Fashion between the panels: Avengers Endgame Pt 2

Hello out there, as always it’s good to see you , I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to welcome you to the second half of Fashion between the panels: Avengers Endgame Pt 2. For such a big movie , the blog had to be done in two parts. Hopefully you have had the opportunity to to look at pt 1 of this series, if not , then be sure to do so. Pt 1 ended with capturing the fashionable likeness of all the heroes that were snapped back into existence, ending with the return of T’challa The Black Panther and his sister Shuri.

Picking back up , let’s get started with Scott Lang , The Ant-man. A key player in The Endgame, because of his knowledge of The Quantum Realm. Making it possible for this to happen ,

The return of his heroic partner The Wasp. To capture the fashionable likeness of these two and come up with a fashion forward look or looks , was a small challenge cause you want to capture the right feel for the characters to come with two inspired fashion forward looks.

For the Ant-Man inspired look , I went with more of an athletic feel , to capture the fashionable essence or feel of the suit , Puma makes the perfect sweatsuit to capture that look , I capped the look off in one pic with a luxury watch , then in another a classic Tales to Astonish Ant-Man T-shirt and a true version of the Ant-man helmet to complete the look for editorial purposes. Next to capture the look of The Wasp , I went even more highend lux brand Balmain, for the jumpsuit, keeping the true color pattern of The Wasp’s suit , by adding a yellow blazer and yellow lensed sunglasses. For the other look , I added the authentic Wasp helmet once again for editorial purposes.

Leading, next into the return of Sam Wilson, The Falcon. Another key player in The Endgame, as he was also dusted in Infinity War. He and Cap have been rolling thick as theives in The MCU since his first appearance in Captain America/The Winter Soldier. To capture his look , once again, it’s all about the color scheme. I have actually in the past came up with inspired looks from The Falcon ,

The first look was done a few years back, a little more on the luxury casual side , giving you a more dressy casual vibe , being as though the look was based off ths original comic book look of Sam Wilson. Then I decided to come with an even fresher more new approach to a look that would capture the fashionable likeness of The MCU Falcon /Sam Wilson.

The new look is more highend atheletic. Keeping true to the color scheme, went with a sportswear collabo, of Palm Angels/Under Armour, showing you the look with two different sneakers and topping the look off with a luxury watch and designer sunglasses. It dosen’t stop there though, by the end of the movie we see Captain America pass the mantle to Sam Wilson. If The MCU decides to follow that storyline, this would be the new look of The Falcon.

Hopefully, we will get to see this somtime in the near comic future of The MCU , as for the inspired look , I kept true to the red white and blue colorways, the look was also created a few years ago when Marvel comics first rolled the character out to a very positive fan fair. Like I was saying Sam Wilson is a key player.

Now The Winter Soldier, quickly becoming Sam Wilson’s partner in crime , The Winter Soldier made his return right along side The Falcon or Sam Wilson, im more of a fan of this look for The Winter Soldier or Bucky Barnes . So this is the look that I used for the fashionable inspiration to style a look from.

Keeping true to the Black and Silver that The Winter Soldier has become best known for over the years , the look topped off with a custom leather jacket.

Who could forget that famous line in Infinity War delivered by Dr. Strange ( We are in the Endgame now) , or that moment in Endgame where Strange looked at Stark and held up the one finger for the possible outcome that was going to work.

When you think Dr. Strange , you think vibrant red and blue colors, down to the shirt , for this look the shirt is a crucial part of the look , finishing the look with a sleek ankle boot dress shoe , capturing the coolness of Dr. Strange.

Bringing us to the end of the line , Steve Rogers, or Captain America. Even though they are one and the same , they are still separate but with the same ideals . With that said , here is a look inspired of Steve Rogers.

The look still has almost the Captain America color scheme , but it’s a little on the stylishly conservative side which would fit the persona of Steve Rogers or anyone else with the same style.

Next To Iron Man, there was no one with a bigger part to play in the outcome of Endgame. From wielding Thor’s hammer to do battle with Thanos , or hearing him say the ever famous line AVENGERS ASSEMBLE , or returning from the future as Old Man Cap , to pass on his shield to Sam Wilson.

