Feature :: Fine and Dandy NYC


There is something to be said about a man who can pull off a classic throwback look. One of my favorites to dabble in time and again is the Ivy League side of American Prep. With as many options as there are for a faux-dandy such as myself, I am very selective about where I shop for clothes.

Since I'm generally indecisive (thanks Libra) it's easy for me to fall into the trap of only buying trends and nothing substantial or special. Luckily I stumbled upon this place uptown while visiting a friend. Fine and Dandy offered pretty much everything I could think of. It was definitely a good marriage of affordable and unique (and I do love a unique piece). They're definitely one of the places I'll be keeping my eye on for my next bowtie excursion. Check them out online or in person, it's definitely worth the look :-D.

Perceived Style

My name is Kevin Kamari Foreman but you can call me Kam for short. I am a New York based up and coming designer/stylist. The idea to begin blogging about fashion came about over a glass of wine with a designer friend of mine Kenny M. at the end of 2013. I was showing him some of the looks I had put together for my birthday when he turned to me and said - "you have a good eye... maybe you should try getting into fashion yourself." That's when Perceived Style was born. I have an obsession with classic American prep, bodybuilding, grooming, beauty products, and fashion in general so it was a good fit for me. Before my blogging days I used to be very depressed, very overweight, self conscious, and constantly self-defeating myself. Fashion helped pull me out of that. It taught me to live life, love the skin I'm in, and care about what's on it. So when I was creating the blog it was easy to decide what it would be about. The main focus of Perceived Style is to inspire people to be comfortable in their own skin, to smile more, and to care more about their overall appearance using tips and photos. Job History: I used to work at BFCU in bethpage long island. Now I am the creative directior/CEO for Perceived Style and a freelance menswear designer as of June 2014. Education: I went to Farmingdale College for 2 years then moved to Hofstra for the last 2 years. I presently am taking continuing classing in blogging, fashion writing, and design. Interests: Art, Fashion Shows, Menswear, Shopping, Photography, Womens Fashion, and Food/Movies.
