This weekend I figured I would sneak a quick round of golf in prior to Easter Dinner with the family. The Saturday before I realized I needed to purchase some new golf pants so I went to GolfSmith, Dicks, etc… I couldn’t find a semi-decent pair under $85, and that’s when I realized I need to goto Uniqlo.
While passing the Uniqlo by my apartment, Broadway and Broome, I remember seeing they had these pants advertised. They are called ‘Dry Function Pants’ which are made from a quick-dry material (100% Polyester) that keeps you feeling cool, and has a little bit of a stretch to it. This stretch fit is so comfortable, and makes me feel like there is no shot of ripping my pants when going to put my tee into the ground. The pants are also extremely lightweight/breathable, which ensured I did not sweat my balls off by the time the sun came out. Also, these look like regular dress pants – so I am definitely going to start wearing these around the office once summer comes.
The pants are $40, and are really awesome. I picked up three pairs, Grey (Wool Like), Black, and Navy. The pants come in their standard 34″ length, but with their free-tailoring (sometimes same day), you can’t go wrong with these pants.
Paycheck gets direct deposited, already spending it all on www.Patagonia.com. Lets face it, you do not work at a Hedge Fund unless you own at least one Patagonia Vest – so do yourself a favor and stock up on some of there items. I picked up two new ski jackets (Black/Green Dimensions Jacket & Green Super Cell), along with the below items. Now if only I had time to get over to Killington for the weekend…
What I ordered:
Prior to my first pair of Hugo Boss shoes, I would only buy Salvatore Ferragamo. I would pay between $400.00 – 625.00 for a pair of shoes that would last maybe 6 Months with everyday use. Also, these shoes were not made for New York Winters. I now only have two pair of Ferragamo’s, both of which I wear maybe once or twice a month – so they are in good shape.
Last year I purchased my first pair of Hugo Boss Metost Lace-Ups. They are awesome and look great, even better they cost around $225.00 per pair – and last more than double the average life of my more expensive pairs. I bought two pairs during Bloomingdales Friends and Family for around $330.00.
I pretty much wear these shoes almost everyday, with the exception of when I need a brown shoe – which I also picked up John Varvatos. The Hugo Boss shoes are comfortable, not heavy, and durable. Despite the occasional shoe shine when they guy comes to the office, or before big meeting, I really never take care of these shoes.
The shoe itself isn’t overdone like a lot of other brands. There is a toe cap, and some brogue work – that’s it. The picture below, makes he show look a little shiny, however it is more close to matte.
Last night my fiancé gave me one of the coolest gifts ever, the MEN’S VANS® FOR J.CREW SK8-HI REISSUE SNEAKERS. I have been wanting to pick these up from the JCrew Soho shop for a while – but they never had my size. They come in two colors, grey or navy, and for $70.00 a pair you could be as cool as me…