For the look , it’s just a lot less conservative, than the look of Steve Rogers, also to create both looks , had the authentic Captain America shirt to give you the complete idea . In order to show variety , did the shirt with two different pairs of jeans and blazers. Also showed versatility by changing up the shoes.

Just like that , we have reached the end of The Endgame. I AM JMADDD STYLES , and this has been Fashion between the panels : Avengers Endgame Pt. 2 . That’s it for now, so until the next time…IM GONE !!!!

Fashion between the panels: Avengers Endgame…

Hello out there as always it’s good to see you, I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to welcome you to my latest blog post, Fashion between the panels: Avengers Endgame. For those that are new to my website, Fashion between the panels is when I take a comic book or maybe even a movie and show you how to draw fashionable inspiration from the storyline. Previously I have done the Fashion between the panels segment for the Batman/Hush story arc and Frank Miller’s first Wolverine series. Bringing us to my latest Fashion between the panels segment for the epic ending to well over ten years of Marvel movies and the comic books that were the basis for these movies , bringing us to as Dr. Strange said in Infinity War, We are in the Endgame now. The amazing part is , through out all these books and movies I have been using them as the backdrop for some of my best fashionable inspiration to put together new looks and be displayed on social media and most recently on my new site here. So with that im about to take you through some classic looks inspired by these movies and comics and a host of newly styled looks from this latest epic movie. Once again welcome to Fashion between the panels: Avengers Endgame.

We arive at The Endgame from the previous movie Infinity War, which is based on the story arc from this groundbreaking comic series,

in which at the end of the series the one and only Mad Titan Thanos uses The Gauntlet that wields all the Infinity stones to wipe out a percentage of the human population by simply doing this

the now infamous snap. That’s also where the fashionable inspiration for this blog begins at with The Mad Titan Thanos,

the Look inspired by Thanos blends shades of purple and gold inspired from his appearance and armor to create a one of a kind evening ware look , that would gain the attention of any room someone wearing it stepped into .

The gold and purple play very well off each other to create such a bold yet Fashionably elegant look. Bringing us up to the now long awaited Endgame. Where the story picks up post snap and all the remaining Avengers are trying to regroup and figure out a way to go after Thanos. As well as Tony Stark still in space running out of time needing to find a way to get back to earth before running out of air.

Over the years of movies and comicbooks Tony Stark himself has been a great inspiration for style , through out all the movies always noted for wearing Such nice suits as General Ross said at the end of The Hulk.

True enough Tony Stark was most definitely the more style conscious member of the Avengers, as was said in Civil War, “Tony do you have a suit ?” and his classic reply was , ” sure a lovely Tom Ford three peice.”

I created both these looks sometime ago , which shows you the timelessness of good styling , the looks were created using Tony Stark as the inspiration for both looks. With each look , using timeless peices and classic color schemes that stay on trend.

Not to jump too far ahead or too quickly to the end, but Tony Stark will be always one of the most classic and remembered characters of the MCU for many years to come , specially for the way the character went out , well played. But from this in The End Game ,we see the dawning of two new heroes in the MCU from the pages of the comics.

Straight from her own solo movie , to her introduction to what will be The New Avengers , Captain Marvel came through in the clutch to save Tony Stark before meeting his true fate and getting him back to earth.

In a previous blog I showed how the many faces of Captain Marvel, are and have also been a driving force for creatively styled looks as well, specifically highend streetwear looks.

That also use the color ways of the Captain Marvel suit for the inspiration to create these looks , both looks using dark denim against red to create once again a very timeless look , in both looks the belt being the main center peice of the look. But that was no surprise, or shouldn’t have been anyway, that Captain Marvel would be making her entrance to The Avengers. The suprise hero that we saw amongst others in The End Game, was Pepper Potts , in her own armour known in the comics as Rescue.

Bringing all new style inspiration from Between the panels. Creating newly styled looks of red and gold , making gold the accent color to play up against the base color of the looks , being red.

The first look was created some years ago , it still has an on trend cool factor , but the other three looks are my newly styled looks , being a mixture of casual cool and dressy casual style , giving you an even more highend feel and look that you can almost go anywhere in just about any setting and be stylishly good , capturing the fashionable likeness of Pepper Potts or Rescue.

