look 10: ports 1961 x everlast.

the second half of my ports 1961 project was all about the brand's new collab with everlast. creative director milan vukmirovic dropped a fresh new capsule collection born in performance, but enhanced by style; and the items are pretty cool. check out the piece i picked out below. -j

wearing: ports 1961 x everlast mesh camo shorts, asos man silver parka and ribbed turtleneck, uniqlo heattech leggings, creative recreation napoli sneakers.

brand spotlight

we've been having a crazy winter up here in nyc, but i'm not complaining. i mean, shorts in the middle of january... that's a sweet deal. i'm really into this set from the collab: they're hella cool thanks to ports 1961's iconic star camo print, but they also add some tough boxing vibes to the whole mix for a nice statement. the capsule features a number of garments inspired by the sport, all of which are sure to give your spring wardrobe (or gym game) an extra punch of style.

look 9: my snow day with ports 1961.

earlier this month, i teamed up with ports 1961 for their #followme campaign, and there's no way i could pass on the chance of sharing some of the shots with you guys. the photos came out really well, largely because of the random blizzard that hit nyc the day i set aside to shoot my look. needless to say, i didn't let a few snowflakes (well... a lot) get in the way. check it out. -j

wearing: ports 1961 personalized #followme teddy jacket, asos man ribbed turtleneck, alexander wang cropped trousers, creative recreation sneakers.

breaking down the look

if you've been following me for a while, you're likely used to seeing me in darker, muted colors. well, i went ahead and switched things up for this one: i chose this bold red colorway for my personalized #followme jacket and it's a beauty. worn with an all-black statement, it completely comes through as the hero of this look, even when it's paired against those big stripes down below. keep this equation in mind throughout the season for an easy fashion win: a head-to-toe black ensemble + a strong pop of color in your choice of outerwear = style success.

oh yeah, @kjohn_lasoul was a part of the campaign, too!

5 looks x forever 21 men.

late last year, i teamed up with my buddies at forever 21 for another quick collab—this time, to show off some new pieces from their #fw16 assortment. i put together five looks, grabbed my camera, and headed to dumbo to capture the shots below. the weather wasn't on my side (at all), so i kept everything super simple, but i still wanted to share a few of the pics with you guys. you can also find a few selects over on the @forever21men instagram account—make sure you click that follow button while you're there. enjoy. -j
