Chocolate-skinned elfin Modernist/Pop culture polyculturalist/film school deviant. I aim for bliss. Simple, sloppy bliss.


I like surreal art, 60s & 70s Japanese Sci-Fi movies & TV, Northern Soul, Mod culture, Ivy League style, Surf Rock, Funk music and a sheer bouillabaisse of strange, vibrant things

There are people who through their alignment, can alter the vibrational frequency of food right before they eat it. And that’s why people had begun, in the first place, to bless their food.

It is not ME that makes things happen, but the source WITHIN me. When I think of my ability to do things I realize how helpless I am alone, but when I co-create with the source within me, NOTHING is impossible.

Put This On, Season Two
If you haven’t already seen our second season, you ought to. We have six episodes, spread across our trips to New York City, London, and Milan, where we investigate what makes each city so special, style wise. A re-cap:
The Melting Pot: A look at what makes NYC diverse. Jesse talks to ‘Lo Heads — a collective of Polo Ralph Lauren enthusiasts whose style originated on the streets of NYC. Then he stops by Worth & Worth, one of the city’s best hat shops, and talks to Jason Marshall, a jazz musician with a love for tailoring. Finally, some tips on how to pack for a trip.
Eclecticism: More on NYC’s eclecticism. Jesse visits Jay Kos, a boutique that mixes the traditional and non-traditional, and goes thrifting with the guys behind Street Etiquette. Next, a chat with writer and editor Lewis Lapham about his view on clothes (one of my favorite segments, personally), and then a dissection of a suit with bespoke tailor Leonard Logsdail.  
(New) Traditions: Jesse visits some of the best London has to offer when it comes to traditional style. Savile Row’s Richard Anderson and Norton & Sons, the basement of legendary cloth supplier W. Bill, and one of menswear’s most beloved neckwear producers, Drake’s. Ian Bruce of The Correspondents also talks about his personal style.
Eccentric Style: The eccentric side of London. Guy Hills’ inventive tweeds, David Saxby’s vintage and vintage-repro offerings, and Cordings’ unique outdoor clothes. Jesse also shows us the different ways you can tie a scarf.  
Elegance: For those who love Italian style, this is the first of two episodes on Milan. This episode has an interview with Luciano Barbera (arguably one of the best dressed men today), a visit to G. Lorenzi (arguably one of the best menswear stores in the world, although they’ve since closed up shop and become Cedes Milano), and a chat with Salvatore Battello, the elegant owner of W-D Man. Plus, Jesse goes over what color of shoes you can wear with what color suits (or trousers in general, really).
Consolidation: Big brands such as Gucci and Prada are increasingly taking over Milan’s fashion business, squeezing out some of the smaller operations. Jesse visits some of these smaller artisans and shops, including bespoke shoemaker Antonio Pio Mele and the beautiful boutique 10 Corso Como. 
Extras: Lastly, some extras, including my favorite of all PTO segments, a short feature on menswear writer Bruce Boyer. David Hill also asks some hard questions at New York’s Fashion Week, and our director Ben Harrison visits the FIT Museum’s exhibit on 1930s fashion.
Again, many thanks to our funders for their support!

Put This On, Season One

Long before I became a writer at Put This On, I was a fan and a reader, and like many people, I discovered the site through Jesse’n’Team’s 10-minute webisodes. They’re fantastic, if you haven’t already seen them. Season one covers topics such as denim, shoes, the fit of our clothes, and how traditions have evolved. You can watch them free online or buy the DVD.

A roundup of episodes:

  • Denim: PTO’s first episode! Jesse visits one of the best denim shops in Los Angeles, Rising Sun, and talks to the owner about what makes a good pair of jeans. There are also some tips on how to take care of your denim, as well as recommendations for where to buy jeans at a wide range of prices.
  • Shoes: Raul Ojeda of Willie’s Shoe Service talks about what makes quality footwear; Jesse goes over basic shoe care; and our director Adam Lisagor has a tip for tying shoelaces that will change your life.
  • Work: Jesse talks to director Paul Feig about his love for suits, and Adam shows us how to tie a four-in-hand knot. Roxanna from Nerd Boyfriend also goes through some iconic photos of stylish men, showing us how to recreate those looks with things we can buy today (or rather, in 2010, when this episode was first released). Lastly, Jesse goes over the dos-and-don’ts of how to dress for a job interview.
  • Grooming: Jesse visits his barber and later gives a how-to for the classic wet shave. There are also some useful tips at the end on how to avoid those gross yellow pit stains that can occur on shirts.
  • Tradition: An episode on traditions and where they’ve gone. Jesse visits one of the oldest clothiers in the US, J. Press, to talk to Jay Walter about his career in classic American tailoring. Later, he interviews Thom Browne, a designer who has been known to take traditional, 1960s styles and tweak them for a more modern look.
  • Body: How should your clothes fit? Jesse visits Carl Goldberg of CEGO Custom Shirtmaker to find out how a shirt should properly fit, and then the legendary Alan Flusser to chat about how men can dressy according to their body type. Lastly, he visits his tailors back home in Los Angeles to show how you can get a better fitting off-the-rack shirt with some simple alterations. 
  • Personal Style: The elegant, quirky, distinctive, and everything in-between. Field correspondent Dave Hill reports from the Corduroy Appreciation Club (where Jesse once gave a keynote speech), and Roxanne from Nerd Boyfriend investigates Andre 3000’s unique look. Plus, a conversation with Gay Talese, a man who not only has a celebrated writing career, but also his own signature lapel style.

Many, many thanks to our funders for their support!

They always tell me that assholes just spring forth into your life and that you just have to push them away, but then I realize that I have full vibrational control of who comes into my life and who isn’t allowed in.

The natural state of mankind, … is a matriarchy. However many thousands of years ago, the world was run by women, and I guarantee you in that world men had a job to do but they also got scoopis (?) when they got home and shit like that and three fuckin’ squares. And there wasn’t forced labor. Are you saying that women are morally better than men? No, I’m saying that a patriarchal society where rape culture, violence, and war are fuckin venerated at every [turn] and any small fucking incremental change in that giant, hideous edifice of a paradigm where men are free to do whatever they want and capitalists are free to exploit whoever they will is abhorrent and wrong against human nature. We, as entities, would be generous with one another if given the fuckin opportunity and not controlled by these horrible outside forces.

The patriarchy is an ego balloon that must be deflated for everyone’s safety.

Varieties of Religion

timeispoetry:

Abandon all
Varieties of religion
And live in peace.

Go with the Supreme Truth
And live in peace
It is like watering the root of a tree.

Give love
And live in peace
And see everything all right.

Wait not for the result
Go on performing your own duties
And live in peace.

Peace, peace, and peace
It is in you, my dear, please see.

Get on that rampage and things will start flowing and you will feel invincible. Not only do I feel it, I know it and I AM it. ↘

homeiswithinme:

I’m abundant. I’m awesome and amazing. I’m worthy. I’m so worthy, ugh. It warms my heart. I am divine love. We all are. I know that I am in direct communication with my Source/Non-Physical Being because I can feel it.

What defines me is right now! Not five minutes ago, or five hours, or five…

If someone is in your life, you have attracted them. And while it is sometimes difficult to believe, you also attract everything about your experience with them— for nothing can come into your experience without your personal attraction to it

You don’t attract well being, it’s continuously flowing. You are either letting it in or resisting.
