Sports Roundup – Qin Haiyang smashes world record in the 200m breaststroke in Japan
24 year old ( Qin Haiyang (China’s King of the Pool) sets the 200m world record at 2 minutes, 5.48 seconds. As a former swimmer, it was refreshing to see 2 asian men finish in the top 5 places (#breaking barriers))
The perfect jacket for summer nights:
I came across a jacket from an up-and-coming boutique shop in Seoul. Fresh off a flight from the motherland, I feel proud of the incredible craftsmanship of the threads I came across while shopping.
I’m used to seeing Alo or Lululemon as good, casual fits in the mid-range price; Zegna for the top tier $$$ and miscellaneous streetwear I catch off of Hypebeast.com for casual stylish fits.
But this brand called Thisisneverthat surprised me with the quality of the fabric, the stitching, and the styling – it’s a streetwear jacket that feels like it’s off the rack from a designer’s rack (contrast that with Supreme jackets).
Anyways, here’s the jacket I saw that was really unique… enjoy

I walked into the Alo store in Soho today and picked up a pair of athleisure cargo pants… and it’s fire.
The Espresso color is perfect for anyone with some melanin (I’d like to say I’m olive toned, but blacc’er). A South Asian homie in line said he had three of the same, so it was a done deal – that’s all the persuasion I needed to pull trig on these.
How to rock: You can match these with any basic set of shirts with solid colors and a basic pair of sneakers, namely black for a moody asian guy like me.
