I've never been aware of why the idea of 'creating' seems to create such anxiety within me. There is this intimidation and this understanding [ I believe] that once you begin to unravel and truly dig into something, it becomes quite hard to turn back. I've always had this sense of awe when viewing artists who use different mediums create works of art that aren't 'obvious.' That they too have gone through a process of unveiling and destructing to become such profound iconoclasts. These last few months I've tried to deny this awareness. This 'coping' mechanism unfortunately is in no way successful, hence the anxiety. You will find that in these diary entries are such struggles. These desires to move forward and explore what excites and inspires me and this brand and with this the often louder fear of exposure. This tug of war. I've added this phenomenal piece by one of the most inspiring composers that allow me to fall into a creative space. It is from one of favorite films / visual works of art. No words.

If you have read any previous posts or have spoken to me regarding films and characters in person, then you know very well my love of characters. The death of PSHoffman just took place and when news broke I immediately thought of the loss of a great. There are so few greats. There are amazing actors and designers, and artists but there are so few greats who when they perform [create], you fear for their sanity. This brilliance which I have always sought to explore is one that carries great importance in the ability to contribute authentic and mind blowing material. Here is a Fassbender interview with TIME that I had to post.

Even before I fell into where I am. I've always had the greatest love for Robert Rabensteiner. It's been like this since 2008 with Robert, the friend in my head. #trueidol #inspiration. These people make me want to be a better storyteller in menswear. There is far too much truth in this man's story.

sirens. And for those Kate Upton fans, I said siren. Megan Fox, whom I've denied as stunning for far too long as proven otherwise. I may not support her roles but no young actress can hold a candle to this girl in sex appeal. That lucky 90210er.

Lately I've found myself listening to more hip hop tracks than usual. There is something so cool about the underdog. As I type this, I have blasted Say What's Real by Drake & it reminds me of that cool moment in the life of greats, when people see what you've been envisioning for years. You've officially proven yourself as not crazy. The way you dress, your love for your artistry, that gold watch that you've worn for years that may not have worked (but just looked too damn good to pass off). But truly, as I begin to ramble, I keep praying for my moment when [like these artists] everything comes together. Can I fucking be the fashion industry's Drake? Seriously. I've been dealing with this underground feeling forever and I'm just ready to deal with the heavy shit. Bring on the cuffed pants & the coolest handkerchiefs. Never want anything but to breathe this world. How can people not expect these kids not to be arrogant when they make it?

It isn't everyday that you can find someone with great style who can be pulled to be a face of a brand. Take a moment to view this menswear inspiration

If you weren't an addict of HOMELAND before, here are two other reasons to become on. One, Damian Lewis is in it. Secondly, did I mention Damian Lewis is in it? Here is DL in Ridley Scott's short film Desire for Jaguar F-Type.
I'm confident that I just died a little & went to heaven. You tell me why this Martone Cycling Co. bicycle is this badass. I recently passed the new Parsons School of Design building and much to my surprise, a suited guy just spun down the street with a similar bicycle and EVERYONE (who obviously understand great style) turned. All he needed was a rumble to make greater noise.

Besides the obvious reasons above, there are ONLY positives to Orlebar Brown. I first became familiar with the brand while in the Mens Editorial Department at VOGUE & immediately became addicted! Besides the bad ass prints, the brand has to have the most brilliant colors. I've started an addiction to color (officially not on me) & how it boosts the powers of black. Think Royal Blue & an Emerald Green. Anyways, fuck what you've known about shorts before. This is it & as stunning as it gets.

I can't even give him, Man of the Week. I can only say man of the month. The kid is beyond remarkable. Iconic can even be used. #americandreaming
