Manksters and other proper sleeveless-shirt-wearing fools: it’s your season, so get those arms ready. You know you do have the right to bare arms; it is America. If you are in fact going to take us to the gun show, I recommend trying this local trend I’ve seen begin to grow, wearing glass mardi gras beads avec said tanks. They are simple, free in most cases, colorful, and have loads of character. If you didn’t stock up/save any during mardi gras, ask a friend or visit a vintage shop. Here’s three suggestions on how to wear them.
1. Layering like necklaces creates a statement, and find some with a little something extra on them. Those glass leaves are subtle but awesome. When layering, I would say 3 is the perfect number. Necklaces are from the Krewe of Orpheus, and the solid tank is by me.
2. Monochrome doesn’t always mean subtle. You can get a big punch with the use of texture. Necklaces are from the Krewe of Orpheus, and the paneled tank is by me.
3. For a more subtle approach, fold two similar necklaces into one another to create one solid, two-toned piece. Necklaces were compliments of Brent Meche’s collection, and the tank is by me.
I adore these pink chinos, but I always get a little intimidated to wear such a color. I mean I don’t want to be “that guy”. However, it was Easter weekend, and it definitely was the weekend to wear them. For me to stomach myself in this color, I tried to pair them with a subtle button down and classic wingtips. It ended up being a nice combo for some Easter weekend day drinking (the best kind of drinking). A blue moon, shooting the shit, and avoiding pepto references made my Saturday.
