It’s not always easy being a man. In this modern day and age, you have to know how to quickly adapt to situations. To be strong and decisive, yet maintain a certain calmness despite the pressure.
Streetsmart is also the new smart. Being educated isn’t enough, men also need the experience and knowledge necessary to deal with the potential difficulties or dangers of life in an urban environment–as they say “its a jungle out there.”
Last week the Refined Gentleman’s Lounge at The Fort Strip, BGC, transformed into by-invitation-only “Casual Meets Athletic” night for Global footwear brand Skechers as it brings a new Streetwear collection for Men to the Philippines with the help of three personalities who illustrate how the versatile new line fuses casual and athletic shoe styles for fashion and comfort whether at home, in the workplace or at play.
Actor Gerald Anderson, the first ever Filipino ambassador of the brand was joined by Anton del Rosario, 7S Football League founder and footballer; and Ben Wintle, tech entrepreneur and founder of Booky app.
All three have different sets of style rules. Gerald lives and breathes Skechers with as many as six pairs stashed inside his car to match his set of cool, relaxed and comfortable clothes. Anton believes that shoes are what truly make an outfit and goes for a rugged, oversized streetwear aesthetic . Ben keeps his look clean and minimalist in long sleeved shirts, v-necks with joggers where his ideal choice of footwear already matches what’sin his closet.
The common thread? Finding success in their respective fields of entertainment, professional sports, and the tech industry, as well astheir shared ability to balance this with personal interests and fitness, make these three an uncanny fit to represent the newSkechersMen’sStreetwear line, which showcases a style that easily transitions from work to weekend fashion.
