Despite the fact that the 2014 World Cup has come to a close, World Cup fever is still very much alive. In addition to taking home the official World Cup trophy, each player of Germany's winning team received a special edition gift from Dr. Dre, who collaborated with Naomi Campbell to create the 24 karat gold headphones.
In a commemorative gift along with the headphones, Beats by Dre released a Naomi Campbell portrait, with the supermodel looking every bit the trophy dressed by Tom Ford and Christian Louboutin, shot by the legendary British fashion photographer, Rankin.
Campbell notes: “Working on the Golden project with Beats by Dr. Dre was so much fun” and for the model and avid soccer fan, “The shoot was loud and energetic…I even got to practice my football skills! The Golden project is the perfect way to celebrate the German victory and I’m glad to be a part of this campaign.”

Get ready to amp up, Samsung Level is launching with GILT. For 72 hours, GILT will exclusively be carrying the range of Samsung Level audio products before hitting the shelves of major retailers.
In the battle for supremacy, Samsung has just launched its first range of headphones in North America. Simple, minimalistic, modern, and reminiscent to clean Scandinavian designs, Level incorporates the best of both worlds with crisp and clear audio reverberations without having to sacrifice pristine and stylish design cues.
What sets Level headphones apart from the competition is its smart and intuitive design. The most premium model, Level Over is not only wireless but also has touch controls located on the earcups. That means playing, pausing, and Leveling up and down are a breeze and with Samsung mobile devices, it can even activate S-Voice. The rest of the range consists of Level On and Level In, which are wired models that come with tactile button controls. But despite which model you choose, the Level range has powerful and premium sound reproductions with its 3-way speaker system. That in turn provides for clear, crisp, and powerful bass with Powerful Dynamic Speakers.
In addition, Samsung is also offering the Level Box, a Bluetooth speaker that pairs effortlessly via NFC. GILT is offering an exclusive bundle for both the Box and Level On headphones at a reduced price from retail outlets.
Samsung makes a strong and compelling debut into the audio market as the Level range proves to be fierce competition to many of the other headphones and wireless jam boxes currently available. Available in white, black, and silver, and at four different price points, there is a model to please everyone. To Level up your headphone style to the next dimension, head over to GILT before July 20th to be the first to rock out to some killer sounds.
“Menswear has evolved so much over the past 5 years.” Have you heard that observation before? We can endlessly evaluate the statement, but being cognizant that menswear has changed is obvious.
Another comment we hear often in relation to fashion is “we are living in an online and social media crazed world now.” How designers market collections have completely changed. The logic exists that garments do not hold enough clout to sell themselves, rather it is the branding and message behind the label that rules supreme. Again, we can rationalize both sides of the spectrum, yet one fact remains consistent. We are certainly adapting.
In an industry where change used to occur as frequently as Chicago Cubs championship parades, everything now seems to be changing at a feverish pace. A ‘learning on-the-fly’ dynamic is evident. The 45-plus year old age bracket executives are being exposed to a world that never existed to them previously.
We want to solve some issues here at Grungy Gentleman. The one component to clothing that has not changed yet is the tag. Yes, designers use different fabrics and express themselves, but they do not actually interact with their customers. This is where founder of iProof, Robert Gutierrez, is about to change the game.
Through a QR scanning code on the label, iProof provides a service to brands that eliminate headaches in tracking inventory and protecting against counterfeiting. But best of all, it allows interaction with the customer in a completely customizable way. For example, designer John Varvatos is a large rock-n-roll buff and may want to share a playlist with his fans. When the iProof QR label is scanned on the tag of a garment, the customer can then obtain the playlist that Mr. Varvatos provided. He could even update these music playlists daily. That’s not all! Want to share your current lookbook with customers and entice future sales? Want to send your customer-base special washing instructions? The options and opportunities with iProof are absolutely endless. And the options and opportunities with fashion are endless too. Time to get with it.
