Something new.

I once thought that I can’t wear some outfits away from my original style which is street. But then, just recently, I thought of trying it. And this happened. And I fell in deep love with this kinds of outfit.

First, I never wear plain white under shirts, aside from it being my undergarment for my school uniform (yes I have, until now). I decided to try my first layer to not be black.

Next, I am not a fan of aztec prints, really, until I got this really cool jacket from CHASE! So then I tried to pull it off. And I think, with all the elements happening in the jacket, I did.

Lastly, that hat. Never in my life did I think of wearing something big on my head, until SM Accessories made me realize it fits me well. Or was I just thinking that? lol.

So basically, this look is a Hype Beast/ High Priest inspired look. I am in to this kind of looks right now cos 1. It’s that layered kind of time again. 2. It demands personality to effectively wear it and 3. I love everything going on, from the sinister-vibe to the high-end and high-fashion aura it gives!

What Im wearing:

Floppy Hat from SM Accessories

White Shirt from Uniqlo

Faded Gold Rosary Necklace from Folded and Hung

Black Joggers from Oxygen

Flash Runner from World Balance

Bomber Jacket from CHASE Fashion Inc.

A TOPNOTCH DEMIGOD

What makes you TOPNOTCH in your filed of expertise? 

For me, being a Topnotch Host, Blogger, and Student is being able to balance time effectively and efficiently and serving as an inspiration to my generation and the next. 

Many of the people I know say I’m a jack-of-all-trades kind of guy (weh). I can do a lot of things, name it. But then, I realized being TOPNOTCH is not being great at something and/or being an expert in your field. But, being able to take criticisms positively and making it my strength for the next challenges in my life.

I know it sounds kinda hard to do it, cos technically, criticisms can bring you down and all. I suggest, embrace your flaws first, embrace the authentic you, embrace who you are as a person. And from there, people can say everything they wanna say, but as long as you accepted your weaknesses, no one can use it against you. God bless! :)

For the meantime, here is my post about a trip to Escolta Street, in Binondo, Manila. Photos were taken by my awesome friend, Karlo Torio. Visit him, his works, and his blog here.

P.S. It’s the first time I wore a white shirt for any blog/outfit post. lol

And before I forget, that awesome thing that I am holding right there, THAT IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE THING RIGHT NOW! They call it, the Flip Folder. 

You see, this is one great innovation from the conventional type to a modernized kind of folder.

image

It’s so convenient I bring it with me when I go to run errands and attend to meetings. And did I say I use it in school too? Oh definitely! 

image

This folder right here, this suits me well. A fashionable, convenient, and not to mention cheap! I mean you would add spice in your outfit when you go to let’s say business meetings, product endorsements, or for students like me, school! :D

TO ADD MORE COOL INFOS ABOUT THIS COOL THING…

1. It comes with colors so awesome and cute it’s like the rainbow!! They have Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Violet, Pink, and Black! :D

2. It is reversible! It has this big envelope inside you can place inside important docs

3. It has a side pocket if you need more space for papers and or notes and a strap for your pen! 

4.And lastly, it’s indestructible!!!!! for me though. haha!

We are the kings.

As a menswear blogger, street style is my center. And it has been like that since I started dressing up to express and never to impress. Now this, as the Street Demigod, is a brand I will support. 

Kings of the Urban Street Apparel or KUSA as they call themselves, is a new brand of menswear that will surely catch your attention for they offer (on their first collection) a wide range of simple but elegant and legitimate street wear for the Urban dude.

KUSA has this shirts that fit really well a minimalist print that made me love it really more. The shirts are really comfy and I believe you can pair it up with chinos, denim, leather, or in my case, camo pants. 

And if you’re the kind of dude who wears caps/snapbacks cos you might be having a bad hair day or maybe just an avid fan of those, you can wear it too! It’ll add up to the swaggy aura of your get up!

Well, it’s fine too if you don’t wear caps! lol.

What I wore:

NYC Black Snapback from H&M

King Shirt from KUSA 

Camoflauge Pants from Carbon

Flash Runner from World Balance

If you need fashion suggestions or get up pegs so you can be a legit urban dude and be a stunner on the street, check these out!

That black Made. shirt paired with a nice faded gray denim pants topped with a gray snapback is just perfect! Add a studded black belt plus a high cut black kicks and a nice watch will definitely complete the look. A monochrome ensemble, need I say more.

How about a Gray Perfection Shirt from KUSA plus a black pants? YES! This is that normal but has a lot of swag outfit of the Urban dude. Match it with half-cabs, a sports watch and a black cap. This is just great!

PERFECTION. MADE. RESPECT. KING.

Coming Soon.

The spirit of a lone wolf.

The lone wolf is strong beyond measure, he is the embodiment of the wild spirit surviving on his own.

FREEDOM.

Clearly, at this point of time, I’m having a great deal of fascination to Animal prints. Literally, Animals that are printed on clothes, lol. I just find them really cool and I believe that every animal, like colors, has its own symbolism. It’s a twist in fashion and self-expression, though. And  basically it adds to the totality of the style as well.

image

Strong.

Aggressive.

Intelligent.

Observant.

Telepathic.

image

The lone wolf is the supreme hunter. The shape-shifter and the path-finder. It teaches us how to find resources, to be resourceful and how to use our resources wisely.

To keep moving forward.

To keep evolving.

It teaches us how to assess each situation and adapt to it as we needed.

Always ready.

Always prepared.

image

So talking about what I wore:

This awesome kicks from World Balance is really legit! I suggest you go buy yourself a new pair cos it can be a match to any outfit you’ll have this holiday season! 

image

The black cardigan-blazer I’m wearing is from Folded and Hung, and its like a cardigan, but it’s a blazer. I do not know how to call it… BUT I’M LOVING IT cos it gives out a polished look but then a street dapper kind of vibe to it as well. 

image

That Sky Blue Walking Shorts is from the Bodega Sale of Collezione recently. They’re really a blessing cos they donated the proceeds of their sale to the victims of Yolanda! How great and noble, isn’t it?

image

The spirit of the lone wolf in the totem asks for introspection - to face your deepest fears…

The fears that holds you back.

The fears that destroys you from within.

The fears that controls you.

The fears that limits you from being who you are supposed to be.

The spirit of the lone wolf teaches you to face all of them.

To set yourself free.
