Ben Lyons NBA All Star Game Selects

Saying Ben Lyons balls bi-coastally is an understatement. He was born and raised in the City-That-Never-Sleeps and now resides full-time to the City-That-Chills-The-Most. Los Angeles’ amazing weather, legalized pot and competitive sushi lunch culture don’t hurt its chill factor. Currently, he splits lanes between hosting a weekly show for NBA-TV / Twitter Sports called THE WARMUP, his on-air duties at ESPN-Los Angeles, and being a producer and contributor to FRANCHISE Magazine. He also hosts “Oscars All Access”, the Emmy Award-winning official live stream coverage of The Academy Awards. Somewhere in that vortex of sports and entertainment, Ben finds time for his own projects and was recently named Chief Correspondent of Derek Jeter’s new platform the Players’ Tribune. Ben’s New York roots run deep. His grandfather was legendary NY Post columnist Leonard Lyons, and his old man is Jeffery Lyons, one of the most respected film and theater critics alive. Ben’s…

America F*ck Yeah! Olympic Hockey Looks Available on Wanderset

The Pyeongchang Olympic Games kicked off Friday night in South Korea. You know, the Korea that doesn’t require a Trypophobia trigger warning for its 230-person-deep cheerleading squad.  Sadly, this year’s competition is missing two monster ticket sellers: The triumphant return of Tonya Harding. NHL players for the puck portion. Great job, NHL. Games that barely matter in the dead of winter somehow smite honor, glory and gold? The men’s ice hockey tournament runs from for ten days starting February 15th, yet there’s no Crosby, McDavid, Ovie or Doughty. This is the tournament of no-names. Yet there’s something intriguing about the fact that without superstars and bigger ice, it’s still hockey. It’s still just solid pucks, checks, and wristers from the blue line. Depending on how your team fares in the group stage and into the KO rounds, that could mean a maximum of seven games played during the Olympic span. That’s a lot of hockey. In honor of this, we curated the best attire for whatever rink,…

It’s NBA All-Star Week. Thank the maker.

Dunks will be slammed. 3 pointers will be drained. Defense will not be played. Defense, with the exception of the occasional 90’s boo-yah block, has never been a thing on All-Star weekend. It may hypothetically win championships but it doesn’t get ratings. Out of all the changes and new concepts introduced to the game, the stop-the-drive-defensive-fundamentals-challenge is not one of them. This year, the NBA played to its strength (bankable star power), scrapped the East vs. West format, and went with Team LeBron James vs. Team Steph Curry. Brilliant pandering. Fans voted for the captains, captains Bron Bron and Steph picked their teams like it was recess kickball, and the kids got to have their cake and eat it. No one was shocked. The NBA knows that it’s 100% a super-star driven league. More so than the NFL, NHL, MLB and MLS, hoops culture has always applauded their…

Dress To The 10s : The Modern Loverboy

Valentine’s Day is coming up. You have a cultural obligation to not shit the bed with the human you date. That means do the right thing like Spike Lee. That doesn’t mean your date wants to go to a Knicks game (the Knicks players don’t even want to go to a Knicks game). What it means is that whether you have that obligatory work dinner or something more adventurous on the docket (a swinger’s party? beret-laden poetry slam in which you “sample” chocolate stouts until you pass out? whatever kind of crazy you are, get it) your gear matters. Don’t give your girl an opportunity to roast you in the group text. Again we say… THE GEAR MATTERS. There’s several directions one can go. If you’re doing the swank cocktail thing in some dimly lit, low-pass-filter-looking neon-adorned grotto, we suggest the street luxe thing. Black moto skinnies from brands like Represent Clo, and anything Gucci Ghost re-imagined is the wave. Less is…

PARIS FASHION WEEK : 2018 Emerging Style’s Look Book

In 1945 the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture established another set of rules to determine and regulate Haute Couture houses. In order to meet the criteria, a fashion house had to ensure they followed newly imposed including that each season, a couture house must present a collection of at least 35 runs with both daytime and evening wear to the Paris press. Other rules included having a staff of at least twenty and that every design must include fittings and be made-to-order for the clientele. The ensuing Haute Couture biannual events are considered the origin of the official Paris Fashion Week. The first recognized Paris Fashion Week was held in 1973 and organized Haute Couture, Ready-to-Wear, and Men’s Fashion into one grouped showing by the Fédération Française de la Couture. The event was a fundraiser held at the Palace Of Versailles to restore the once iconic, albeit decaying, palace. It’s befitting that the event, in no small part…

#WanderSetting NYC : The Current Big Apple Look Book

As the fashion world looks to Paris in the upcoming week, we at Wanderset look to a metro that is equally as famous, but quite opposite just the same. If Paris is polish and panache, Manhattan is grit and grind. Don’t get me wrong, there is an overabundance of tres Michelin star white table cloth dining, skyscrapers that would make the Tower Of Babel feel like a cuck, and luxe fashion worn while being chauffeured in luxe cars. Maybe we’re just more brash about it here. As a product of the north east metro area, I  wouldn’t have it any other way. After all, The City is the gateway to The New World. And we all know it. It’s not that either Paris or NYC are right or wrong, in a cultural sense, it’s that NYC is just younger. It’s energy is different. There’s more pulsing and pushing, and like any little…

Crooks is back. We at Wanderset are super excited about the fact that OG street wear leaders Crooks & Castles are now a part of the Set. It’s official, LA is the street wear king of 2017-18.