The is by no means new to The Avengers movies or the MCU in general, this first look was styled a few years ago , still a timless casual look using a mashup of style between comicbooks and highend streetwear completely using The Hulk as the inspiration.

Even though The Hulk is not new to the MCU , the new incarnation of the character for the Endgame story arc was new. For Avengers Endgame, we see the introduction of Professor Hulk as seen above which is the combination of both the intelligence of Bruce Banner and the complete strength of The Hulk all in one. The look is a progression from the first look , still inspired by The Hulk but progressively inspired by Professor Hulk. Still a streetwear look but made to look even more highend and give you the feel of Professor Hulk. Whom pulled off the first snap of the movie to reverse the affects of the damage done by Thanos after The Avengers time traveled to obtain The Infinity Stones to make a new Gauntlet and bring back the heroes affected by the first snap.

In the midst of all this , it brings us up to another new hero being introduced to The MCU , that really isn’t so new , Clint otherwise known as Hawkeye took on a new persona after his family disappeared post snap. He took on the new secret identity of Ronin as was seen in the pages of The New Avengers.

From marksmen to ninja assassin and I have to say the new persona was well presented on the big screen.

Also a fantastic character for fashionable inspiration and one of my newest styling creations that was inspired from both the movies and the comics.

To Put together this look I went with both an athletic sportswear look in the color scheme of the character and a more biker inspired look using a leather jacket to resemble the new suit that Clint wears and using different styles of sneakers to fit the individual looks.

Despite the new persona change , Clint and Natasha still had a close relationship when it came to working together. Both The Black Widow and Ronin were sent the through time and space to retrieve the Sole Stone.

Over The years The Black Widow has taken on various looks from her introduction to the MCU in Iron Man two

making her a major style inspiration through the years ,

this was the first look I styled some years back to capture the fashionable likeness of The Black Widow, it was a gritty highend streetwear vibe and look .

More recently I revisited the look of The Black Widow and made the look more elegant, placing more emphasis on the look of a jumpsuit or catsuit to put you in the mind frame of what Natasha wears when on various missions. Giving you the look with two different ankle boot styles and better jewelry accents. I got to say that im very surprised about the direction the Black Widow went , wasn’t expecting the outcome of that scenario.

The role of Thor in the movie suprised me as well , the movie expanded a little more on the role he played in Ragnorok , showing you a more humorous yet human side of the character. My style inspiration for Thor inspired three looks.

Usually I don’t do black on black, as in a black dress shirt with no contrasting color to go with it , but in this case to capture the fashionable likeness of Thor , it just plain works to create a good menswear look . That makes dark denim more on the dressy side and ends the look with dress Gucci boot, in the previous look , you see the whole concept including the red jacket which helps to break up the triple black. By the end of the movie we see Thor join up with the Guardians of the Galaxy to accompany them on their space missions.

After the snap reversal, it was good to see them return as well as an alternate time line Gamora , still joing The Avengers in the ultimate battle scene against Thanos.

I have never worked with the idea of styling looks inspired from Gamora or Peter Quill aka Star Lord , but for this segment of Fashion between the panels, that’s exactly what im going to do , capture the fashionable likeness of both Gamora and Quill .

Gamora , much like Peter Quill, also gives you rockstar motorcycle fashion vibes , once again to capture a look like this and make it fashionable at the same time the key is to use the right leather peices or items that complement leather well for that authentic rockstar/moto fashion feel.

When developing these looks , I wanted to give you three options. Just to show that the look could be done to cater to your personal style. To do this I gave you the look with two different styles of pants and an optional jacket to change up the look slightly,

as can be seen in both pictures adding the jacket can change the dynamic of the whole look.

When it comes to Peter Quill or Star lord , the style is almost the same or is the same as Gamora’s, it is a variation of the same look , basically it is also moto style.

For Star Lord I gave you three variations of the same look , changing out the pants , T-shirt , boots and glasses to give you a true moto style streetwear look. The Endgame brought back all your favorite MCU heroes in edition to The Guardian’s of the Galaxy.

When you saw Peter Parker get dusted at the end of Infinity War, you were only too happy to see him return for the big battle scene in Endgame.

