To say black is the new black is a given. When is black never new?
A clean slate, it always looks sleek and cool when done right. Give it a twist, playing up on the different shades of black by incorporating the use of various textures in one ensemble. Leather, cotton, silk, and fur all yield a unique attitude and shows off a certain flair that tells you that black is not so plain.
There are many sides to man and black can be used as a vehicle to translate emotion into a tangible feeling. Black can allow you to stand out or get lost. It can hide you within the crowd or be a beacon towards a new horizon. However you choose to express yourself in black, it’s certain that being lost in the light will be impossible.

To stand at a place where you cannot be removed requires you to have the knowledge, the skill, and the look of leadership.
RJ and Simon are the leading men in this editorial showing off some not so plain apparel. They teach us that at times, a huge and risky leap doesn’t have to be taken to make a stylish impression. Going with what you know can be a solid choice.
Level37- Know Thyself

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

It’s not all in your head. You truly do set the standard.
We tip our hat off to you because it shows that you do put thought into your ensembles. Simple when brought together, the right balance has been made between detail and cut. Relaxed, but not overly so, neutrals come to life and reach their full potential at being mysterious and functional at the same time. Matching your clothes to your personality is what allows the silent language of style to be heard. And as you surely know, few can speak it.
With all of these things including proper execution in mind, at a point you have to not be so modest and take a rightful bow.
Level37- Who’s cooler than you?
