Kit Culture: Casual Wear for Active Guys

June 5, 2017

After my Fyre Festival trip fiasco I’ve been keeping myself busy getting everything ready for my next destination: Cuba. I still have a little more outfit planning to do, but before I tell you everything about my adventures in the Caribbean today I want to tell you about Kit Culture, a lifestyle menswear brand that focuses on creating casual wear pieces for those guys who favor a more active lifestyle.

Now, you might be wondering what I mean by “active casual wear”; since it’s all about the athleisure rave these days, Kit Culture is trying to give their own spin to the trend by making clothes that feel comfortable enough to perform physical activities while looking polished at the same time. In these photos I’m wearing their Influencer Stretch Twill Pants and Seven-Day Long Sleeve T-Shirt. For the pants, which were my favorite piece from them, their approach differs in that they were not trying to make a pair of track pants that look decent enough to wear to the office, but instead I would describe them as a pair of chinos that is stretchy and comfortable enough to go around your whole day and switch from work to commute to a social gathering while still looking put together. Their products have a slim and modern fit that hit the perfect balance between casualness and freedom of movement.

If you’re willing to give Kit Culture a try I’d recommend going for a pair of their Stretch Pants to check what their whole vibe is about. As for me, I’m lucky enough to being able to wear whatever I want to the office, but I’m specially excited to give Kit Culture’s apparel a go in my upcoming trips; as most of you might too, I prefer to travel with comfy clothes that will give a little more freedom during flights, so you can be sure that I’ll be rocking these pants during my next visit to the airport. I’ll be my usual comfy self but will look a little more grown up, which is really never a bad thing, right?

Until next time,

Después del fiasco que resultó ser mi viaje al supuesto Fyre Festival he estado ocupado preparando todo para mi próximo destino: Cuba. Todavía tengo algo de planeación que hacer, pero antes de que venga a platicarles todas mis aventuras en la isla hoy quiero hablar sobre Kit Culture, una marca de ropa que busca crear piezas casuales para aquellos que llevan un estilo de vida más activo.

 

Probablemente se pregunten que significa eso de “ropa casual activa”; el trend del athleisure es todo el hit ahorita, y Kit Culture está intentado darle su propio toque haciendo ropa que se sienta lo suficientemente cómoda para realizar actividades físicas pero al mismo tiempo haciendo que se vea un poco más formal. En las fotos del post estoy usando los pantalones Influencer Stretch Twill Pants y una playera Seven-Day Long Sleeve T-Shirt. El pantalón fue la pieza que más me gustó, y más que intentar hacer una pantalonera lo suficientemente decente para llevar a la oficina, el approach de Kit Culture fue hacer unos pantalones semi formales pero con la flexibilidad y comodidad para que los traigas puestos todo el día y en diferentes situaciones, desde el trabajo, durante tu commute e incluso en algún evento social como una cena con amigos o salida a un bar. Todos los productos del sitio web de Kit Culture tienen un corte moderno y ajustado, que busca tener el balance perfecto entre formalidad y libertad de movimiento.

Si están pensando darle una oportunidad a la marca mi recomendación es irse por los pantalones para que vean de qué va toda la personalidad de Kit Culture. En mi caso tengo la fortuna de poder ponerme lo que me dé la gana para ir a trabajar, pero estaré probando mi ropa en mis próximos viajes; como seguramente también lo hacen muchos de ustedes, prefiero utiliza ropa cómoda cuando vuelo, y este pantalón parece tener todo para viajar con libertad y al mismo tiempo dar la finta de que también uso ropa de adulto responsable, lo cual no suena nada mal, ¿verdad?

Hasta la próxima,

Back to Basics: Minimalist Wardrobe

March 17, 2017
back to basics

A combination of growing tired of opening my closet and finding nothing to wear, wearing a variation of the same thing most days, and reading this article finally convinced me to do a closet clean-up for the third time; the only thing that was different this time is that I got rid of almost everything I owned.

Having an empty closet feels really scary, but I’m determined to make the best out of it and take this as an opportunity to rebuild my wardrobe by taking a more minimal and functional approach. I wish I could say I have unlimited funds to do so but unfortunately I don’t. Hopefully though, this will mean that I will consider every addition to my new closet more carefully and I will end up with something far superior than what I had.

If you’re also in the mood of some spring cleaning or simply have been toying with the idea of starting from scratch and building a more minimalist wardrobe, here’s a list of essentials I put together:

  1. Navy suit
  2. Selvedge denim jeans
  3. Black jeans
  4. Khaki chinos
  5. Wool trousers
  6. Basic sweaters in black, grey, navy, camel
  7. Black bomber jacket
  8. Denim jacket
  9. Basic Tees in navy, white, grey and black
  10. White dress shirt
  11. Oxford shirts in white and blue
  12. White sneakers
  13. Brown brogues / desert boots
  14. Black chelsea boots

Until next time,

-SGS


Después de leer este artículo y aparte estar harto de abrir el clóset y no ver nada qué ponerme (últimamente me visto con una variación del mismo look todos los días) decidí hacer una limpia de ropa después de la cual básicamente me quedé sin nada.

Sacar tanta ropa y quedarme con una mínima parte de mi clóset original se sintió bastante estresante, pero quiero tomarlo como una oportunidad para construir un guardarropa (casi) desde cero y fijarme un poco más en lo que voy incluyendo. No sé ustedes pero yo a veces siento que muchas veces compramos sólo por comprar y ni siquiera nos fijamos si lo nuevo funciona con lo que ya tenemos. Mi nuevo approach está enfocado en lo minimalista y funcional, y aunque no tengo un presupuesto ilimitado espero que esto me obligue a hacer compras más inteligentes.

Si alguien también quiere tomar el reto de hacer una limpia a consciencia y empezar (casi) desde cero, le comparto la lista que tengo de cosas que considero como essentials:

  1. Traje azul marino
  2. Jeans oscuros
  3. Jeans negros
  4. Chinos color khaki
  5. Pantalón de vestir gris
  6. Suéters básicos en negro, gris, azul marino y café
  7. Bomber jacket negra
  8. Chamarra de mezclilla
  9. Playeras básicas en negro, blanco, gris y azul marino
  10. Camisa de vestir blanca
  11. Camisas oxford en blanco y azul
  12. Tennis blancos
  13. Zapatos o desert boots cafés
  14. Chelsea boots negras

Hasta la próxima,

RAIN BOOTS FOR MEN: A GUIDE

April 25, 2015

Photo credit: christiandareedited.com

One thing that’s true about rain boots for men is that it’s quite a controversial topic. While they seem to be a natural fit for women (whom as I understand love to wear their Hunter boots whenever they can), they somehow struggle to be accepted by men. Here’s my two cents on the subject.
