Urban Prepster :: Banana Republic & Top Shop

As my network broadens (thanks to the blog) I seem to be meeting so many interesting people in my travels. One of which is a songwriter named Pluto. He's definitely a triple threat of sorts since he raps writes and produces music while maintaining a unique style. So when he reached out to me to come to a live show, how could I say no. The challenge however was what to wear to such an event. I played with the idea of something really casual but that just isn't me lol. So in the end, I ended up sticking to my prepster/dandy roots and grabbed the above pieces at Banana Republic. 

(I exchanged the shirt for a skinnier stripe shirt, but a thicker one worked great as well) 

Of course, there will be many shots to come of the event. The outfit above is all Banana Republic and the shoes are from Top Shop.

What do you guys wear to a concert? Who have you seen live lately?

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.
