Navajo Lace-Ups at Oki-Ni are a good way to get your kicks (literally?) without planning and executing a complex color scheme with the entirety of your closet. I found them during my weekly online shopping excursion, and I got really into them… but I also have a thing for Native blankets and those super-cool Southwestern jackets. If you get trapped outside on a group camping excursion (or if your car breaks down in the middle of nowhere), it would be great to have a pair of these Navajo lace-ups on hand… so you can justify the buy by saying that these shoes are “for emergencies.” They look practical and are inspired by 1970s footwear, and they have gum soles.

I love Brooklyn Circus, especially after last fall’s collection of letterman-style sweaters and collegiate pieces. If there’s something I enjoy, it’s the pseudo-Yale separates that make me want to eat ivy and row boats. The new spring/summer 2011 drop delivers, too, but in an entirely different way. Brooklyn Circus’s newest pieces are a blend of solid fabric along the body, plus a patterned panel along the arms, and all the standard trimmings of a button-up shirt. Very nice, very nice indeed–especially the one in grey.

Scarves! We all need ‘em, and this White Riot Gang editorial in GQ Style Italia has enough panache to leave us wanting a few more for flourishing purposes. Of course, the sense of movement in the spread, shot by Kai Z.Feng, is helped along by jumping, plus wind machines lifting light scarves for extra movement. As for the actual labels in the spread? We have Louis Vuitton, Hermes, and Gucci making an appearance in GQ Style, looking perfectly good with blazers, jeans, and coats (double-breasted welcome).

My interest in the Royal Family and the upcoming Royal Wedding is minimal. While I do find the history of the British monarchy interesting, the idea of royalty nowadays feels rather antiquated. I suppose I see the larger picture of why the Royal Family are still useful; a harmless necessity I guess. But that Kate Middleton is something to look at, am I right?
I already know way too much about the 29-year-old fiancee to Prince William and what she might be wearing on her wedding day (and that includes underneath her wedding dress – thanks US Weekly!), but she is a very attractive young woman, future queen or not, so I’d be remiss if I didn’t present a carefully curated photo gallery of the princess-to-be.

Amar’e Stoudemire and his New York Knicks teammates are assuredly in playoff mode, but the NBA star also has fashion on his mind. Stoudemire recently did a photo shoot for Vogue’s April issue and was seen front row at many of last season’s fashion week shows, one of which he sat next to Anna Wintour, so you know he means business – on the court and off.
Then we have word that J. Crew will – finally – be available in the UK. It’s online only, but still, any opportunity to get a look at those tailored jackets and slim-cut chinos is all good. What else is all good is the news action we have collected below!

Becasue even though it’s springtime (and soon enough summertime), the temperature is known to take a dip when the sun goes down. And this lovely wool cardigan from Aubin & Wills is just the right knitwear for keeping warm and looking cool.

Miami Heat basketball star Lebron James is no doubt gearing up for the NBA playoffs. But in between practicing jump shots, the superstar athlete is also busy tweaking the Lebron James brand, which takes a rather luxurious turn with the signing of a new deal with Audemars Piguet.
The luxury men’s watch brand has brought on James as their next global brand ambassador.

Do you own a pocket square? If not, now might be a good time to find one because none other than Neiman Marcus men’s fashion director Nick Wooster (above) says ‘You Must Have a Pocket Square This Season.’
The straightforward headline is from Christianna Ablahad’s interview with the stylish Wooster for Racked.com. She caught up with Wooster in San Diego at Neiman Marcus Fashion Valley; he was on location to present men’s spring looks and basically show the fellas an up-close example of how it’s done.

So Jay-Z has decided to launch a new lifestyle website. For whatever reason. We have more on that below, plus word that Singapore is on its way to becoming the next fashion capital of the universe, the return to tailoring for men, two items on the bow tie, pretty girls and more.
