Urban Men's Fashion Flash

The Fashion Bomb doesn't do nearly enough men's style, but it's almost impossible to overlook a recent trend amongst the urban set:
...a bow tied and bespectacled appearance we'll call Pee Wee Herman meets Malcolm X.
Of course it started with our 808's and Heartbreak Style Czar K. West:
Then crept into Common's closet...
And now it seems more and more MC's are trading in their dark shades for the wide rimmed or tortoise shell variety:
As they become older and more accomplished, it seems they're fine with expressing who they truly are:
...men with tons of intelligence who've used a combo of bragadoccio and brains to broker business deals worth millions.
Ladies you gotta admit: isn't there something intriguing about intellect?
Bisous!

It's not just that there is something intriguing about intellect...intellect is, and will always be, the ultimate swagger. I am so happy to see this trend toward an intellectually and aesthetically pleasing wardrobe for the fellas because, let's be honest-it's rather sexy.

Geek chic is not the newest trend. I get it because it's fun and ironic, but I also think it gets old FAST. I think looking intellectual is a little different than looking dorky and anyone who pulls off the former is the real cool guy.

I like a man in glasses. I'm more so attracted to a man who's wearing a pair.
Pharrell can work some tortoise shell eyeglasses because it goes along with his N.E.R.D.'y aesthetic not to mention he looks good in just about anything.

I think the attraction of intellect goes beyond just the look and to the real substance. I'll take intellect over what is trendy any day of the week!
