One of my favorite brands, Saturdays NYC, released their Fall 2014 line.  With the push back to basics I appreciate their stripe work and color blocking.  They truly have one of the best oxford woven shirt games out there.

I got some of my favorite pieces below.  I have to say the Paul Birdseye Raglan is one of my favorites.

If there is one thing my wife and I are passionate about, it's food.  We will crack the bank to try a new spot and be able to experience something truly amazing.  So when The Hundreds and "FOOD" created EAT MEET we signed right up.  Also, the fact that it's taking place at East Borough is even better because it was a favorite spot of mine in Costa Mesa before I moved.  The crew made a mean banh mi and jasmine lime iced tea.  I tried to replicate that drink and could never get it right.  Looking forward to checking out their new LA spot.

Celebrated my 2 year anniversary with my lovely wife and enjoyed some eats at LA spot chi SPACCA.  It is a cool intimate spot right next door to Pizzeria Mozza and serves up some decadent options.  Check the run down below, and we will be back for the steak.

Thats pork fat butter.

The Beef Stew & Bone Marrow pie...the pie is baked around the bone.  


Got this new piece, so I don't have to lug my D80 around.  The Fujifilm X20 has been a nice acquisition since it has a retro look and is super light weight.

After many seasons of heavy prints we are coming into a cycle of basics.  I am not talking about the GAP basic days of just denim and white tees, but solids in new silouhettes.  The Quite Life is one of my favorite brands that can both mix wild prints and also push the dial on design.  Here is a mix of that with the fish tail colorblock windbreaker and the suede jockey cap.  The same transition can be seen in footwear as white is all the craze, so the Vans Old Skool is my go to for the season.

Tried the Pacsun Skinny Joggers today and I have to say they are not bad.  It has a tailored fit and is just the right length.  The fabric is also light weight, which is nice while navigating this Summer heat.  Plus I broke out the new The Hundreds Phoenix sunnies.

So I have been slumming it the past couple of days at the studio shooting Holiday 14 for Vans.  There is really nothing wrong sporting some sweat shorts on the job.  Why interfere with comfort?  Now I realized that I should have been doing this from the get go.
