Project Day 1

 Hello, from Las Vegas!  I am reporting live with the Blogger Project at
 Project Show this season.  Today, i'm showing you two looks I styled from GANT and Grayers.
I had the opportunity to walk around and curate a look based on some of my favorite pieces.
Let's take a look at the upcoming collections...

Downtown Denim

Prepping for some exciting projects this week-
you can stay tuned on my IG and/or Twitter for regular updates on all my ventures!
Meanwhile, let's talk about this kick ass denim and my favorite sweater for Fall!
Nothing beats crisp, indigo selvedge denim like this pair from Armani Exchange.
One can never have too many denim jeans- erm, right?  
I know you guys are always emailing and asking where you can find quality denim that won't break 
the bank, and I highly reccomend A⎮X.  
The new Fall '14 collection has a variety of cuts and washes to fit each of you Gents! 
 I prefer the 'Skinny' jean option as they are most flattering to my body type.
Which cut is your favorite?  Please share!
You guys know me and my blues.  
When I walked into the Armani Exchange store last week, my eyes instantly glanced over to the
chambray and sweater collections.
I couldn't resist this chambray shirt in the perfect dusty blue.
 Cali layers and killer denim details!
My bracelet addiction continues; picked up this blue leather braided one to add to my arsenal.
Sweater: Armani Exchange, c/o
Shirt: Armani Exchange, c/o
Jeans: Armani Exchange, c/o
Bracelet: Armani Exchange, c/o


Shawl collar sweaters are my favorite style from this upcoming Fall season.
 This one by Armani Exchange is no exception.
Its so versatile, and can be dressed over a shirt and trousers, or down with denim and chukkas.

I was surprised to find how affordable everything was at the A⎮X store.
It's always great- and convenient- to find a place that houses all of your sartorial needs.
Hope you enjoyed this Haul-Breakdown.
Let me know if you'd like to see more!?

Cheers,
Blake Scott

GQ Quarterly Goods

 The GQ "Smell-Better-Than-Ever" tool kit was part of GQ's first-ever Quarterly box.
It was full of manly goodness that had my place smelling- well, pretty damn clean!.
Here are the goods...
Bulgari's Aqua Amara Shampoo has a spicy and citrusy scent that's sure to invigorate your 
morning, and get you on the go.  I was never one to go for these types of scents, 
but this guy has really been growing on me.  I feel refreshed, and love catching that nice whiff 
throughout the day.
I am a sucker for candles, especially when they come packaged like this
one by Aedes de Venustas.  Place this guy anywhere in your home for a nice scent
and/or decoration.
Purchase Box HERE and use discount code AEGQ10OFF for $10 OFF!
Fulton & Roark solid cologne & Carta D'Armenia burning papers
have seriously changed the game as far as cologne and scented sprays are concerned.
The newest movement in cologne is solid- yes, solid and not spray-on.
In the middle of the day, swipe this open, and rub on your wrist or neck.
Instantly, you're ready for happy hour with the boys, or date night with that special someone.

As for Santa Maria Novella's burning papers, say goodbye to that clunky spray
in your restroom, and hello to this sleek life-savor.
When it comes to de-odorizing your bathroom, grab a pair of matches
and light these up.  Each burns for about five minutes-
just enough to wash up, tidy up, and head back out the door.
These are especially great when traveling, or when you have guests over.

I'm so happy to share these goodies with you guys.
Thanks to GQ and Quarterly,
i'm able to keep you guys up-to-date on all the latest gadgets and products
to keep you on your A-game.
Purchase Your GQ x Quarterly Box HERE

Cheers to the weekend Gents!
