Go pink or go home

They say men shouldn’t wear pink.

To hell with that. Real men wear pink.

With this outfit, you can look classy yet a bit playful. Classy and the right amount of casual at the same time.

I was just messing around with some of the clothes I brought and thought, “Pink on pink. Let’s see how that’s gonna work.” It was a no-brainer. I felt stupid for thinking that it wasn’t going to work.

You guys can mix & match other colors if you feel like it, and if you do, lemme know what colors and pieces you used down below!

Too lazy to care

“When it’s like this, we chill”

I was lazy to dress up.

You guys feel me. I know. Don’t try to deny it. Everyone has those days where they just pick the first thing they see and put it on.

That’s what I did. I wanted a relaxed fit. Something simple and rugged (but that didn’t stop me from doing some OOTDs).

I’m also wearing a pair of old jeans with ripped hems (courtesy of me and my younger sister).

Lazy? Always a go for dressing up? 50/50? What type of person are you?

Laid back

“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy—but mysterious. But above all, black says this: I don’t bother you—don’t bother me.” –  Yohji Yamamoto

How can you honestly go wrong with an all black fit? I love black. I could go for days wearing anything black. That’s what I went for in this outfit.

It’s a laid back vibe but still has that sort of edge to it. Wore a brown fisherman’s hat to match my brown sneakers, the red lining of the track pants popped from the dark colors of my ensemble, and tucked my pants inside the socks for that extra rugged look.

Watchu guys think? Like it or pass on it? As usual, comment down below and if you like this post, go share it as well!

Make it POP

“Fanny on me” – Perea Street (2018)

I was finally able to cop a pair of these trousers! I’ve been wanting to get these but most of the time they didn’t have my size or they just simply didn’t have the pants.

I decided to pair it with a plain white shirt and my Adidas Superstar for that classic vibe; and since it was a bit plain, I decided to add my new yellow fanny pack (from OXGN) to make it, like what the title says, POP.

Even without the bag, the fit still looks classy and has this old school feel to it, but the fanny pack adds this extra character to it to make it a little bit less dull.

What do you guys think? Lemme know down there!

Brighter days

*cue in Yellow by Coldplay*

I haven’t posted any fashion OOTDs for quite some time but I recently did a few shoots with my parents (YES. They shoot my shots for me. Real MVPs).

I’ve always felt uncomfortable going out with bright or too much colors, I felt like I’d stand out for the wrong things. Until one day I decided to just throw all my worries out the window and wore what I wanted to wear.

So for today, I wanted to stand out. I wore bright colors that just popped. It’s simple but not dull.

A piece of advice that you probably heard a lot of times already from other people,

Get out there. Wear what you want. Don’t give a damn about what others think. Just do you. BE YOU.

Like my outfit? Hate it? 50-50? Sound it out in the comments section down below! See you guys on the next post!

  • Boxy

    Nothing special.

    I meant about this post.

    I just wanted to show you guys what I recently got at Bench this past weekend and how you could turn this simple piece into something less boring. They had this buy 1 take 1 promo, and I got a plain black boxy tee and a plain gray pocket tee for PHP 599 or USD 11.40.

    It’s a simple outfit.

    While the color of the shoes makes the outfit look less boring and dull, it also gives a bit more character to it, the shirt also gives a more rugged and laid back feel along with the track pants. The fanny pack is there to accessorise the overall fit.

    • You guys can also switch up the color of your shoe if haven’t got any red sneakers. Any color will do with an all black outfit.

    If you were to ask me about all black outfits, i’d just say it’s the way to go. It’s subtle yet it gives out a strong vibe as well. Not everyone would agree with me but personally, I could wear black every single day.

    What do you guys think? Any suggestions on what I should write about next? I have a few in mind but I’d appreciate any ideas you have up your sleeves. Comment them down below and I’ll see you on the next post!

    Circa 98

    I can join Airmax day already, that’s for sure.

    I can honestly say that this pair is definitely up there at the top of my most wanted Air Max list. My most wanted would have to be the Air Max 97, followed by this, the Air Max 98. The list would be something like this,

    1. Air Max 97
    2. Air Max 98
    3. Air Max 1
    4. Air Max 270
    5. Air Max 95
  • On to the main attraction!
  • PHP 5,900 or USD 112.30

    I got this pair at the Sneakpeek Shangri-La branch because one, they had a sale going on, and two, the all red colorway just got me. I saw it and it just spoke to me. They also had the 97’s as well but not in any colorway that I liked. This was also the last pair they had. Like literally. In my size. Can you believe that?

