Good Grooming Starts With Shopping at Watsons

One of the best compliments you can give anyone is, “You don’t look your age.” This is, of course, when you’re implying that someone looks younger than the number of years under his or her belt and not the other way around. Well, Watsons, Asia’s leading personal care retailer, does not look its 175 years (and we mean […]

Converse Boosts the Saturation on Their Chuck Taylor II Neons

My wife and I recently argued about Chuck Taylor All Stars. She’s of the school of thought that Chucks only look good when they’re in their basic black, white, or red, with burgundy just making her grade. I, on the other hand, am totally fine with Chucks being playful, unabashed, printed, even garish. History is on […]

Gearing Up for a Filthy Summer

So, the folks out there who know me know that I figured in a very ugly skateboard accident back in 2008. I wiped out on a Sector 9 while on an easy cruise that unexpectedly and quickly transformed into a downhill drop. Smashed my front tooth, nearly tore off a nipple (OUCH), multiple cuts and […]

A Balanced Diet of Color and Style from New Balance

One thing about sneakers, some colorways work exceptionally well, while some just miss the mark. A shoe might sport colors that should, theoretically, go well with each other, yet still look really bad. There are those brands, on the other hand, who do colors sublimely well, like New Balance. This is demonstrated time and again […]

Chuck Taylors Get Fruity for Summer

Following last year’s Andy Warhol collection featuring the pop artist’s iconic banana print, Converse continues its tropical theme with the recent release of the oddly-named Chuck Taylor All Star Book Stripe. Just in time for the summer heat, these Chucks forego the banana for a repeating festive pineapple motif. They are available as hi-tops and […]
