Greek 2 Chic: i.luv.ur.gurl

You know how guys like supportive women? Well, if you didn’t know, now you do! Some call it team spirit, others call it marking their territory– either way, when ladies rock an outfit that screams “That is MY man, HANDS OFF!”, it makes us erupt. The haters get jealous, the homies give respect, and point blank….IT’S SEXY as hell. Quietly…. in the most manly, Barry White-esque internal voice….we’re sayin, “Aww, that’s sweeeeet”. This post is dedicated to yall. Here are some looks for the ladies who wanna rep with their guy (the ape, dog, centaur, or rabbit):

The Gilda Gladiator Sandal by Sam Edelman. The MUST HAVE item of the summer, gladiator-style sandals are a good look for women. But peep the color accents…PUNCTILIO!

The Enamel Stud Bangle by AV Max Jewelry. Accessories that actually have symbolism are very unique. Cop that!

The Glasses Tee by Public Domain. STUNNA SHADES GO!! — even on a tee-shirt. This is a clever way to support, plus you look fresh as ’85.

Wifey Material 2 by Two In the Shirt. This is probably one of the most controversial, AND most popular tees out right now. The one shown here is a men’s shirt, but I’ve seen women rocking the size small. I feel like these women exist (not necessarily MY wifey, but to each his own)….soo…why not rock the shirt.

The Urban Graduate [transport]

with one comment

I’m not sure if Mobil/Exxon really care, but Urban Graduates EVERYWHERE are being hit hard by the skyrocketing prices of oil. We drive a wide range of vehicles…. old hatchbacks, gas-guzzling spaceships, “I can drive over anything” SUVs, the ever-fashionable Passat, and occasionally, Daddy’s old Mercedez; but I can almost guarantee that NONE of our cars run on old beer cans and banana peels (i.e. The Delorean). It’s great that Hybrid, Electric, and Bio-Diesel cars are all on the market — but let’s be honest….is the Urban Graduate in a financial position to purchase any of these?

Allow me to introduce my nifty friend, THE BICYCLE!! Bicycles (Bikes for short) have been around for almost 200 years (ten years shy). These two-wheeled devices transport a rider from one place to another place…just like cars do– but with considerably LESS GAS (actually…none at all)! AND, they can PARK ANYWHERE for free.

Okay, let me be serious, people ride bikes all the time. As an Urban Graduate, do not restrict yourself to the dogmatic ways of Cars. Pick up a bike, and pedal to work, to school, to the bank, or wherever you deem reasonably within distance. You’ll save a few bucks, burn a few calories, and take care of business.

**The RAW Cannondale Special Ed. Bicycle by Cannondale and G-Star Denim.

Check out these items from around the web:

Striped Jersey Shopper Tote Bag by Marc Jacobs. Fly, in such a casual, beach-esque way. It’s not doing too much, but it shows that you’re on point with your taste.

Reva Ballet Flats by Tory Burch. I don’t know what it is with women and ballet flats. YALL LOVE THEM JOINTS! I know that us fellas…don’t understand why you want to walk around all day basically barefoot.  Nevertheless, these are some really fresh flats.

The Pinstripe Old Skool Lo Pro by Vans. This sneaker has had the BIGGEST come up in the last few years (thanks to all my Thizzlamic Folk out in the Yay Area)! I feel like this is the perfect crossover shoe for ladies; you can be active, and be fresh.

Urban Takeout is still in the development stage of our “Century” line. As always, peep some of these items from around the web that you can flip into your personal collection:

Nike Air Max ’95. Voted one of America’s favorite shoes (for sneakerheads of course). They are almost as classic as all white K-Swiss, Air Force Ones, Chucks, or J’s. Color combination is CRAAAZY though!

The Revolver Watch by Nixon. CLEEEAN! If I could whistle…..maaan. The key word here is VERSATILITY. You could rock this timepiece in almost any setting.

Gucci Bamboo Horsebit Moccasins. Uh yeeeeah….this one is for brothas who’s pockets aren’t touchin. Well-made, high quality, and beyond appropriate (loafers in the summer with no socks, GQ casual look).

THE AIR YEEZY’S (tan/neutral) by NIKE. This is probably the most exclusive sneaker out right now. He rocks them in concert! PLUS, these joints GLOW IN THE DAMN DARK.

The Elk Fish Tee by Artful Dodger. Different, eye-catching, and a good compliment piece.

The Spring to Summer then Fall Overshirt by LRG. This piece is DOPE! Again, VERSATILITY. Dress it up or down, rock with ya Willy Wonka’s (loafers) or your sneakers. The seersucker is what turns this piece from regular overshirt to fashionable garment.

The Urban Graduate [defined]

with 3 comments

Currently, we are in the final development stages for a clothing line that caters to the demographic we call, “The Urban Graduate“. However, alot of people have questions about what the term entails. Well, to answer — the Urban Graduate is basically a student of life and his/her environment. This student understands contemporary trends, but is always looking to be individually innovative. Resourcefulness, high aptitude and a classic style are all trademarks of the Urban Graduate. Employ the phrase in your daily vocabulary!!!! Let’s take UTØ to the top.
