I feel like the last few weeks have consisted of me running and jumping with commitments and plans and getting ready for travel. I have this love/hate with being busy. I can’t complain because I’m busy doing all the things I love and aspire to do but I can’t help but sometimes be selfish and crave the leisure of ease.

Theres something so easy about a day where you really aren’t committed to anything and nothing is pulling at your immediate attention. But then again when those days actually do come around I suppose the really worry of the day is why you don’t have anything going on.

Something I’ve always been good at is not taking every situation so seriously but even I sometimes get exhausted in this rat race we call life. So today I sit back on this busy September day and realize I’m grateful for everything I have going and everything I have coming and with that lets go!

I have this thing where I just love to be slightly inappropriate. You know I could never call myself a gentleman. I’m not a suite guy and I don’t think I ever will be. I also have never had a desk job and never had to dress “business casual. I know lucky me.

Needless to say as much as I love my leather jacket I do love getting dressed up a bit with a nice a shirt. Though I still think throwing over a leather jacket with anything makes it only better (I wore a leather jacket to high school prom!) With this look I paired a stripped shirt from INCMen which is great because it has such modern fit that can be dressed up or down with a pair of loose trousers and a neck tie I got from Urban.

I’ve noticed for women the chocker trend has been here for awhile (throwback) and men have been doing the whole bandanna thing but I thought I’d try out a chocker look for men with a thick tie I picked up at Urban. What do ya think?

From the architecture, to the scenic views – The Getty Museum is one of Los Angeles’s finest. Holding some of the worlds most famous artists from van Gogh to Manzù. Located in the hills overlooking the city of Angeles. I come to the Getty to not only take in all the history it capsules but also to enjoy the amazing architecture.

I’m a sucker for interesting architecture especially modern and geometric. I went out to the Getty this past weekend and for a change spent most of my time outside the museum taking in the design of the museum and playing with my camera (whats new?)

Every time I’ve visited The Getty I’ve come back with a different experience and this time was no different. I came back for an appreciation for design and easy parking (okay I just can’t be that serious.)

I’ve always been a major stripe guy throughout all my young life. From stripped pants to stripped jackets to stripped accessories I wore it all. Stripes have been a consistent thing in my closet throughout all the different styles and trends and heres why.

Seasonless

Unlike most patterns like Florals or houndstooth stripes can be (though anything can be, f$^# rules!) worn at any time. They don’t have a connotation with a certain time of year and are often being sported on all the cat walks, all the time.

Pattern on Pattern

I’m all about a pattern on pattern moment though many patterns just don’t work. I’ve found it seriously easier to mix pattern with stripes and this just makes stripping even more of a reason.

It’s classic

Stripes don’t go out of style! They have been here forever and they aren’t going anywhere. You can go back for decades and see people still rocking stripes, It’s always easier to invest in pieces that are timeless and stripes are just that.

Manipulative

Now manipulative is not normally a good word but in this case it is. With stripes you manipulate the appearance of yourself such as wearing vertical stripes can help slim you and vice-versa for horizontal. This is great for people looking to slim or looking to gain a few pounds (looks at self.)

Versatile

Stripes can really it into any style. From a pair of khakis a stripped top on a yacht to moshing at a show in black skinnies and a stripped long sleeve to wearing stripped pants on Madison. It works with everyone and their unique style.

If there is one thing I want to work on about myself is my time management. I really can’t seem to be on time too often! It may be my easy going personality or the fact that I’m from LA and 30 minutes late is on time. I’ve been late all day today and I’m feeling the snooze button vibe today. This post goes out to all my “I’m on my way!” friends. I get you, I sympathize with you and I still love you.
