3 Things for Him

13 Sep

FASHION: The TOPMAN collection launched at Nordstrom on Monday. This shawl collar cardigan is my pick for the fell-loves! It’s multi-color print is the perfect knitwear to sport this fall. I know some of you Menz might be a little shy when it comes to color but I promise your lady will welcome the change. Plus, if your lady gets cold you can offer her your beautiful cozy cardy. What a gentlemen!

FOOD: Alright…Alright…Alriiiight, you gonna learn today (said in my Kevin Hart voice) about chicken n’ waffles. Okay boys, these aren’t your standard run of the mill chicken n waffles. Nope! This here cornmeal waffle is light and fluffy like a pastry cloud. It’s served with brown sugar honey butter and buttermilk fried chicken. It’s the most delicious waffle that will EVER touch your lips. For those of you NorCal fell-loves, make sure to bring your next brunch date to Brown Sugar Kitchen in Oakland. Your date will think you’re some kind of food genius! 

TECH:  Try the Adidas miCoach Speed Cell and Heart Rate Monitor. It tracks your performance by the second. You can connect the device to your iPhone. How rad is that! The miCoach will set you back $70 for the device and another $70 for Speed Cell. Check it out at adidas.com.

Surely, when 80's Hip-Hop group RUN DMC rapped about "My Adidas" they weren't referring to "flame wings" and "teddy bear" adorned Adidas sneakers but, then again Jeremy Scott had not come on the scene. Scott is a British Designer who's teamed up with Adidas to create "The Originals" a sneaker collection inspired by his eclectic approach to design. Contrary to popular belief that athletic shoes are getting too much of the Designer treatment. I think these sneakers are pretty dope, rad, awesome, bomb (any other retro slang terms I forgot to include). The only pair I am not fond of are the teddy bear sneakers. I've had too many run-ins with Bubba! Bubba is a very cute, little, dog that belongs to my niece and nephew who's affinity for stuff animals increases each time I visit. I'm pretty sure that if I wore these shoes over to my brother's house Bubba would think I brought over a girlfriend for him to play. Trust me….the end result would be catastrophic, you have not seen the immense havoc he wrecks on plush stuff animals. Anyway, I salute anyone who would rock these sneakers!

Just in case there is one person left on this planet that hasn't heard the icon "MY ADIDAS" rap song by RUN DMC. Here you go!
