As a kid growing up in Brooklyn back in the 90′s, snapback hats were the ultimate urban fashion statement and closely associated with the style and music of hip hop legends like Dr. Dre and Tupac to name a few. The trend of course spread wide from sport legends like Michael Jordan to celebrities such as Will Smith when he was “moving with his auntie and uncle in Bel-air!” Flash forward to today and my boys are rocking vintage snapbacks and listening to today’s trendsetters like Kanye West, Mac Miller, Jay-Z and even underground YouTube sensations like D-Pryde and George Watsky.
Yeah, some things in life come full circle and never go out of style! Oh, and if you are wondering the origin of the name snapback, here’s the quick version: it’s a hat with an adjustable strap on the back that snaps together…snapbacks!
The popularity is continuing to grow an many snapbacks today aren’t exclusive to sport teams – they also use designer brand names like Diamond, Krew and Crook League. From a fashion standpoint the snapback definitely adds a street vibe to your look whether jeans and a tee shirt or a sports jersey with shorts. Best of all there are a ton of options and styles to choose from online. Check out the huge selection at SnapHats.com .
Cooler weather is right around the corner and by adding a few key pieces to your summer shorts now, you can keep them out later on. The idea is to pick pieces that you’ll get tons of use and are stylish enough to mix and match later on with jeans, cordoroys or slacks. Pair them with a pair of boots, oxfords or sneaks and you’re good to go! Check out some examples below
Now: If you prefer simple functional basics try a light weight jacket like the ones by Penfield over at Size? with just about any of your summer favorites. Later: Add a stylish scarf, a hoodie and a button down… guaranteed style and it’s layering heaven!
Now: For cooler nights try a preppy sweater (it’s a classic and stylish piece for any season), shorts and slip ons. Later: Pull out your cordoroys and favorite summer slip ons to wear with your sweater for a effortless laid back look.
Now: Pair your shorts with your favorite tee and a button a down. Later: Add a a vest for some stylish layering and ditch the shorts for your favorite jeans

Love a man with a stylish backpack… it gives any outfit an old school (somewhat chic/geeky) street vibe that’s so sexy! Tip: Don’t go cheap on backpacks. They are always handy and if you choose the right one, it’ll look even better with a little wear and tear. When it comes to style points, consider this: Pair it with a hoodie and slacks for an old school touch; blazers and a scarf to class it up; or a pull over, button down and baggy jeans for a smart look.

Whether playing the hilariously dim-witted brother on Friends or a brooding character on the edge like in The Gift, Giovanni Ribisi is not only a versatile actor but also a man of unique vision and style.

Replica watches many not always be as good as they seem when you first look at them online. There are many things that can go wrong with a knockoff if you don’t know where to get it from or what to look for. The store and the warranty are very important when buying a new imitation watch and it is usually a sign of the quality you are getting. Despite the fact that fake watches are much cheaper then the originals, they shouldn’t only be good for a month or two. The hundreds of dollars spent on a copy should at least offer some lasting quality; otherwise it is not worth getting one.
No matter if is made of steel or has gold platting, every watch will show deterioration in time but the period it takes for it to turn into a bad looking timepiece is very important. Wearing a fake watch everyday for two months should not result in it becoming faded and ugly and if this may happen, it should be covered by the warranty agreement. Always read it carefully so that you know what to expect. Usually, a store that guarantees their products for a long period of time is confident that they are good enough to last at least that long. Those that only offer a 30 day warranty and the state of the watch is examined by them are something to avoid.
Of course, the aspect of the replica watch is not the only thing you need to worry about and the movement can sometimes be quite troublesome. If you notice anything wrong with it as soon as you get it, be sure to contact the store and get your money back or another model. It usually takes some time for the movement to break down so anything which is less than perfect from the start is not good.
In conclusion, the store should offer a long warranty period for fake watches because there are plenty of products out there that can create a bad image. Replica watches can be a great investment if they look and work properly.
This month’s three way features a sweater vest. Love the unfinished preppy look that a classic sweater vest brings; especially in bright colors. The key to pulling off this look is not to put too much thought into it. To look stylish, it has to look effortless. And avoid wearing corduroy (it’s cliched and you run the risk of looking like Chandler from Friends! ). Instead of your basic blazer, pair a colorful sweater vest and a striped shirt with slacks and I guarantee you’ll turn a few heads at the office. For a cozy-cool look, pair a sweater vest with your favorite jeans and a plain white tee. For a tougher more quirky vibe, wear it over a hoodie, twist on a scarf and throw on a pair of boots. Tell me what do you think of the sweater vest… yay or nay?
