A Collected Review:


The Brady Chukka by Trask 

Comfort - They fit true to size and they also super comfortable. By the end of the day of breaking them in , I almost forgot I had them on, that’s how great they felt on my feet. Plus they’re super lightweight, not heavy on you.

Durability -  It has a skeletal leather lining and leather sock lining. EVA cushioned insole and cushioned latex outsole sourced from sustainably  harvested trees. So this boot was built to last. 

Style - I really love the look of chukka boot. I would pair these chukkas with just about anything. Whether you’re going for a causal or business look, these will definitely compliment your attire and turn heads. The Brady Chukka also comes in a beautiful navy blue color that I own as well. 

Final Words - Investing in a great pair of boots goes along way. Quality and craftsmanship is key when it comes to building something that not only last long, but also makes you look and feel great. Trask did on great job on these chukkas and if you can get you hands on a pair, get them.

Good Morning World 

Fall officially starts today and I could’t be more excited. I wanted to give you guys a few updates on what you can expect from ACG this season. 

1. Expect to see new style posts next week. I’m hopefully looking to add a 15-30 second video to each style post. I think that would add a nice touch to each post

2. I’m excited to announce I’m working with a DMR Men’s Consignment (Local Thrift Store) Where I’ll be creating a fall/winter 14 look-book showcasing their clothes. 

3. I’ll be starting my Youtube channel. So expect reviews, giveaways, Q & A’s. and a lot more. 

Hope you guys are excited to see what I have in store. 

May Fall bring out the best in you - ACG

8:30 Rant

Be that CHANGE. It’s never too late to be that person you want to be. change the way you eat, change the way you think and change the way you feel about yourself. We have to focus of bettering ourselves and inspiring people around us. We can’t get caught up in other peoples lives or what they think about us. Each and every one of us has a gift, whether that gift is sports, art or helping others. Don’t let that gift die. Nurture it until it’s ready to be used.  It’s time to reach deep inside and let out your dreams out, no matter the situation or circumstance. Don’t WAIT and don’t SETTLE. The time is NOW. Dreams are achieved through  sacrifice, perseverance, positivity, and most importantly time. Act NOW . Dream BIG. appreciate the little things until they turn into big things. I want to say I appreciate every single one of you. You guys inspire me every single day. Thank you for making this blog possibly and for reading my rants lol . BE YOU