Over the years I have toyed around with various looks that would capture the fashionable likeness of Spider-Man, the most recent being the last look , but each look hasn’t changed much , maybe a slight color scheme change here or there.

Not only did you see the return of Peter Parker , but you also saw the return of a whole host of key MCU power players , starting with the return of the king of Wakanda, T’challa and his family. The two im going to zero in on is The Black Panther and his sister Shuri .

To capture the fashionable likeness of the Black Panther, I put together four different looks , to give a variety of ways to capture the possible feel and look of the character. Two streetwear looks and two dressy casual looks.

For Shuri’s look , I wanted to put you into a more regal mind frame , a fashionably royal kind of feel , with rich colors such as the black on purple color combination. There it is we have just reached the end of Pt 1 of Fashion between the panels: Avengers Endgame. I AM JMADDD STYLES, be sure to lookout for Pt 2 of Fashion between the panels: Avengers Endgame.

Fashion between the panels: Wolverine series 1,1983

Hello out there, as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES and this is my latest blog post, Fashion between the panels: Wolverine series 1, 1983 . Incase you are not familiar, the Fashion between the panels series, is when I take a comicbook or comicbook series and draw fashionable inspiration from the characters with in the story. Showing you how to style looks inspired by the story. For this new installment of the series im using the first miniseries that was ever done using Wolverine, it’s such an iconic set of comic books, that each cover carries a fairly high value , it also happens to have been the story arc that the second Wolverine movie was based around , give or take a few changes. Despite the fact that this book or books is old as it is , there is still some major fashionable inspiration to be drawn from between the panels.

The story is a real introduction to Wolverine and the very complex character that he is , both inside and out of the suit that he wears. This infact was the first time you ever saw him without the mask and saw his hair was like the mask. So what about the fashion and capturing looks from between the panels?

To start with, here we get a look at Logan’s signature, outdoors mountain man look so to speak , which would later become the signature look for Old Man Logan also.

Capturing this look is not difficult but the art is in giving it a highend feel. First you start with the vintage style bomber jacket , from there brown or beige jeans then a great pair of boots with thermal top to bring the look home. Now we will be actually revisiting this look a little later again.

once we get to another one of the series iconic covers. In book one of this story we are introduced to almost all the characters that are going to set the tone of the story all of which are great for drawing fashionable inspiration from. By the end of book one we are introduced to Lord Shingen and Mariko whom are the basis for the whole series.

We will revisit both of those characters a little later as well but first here is another inspired look , from Wolverine, the inspiration is within the color scheme of of Wolverine’s suit ,this time , went with a combination of Brown , cream and beige to represent the heroes colors. But by the end of book one we are introduced to the assassin Yukio.

Who the next look will be inspired from , her signature white jumpsuit ironically very fashionable in the 80’s and back instyle right now.

Bringing us to iconic book cover number two , where Yukio is fully introduced to the story. Picking up on her fashionable likeness is a bit of a challenge because you want create a look that has a timeless feel , but still has the same style aesthetic as the character.

For this look I went with a classically tailored wide leg pant in white , and a classic white blouse from Carolina Herrera, to capture the true look of the white jumpsuit that she wears. In the same book we are also intrduced to the assassin’s known as The hand ,

also creating another Wolverine inspired look using his color scheme as the inspiration

For both inspired looks I went this time with more of an active wear look , the Wolverine inspired look this time is from the Dapper Dan for Gucci collection and The Hand inspired look , was pulled together from Nike both the track suit and Lebron sneakers.

As I was saying a little earlier , we would revisit this signature Logan , outdoors mountainous look. The third book in the series gives you a really great depiction of it , and as I was also saying before, the look would later become the signature look of Old Man Logan. I have actually captured and recreated this look several times here is another adaptation of the look done by myself.

In the third book of the series, we see a lot more of Logan’s signature streetwear look , we also get an even better look at Yukio , and another of her signature looks.

That look being dressed in all black, in a jumpsuit or catsuit. To capture this look , I wanted to get as close as possible so for the same affect, I went with once again the tailored dress pant and keyhole top also the mule slip on , truly capturing the look on an upscale level.

