Fashion Tips by Jetson

Coachella…

Already started getting pieces together to wear to Coachella. :)

Vans Look #3

Mismoedig Beanie (Color: Cabernet Red Heather) $16.00

-The Mismoedig, a slouch style beanie that, named only for the way it rests on your head, is a look that has become rooted permanently in skate style because it pairs up nicely with a T-shirt or flannel. Made of 100% acrylic knit, and features an Off The Wall skate logo clip label. One size fits all.

Sport Shades $12.00

-This classic sunglasses style has returned to high-demand. First brought to the fore because of their performance capabilities and sporty looks by the European motorcycle racers of the 1980’s, Vans now offers the same to the modern skater in our sophisticated Sports Shades. They’re built to last out of high-end 80% brass/20% cellulose acetate materials with UV-protecting lenses.

Wilmont Shirt (Currently out of stock.) Outlet Price $29.97

V66 Slim Jeans (Color: Black Rinse) $49.50

-A comfortable cut designed to fit more slimly through the legs has made the V66 hugely popular with skaters, because they take naturally to the rigors of super active use. Other unique design elements include hex bolt rivet details, a, The Original Since 1966 ticking tape detail on the coin pocket, a zipper fly, and a bonus label pack inspired by some of Vans’ vintage shoebox designs. Made of high-quality, slightly stretchy 99% cotton/1% Elastane.

5.Canvas Authentic (Color: Port Royale) $45.00

-Vans’ storied history, and our connection with skate and surf culture, began in 1966 Southern California with the rolling out of a single pair of shoes. They were named Authentic. In the generations since, they have only gotten more popular amongst hardcore skaters and skate enthusiasts. Their design is simple, stylish, and effective: a low top lace-up profile made with sturdy canvas uppers, and signature waffle rubber soles.

Vans look #2

Coachmen Driver Cap $25.00

-The Coachman is a sporting look that goes back to early speedsters. In those first days of long distance road races this was the preferred headwear style amongst drivers.

Damone Shades $15.00

-Like a legendary lounge act on a sweeping world tour, Vans’ Damone Shades take it all with class. Cool, calm, and collected, but always in control. These vintage look shades also benefit from sturdy modern polycarbonate construction and UV-protecting lenses. You look good in the Damone Shades.

Kendrick Jacket, Men $89.00

-Comforatable peacoat style jacket. Wool.

Graysby Woven Shirt, Men $48.00

-The Graysby is the most contemporary of button-ups. Its innovative style features signature asymmetrical chest pockets, a soft twill collar lining, and a comfortable slim fit.

V66 Slim Jeans $49.50

-A comfortable cut designed to fit more slimly through the legs has made the V66 hugely popular with skaters, because they take naturally to the rigors of super active use. Other unique design elements include hex bolt rivet details, a, The Original Since 1966 ticking tape detail on the coin pocket, a zipper fly, and a bonus label pack inspired by some of Vans’ vintage shoebox designs. Made of high-quality, slightly stretchy 99% cotton/1% Elastane.

Military Alomar, Men $90.00

-The Alomar takes styling cues from our classic Chukka Boot and infuses those subtleties with the fashionable aspects of a modern, slimmed down high top to create a shoe that pushes the boundaries between skate and street fashion. Clean-looking cupsole with detail stitching inspired by the high-end sneaker market. Full length EVA midsole keeps the Alomar comfortable all day long, while subtle heel tab logo and tread pattern are a distinct tie-back to the Vans heritage. 

The Original Surf Siders by Vans

In honor of Coachella, I decided to make a share something that is essential to my personal wardrobe; Band Tees.

Anytime I go to a concert or a local band show that I like, I always check out the merch table to see what they’ve got. I usually will also buy a CD if it’s a band I’ve seen for the first time. Band tees are a great way to show your support for local music as well as mainstream. A lot of indie bands also design their own graphics, designs, and logos to accompany their music.

My friends will often ask me what shirt I’m wearing if it’s the name of a band they’ve never heard before. It’s also a great way to share new music with my friends and gives us something to listen to when we hang out.

I highly suggest that the next time you go to a concert or a local band show, head to the merch table to see what they’ve got.

Vans look #1

Clarence Fedora (Dachshund) $28.00

-The straw fedora style has capped the heads of dapper gents since before cool was invented. The Clarence presents the look as a Vans original with a striped band and metal logo badge.

Spicoli 4 Shades (Tortoise Shell Brown) $12.00

-Radical ‘80’s beach bro fashions have carried on uninterrupted in some places, and for others, Vans continues to make those tubular styles readily available. Start your look with the Spicoli 4’s, grab your long board and foray with style into your search for some tasty waves. Made of durable 100% polycarbonate with UV-protection lenses.

Gage Knit Tank (Dress Blues) $28.00

-The super stripy Gage brings you a contemporary look in a knit style that takes after vintage beachwear. You’ll want one of these for braving through the hot weather months ahead.

Covina Slim Fit Shorts (Chocolate Bedford) $49.50

-The Covina Shorts bring you the slim fitting comfort of a pair of tailored cut-offs without actually having to take a pair of scissors to your favorite pants. This classic skater style also provides the sturdy build you require to stay strong on your skate all day long.

Canvas/Full Grain Leather Chauffeur, Men (Slate Black/Khaki) $62.00

-The Surfsider line gets into the boat shoe business with the handsome new Chauffeur, a style long preferred by men of sport and adventure. The design includes an ultra comfortable remove-and-wash footbed.

Vans 2012 OTW Berlin

Whether it’s a fad, or it’s here to stay, the varsity jacket is a must have. I find that this style of jacket works on most body shapes and still looks great. I prefer mine to be plain with no patches or writing on it, but only because that way I can customize it with my own patches. And the best part is that it’s easy to find them in dozens upon dozens of color combinations, so it’s easy to find one that works for you.

St. Patrick’s Day is easily one of my favorite holidays. So, with it fast approaching, I decided to post a singular outfit that’s good for almost any St. Paddy’s celebration. Whether you’re going to your local Irish Pub, a party, the club, or a show, this look is sure to be a hit.

  • 1MX MODERN FIT STRETCH COTTON SHIRT ($59.50 at Express
  • RUDE Black And Grey Plaid Zipper Skinny Fit Denim Jeans ($44.50 at Hot Topic)
  • Green Plaid ‘Pretender’ Glasses ($12.99 at Spencers)
  • Black Bow Tie ($3.99)
  • Authentic Bright Green/Black Vans ($39.99 at eBay)

Now keep in mind, this is just one look. The prices I’ve listed here are pretty expensive, but this is only for an idea, and any of these items can be replaced by articles of your choice. You can replace the dress shirt with a novelty tee, or replace the pants with a kilt! Have fun, play around with it.

And whatever you decide to do this St. Patrick’s Day, please be safe as there might be a lot of drunk drivers after the bars/pubs close.
