Move on up to the higher end of Sean John

I used to wear a lot of Sean John back in the day in high school. I was a big a fan of Puff Daddy, and loved how he took the idea of buying what the hip hop folks wore on TV for yourself. I know it sounds kind of ridiculous, but I loved every bit of it.  All of the cool kids in high school would always wear SJ!

But once I got to college, I lost my infatuation with the brand, and really even grew a distaste for it. The styles that came out every year got more and more distant from the things that I preferred to wear, and I eventually stopped wearing my favorite hip hop star's line of clothes. Even P. Diddy himself was somebody I started to question why I liked so much...  

Then, I started learning about the other side of Sean John. Aside from the classic T's and the jeans, sunglasses, and track suits (all items that I would only be able to afford when they went on clearance) was a higher end brand of dress shirts and suits that was recognized by an older demographic. I quickly saw that there were two ends of this brand, and one side was more legit than the other. 

Last week, at the Macy's year end suit sale, I came home with two Sean John suits. It felt a bit rewarding for me to think that I've moved on up from the high school stuff, and could now rock the grown man/professional attire designed by Sean John. The design of the suit carries the necessities of everything a suit needs, but has subtle features that keep it young and hip. 

If you used to wear SJ back in the day, and gave up on it's trend towards an extreme urban design -- check out their suits, dress shirts and ties on the other side of Macy's, I think you'll be surprised!

My brother just got a job in the finance industry, so I wanted to take him shopping for some new work clothes -- and this sounds great! Will definitely go to Macy's to take a look. Thanks for the heads up, Angelo! :)