Ok so we have reached book four in this classic epic series by the one and only Frank Miller. Here we are once again reacquainted with Shingen who is Logan’s nemesis in this story arc. But take note of the fashion , Shingen is wearing one of my favorite dressy items. What’s that you may ask? The white suit , when worn and styled correctly , always a great statement peice.

When capturing this look or putting together a look such as this, I prefer a more cream color over white , if it’s going to be completely white then it looks better made of linen. To complement the look a buckle half boot in a rustic brown color , finishing the look with a samurai pocket square, staying true to theme , and a bold print spread collar dress shirt.

In book four Logan regroups to go back after Shingen, this time more ready and prepared to face Shingen in one final battle to defend Mariko’s honor from book one.

Here is the Fashion between the panels, another inspired look from Wolverine’s color scheme , a two toned chocolate brown tailored suit look complete with cap toes shoe and Tom Ford dress shirt.

This time when Logan catches up with Shingen, he is better equipped and ready for what he is about to face in his final battle with Shingen.

Notice in true fashionable fashion , Shingen proceeds to battle in his white suit , but as you can see this time Logan is more prepared than Shingen and due to his underestimation, Wolverine comes off victorious, in defending Mariko’s honor.

Also , here is one last look styled and inspired by Wolverine’s color scheme, once again giving you a more dressy approach and appeal , using three shades of brown , showing you the inspiration behind the look. Well there it is , just like that we have come to the end of yet another blog post. I AM JMADDD STYLES , and this has been Fashion between the panels : Wolverine series 1, 1983. That’s it for now , so until the next time….IM GONE !!!

Fashion between the panels : Batman Hush…

Hello everyone out there , as always it’s good to see you. Welcome to my latest blog post : Fashion between the panels : Batman/Hush. That’s right for this new blog post , im taking you to Gotham City. Incase you didn’t know , I am as much of a comic head as I am a fashion head and sometimes I infuse the two interest for the ultimate comic/fashion head mashup. I often find fashionable inspiration in the pages of my favorite comicbooks, then creating new looks based on the characters. The latest story arc that has captured my attention, came out a little while ago , and is soon to have a full length cartoon movie. The story in question is Batman Hush.

This epic Batman tale includes some of the most interesting heroes and villains that Batman has to offer ,

all being used to pull off one epic tail and plot in Gotham City , so what I am going to do is create new fashionable looks based around the various characters found in this story , and the first character that we will start with is Robin.

Batman’s assistant and ward, the Robin in this story is a third generation Robin , basically the third Robin in the Batman story arc , in this case that would be Tim Drake.

To capture the look or fashionable likeness of Robin , you want to create a cleverly done streetwear look , playing up the colors of the costume he wears and using that to capture the feel and fashionable flava that Robin would have if he walked past you in the street. The next character that we are going to take a look at from the story is

The Huntress , now once again in creating a fashionable look to capture the likeness and feel of The Huntress , I had to float between a highend look with a sexy street feel appeal.

Working with a color scheme that goes very well together and that will capture the eye , with that being said. The color scheme is black and purple.

Then there was Superman , for this comicbook series Kal-el plays a very pivotal role , infact the book that has him on the cover is one of the more expensive to get your hands on. But how can his fashionable likeness be captured ?

To capture the fashionable likeness of Superman for this story , I went with more of a casual Friday , A more grown up luxury streetwear look , where the look keeps once again and always true to the feel of Superman, with a running theme of the color palette to capture the classic look , keeping it red and blue.

In this story, it really expands on the complicated, love hate then really love again relationship that is Batman and Catwoman , setting the theme for many more great and interesting storylines to come in the near future,

but when it comes to capturing the fashionable likeness of Catwoman, you want to keep the look sleek and trendy , a little monochromatic even.

The best way to do that was by you guessed it , using a catsuit and in this case a leather suit in black with accessories of the same color. I only separated the look with a contrasting color shoe and gloves.

Intro Nightwing , this storyline has every major Batman villain or hero in it that is one of the factors of why this is such a great story and why there is a full length feature film coming , so capturing Nightwing’s fashionable likeness ?

When you look at Nightwing, what comes to mind is the martial arts suit that was worn in the movie Kill Bill or even further back, the classic Bruce Lee martial arts suit.

