Ahoy, ahoy… here it is folks, the final layout for my posts on nautical gear! The whole point of this trend is comfort and ease… believe it or not, sometimes being too fashionable isn’t necessarily stylish. The “less-is-more” approach is a definite must in Spring and Summer fashions.
So this week, I want you to take notice on the three types of shoes that are a staple for this trend: the boat shoe, the canvas slip-on shoe and the classic lace-up’s. I wanted to post way more than what you see in the layout, but you get a pretty good gist of everything that is pictured.
I hope my last few posts about this particular trend has been informative and enjoyable for you to read. You now have a guide to complete your nautical fashion awesomeness…
Have an fantastic week everyone!

So often as I make my rounds at various high-end retailers, I am always left wondering just how these fashion houses can charge someone their month’s rent for a fucking sweater… a light-weight sweater at that! Now, if you can afford to shop at luxury shops like Louis Vuitton or Lanvin or Gucci, etc… then you’re not who I am talking to in this week’s entry. For those of you who appreciate high-end style, but lack the disposable income to finance such a look, then pay close attention to this layout I created that will make you appear as if you just stepped off the Louis Vuitton runway.
Obviously, the quality difference is somewhat significant, but in the end, who cares what labels you’re covered in… if you look good, you look good! Below you will find some of my favorite looks from Louis Vuitton’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection that you can splurge on, but I also include my interpretations of these looks at a bargain! I know, I know… how is a $400-600 outfit a bargain? Relative to the LV price points, believe me, it’s a BARGAIN! Their sandals alone can cut $500 from your bank account! But if you don’t need the bags and accessories, that’ll significantly cut the costs. As I’ve mentioned before, you don’t need to spend a lot, to look like you’re worth a lot!

For decades, the relationship between fashion & style and gay men have become synonymous with one another. However, there is an error with this stereotype; just because a man is gay does not mean he was blessed with the gift of style. It is an unfortunate truth that has deluded the minds of many men in the gay community who believe that just because they know how to suck a dick, automatically makes them fashion experts, and that they can thrown on any outfit and simply look fabulous.
Let me breakdown the difference between fashion and style. Although many gay men know a great deal about fashion and designers, their daily outfits can still reflect poor styling decisions. Continue reading