    • Double stitched mesh upper
    • 3M white lining going around the entire shoe separating the mesh from the mid suede part
    • Synthetic leather mud guard
    • Stitched Air writing at the heel
    • Orange suede oval on the medial side of the pair
    • Full length Air-Sole cushioning set up

    I honestly think and feel like it would’ve been better to have added an extra set of white laces. Either way, red is red. I’m a hugesucker for red shoes or anything that’s red.

    It is definitely more comfortable than the Jordan Legacy 312, Nike Air Presto, Nike Air More Uptempo, and surprisingly, the Nike Flyknit Trainer 2017 (which I think is the most comfortable after breaking it in). Not much break in is required. It’s fairly soft and plush in a way once you put it on.

    I know it’s not a widely popular pair, and I don’t care. I love it. People not wanting it means I can stand out more knowing I have something that’s out of the ordinary.

  • Overall, it’s a dope shoe. I’ts sturdy. It’s light on the feet. Decent ventilation. It’s comfy. I’d still suggest copping this even at SRP (around PHP 8,0009,000 or USD 152.28171.33).
  • All black outfit to make the sneakers pop

    Here’s a sample OOTD (which will be on my next post).

    Comment what you think below and I’ll see you on my next post!

    Every sneakerhead will tell you that you need this in your collection

    Well, most sneakerheads.

    Simple. Timeless. Iconic. Classic.

    Words that best describe the, AIR JORDAN 1.

    I have to agree when they say that you need this in your collection. Others might say the opposite and pass on the pair.

    I used to literally stick to Converse and nothing else. I wasn’t that much into shoes back then, that was until my uncle bought me a pair of AJ1’s. That literally kickstarted my love for shoes. My J’s aren’t retro’s or OG’s, just a simple “AJ1 high strap” model.

    You can literally wear it with almost anything. Shorts. Jeans. Dress it up or down. You can’t go wrong with it.

    If you’re really serious into getting into the sneaker game, get a pair of Jordan’s.

    Lemme ask you. What’s that one pair every sneakerhead should have in their collection? Let me know in the comments section below.

    That one pair you always need in your collection

    Everyone has a type of shoe that they need in their rotation/collection. It’s that one pair that has to be there or your set isn’t complete.

    For me, it has to be the Chuck Taylor All Stars from Converse.

    It’s that one pair (or three) I always need to have no matter what.

    You can literally use it for any occasion. Dress it up or dress it down, it really doesn’t matter.

    I’m not even going to edit how my shoes look. I love it even more when my Chuck Taylor’s start to look dirty and worn out.

    The dirtier it gets, the more character it has. Even the box is dirty and I don’t care I care, actually.

    I clean them every now and then, and you guys should as well with any of your sneakers, but I’m not as O.C. with them as I am with my other shoes.

    Among the three pairs that I have, I really love the white Chucks, but this has got to be my grail, the Greenday X Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars (separate post on them soon).

    What I want to know now, what’s that ONE PAIR that you’ve gotta have in your collection no matter what? Lemm know by sounding off in the comments section down below! See you on the next post!

    BOOST

    Boost for days.

    I’ve tried different cushioning setups. I’ve had some good ones. I’ve had some bad ones. But none of them as comfortable as Boost. Don’t get me wrong, some of you might prefer the Bounce cushioning (also by Adidas), some of you might prefer Zoom, Air (by Nike), or plainly a different setup.

    I have tried Boost on my D-Rose 5 (semi full length/ can’t fully feel it that much), and my John Wall 2s (heel part only), but nothing compared to when I tried using the Pure Boost 2017 with it’s full length Boost setup.

    I copped the white colorway coz it’s so clean and hella sick.

    Nothing fancy. Plain and simple.

    You can see the arch support on the inner side of the pair.

    The upper is made of circular knit. It’s a bit stiffer than Primeknit or Flyknit but, it’s still soft compared to most materials out there on other pairs.

    On the inside, there’s an internal heel padding for added comfort. There’s also those things on the outside which are for external heel ventilation (which I think acts like a TPU heel counter as well).

    As you can see, there is no insole. That’s just a thin layer of fabric inside so that you could feel the cushioning better.

    The Lacing was inspired by the Yeezy 350 and 750.

    IS IT WORTH IT?

    100% YES.

    Hands down the most comfortable pair I’ve ever had.

    PRICE:

    PHP 6,500/ USD 122

    (I got this at a discounted price of PHP 3,900/ USD 73)

    Even if it wasn’t on sale, the regular price isn’t as bad as it sounds when it comes to sneakers these days.
