Fictional characters have a great influence in our lives. They unconsciously dictate morales, mannerisms, who we are attracted to, lifestyle choices, and…in our case, fashion. So we’ve decided to feature some of those influential fictional characters on our blog. First up on the list?
“It’s only after we’ve lost everything that we’re free to do anything. “
“I can’t get married – I’m a thirty-year-old boy. “
Duren has that rough around the edges, I’m cool whether I wear a shirt or not, rugged, dirty appeal that men seem to want to emulate. His 70s flair, which consists of print shirts with oversized collars, aviator shades, vintage leather jackets, all amount to one word: stylin’. Of course, add to that a couple of scars, bruises, and one serious over confidence complex and you have Tyler Durden. Who wouldn’t want him as an alter-ego?
Stay tuned for more of your favorite STYLE ICONS. Tomorrow who will it be? Can you guess?
In case you haven’t noticed, there has been a record heat wave going on in New York City. (Also, in case you haven’t noticed, CLM is based out of NY so we’re speaking from the thick of it.) It’s seriously…swampy out there friends.
So how do New Yorkers stay cool? Of course it’s a rarity for anyone to actually have central AC, and those window units spike your electric bill throug
h the roof (where all the heat resides. ‘Cause, you know, heat travels upwards…) Well, turns out there is a reason why there is a Starbucks on every other corner in Manhattan: to save us all from the heat via iced drinks, fraps, and…you guessed it, central AC. Maybe your office AC broke down, maybe it’s still too stuffy at your desk, where to go? You guessed it…Starbucks.
Other ways to stay cool, and we’re not strictly talking temperature here.
Cut Off Shorts:
This look is in for both men and women alike. Take an old pair of jeans, or even new because they will still look awesome, and simply cut where you want them to end. Give yourself a few extra inches because they will ride up once they are on your body and become shorter. This is always true when washing, the frayed ends will make the length rise slightly. It’s better to cut them too long at first, then too short.

The Perfect Sandal (or Mandal)
Unless you have perfect manicured feet, there is no reason for men to wear flipflops. One of the biggest fashion faux pas is a snagged toe foot in a flip flop in the summertime. Don’t be a victim this season. Try something sporty like these Nike slip ons (http://www.zappos.com/nike-solarsoft-slide-black-white?zfcTest=fw:1)
Check out this amazing, informative article from Askmen.com: http://www.askmen.com/fashion/fashiontip_400/454b_mens-sandals-dos-donts.html. They give you a complete low down on the DOs and DON’Ts of male sandal wearing…also known as Mandals.
“It can be downright difficult to find a men’s sandal that is both simple and stylish if you want something other than flip-flops. The solution: a cross-strap sandal. There are no bells and whistles here; just two uncomplicated straps to hold your foot in place. It’s also the perfect sandal if you find a traditional flip-flop that slips on between your toes to be uncomfortable. Just be careful not to go with certain faux-leather types or you could risk looking like grandpa at the retirement home.”

The Shame Circle Story Number One: This “party of six” refused to pay the 17% gratuity added to their dinner check. It clearly stated on the menu that any party of five or more would have this gratuity attached–so what did the restaurant do to these low-brow, “I don’t want to tip” folks? Called the police. And they paid. Good for your Fishermen’s Inn! Let this be a lesson, dear patrons, never, ever go into a restaurant and not tip your server.
See the ridiculous fiasco by clicking on the below: Family Locked in Restaurant After Refusing to Pay Tip Number two: Hehe, only in New Jersey: This orange–ehm tan woman from New Jersey thought it would be a good idea to take her little girl to the…tanning bed. Too much Jersey Shore, perhaps? But the mother, accused of child endangerment, says that her daughter only goes into the room with her and plays, she doesn’t actually get in the tanning bed.

Hilarious Quote of the Week: “I’m in the booth, she’s outside playing Princess, trying to be like Mommy, like barbie dolls and stuff like that.”
I’m sorry lady, Princess…? Barbie dolls like…mommy? Oh goodness, we love strange news.
Orange ya glad you don’t look like this?
Number Three, Shame on you Kya! On April 26th, the family of an adorable little toddler, captured the following footage of a lioness trying to eat their toddler. Luckily, there was a thick, pane glass window separating the pair but watch as the lioness tries to engulf the baby’s head in her mouth. Must have been the zebra sweatshirt. See, hoodies are controversial even in the animal kingdom world!
GQ.com recently uploaded their Spring Trend report for 2012–and they hit the mark. GQ Writer Jim Moore features a series of over 100 looks taken straight from the runway and we’ve chosen just a few to highlight here.
The Blue Suit
The blue suit is perfect for spring and well into summer. Just because the weather brightens and the air warms up, doesn’t mean you’re exempt from wearing a suit to the office, partner meetings, and business dinners. Instead of heavy woolen and dark fabric, opt for something lighter like linen, preferably colored in light blue.
The All-American Look
There’s something ultra-classic about a pair of rugged jeans coupled with a jean jacket. Incorporate the new trends with this look, such as rolling up with pant leg slightly and pairing it with a brightly colored shoe.
Striped Knit Wear
Stripes always make a comeback every few years, but this season we’re seeing them on knitwear, which is pretty cool for spring. They are popping up on ties and accessories, like this Nautica look for spring.
The Suede Wingtip
Ah, enough about this shoe already, right? No! The chic comeback of the wingtip cannot be reckoned with. Get a pair, any color, this spring.
Change your sheets regularly. Dirty sheets lead to facial break outs. It’s quite an obvious tip, but many people don’t bother to change their sheets every other week. The longer that pillow case sits at the head of your bed, the more acne you’ll have by morning…Farah Averill from Askmen.com says the following: “It’s particularly important to lay out some fresh bedding if you frequently have a female in your bed, as residue from women’s makeup and hair products can get left behind on your sheets and subsequently be transferred to your face.”
Even Simon Bolivar had to change his sheets every week (or so). Check out this vintage stamp Oval Cufflinks set
