4th quarter. Game on the line. Who you gonna trust to take the suited and booted game winner?

Stacy Adams (click here for the third quarter).

To conclude this year’s collaborations with Stacy Adams x GQ, I got a helping hand from my good friend and fellow menswear influencer, Jose “Rule of Thumbs” Figueroa. If you’re not familiar with him, I suggest you check out his Instagram (here), where he’s basically been killin’ it. Since we were both approached to style some fits for this FW15 campaign, it only made sense for us to team up. I mean, it’s been a long time coming, really…

We met up in my hometown (Torrance, Old Town to be exact) to shoot these looks in hopes to elevate the dapper (or lack there of) aesthetic in the South Bay. Growing up in the area, suits and boots aren’t part of the norm, straight up. After all, it’s more or a less a suburban/beach area, so streetwear and flip flops are the go-to. Within 5 minutes of walking around and photographing, people took notice (mind you, there wasn’t even a lot of people out during this time). Old Town Torrance has a small town feel, so I felt like it was completely appropriate for the cause. Between the odd stares and compliments, I’d say we shook things up. Whether or not we succeeded to make long term changes remains to be seen, but here’s to hoping that fashion gets a little proper.

That aside, what this is really for is the footwear that Stacy Adams entrusted us to rep. In this set, I went with the “Dowling” while Jose sported the “Beckett” boots. Just a quick look at both of these suede accented leather boots, and you could tell they’d be instant classics. Above and beyond appearances, these boots are hands down, some of the most comfortable boots I’ve ever worn (real talk). Thanks to a flexible rubber sole, they literally feel like your favorite pair of sneakers. Dressed up or dressed down, these kicks are suited for whatever your day/night calls for.
