American Mens Fashion News for 20 Nov 2017

THE SNEAKER LAB by Andy Chiu:Athletic footwear has never been bigger from a business and cultural perspective. The fine line between fashion and streetwear as we all know and witnessed has become one huge and fluid world. Each... side is continually dipping in and referencing from each other. When things get too big, too popular, this old head generally loses interest. But on the positive side, we're pushing boundaries on the technical and performance front like never before. I did a piece a few months ago on the Futurecraft 3D by adidas. In just a few short months, the wheels of innovation have continued to turn with hand-over-fist changes that have gone far beyond simple branding, material, or color updates. We're now moving far beyond the days of simply rehashing old classics and really entering a new era. The...

Why Lil Peep Was an Icon forLast Thursday, the Internet poured over with a flurry of posts commemorating the passing of artist Lil Peep, who allegedly overdosed from a lethal consumption of the prescription drug Xanax. Born... Gustav Ahr, the 21-year-old Long Island native was at the brink of widespread acclaim, having accrued a sizable following on Soundcloud thanks to his unique brand of "emo rap" that melded elements of contemporary trap music with vocals and lyrical hooks reminiscent of early-2000s pop punk. With four mixtapes under his belt as well as a full-length album, Come Over When You're Sober, Pt. I, which released this past August, Peep, since emerging from the trenches of cyberspace in 2015, had become one of the music world's most polarizing figures. His poignant songs seared through heavy-hitting topics...

A post shared by Virginia Black (@virginiablackwhiskey) on Nov 19, 2017 at 11:39am PST The room is washed in a warm light from a fireplace flickering nearby. Passionfruit plays softly in the distance.... Amongst the murmuring evening crowd, Drake stands solo at a marble bar, chain glistening against his dark turtleneck. He locks eyes with a sultry woman across the room. But as he approaches, realizes the one she's headed for is none other than Dennis Graham. Drizzy is left lingering, his emotional tension matched by the chords still playing in the background. He quickly accepts his fate and walks out of the shot. Check out the clip above, a hilarious follow-up to an ad shared by Virginia Black Whiskey earlier this year. Hopefully we can expect a third in the series where Drake finally gets...
