Including Carl Bowen CEO of Crescendo Tailored Menswear and a name to lookout for in men's clothing, and sartorial savant Damien K. Brown the resident style guy of Lateboots.com

My apologies everyone for the weekend I decided to take an excursion to Atlanta, while here I'm going to take you to some of my favorite shops, restaurants, and nightlife, as well as interviewing some of my favorite authors of style. So take a ride with me and enjoy this taste of ATL. Stick around I think you'll enjoy the trip.

Beyond the piercing eyes, the full lips, and porcelain skin lies beauty...Chanel Iman a object of perfection, and yet still a chill type of girl. After listening to her love for soul food, and her cool calm demeanor how could you not be infatuated...Chanel if you're watching hit me up...we can definitely do M&M's or Rosco's ;)

Recently I've become increasingly amazed at how powerful the mind is...it's crazy to think we only use 10% of our brain's capacity and with all of the advancements in science and technology we still know so very little about the brain and it's function. Which brought me to Stephen Wiltshire from London a gentleman who suffers from "savant syndrome" which is a rare condition in which persons with developmental disorders (including autism spectrum disorders) have one or more areas of expertise, ability or brilliance that are in contrast with the individual's overall limitations. Mr. Wiltshire's remarkable ability seemed to be his photographic memory and rendering skills, so detailed he acquired the name the human camera...check it out.

Arlo Weiner is the son of Matt Weiner is actually 8 years old, but maybe the best dressed young man in America, donning velvet suits, find tailored sports coats, and top hats. While he's inspired by his dad's show "MAD MEN" he also draws inspiration from the likes of Oliver Twist, and Royal Tenenbaums. His looks remain youthful, and exuberant yet still carry a certain sophistication. If he's killing the game at 8 imagine what he'll be doing at 21...

A.L.T 365 is collage of pictures that Talley took over the course of a year it includes pictures of Diana Ross, Tyra Banks, Karl Lagerfeld, and Anna Wintour just to name a few. If a picture says a thousand words these images are writing epics, definitely worth the purchase.

Whether on the streets of Milan, or chillen in Cali, Ms. Morrison is always casually cool. I love that she keeps things simple, not a lot of make up (even at celebrity events) her hair is often in a ponytail or a classic style, and her accessory are subtle and unassuming, yet when it all comes together she demands and holds your attention, it might be because she always has one of my favorite accessories on...a smile...and I must say she wears it quite well...if I had a lady she'd be something like this.

The International Center of Photography has several ongoing fashion photography exhibit for but one that really interested me was the Martin Munkácsi exhibit called Munkacsi's Lost Archive. Munkacsi a Jewish German actually began as a sports photographer in the early 1900's. And while he's most remembered for his fashion photography shooting for Die Dame (a German publication) and Harper's Baazar capturing the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Leslie Howard, Jean Harlow, Joan Crawford, Jane Russell, Louis Armstrong, and Fred Astaire, he also photographed many pivotal moments during World War II including "The Day of Postdam" and Adolf Hitlers most trusted officials. Check him out...
