There are those moments that may seem unimportant. There are also the moments of solitude you have to yourself even if it’s just taking a last sip of coffee before you have to run out.
These moments, though fleeting, do add up to be a lot of time. This doesn’t mean that within those small moments one should not look his best. For work, a casual day out on errands or even just to lounge in your personal sanctuary, take care and attention to your style. All those minutes add up to be something beautiful to look at.
Level37- Minutes To Hours

A path to setting oneself apart while staying in perfect line has been discovered. It’s just enough to make your head turn and stop and stare for all good reason. Design comes into play as art, an extension of who you are from deep within causing a frenzy of mystery and delectable taste.
Details such as heightened footwear, slim cuts, and rich colors are ideal for the Autumn season. There are no mistakes here to learn from. It’s all perfection with flawless execution.
Level37- See And Be Seen

Man in his most prime form is a beautiful sight.
Here we see rightful risks being taken providing an example of how a man can progress and evolve.
Luxury doesn’t just happen. Style must still be at the heart and to don such attire with full knowledge, you have to bring in a sense of confidence. The proof will be in the end result.
The future at a primitive state would be shameful and there is no reason here why one should hang his head.
Level37- Proud Standard

There is strength in numbers. And that numer is 1.
Tony shows us how personality really does shine. In every scene there is a level of serious that just tells you that a phase of adulthood has passed. Not to the point where there is nothing left to discover, but to a point where it’s a sure thing.
No longer does one wonder if he has made the right choice in this or that, but you know what the effects will be to the cause.
Being sure is half the battle and presenting such an attitude is definitely a winning spirit.

J. Crew Stanton Slim-Fit Cotton-Twill Shorts
Put yourself in the blues. Not the weekday blues but one that will bring a fun twist to your weekend. Not too safe and no reason to be sorry by being all tan, these shorts give a good color break up to monotonous khaki or cargo shorts. A superior fit which makes for all day comfort will keep you in a cool blue state of mind. Take some smart attention this summer.
Level37- To The Knees
To look smart doesn’t take much in apparel. It’s about balance, taking chances, and knowing that at times less can equal out to be more.
Pairing polos with blazers or printed trousers gives it a well deserved revamp. Going for full color with white or soft blues as a canvas can create an expert look without pretense. And dont forget your soles. A good shoe can make the whole outfit making your night an easy walk.
Level37- Stay On Course

The tough guy. It’s a personality we have all wanted to emulate at some point in our lives. We then come to realize that it’s not so much an act. It’s actually a genuine way of being in mannerisms, speech, and overall aura. This is what makes such a male so desirable that everyone else looks like a button to pinch.
You don’t have to be all leather and denim. You can bring in some smart sense with specs that make you more than sight-worthy or suits that show you know how to take care of business.
Here and now, it’s all about real and gritty attitude.
Level37- Fail Safe

When pondering upon taking a new direction, you toss and turn many thoughts around. Two always cycle in the same orbit, passing the same point at an even interval on its course: Do I remain here and blend in or break free and go against the grain?
It’s rough out there. We live in a world where we are taught the right way to wear a shirt and any other way is wrong. This is wrong.
There may never be a right answer to anything. You can very well remain where you are and go with the grain to propel yourself with the energy of everyone else’s current. There is no shame in that. Or you can decide to take the route less traveled. Less traveled out of fear of not having security or being shunned by the rest of the world. But if it’s never done, who will be the next leader?
Level37- The World Is Waiting
Patrick Friebe photographed by Maciej Bernas for Lounge Magazine.
Are we at one with nature or are we trying desperately to understand it? Perhaps it’s naturally within us and we’re trying to go back in time to a place at which everything was simple and all things added up to a single being.
Whatever the driving force is, whether it’s from within or an outside source, it’s clear that nature is the power behind fresh inspiration. It’s a beckoning call from the superficial to the beauty and wonders of pure creation.
There is so much mystery to be discovered yet it’s all in front of our eyes. Truth can have a blurred vision and the only way to bring it to full focus is to continue on the journey.
Level37- More to Discover
Cameron Rowley and Richard Bell for Homme Style Magazine (Youth Isssue) photographed by Vincent Ko.
Staying in perfect shape requires perfect form. This holds true even without the workout.
Everything is a work of art from the clothes you wear, to the body you place them upon. All around, you see shapes in the finer details of everything. Every plane is a new facet- a new perspective.
How do you see the world?
