November (2016) Product Review

Winter is coming.

Hey guys, Jaceyon here with another review! I have a really great product that I think you’ll find to be both fashionable and functional this winter season.This winter, my favorite seasonal item has got to be my new scarf: the Scoodie Black and White Plaid with Hoodie.

Here’s a peek at the scoodie I copped in a simalar colorway!

I love everything about this accessory.

It’s thick and keeps me warm during the cold weather. Not forgetting it’s very stylish and I got it at a great price via karmaloop.com. My decision to purchase this scarf came after the price of the item, decreased from $29.00 US to $16.00 US.

The scarf can also be tied and worn in any way desired, because of the length of the scarf. As a result of the color of my scarf it goes good with most all attire.

Scoddie in Black and White plaid

What I like most about the scoodie scarf, is that it’s versatile and doesn’t only function as a scarf. But, it can be transformed into a hoodie, and a scarf with pockets for your own style and convenience. Because of the fear I have of my scoodie scarf getting damaged, in the event that my scarf is soiled.

I usually use a piece of cotton, with some gain detergent applied onto the cotton and just dab the soiled area. After I use another clean peace of cotton I then apply water to the cotton. Dabbing the soiled area, in an attempt to remove the color of the detergent.

When I was getting my scarf I came across the Red & Black Scoodie, Plaid Scarf whilst exploring my purchasing options. I observed the Red & Black Scarf for US $29 that I highly recommend, since it should be a lot harder to get soiled than the Black & White.

May (2014) Product Review

 

Plaid Scarf

Forever21.com actually has a Male department. So, Apparently that’s a thing… Who’da thunk it? I mean, I knew they were a popular clothing retailer, since my mom and sister have bought multiple articles of clothing from the store and online retailer already. Nevertheless, this was the first purchase that I had made for myself at Forever 21 Men: a simple Plaid Fringe Scarf in addition to some other articles of clothing.

I was seeking a reasonably price scarf, to add to my own personal collection of scarves. I’d hoped it would be versatile enough to complement a variety of outfits, be it semi formal or casual. In my opinion this scarf was able to meet all of my prerequisites. This scarf is very soft and was of a reasonably long length, it was true to color and I was ultimately satisfied with the pattern of the scarf. The only notable shortcoming with this scarf was the material used to produce this scarf. The only problem with the light weight, woven fringed scarf featuring a plaid pattern, is that the material is of an inferior quality, as the material tends to pull and stretch very easily.

 

Plaid Shirt

I also purchased this Classic Fit Buffalo Plaid Shirt at forever21.com Men of which I have grown to love, and consider my favorite plaid thus far. If you are looking for a classic day wear look to suit a casual or semi formal occasion, then this is the perfect plaid shirt for you. As it goes great when I often wear this shirt with my (gray, blue or black) skinny jeans. Whenever I wear this shirt I usually cuff the wrist area. It can also be tied around the waist for a casual, urban wear feel just as well… This shirt is great for the cold weather as it keeps you warm, because of the thickness of its cotton material that it’s made out of. I usually wear this shirt without a sweater or coat as the weather beings to get warmer, nearing towards the summer time. Though during the winter season one may have to accompany the shirt with a jacket or sweater of sorts.

The Shoulder Patch Cardigan in the above, along with the Basic Long Sleeve Thermal on the below, are both products of forever 21 Men. Initially upon exploring my color options the cardigan was available in, I was drawn towards the Charcoal color. But after several days of debating the best color cardigan to purchase, I made the decision that I would go with the black cardigan. Thus far I am pleased with the purchase as I regularly use the basic, red, round neck, long sleeve thermal as an inner since it complements my black cardigan perfectly. The only downfall I experienced with the black cardigan is that after it was washed. It didn’t return to its jet black color, as it collected a lot of white particles on it, even though I washed the cardigan with blacks only and followed washing instructions on the clothing.

Fashion

Many people nowadays may see various celebrities such as Nicki Minaj, Beyoncé, Kim Kadarshian, Usher along with Chris Brown, amongst others. Attempting to imitate them so badly to the point where they alter themselves, becoming obsessed and unappreciated of their individuality. I have always been leader and never a follower. A guy that has been creative, when it comes to my fashion being original. Appearance is imperative, to me fashion tells a lot about a person such as  high self esteem, simplicity, their personality, creativity, or the individual is of high maintenance. It is also commonly used as a medium, for individuals to express themselves freely to the world. When it comes to fashion I admire and keep in mind this quote, by the Amani clothing brand founder and Italian fashion designer, Giorgio Armani. “Elegance is not about being noticed, it’s about being remembered”.
