On Monday the 18th, I accompanied Matt Gill and Matt Paine as they traversed the halls of the Mascone Center in the SOMA to gear up Wingtip for the year in the name of munching and noshing. This was my first time at this jam-packed event and it did not disappoint. Encompassing the entire arena was a plethora of snacks and accoutrements galore. With the guidance of the two Matts, I was able to traverse the overwhelming event that was the Winter Fancy Food Show. We meet with vendors of old, vendors of new, and explored new culinary happenings. Tasting authentic Balsamico. Caviar from California Caviar Company Salami slices infused with Absinthe by Zoe's Meats. Tasting local dairy by Bleating Heart Cheese. Meats from the East. Tasting Filipino Coconut Roasted Sea Salt. Saying "Hi" to Raaka Chocolate. Jerky for when you're tired of charcuterie. For Dessert. "Bye have a great time!" Read More...
Award season is coming...
Last night the kickoff to the annual award season began with 2016 Golden Globes (awards for TV and film). Always a great inspiration for menswear and style, below are five of our favorite and least favorite looks for the night.
Michael Fassbender- Classic, clean, and simple from head to toe.
Jon Hamm- Even after the ending of Mad Men, this guy does not stop being dapper.
Aziz Ansari- Always well-dressed and fly, we're huge fans of the black tartan. Great twist on a traditional look.
David Oyelowo- Bold and not in a bad way.
Rami Malek- Midnight Blue tuxes are always a good choice. Lapel pins are also a nice touch.
Michael Shannon- Your tux is supposed to fit, not look like it's gonna suffocate you.
Bryan Cranston- Black on black on black? You're Heisenberg, not a waiter.
Quentin Tarantino- What's with the "ghetto" look man?
Alan Cumming- We have no idea what's going on here.
Wiz Khalifa- We also have no idea what's going on here.Read More...
