Setlist : The Must Have Essential Boots For Fall 2017

Boots are the trendiest item that never seems to go off trend, traverse south, or subside. It’s like they’re literally culturally allergic to the valleys that all “it” items eventually tumble down. Maybe it’s because they’re hyper masculine, versatile without attempting to be a Swiss Army Knife, and are the one item, save leather jackets that ride the line between rugged and sleek, aggressive and polished. Having said all that, here are some of the must have essentials for Autumn, the ideal season for boots. Boots are so autumn, they should all come with a pumpkin spice beer, candied apple, Hot Toddy, and NFL Red Zone. Sadly these don’t, but they’re stellar enough to not need the Happy Meal treatment. But feel free to rock them en route to getting your own craft Pumpkin Spice Beer. As far as a pumpkin spice fall beer goes – I recommend the “Roadsmary’s…

Heart X Sole : The Sneaker Steve Story

Sneaker Steve Patino is a very influential man in footwear. You may not know his name because it’s not on the actual sneaker like a certain basketball great, but you damn sure have seen his work, wore his vision, or proudly rocked an effort of his. He’s made some massive moves that have changed the way we view fashion in general, quarterbacked collaborative efforts between skaters, rappers, luxe designers and rock stars, and it really all began with a lot of passion, and a little bit of square footage in Elmhurst Queens, NY. Picture the late 80’s/early 90’s in the city that never sleeps. Rows and rows of squalid brick housing, Chopped Cheese selling Bodegas, (if you don’t know what Chopped Cheese is, find a noose pal.) boxy BMW’s weaving lanes blasting A Tribe Called Quest and Wu-Tang, and Gangstarr. This was back in the era when all 8…

September #Setlist : The New Ivy League Look : Yale

The are 8 storied, historical educational institutions that make up the northeast’s “Ivy League”. Steeped in history, mystery, and, well, of course, ivy, these universities have given us not only the greatest minds from the most powerful families, but arguably the coolest fashion, in Americana. With apologies to Wanderset’s founder, the homie Greg Selkoe (who once stalked the streets of Cambridge in his crimson Harvard gear) and John F. Kennedy (who did the same but to lesser effect and social impact) I’m leading off the September Setlist “Ivy League Look” with Harvard’s most hated rival, the blue and white “Illuminati Hogwarts”, Yale. Blame it on me being from New Haven. Plus dark blue and white look super sharp together. Here’s the modern take on the Ivy traditionalism, with some really dope selections from Comme des Garcons, Publish, Android Homme, David Kind and Eton. Shop the look by clicking the image,…

Bladerunner Is A Fashion + Culture Game Changer.

I saw the first Bladerunner when I was 17 years old. I recently got booted out of college just 3 weeks into my first semester as a freshman (talk about triumphant moments) and the last thing I did was steal the DVD from the school’s library. I don’t know why I did it. Maybe it was my version of a walk off homer in the 9th. Maybe I was angry. But if I’m honest with myself, I jacked it because the cover screamed at me. The moody smoke and shadows, the dimly lit neons ominously illuminating the skyline, the face of Indiana Jones/Han Solo/The coolest guy alive Harrison Ford holding that laser cannon like some kind of comic book vigilante just hit me. It almost made losing a soccer scholarship just fine. I knew I would love the film. I got back to my parents crib and watched it immediately.…

Discover Why Android Homme Is The Hottest Footwear Line You Haven’t Heard Of.

Android Homme has been making huge waves in rather exclusive circles for a few years now. Founded by LA based creative Javier Laval, Homme wanted to truly elevate footwear. With all due respect to Nike, Adidas, Rebok and the other mainstream internationals, Homme has crafted an innovative niche, where the athletic functionality meets futuristic progression, and the tastemakers noticed right off the bat. And while they lacked the over promoted awareness of the big boys, and never got the “flavor of the week” treatment from insincere, and often trend hopping bloggers, Homme accomplished something bigger and better. Android Homme achieved respect on their own terms. A favorite footwear designer of superstars and super aware fashion forward influencers, Homme has slowly but surely grown into the juggeraut you may have not heard of yet, and that’s fine with them. You will. Because when you’re this good, they can’t ignore you. Here’s…

20 Brands You Need To Know On Wanderset

The Office Offset.

5 Amazing Kicks That Perfectly Offset At The Office. Trends, for the most part, are fickle stupidity that most often is the product of 2 sources. Their origins are either engineered (in no small part) by a combination of corporate agenda budgets, or sprung upon us via a super obscure Tumblr tween, and the irony factor catapults them into seasonal limelight. You see, whether its agenda or accident, the outcome is mostly similar. They drop, they’re hot, the look or item is everywhere for a season, often embodying an era (think brands like Ed Hardy and SMET circa 2007) and then, the trend collapses into parody from the weight of it’s own exposure. Having said all of that, some trends are excellent, and they have cultural legs and standing power, transcendent of a season. This is one of them. I call it the “Office Attire Offset”. We can blame this…
