All Tweed Everything.
Not really. I thought it appropriate that I finish this tweed day off with a WIWT. Also I wanted to update you all on where I am right now with some of the things that I have hinted at for the past few months.
The Branding Agency- We have our first client project. A tie company. You will know it when you see it. Crafting a collaboration project specifically for the ADT followers, plus a lot of cool things that I feel will be organic. I wouldn’t push it if I wouldn’t wear it. Real talk.
Trunk Show - We have 2 of the 3 brands we need to make this work. The Gibson has agreed to let us host it. We are shooting for the end of November. Dates and brands will be supplied
The Gibson Meetups - Next Friday is the first Friday of the month, but being that half of us will be in NYC we will be moving it to the following friday. The cool thing is that we keep having more people, so we may have to move it to Thursday because the private rooms at the Gibson can only be reserved for 2 hours on Friday and the weekends. I will put the word out before hand for anyone who wants to attend.
Last but definitely not least the app. I haven’t spoken too much about it, and the only thing that I can guarantee is that this will help you find or enhance your personal style. Other than that, look for people to be using it by Fashion week. Download it.
So i wanted to take this time to do my #followfriday for my immediate team. All of these guys are well on their way to changing the game in their own individual lanes. It’s cool to have a collective like this. ImageGranted, PresentingCorey, Cirq6, CB, Wingtipsandloafers, Manshion, Wellpressedgamer, Addison Wright.
I also want to thank all my blurs who have been going hard and supporting me. All the outside supporters who keep me motivated and give their support behind the scenes from the messages to the reblogs.

an exercise in minimalism. no patterns, black leathers, no peacocking (which i am known to do here and there.) and i can dig it. growing up, one post at a time. somebody tell my mom, oh wait, i will, speed dial, 1. mommas boy started a blog and shes proud of me.
gonna do a couple laps at the park later if anyone wants to eat my dust.
happy hump day.
-sometimes simplicity is all you need.
I rarely post WIWT photos. The ones I do post tend to be ones shot and posted in the style that I would do if I did. To me personally. This look matched with the background look great. I personally like how Tumblr allows you to curate the way images are displayed when uploaded. To me this is the best combination in my opinion. It gives followers more to love about your style.
WIWT - Remember the days when J.Crew used to make ties thicker than 2 inches? Well I do, as most of my J.Crew ties are from that era. This is one of my favorites, measuring in at a whopping 3.5 inches wide! Wow who woulda thunk it?
I also whipped out my tassel loafers for a spin today. I figured it would be nice to whip them out of the first day of classes for students. I may have long graduated from college, but I still like to get dressed up for the first day. Or every day for that matter.

INFLUENCERS: Jake Davis a true Maven
I have always been a fan of @Jakedavisfilms “Test Shots” he leveraged basically a hobby of shooting friends into an international K-Swiss ad. Jake talks about how he started in film to his current collabos with J.Crew and Supreme I am beginning to sound like a broken record with this. Create your own path folks. Guide yourself to brand with It’s the only way to unplug from the matrix. Jake realized early on that the old guard of directing high budget music videos is done. He found his niche with shooting artistically crafted shoots. That landed him this Drake Video Grant of @imagegranted is putting your boy onto classic videos. I cant wait for you to see what we are working on. Soon come. In the mean time check out this collab that Jake did with @Hypebeast So sit back take a red pill and focus on this.
