Well, I had to pass on THE WEEKEND post for personal reasons and to make up for it, I'm replacing that with THE SANDWICH, a mid-week shortlist that does the same function as THE WEEKEND.
Making no sense?
Just read on and enjoy!

Low-top Common Projects @ GQ

Standing out for the right reasons is quite an undermined philosophy. While separating ones self from the rest may require incredible effort, Common Projects saves you from all that crap. For the true statement, walk in these low-top Common Projects. Wear them with those Thom Browne suits, denim-on-denim as GQ's Brian Coats suggests or with everything you could possibly think of. They're simple, stylishly long-lasting and of pure excellent quality. Who said standing out should be tacky and loud?

Tobey Maguire for PRADA Fall 2011 @DesignScene
He may no longer be Spider Man, but Tobey Maguire (who is set to star as Nick Carraway in the remake of The Great Gatsby) is cast as the new hero for PRADA's cool and boxy Fall 2011 collection's campaign. Dark and in signature PRADA mood, Mr. Maguire delivers well and actually makes for the perfect PRADA hero for this collection. Amazing.


Miharayasuhiro Floral Jacket @ Selectism

Surprisingly, it's not a camo jacket. But isn't that what makes it such a beauty? Miharayasuhiro, the Paris Fashion week Japanese designer who's won me over with his poetic clothes, his stunning vision and a style that is far from the usuals I stick to created a jacket reminiscent of those fatigues we all love to wear. They may be flowers, but the effect is masculine and rough, which makes it surprisingly easy to slip into. No idea what to pair this with? Go for a T by Alexander Wang in black, slim-cut camel chinos, and Clarks Originals. Throw in a silver watch and pile up on the Miansai bracelets...They could mistake you for a Street Style hero like Milan V. And that's good.
