Last week was incredible to say the least... I partnered with Audi and headed out to Circuit Of The Americas F1 track in Austin, TX for the Audi Experience. There is no other track like this in the United States with a distance of 3.41 miles, 20 turns and a 133 foot hill at Turn 1 (which is nuts). We spent most of the day in the R8's breaking the track up into segments learning from professional race car drivers all along the away about how to navigate the track in the fastest way and they definitely didn't hold back. That wasn't all the day consisted of as we got to do an Autocross course driving the new 400 Horsepower TT RS and also a Slalom segment. I always thought that with these hosted track days they didn't cut you loose to push the limits and I couldn't of been more wrong because right when you think you ran a lap faster than you think you could do it again they are there for tips you won't get anywhere else before sending you back out to push it more fast and more hard. Continued...
The track itself is a sight to see looking like something out of a video game. This place is the real deal. You get to see the F1 cars and take photos with whatever you like in which they encourage. Something to also mention is the overall vibe with everyone. There is definitely a strong sense of competition as there should be but everyone is extremely fun and easy to race with no matter your skill. Wrapping this up I could not recommend this experience more...

Always been one for things that last (some of you may be sick of hearing me say this but it’s important lol). I owned a Jewlery Company for some time and have nothing but respect for the craftsmanship it takes to create something amazing. WITNESS COMPANY has mastered the casting process with Brass,White Brass and now Sterling Silver. Everyday I come across mainly men’s jewlery that lacks so much in quality and is being sold at a very unfair price for what you are getting. This is not the case with WITNESS CO.
Recently when I was in London the guys over at BLAKE HEDLEY hooked me up with now one of my go-to coats. London was experiencing a massive snowstorm at the time so I was extremely happy to have it.
I can’t say enough about the quality of this coat and company... The jacket is made of 100% Sheepskin Shearling and looks as good in person as it does in the photos. Hit them up for sure and they will get you taken care of.

Was an absolute honor getting to meet David Beckham and a part of the House 99 official launch party. The stay at The Ned hotel was also something to mention as the pictures do it no justice. They have aesthetically captured what I would believe the 1940’s decor would of been like. I highly recommend visiting this hotel if you have any future plans to travel to London as it will not disappoint.
Simply put this was an experience of a lifetime and was amazing to get to see London in the way they planned the trip. Pure class and elegance.
While in Canada I had the opportunity to shoot with my buddy Lane. We had some whiskey and he went to work doin what he does best... Here are some of the looks.
Given the opportunity to spend New Year’s this year in a tropical paradise was most definitely incredible but to stay at UNICO 2087 really is what made the experience a trip of a lifetime... For my room selection I stayed in the “Alcoba” Suite which comes with a swim up, partially private pool. When you think 5 star this is exactly what you will get staying here either room you are in but I am partial to pools and this one was perfect lol.
Nights here are every bit as good as the days you will have. The restaurants are top notch and the beautiful architecture as well as the lighting sets the mood. The bars and nightclubs are very fun. I am a Whiskey guy as I am sure you know (which there is a good selection of the staples) but I found myself enjoying the great Tequila selection here...
If you have been to the Riveria Maya before then you know how special these beaches and water really are. On my trip there were a few cloudy days but that didn’t effect the views or amazing cabana area that UNICO 2087 has setup for their private beach. The amazing service you get 24/7 at the resort extends all the way to the water as well which makes it nice to sit and eat lunch on the beach looking at painting like picture in front of you...
To wrap this up I really don’t believe there is a way to improve the experience here. Everything worked like clockwork with outstanding service. I will be back to stay in the very near future for sure and if you are planning a trip anytime soon I would highly recommend you choose here first...
Ready to open up a bottle and get in the holiday spirit... Gonna make sure to have one neat and ready to go for the big man from up north too 🎅🏽...
I get a lot of questions about this jacket... I’ve put this thing through damn near everything you can imagine and it still holds up. If you are going to put some money into something for your closet that’s gonna last then a SCHOTT 626 jacket is for you...
This has been my third trip to Tulum and I have to say it get's better each time... This time I was traveling with Men's Fashion Post and it couldn't of worked out better. Tulum is one of those places that the photos do it no justice and you really just need to see it for yourself.
The rule of Tulum is make sure you do the excursions. There is so much Mayan history and artifacts that have been preserved so don't miss out on it. The ruins are great to see but I definitely recommend the boat excursion to the freshwater canals they built in the stone from island to island. It's a 45 minute float down a ancient Mayan made lazy river (seen in the photo below)...
Some of the Cenotes have cliff jumping so ask the locals which ones have what. There are hundreds of them and they all have different things to offer and usually are just right outside of town.
To sum it all up, I can't wait to get back down there 🤘🏼...

Fellas let's be honest... Having a beard year-round can get frustrating and sometimes even unmanageable, but I am writing this to let you know it doesn't have to be. For me the main things I look for in a product is something that is portable, effective and quickly does the job. Many of us keep a shorter beard in the summer months and a lot of other trimmer kits don't come with the right lengths to do short to long clean ups. The Conair Man All-In-1 Trimmer is truly everything you need in one. I find no need to have multiple products because it has and does everything which also helps keep my carry on lighter too.
The beard maintenance process is a ritual in itself. I believe if you have a beard or are considering growing one that you should take time to learn how to take care of it on your own. You will be able to get the exact results you want with a little practice. I always trim my beard before washing it because after I can easily see where I need to make some finishing touches...
A manly truth I would like to share is that I don't like spending more than 10 minutes on a beard cleanup nor do I think it should take any longer so an efficient product is the key here. Let's just say the Conair Man Personal Grooming System will keep you out of the barber's chair... It's a win,win.
