Charleston's New Class of Gentlemen

It's the #1 city in the country to visit, a cultural tourist destination with historical tours, cruise ships and now plenty of fanny packs. Peel back the commercial pomp and circumstance, and you'll find a passionate local community and yes, fashion. Charleston's Southern charm is well documented, as well as its perception of southern style, even with a thriving yearly fashion week, the men's style in the Holy City portrayed in magazines, blogs and TV is fairly fabricated. It's hard to swallow, but the fact is, bow-ties and long ties are still mostly only seen at weddings and other special occasions. The southern man has a "newer" long standing uniform that needs to go - Khakis, polo shirts, Costa del Mar's on croakies, sandals or the ugly version of Sperry's, visors if their super douchey, North Face fleece if cold - done.

Don't think this means you need to rush and call 911 for a fashion emergency, the men's fashion in the low country has taken a shift for the better in the past couple years which means there's still hope. Retail plays a big part in what men wear, in Charleston, newer downtown additions like Billy Read and Indigo & Cotton have brought in new collections of clothing that weren't options before. These shops with modern fitted more dapper menswear have a new class of fashion forward gentlemen dressing the part. New comer Desmond Kinlaw isn't playing games, voted one of Charleston's most stylish early 2012, he's since launched his personal style Chinos and Cheesecake and is taking on the men's style front full force. He's banded together a few fellow Charleston based dandies for the most dapper of afternoon meals followed by cocktails captured by non-other than the King of Southern Streets Style, Me! I'm certainly no stranger to sharp dressing, but happily made myself at home behind the camera while Kinlaw and his crew took the spot light and showed off some ankle.

It might be a short commencement this year, but often the first group of graduates are in small numbers. It's only a matter of time till more Low Country men will become alum of the new wave of men's fashion elite.

Without further ado, here's to Charleston's New Class of gentlemen, class of 2012.

She was so cute! There was a bit of wind that day in Charleston and oh did the skirt just filled with air and added so much body every time the wind blow her way. I love clothes that moves and flows, really adds life to an outfit.

Second Annual Roanoke Tweed Run 2012

This years Tweed Run was bigger, longer, and more tweedier. The amazing thing was riders who had places to be half way through or immediately following the ride still came out for the fun. Not kidding, I watched people ride off because they had other events to go to around town. Thanks for everyone who came out this year! Big things to all the sponsors who support it and the food donations for Feeding America. Till next year, here are a few photos. (PS, my Mom made a cameo in this series of photos, you'll have to figure which one she is.)

Helping Sandy Victims

I spent much of my free time last week making phone calls trying to find anyone in the fashion world helping Superstorm Sandy victims. Aside of more localized efforts in areas that were hit the hardest by the storm, I came up empty handed. I called up the American Red Cross and they sent me banner to use on the site.

If you can't find anything local to help, please click on the link and donate to help.

If you want to help on a local level, call up your local Red Cross or other deserter relief organizations, give blood, donation clothing, food or volunteer your time.

To help support your local economy and those back and running since the storm, visit local shops and shops and boutiques and spend some money! Foot traffic is probably a bit low so any business will be greatly apreciated till everyone gets back on their feet.

If you want to know how to get the codes for the banners, shot me an e-mail. I'm happy to share.
