At the beginning of the weekend I had the pleasure of stumbling across a new pizza joint, Delicious Pizza. The logo brought back instant memories of my youth. Back in the late ’80s and early ’90s Delicious Vinyl had a stable of some of the most famous names in Hip Hop. Tone Loc, Masta Ace, and of course The Pharcyde. Some of the older heads put me onto the label and even snagged me a promo single from Jessie Jaymes titled “Shake It Like A Whitegirl.” Essentially Asher Roth before Asher Roth.
Turns out the joint is co-owned by one of Delicious Vinyl’s former owners Mike Ross. The inside is a veritable museum of the hallowed grounds of the golden age. Because of this, I chose to roll with a simple outfit and some kicks that paid homage to the second love of my life: Hip Hop. Truth be told I haven’t worn an actual white tee in probably five years but since it was the first day of Summer, why not. For some reason, the design of shorts never actually feels or fits the same as the cutoff short. The legs on cutoffs are more slender and in general tend to lengthen the appearance of the legs as opposed to classic fitting shorts that can billow out and have the wearer looking crazy pear shaped. Not a good look for dudes.
