You know it’s got to be something pretty serious to get me excited about L.A. Fashion Week, better yet to even attend a show. Yes it’s the jaded New Yorker in me speaking, but the Exchange LA was the place to be. When Anthony Franco presents a runway collection it’s a stand up occasion for those with any fashion sense in L.A. to attend. You’d be hard pressed to mention fashion in L.A. and not mention the name Anthony Franco.

Leffot Fold Wallet

It’s nothing more annoying than a bulky ass wallet filled with a bunch of things you could do without if you really thought about it. Hence the Leffot Fold Wallet is here for those that only need to carry bills (every now & then) when making moves. The t-shaped fold wallet is constructed in what the company calls, “horse ass leather”. It simply hugs your cash with three simple folds. The wallet comes in a small version for U.S. Dollars or in a larger version for more valuable currencies like the Euro, British Pound, or Japanese Yen.

Scott Campbell has done it again creating a stand out fash-On moment. This time he creates two sick leather jackets with Surface To Air. American contemporary and tattoo artist Scott Campbell uses etched drawings on the backs of each jacket using the famous ‘loop stitch’ technique.

The jacket ‘Dead Fucks,’ portrays funeral inspired drawings using classic Scott Campbell symbolism. The ‘Cobra Jacket’ shows an extremely intricate drawing of cobra heads intertwined and covering the entire back. If you recall I’ve featured works of Scott Campbell on here before.

Most of you already know I.AM.CJay is a fiend when it comes to wrist-wear. So when I got the email this morning two of my favorite brands were coming together for an exclusive timepiece, my day was made. LaVie Clothing Co. and FLUD Watches created this one of a kind watch for those that drive in their own lane.

The make and color is so right for Fall/Winter and gives subtle moments of conversation piece without even trying. The option to change the band is always a key factor for making fresh Fash-ON moves. Don’t want to play one look out too tough. I’m just saying.

October 15th is the date when the piece drops and only 100 were created. The watch will be sold exclusively at Capo, Probus, Area4Zero1 in Rhode Island, and online.

Big ups to the homie aka brand wizard Pete O. for the info.

One good boot is essential for Fall/Winter and I’m not talking a Timberland boot. I’m talking a boot that can translate from kick back to nightlife, depending on where you flow. The Declaration Boots from Bed|Stü are a perfect mix of rugged worn and fash-ON savy. Boots like these are made to last a long time and the scuffed up finish in the craftsmanship is a nod to that.

Check out the site for more from the brand.

If you know me, than you know I’m a sucker for a standout timepiece. Take the O Clock collection which is vibrant and loud in the best way possible. The water resistant watches come in 15 different colors to choose from.

This first collection launched last month in the US and retails for a fashion friendly price of $36 a piece.

L.A. based brand Ever has recently collaborated with bag maker Jack Spade for a set of travel bags. Now if your a dude that understands there is a fash-ON moment in every move you make, then these rugged bags are for you.  There is a duffle/tote 2 piece that’s in this collection. The military like colors are constructed in canvas and make for easy function which is essential in travel.  Thinking I may invest in these for my NYC holiday trip…WEY!

The duffle is $395 and the tote is $275

Nooka has released to new pairs of shades to their collection, the Venus and Mercury. Both are not to be worn everywhere, but when you do rock them it’s a guaranteed fash-ON moment.

See now this is what I call innovative thinking. Jewelery designer Scott Kay has created an option outside of the gold, silver, and platinum that people usually go with for wedding bands. Instead he created BioBlu™27, an alloy of 65 percent cobalt, 29 percent chromium, and six percent molybdenum from the metallurgists at Carpenter Technology. The metal is constructed of superior metal and it’s bright-white, mirror like shine is resistant to corrosion. The bands seven collections for men that are meant to symbolize the traits most desirable in a groom-to-be like commitment, devotion and strength of character. Most rings sell for $250-$300 each.
