After relegating casual summer attire to the back seat in my last post, I thought it only fair to offer a reminder of how attractive casual can be. After all, weâ€™re about to head into September, and in much of North America this last month of summer is about as hot as things get. After all, itâ€™s not like shorts are going out of style.

I don’t do a lot of event announcements, but this one seemed worth mentioning, especially considering how much time I’m spending there myself this afternoon. Â The Men’s 24, hosted by KMADD, presents a wide range of some of the best designers for men in SL. Â In addition to new and already-available creations, you’ll also find a bunch of event exclusives, with only 100 at most being sold, and then they’re withdrawn forever.

You recognize them, of course you do, these classics that immortalize skate culture. For context, I could also mention The Endless Summer, given skate cultureâ€™s arguable origins in and ties to surf culture. (Just be glad I didnâ€™t mention Solarbabies or Prayer of the Rollerboys. You think Iâ€™m joking, but Iâ€™m not.) Each of these pillars of cinematic excellence puts its own spin on skater style, acknowledging the influences drawn from punk, surf and beach-city fashions. One could learn a great deal from how Josh Brolin, Christian Slater and Emile Hirsch outfit themselves.
