Music meets Street Style ft. LEUCKY

We took a day out with upcoming music artist LEUCKY, to catch up on his style side and how he expresses his day to day life in music through fashion.

In his words;

I usually wear designer brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton and alike, when Im doing something serious that day … but on a normal day to day, find me wearing a casual t shirt, a pair of jeans and some sneakers (mostly sport shoes) , Haha.

Music artists have always been known to have a unique type of dress code attached to them and we are currently obsessed with Leucky’s combination in this months ‘Style Edition’.

Here are some of the photos we captured!

The Six (6) Habits of an Aspiring Gentleman.

If you are reading this, theres a high chance you are over 20 and are looking forward to making yourself a better man – in both character and looks.

Some of you may have clues and there are always others that need a little boost. What we mean? we identified Six (6) things that every aspiring gentleman must adopt in order to make himself (or at least push himself towards) that well respected and admired man he dreams to be.

So without further ado;

1). Visit Your Barber Often.

Have you every finished dressing in these clean clothes then looked in the mirror and thought “damn! If only my hair was sharp”. Guys, gone are the days when you need to turn into a Caveman in order to visit your barber. Welcome to Adulthood where spending often is an attachment. On that note, pass through your barber’s shop immediately you start noticing your hairline fading, or your, well, Fade, fading. Lol. (No seriously).

2). Own At Least Two Bottles Of Cologne.

Hate to break the news but, being a Gentleman is an Investment. You will NEED a Signature scent if you want to become one. Yeah, original fragrances can be quite pricy for your age but you must have learnt how to save (especially for Important things) by now.

Have at least Two of your favorite (identity them) fragrances on your dressing table and don’t forget to freshen yourself up before you use them. You will be amazed at how many compliments and attraction you will get just one week into starting this habit.

3). Own At Least Three Suits.

Pitti Uomo

Nothing speaks “Simple Yet Sophisticated” louder than a ‘Clean Cut Suit’, and it is no lie that most gentlemen have a couple of suits hanging in their closets.

Now about this, we would advise you to do away with cheap fabric. Rather, you can have one of your trusted Designers to measure you up and tailor one for you from scratch, or empty your wallet man, pay for that really good (well fitting) suit you spotted in one of your favorite retail stores. Trust us, it will be worth it.

4). Dry Cleaners Are There For A Reason

So now that you own these suits (and blazers you may have added on top), you will need to have them cleaned up after two days (advisable) of wearing them.

Unless you really mastered the art of cleaning up these pieces by yourself at home, we advise you have yourself one trusted Dry Cleaning Company that you will take your suits and blazers to each time they need cleaning up. That way, you will have them professionally done, and save you time as well.

5). Brush Your Teeth and Tougue.

Yep, you read that right. Your mouth will have to be freshly scented now that you are a gentleman. High chances are you will be looked up to by few guys of younger age and also admired by girls in your circle, so you NEVER want to destroy your whole house made of cards with a bad breathe – COME ON BRO!

(Tip: Develop a Habit of buying fresh, mint chewing gum and having it with you on the go. You will thank us later)

6). Own A Pricy Pair Of Shades.

A cool and quite pricy pair of shades will have you feeling highly of yourself even when you are simply headed to buy a few groceries (just an example).

Being a gentleman is always about adding a little sophistication to the basic things you do. That being said, you ought to save up and buy that signature pair of shades that will add a huge boost to your outfit at a Social Event or even an outing with the boys.

_____________

So guys those are the 6 Habits we think you should work on if you want to be that clean and looked up to person. You will be surprised at how addicted you will get in a short time, and how out of place you will start to feel when abandon any one of these few habits we have listed.

FOUR BOOTS TO KEEP YOU WARM AND STYLISH THIS WINTER.

So for those of us in the Southern Hemisphere, “Winter is Here”, and obviously your gear should be ready or else you’re in for it (lol)

We compiled Four of our Favorite boots that we think should be in your budget this winter to keep you warm yet stylish.

1). The Brogue Boots.

Now, enough with the typical black or brown color when selecting shoes, especially when you are picking these masculine and stylish boots – the Brogue Boots. A Pair in Burgundy, styled with a nice pair of slim fit jeans and various sweat shirts or jackets to pull this off.

2). The Suede Chelsea Boots.

” Iv always been a Fan of Suede chelsea boots. They are the first chelsea boots I fell in love with. I always saw them on Kanye West and I always went, Yo those are dope shoes, the probably cost a buck. But eventually I found quality yet affordable sources lol ” (Niva – Chief Editor House of DRUBERG).

Well, you can definitely tell by looking. Perfect Alignment, Comfortable and Warm. They are definitely must haves.

[Bottega Veneta]

3). The Chelsea Dress Boats.

Now of course some of us may be working and theres nothing more annoying than waking up to a cold morning. Worry not. Destroy your Monday to Friday switch ups with a additional good pair of Chelsea Dress Boots. A dark brown pair or black will go perfectly fine with your trench coats, just like candy and children (yeah we got jokes too).

4). The Chukka Boots.

I remember watching a Travel Vlog by “Jacks Gap” on YouTube, and one of the two owners of the channel (they are both American btw) had to go visit his girlfriend in Australia. Long story short he had a pair of dark brown Chukka boots, a Pair of dark blue jeans, and a Plaited Shirt, and the outfit just sunk deep inside me – till now I want to recreate that outfit. Chukka boots talk “clean, masculine, stylish and rare to me”. (Niva – Chief Editor House of DRUBERG).

Here are the Monday to Friday Wrist Watches to consider.

Now as a lot of you know, an outfit just feels EMPTY without a watch, I mean, dahh .. and if you want to call yourself a dandy man, you should have a fine taste in wrist watches (apart from your cologne collection, which we will look at later). So if you are having a little struggle with your go-to wrist watch brands you might want to consider these 5 wrist watches any dandy man would wear from Monday to Friday. Lets get into it:

1). FOSSIL

I think this is one of the most underrated mens watches in town. But if you consider yourself a clean guy, a nice leather strap in blue, finished with a gold bezel and a chronograph, Fossil definitely delivers just what you need for almost any occasion.

2). CARTIER

If you call yourself a wrist watch enthusiast then you should know that Cartier has produced some of the best go-to wrist watches for many formal (and informal) events. This is definitely one of the way back Swiss watches that are popularly known for classy men only. So on that part of the week that you are throwing a blazer on, finish the look with a Cartier wrist watch and turn heads.

3). VACHERON CONSTANTIN

This is one of the not so popular wrist watches, that should only mean its not for the average of course. Most dandy men on Instagram (like @erikforsgren) has been spotted wearing a Vacheron Constantin and we Immediately loved the outcome. So if we are talking of a Business Meeting and you may need something to draw people’s attention from you as you think of other points, wear this and hold your chin often. (No seriously).

4). ROLEX – Day Date

People usually tend to abandon brands just because they have become popularly known amongst people, but thats a mistake. Rolex has forever been one of the trade mark wrist watches across different income ranges, but we are not talking about just any Rolex, an ORIGINAL Day Date is a perfect match for a nice day of Golf while discussing Business with your colleagues. So behave yourself and get yourself one.

5). SEVEN FRIDAY

Another not so popular wrist watch is the Seven Friday and this is definitely not your average mechanical watch. Most suit lovers who are confident in themselves have been spotted wearing a Seven Friday wrist watch and immediately stood them out. So whether you are going out shopping with the Family, or attending a Business meeting, or a simple Brunch with your friends, wearing a Seven Friday wrist watch will definitely bring out your Dandy Identity.
