big and tall polo ‘The Boy next Door’ is an awful guy

January has historically been the month when film studios dump their less than desirable product into movie theaters. Ticket sales slow down in the winter after the holiday season is over and it’s past the deadline date for the zillions of awards that the entertainment industry likes to bestow upon itself, so there isn’t a better time for Hollywood to clear out the dreck. When you then add a film starring Jennifer Lopez, whose alleged talent has long escaped me, in the January equation, the results are almost guaranteed to be astonishingly awful. “The Boy Next Door” certainly doesn’t buck the odds.

Claire Peterson (Lopez) is a suburban LA high school literature teacher. J Lo is not going to let playing an educator stop her character from wearing the latest clothes, having model like hair and makeup, and living in a modern Southern California mansion. All is not peaches and cream for her, however, as she is separated from her husband, Garrett (John Corbett), who is an information technology executive. Claire caught Garrett cheating on her during a San Francisco business trip. Claire’s dorky teenage son, Kevin (Ian Porter), desperately needs a fatherly or big brotherly figure.

Right on cue, in steps Noah Sandborn (Ryan Guzman), a strapping 20 year old from San Bernardino who has moved next door to Claire so that he can take care of his ailing grand uncle. Noah can quote ancient Greek literature, fix pesky garage doors and take apart and put back together any car’s engine.

He asks Claire to come over and help him roast a chicken on a rare, rainy Saturday night in Southern California. One thing leads to another, as they say. The fact that Guzman, a former mixed martial arts star,

looks like a combination of Channing Tatum, Jason Priestley and James Franco makes this steamy scene with J Lo credible which is more than I can say for most of this film. Like Lopez, Guzman gets to wear preppy clothes for the entire film, which adds to his hunk factor. He looks like a Nautica or Polo Ralph Lauren model who, in fairness, does possess some acting ability.

Of course there are the expected regrets on Claire’s part the following morning. When she tries to break it to Noah gently that theirs was a wonderful one night thing that won’t ever be repeated, he turns into a raving, maniacal stalker who will do whatever is necessary to make sure that she never reconciles with her estranged husband, who is trying to patch things up. It will be over his dead body if they do. The audience in the theater that I was at started laughing as if it were watching one of the “Scary Movie” sequels as Claire idiotically puts herself into one risky situation after anther without using a shred of common sense, such as breaking into Noah’s basement when he isn’t home to try to find the video he made of their lovemaking session, or entering the home of a friend who is in danger even though the electricity has been turned off and it’s pitch black outside. Add to this nonsense the over the top burning farmhouse finale, which is cliched cinema 101.

Just about the only time when “The Boy Next Door” provides any true food for thought is in a scene wherein Claire’s best friend, Vicki (the always welcome Kristin Chenoweth), sets up a double date for them. During the dinnertime conversation Claire tells her date that she teaches “the classics,” and she is upset with his reaction. “The classics are nice but we need to prepare students for the jobs in the workforce as well,” he replies. The scene abruptly ends with the filmmakers trying hard to make the guy look like a jerk when in fact there is a lot of merit to his point. The reality is that expensive liberal arts colleges are under a lot of scrutiny exactly because there is a disconnect between what is taught and its value in the economic marketplace.

The entertainment trade magazine Variety reported that “The Boy Next Door” was shot in 25 days on a shoestring $4 million budget (Lopez is the film’s producer), and it certainly shows. In the film’s defense, it can be argued that like “Showgirls” or those cheesy Ed Wood movies, it’s so bad that it’s actually good.

polo rugby kids 12 best clothing brands for big and tall men

oregon high school water polo 12 best clothing brands for big and tall men

The average British man stands at around 5ft 10in, and weighs around 12 and a half stone. And if you ask someone who goes far over those measurements, they’ll probably tell you that the fashion world is hardly forgiving.

But there’s no need for righteous indignation, as the market is changing. A number of high street brands have recently launched ranges to suit people with wider, longer frames, while there are an ever increasing number of brands which cater specifically for them. After all, the human race has been getting steadily taller and larger for the past century, so we may as well look good while we’re at it.

The most important thing is to have a real idea of what your measurements are. Of course, you can never beat going into a shop and trying on something first, but if you’re buying online, have a tape measure handy. Different brands have different ways of denoting their sizes, which can be somewhat confusing at first, but each of the ones we’ve featured have useful online size guides. And of course, we all have different body shapes and sizes, so not every brand’s sizing will fit every guy.

We’ve included a mix of brands, some catering for purely tall, slim guys, while others cover both tall and large. And for each entry, we’ve picked out one of our favourite products, to give you an idea of what to expect. We’ve mainly gone for brands with impressive own ranges, but many of the websites we’ve listed also carry clothes from other companies be sure to check those out too.

So whether you’re in the market for a new suit that nails the required length without hanging like a cape, or simply a T shirt which provides comfort and coverage in all the right places, this list will have you covered.

As you might guess from the name, this brand is purely for tall men specifically, tall, slim men, with an average customer height of 6ft 8in, and range of tops and bottoms which should fit men up to 7ft 4in. What’s more, the brand is run by tall, slim men, so it knows the struggle that comes with elongated limbs. Its website sells a number of other brands Eterna, Juicy, Mish Mash and Girav to name a few each of which has been chosen by 2Tall for their tall man suitability. Its own brand pieces, which are characterised by a laid back simplicity, cover tops and bottoms, while other brands offer suits and footwear.

IndyBest pick 2T Tall T shirt: 15

Here’s a collection which caters for that awkward middle ground between tall and really tall specifically, between 6ft 3in and 6ft 6in. It comes courtesy of the designer clothing brand Ted Baker, and was designed with the help of former World Champion swimmer Mark Foster (6ft 6in, if you were wondering). Its suit jackets and shirts offer longer torsos and sleeve lengths, while the rest of the collection including tops, T shirts, bottoms, jackets, knitwear and footwear is casual erring on the side of smart. When it comes to sizing, the main thing to get to grips with is the numbering system for tops, which runs from 4 to 7. If you would usually opt for a large, you’re a 4; if it’s usually a XL, you’re a 5, and so on.

IndyBest pick T for Tall Monictt Diamond Print Cotton Shirt: 99

The high street giant Asos has good form when it comes to inclusive clothing, with its Curve range for women, as well as an impressive selection of petite clothing. In February, it launched two distinct ranges for men: Plus and Tall. In terms of style, both are what you’d expect from Asos, offering on trend, millennial pleasing pieces, covering just about every item of clothing you’ll need. Sizes go up to 8XL on the Plus side of things, while Tall is aimed at guys who top the 6ft 3in mark, with leg lengths extending to 38in. Alongside the ever growing own brand selection, you’ll find pieces from brands such as Polo Ralph Lauren, Cheap Monday, Puma and French Connection.

IndyBest pick Asos Tall Bomber Jacket in Blue: 30

Jacamo is probably the best known “big and tall” brand out there. It has a huge selection, including smart and casual clothing, footwear, sportswear and accessories. It’s a mixture of own brand, flagship collaborations with celebrities such as former cricketer Freddie Flintoff, and other well known brands, such as Nike, Ellesse and Helly Hansen. Shirts and tops go up to 6XL, with regular and long fits, while trousers are available up to a waist size of 64in (although, as things stand, they only extend to an inside leg of 33in. Jeans, meanwhile, extend to 36in). And, to correct a popular misconception, Jacamo’s sizes go all the way down to a small. It’s also part of the Ethical Trading Initiative.

IndyBest pick Black Label Belted Smart Stretch Chino Regular: 30

Skopes is one of the most widely stocked suit brands in UK department stores, and provides abrilliant,
polo rugby kids 12 best clothing brands for big and tall men
extensive range of big and tall suits. For jackets, its chest sizes go up to 62 inches, while trouser waists extend to 52 inches as a result, we think Skopes is best suited to men after bigger suits rather than longer, as the inside leg lengths only go up to 33in. Whether it’s for regular office use, a wedding, a black tie event, or anything else that requires you to suit up, Skopes has it covered. Expect reasonable prices and excellent quality.

