a similarly sensitive nasal palate, however if A scent is to busy or has to many notes going off at once she is not into it, no matter how sophisticated the layering is. So finding scents shes likes that also suit me is a challenge. When I discovered “commodity” I was stoked needless to say. This brand is beyond cool, they describe themselves as “Essentials for the senses” and I can’t do any better than that honestly. Every single scent is crafted by an Artisan master perfumer and You can find the description, who crafted the smell, and the “inspiration” behind every scent on their site here
But for now let’s talk this particular scent “wool” and I’ll adlib and translate as we go.
A woody (manly) scent that exudes warmth (spice) like your favorite cashmere sweater, it provides soft (subtle) sensual textures (the scent has depth) and rests on the skin settling in with rich (lasting and the most identifiable) notes of rich amber, earthy vetiver, and sweet bourbon vanilla (nose sex). crafted by Donna Ramanauskas and inspired by “the comforts of home on a cold winter’s night snuggled beside a crackling fire wrapped in the soothing softness of the most precious handcrafted material of a silky wool blanket -The feeling radiates a completely comforting mood – both warm and sensual with a luxurious touch”
TOP NOTES Recognized immediately upon application of the cologne
Mandarin, Grapefruit, Apple
MID NOTES These “Heart notes” appear once the top notes evaporate
Basil, Fresh Ozone, Cedarwood, Lavandin, Armoise
BASE NOTES Final fragrance notes that appear once the top notes are completely evaporated
Amber, Haitian Vetiver, Gray Musk, Bourbon Vanilla
In summary this cologne is unisex but more masculine, sexy subtle and complex, it’s for the modern man( or woman) , and is perfect for colder seasons.
As I’ve said in previous posts solid denim is a massive mens essential, and Levi’s are a bullet proof safe bet for a good fit high quality and great washes that don’t break the bank.
Like levis Converse are an all american classic that compliment most casual outfits, these all black water resistant canvas chuck taylor high tops can play with the best of them dress them up or down with the rest of your outfit they are ready to play the role of tofu in your kick game (cause they take on the vibe of the rest of your style?… Yeah Idk I hate tofu too)
