Mars thinks – I honestly struggle to see past the busy jacket. Also, the shirt finish wasn’t the best option. If this is hot, I must be getting old. I’m going to listen to grandma and not say anything else. [Read more…]

Actor Michael B. Jordan shows the fellas how to rock prints with confidence!

Mars thinks – Once again, I’ll admit that I’m probably a bit biased in favor of any actor involved with The Wire. With that said, Michael B. Jordan has definitely proven himself to be much more than that kid that played on The Wire. Now to fashion [Read more…]

MARS vs. VENUS – Critique of a Groom’s Look

Hey, Triple B! Your favorite cousin has something new up his sleeve. In addition to my Final Friday musings on serious topics like marriage, brotherhood and parenting, I will post here each and every Thursday about…Fashion. The truth is I’m a simple khakis and sweater kinda guy when it comes to clothes — I’ve never been nor do I aspire to be a “fashion dude.” But Boss Lady Bridgette felt like was slacking in men’s wardrobe content.

Whether in jeans, a Polo, and a fresh pair of tennis shoes or a suit and tie, Leonard takes great pride in his appearance and can make any ensemble look good. I’ve never doubted his taste. My female friends often talk about having to give their men direction when it comes to picking out gifts for them, especially shoes or clothes. On several occasions Leonard has picked out shoes for me as a gift and I’ve always be happy with his choices. Despite having to deal with his cockiness, I’m happy to have a guy with such great style.      [Read more…]
