|Hermes Crocodile T-Shirt (Spring/Summer 2013) that retails for $91,500|
Hermes has been in the center of attention lately for its upmost ridiculous t-shirt retail price. This crocodile t-shirt above retails for $91,500. No, I did not make a typo. If you were to buy this t-shirt (I wonder who would), you would be paying around $8,000 simply in taxes. Seriously? This could pay for a good college education, a car, or a moderate home. In the South I could purchase a good luxurious home.
Whoever were to buy this item I'd believe it would be only for the sole purpose of showing off how much money they have. You know I'm a freak when it comes to designer clothes, but this t-shirt in particular I don't know. I recently came across a Burberry crocodile trenchcoat that retailed around this particular Hermes price tag. I know Hermes is well known for its luxurious couture craftsmanships, such as its Birkin Bags which begin at a retail price of $10,000 and above, but sometimes luxury can exceed its standard limits.
In general, if I even had thousands of dollars, I would never agree upon purchasing this t-shirt. There are so many more things one would be able to do with this amount. I love Hermes though. Who wouldn't?
Would you buy this t-shirt if you had all the money in the world?

|Balmain Slim Biker Jacket (here)|
Spring may be here, but you have to agree that it still feels like a wintery month even though trees are beginning to bloom again. Their is always one particular outerwear item that will never fail to make the greatest impression of your outfit no matter what season you're in. That would be the famous biker jacket.
This jacket never disappoints me when it's chilly during the spring or summer time (it can get kind of cold where I'm living). I don't know what it is, but there is always something special about these jackets. I guess it may have to be with their design perspective - young, versatile, and masculine.
As I always say, you don't have to spend thousands of dollars for one particular jacket. You know what you pay for is what you get for. This may be one particular item it may be worth investing in besides a great pair of shoes. After all, you have to agree a biker jacket will always be one of your best friends no matter what season or formality.
What brand biker jacket are you fond of?

It has been no secret how big of a fan I’ve been for Raf Simons. His position as new creative director for Christian Dior brought him more prestige than what he already was when at Jil Sander. Menswear has been no difference for this designer. Everything he designs is meant to be a trend setter for the men seeking to look “fashionable.” It is only for him where I can state his collections are truly on the fashion spot for men. They never fall in the side where something can look sort of bizarre for a man. You know what I mean.
For spring, well renowned menswear brand, Fred Perry took the time to include a collaboration collection with Raf Simons. If you have not seen the collection then you must go see it. I guarantee there will be something for you to get your hands on. This is what I love about Simons. I don’t know how he does it, but he always manages to make a colorful patterned sweater or a cheetah print shirt appear so masculine. The three looks above are just some of the clothes I truly like. I honestly want to get the third look from the right (blue-green knitted jacquard shirt). It’s a must have for spring.
Do you like this collection of Raf Simons x Fred Perry?

|Prada Wing-Tip and Kiltie Shoe Styles. What else do you want with these shoes?|
For men, purchasing a great pair of shoes is equally as important as choosing the perfect suit (more about it soon). I always say, if you're not so much into suits, then you better be into shoes if you want to look stylish. There are people who will practically look at me like I'm a crazy bitch for purchasing such expensive shoes. The truth is, what you pay for it is what you get for it.
When buying shoes, don't purchase them at first sight. Think about it. What can I style these shoes with? Will they look good with shorts, pants, a t-shirt? Especially when you're about to make a very huge purchase, such as these Prada shoes, which retail around $1,000.
I know, the price may be superbly high for the majority of us. But wait, don't forget the semi-annual sales that occur every once in a while. This is the time to attack and get your hands on one of these beauties. There are so many sites that offer great styles of shoes to wear - Aldo, Zara, Cole Haan - at reasonable prices.
When I buy shoes, there is one key thought I always bring to mind - If it looks great with a t-shirt, then it must look perfect with anything else. For example, the two Prada shoes above, all you need is a pair of jeans, white t-shirt, and a biker jacket. That's all it requires to be the most stylish guy in town; simple and no stress. Next time take a look at some of the street style outfits photographers shoot. What makes those guys stand out in a t-shirt? Simple, the shoes.
Oh, and by the way, Wing-Tips and Kilties are major this season in menswear. A little touch of color in the soles can add a little magic to your outfit. Casual or formal, you decide.

Wearing black can sometimes appear boring. I always say add a little pop of color and texture and your set to be the star of the night. It is always necessary to have fun when dealing with a little black dress. After all, this is what actually makes your black number stand out in front of the others. Don't stress about the dress you should choose - all attention should be focused on gathering the perfect accessories.
Shoes could be another key factor you should think about. I don't know about you, but those red python Alexander Wang sandals are sure ultra sexy. There was something that caught my attention when I saw them online. A chic black dress came to my mind immediately. These shoes are the center of attraction with texture happening everywhere - python and lizard injected with the most rich color. These are the type of shoes you could pair with a jersey dress (above), leather pants, skirts, etc. There are so many options to be creative with them - retro, sexy, sophisticated. The only questions is if you would be willing to pay $625 for these beauties? Would you?
