“I think style has to do with the ways of which you’re able to orient your critical intelligence, your spirituality, and your character…”

I’ve been holding on to this interview for a while, but better late then never right? Back in May, Cornel West sat down with Prepdemic Magazine to provide some insight on style and his sartorial influences.

Warning: The camera work is kind of wild on some of these videos.. you might have to look away a few times like I did lol.

What is Style?

Cornel West also discusses the relationship between clothing and style, why he has a uniform, and a piece by piece breakdown of what he is wearing. For the rest of the interview, click “Read more..”.

Street Etiquette presents The Black Ivy

This is my first post dedicated to fashion and expect more from The Truth Renaissance soon. The gentleman at Street Etiquette recently teamed up with Unabashedly Prep to bring you The Black Ivy. Here is an excerpt about the project:

The Black Ivy serves as a tribute to the first black colleges that paved the way for our generation and created a common ground for hardworking, likeminded individuals. What the original Black Ivy league did for folks many years ago is what we strive to do today with individuals that inspire, motivate and spark the creativity of  beings around them.

As a graduate of Morehouse and a lover of fashion (particularly vintage clothing), I can appreciate what these young men represent and bring to the table with this project.
