When vacationing the last thing you want to worry about is your clothes. If you’re a person that normally dresses well, it’s just healthy to not even think about what you’re wearing for once.
You should go for your most comfortable clothes and make the place you’re visiting feel like home. This is why on my last trip to the beautiful Medellin, Colombia; I wore a basic T-shirt, TOMS and white jeans. I went for simple clothing and basic colors, so I could blend in with the locals. Thought I added to my outfit an oversized bowler hat (similar to Pharell Williams!) to stay true to my stylish self.
El atuendo perfecto para las vacaciones:
Cuando estas de vacaciones, la ultima cosa en la que te quieres preocupar es lo que llevas puesto. Si eres una persona que normalmente te vistes bien, despreocuparte de tu ropa por alguna vez es simplemente saludable.
Por esto mismo, en mi ultimo viaje al hermoso Medellin; me quise poner una básica camiseta, TOMS y pantalones blancos. Quise también utilizar solo colores simples para mezclarme con la población. Sin embargo, le agregue a mi atuendo un sombrero como el de Pharell Williams para ser fiel a mi personalidad.
Almost every man wears leather. However, the right leather accessory can become your ultimate show of individuality and sophistication. So next time you buy leather shoes or a duffle for traveling, make sure you get a tone of leather that distinguishes you from the rest, a design that calls for elegance but always quality that will last for ages.
Below you will find a list of links of my latest acquisitions of leather & more…

Hi guys! I’ve been wanting to blog about the bomber jacket with tie. This combination is special because the comfortability you get from the casual attire and the empowerment a tie & shirt will give you.
The whole outfit consists of Black Sisley pants, a black tie, white shirt and vivid blue bomber jacket with matching Nike Genicco sneakers. This outfit is really easy to copy, however I recommend to stay away from any shirt with patterns or colors because the simpler the inner outfit is, the more playful you can be with the color of your jacket and sneakers.
La Chaqueta Cazadora con Corbata & Camisa
Hola chicos! He querido hacer un blog acerca de la chaqueta cazadora con una corbata. Esta combinación es especial por la comodidad que te de la ropa informal y el empoderamiento la corbata y camisa les dará.
Todo el conjunto consiste de un pantalón Negro Sisley, una corbata negra, camisa blanca y chaqueta cazadora azul con tenis que combinan Nike Genicco. Este conjunto es muy fácil de copiar, sin embargo les recomiendo que se mantengan alejados de cualquier camisa con diseños o colores, porque entre más simple el conjunto interno es, más pueden jugar con los colores de su chaqueta y zapatos.
Medellin, Colombia. August 2014
Being in Bogota gives me an effortless sense of style. I’m always
impressed of how well dressed most of the population in Bogota is. It
might be because the cold weather or just a coincidence, but it really makes me proud to see elegance as a common Colombian trait.
Whenever I wear jeans I like to define my attire as effortless.
everything goes well with jeans! Especially brown leather like the Ben
Sherman brown leather oxfords I’m wearing.
The Mandarin blazer adds some character to my outfit and the printed scarf
that features all the tones of my outfit completes what I call a
El estar en Bogota me da una apreciación de estilo tan fácil! Es que siempre me siento impresionado de lo bien que la mayoría de la población Bogotana se viste. Podría ser por el clima frío o simplemente una coincidencia, pero realmente me hace sentir orgulloso de ver la elegancia como algo común en Colombia.
Siempre cuando me pongo jeans; siento que mi atuendo no tiene mucho esfuerzo, casi todo se ve bien con jeans! Especialmente el cuero cafe como los zapatos Ben Sherman que me puse.
La chaqueta de cuello mandarin (cuello corto levantado) le da un poco de carácter al atuendo y la bufanda estampada con todos los tonos de mi atuendo completan lo que me gusta llamar un look Bogotano.
When wearing more than one top is unbearable because the summer heat, the buttoned up trend can spice up your summer attire. It’s not like one button or two will make any difference when the humanity or hot sun rays are on your way.
I also added a stylish hat to combat the summer rays and take this outfit to the next level. This leather fedora is from Colombia & it matches perfectly my oxford Aldo shoes.
Lately “The fitter the better” has became the norm. Men feel more confident than ever to wear tight clothes, this is why almost every brand carries slim fit clothes that enhance the men’s figure.
However, when is slim fit a little too much? It’s really a matter of preference, personally I think as much as I love fitted clothes, there are times I want a more generous cut that gives me comfortably.
in this look I decided to wear a traditional fit button down with much more fitted shorts because the contrast between the two gives my outfit balance and individuality.
It’s my second time wearing camouflage with a blazer, this time with different colors. You can see the other look by clicking HERE.
Easy as matching the colors of the print, this outfit is especially perfect for Florida, where the heat is unbearable and cuffed pants & tank tops are part of the norm.
I especially like how tank tops look with blazers, because just as deep-neck T-shirts, tank tops enhance your chest and the blazer adds the formality a gentleman always wants to transmit.

