Ever since returning back from Coachella, we’ve seen tons of guys adapting to a more casual way of dress, wearing tees and sweatshirts with colorful graphics and playful quotes. This item, which was found via designer Wasted Heroes (based out of Liverpool), is something we could really get behind. Plus, everything seems a little more polished en Francias. Non?
If you want to snag one of these sweatshirts on eBay, enter “Wasted Heroes + Sweatshirt” into your eBay Feed to alert you if any become available.

The Kenzo Sweatshirt… Still Here
Last Fashion Week, we mentioned the coveted item of the moment was the emerald green Kenzo sweatshirt. This past New York Fashion Week, thanks to the folks at what-do-i-wear, we couldn’t help fall inlove with the designers same sweater in pure white. We call it “the blizzard” Kenzo.

The Festive Sweater
"My new festive sweater straight from Hong Kong" writes Molly Windman (aka mememolly) on her Tumblr page. “Thanks, eBay!” Well, thank you for pointing out the awesome inspiration just before the holidays. I must admit, I’m highly entertained with the Christmas sweater selection found in the eBay closet. From snowmen to polar bears — the wackier, the better. There is a tamer selection listed under “Festive Sweaters" (some with snowflakes only), but the point of the matter is to go nuts and have fun. Go big or go home!
The New Boy
By Jenny Bahn
Naomi Sims is often credited as being the first African American supermodel. No matter what her title — the girl has style. There are plenty of old school street style shots of her sashaying down the streets of New York City, sporting a host of relaxed, boyish outfits. Her look has withstood the test of time, proving that class is always classic. We’ve taken her look and added a few twists, vamping it up a bit for more modern times.
The Kenzo Tiger Sweater
Very rarely do we see the same outfit blogged multiple times on street photo websites, but this punch of a green sweater got lots of love this week, including Vogue.com and What Do I Wear. Upon closer inspection, I noticed the sweater is officially sold out, making it all the more covetable an item. Fear not…so far, there are 3 listings currently on eBay for this bad boy, although you can always set your “watch list” for this gem.
