Preparing for the weekend with some great choices all around. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Iโ€™m stuck at work right now, but Iโ€™ll be heading home soon and preparing for a little bourbon tasting for a friend of mine. Cheers to the weekend! ๐Ÿฅƒ

Itโ€™s almost Friday and I decided for some chunky lug sole monkey boots today because why not! These are awesome and weโ€™re a steal from Sierra Trading Post since they were factory seconds. Kick ass! And they go great with some black selvedge denim. Happy almost Friday yโ€™all!

Just trying to get through this week in one piece. Itโ€™s October but someone forgot to let SoCal know as temps have been hitting the 90โ€™s here. At least the mornings are a bit cool. Still.... canโ€™t wait for colder temps and more layers. Have a good Wednesday people. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Itโ€™s Monday again people. Unfortunate though that may be, at least we know the weekend eventually comes as sure as the sun sets. In the meantime we have #markalbertmonday to keep us going. Shown here is their derby in coyote roughout leather. They are durable and refined and perfect for showing off the mankles in warm weather. Hope you all have a great week!

Itโ€™s Sunday morning and all I can think about is that the weekend is more than half over. At least we can all look forward to the #selvedgesunday posts right? Here is mine with my @pure_blue_japan and @markalbertboots derbyโ€™s. A solid warm weather kit that will be put away soon. With cold weather coming soon hopefully, Iโ€™ll be back to hiding my mankles. ๐Ÿ˜œ Happy Sunday people! Make it a good one!

Happy FriYay people. Hope the week has treated you well. If not at least the day is almost over and the weekend is just around the corner. It was a hot one the other day when my home slice @melimelloh took this shot for me. The days I can rock the mankles will soon be over and despite how much I love these @markalbertboots Derbyโ€™s, boot season is almost here and Iโ€™m honestly very much looking forward to it! Especially as I have a new pair almost ready. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Make it a good weekend people!

Some quality leather goods makes me happier than most things if Iโ€™m honest. Especially after some quality wear is put into them. These pieces all have some great patina/wear and the leather looks beautiful from it. All veg tan except the watch band which is whiskey shell. And if you love your leather goods, you will take good care of them. There are a ton of great leather care products out there, but I generally prefer @smithsleatherbalm as itโ€™s all natural, works well, and smells great! Take care of your leather goods and they will take care of you. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Standing tall with my Truman Fango boots on this here #trumantuesday ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป I gotta say. As my only pair of Trumanโ€™s, these boots are just gorgeous and that leather keeps getting better and better. Also the masterpiece denim on my @fitted.underground jeans is pretty fantastic! Have a great Tuesday folks!

This photo was not posed. My buddy Isaac is just that good a photographer.  Full disclosure the photo was totally posed and I learned this move from watching Miami Vice. Too bad my shades are cheap prescription sunglasses and not some nice designer shades. Anyway. Happy Monday I guess (still not a real thing). Hope the week treats you better than the president treats his oath of office. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Another throwback to that one day I got all dressed up in a suit and some fancy shoes. These @meerminmallorca brogued cap toe oxfords met the requirements of being affordable, well made, and gorgeous. I hope I have more formal events coming up so I have more reasons to wear these stunning shoes. In the meantime, at least I got this cool photo! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Throwback to last Saturday when I attended an awesome wedding in Long Beach. Picked up this suit for $130 from JCPenny and got the pants tailored. Might have gone a bit too narrow on the taper, but otherwise for the money I think it worked well. Working on getting a custom suit made soon. In the meantime I suppose this will do. Have a great weekend yโ€™all!

Gearing up for the weekend. This little bottle of @fourrosesbourbon single barrel is the perfect travel size bottle for the bourbon fan! Pair that with a great cigar like this QD50 and you are loving life. Hereโ€™s to the weekend yโ€™all! Have a great one! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Welp itโ€™s Sunday and you know what they means. Back to work tomorrow but also #selvedgesunday ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป So here we are with some nice double indigo selvedge denim from @railcarfinegoods . These have been fading very nicely and I am excited to see how they continue to do so. Plus my new @chippewaboots Monkey boots with the Vibram lug sole. Iโ€™ve named these boots the Chunky Monkeyโ€™s and I think itโ€™s appropriate. Hope you all are having a good weekend! Happy Sunday!

Dreaming of winter weather kit today for #redwingwednesday featuring a new Filson shirt I picked up in Denver. Thanks to Eli over at @berkeleysupply for carrying a brand with American sizing so that an XL fits me well. Plus itโ€™s a beautiful flannel which I cannot wait to be able to wear on a regular basis. Hurry up cool weather! Hope you all are having a great week. If not, hang in there. Friday is just a few days away. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Sorry I havenโ€™t posted in a while. Work and life has been rather hectic and Iโ€™m still battling with my sprained ankle. That being said I felt a little #markalbertmonday would be the best thing for today. Love these customs Mark did for me. That gloxi-cut sole is so comfy. I Love pairing this reddish brown roughout leather with either black denim or double indigo. In this case my black denim from @cmbdenim fit the bill. Hope you all had a great weekend and the week goes by quickly and easily. Cheers!
