NFL’s Rodney McLeod & Malcom Jenkins Present Bespoke Men’s Club for ESPYs Week

      

With every award show in L.A., there’s bound to be a plethora of events celebrating the socialites and celebs in town for the festivities. ESPY Week is no exception as the elite stars of sports are honored in their own way through an exciting ceremony that highlights these star athletes’ achievements.

Kicking off ESPY week, The Bespoke Men’s Club was hosted by current Super Bowl Champions of the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod. Both Jenkins and McLeod brought their off the field passions into full effect as owners of their own individual fashion boutiques Damari Saville (Jenkins) and Back of House (McLeod) with their ESPY week pop-up event. After winning a Super Bowl together, the duo thought it would be great to partner for a successful collaboration, just off the field this time with The Bespoke Men’s Club!

The Bespoke experience consisted of a gifting suite in Downtown LA’s Fashion District on Monday, July 16th & Tuesday, July 17th. Bespoke was curated to provide the best in clothing, electronics, and grooming in one Men’s Club experience and the event was just that! Each guest received a Talley & Twine luxury watch as they entered the lounge to commence the experience. Just past the shopping experience, guests were offered complimentary haircuts and grooming services on behalf of Luster’s S-Curl and The Mane Choice. While receiving grooming services, guests were able to get a sneak preview of The Equalizer 2 from Sony Pictures which is set to release on July 20th, 2018.

Vibes were set by a live DJ, artwork by Erik the Artist, passed bites and delicious cocktails crafted by Teeling Whiskey and ROAR Organic. The two-day event was all possible because of the support of brands ProJewelerClean ShowroomTodd PatrickGordon CrushPacks SupplyAinsley & TroupeGifted ApparelEsquire Men’s Grooming,FairplayJabra HeadphonesHard SodaMr13195 and Taylordblu.

Brunch With MOBS @ Platform LA’s Hayden

Brunch With MOBS @ Platform LA’s Hayden

Photos / Story Contributions by Anthony C. Stafford & Joshua Pinkay

This Wednesday, MOBS Design was the extraordinary host of a spectacular brunch at Platform’s one and only Hayden restaurant. It was the perfect day and perfect way to welcome the shoe brand’s bright new colors, and latest design, The Grid. Culver City’s cool breeze coupled with the famous SoCal sun to create a bright, fun, music-filled brunch time party.

A line of numerous shoe styles and summer colors lined Hayden’s outdoor dining area, and shone brightly (but not overbearingly) in the sun. In fact, the pinks, blues, and other subtle hues are elegant and befitting to the season. As we begin to embrace the warmth of late Spring, and early Summer, it becomes apparent that MOBS are a staple for the shoe connoisseur: extremely comfortable, light-weight, and a magnet for the eyes. It’s a welcome change to the footwear landscape.

MOBS’ entire team, along with event organizers, wore their favorite pairs of the shoe company’s stylish designs, and spoke eloquently of their mission, creative and design processes, and what’s to come in the company’s future.

Here’s what MOBS’ designer, Bryon Schroeder, had to say about his goals, the company’s competition, and what he wants customers to expect when they purchase a pair of shoes:

“My goal is to offer people a decent pair of shoes that blends elements of the athletic world with my own sense of fashion. I see a lot of footwear brands today that don’t particularly do that. That’s what we want MOBS to accomplish by bringing the best of both worlds to footwear. Ultimately, I just want people to enjoy our products. We’ve been working really hard with this concept and I’m so happy to be able to bring this brand to life in Los Angeles.”

MOBS’ Managing Director, Tony Ramo, added:

“It’s very hard launching a new brand when the landscape and market has changed so much over the years. It’s really nice to get support from various media outlets on what we feel is a truly amazing product.”

