GREATS sneakers just released another killer style! Inspired by the venerable MA-1 Flight jacket that was first designed by Alpha Industries, these silhouettes and colorways are going to carry you all the way out of summer and into fall in serious style!
The Daniel Patrick and Knomadik fashion line has been growing like wildflowers since 2012. The collection is being carried in over 50 boutiques around the world. Last week I visited Daniel Patrick at his headquarters in the Downtown Los Angeles Fashion District. I was able to get a sneak peek into what we can expect from Daniel in the near future as well as learn a little more about the man himself. Let’s learn more about this amazing designer and his collections.
The men’s fashion industry seems to have new brands, collaborations, and exclusive releases daily. It’s like a full time job just to try and keep up with what’s happening next. One missed email and you might miss out on a piece you have been lusting after. I’ll be honest, I’m just as overwhelmed as everyone else. It can be difficult to sort the ‘crap’ from the stuff you really want to know about. There is no question social media has given a voice to… well… anyone. Anyone can launch a brand, create a replica, or create hype. I’ve narrowed my list of ‘mens designers to check out now’ to six. I wear all these guys and I’m even more excited about what they have coming for fall and winter…
Why can’t we wear our leather coats right NOW??!! Most of us only sport our leather jackets in fall and spring. Seems like a shame, no? We spend a lot of money on these pieces, so let’s see if we can get a little more use out of them. Too be honest, I’m getting a little tired of my parka right now. Here is my favorite way to keep leather garments in rotation all winter long… layering.
Layering is practical in cold weather, looks awesome, and you get to wear lots of different pieces all at once (like leathers)… bonus. The key is to make sure you don’t look sloppy. Keeping things fitted will help you look cool. The pieces should look like you planned them, not like you got dressed in the dark.
Don’t be afraid to bundle your layers up by busting out a heavy knit sweater of fitted hoodie (love the look of a hood coming out of the collar of a leather jacket).
So please be inspired to give your biker jacket some good old winter love. Rock on!
