Hat Rack

I always hear some men say " I'm not hat man." Well I say to those gentlemen "it's time for a change".This year.... Hats are just what you need to incorporate a gentlemen style in your casual or street attire. Just by placing a style crown on your head makes those around you take notice. Some men have made hats their trademark a token symbol of some looks. So....what's the perfect hat? A question often asked but believe me it's not a right or wrong answer to that. Sometimes style, crown shape, and insecurties may be the deciding factors in your pick. But I always say trust your creativity and never have boundaries. And I know your purchase will be a great one. Endorse your creativity. -L.

Layers of the Fall

I love when it's a nip in the air. It's starts my fashion juices flowing. I just love to layer up. Piecing together odds n ends can really put a stamp on your creativity. Layering isn't hard to do but just as easily can go wrong. So be mindful fit and fabric. Fall season is the introduction of vests, hoodies, jackets and blazers. These are great builders to find your layering niche. Endorse your own creativity.

I AM VALUED... #JusticeforMichael

 This country's assault on brown-skinned people is getting way out of hand. These so-called privileged gun owners are killing our black children, right in front of us, like we are cattle to be slaughtered. Knowing these shooters are wrong, in their thinking and intentions. Some of "White America" still feel they have to back and rally behind their own immorality, regardless of moral standard. That's so sickening and disheartening that you still have a mind set of a person born in slave/ jim crow era. What are you mad about? The fact that we are in your schools, neighborhoods, shopping marts, movies and yes in some families. But I do understand I would fear kings and queens too. Brown and Martin's killings was tragic because of the lack of understanding and embracing someone who is different from yourself. We are different!!! Black men and women are different. The way we talk, dress, and act. That's who we are but definitely not targets. I'm a father, brother, uncle, son, and grandson if you take my life I will be missed. So think of that when you decide to pull a trigger. Old white America is dying out yours ways and thinking as your children are encountering other races, creeds and characters, they are now seeing that grandpa's teachings is being buried with all the hate they created in the first place because we are different. I can't change what and who I am. If you're looking for something else, I'm sorry. My skin is darkened by the rays of God's light. My hair naturally curly, the mane of a kingly beast. And I inherited the soul of scholars.... Forever I'M BLACK..... FoREVER I'M VALUED!!! - L. J Longshore

Welcome to Gritty Rebel Gents!!!! Where the Gritty are welcome, the Rebel is adored and the Gentleman is a king. Freedom at its best!!! As fashion grows, so do the boldness of men's style. In a time when street gear, was revered as lazy and poorly crafted, it seems time has changed! More than street wear or as I call it "Street Chic" has crushed today's runway from New York to Milan. The introductions of the revival of pop culture has begun. Street Chic will forever breathe in fashion. So ask yourself " How gritty can my rebelish attitude, propel me in an era of gentlemen?