IndyBest pick Darwin Suit Jacket Black Stripe: 219.95 for matching jacket, waistcoat and trousers

Here’s another of the main high street retailers to have expanded into the big and tall market or, as Next calls it, Longer and Larger. It covers all the areas of Next’s standard range, with suits (up to 52in chest, 46in waist), formal shirts (21in with regular and long sleeve lengths), and formal trousers (46in waist, 37in leg). There’s also an extensive casual range, with shirts and tops that go up to 4XL and, as we found, are better for the man who needs something both longer and larger. Casual trousers and jeans extend to 44in waist and 35in inside leg, while footwear goes up to a size 15.

IndyBest pick Navy/Red Block Panel T shirt: 18

River Island launched its online only Big Tall range back in February, offering size adjustments on some of its best selling menswear pieces. It offers sizes up to 4XL so, again, it’s for the man who needs both big and tall with trousers up to a 48in waist and 38in inside leg, the latter setting it above a few of its high street competitors. Currently, there are around 150 items in the range, range from bold, eye catching prints to the more reserved shirts and trousers.

IndyBest pick Big and Tall Pink Floral Short Sleeve Shirt: 25

This is one of the very newest big and tall clothing ranges out there, having only launched back in April of this year. Around a third of M total menswear range is available in big and tall sizes, and this proportion is set to increase in the coming months. So the clothing on offer is what you already know from the retailer: smart and sophisticated. It’s ever popular suits extend to a chest size of 54in and extra long lengths, while the suit trousers boast a 37in inside leg. On the casual side of things, tops go up to 4XL, and the jeans and chinos go up to 35in inside leg.

IndyBest pick Big Tall Chinos with Stormwear: 29.50

For the more substantial bloke, chinos can be a mixed bag. Some can be comfortable and versatile, others can be too tight fitting and restrictive. But we’re fans on this pair, which has a fairly stretchy waistband, meaning that even if the measurements are an inch or two off, you’ll still be comfortable. The fit is relaxed, too. Made using sustainable cotton, it also boasts water repellent Stormwear techonology, which means you won’t get quite as soaked if you’re caught out when the heavens open. Available in seven muted tones.

This brand has been in existence for over a century now, and specialises in qualityAmerican made clothing. It’s range is huge, covering most of the clothing and accessories spectrum, but it excels when it comes to the smarter side of things. Rather than create an entirely separate range for its big and tall clothing, Nordstrom has modified the lengths and fits of existing pieces to cater for larger measurements. Just how large those measurements go, as well as whether they’re available in both big and tall sizes, varies quite a bit from item to item, but the selection is certainly plentiful. Expect exceptionally well made, durable pieces, both from Nordstrom’s own range and from the huge number of other brands it sells, most of which are in a similar mould to Nordstrom.

IndyBest pick Nordstrom Smartcare Classic Fit Plaid Dress Shirt: 55.98

If you work in an office with a strict, smart dress code, this might be just about as flamboyant as you’re allowed to get, with its red, chequered design. We chose it because it’s available in both big and tall sizes, with sleeve lengths of 37in for tall and big, and neck sizes of 18.5 just for big. It’s in the so called “classic” fit, which, as Nordstrom puts it, is “the most generous cut” on offer. If you’re after something slimmer, there are tighter fits available. Also available in purple and blue colourways.

Here’s another brand with over a hundred years of experience in menswear. Burton is best known for its suits, and a decent number of those are available in big and tall sizes, with jackets going up to 52 long, and trousers offered with a 35in inside leg and waists up to 52in. If you’re after something more casual, then Burton has you covered too, with a sharp looking collection ranging from oxford shirts to bomber jackets, going up to a 5XL.

IndyBest pick 3 Piece Navy Pin Dot Tailored Fit Suit: 134

Department store Debenhams carries a number of other brands with extended sizes Ben Sherman, Centaur and Red Herring among them but we’ve focused on its own brand, The Collection, which dominates the Big Tall section. It’s a largely formal selection, with a range of solidly made shirts, trousers, accessories and outerwear. It’s shirts, of which there are over 150, will fit chests sized up to 64in, and the sleeves have a few inches added on compared to the standard sizing. The trousers, meanwhile, offer waists up to 48in and inside legs up to 35in.

ralph lauren polo dresses for women 12 stores still closed

polo outlet foley 12 stores still closed

QUEENSTOWN A month after they were closed because of roof damage caused by heavy snow, a dozen stores at Prime Outlets at Queenstown remain closed “until further notice.”

The stores were closed on Feb. 10 when the second of two blizzards within days of each other dumped heavy snow on the area.

“We continue to work with a team of engineers and contractors to assess and determine the best course of action to correct roof damage two of our buildings suffered during February’s snowstorms,” the company said in an e mailed statement from spokesman Sue Helondovitch.

“We are working diligently to create a timeline for these repairs.

The company emphasized on its Web site that the majority of the stores at Queenstown are open and that it is working “diligently” to re open them.

Asked for more specific information on the damage and efforts to address it Helondovitch said “that is the information I am able to provide at this time.”

Mike Savage of the Middle Department Inspection Agency in Easton is the Town of Queenstown’s zoning administrator and is responsible for the inspection of buildings within the town limits, including the outlets.

“A structural engineer reviewed all the buildings and found some signs of structural weakness,” Savage said. He said that while nothing collapsed, some of the roofs sagged noticeably under the weight of heavy snow.

Savage said no one is allowed in the buildings until the repairs are completed.

He said he is keeping in touch with the company’s engineers as they work to “specify a fix” to make the buildings “structurally suitable” so they can again meet the requirements of the building code.

Once the repairs are completed, Savage will inspect the buildings before issuing the proper permits, he said.

The closed stores are Chesapeake Gourmet, Paper Factory, Nike, Polo Ralph Lauren, Timberland, Juicy Couture, Michael Kors, Gymboree, Nine West, Nautica, Tommy Hilfiger and Yankee Candle.

Worthy was charged in the Polo Ralph Lauren burglary.

Davis was held $195,000 bail while Worthy was released on his own recognizance, the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office stated. The investigation involved 17 law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and out of state law departments.

30 N. Christopher Columbus Ave.

In 1971, Johnny Morris, frustrated by the lack of tackle in local stores, rented a U Haul trailer and took off across the country filling it with the newest premium fishing tackle he could find. When he returned home to Springfield, Missouri, Johnny set up shop in his dad’s liquor store, which was located on the way to Table Rock Lake. With this simple idea, Bass Pro Shops was born.

This new store became popular with local and out of state fishermen. By 1974, Johnny printed and mailed the first Bass Pro Shops catalog. In 1978, he introduced Bass Tracker ” the first boat, motor, and trailer package designed just for anglers.

By building and selling boats factory direct, Johnny was able to pass on huge value and savings to fishermen. Tracker has remained America’s 1 selling fishing boat for more than 35 years running.

From those humble beginnings, Bass Pro Shops has become America’s leading outdoor retailer with stores across America and Canada. Every Bass Pro Shops store still offers an incredible array of fishing and boating equipment. We’re also the premier shopping destination for hunting, camping, and outdoor cooking gear as well as outdoor footwear and nature themed gifts.

Bass Pro Shops is more than a retail mecca for sportsmen, though. Since the beginning, Johnny Morris has been dedicated to inspiring people, especially youth and families, to love, enjoy and conserve the great outdoors. That commitment, demonstrated over the course of several decades, is a big reason why Bass Pro Shops is known as the outdoor industry’s corporate conservation leader. Bass Pro Shops conservation efforts include partnering with and supporting the efforts of many organizations that work to conserve and manage the nation’s natural resources. The company’s key conservation initiatives include fish and wildlife habitat improvements, conservation and outdoor skills education, improving water quality and quality of our lakes and springs, and conservation advocacy.

“If you could call this place something, it would be tantamount, in Spanish, to that sitcom in English where everybody knows your name Cheers,” says Miami Dade Fire Rescue’s Lt. Eddie Ballester.

There was much trepidation about the coming of this monster movie theater to our much treasured Road. Would this cold and corporate megaplex shoveling out Hollywood hits put an end to any remaining pretense of funkiness that the mall had? Surprise: The Regal on South Beach has fit in more snug than many thought. First, it lived up to its promise to show alternative movies. At least two screens per week show foreign or gay theme films, or films that otherwise might not have unspooled here. Second, the theaters themselves are comfortable: medium size rooms, plush seats, and good views from every one of them (so often not the case at a megaplex). Parking hasn’t been a problem, either; in fact you can often find a spot right on Alton Road, just a block away. There is a good selection of food, a caf even an outdoor patio and balcony, and absolutely no loud video arcade anywhere on the premises. Finally, before or after the movie you can stroll down the street that, while it has lost much of its counterculture vibe, remains Miami Dade’s most people friendly urban area. Plummer had his re election formula down pat: Raise tons of cash, glad hand voters at community festivals, and have his Cuban friends praise him on Spanish language radio. It had worked seven times before, after all. Upstart businessman Johnny Winton might push him into a runoff, but the veteran’s vast war chest would crush him. Oops! While Miami politics changed, Plummer didn’t. District elections had turned the city’s politically neglected Upper East Side into a powerful force that overwhelmed Plummer’s traditional base in the Cuban community. He also underestimated how badly the city’s scandals sullied his reputation. Most voters, including many in Plummer’s Coconut Grove back yard, didn’t buy his pleas of ignorance as his colleagues were arrested, the city fell into disarray, and taxes climbed. In addition the 29 year incumbent didn’t take underdog Winton seriously. The end result: Plummer maintained his unprecedented streak of seven elections without a runoff. But he was clobbered in the eighth.

It all began here in 1993: salsa classes on Monday and Wednesday nights at the spacious and charmingly down at the heels Blue Banquet Hall. By now the place is packed four nights a week, and Salsa Lovers is a huge enterprise, having expanded to two more locations. But the West Miami Dade scene has a festive, nightclubby quality all its own, and it just keeps getting hotter (sometimes literally; the AC is erratic). Monday through Thursday a large and varied crowd descends on the hall, everyone from senior citizens to families to middle school students, though the 20 to 30 year old crowd dominates. The sheer energy generated by hundreds of slaves to the salsa rhythm is irresistible. Some people skip the classes and instead hang out, flirt, or practice moves with a partner. Oscar D’Leon blares from the speakers, and pretty soon everyone’s in a whirl dile que no, dame una, hips going and fondillos shaking, abr abanico, arms rising and feet pivoting, monta balsero, and sometimes the lights will dim and the tacky disco balls will turn. For seven dollars (price per lesson) you get all this, and you might even learn the paseo por el parque.

In many American political plays, a guy (it’s usually a guy) comes onstage and talks. The set, the costumes, the lighting they’re all window dressing, which helps to explain the sorry state of political drama. Doug Wright’s 1995 work Quills, however, dissects the issues of censorship through the trials of the Marquis de Sade. But it’s also a play of images. In the exquisitely designed Florida Stage production, Jim Fulton’s lighting design reproduced the Marquis’s naughty writing as luminescent streaks across the theater walls. Allen D. Cornell’s inventive turntable set gave rise to multiple arresting scenes, not the least of which was the yanking out of the Marquis’s tongue. Suzette Pare’s costumes smartly outfitted the small minded denizens of nineteenth century France as well as the increasingly more disrobed Sade. And Scott Burgess’s sound design created an asylumwide orgy we could “see,” though it happened off stage. At the helm was artistic director Louis Tyrrell, whose fluid hand and wicked sense of humor proved to be assets the Marquis would have loved.

In his many years as the public face of the county’s public schools, Fraind had repeatedly proven himself to be inarticulate, insensitive, and inflexible. When school board members finally got tired of him making them look bad and decided, at their March meeting, to appoint someone else as their spokesman, Fraind demonstrated the wisdom of the decision by offering an upraised arm and fist in the universal gesture for “up yours” to a parent who had questioned his salary level. How ironic that the first candid, straightforward, concise statement from this guy, captured by the television cameras that record each meeting, came only on the eve of his removal as the district’s mouthpiece.

