Don’t Act Like I Never Told Ya

The Year of the Ox is no more…it’s the officially the Year of the Strap (hi top that is)! Kanye West — more sartorially known as Martin Louie The King, Jr. — has leaked yet another picture of his collaboration sneakers. This one is…..you guessed it, A HI-TOP with STRAPS (proceed to gawk and gander)! Only thing left for us to say is….Don’t act like we never told ya.

In efforts to be dog wide and not as useless as a chocolate teapot, I’d like to present a post on one of my favorite woolens, glen plaid.  The name hails from the valley of Glenurquhart in Iverness-shire, Scotland.  It’s been around for yokes but it never goes out of season.  A nice glen plaid suit lets you get your grown man on without looking like a dickey dazzler.  If you don’t want to spend a lot of sheckels then you can buy an article of cover with the same woven twill design.  Say for example, a nice pair of trousers or an accessory of some sort.

Don’t forget that my ould mucker Pee Wee Herman (before he showed his arse) made the glen plaid suit his personal uniform for years.  See any similarities?

You already know, here we go again. We figured that maybe a graph would help illustrate how far ahead of the curve WE (urban grads) really are.

u|T|ø Endorses…Japanese Chucks!

u|T|o Endorses…..ATO MATSUMOTO HIGH TOP SNEAKERS. Matsumoto is a japanese designer best known for his  space-aged sneakers worn by Kanye (also shown on this site). But THESE BAD BOYS…are just pure Bird Flu Sick!! Quarantine my FEET after I cop these! I feel like Ato sent Converse an email saying, “Anything you can do, I can do BETTER” (with an mp3 of him singing it attached)! The back of the shoe has a dope zipper/strap feature, somethin that Chuck T just never really thought about. In short, Domo Arigatoo, Mr. ATO.
