This is a serious vehicle. I actually never saw a car of this caliber tuned like this. It must be a fortune though because without all the extras this car goes for $250K. Although you can find one used for around $80K if you have it.

It's time for spring so time to put on the Gingham shirts so here's a few from Ralph Lauren. Here's a few color options too. I wear black gingham in the winter because its my favorite print. Gingham really reminds me of spring my favorite season. Pick them up at RalphLauren.com $125 for all except the aqua one which is $90.
The new Monaco V4 by Tag Heuer is probably my favorite watch right now but as of right now it is limited to only 20 of them being made so you guessed it very exclusive and extremely expensive so enjoy the pictures. I really like the aqua details they really stick out. In the top picture they are showing one of their first timepieces as compared to now THE FUTURE!
I really liked/like this movie. It is very entertaining so do yourself a favor and rent it. In a fitting follow-up to Rushmore, writer-director Wes Anderson and cowriter-actor Owen Wilson have crafted another comedic masterwork that ripples with inventive, richly emotional substance. Because of the all-star cast, hilarious dialogue, and oddball characters existing in their own, wholly original universe, it's easy to miss the depth and complexity of Anderson's brand of comedy. Here, it revolves around Royal Tenenbaum (Gene Hackman), the errant patriarch of a dysfunctional family of geniuses, including precocious playwright Margot (Gwyneth Paltrow), boyish financier and grieving widower Chas (Ben Stiller), and has-been tennis pro Richie (Luke Wilson). All were raised with supportive detachment by mother Etheline (Anjelica Huston), and all ache profoundly for a togetherness they never really had. The Tenenbaums reconcile somehow, but only after Anderson and Wilson (who costars as a loopy literary celebrity) put them through a compassionate series of quirky confrontations and rekindled affections. Not for every taste, but this is brilliant work from any perspective. --Jeff Shannon Order it at Amazon.com

Fashion weeks gets underway here in New York today but, even before one model could place a stiletto on a crisp white catwalk, the mood was bittersweet. That's because this week will be the final time the collections will be unveiled in the Bryant Park Tents. Bryant Park management had long been locking horns with fashion week producers, complaining that American fashion's biggest spectacle was growing too large and restricted public access to the park. In September, the shows will move to Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park, a venue that can better accommodate the twice-annual event. The shows have been held at Bryant Park since 1993 catapulting more than a few designers' and models' careers and fostering many more memories. Several fashion insiders took the time to reflect recently and the Tents will be adorned with their quotes. Here, a preview: "I began modeling in 1965 when there were only shows in Paris. When Bryant Park started, fashion became a world event. It was exhilarating." -Lauren Hutton "Bryant Park became the beacon of what New York fashion stands for-an industry that's fearless, tireless, and always moving forward." -Anna Wintour, Vogue "Bryant Park became the heartbeat of fashion twice a year... we will miss it!" -Diane von Furstenberg "Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is when all of New York comes together to shine a light on its family of designers. We share a runway, a calendar, an audience-and of course, the spotlight. As a result, it has given us a world presence. There's no better way to support our industry than when we stand together as one." -Donna Karan "I'll always have fond memories of the Tents in Bryant Park, it was one of the earlier highlights of my career." -Gisele Bündchen "I propose that a plaque be mounted in the park as a legacy: 'The Bryant Park Tents 1993-2010 branded New York as the indisputable Fashion Capital of the World.'" -Tim Gunn
Tragic news have reached us today, that British fashion designer Alexander McQueen has committed suicide today. Just this morning we featured his upcoming collection with Puma and especially in recent years he has had a tremendous impact on the fashion industry. RIP!
Statement from the Family of Lee McQueen
“On behalf of Lee McQueen’s family, Alexander McQueen today announces the tragic news that Lee McQueen, the founder and designer of the Alexander McQueen brand has been found dead at his home. At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with Lee’s family.
Lee’s family has asked for privacy in order to come to terms with this terrible news and we hope the media will respect this.”

Here are three nice looks at the Mens Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 Collection runway show. My favorite is the blazers in the second and last pictures. They look like tweed sportscoats with plaid shoulders. Very well put together!
Two cool polo shirts from Ralph Lauren. The green one looks like an official Polo sporting polo shirt with the slash across it and the number 3 on the sleeve. The other is a tie-dyed polo with a nice blue gradation look to it. Both priced at $98 at RalphLauren.com.

Here's the new lookbook from the very popular Band of Outsiders Spring/Summer 2010 line. As you can see they went with a very vintage looking polaroid shoot which in an artistic aspect looks cool but as far as actually seeing the detail in the clothing good luck. Oh and I didn't post all the looks just the one's that I liked (like always).
The new Clae Spring/Summer 2010 releases come in a few different style but I just posted the coolest ones. Clae is my favorite shoemaker because of the shoe quality and the subtle detail. Clae's are made like $300 shoes but are retailed at a price point ranging from $90-$140! I love the sneaker shoe combination and they choose nice colorways that are very appealing to the eye. Please support this great shoemaker. Available at Zappos.com!
