…just kindly remind him or her (and your kids if you got ‘em) that they can also get their own right here.
Whether you live on Flexington Avenue and you’re buried in Excel all day or you’re pulling clopening shifts and your Tumblr gets more attention than your iMessages, you’ve got some extra dough burning in your pocket and your feet could use some love. I know you do!
So, where are my coins going this month? Not on a big fat date or a weekend away. Fashion over function!!!!—ing in social settings, man! Behold, my almost reasonable list of sneakers that I’ve got my eye on instead of 2-for-1 apps and bullshit cocktails from a hip new bar with a subpar Tinder fling.

Pull and peel, scratch and sniff, shake and bake.
These Converse Jack Purcell x Maison Martin Margiela painted sneakers crack and chip as time goes on AS TIME FREAKING GOES ON and transform into a red pair of sneakers.
According to Mr. Porter product description of doom: “Process is just as important as form for Parisian label Maison Martin Margiela, and these Converse sneakers have been hand-painted over the outside to crack and chip with use, revealing a unique finish. Beneath is a pair of red leather Jack Purcells, they offer discreet athletic comfort as well as forward-looking design.”
Alternate ending: you skip the time traveling, cop a pair of these classic red chucks and drop some White-Out stolen from the office supply closet:
I’m diving nose deep into the new colorways that just launched today over at Warby Parker. I’ve never done the clear frames before but it’s not #TransformationTuesday for nothing! Hello crystal, baby. Act Fast! Act Quickly! Act like your bank account ain’t busted! These limited editions go quickly and the Percey frame fits my face the best. Check it out here: Waterway Collection.
…because it’s full of wind currents.
A few years ago, I fell in love with this Carven women’s collection of map printed clothing and wanted to get a piece of my own. Turns out, no luck for men. So after a quick eBay search, I nabbed this “map print” shirt and have enjoyed it since. It’s relaxed fit makes it ideal for warm weather and I couldn’t be happier with the gorgeous map print.
A few printed + patterned shirts for you. Bonus: They’re on sale!
