Find me Fridays: A blue leather jacket

This one is special folks! It’s got to be my favourite Find me Friday ever. One of my very fashion forward YMBL’rs and i had a conversation that went exactly like this.

Very fashion forward YMBL’r: So the video of Miami 2 Ibiza

Me: Ya the song?

Very fashion forward YMBL’r: Yea. The guy is wearing a blue leather jacket. I’ve been trying to find that jacket both in New York and London

Me: Ok cool you want a blue leather jacket?

Very fashion forward YMBL’r: No. I want THAT leather jacket. All the other blue leather jackets i’ve seen are crap.

Excellent! First step i youtube the shit out of the video

Next step freeze frame Tinie Tempah

Next step freeze frame Tinie Tempah

And finally my very fashion forward YMBL’r this super cool jacket was made by HYENA (thank you for making me discover them-this is why i love Find me Fridays!!). Their products are available at ASOS Marketplace here, and while this jacket is not available there, on your next trip to London, take some time out and go to their store in the Vintage Warehouse on Lower Parliament Street, Nottingham where they might custom make this exact jacket for you:-)

Run by brother and sister Laura and Paul McGregor this label is totally everything that we grew up with! 80’s, 90’s, pop, punk, rock LOVE it! Below are excerpts from an article by thisisnottingham

She says, “The jackets i rework are vintage leathers from the 1950’s to the 1980’s with a good structure and good quality. I saddle soap them then go crazy studding them by hand, then spray painting them with graffiti paint. i’ll roll about on the concrete floor to get the right effect.”

Why call it Hyena? Paul says: “Because we’re anti-fashion, yet we want you to spend money on what we create. We’re laughing because the jokes on us.”

You can find them on facebook here. I don’t know what it is about these guys but they’re really making me want to kick it off old school tonight. Yay Friday!!

If any of you have been looking for a product/look/anything that you’re having trouble finding. Email me at ymblrevolution@gmail.com and i’ll find it for you:-)

Rock the Jodhpuri pants à la Maharaj Uday Singh Jhala of Delwara

#YMBL photo of the day!

#YMBL’r photo of the week!

Todays photo showcases YMBl’r (We say youngmoneybiglove’R around here) Maharaj Uday Singh Jhala of Delwara rocking his Jodhpuri pants as an adoring fan looks on. I am always surprised at the number of men who wear this style at weddings. It’s usually none. C’mon my Indian hotties! Hermes is doing it Armani is doing it we have a distinct advantage your darzi is doing it! These pants are sexy and you should not only be rocking them at weddings but also wear them casually with a shirt as seen below on Milind Soman. While he’s got nothing on HRH Jhala its a great idea nonetheless. So take yours out from the shaadi clothes section, wear it to your next rager and send me a picture at ymblrevolution@gmail.com. YOU could be my next YMBL’r of the week!

Send me a picture of you rocking your jodhpuri pants at YMBL@gmail.com

A call to arms: Colored Chinos

Ok boys it’s time. If you haven’t gotten a pair or 10 of colored chinos yet DOOOOO IT! I mean, look below:

VHchino

Bro even Van Heusen is doing it. This isn’t a trend anymore its mainstream. A common argument i hear is what will i wear this color with – have no fear YMBL is here.

If you’re a first timer i would start with Green! You will be super surprised at how many colors go with this earthy tone.

Slide1

First thing to remember is green chinos work best with brown belt + brown loafer. See Polo Ralph Lauren ‘Hudson’ chinos here for INR7234.

My favourite: Blue and white striped shirt. This combination is PERFECT for summer. It’s easy, breezy and makes you look like that guy who can whip up yummy cocktails in seconds. Pictured above is a Lorenzo Uomo dress shirt for INR4601 here 

My casual: ANY madras check shirt with hints of yellow or green or both. I bet you have one in your closet right now thats begging to do the mambo with a pair of green chinos.

My not black or white basic: Grey chambray. This one is Topshop and is available here for INR3241

My step it up: Orange! Dare you.. ooohhhh

My veto: Red, unless its Christmas when everyones on vacay and doing what they want anyway, you’re confusing everybody. Stop,go,stop,go, what does he want exactly??

Now if you did take the plunge and you’re having trouble going beyond white and black shirts let me know on YMBL and i’ll be happy to help!

Go forth my handsome soldiers, arm yourselves with colored chinos and slay lesser beings with your stylesaber #YMBL

Skinny on the Skinny

YMBL photo of the day @Samb

Hurrah! This is what i wanna see at my doorstep everyday. You know when you put on that suit and feel like Michael Douglas in Wall Street? Ya you do. It’s because of this moment in history, that you my friend, look the money.

In 2001 Dior Homme kicked up a storm by reviving a more body conscious silhouette. Spearheading this revolution was then creative director Hedi Slimane. His photo diary is super inspiring and just so cool – check it here!

Slimane’s unflinchingly skinny suits rocked the fashion industry and changed menswear forever. Karl Lagerfeld himself went on a much publicized diet and lost 100pounds to fit into Slimane’s designs! Imma so glad this happened *rub my hands with glee*. While Slimane did leave Dior and stopped designing for a while he’s back as creative head for YSL now so fellows you know where to look for the next big thing. My recommendation: get it tailored top to bottom. Samb got his from Burlington and another favorite of mine is Tailorman. If you have any favorites or recommendations on where to get suits tailored leave a comment! The information will be much appreciated by members of all sexes!

Magic Mondays: Man Cleavage Etiquette

Photo courtesy @SamB

Photo courtesy @SamB

Good morning handsome! Todays Magic Monday topic is man cleavage. Accept it – it’s here to stay. I for one am all for it however eye candying would be a lot more comfortable if a few basic rules are followed.

Rule#1 – Don’t go deep V if you don’t work out.

I don’t think i need to explain this further. Just don’t.

Rule#2 – Evaluate your surroundings

You could be looking amazing but if its in the wrong place uh oh-uh no. For instance, if your job description does not include displaying cleavage don’t write it in. Less is more at work use your other assets to get ahead.

On the other hand, if you’re in a club, or its really late at a wedding and everyones drunk then it’s totally fine. More might bring you more in this case so go for it!

Rule#3 – Beware of unruly chest hair

Tiny tendril peeking out from under a shallow V is cute if you have the chutzpah to pull it off. Personally i recommend you shave to truly give this trend it’s due.

Rule#4 – Tapered fit, narrow silhouette

Cleavage looks best if your shirt is tapered at the waist and bottoms are skinny. Think dapper to avoid looking trashy.

Rule#5 – Own your cleavage

Flaunt it and be comfortable in your own skin. Don’t go all the way if you’re not entirely there yet, try easing into it, otherwise you’ll look like you’re trying too hard. Start by unbuttoning one or two of your shirt buttons a couple of nights. Then move onto a shallow V t-shirt  and then when you’re ready take the plunge. Its only boob, no pressure!

Thats it from me peeps. If you have anything to add/agree/disagree or want me to find you the perfect man cleavage tee leave me a comment and i’ll be happy to hunt them down for you!

A super special Thank You to my friends Sam and Aadit who inspired this post with their perfect man cleavage picture! 🙂

How NOT to spend your money

Please tell me you’ve heard of Datta Phuge. The ‘Indian Man’, who spent $250000 on a gold shirt. A shirt made of solid gold!! The story is he bought it to impress the ladies. Imma thinking even serious goldiggers are going to find this a bit intense.
