Every now and then we come across those leading men that inspire us to dress a little nicer, maybe try some “looks” we wouldn’t normally get within 100 feet of. Whether it’s lack of an imagination or no stones, these personalities push us to think “you know, maybe I could pull that off”. For us, Channing Tatum is one such man.
Oozing altogether coolness, every single freaking picture this guy is in has that “I can drive this motorcycle one handed at 150mph while shooting a bad guy on the way to the gym where I’ll chest press 450lbs right before beating you 35-0 in one-on-one hoops (with his weak hand, no less) after which I’ll drink you under the table at that hole in the wall bar where I’ll also save your life from a Hell’s Angels gang”. Seriously. He’s that cool.
One of the things that makes Channing’s style so appealing and doable for others, is his mixing and matching of casual and classic pieces. He seamlessly combines a sweatshirt you’d wear to go change the oil, with a classic trench. Who is this freaking guy? Anyway, here are a couple of F&F pieces we can see Channing wearing. Hey, you never know, right?

I may or may not have previously mentioned that the inspiration for this spring/summer F&F “collection” is heavily musical in nature.
Certainly that can mean many things, and it will most definitely reveal itself in unique and creative ways (for instance, a portrayal of Shakespeare or Marie Antoinette like you’ve never seen them…ever.)
While we can’t wait to show you this new line and our thoughts behind it, we’ll have to wait just a touch longer. Sucks…I know.
Until then, I’d like to know, what does music mean to you? What’s the roll it plays in your life?
Are you heavily influenced in your daily life by the music you listen to? Do you heed the advice of the songwriter? Or is it merely background “noise”?
I think most of us can admit that life would be pretty bland without music. It adds such flavor and opportunity for individual expression. Often when we don’t know what we are feeling or how to express it,
music will do it for you. Lose your dog and woman? There’s a song for that. Pop 15 bottles of Cristal at the club last night and get arrested on the way home? Song for that too.
If you can experience it, a musician has written about it.
Who expresses it best, for you?
Every now and then I’ll stop to see what some of my more popular playlists have been. I’ll analyze them a little to see what it says about how I’ve been feeling or what I’ve been thinking about as of late. It’s interesting. You should do it sometime and see what you can learn about yourself. Unless you’ve been listening to Insane Clown Posse. In which case nevermind. Your head is a scary place.

Even if you weren’t one of the 111 million people watching the Super Bowl (if not, what the heck were you doing?), you probably still saw this piece of advertising magic making the social media rounds.
This was far and away my favorite.
What do you think?
