A quick tip if you’re planning on rolling your jeans or khakis over your sneakers this summer — you want to roll them lower than your instincts might first tell you to do.
If the front of your jeans are just touching or just a tiny bit above the tongue of your shoe, that’s the moneyspot. Any lower than that you don’t want; and any higher than that and you’re going to be showing off way too much ankle and ain’t nobody got time for that.

Jordan Brand is set to drop some serious heat next spring 2016. The “Poster” pack, will consists of the Air Jordan 2 and 12. The 2’s is a tribute to the brand’s 1986 campaign with the slogan on the heel, while the 12’s allude to the “The Master” poster. Both pairs are showcased in a black, white and grey colourway, along with all the Jordan brand accents that we all appreciate.
The little details on this Swedish brand’s sneakers are tuned to perfection
Pronounced ‘fight’, this Aussie brand produces handmade sneakers that are ethically conscious.
Bringing an edge to traditional minimal, monochrome sneakers, the brand mixes advanced materials like neoprene with classic Nappa leather.
A little more affordable than most premium trainer brands
Stylish, handmade designs that look like they’re worth at least twice the price.
Created by British designer Alexander Taylor for the 2015 UN talk titled “Oceans. Climate. Life”, the conceptual prototype cleverly incorporates ocean waste in place of traditional materials. Rather than yarn, the fibres used were made from waste plastic and fishing nets. Subtle green stitching countours the trainer’s upper white surface atop Adidas’ signature boost sole. The nets used were retrieved during a 110-day expedition by Sea Sheperd to track an illegal poaching vessel off the coast of Africa. “Adidas has long been a leader in sustainability, but this partnership allows us to tap into new areas and create innovative materials and products for our athletes,” says board member Eric Liedtke; through their continued partnership with the UN’s Parley for the Ocean the brand hopes to launch an entire collection made from reclaimed waste. Whilst this is just a concept shoe, designer Alexander tells us to look out for the official launch of eco-friendly products coming spring 2016.

FOR SHORT HAIR
For short hair, styling is more about texture than shape. Using a high-hold paste has the strength to provide both height and separation, with just enough shine to keep the pieces from blending together. Apply it to slightly damp hair, tousle it from the roots, and rework individual tufts until you're satisfied with the look.
FOR LONG HAIR
Once your hair is a certain length, styling takes on a new meaning: It's less about disorder, and more about avoiding that polished, overly-combed appearance. This styling cream has just enough hold to achieve your desired shape, be it a side sweep or an undercut, without making it look like you intentionally styled your hair.
Lets play a game. Its like simon says but with Johannes Huebl; what the man says fashion wise, you do. So who is he?
Model/shoe designer/photographer/style icon and nice guy; he is debatably best known as the husband of reality TV star Olivia Palermo. Together, the couple are known for their impeccable styling, each others best accessory, the epitome of couple dressing. As for his own fashion credibility, Huebl has modeled for clients like Hugo Boss, Ungaro, Ralph Lauren, Banana Republic, Dunhill, Donna Karen, MontBlanc, Nivea, Hogan’s, Schwarzkopf and various others (so, yes, I'd say he's a pretty successful model) and studied business economics at the University of Hamburg going on to study cultural science with the emphasis in film and photography, cultural history and philosophy at the University of Lueneburg.
When it comes to his own style, Huebl has revealed that the key to his flawless appearance is having his clothes impeccably tailored - including his swimsuits! Recently Huebl caught up with GQ Australia and shared his top 5 style tips:
1. Chinos “They’re the most accessible pants – you always feel well-dressed wearing them. and don’t be afraid to roll them up.”
2. Tailored Tees “There are some nice T-shirts that don’t look extra wide, and have nice trimming – James Perse is doing good things.”
3. Hats On “A summer hat is cool – lots of my friends are getting into Panamas and borsalinos. I haven’t quite dared, but may soon give it a go.”
4. Classic Shades “I’m a big fan of retro sunglasses. I don’t like the mirrored screen anymore – when you see a table of housewives in the French Alps all wearing them, you know the trend is over. I’m about the classic ’50s, ’60s looks that are simple and easy.”
5. Find Inspiration “We all get it from somewhere. I go on Instagram, street-style blogs, I take screen shots, I see how stylists do things and speak to them on shoots. But I am mostly inspired by Italian fashion and what you see on the streets there.”
Inspired by the 1920s and 1930s when hairstyles were simple, understated, classy and fashionable - think Great Gatsby style. The ‘Undercut’ or ‘Slicked back’ is probably the most sophisticated of this era where men would ask for the traditional "short back and sides" but keep length on the top. The key thing for this hairstyle is for the sides not to be blended with the top layers, the name ‘undercut’ indicates there needs to be definition between the two. The Slick Back is ideal as it keeps your hair off your face and requires very little styling. All you need is a wet look product with a strong hold and you're set! To get this look, ask your barber for a tight fade on the back and sides to create a strong contrast. You want the top layers to be longer so that you can ‘slick them back’ with product.
To style, look for volumizing products with a strong hold. American Crew Superglue is an excellent choice and will lock in your style. TiGi Hard Head is another great product that will lift your style. Simply run the product from the front to the back and sculpt the bangs into place.

Calling all converse lovers, its time to meet the new Jack Purcell converse range!
For those of you not familiar with the history of these shoes, Purcell designed a canvas and rubber badminton sneaker for the B.F. Goodrich Company of Canada in 1935. He designed the shoe to provide more protection and support on badminton courts. In the 1970s, Converse purchased the trademark rights to Jack Purcell sneakers - which it still produces and sells today. The shoe, which is similar in appearance to Converse's Chuck Taylor All-Stars, can be distinguished by the signature "smile" across the toe.
My personal favourite from the collection is the Jack Purcell Brushed Cotton Mid in black -As featured below! Its the perfect winer sneaker!
