Suggestion- Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar...

Now this is not our typical review. However when i started this blog i wanted to incorporate alot of diffrent aspects of art, fashion and culture into S&S so here it goes. Alot of people i run into seem to know a decent amount of philosophical information but are not to good at explaining or retaining too much of the information. This book however written by Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein is a more understanding approach to the philosophies of our age. I believe every man should know a thing or two about philosphy and find what his personal view of the world actually is. Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar... is an easy and hilarious way to venture into the world of philosophy and a funny introduction to even the grimest of themes. I would definently suggest this book to any man trying to find a meaningful read and any man that is interested in philosophy in the slightest of ways. Remember to keep yourself looking sharp you also have to keep yourself thinking sharp. S&S gives this book an 8.5/10. Enjoy. By the way a video will be posted soon by myself but more on that later.

Label Review- Toddland

Toddland is a relatively new label that has made its mark on the casual fashion market for the the past 3 to 4 years Toddland has a simple approach and its making "awesome" clothing that people would love. I would have to say the Toddland bug has rubbed off on me and i own 2 of there really simple and really casually cool graphic t-shirts. Since summer has been dawning on San Antonio for some time now i've been looking for easy go to summer friendly garments and toddland is one of my go-to labels for anything casual. Their website is also a really cool experience if you would care to check that out. We give toddlang a 7.7/10. Definently a good rating for an up and coming brand. Hope you guys enjoy toddland as much as i do. Farewell.

Label Review-Rogues Gallery

One of my more recent favorites. Rogues Gallery is based out of Maine and has a way of combining nautical aspects and traditional styling with modern fits and edgy designs. The labels recent collaberation with J.Crew also has provided some impressive products. Another venture of Rogues Gallery is also its Never Sleep line that seems to have a more youthful styling to it and has recently released some products exclusive to Urban Outfitters. S&S gives Rogues Gallery and its projects a 9/10. Hope you enjoy the label as much as we do.(My personal favorite products of the Rogues Gallery label have to been the edgy but simple graphic tees.)Enjoy!

My New Thing-Untraditional Tie Clips

So this past month i was once again at one of my favorite antique malls here in San Antonio and i came across a tie clip shaped like a pair of scissors and i thought it was the coolest thing. Here are some more examples of the types of clips im into now and maybe it will inspire you to have some fun with your tie clips. Enjoy!

Recommendation-Moscot Nebb

Moscot is a very reputiable label that gots its start in New York in 1915. If you're looking for classy frames or sunglasses they definently are the best in their class. I personally wear the New Grey Moscot Nebbs that came out this year and i would have to say that the elegant design, the glass lenses, and the personal take on the online delivery process has me convinced that these are the best pair of glasses i have owned.
