LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #98 - GRAPHICAL

Nautical. Minimal. Now let's try some Graphical.

SUITEBLANCO belt
Converse Chuck Taylors
It's a close call between graphical and comical for this look's title. If I chose the latter, well… this is how I'd look like on Lookbook.nu.

LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #97 - BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD (+SUITEBLANCO STORE VISIT)

This post is all about THE shirt and the store where I got it. I also call this look, and I quote from a lookbook commenter, badass. But hey, you can also call this "dumbass" (since I'm sporting a Beavis and Butt-head shirt) but on second thought, let's just go back to badass shall we?


Now, what are you lookin' at?
Suiteblanco jacket, shirt and chinos
Converse AC/DC "Powerage" Chuck Taylors
Suiteblanco shirt; Kenneth Cole watch
Converse AC/DC "Powerage" Chuck Taylors
On to where I got most of the cool stuff you see in this look, they're from SUITEBLANCO! Pause, and read all about them HERE. Now you know who they are, it's time to check out the store.

AN A.M. A DAY #1 - TOUGH

I'm starting a new look series on my blog where I'm gonna copy someone's style.

It's more convenient for me that way since I don't need to talk much about why I'm wearing this, where I wore that 'coz honestly? I'm getting tired of talking. (To be really, really honest? I'm just lazy. Hoho.)
Tough

Ray-Ban aviators
Zara jacket
Nick Automatic shirt
Topman pants
Lacoste shoes
SM Accessories bag
So why "An A.M. A Day"?

LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #96 - #MYOH2013

The only time/event of the year where a semi-formal look with flip flops is acceptable is the Make Your Own Havaianas event. The only time I say because as much as I love the idea of working in my Havaianas, I can't. I'm not Willie. I don't own a yacht.

This is what I wore to the media night of #MYOH2013 (Make Your Own Havaianas 2013). I originally wore my "Blue Eagles" Havaianas that night but decided to make the whole look interesting for this shoot with a pop of color from the other pair I made. Mas bagay daw sabi ni Robby Carmona.
Ray-Ban wayfarers
Basic House blazer
Uniqlo shirt
Lee jeans
Havaianas
Two things that I will never let go from this look no matter how many Bloggers United I'll be participating in are listed numbers 6 and 7 respectively on F*ck Yeah Menswear's 11 Essentials.

No.6 is this navy blazer I bought from Basic House (Yesterday's the opening of their Megamall store —I got the same style in a different color)
Ray-Ban wayfarers; Basic House navy blazer
and No.7 is my eyewear brand of choice

LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #94 - SUMMER EMBLEMS

Another sunny Summer Sunday is gonna pass but why do I get the feeling that I won't be letting up my shorts and my Ray-Bans anytime soon?

So how's your summer so far? No I'm not talking to you, you lucky bastards who spent the Labor Day weekend at Boracay!

Ray-Ban wayfarers
Maldita Man shirt
Flying Dutchman shorts

Aside from sunblocks (for survival), what have you been hoarding lately to complete your looks this season? Me? The usual stuff…

LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #93 - PRINT MINIMALIST

This is my regular-day-at-work look. Simple and clean...
…with a twist.
Ray-Ban clubmasters
Forever 21 button-downs
SM Accessories belt
Topman chinos
Wade shoes
A closer look:

Twist #1: The eyewear. See those prints? Groovy eh?
@RayBanCollector clubmasters
@SMAccessories belt, Forever 21 button downs, Topman chinos
Twist #2: The footwear (including socks!). Nothing beats bite-size portions of the camouflage print to liven up an otherwise simple look. Don't forget the color of the shoes too!
@WadeShoesPR camouflage-soled shoes, Topman camo socks
Now a person looking as if he smells nice shouldn't just rely on the initial impression his clean and simple look gives off. Being "mukhang-mabango" shouldn't stop at just that. In proximity, the thought of "Ah, he really does smell good" should pop into people's head when they get pass by you.

The perfect scent for this look? David Beckham The Essence.

Simple, clean but also... with a twist. Will talk more about that next.

LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #92 - COLOR VISTA

This is how a CEO looks like when he's on a break... Obviously the lack of colors from the usual suit and tie brought out the opportunity to play with hues but I'm not the type who wears drab colors in the office on a regular basis and this vacation look is probably the most "common" that I have in my arsenal of clothing so never mind what I just said.
Now when a CEO based in the always-sunny-metro goes out on a vacation, he prefers somewhere cool and relaxing. Somewhere bad traffic is probably a myth and lunch doesn't require you to be in your suit to eat.

For these "rare" occasions, my most favorite place to escape to is Tagaytay particularly at Taal Vista Hotel.

I think this view alone is enough to convince you why.

Now you too can indulge in your well-deserved break without breaking the bank! Visit the SM Hotels Dream Destinations Booth at SM MOA starting today until April 21, 2013 for GREAT DISCOUNTS on Room, Dining, and Wedding packages and a chance to win FREE Vacation Stays!

LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #89 - THE BIPOLAR NATURE OF BEING HUMAN

Bipolar is a word that I thought I'd never use to describe a look. I've encountered its over usage last year when people started referring to the country's climate with it and I (somehow) swore to myself that I will not give in to the vocabulary "trend."
But a denim top and polka-dotted shorts worn on a hot summer day on a rooftop might suggest exactly just that.

The shorts that you see here is different from THIS one. Only a shade different. Now why in the world would I buy similar looking shorts when I could have just bought one and perhaps another in plaid? I don't know. Curious case of bipolarity? Again, I don't know.

Speaking of which, have you seen the movie trailer of Percy Jackson & The Sea of Monsters? Who's excited for it?

LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #88 - ANCHORS AWAY

It seems everybody I know is at Boracay or somewhere wet and sunny toasting themselves under the sun while I'm stuck here in Manila still working the last day before the Holy Week break starts. Yes, still no rest for the weary I know.

What's good (and bad) about our country's climate is that anywhere you go, you will always have this expectation that a beach is just around the corner. It's that hot lately.

Sometimes, when the heat gets unbearable, the idea of going to work in my shorts and just a tank top can be quite tempting. But I'm not running a beach resort nor my job is that of a lifeguard so I can't. If you want to "inject" the season in your clothing while not risking yourself for a termination because of indecent exposure at the office, try wearing something like this: Ray-Bans inside the office is optional.

Nothing screams summer better than anchors...

There's the chinos and the espadrilles too! Still office appropriate but lighter in comparison to my usual office attires.

So which part of the Philippines (or world!) are you in right now?

LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #87 - CLARK WHO?

You know that kid who grew up in a farm in Smallville?
Yes, the one who can fly faster than a speeding bullet and do other superhuman things 'coz well, he's not exactly human?
Lyle & Scott button-downs
Antony Morato shirt
Cheap Monday jeans
Converse Superman Chuck Taylors
Kenneth Cole watch
Well that kid's not me.

This is the closest I can get to cosplaying Superman circa Smallville. I just added a statement shirt plus an intriguing title to the equation and a look worthy (sort of) of a blog post was born. And oh, there's also a field!
