Lovers Melt

Please download. I've had this on repeat and it will probably be my summer soundtrack.

This guy makes some pretty cool videos. Check them out here.


A couple of books I picked up from my local used bookstore for those lazy summer days I get to do some quality reading. Gordon Parks Half Past Autumn is a photo-biography of the late great photographer, filmmaker, and author. A Gentleman's Wardobe by Paul Keer is a classic but dated (1987) compendium of classic menswear for gentlemen wanting to step up their style game.


I've been thinking a lot lately about the idea of everyday items. The things that you really can't leave the house without and rely on heavily in your day to day activities. I've pretty much, with exception to my mobile device, have determined that these are it for me. I'm not referencing the brand of the items as much as what each item represents to me and my daily life.

Sunglasses-Ray-Ban Aviators. I drive A LOT and pretty much can't get on the road without them.

Pen-Zebra F-701. Even with the reliance on mobile devices for communication you really can't do much without a reliable pen around. This is mine.

Watch-Vintage 60s Citizen Manual. I've got many watches but none that I really consider strictly an everyday. I'd been eyeing this one on eBay for a long time and finally decided to pull the trigger. I imagine it belonged to someone who really needed a simple, reliable, everyday watch during a not so simple time in history.

Father's Day

Hope all the Dad's out there had as much fun celebrating fatherhood as I did. Cheers!

Transit Ostend

In 1981, Marvin Gaye, the all time champion of soul music, took refuge in Ostend, a little town located on the Belgian coast. Marvin’s choice to lay anchor in Ostend was totally unexpected, not to say incredible. On the fact of it, there was no reason for this charismatic character to come and live in the home town of famous Belgian impressionistic painter James Ensor.
Marvin nevertheless remained in Ostend for nearly two years. He went back to the States to receive a Grammy Award for his latest album “Sexual Healing”. He died in Los Angeles on 1 April 1984, shot dead at home by his own father, a clergyman.

"Twenty years after the making of a first 29 minute film entitled,Marvin Gaye Transit Ostend, I decided to make this second documentary film. It’s my way of bringing to life the picture Marvin Gaye dedicated to me."

I've been really feeling Theophilus London's vibe and think his music is a breath of fresh air.

I'm over my eyewear budget this year but it hasn't stopped me from wanting another pair. I'm pretty convinced my next pair will be a retro inspired pair of plastic framed aviators. There is something very suave and luxe about the style to me but also fun and nonchalant. I did find a pair of YSL's at discount awhile back but someone else had the same idea and snatched them up before I had a chance to get them. The hunt begins...
