I started this blog 2 years ago to mainly talk style, and I've learned in that time that actually, I can have more of an impact and connect with others through my stories. My life has not been perfect. I've made some huge, monumental mistakes, and had to learn things the hard way at times. I've also had many successes and a whole lot of fun, so that's why I've decided to shift gears a bit and focus more on stories and style together. I want to share my genuine raw experiences in hopes that they will enable me to connect, learn, and grow with you guys!

Fall Inspiration

It’s the most wonderful time of the year (and no, we are not talking about X-mas or the return of  Pumpkin spice lattes)!. For the fashionisto, fall is a sacred time where one can tout his mastery of textures and layering.

Layering up: the AMAS way

You will want to invest in pieces made of Merino Wool and Cashmere. As far as layers go, cardigans are your friend. The easy hack this season, is to make your outwear the outfit. One simple t-shirt or button up - with jeans and boots - can be elevated with the use of a topcoat, quilted vest or Peacoat. Switch out the jeans with slacks, add a tie with a tie bar, and that’s another sophisticated look for the office. No matter what your style is, make sure your autumn looks are as crisp as the weather.

Father Time

Father time is a fictional reminder that time is the ultimate luxury.  On the third Sunday in June, many of you will be enjoying father time. Do yourself a favor: skip the tie or the worlds best dad mug this year.  Give him a gift that symbolizes that his presence is always missed and felt. A Casio Edifice watch is an honorable way to edify your favorite man.  

fullsizeoutput_e9b.jpeg

The Gift of Choice.

If time is a luxury, the vessel should match the aesthetic. This sophisticated timepiece - encased in stainless steel - will have many admiring the craftsmanship. With stylish carbon fiber dials, you will notice that functionality doesn't have to be sacrificed for luxury. When designing this watch, Casio had the adventurous man in mind; hence crafting a men's luxury watch that could withstand the everyman's lifestyle. With features like 100m water resistance coupled with a solar power battery, this watch works past your 9-5.

 Like the hourglass that father time carries, this luxury watch will be a reminder of a great time spent while functioning as the tool to countdown the moments before a beloved memory.

Tomonik aspiring entrepreneur and baker. 

A Man About Style has partnered with Le Foodie co & Maasi Development Project to help a young entrepreneur achieve her dream. Tomonik is a young Kenyan girl from the Maasai Development Project.

She now wants to open a bakery!  With every purchase of a Le Foodie Co bakers delight T-shirt this quarter, they are donating 20% of the net proceeds from the  "Bakers Delight" T-shirts and 10% of the net proceeds from the other t-shirts to help Tomonik bring her vision to life!

About Maasi Development Project. 

MDP Sponsored Children:  

  • MDP Education Center(MDPEC) was founded in November 2010.  The centre has been home to over 70 girls throughout the years. Working with the Child Services Department, MDPEC is a home that is a safe refuge for many girls that have been rescued from forced early marriage, FGM (Female Genital Mutilation), or have been “at-risk”. They are orphaned or come from a single parent household who cannot support them and are at risk of being sold into marriage by a close family member.  MDP provides a safe environment to live and provides education to each child, through college, university or technical School, resulting from their government qualifying exam scores.

MDP Sponsored Trips:
