Drop Crotch / Carrot Tops

Skinny Jeans are the beezness.
I been sporting these must have items for the last decade and I have to admit whenever I put mine on I automatically get transformed from mere mortal to super hero (I'm obviously using the hyperbole here - bare with me), or more aptly like normal to Johnny Thunders or Dee Dee Ramone, but hey to me they one and the same.
But like most things super cool, the super uncool get hold of em and make em super bland *insert sad face now :( *
But thank the fashion heavens above, there is a saviour to the skinny jean. It is the Carrot Top or Drop Crotch. I mean, look at 'em, they make me all happy and warm inside. I glove them, I mean I glove them alot. I was about to raize the white flag on the fashion world and give in to the norms but Dear Carrot Top you are the almighty savoiur. From a Ginger kid to you, 'Carrot Top' I thank you.
So now to the business end of things:
As you can see I'm rather a big fan of the drop crotch/carrot top. To simply put it - they work and they work well.
  • They Work in A denim with a cuffed bottom (a super duper hells yes must have - accompanied with Urge Randy's - a summer must have!!!)
  • They Work in a Chino (obviously worn with the Urge Rivers or Howellas)
  • They work in a Corduroy (preferably brown or navy colour)

I especially love the cuffed look with the drop crotch, I cant keep saying it, it just works.

So if you squires are lucky enough to find a pair now, but them all.

P.S - A fare warning - its not flattering to have the major drop - it just looks like you made a mess in your pants - and you'll lose all the skinny jeans have worked for!

Give Your Feet What They Deserve!!!
Urge - Harry Fox's

Monday, June 7, 2010

Yesssur they have arrived, and in a big way. Unexpected, indeed, but nonetheless they are here and finally I say. SOCKS!! I mean dont get me wrong, I still frequent the secret sock and think it is vital to show the correct amount of ankle, but (and thats a big BUT), nothing screams "fantastico" more than a fancy pair of socks. Ask any innocent [or more aptly, lucky] bystander when they see a flash of a sock. Yes, Sock! One more time, SOCK!!!

Here are my simple guidelines of socks usage:

  • Animal print - I bought myself a few pairs of different animal prints and they have gone down like a fat man to cake. Prints of neccesseties: Cow (check), Zebra (Check), and my new favourite Giraffe (oh hell yes - check mate)!!!

  • Colour - 1stly a warning - Please do not ever wear plain white socks with black shoes, and vice versa!! This is the purest form of blasphemy!! Now, the two colours of significants (these are versatile and will go with any shoe colour): Pink & Red. (if you can get it in the argyle print - double points for you)

  • Shapes and Design - Lastly, the neccessary socks for the seasons are shapes and design socks. I mean they are worn to be seen and why not make a flashy bold statement whilst you at it. Stripes are super duper and dapper enough for you not to get upset when you are requested to "....please keep the socks on!!!!" For the more conservative, you may use any Argyle Print sock.

Gentlemen and squires these are a few (of many to come) vitally important points one needs to be aware of with your clothing and this season coming:

  • Never ever ever hang up your jerseys, button up shirts and t-shirts. It is such a school boy error. You need to fold em, this will help maintain the shape and avoid that sagging look. No one enjoys a saggy bottom speedo wearer.

  • Black and Navy work together, like cream cheese on a bagel, like jam and peanut butter, like whiskey n soda, gin n tonic, sunny and cher, limp and bizkit (you get the point). I personally prefer navy to be the accompanying colour and add some dark brown with it too, but hey, thats me.

  • Dappernessisms - Dapper is super cool, find your inner dappernessisms and show it off whilst you can, push the line of dapper and ostentatious.

Embrace, go forth and kick a**, deal with it Rock 'n' Roll

Peace 'n' Pies

Everynow and then, phrases come into ones vernacular, and refuses to leave, like foreign relatives that decide to move in. At first its the bomb, exciting, you loving the new company, then they start to over stay their welcome, are always in the loo when u need it, eat your favourite cereal, leave their dirty laundry everywhere, scream when they are on the phone. Ye, you know exactly whom I am talking about, but at the end of the day we love them!
So I wanna introduce you to the new one, use it, abuse it, let it over stay its welcome, but embrace it, it will make you feel or fuzzy inside.

Shocked and horrified I stumbled upon a quote that read as following:

"Cowboys are cooler than Ninjas"

I mean really, com'on, who in their right mind actually can compare the two. Cowboys. really?!? Never!!!! Firstly, lets just state, if you ever compare anything to a Ninja, you clearly aint a Ninja (o yes I did), 2ndly ummmm NOOOO! Dont forget : "Every Cowboy Has Daddy Issues."

And in 'Honour' of ninjas (which I am) i wear Urge Randy's.

Peace n pies

Quote for the Weekend

Dont forget eveywhere is in walking distance if you have the time and a pair of URGE's.
These Vince's are better than wearing a new pair of underwear, a clean shave, a total eclipse of your heart, a zombie film directed by Quentin Tarantino on a rainy day, a well connected high 5, a tushy pinch, a fancy dance and even mashed potatos and beef ribs from the grillhouse.

Aaah dont you just love fetishes......ummmmm HELLS YEAH!
Well the more people I meet the more I find out that people suffer from shoe fetish's....its kinda like the new A.D.D, but way more uncontrollable and somewhat more acceptable and cooler.

Well to help everyone who suffers from the beauty of shoe fetishness, and to help the "bite" of the fetish take over the nation, I need to introduce you all to URGE. Take it from a man that lives, eats, breathes shoes, these my dearest friend are superb.

I will be uploading pics soon, im just not such a techno sauve human, so give a man a chance.

Peace n Pies

Finchley Row

I Find it very neccessary that my 1st post on my blog is going to be some of my favourite quotes: I hope it inspires us all. but firstly one must remember: Its not how GOOD you are, but how good you WANT to be!

"its better to fail in originality than succeed in imitation" Herman Melville

"success is going from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm" Winston Churchill

"to become a champion, fight one more round" James Corbett

"knowledge comes from the past, so its safe. Its also out of date. Its the opposite of originality" Paul Arden

"fail, fail again, fail better" Samuel Beckett

"I havent failed, I've had 10 000 ideas that didnt work' Benjamin Franklin

Well, just looking at it, it seems rather negative, on the contrary, this is all positive. Welcome to Finchley Row.
