EveryGuyed x Moxy Creative House Present ‘Treachery of Style’

jordan EveryGuyed x Moxy Creative House Present Treachery of Style

There are certain items that, over time, take on a special significance well beyond that of the material object itself. Taking inspiration from Belgian artist Rene Margritte’s ‘The Treachery of Images’, we had creative director of Moxy Creative House Glenn Michael expand on the notion of representation from not only a visual standpoint, but a cultural one as well.

With items like the bike from E.T., Air Jordans, & Michael Jackson’s rhinestone glove, there’s a deeper significance beyond the sum of their parts; one that, although hard to quantify, remains an undeniable aspect of how we perceive them.

Mo Data: The EveryGuyed Guide to the Stache

Every guy has a reason for growing a ‘stache at some point in his life. Whether it’s to get into a strip club, buy some beer, or just mimic your mustacheo’d boss – letting the old soup-strainer grow out is a time-honored part of a man’s life.

Still, this isn’t the 70′s, and the mustache has become somewhat of a misunderstood facial feature. Does your mustache make you appear more distinguished… or like a registered sex offender?
