Blue Blue Japan | The Indigo Obsessives

A good friend of mine, upon being questioned about the lack of color within his wardrobe, replied that he “wears lots of colors, they just all happen to be blue.” His answer, aside from being a prime example of a good ol’ dad joke, could also be an unofficial mantra for men’s style in 2014. From Carolina to cobalt to cerulean and every shade in between the men’s clothing spectrum has officially been (dip) dyed blue, and no brand is relishing in this indigo obsession quite like the aptly named Blue Blue Japan . Not all of BBJ’s broad collection is blue, but their most intriguing pieces feature at least one, if not many shades of the color

Arnold Palmer | The Swinging King of the Polo

With seven major golf championships, a Presidential Medal of Freedom, a spot in the PGA Hall of Fame, and one helluva refreshing beverage to his name Arnold Palmer has racked up quite the cache of accolades in his day, but we think he’s deserving of just one more – The King of the Polo Shirt. During his dominating run through the professional golf circuit in the late fifties and sixties Palmer was best known for three things: his immaculate swing, his unflappable attitude, and his endless supply of polo shirts. For a shirt that is intrinsically linked to so many sports, it might seem imprudent to declare just one athlete as the epitome of a perfect polo wearer, but no one owned this pullover quite like Palmer
