Hey, I’m Michael Checkers, a men’s fashion influencer and stylist creating looks inspired by my endless summer digital nomad lifestyle. On this men’s style blog you’ll find outfit ideas, fashion trends, and tips for street style, what to wear to the beach, and smart casual workwear. Since I’m based in Miami Beach, I can show you some great ideas for what to wear in Miami and the latest Miami men’s fashion trends for 2019. When I’m not living the beach life in Miami, I’m traveling around the world. So you can also explore this blog and see street style trends and outfits from my travels to places like Portugal, Spain, Italy, and New York City.
I keep mixing black denim with tan shirts. I don’t know why exactly, it just feels authentic. It’s me. Walking out on the pier rocking jeans and hoodie. These APL sneakers are dope too. They might be banned fro the NBA but not from my @liketoknow.it

Planning the right outfits can literally make or break your trip. If you’re anything like me, you probably put off packing until the last minute, but think about for weeks. My trick to getting over the packing procrastination is outfit planning, and agile agenda planning. By agile agenda, I mean I plan a list of Alf the things I want to do. These are my goals. But I don’t assign them to a specific day for each thing. This way I can be more in the moment and live according to real life conditions like weather, how I feel in the moment, and meeting new people. Once I know what I want to do, I can plan my outfits for each thing. For example, on my last trips to Portugal, I know I was going to do a few key things. Going to Lagos, a beach town in the Algarve, going to Lisbon and touring the Palacio do Pena, and going to Porto to explore the historical center. (This is an abbreviation of my actual plans, to illustrate my point.) The beach, the palace, and the city centers all have different vibes, colors, and appropriateness levels that I considered while planning what to wear. I needed to put to together some versatile outfits quickly and within a budget. So I went to the Express Factory Outlet. Open this post for an exclusive promo code.
When your in a rush, just wear all black. Getting ready and out the door quickly was definitely worth it to get to explore this epic medieval castle in Galicia Spain. I feel like I’m on the set of Game of Thrones for real.
So the black leather jacket I’m wearing is from John Varvatos. I got it on sale but it’s retailing for $600 right now. But I found one that looks just like it H&M for $60. Learn more.

Óbidos Castle is one of the best things to see in Portugal. It’s pretty much on the way from Lisbon to Porto, so if you’re driving, you need to make this stop. I wore a comfortable all linen outfit for this Instaworthy photo spot.
The black leather jacket is a staple in my Fall wardrobe. But there are so many different styles and price points it can be tough to find the best one for you. Here’s a round up of my favorite men’s black leather jackets for this Fall based on the different styles and price points.
What’s My Favorite Style Trend This Fall? This Fall my favorite style trend so far is mixing off-white pants with neutral tops. It was inspired by exploring the stone streets and hidden gems of Salamanca Spain as I check-off my Europe travel bucket-list. Learn about why I choose to wear this outfit and how I styled this trend with black leather.