The best way to capture this look is by taking it back to a classic streetwear look , that has been relaunched and reintroduced for right now , but with a more tailored fit , that would be the Puma track suit.

It gives you the look and feel of the suit that Nightwing currently wears and is most known for.

Poison Ivey , as it is always said no one can resist the power and influence of Poison Ivey and her mind control, this was really shown in this story arc when she gained control over Superman , but what about capturing her fashionable likeness ?

In order to do this you have to make use of floral prints and various shades of green to contrast with the the floral prints, you even want the jewelry accents to highlight the floral prints.

The Joker and Harley Quinn, almost no Batman story arc is complete without these two some how being woven into the plot , and this story did not fall short of The Joker or Harley.

There are so many different ways that Harley has been captured in the comicbooks , but one thing always remains consistent with her and that’s the black and red color scheme she always has.

This particular version of Harley gives you more of a rockstar style , but still has the common theme of black and red which what I used to capture what would be her fashionable likeness.

When it comes to capturing the fashionable likeness of The Joker , it’s all about the details , you have to look closely to realize that if The Joker did exist although crazy , he actually has a sense of fashion.

From his use of purple and green to the suit that he is wearing, and there are so many different ways to capture his look ,

as long as you maintain true to the color scheme , in this case The look is a little more on the side of what I call sneaker casual, where you combine a dressy casual look and finish it with sneakers.

Then for this look , im giving you true full on Joker , a more dressed up feel appeal , that is still keeping within the color theme of The Jokers look.

There are so many favorite characters in this storyline, that are intertwined with the this arc , I guess that’s why it took so many books to finish this Batman saga ,

and just when you think it’s almost over there’s more. When you look at The Riddler, his color schemes are very similar to The Joker , especially when he’s wearing the green suit , and not the onsie you would see yrs ago. Basically capturing his look is also very close to creating The Joker look.

As in the color scheme is pretty much the same as well as the tailored suit,

in this case, to capture the look , I went with a two button single breasted lightweight green suit , with a white waist coat and pastel tie. Most definitely a spring/summer look, and brought the look together with a pastel pocket square, it’s probably one of my favorite looks that I’ve put together.

Then there is the villain that is the basis for this whole story , the one that makes this series of books , such a collector’s item , it’s also his first appearance. The one that I am speaking of is Hush.

Capturing his look would be or is pretty interesting, the look would have to be dressy casual with a mixture of streetwear and a dressier style at the same time.

Probably over the yrs , easily one of Batman’s most formidable opponents and most definitely one of the best storylines worthy of a movie.

For this look once again, I didn’t change it much , I just added a different grade of trench coat to define the look more , capturing the fashionable likeness of Hush.

We have finally reached The Batman , probably through the years one of the greatest superheroes whom just happens to be human has no super powers ,and much like in this story finds a way to come out on top , as for capturing his fashionable likeness, well lets see.

When it comes to creating a fashionable likeness for Batman, you can go one of two ways , you can capture a streetwear look as above that gives you the look and feel of The Dark knight, or you can capture a look that fits his disguise Bruce Wayne.

This look would be a more distinguished, dressier look that would seperate the two personalities,

From the crime fighter to the billionaire socialite. Basically giving you versatility of style, as can be seen in the formal wear look , that I put together above. Giving you both The Batman and his alter ego Bruce Wayne.

Just like that , we have reached the end of another blog post. This has been Fashion between the panels, and I AM JMADDD STYLES. That’s it for now, so until the next time… IM GONE…!!!

The perfect dress shirt : ( Axxess )…

Hello everyone out there , as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to welcome you to my latest blog post , The perfect dress shirt ( Axxess ) . Im not gone hold you to long with this Fashionable Moment , but I just wanted to come through for a quick minute to put you up on game. Dress shirt game that is . Now when it comes to selecting a good dress shirt , there’s plenty of brands to choose from.

