Ladies and gentlemen, brought to you by way of fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada: The Killers. Hopefully, you recognize the frontman of said legendary modern band at the top of the page, of course. Fittingly, it’s another momentous Friday in my neck of the woods (just as with NYFW last week!), all because I had the lucky chance and extreme privilege to see one of my favorite bands play just a few short days ago.
That’s right: My fall is kicking off in fine, high-voltage, rollicking fashion, as I trekked South to Orlando to see the iconic Brandon Flowers & co. stop through the city on their fall tour — and it won’t be the last time I see them in the weeks ahead, either.
Of course, you can keep up with all the fun on my Instagram, but it’s bigger than that: I’ve long admired Brandon Flowers (and The Killers) for their sense of style, certainly, along with a deep drive and sense of ambition, passion, work ethic and showmanship. In fact, lest we forget, I had the chance to interview Mr. Flowers himself for Esquire.com last year — it’s still a highlight of my work as a freelance writer. I could go on, but for now, I’m still thinking of that stellar show — and looking forward to a standout weekend in Orlando with family! Again, you can keep up with all the fun on my Instagram. Cheers & let’s start this weekend in style, shall we?
- Today’s first style highlight of the week is a fitting one, seeing as we were just talking about a lead singer with a penchant for stylish outerwear. Now, I don’t know whether Mr. Flowers is a fan of San Francisco menswear purveyors Taylor Stitch, but if you are, then you’re in luck: I just wrote about one of the best new bomber jackets on the blog yesterday. Happy shopping, my friends.
- Speaking of stylish outerwear once more, here’s another suggestion to outfit you for fall adventures. Layer up to hit the trail or head to your cabin — or an upstate getaway — wearing one of the best anorak jackets. Helpfully, I dove into the best options for the season over at AskMen. Let’s get right to it, folks.
- Here’s one more style pick to add to your wish list today. The art of fine watchmaking is something I’ve continued to learn about over the years, especially writing for Maxim.com, which is why it was such a pleasure to cover the newest Longines luxury timepiece earlier this week. Add it to your wish list, folks.
That’ll wrap things up today here on the blog, as I’ve got some Orlando exploration on the docket (and a theme park visit or two lined up!). As always, thanks for reading — now, do me a favor and go listen to The Killers!
