With Levi’s 501 Day just around the corner, I decided to pick out 2 pairs of the classic fit and give them my own personal twist. See how I personalized my Levi’s 501 Jeans on 501 Day back in 2018 here. Here is a quick tailor shop to finished product concept from my YouTube Channel […]
The first Spring Summer Fit of 2019, sees me in Levi's Japanese Made and Crafted jeans, as well as Air Jordan 1 Crimson Tints still. Usually, around this time of year, I am already in shorts. But I guess it hasn't gotten as humid in Bombay yet. Or perhaps it is a factor of me being sheltered by aircon at home, in my car, and at work. Add to it the fact that I seldom step out of my house (you know, no friends and no social life and what not) it still feels nice and pleasant.
We had just wound up our trip to Hanoi and Ninh Binh and came to Ho Chi Minh for some of that urban life. We had a nice little Airbnb booked at District 1 (which is the area you should consider staying in when you visit Saigon) that had all places of our interest accessible on foot.
The much-awaited return of Nike Air on the heel that was anticipated almost every year, has sneakerheads and enthusiasts excited. This Tinker Hatfield design has seen various iterations in the last 20 years, but they all carried the Jumpman logo on the heel after 1999. And although demand is high for the pair, I trust Jordan Brand to produce just the right number of pairs to ensure everyone who wants one gets one, but they also do not end up sitting on shelves for too long.
In what should be the biggest activation of all time in the Indian sneaker scene, adidas Originals launched the Nite Jogger sneaker with a multi-pronged approach. I was honored to be a part of the campaign in India (Nite Jogger was a global campaign running simultaneously) and to be recognized for the work I do in the scene.
Streetwear Fit is a segment that focusses on simple everyday outfits, incorporating brands from across the spectrum. Every fit within this segment is achievable primarily because they are simple and minimal in nature.In this edition, we focus on the adidas Ultraboost OG and how good it looks with the Levi's Engineered Jeans joggers.

March 26th marks the Nike Air Max Day.This year, my trip to Vietnam happened to coincide with the build-up to Air Max Day 2019. Lucky me, considering India hasn't been doing anything Nike specific for a long time now.I heard of G Lab, thanks to my time on Google search. I was looking for a place to pick up some sneakers or streetwear when in Vietnam. The last time I was in Ho Chi Minh, 3 years ago, I only picked up streetwear. This time, I needed to get them kicks considering I always buy sneakers from every country I visit. Had to keep the streak going.
In this edition of Streetwear Fit, I slip into the all-new Reebok Classic X Gigi Hadid Aztrek Double. It is all chunky and thicc. One of the reasons I wanted the Aztrek Double so bad is because it was a platform sneaker but also came in men's sizes!
Bangalore-based Capsul, hosted one of their pop-ups and properties - Word On The Street - last month at the Veg Non Veg store in Bombay. I was honored/flattered to be part of the panel, besides the fact that I get to shop from their Streetwear collection.