Amongst my favorites are these , English Laundry , Thomas Pink , Suit Supply and Bugatchi. All well made great fitting shirts that can bring the best out of a good suit. But none of these in my personal or professionally fashionable opinion are the perfect shirt. First and foremost you have to understand what makes a perfect dress shirt. Most important out of anything is the quality, you cannot go cheap on a good shirt , a cheap shirt will lessen the look of your suit , next is fit , material make , and the collar. Now all of the fore mentioned shirts are pretty good in these various categories. However there is a brand out there that is not just good in all these categories but down right EXCELLENT. The brand that I am referring to is Axxess ,

The Axxess dress shirt is the ultimate when it comes to first fit , never to snug or tight but just right giving you that high quality Italian design and feel , basically it’s as comfortable as it is high in style.

Next the Boldness of the Axxess dress shirt is like none other , each shirt has it’s own individual style and bold print that stands out , now I don’t know about you , but I like my shirt to be a statement piece with my suit , not just a plain shirt that is the standard and even the plain white shirt stands out because of how it’s made. Even you like to go plain , it’s still not like the standard.

Bringing us to the Make of the shirt , high quality cottons are used for each shirt , so it breathes well , and moves with you without feeling stiff or uptight. Then there is what is probably the most important part or parts , the collar and the sleeve cuffs.

The collar is always an important detail , perhaps the most important. You always want a strong high standing collar that dosen’t get mashed or lost in the suit collar and lapels. This is especially important when going without a tie because the shirt will still look great and stand out when you want to wear your suit in different ways. Then there is the shirt cuffs ,

With or without cuff links you want your shirt cuffs to be the perfect length coming from your suit jacket , so the detailing of the shirt can be seen even on the shirt sleeve , and the Axxess dress shirt gives you all these components, making it what I call the perfect dress shirt ,

as you can see on me here where I am displaying both an Axxess dress shirt and a Suit Supply Suit , or in the picture above that where im wearing the Axxess dress shirt a little more on the dressy casual side , showing you the versatility of the shirt with or without a tie. So there it is , I told you I didn’t want to hold you to long with this one , I just wanted to come through and put you up on Fashionable game right quick. With that said we have just reached the end of yet another blog post. I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been The perfect dress shirt ( Axxess). That’s it for now , so until the next time IM GONE !!!

Captain Marvel Style Inspiration.

Hello out there True believers , as always it’s good to see you. For those that may not know , I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to welcome you to my latest blog post Captain Marvel Style Inspiration. As I often say Fashionable Inspiration is everywhere even in the pages of your favorite comic’s. By now many of you have already seen the movie Captain Marvel and my true comic heads out there were already familiar with Carol Danvers , before the movie. You also may know that I tend to draw fashionable inspiration from many of the characters that come from the pages of Marvel or DC comics. If you haven’t already guessed it , today I am going to show you how the many faces of Captain Marvel

are an inspiration for Fashion Forward Looks. With out a doubt Captain Marvel is one of the strongest and most powerful in the Marvel Universe, but over the years , she has taken on my different appearances and style changes , as you can see in the picture above , so you ready ? Let’s get started.

This particular look of Captain Marvel is her current look , after she went from being Ms. Marvel and took up the mantle and full power of Captain Marvel ,now when building a look from this current incarnation of Carol Danvers I used the color scheme and detailing in her suit.

Both looks as I was saying before are a play on the color scheme and detailing of the suit that she wears. In both looks , I used dark denim with red accents, in style one I used a jumpsuit with leather jacket and a tie up leather belt , to capture the look of the sash that she wears around her waist, in the second look I used a gold necklace to capture the gold star which is the center piece of the suit.

Next up I wanted to capture her look as Ms. Marvel, before she became Captain Marvel. Now if you look at this version of the character it’s actually pretty fashionable so far as a comic character goes , but let’s see how I captured this look.

When you look at Ms. Marvel , she’s basically wearing a onesie fashionably sexy but not practical for everyday style unless your on stage and your name is Beyonce or Nicki Minaj. So to capture the look , I went with leather shorts and a leather tank to capture the looke of the onesie, a trendy knee high boot to capture the look of her signature boots , and a red tie up belt to capture her signature sash. To finish off the look I used a gold lightning bolt necklace for her gold bolt on her chest , capturing the full look of Ms. Marvel.

Then there is the original adaptation of Ms. Marvel from the early 70’s late 60’s , in order to capture this look , you have to come up with a luxury streetwear kind of style to capture the mod look of the character.

