ROYALTY: Power. Character. Quality.

As I was browsing through Royalty's facebook page, I immediately thought of RAN Online. The japanese looking jerseys, hoodies, crewnecks, and how the collection were delivered visually, they all take me back to my RAN online days (korean/japanese characters highschool dudes/girls fighting IN THEIR DOPE SCHOOL UNIFORMS... just check the game out! It's a pretty dope game.)

Enough about reminiscing RAN.
Royalty is a local streetwear brand founded this year, and it sucks that I only found out about them a week ago when I was looking for local brands that offers baseball jerseys. And I'm so lucky that I found Royalty cause they got what I'm looking for in baseball jersey! 
My personal favorite!

Anyway, I haven't got in touch with any of their products yet, but looking at the pieces online I'm pretty sure that they are made of good quality and taste (come on, don't you just love those prints!). And what really catches my attention are the Japanese characters embedded, they just add up the attitude more. I'm a fan of anything jap, btw :))

So if you're into dope jerseys like what Royalty has to offer or you just want to feel like a japanese highschool guy, I highly suggest you check out Royalty. This brand's gonna be big, and I don't have doubts about that! Specially in menswear!

This will be included in their next collection! I wanna get my hands on that black sweater! They are also having a giveaway for this collection! Check their facebook page for infos! 
Too much dopeness. Sadly, we have to wait for their release.
I also heard they're gonna be releasing their new collection pretty soon! So you better stay tuned!

Be sure to check them out! Just click this link ---> ROYALTY and you can also follow them on Instagram: @royaltycloltd

CULT SEES ALL


"CULT SEES ALL" is what Cult is all about. Cult is an independent streetwear label that focuses on bold designs such as the photos above. What I love about this label is how distinct the designs are, and very illustrative. Not to mention, the brand's logo is such an eye-catcher!

For now Cult offers shirts with different designs and illustrations, and also hoodies. The hoodies are to die for, dying to have one! 

Plus, I also heard they're gonna have their new collection released soon! RED HOODIES, maybe? 

Visit their page to know more about this dope brand! Click this link!

Or you can also visit them personally at Parafreaq, 2nd Floor VMall Greenhills!

M.I.A.M.I


Shirt (Adidas); Flannel Shirt (H&M); Denim Jeans (7 For All Mankind); Sneakers (H&M); Watch (G-Shock)
This would be my first time to post a look like this. This is not my usual style but I gotta say that I really love this outfit not only because it is pretty simple but because of its edginess. I kinda experimented on how to make a shirt outstandingly stylish and not boring by adding a flannel shirt and tying it around my waist. I also fancy how the denim jeans worked out perfectly for this outfit. I also rolled it up for the whole outfit not be boring and give emphasis to my high-cut sneakers and the socks.

So, whaddya think about this outfit? Yay or Nay?

STYLE ICON: David Gandy

"Shopping for men is such a chore. All you really need is a few style tips to get you on your way". - David Gandy
Another style icon feature, and this icon is just perfect for this feature because he is coming here in the Philippines and will be the new face of SM Men's Fashion! 

This icon is none other than UK’s number one male model, and Mr Dolce & Gabanna (well, he's been modelling for the brand for years already!) David Gandy


I see David Gandy's style as impeccable yet very simple. I always see Gandy wearing suit in his interviews (YES, I AM A FAN). But the one thing that really amazes me is how David Gandy really gets everything right in his outfits, I mean, yes he's a supermodel and all and Dolce & Gabanna is just a one call away if ever he have outfit problems but what's perfect is how his outfits are perfectly tailored. And I think that's one thing that we can all learn --- getting the fit right, always. Finding the right cut suit and using a local tailor in order to get personal adjustments is a massive step in getting the right fitting suit.

Gandy’s style is definitively masculine; when he’s not providing an astute example of tailored perfection, he’s keeping it simple in well-fitting denim and bold blockbuster leathers. Gandy’s nominal approach is evident when dressing down too. While layers are one avenue in creating stylish outfits, a focus on fit and simplistic garments can often achieve the same result. For example, the signature Gandy casual look involves a shearling leather jacket with little more than a t-shirt and scarf for company.


David Gandy wears a mix of tailoring on a day-to-day basis. He certainly knows how to wear tailored blazers and waistcoats, and can often be seen using these suit separates with jeans, different colour trousers or even a simple t-shirt. David definitely knows his own body type and gets the fit PERFECT – it is almost like each item he wears was made exactly for him.


For casual days David still keeps his whole look smart and very fitted. There is nothing too outlandish, just basic v-neck and scoop neck tees, dark plain knitwear and slim fitting shirts. You do not often see this man in printed or graphic clothing, and it always fits him perfectly. He often goes without a belt if wearing jeans which just proves that he picks the right waist size in order to keep them up naturally – remember a belt should be an accessory in order to provide an individual touch to an outfit, not something you HAVE to use in order to stop your oversized trousers falling down! On the subject of accessories, David uses key gentlemen accessories such as pocket squares and lightweight scarves in order to really round out his tailored look.

Below are some of his lookbooks.

If you feel like you want to look like Gandy or be Gandy himself here are some key items that you may want to keep in mind:
  • Two-piece tailored suit (black/blue/grey).
  • Tailored jacket (Herringbone or Tweed).
  • Tailored tweed waistcoat.
  • Light wash jeans.
  • Slim fitting shirt / deep v-neck t-shirt.
  • Key accessories and footwear: Pocket square, skinny tie, lightweight scarves, smart black/brown leather shoes.
And as I have mentioned, David Gandy will become the new face of SM Men's Fashion and will be coming here in the Philippines this October for the Philippine Fashion Week! This is yet another milestone for the fashion industry here in the Philippines!
