Okay, so Alex Pardee summed up in one word- nuts. The art is so vulgarly unique, but yet his emotion shows from miles away. Loving this artist, with a story behind each and every one of his paintings. It is just raw art, and I love it. Pardee is such a creative soul. From what I know, Pardee has worked with Hurley Snowboards and Kidrobot. Definitely check out his site and shop.

Jerkaholics Clothing

Jerkaholics is a newer label. It is like a breath of new air. I mean the shirts are dope, and simple. The shirts will make you stick out in the crowd, or you could get one that does the opposite. Whatever you could possibly want in a dope tee, they sell it. Jerkaholics Clothing is on their way up. I support them %100, and I can't wait to see them at the top of the game. I also love the way they are staying true, they represent a culture. I respect that. Everybody definitely needs to check them out.

Outfit of the Week

The Maestro outfit pick of the week features- Retro 12 "Flu Games", Levi Trucker Jacket, Gap Inspi(red) tee, and Camouflage cargo shorts. Well the flu games alone are an amazing shoe all around, as any retro Jordan. If you don't know the history behind them, then you don't know your NBA history well enough. That is besides the point though. The Inspi(red) shirt matches the shoe as any shirt should. But it is the camouflage cargos that set the outfit on fire. If you stop and think, the reason why camo cargos look so good with red and black shoes is because green and red are complentary colors. This is an amazing look alone, and has been seen on many celebs. EX- Kid Cudi, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Swizz Beats, ect. You get the idea. The "Trucker Jacket" by Levi is the alternative to the ealier rather expensive TRBJ jacket. Levi's Jacket is $45 as opposed to TRBJ's $200 and up. This jacket was also featured on Kanye's "Top 10 Essentials List". The denim jacket will just add a ruggedness to this look. It is a uniqe touch, that not any will have the guts to wear. But if you do wear it, I guarantee you will get major style points; If you you wear it with the correct posture and swag. Of course there will be haters, but they are everywhere. But this outfit, is awesome in my eyes. Tough, but just soft enough to make a fashion statement. "Flu Games" - $149.99, Levi Jacket- $45, Inspi(red) shirt- $25, and Camo cargos- can range in price depending on where they are purchased.

Perspective Chair by Pharrell Williams

The perspective chair has been seen all over the internet. But it is rather difficult to find a thorough report about it's history and what it's about. The "Perspective Chair" was made in collaboration with a design by Pharrell and being produced by Domeau & Pérès. The chair represents the affection between male and female. As the front legs are a woman's, with the back legs as a man's. This chair is one of very few; Around 4 are in existence of each color, making it extremely valuable. This chair and the others are on display at the "Emmanuel Perrotin Galerie". The gallery started on October 21 2008 and ends on January 10 2009. Okay well enough about the chair. Pharrell's style in this picture is amazing. It's simple, but yet strong enough to make a fashion statement which is rare. I think this outfit says "I haven't changed one bit". His confidence and swagger are superior. This is one of my favorite pictures of Pharrell. I mean, what other multi-millionaire can pull off Vans?

The Who "Greatest Hits" CD

British hall of fame rock band, The Who, are internationally known for high energy, in your face, quality concerts. Beginning in 1964 and still touring today, The Who are awesome. The "Greatest Hits" CD is just phenomenal, you could listen to it beginning to end without skipping over a song, while actually enjoying it. From "I Can't Explain" to "It's Not Enough" this CD is pure greatness. Available on iTunes for $10.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Men's fall/winter 09

Marc by Marc Jacobs is my favorite high end brand right now. The designs are so casually unique. I have never seen anything like these ideas. Hopefully I can purchase a piece from this line soon. Everything is mix and matchable. It has a very metro rugged look. And I am loving it. Marc Jacobs is in, and killing it this season.
It's a must have for the winter season.

Retro 11 Space Jam

Being released on December 22, just in time for Christmas. The Space Jams are the most anticipated release of the year, sneaker wise. The Space Jams are definitely a bold fashion statement, I mean basketball shoes with patent leather says a lot. They can be easily dressed up or down. They would make a wonderful Christmas present. The best advice I can give is to buy 2 or 3 pairs. One to wear, and one or two to keep on ice. On ice meaning, keep it for a certain period of time; then sell it for triple the value. For all you real sneakerheads out there- sneaker collecting is a business. Not a hobby. A definite suggestion, these shoes will be limited, so if you plan on buying them take your sleeping bags. Different shoe shops will be selling them. Suggested retail - $175.

Jimmy Denim Jackets by True Religion

Denim jackets are definitely in this season. But do not match them with your pants, unless you are making a fashion statement, as it may come off as the same trend from 2000. The "Jimmy Jackets" by True Religion would be the perfect denim jacket. They come with a heavy price tag, but with great quality to match. True Religion is often seen on celebs, and the rich due to price. But save up for some True Religion, jeans to hats. With True Religion all is high quality. Definite must have for your winter wardrobe. These jackets are for sale on for $262 and $308. Since most can't afford these jackets, I will post an alternative later. But if you have the money, it's a buy that will last you a long time.

Rugby x Toms

This is easily the most creative collaborative shoe on the market. The camo canvas looks amazing it would compliment a pair of cropped skinny jeans perfectly. Every pair you buy, in turn, another pair is donated. So in other words it's stylish, but also makes you seem like the perfect gentlemen in front of the ladies. These are currently on for $65. The Ralph Lauren Rugby brand is nice. It is like the casual Polo. It is Ralph Lauren's fun brand. Clothes that are good for going out to the park, or to the movies. They can be dressed up or down. I highly recommend this brand. Quality and style, what else can you ask for? Once again the link is Check them out, you won't regret it.