MOBS Design brings to the table what many footwear brands have long forgotten or done away with — unique colors, high-quality materials and undeniable comfort — so it’s refreshing to see the company tackle and defeat the obstacles that get in the way of some of their goals. Even more, it’s reassuring to find a brand of shoes that can bring many miles of durability to the feet of consumers in an extremely versatile and stylish way.

MOBS Brings in Father’s Day with a New Shoe Style

MOBS Brings in Father’s Day with a New Shoe Style

Father’s Day is right around the corner, and instead of brainstorming the many ways to make dad feel appreciated, families can look to MOBS Footwear. MOBS is delivering a brand new style, sure to impress people everywhere. This new look, named Grid is perfect for the busy ‘cool dads’ who jump from meetings in the office, to their kids’ soccer practice right after.

The Grid set’s stretch knit upper maximizes breathability, and a nested elastic and leather mid-foot strap provides support and stability while maintaining a clean minimal aesthetic. The sleek “Grid” EVA midsole delivers lightweight cushioning, and the rubber outsole assures both flexibility and traction. Easy to slip on and available in two different color-ways — it works for all dads alike! The new Grid style maintains MOBS’ signature mobility and comfort, yet introduces a new type of versatility that is appropriate for a quick round on the golf course, business meetings, travel, walks at the park, or just getting a drink at the bar.

Visit https://mobsdesign.com/ to get the “dadpreneur” in your life a stylish and functional set of shoes that will keep him moving from business to casual without skipping a beat!

The Passionate Collector Makes Holiday Shopping a Breeze

The Passionate Collector is ready for all your last-minute holiday shopping needs at their retail store located in Newport Beach or online at www.thepassionatecollector.com.

Having a passion for fashion and accessories, owner Susan Shieldkret of the Passionate Collector, combined these with her love of travel, as well as a love for helping others look and feel their best. With a great selection of products, wonderful designs and reasonable prices, The Passionate Collector features over 50 designers from all over the world.

“We are like a tiny department store. We can cover your shopping needs, from really fun socks, unique umbrellas, alpaca slippers, and handmade scarves, to beautiful jewelry”, said Susan Shieldkret, the owner of The Passionate Collector in Newport Beach.

With Christmas right around the corner, people are looking for those last-minute gift ideas for that “hard to buy” for person, the friend who has everything, and even that special friend who is unique and original. The Passionate Collector has something for everyone, including gifts for mom or dad, that special someone in your life, your boss, the techie, travel lovers, or even yourself.

Here Are Some Nifty Items We Picked Out Just for Their Uniqueness and Functionality:

If you can’t go anywhere without your computer, check out the Canadian bags that wear like iron. Not only are these durable but they are also water and dust repellent, high-density, and scratch and stain resistant. This bag also touts versatility, with the convenience of being able to throw it over your back or carry it like a brief case. The choice is yours, and it protects everything!

For those travel lovers, this “smart” luggage has a battery pack that will weigh itself and charge your smart phone, computer, and other devices. That’s pretty cool indeed. It also has a GPS-type locator just in case it ever gets lost. It’s TSA approved, comes in small or large, and has a variety of colors to choose from.

For fun – The Passionate Collector has pink (or white) Furry Alpaca Slippers, and they feel so soft, your feet will fall in love! The fur is long and moves with each step – pretty!

How about something for that mechanical guy? The Padron Watch lets you peer through the watch backing and see the speed of the movement. It’s seriously fascinating.

Inspirational quotes with Graffiti Word Art Leggings give you enough motivation to get out of bed and get your workout going. It’s the perfect gift for your favorite yoga or workout enthusiast. They come as 100% silk scarves too!

Detailed, exquisite Hand Made Umbrellas make a statement wherever you go, and they’re more than just protecting you from getting wet. Detailed with beautiful colors and unique handles, no two are alike!

There are so many more exclusive gifts at The Passionate Collector, it’s no wonder. The name says it all. Stay connected to them on Facebook and Instagram at @thepassionatecollector; and Twitter at @TPC_Jewelry.
