As you can tell by now I'm a big fan and a daily user of polo shirts. It's like part of my uniform. Here's a cool 1950's influenced Original Penguin polo shirt in a red and blue color combination. Available now @ OriginalPenguin.eu.
Pharrell's Ice Cream Brand is usually concentrated for a younger demographic but their polo shirts are made out of really good quality cotton and great color combinations too. I have a few in my closet. This is a cool alternative and a simple grey with the chocolate ice cream bar will be a sartorial crowd pleaser! Available soon @ BBCIceCream.com, Colette.fr and Barneys.com probably priced around $120-$150. I actually prefer Billionaire Boys Club aka BBC polo shirts with the cool astronaut helmet logo so keep a look out for them. Oh and their Soho store on West Broadway is the coolest ever. Seriously, check it out if you are in the New York City area.
These are the coolest Vans I've seen yet. Even LV has replicated Vans sneakers and noticed how classic this shoe brand is. Suede upper with the leather cap toe are the selling points of this shoe along with the classic navy and grey colorways. I love solid color sneakers uppers with white soles.

These were the only shoe that legendary pop-artist Andy Warhol wore and now the maker of these shoes (Salvatore Ferragamo) are making a limited run of these classic shoes with a little bit of paint splatter on the toe. Available only @ DoverStreetMarket.com.
Here are a few images from Louis Vuitton's Pre-Fall 2010 Men's collection that are really interesting pieces. First and foremost is the outfit in the first picture where the model is draped in LV from head to toe literally. I like every piece in that picture and it's put together really well so good job LV styling team. The most interesting piece is the wingtip Damier canvas boots pictured above. I'd have to see these in person to really critique them but from the picture it's definitely different.
J.Crew's Tribeca men's shop is another prime location to visit if you are in the New York City area. Beautiful setup and very classy garb for any man who appreciates classic American styling. It is located on 235 West Broadway New York, NY.
Everyone is posting about the opening of the Gant Rugger New York City store on 353 Bleecker st. but I compiled the most interesting pictures from the store to really give you a feel for it if you aren't able to visit anytime soon. It has a cool workshop vibe and the details on the clothing are very cool too especially that vintage model pic on the plaid madras shirt. Gant has also made a limited edition retro-styled Bicycle (limited to only 25) that is available at the store for $1000. For store hours and directions call (212)620-5949.

Romain Jerome has ash and rock from the historic Eyjafjallajokull volcano (WOW what a name!) on the watches dial. One of a kind and most likely is going to be super-expensive!
I really like the navy and red suede Louboutins from his new Spring/Summer 2010 collection. The black and grey ones are cool too.
