12 times out of 10, you’ll catch us wearing long socks with sneakers and shorts. We’re not lazy. We’re EFFICIENT. It’s our unofficial uniform for Fall, complete with our newfound Autumnal penchant for jalapeño burgers from WesBurger down on Mission St. Continue Reading
Enter: the turtleneck sweater. The easiest way to look as luxe as a chesterfield couch — which, to be honest, we’d like for someone to buy for us; a chesterfield couch, that is. That and a dozen diamond rings.
But, back to our turtleneck sweater ‘shoddy to luxe’ shortcut!
When it comes to dressing ourselves, we’re still learning. And when it comes to dressing ‘up’ a look, we’re still in elementary school (well… Chris is in pre-school; Brock is a little more advanced than that). Thus comes the significance of the turtleneck sweater.
The 411: pair said turtleneck sweater with a pair of solid wash jeans for an amped up casual look. Our preference for turtlenecks being the ones from Banana Republic, all because of the quality and price. 100% Italian merino wool for $89.50.
This week marks a defining moment in our lives when we decided to fully forego financial responsibility, á la our attempt to be the modern day male equivalents of Carrie Bradshaw, and
bought pieces of art (read: the most beautiful sneakers we’ve ever seen… excuse us, we’re going to cry). One pair of sneakers, from Gucci (for Chris!). The other, from Aquatalia (for Brock!). Shown here, in different color options:
Never mind our obsession (like the rest of the world’s) with Alessandro Michele’s endeavors at Gucci as of late, we’re just being wise investors. Oh, and we also got this pair (for Brock). Oopsie poopsie. We’re merely investing as one would do with real estate; our assets just go on our feet. And are perfectly embroidered with florals and flames. Yes.
Here’s our take on ‘insider trading,’ then: these sneakers are prime for investing in 😉
Here’s the 411 on denim we like: we typically gravitate towards jeans with lighter washes, whether distressed or solid. But, when we do adventure out for a dark rinse, we go for a dark indigo shade (bonus point for raw selvedge) or solid black, never distressed, but maybe ripped.
Never distressed, meaning, wearing distressed dark denim is akin to eating vegetables on a daily basis for us — we just say no, we can’t really explain why, JUST GIVE US A CHEESEBURGER.
Given that Neiman Marcus’ jeans department plays host to some of our favorite denim staples (read; practically every pair of jeans from Rag & Bone… we need MORE), we figured it was a perfect occasion to celebrate one of the world’s greatest gifts to the human race — SALES!
Here are the 15 pairs of jeans we love:
And on the note of shopping for jeans, we also perused the Suede and Shearling Outerwear section, as one does at 2am on a Thursday morning after already spending two hours shopping online, and figured we’d share the following too.

Somewhere in-between wanting to look like 1) sk8er bois from an Avril Lavigne music video and 2) an incessant couple who matches their clothes on the daily (WHO? US?!), this is the State of the Union, á la our style, as prescribed by our addiction to charging our credit cards for a new wardrobe every week.
We’ve heard it said, your style should be a reflection of who you are at that moment; how you’re feeling.
The photo above, then, seems to say, “Don’t fuck with us, our stomachs are hurting because we’ve been eating beautiful, delicious junk food all week and we DO NOT want to eat salads tonight because we desperately need fiber” (true to life), where the photo below says, “We’re whispering secrets to each other about our archenemies (anyone who hates cats) and laughing, HAHAHAHAH, OMG, so funny!”
