!Fashionista Pick of the Week!

BENFASHIONBLOG.JPG

Retro with a Twist! Fun and ultra casual (but always with a hint of style) The Faces Tee and the Plaisown track jacket; these two pieces from Ben Sherman are a perfect breezy-laid back spring day combo. Match with a simple light wash denim like the Levi's 514 Slim Straight Sky Wash Jean and paired with a basic Converse or a sport Havianas flip flop.

UNDERWEARSALE.jpg

UNDERWEAR SALE . . . probably the two best words in the English language! From March 17th to April 7th Universal Gear is selling all of their full priced "Manties" at 25% OFF ! That's right, all of your favorite underwear brands will be on SALE , Calvin Klein, 2(x)ist, C-IN2, Hugo Boss, Papi, Ginch Gonch and Andrew Christian! And if that's not enough we have several new brands we've added to the UG family who will also be joining the promotion.



NEW BRAND BIO - Todd & Terry

Retro and Kitsch are two words that I would use to describe this light hearted underwear line. This brand was inspired by the prints and designs of decades past, giving you that fun fanciful feeling of the 60's and 70's. Comfortable with a wink and a nod to a time of indulgence, freedom and shag carpeting, I find Todd and Terry to be a great fit with a groovy style.

NEW BRAND BIO - Clever Underwear

The fun colors and fabrics of Clever Underwear always remind me of the feel and energy of Miami. Bright and bold and most definitely not afraid of a little color, this brand brings the Sexy Back to underwear (Sorry Justin, no pun intended). I feel that the designers understood that they were making underwear not for the sake of utilitarian design but for the guy who wants to feel sultry and seductive. I applaud the bold colors and designs of Clever Underwear I think this brand will be a great pick for the UG customer.

!Fashionista Pick of the Week!

WETBLOG3IMAGE1.jpg

Hard and Wet! That's how I like it! Get your mind out of the gutter people, I'm talking about the fierce NEW Tees from Wet Cement! Sure to be a fashionista favorite, these three new burnout tees are a bit of hard core mixed with rebellious attitude! Hand printed and ultra comfortable these babies are a must have for the *Nista on the go.

+What is Burnout ?
"In the fashion industry, fabric with a burnout pattern is known as devore. Crafters call burnout patterns "fabric etching," because of the technique used to create them. It starts with a chemical paste, commonly containing sulfuric acid, which is applied to the fabric to create the desired pattern. The acid eats away the fibers, leaving the fabric backing behind. The fabric is rinsed to remove the acid, which does not compromise the integrity of the garment. "
