The one thing I can say as we are about to roll into the 4th of July weekend, the weather has been outstanding. So if you get to enjoy the day before, why not set it up as a start period. We all are ready for the weekend but getting ready to grill out with friends and have a drink, makes it better. I’m saying have fun. Where I am we are having a nice warm setting for the day. But you can always feel warm inside with a great wardrobe.

5 Designers to Keep an Eye Out For

5. Brady Lange- With this list, I am planning on lining up designers who have struck my curiosity. Some you may know, some you may not, and some you may want to know. Its easy to assume that everyone in fashion are some of the big names. Not everyone is such. Some of the best lines are those that sneak up on you and make everyone ask “where’d you get that”. When asked those questions the pride wells up because you have the “in”.

Here I wanna profile designer Brady Lange. Like most I saw him on the commercials and information for the new Lifetime show Under the Gunn hosted by,of course, Tim Gunn(brought to us by the producers of Project Runway) . Immediately I liked his style and thought “wow whose the cute guy? But better then that, i love his clothes”. I immediately researched and became a huge fan. His website is very put together. It includes lookbooks, shopping, blog, and an about me section. He also has a Facebook page. I immediately wanted to profile him and saw him as the type of designer I wanna see making it globally.

Brady was born in Montana and attended to Art Institute of Portland, which he graduated from in 2008. He interned with Adam Arnold learning tailoring.  From what i see, he is in the process of designing for his Spring/Summer 2014 Collection. He has a great sense in design as far as using patterns. Throughout the clothes you can see an urban influence and thought to bringing a more grounded appeal to high end. I wouldn’t say that there is a similar deisgner to him, that’s why I wanted to profile him. I feel he’s one of the designers in a class thats taking what they learned and stepping out on a ledge to focus on what they truly want to do. He has three collection look books on his website. I can see that he will go far. Keep an out because I will and will be posting more to see what 2014 will bring him. Check out Brady’s first episode of Under the Gunn posted below and various links to interviews and information about Brady Lange.

10 Signs You’re a #Menswear Nerd

So perusing through my morning websites and I come across a small link for an article. Of course it’s one of those silly countdowns where you click through and see each slide for what it is. Most times I click, see things I like, and giggle a little(yes i did say giggle). Now the reason why this one made me stop, is that it IS an abundance of things that I myself do. I mean who doesn’t get sticker shock when they see how much cheese has gone up to? Am I the only one who is amazed that chips ahoys have gone up or I can’t get Pop Tarts for 2 dollars?(yes it sounds insane) Yet I will fork over 100 dollars for jeans. Yeah I’m that guy! This countdown may have been tailored(horrible pun I know) for me. Complex Magazine’s style section is probably in my top ten sites and today they truly hit it on the nose(or maybe I should say nicely made Italian leather belt).
