Top 5 Travel Portfolios: Passport to Paris

I’m going to Paris later this month for Fashion Week, and I want to make sure my passport goes first-class all the way. It’s one of the best travel mementos you can have, so I like to treat it well.

How could I refuse a stay at the new Kingkey 100 property, a.k.a. the tallest building in Southern China?! I’ve stayed at many St. Regis hotels before– NYC, Aspen, and Beijing – it’s hands down one of my favorite hotel brands.

In Paris, the men’s shows for Fall/Winter 2013 continued, leading to another round of fine bags for men, that I’m looking forward to gracing the city streets. The French houses (and an American) managed to create covetable accessories that were neither too outlandish nor feminine. So the question I have to ask is who’s your … Continue reading Men’s Bags of Fall 2013: Part 2

Men’s Bags of Fall 2013: Part 1

The only reason I want to hear about cold weather nowadays is because of the related gear (read: bags) and threads. Otherwise, I really don’t about the chilly days and nights of winter, as layers are only so much fun for a Florida guy.
