Brookladelphia’s Department of Public Interest invited six gentlemen to take part in a discussion to about style and fashion. In the social sphere, extremes are often highlighted. On one side of the spectrum, Men of Color are seen peacocking with colorful suits and on the other, they're decked out in the latest streetwear. These styles are a beautiful thing when done right.

This project is aimed at shading in the colors between black and white. Initially, the chat focused on style diversity within the Black experience but developed into an enlightening discussion on what it means to be an American.Read More

Technology is making our world smaller and allowing artistic expression to become much more accessible. This blog is a clear example of that, but social media has put the movement in overdrive.

I had a celebratory red lapel flower and a champagne pin from Pintrill, a local (Brooklyn Based) pin shop. The fireworks at Penn's Landing might be the best fireworks I've seen. The real treat began earlier in the day with my birthday present, a drone!Read More

Hello Brookladelphia! I'm back and for now it'll be through style blogging posts. This weekend I had the wonderful chance to attend a wedding. Over the past year I've averaged a wedding every two months. The most recent one was on the Philadelphia side of Brookladelphia. I had a chance to explore The Ben Franklin Parkway and The Rodin Museum wearing my new three piece suit and my first in at least ten years. I like it and I think I'll have to grab more.