In this case the look was captured by using a red a body suit , paired with dark denim shorts , take notice of the necklace that is exactly like the star burst on on Captain Marvel’s suit. Most remarkable though is how her boots drawn years ago resemble the new trendy sock sneaker that so many designers are doing now.

Now here is a little extra added bonus for all my True believers or major comic heads , the other adaptation of Captain Marvel , Carol Danvers best friend Maria Rambeau’s daughter Monica Rambeau. If you payed close attention to the movie, both characters were in the story. Let’s see how the look of Monica Rambeau can be captured.

When you look at it , the newer more recent adaptation of Monica Rambeau has a very cool look , so from this a very functional fashion forward look can be done to capture this hero’s fashionable likeness, from the trench to the leather pants down to the ankle boots, with the bodysuit to just plain seal the fashionable deal.

Then there is Mar-vell , the original Captain Marvel. In the movie they changed this character, probably for MCU continuity purposes, but here is where the mantle of Captain Marvel started, for all my true comic heads and True Believers. Now let’s capture a fashionable likeness of the original Captain Marvel.

Once again for this look , the styling is inspired by the color scheme of The Captain Marvel suit , but to completely shut the look down , take notice of the limited edition Captain Marvel watch, that alone completes the look perfectly, and just like that we have just reached the end of yet another blog post , closing out this mini comic / fashion history of the many Fashionable Faces of Captain Marvel. I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been Captain Marvel Style Inspiration. That’s it for now so until the next time IM GONE…!!! and EXCELSIOR.

Then there was Suitsupply

Hello everyone out there as always, it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to welcome you to my latest blog post , Then there was Suitsupply. I have been talking about Suitsupply for some time now , since the first time that I ever herd of it in the pages of Sportswear International magazine, some time ago , before this phenomenal chain hit the states.

But when I finally had the chance and opportunity to have what I call The Suitsupply experience, I could not wait to see if the new menswear store could and would live up to the hype that was written about it.

Well when the store opened in Washington D.c. , I did just that , and what I discovered was that it’s not just about finding a great suit when it comes to Suitsupply , but it’s a major retail experience, infact it’s by far one of the best if not the best retail experiences I’ve ever had next to shopping at Nordstrom ,

especially when it comes to menswear , because at this day and time you don’t always find great places that have menswear that doesn’t fall underneath the disposable fashion , horrible fit and low quality, specifically when it comes to finding a men’s suit that will stand the test of time.

From the moment you step in and one of the sales people approaches you , instantly you want to walk out with a suit or at least try one on for future reference, also do yourself a favor and check out the custom made to measure service as well. When it comes down to it , so far as an off the rack suit goes , in my fashionable opinion it gets no better,

so far as quality fit , and little details such as the functioning buttons on the suit sleeve, known as a surgeon’s cuff , for this suit I went with a single breasted two buttoned look , the fit is so on point that it looks as if it was made for me.

I was so pleased the first time around, that the next time that I returned to the Georgetown store in Washington D.c. , I came back looking for a classic look , in the form of the all wool double breasted grey pinstripe. The moment that this suit went on , I knew I could not leave it behind, as I was saying before it’s hard to walk into the showroom and walk out with nothing, once again the fit was impeccable and the in house tailoring was exceptional.

If you take a closer look at the picture above where I have the grey suit on , you will see a wall of accessories, full of ties and on the other side you see the wall o f shirts as pictured above , then they keep an assortment of pocket squares in the drawers on the floor.

When I went back for the double breasted suit , I decided to pick up two wool winter ties and pocket square as well to complete the look of the suit with accessories of the same material and weight , and all that is just from two very enjoyable visits to the Georgetown store.

One thing that Suitsupply realizes is the better the experience, the more likely a consumer is to buy and give you the return business, and that is especially from a visual standpoint as you can clearly see from these pictures of the Soho NY store , the next one that I’m planning to pay a visit to shortly in the near future.

Basically if you haven’t been to Suitsupply yet , then you are truly missing out on a great menswear retail experience, so I recommend that you get to one soon and see what I mean , if not shop the looks online at ( ) guaranteed you won’t be disappointed. There it is , once again we have reached the end of yet another blog post. I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been Then there was Suitsupply. That’s it for now, so until the next time…IM GONE…!!!
