On May 6, 2011, in Eyewear, by Ryan & Ben

If your Cinco De Mayo celebration ended on Seis De Mayo, there is a good chance you weren’t too happy to see the bright rays of the sun this morning.  That being said, our bet is that you probably made sure that your sunglasses were already on before you walked out the door.  Whether it is because you are trying to stop the pounding in your head, or just trying to avoid a morning glare, a quality pair of sunglasses is an absolute necessity.  If you are in need of a new pair of everyday shades, take a look at the Harpoon ($149-$249) by Costa Del Mar.

Cotton Pocket Squares by J. McLaughlin

On May 5, 2011, in Accessories, Mens, by Ryan & Ben

The Kentucky Derby is fast approaching, and if you are planning on sipping mint juleps and watching the horses run in person, or with a group of friends elsewhere, you are going to have to dress appropriately.  Of course, there will be countless seersucker suits of all colors, and more blue blazers than your local Brooks Brothers normally has in stock.  While there is nothing wrong with seersucker suits and blue blazers, nobody wants to look just like the rest of the crowd.  One way to kick things up a bit without going too overboard is a pocket square, some of our favorites are the Cotton Pocket Squares ($25) by J.McLaughlin.

Skipjack Women’s Polo by Southern Tide

On May 4, 2011, in Shirts, Womens, by Ryan & Ben

We love polos, short sleeve or long sleeve, bright or muted, it doesn’t matter, a crisp polo is never going to be a bad look.  With a classic simplicity that will never go out of style a well fitting polo is a versatile piece that will never leave you feeling out of place.  That being said, we haven’t really talked much about one kind of polo that we really like, the women’s polo.  No, not for us, but for any girl reading this site.  It should come as no surprise that one of our favorite women’s polos comes from a brand that makes one of our favorite men’s polos, Southern Tide.  Their Skipjack Women’s Polo ($68) is everything a women’s polo should be.

Madras Long Sleeve by Cape Madras

On May 3, 2011, in Mens, Shirts, by Ryan & Ben

Lately, we have been seeing more and more short sleeve button down shirts.  When done right, they can be a great choice, unfortunately, many times they just aren’t that flattering.  While there are definitely options out there that will look awesome, we tend to keep things simple and just roll up the sleeves of our favorite long sleeve button downs during the warm months.  One option that we love for this summer is the Men’s Madras Long Sleeve ($98) by Cape Madras.

Dalton Short by Jack Donnelly

On May 2, 2011, in Mens, Shorts, by Ryan & Ben

When it comes to weekends, we normally end up in shorts and polos.  This past weekend was no different, except this time we got to check out a pair of shorts from an up and coming brand based outside of Atlanta, Jack Donnelly.  We’ve been on the hunt for a solid pair of khaki shorts for quite some time and it seems like our search is finally over with their Dalton Short ($68).
