As the saying goes, "First time for EVERYTHING", right? Well, I am pleased to present at What's More Important Than Fashion FIRST! Today we are pleased to present our very first "Fly Guy of The Moment"! Leading the pack we have Mr. Makal Cross.
Makal is an MBA graduate, and is currently the Marketing Manager with the Marketing/Apparel giant, PAi INC, as well as a hip-hop musical artist. In addition Makal founded and started "SMPLY AWSME" Clothing in 2004, which he is the CEO, and owner...working alongside his business partner, William "ILL WILL" Hopson.
Makal reps my Hometown of St. Louis and we have very close family ties. He is my cousin's cousin, LOL!!!
Check out how Makal explains his personal style:
My personal style is universal. I like to be comfortable, yet also exude confidence, and sophistication.
How often do you change up your style?
I change up my style everyday, LOL! Whatever my responsibility is for that 24/7 day grind, that's what will reflect in my choice of wear.
What are your favorite brands and places to shop?
My favorite brands are Polo, Givenchy, Nike, Jordan, etc...LOL! But my all time favorite is my own clothing brand, SMPLY AWSME. Yes I'm biased, LOL!
My fashion icons range from My Father, who is the epitome of style. Michael Jackson, Nas, Kanye...the world in itself!
What is your favorite fashion accessory?
My favorite accessory is anything that enhances the outfit, pretty simple huh?!
What trend/style do you love?
I tend to stay away from trends(I'm running from that as we speak). Styles that I like are anything that resonates with creativity.
What trend/style do you hate?
Hate is a strong word...I dislike verbs that lack originality, LOL!
What are wardrobe staples that everyone should have in their closet?
Personally speaking as a man, 2 essentials that you should have is a nice tailored suit, and a slick pair of hard bottoms. For women, an immaculate pair of heels.
What is one fashionable item you couldn't live without?
Hmmm...good question! Some nice denims.
If you could raid someone's closet, who's would it be?
You all are trying to have people look at me differently now, lol! Scott from "Keeping Up With The Kardashian's" dresses clean, I tip my hat!
Besides the U.S., where else would you love to go shopping?
Of course...PARIS!!! Duh, LOL!!!
So Dolls, don't you just LOVE the style of our very first "Fly Guy of The Moment"? Makal, brings something fabulous to the table with his sophisticated style. I can truly appreciate when a guy pushes the envelope with his style and dares to be different. Men take notes, you have options beyond jeans, and Jordans! And I agree with you, Scott Disick has fabulous style. I have been inspired by him myself (here).
Makal set the bar high as our FIRST "Fly Guy of The Moment", be sure and show him some LOVE Dolls! And as ALWAYS....
