KRAVINGS: The Game 2011


 

So many of us have been not so patiently anticipating the return of one of our favorite sitcoms, The Game.

Tonight on BET we get what we’ve been waiting for. Will we be satisfied? Overwhelmed? Underwhelmed? Let us know your thoughts! We’re a bit partial because we LOVE the show and two of its stars (Pooch Hall and Hosea Chanchez) have graced the cover of KRAVE Magazine, but we will try to provide our objective view of the show.

Enjoy! We’ll be back after the show.

ASOS: The classic “black” blazer reworked


So I’m always shocked to hear that men and women a like have never purchased from ASOS.com OR, however tragic, have not HEARD of ASOS.com. WOW!

ASOS.com has long been the UK’s largest online fashion and beauty store, established in 2000 by Nick Robertson and for the last ten years has been a staple for fashionistas worldwide. I myself have been purchasing from Asos.com for the last two years, rarely sharing my secret sartorial pleasure with my peers. Alas, ASOS.com is becoming more and more popular to US shoppers and now has a site dedicated to US customers.

With the blessing from ASOS.com, KRAVE Magazine will now start to feature branded ASOS.com features on our blog and printed issues, showcasing the fantastic fashion you can get from the online retailer.

And now…for our very FIRST ASOS.com Branded post:

REWORKING THE ‘BLACK’ BLAZER!

ASOS Slim Fit Studded Shawl Collar Blazer $189.64

Rock it out…literally.Studs and spikes have been adorning designer brands for the past few seasons.  Keep it masculine and sleek with black stud detail that doesn’t overwhelm the garment. Dress it up or down.

ASOS Slim Fit Zip Detail Blazer $206.88

It’s all in the details! And the minimal detailing creates a classic impact. Give the basic black an edge…with zipper edge detailing. Definitely not your typical dinner jacket but definitely for the sartorialist who wants to tip the scales, occasionally. :-)


 

ASOS Slim Fit Panel Navy Blazer $146.54

Collaborate. Don’t be afraid to have an affair with navy. It’s still a deep rich hue and why not marry it WITH black? Classic + contemporary = your unique expression of style.

 

Stay tuned for more of the amazing articles and accessories you can get from ASOS.com. If you like what you see here, click on the photos and you will be directed to the website for more information about the garment and instructions to purchase.

Soul Food: Nourishment – Integrity


KRAVE Integrity

Here at KRAVE, we are renowned for being the go to fashion guide for today’s Man. After 5 years, we remain the only fashion lifestyle and entertainment magazine for all men of color.

What you may not know is that KRAVE equally embodies a set of core values that keep us looking as good on the inside as we endeavor to look on the outside. It’s been often said, “Clothes make the man.” There is truth in that statement. Certainly, what we wear makes a tremendous difference in how we are seen and judged by others, but what DEFINES a man cannot usually be captured in a photograph or measured by a tailor.

——————————-

I’m not what most would consider a style or fashion guru, but I have been given the distinct pleasure of helping wardrobe your personality, enhance the look of your attitude, and challenge your way of thinking.

With that said, allow me to share a secret with you… I know something that looks good on EVERYONE! It’s sure to get you noticed and you will certainly stand out. It’s something every man should have but it doesn’t come cheap.

It goes well with denim, and still looks great with a blazer. Dress it up or down… it even goes great with a hat. African, Asian, bald, tall, overweight, or muscle head, this is definitely a “one size fits all.”

To be without it would be like having a bright and beautiful smile and terrible breath; or having on the finest linen suit, in the summer, and not wearing deodorant.

It’s Integrity.

Integrity is adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.

Being known for your sense of style and swag can open many doors and provide you with access to many places  Your integrity is what will help you stay there long enough to take advantage of those opportunities. Our pants and socks shouldn’t be the only things that match. Our words and actions should be consistent with what we hold as personal convictions and values.

Integrity…how does it look on you?

- Anthony Roberts

Sunday Sound Selection: JoJo MixTape


JoJo has definitely grown up, in both image and sound. I’ve had this mixtape for a while now but thanks to my dear friend Shatani Chouteau, I finally listened to it in entirety.

The true indication of her growth is the track “I Need A Man”, where JoJo comes out the game wailing with intense declaration that she needs a man and not a boy! Alright!

I will be jamming this for a few days!!! Check it out!

From the site: Download JoJo’s mixtape “Can’t Take That Away From Me” for free. The 11-track offering features the single “In the Dark” plus contributions from Chad Hugo of The Neptunes, Kenna, Neff-U, Oak, Beau Dozier, Jordan Gatsby, Travis Garland, and more.

Download the mixtape HERE for free. Enjoy!
