Masculine Revolution — Discussion on the Menswear Renaissance

Bless up from your feet to your head-top,

We Go Again.

I started this discussion years ago with anyone who would listen and as a young artist without resources I did all I could to share it, being the inception of the blog. My guiding Principles and Philosophies dictate every fashion article Write since the beginning. Theres not One article on this website that doesn’t have distinction among my forecast.

I grew to enjoy writing as a hobby and ended up writing over 100 articles in 2019. Here in 2020 as we approach 2022 where the start of the Renaissance will be as clear as day I wanted to document all things that have been happening. from the art Industry of which I love with every fibre of my being,, the men who speak to men and I understand as propagators of the ethos of what masculinity is and represent it well we all have the same mind and way of understanding.

I decided to make a video on the Ethos and will soon make a video of artists representing Masculinity as they see fit in fashion particularly as it becomes the vehicle of what we see as the conversation maker. Each menswear designer is creating something for not the smallest substrata but the wider demographic.

As much I love avant-garde and andro fashion that is part of a substrata and cross dressing as well aas wearing womenswear is part of an even smaller respectable substrate that needs representation equally . Right beside the designers that are speaking  to masculinity as it is and grow with it.

What we are seeing in the fashion industry is a Menswear revolution where we are able to represent masculinity in art in ways it wasn’t able before. the foundations being working man, streetwear, industrial tech wear and other things laying the first firmament the foundation of masculinity being the principles of utility and simplicity of use, evolving the conversation and design language.

A Thought On: Mediocrity (Live in the middle pt.2) Perfect Level

We go again,

I find mediocrity a really big deal. Considering so many people live in it, exist in it court it and feel it. There just seems to be an understanding that mediocrity is okay. I’m so open to that idea it just sounds like bliss being okay with a normal life; Although the thought of normal isn’t becoming of me I still covet it like Odysseus.

I am incredibly okay with mediocrity, although I feel forced to live out of it and observe it knowing it can’t observe itself. Mediocrity Is my favourite thing on this planet. People who try new things happen to be mediocre at it, whenever you try something new the result is your mediocrity.

I don’t see it as people falling short of greatness I see it as people experimenting and experiencing life which is the flavour life offers. Like I said I am not allowed to live in mediocrity because I observe it. Like most Genii, Artists Mathematicians and Highly Ranked Religious folk.

Theres one place mediocrity is not allowed in art, Religion or mathematics. All the superior thinkers in buddhism, shamans science and Art all come to the one conclusion of Nirvana. We explore and traverse the world of thought telling people what we think as life goes on we all end up in the same place. No one after them listens and instead follows them, mostly because life is about the journey.  We all end up in the same place though, thousands of years worth of written texts all ending up in the same place. Its mystical.

I guess observable greatness is what makes mediocrity exist and vice versa. I never know when I am being great but people from time to time tell me I am. Such is life I seek the tranquility people chase the storm of Genius and Higher thought.

Want to wear: Fear of God — Raid, light bone #PrimeNYT

Bless up from your feet to your head top

We go again

EByJ_RFW4AASCfL.jpgThese creps are so hard to me I didn’t really warm up to the moccasins or the shoot around or the ones but these mids, the raids, are the highlight of the collection the cross strap I see these FOG pieces as one for the wardrobe in multiple colourways.ECy1Y3aX4AMSSCW.jpg

Right now these are my favourite 180’s next to Yoons Ambush AirMax 180 which is also fire. These though, the layering of the straps over the laces which whip all the way round the back as well as the pull cord on the laces it add a much needed texture that I like to see in trainers.

ECy1Y20W4AEJj67.jpgThe clean canvas colourways of the Bone grey already has me seeing variations we will never see with this trainer but I would love to bring to life. A pastel yellow strap that would pop right off the canvas or a black toe cap to match the Swoosh would be elegant.

Rhyme & Reason: Make the decision to live on purpose #PrimeNYT

We go again,

Recently I had a revelation and that revelation can’t be explained outside context and that context comes in a question — That question is; who do you want to be?

I asked myself this question for a short amount of time (Macro). It took me months to wrap my head round who I wanted to be it took me months. Not to plan my life or how I want to make money or what job I want. Those are still being understood, what I really ended up doing for years was asking myself who I wanted to be.

I knew this question was important because I have earned enough money/ known I can make a commission of my skills/ get a contract and I’ve gained enough notoriety and fame to where people knew me for one thing and in all of that I never felt whole.

I’ve come to find out I had to ask myself who do I want to be. I was blessed with gifts and an amazing talent which has earned me many creative skill which means I earned choice and the thing with choice is when you have to much life can get tricky when you’re starting out because you know no matter what you can always find another way. However to really win in life you need to make a choice within your options, and I have an abundance of options to choose from which opens doors for me but that doesn’t always means those opportunities are mine.

I have never felt good doing just anything and making money in “whatever way I can”. I have always been intentional and wanted to live my life on purpose. I have the intense ability to work hard and work a lot that isn’t the case for everyone but for me it meant these choices were not all the way positive because if I’m someone that lives life on purpose I have to make the decision and choose who I want to be. So I asked myself who do I want to be and make the decision.

What I learned in my abundance of opportunities because of my skill is that not every opportunity is right for me and I had to give myself a guiding philosophy and live by principles that made sense for what I wanted to engage in long term. These philosophies and principle came from all the questions I asked myself for years on end in order to truly gauge what really matters, as when I found out what mattered I found my purpose and when I found my purpose I truly distinguished myself as someone who knew what they were doing.

You see it’s not the statement of me living life on purpose that’s the key it’s my principles as a humans I created in determining what I want to do with my life that bought me to the answer of the question “who do I want to be”. I find no matter who you are if you find the answer to that you will live a more meaningful life, not an easier one or a more fun one more meaningful because you were a better person.

Black Renaissance — Kerby Jean-Raymond, Pyer-Moss #PrimeNYT

bless up from your feet to your head top,

I have wanted to talk about Kerby for a while now and I say there’s no time like the present. I’ve known about Kerby since the Forbes 30 under 30 (little did I know that was when he started the company) it made me see and be able to tell myself yes I as a black man can be on this list.

The most recent list is composed of one black Male in my 3 categories but that’s okay I know I can do it I want to inspire like he did me.

That is not the reason I revere him not to do with his accolades but his personality and mellow attitude while being unapologetically himself, which happens to be some degree of thorough black man who did not want to sell out.

As he talks about his sneaker deal he talks about making a deal with the devil treating people terrible halfway across the world. We all know the business but to just understand his reason for picking reebok made me appreciate and want to buy into him a bit more.

Hearing him walking away from the table while a company wanted to profit from blackness is the type of character I see prevailing in the black renaissance as well as him being the first designer to talk about blackness in the best way he keeps that integrity with his money as well. The same energy is kept and he prevails through it all.

Although he has had terrible business acumen with his past business partners listening to him details that gave me insight to really how he’s giving it up and is ready to teach these young designers how to look at their contracts.

Stay composed and keep your neck up
