The Parisian Kid

Even when you live in Paris, playing the tourist around Trocadero square, in front of the Tour Eiffel has something heady. Mingling with the crowd just for a few minutes, feeling like you don’t live here, rediscovering things you walk past every morning with different eyes is a good experience. In the evening, lights are giving the city something special, so we enjoyed the moment to go for like tourists waiting for the Tour Eiffel to set alight, sourrounded by hawkers. Dressed like a real Parisian Kid – oversized jacket, suspenders, rolled up jeans – I took a stroll at the most popular esplanade in the world.

Those rounded glasses, a white shirt and some striped suspenders are giving me the timeless Parisian student look, just coming straight from a philosophy class at the Sorbonne. Or a rascally look ready to animate to streets of Paris, ready to overthrow the July Monarchy.

These trousers-like jeans – with sober tone on tone stitching, matte black button, no rivets – deserve to be worn without a belt. SLightly rolled up, the jeans botton perfectly match these ballet-inspired derbies.

At the pub

Entering into a pub after work is like going from a world to another. Falling into spatio-temporal flaw and landing in a world where the time stops, where people smoke cigarettes to the filter (when there is a filter), where you build up your arm muscles in some elbow-bending contest with your fellows. There are several clans, those who like large-breasted blonds, some slimmer, the red-haired amateurs and those who like brunettes. In spite of this cultural mix, everyone lives in harmony… especially for the first couple of drinks! No clashes, people shout while watching the game, drink, chat about everything and nothing, then drink again, joke, then drink over and over again while minutes pass like a tape running in fast-forward. Still in a picturesque place, anywhere in the world, the pub is a place where you could imagine being right in Dublin, London or Glasgow is you close your eyes while you go out of it. The owner, a fifty year old guy nostalgic of his student years, always display his whisky reserve. Meanwhile, the night goes on, people are still talking as a lot of glasses are broken, and the boat pitches when you try to empty your big belly. Going at the pub feels so well that you could spend a whole night into it…

2013 US moustache and beard championship

Selected the 8 October 2013 by Romano as "the garagerocker"

At the beginning of September, a great event happened: the beard and moustache 2013 national US championship. New Orleans, South-East of the country, saw many men with heavy facial hair parade for this contest. A precision, all participants could enter the game in different categories, the moustaches and the beards being split up into two families. The “natural” category does not allow the use of any gel or wax, apart from that, may other styles could participate: the Dali, the English, the Imperial, the Hungarian, the Fu Manchu Goatee, the Musketeer, the Garibaldi beard, the Verdi, etc. To top it all, in the “freestyle” category, no holds barred… Of course following certain (quite stricts) rules: judges have to decide which one of the competitors has a facial hair enhancing the best his general appearance, style and personality. The main criteria are originality and creativity.

The World’s championships will take place in Germany, at Leinfelden-Echterdingen, near Stuttgart, on the 2nd of November 2013! If you want to enter the competition, or even attend them, please visit the insciption page. For those who shaved after waking up this morning, sorry guys but you’ve missed your chance for this time. Unless your facial hear grows very quickly, the only thing to do is preparing for the next championship in two years (the place hasn’t been announced yet).

Adidas Originals Geometric Pack

These times, Size?, the sneaker shop, seems to like revising Adidas old shapes. They have just released the Geometric Pack: a series of two classic models from the “three stripes” brand into original colorways. Here, the ZX 5000 and the Oregon Ultra Tech are given this “pop” geometric twist in background of the ever 3 stripes for a black/grey/white color palette with touches of orange and red. Both are coming in basic running meterials: mesh, suede and smooth leather, then original soles. We love this pack, made with rare models and dressed with quirky colors. To get your pair, know that this is a Size? exclusive pack. The ZX 5000 is sold for £80 and the Oregon for £75. An advice, hurry up guys!
