Making Grown Men Cry Since 1992
The fashion bloggers at BurqueStyle have embarked upon an age-old endeavor. You see, there comes a time in every young jerk’s life, when one might want to get the kind of job where clothes matter a little. I’m not talking about life at the Alibi . Most days, we’re just lucky we’re all wearing pants. (To be fair, some staffers dress very nicely here. I’m not one of them.) However, if I were a lawyer defending you in a triple-homicide case, maybe you’d want me to class it up a little. Like with a hat or something. Which brings us to Jersey punk transplant J. He once drove a car through a Home Depot. He hangs around Dumpsters, if the photos on the blog are any indication. Soon, he will be a young professional. So BurqueStyle and local clothing shop Toad Road hooked him up with some ideas. I think it’s actually kinda hard to dress professionally but still feel like yourself if you’re coming from an counterculture background. They did nice work. And J still got a chance to point out that if you’re wearing pants that cost $180, it totally blows if you screw them up somehow. But they fit nice, he says, and feel better than the mass-produced, cookie-cutter $15 jeans dangling from plastic hangers at Walmart. And all the better if you can support local business or avoid child-labor-made goods in the process.BurqueStyle’s got an event happening this weekend, too. Pop Up ABQ is Saturday, 7 p.m., at the Corrales Bistro Brewery. Details here.
