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.

But wait there’s more!

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.

Strong.

Aggressive.

Intelligent.

Observant.

Telepathic.

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.

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!

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.

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?

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.

Everybody wants a Kung-Fu… PANDA!

Recently, I had this random conversation with my random best friend and the topic of that what supposed to be a 2-hour convo was my plans in 2014. Honestly, I got really mindf*cked with her questions! “What would you do next year?”, “What are your plans on summer?”, Would you be on a relationship, finally?”. These are the questions that made me think really hard. Although I answered her with my concrete plans for next year, weird thing is that those questions are still bugging me until now.

People might or will eventually say that we’re on our track, or even on the right track when they finds out that we had this set of bricks already lined up in our path. Let’s admit it, it’s easy to plan for the future but why do we find it too hard to materialize? Basically cos we don’t know what lies the next day, or the day after the next. On that point, we tend to be excited on what lies ahead of us that we want things (or time) to pass by at its fastest mode.

"The Panda is a very slow-moving animal, carefree, and tame in nature. It roams in the mountains to find bamboo, all-day long."

We are now living in what we call a fast-paced environment. What seems to be a 2-minute buffering of a video would make us angry, A half a minute loading of a page would makes us nuts and even a 15-second heating of our food in a microwave will unleash the monster in us.

Truth is, we are restless.

We want everything to happen at the same time. 

And if doesn’t happen? We easily give up.

And then I realized.

I am still young. 19.

I dont need to rush things, those will come to me.

I dont need to push myself to be who I want to be, I just need to be ready cos when that time comes, it’s only a make or a break situation.

It’s not necessary to get everything I want, those are only wants.

It’s not about who you are right now, but who you will be tomorrow.

I realized, rushing things would only tire me out.

Patience is indeed a virtue.

Be patient said the panda.

Panda = Masculinity + Femininity

Pandas also symbolizes stability that is why they are incorporated with the yin yang sign, Black and White.

Balance.

Sometimes you need to give yourself a break from all the stresses.

Sometimes you need a breathe of fresh air.

Sometimes you need to just sit back, and relax.

Or sometimes…

You just need to unleash the kid inside you so that you can appreciate things, even more.

And that is the whole concept of me and my best friend’s conversation.

It’s not about who you’re with or what you have or what you can do, if you do not know how to appreciate even the simplest things, you’re doomed. 

The Panda teaches us to have balance of everything.

Push and Pull.

I’m just gonna say sorry in advance for the low quality photos. Why? cos we tried to shoot without enough lighting and ‘twas also raining a while ago. Basically, I went street dapper again cos it’s really comfortable yet it gives me this classy look :)

I went to a mix of blue and black, specifically leathery and velvety black (lol at this) to accentuate the hype of the look. This is my first time wearing a kinda leather pants. And I think I gave it justice naman. lol.
