Spring into Style

MDA Soiree 2014


MDA Spring Soiree 2014

Last Saturday April 11, 2014 marked the beginning of Spring with the 15th Annual MDA Spring Soiree. Each year, this event marks the night that everyone wears the newest styles and fashions for the coming Spring and Summer Months.  This year the invitation said Black Tie or Sparkle.  Here’s a few pictures on how the crowd interpreted this theme.  Along with the Fashion and Style pix are some beautiful shots of Waikiki to help you enjoy the atmosphere of this year’s party. For Additional pictures of this years Soiree, check out Honolulu Pulse.


Stay Cool and look Great in these Spring Time Suits

Guys if you’re looking to stay cool and look hot this Spring. Check out  some of the following Spring suits  from Bonobos for some nice options. The Cool Cottons and stylish seersucker suits are guaranteed to help you stay nice and comfy, yet still very stylish for the warmer weather Soirees, Yard parties, Roof partying or just kickin’ it on a Saturday night.

Let’s check out some of the newer very on trend Cotton suits.

I’m digging these seersucker suits, especially the navy blue.

Or you can be traditional and stick to the wool suits updated in the newer slimmer cuts. They carry various Wools from 110’s to 130’s. See more here.


Or you can cut it up with the Is this trending this year or last year’s double-breasted suit. I think It doesn’t really matter, If you look good in something wear it. And these DB’s are slimmer and sleeker than the suits from 10 years ago. I remember huge shoulder pads and fairly baggy fits on the older double-breasted suits. These are slimming and cut for the Modern Dude.  Oh and make sure you keep them buttoned when standing, then you can unbutton them while sitting. Although I do like watching David Letterman at night especially because he’s from NY, it drives me crazy when he doesn’t button up his DB’s. I sometimes catch my self screaming at the TV for him to button up, but of course I know he can’t hear me. Maybe, he’ll read streetzblog and start buttoning up his Double-Breasted suits.

Check out this nice Dark Navy wool DB suit. the fit is quite nicely tailored, which produces a great silhouette for many a body shape.

If you look good in DB's, wear them. This is cut so sleek it almost looks like a single breasted suit from this photo angle

If you get invited to a Black Tie Gala Bonobos even has some tux’s for you. These are also cut close to the body and look crisp, clean and ready to Rock at your next party.

Black Tie means Black tie. This is what you should be wearing. You can always turn it up a bit with a fancy pocket square.

I hope some of these options help you out when you’re getting ready for your next Spring or Summer Event. See you on the streetz or maybe at a Spring or Summer party. I wouldn’t mind being invited to a Roof Top Gig, I’ve never been to one of those before. I’m personally thinking about getting the Seersucker suit or the navy Double-Breasted. What is your favorite look?

Trad Ivy meets Big Time Street

Brooks Brothers hooks up with Supreme NYC


Street and Skate Store Supreme has teamed up with traditional Ivy League Brooks Brothers for a Bold and pretty darn stylish Seersucker release featuring the jacket seen above and matching pants. As you can see the Jacket has the Red and White Supreme tag along side the classic Dark Navy and white Brooks Brothers Tag on the sleeve.  I suspect these are two tags that will stay on most buyers sleeve as they rock this look for Spring 2014.

The picture above appeared on the Supreme London Store Manager’s Instagram @mrjagger_  After researching it a bit on the net, it seems it’s a picture taken from an article in an upcoming issue of the UK’s Man About Town Magazine. The release date of the Jacket and pants still seems to be a mystery. Update: Monday April 28, 2014.  The Seersucker suit will be available in store NY, LA, London and on-line Thursday May 1, 2014. Available in Japan on Saturday May 3, 2014.  Price $549.  While doing this blog posting I noticed that most Supreme drops are on Thursdays. More pix of the  suit here.

The April 10 newspaper edition of WWD confirms that this jacket along with a pair of trousers will be released soon by the two Mega Brands.  According to WWD the lining will have a black and white star pattern and the suits silhouette is Brooks Brothers’ slimmer and younger Fitzgerald model.  The two piece seersucker suit will be available at Supreme.  From what I’ve seen during my December trips to NYC, Supreme has some pretty long lines for their limited edition Shirts and Kicks. I would suspect a BIG line for this gear. And I kinda’ doubt it will show up on their on-line boutique. But it’s for sure worth a try to look and find out. I wonder if like the shirts and kicks;  if this suit goes for double or triple on E-Bay? My vote would be yes.  And Yeah, I admit it would also keep the tags on it and wear it out of the house just like the picture above.

Brooks Brothers has done some things with Junya Watanabe in the past and they typically work with designer Thom Browne with their Black Fleece label.

Supreme has collab’d with many including Nike, North Face Comme des Garcons, Vans,  Champion and in 2011 they worked with Adam Kimmel on an unlined black and navy two button suit jacket and pants made from Italian cotton Twill.  I think that this Seersucker collab is a Big Time Winner for both the younger and older fans of both brands especially the Supreme followers.  I could see this jacket worn by many a bike courier and fashion designer in NYC and by many others in various professions throughout the world.  Streetzblog recommend that you should get this very stylish suit collab if you can!