With warm weather almost anything is acceptable, but I’m not going to tell you to put anything crazy on. Instead, I’m going to show you how I spice up a simple “one tone outfit” (outfits containing different shades of the same color, my latest obsession!) only by adding one of a kind prints in the right places.
Look for prints that aren’t that common. If you want to innovate a little, definitely skip the floral print and patterns because it’s what everyone is already wearing. For instance, I picked these Taylor Vintage shorts for their very unique print & the best is that they are reversible, so it’s like I got 2 in 1.
This look features different shades of pink with white Steve Madden ‘Reston’ Leather sandals at the bottom and a very light Jean Paul Gaultier panama hat at the top. Get the reversible shorts by clicking here and pair it with a polo like my pastel pink you can get by clicking here.
I’m not getting any taller and the skinny pants trend isn’t anywhere. I figured the best way to add a little personality to my bottoms is to roll them up.
How to cuff your pants? Whether you’re doing it to show your shoes or socks, if you over do it, it can look very wrong. The cuff should start at the top of each ankle and it should be 2-3 inches thick. This is my personal taste, but I assure you it will make you look neat at all times.
My most comfortable shoes are featured in this look too. TOMS Cordones have a very simple but beautiful design, perfect for almost any occasion. I decided to wear them with a corduroy blazer, and a buttoned up shirt to add neatness to my Bogota look.
This is a relaxed and completely effortless look, not to mention it was very affordable (under $40!) not including the shoes (Hugo Boss Thannio).
Everything I’m wearing is from H&M, I will put the links in the GET THE LOOK at the end of this post.
Remember to tuck in your shirt/henley or whatever you have on when wearing suspenders.

Once again in Bogota, I wanted to showcase a little of what I see men are wearing in Colombia. Boots and sneakers are Colombian men top choices, so I decided to wear brown leather boots, which I matched with a wood Rosary necklace, these are still big here plus it gave my outfit I wanted with the white shirt.
I also wanted to wear my signature Colombian bag (Mochila) which I’m sure it’s not the first time you see it. These bags are hand made in woven wool, cotton or wool sisal with colors ranging from colorful earth colors such as brown, beige to grays and black. You’ll be shocked if I tell you that you will actually see more men wearing these bags than women do, only because women tend to go for more sophisticated trendy styles.
I wore a green crew neck sweater, fitted dark orange chinos and to complete this statement outfit a new pair of shoes I fell in love with in Santa Monica Third Street Promenade’s Urban Outfitters.
Pairing bright colors looks naturally well; as the orangish Nevada desert and green plants contrast in the background of these pictures.

I was visiting the hot San Diego, California. The heat was unbelievable, so I knew it was the perfect occasion to just mix hot weather basics with bright colors just so the outfit will be a little more fun.
Ralph Lauren Polo, fitted shorts and tan shoes & braided belt with a sweater wrapped over my shoulders had me looking very classy, but still cool enough not to die of overheating.
