Check out Jay-Z‘s look from Saturday Night Live on 5/8/10, aka, the Betty White episode.
Jay had a Malcolm McLaren-esque punk look for his SNL performance, rocking Bess NYC’s Jimmy vest. The vintage style black leather vest is covered in brass studs from the collar to the back, and even the belt.
Bess NYC’s Jimmy Vest: $1,650. Fellas (and ladies),
would you Splurge On It?
Or try to DIY your own?
Celebs continue to feel the studded trend. Just recently, Rihanna was spotted in studded Christian Louboutin sneakers.

Earth Day is all about recycling and sustainability. Italian sneaker company, AliveShoes, does both!
Recycling: Do you ever recycle vintage clothes into art, or something new? They do the opposite. They make brand new kicks, send them to artists to be included in installations, then take the work apart and sell the shoes when the artist is done with them.
Pied a Terre, in Montelago, Italy, by Argentinean designer Sebastiano Mauri, made from 227 pairs of AliveShoes
Beach Blocks by New York artist Steven Siegel, made with 416 pairs of AliveShoes
Sustainability: AliveShoes are made from natural or organic cotton, leather, cork, and biodegradable thermoplastic polyurethane. AND, they are all handmade in Italy.Each sneaker has an id number and a copy of the artist’s original sketch stitched into the tongue.
Special Earth Day shoutout to our friends at Inhabitat, who are celebrating their 5 year anniversary!!!

Ladies, before you go cutting up your boyfriend blazers, check out Poketo’s Recycled Suit Totes – one-of-a-kind bags made from men’s suits.
The bags are handmade by Eco Party Mearry, a South Korean design nonprofit. Even the leather on the straps is recycled – it’s taken from old couches. These eco-friendly totes are totes awesome.
