The Pullover Hoodie is a staple that should be in every man’s wardrobe. With winter vast approaching, the pullover hoodie is something to strongly consider RIGHT NOW.
I strongly suggest picking up a basic grey, blue or black hoodie because they go with just about everything. If you plan on picking up a Pullover Hoodie to brave the harshest of conditions this winter season, I urge you to pick up one from Reigning Champ. Reigning Champ continues to be known as one of the best fleece company’s in the market. In 2007 designer Craig Atkinson founded Reigning Champ, a brand dedicated to perfecting every guy’s favorite go-to: fleece. Handmade in downtown Vancouver, their Pullover Hoodies will make you rethink how good sweats can be.
Above are great examples of how to wear the Pullover Hoodie by none other than the Beastie Boys. The Pullover Hoodie is a very versatile piece that can be worn alone or paired with your favorite jacket and denim/chinos. Not only does it make a great layering piece, but for those seeking warmth and bracing for the crippling solitude of yet another cuffing season spent alone, the pullover hoodie is the ANSWER.
#LifeStyleClass: Style Notes - The Long Coat
The Long Coat is something I strongly believe every man should have in their wardrobe. Whether you decide to wear it with a white tee, sweater, or button down shirt, the long coat is one of the more versatile coats.
The long coat comes in all different types of colors, but for winter time, I suggest you stick with the classics (blue, black or tweed). The Our Legacy and A.P.C. long coats are great options for the winter weather and are sure to not only keep you warm, but have you looking like JAMES DEAN. I mean who didn’t want to or still want to look like James Dean in the height of the blogging era?!? LOOK HOW EFFORTLESSLY COOL HE LOOKS MY GUY? Menswear aficionados everywhere were lighting up cigarettes just to pull off this look and believe you me, if you wear a long coat you too can achieve effortless perfection.
The long coat is a great outwear option this winter. Whether you dress it up or dress it down the long coat practically makes any outfit look good. Above are some great examples of guys who pull off the long coat.-Alan
Our friends Anne and Sandy were kind enough to invite us to the private grand opening party of their new Tout Suite Cafe & Bakery in EaDo (East Downtown) on Tuesday. IMHO, Tout Suite has been one of the most eagerly anticipated new cafes in Houston. The original opening date has been delayed for months, causing anxiety amongst local food and coffee enthusiasts. Alas, Tout Suite is FINALLY open, and I’m being completely honest when I tell you they got everything right, and it was well worth the wait.
The space is huge. Established in 1904, the building served as a Ford dealership, then a motor oil shop, then a series of night clubs (when it was “Club Hell” I once DJ’ed a New Year’s Eve party there), and then it sat unused for what seemed to be years before becoming Tout Suite.
I fell in love with the design of the space the moment I walked in. It’s very “Brooklyn-esque” - cool and trendy while being comfortable and unpretentious. If you’re looking for a spot for a first-time meet up with that honey you met on Tinder (or as we like to call them, a “Tinderoni”), Tout Suite is highly recommended.
The food and pastries were amazing. I don’t know what anything was called, so I couldn’t recommend anything specific, but literally everything I ate was delicious. And if you’re into coffee like we are, Tout Suite serves Greenway so you know you will not be disappointed.
It may sound like I’m gassing this place, but honestly I was blown away with how well executed everything was, from the design and decor of the space, to the quality of the food, to the service of the staff. We talk about the “New Houston” all the time, and Tout Suite is definitely one of the local businesses that’s raising the bar here in the H.