It’s supposed to feel like a little bit of Nantucket down here on the lower peninsula. A fresh and crisp Northeastern respite from the scorching Southern sun. But really the lobby in the new Beach House is Florida through and through. This is no rectangular foyer, stop over while you check in type of lobby. Instead you get different lounges with different flavors for different moods, all outfitted (if the blue hue didn’t already give it away) by the Polo Ralph Lauren design team. If you enter from Collins Avenue, huge vases of fresh cut flowers usually yellow greet the visitor at the entrance, which is decked out in muted blue and white. But no need to dally here. Head for the bright and playful room to the right the, well, Florida room. Two walls are windows, with views out to the pool and to the ocean beyond. Lime green covers the walls; pink, salmon, yellow, green, and blue cover the cushions and pillows on the white wicker furniture. That may sound noisy but it’s not. The colors combine into a soothing balm, light and airy but well removed from the heat. All the rooms are furnished like a bed and breakfast knickknacks on the end tables, art books scattered about for a leisurely browse. The main lobby is toned down, furnished in brown wicker with blue upholstery, and trimmed with sophisticated Chinese porcelains and paintings (heavy on deep red and gold, adding an extra lush touch). From here it’s also possible to see the pool area, which really should be considered part of the lobby as well, with its multicolor cabanas, ample seating, and hedges sculpted into sea horses. Grab a drink from the bar and choose your mood: There’s no better way to refresh your feeling for Florida.

In a season fraught with top drawer solo performances (Charles Nelson Reilly in Life of Reilly, Kathleen Turner in Tallulah, Melinda Lopez in Medianoche, and Jean Stapleton in Eleanor: Her Secret Journey), Judith Delgado towered over all. Playing fashion diva Diana Vreeland, the actress delivered a performance that lived up to Vreeland’s motto: “Give ’em what they didn’t know they wanted.” Vreeland’s life story garnered 1996 Drama Desk and Obie awards for creators Mark Hampton and Mary Louise Wilson when Wilson starred in it. Elizabeth Ashley did the honors when the national tour passed through South Florida in 1998. Nonetheless Delgado, a genius at transforming herself, turned the tastemaker and long time Vogue editor into something of her own (and director Joseph Adler’s) making. Even the actress’s elegant, oversize hands conspired to become a perfect physical match for Vreeland’s elegant, larger than life personality. It was a performance that reached out and grabbed us by our lapels.

“Have Character, Will Travel.” So reads the business card of Daniel Ricker, self appointed “citizen advocate,” who spent the past year attending county commission meetings, city commission meetings, school board meetings, and Public Health Trust meetings, all in an effort to better understand how government operates. He even sat through the public corruption trial of former county Commissioner James Burke so he could hear firsthand how deals are made at the county level. Why did he do it? Ricker, who made his fortune managing international companies that sell coronary pacemakers, says he became so disgusted with the sleaze and corruption of politics in South Florida that, rather than withdraw into apathy, he became hyperactive in the community. He took a year off work and dedicated himself to his task. A man of limitless patience (a necessary attribute in order to sit through some of those meetings), he says he never became bored and always found the working of government fascinating and important. Simply knowing that an informed member of the public was attending those meetings, watching every move they made, undoubtedly had a sobering effect on Miami’s less than trustworthy politicians and bureaucrats.

In a county with woefully slim public transportation options, Miami Beach planners looked out their windows, past the backed up traffic at the stoplights, and saw the future. It was pretty, environmentally friendly, and didn’t cost a lot. The ElectroWave shuttle buses premiered two years ago and have proven to be a wonderfully hassle free way to navigate the often congested streets of South Beach. And a good thing was recently improved: In April the routes were expanded to cover more city blocks north of the original South Pointe to Seventeenth Street loop. Plus the fleet grew from seven to eleven vehicles, and payment options were increased (you can now use your parking debit card to pay the 25 cent fare). The shuttles are completely electric, with propane powered air conditioning units. “We are the only all electric transit system in the country,” exclaims Judy Evans, executive director of Miami Beach Transportation Management Association. “We’ve become a model for other cities.”

facebook twitter google+ emailNew Marco Polo camper van from Mercedes looks to muscle in on Volkswagen California territory when it launches in Germany This is the Mercedes Benz Marco Polo, a new compact camper van to rival the Volkswagen California that has debuted at the annual Caravan Salon exhibition in Dusseldorf.Based on the standard V Class and developed with the help of Westfalia, it seats or sleeps up to four people and comes complete with a kichenette, wardrobe and retractable table.Styling wise there’s liberal use of porcelain colours throughout the cabin, plus a choice of light or dark decking for the floor and a range of satin beige and black seat trims, including Lugano leather upholstery. Completing the upmarket look and feel, only LED lighting is used throughout the interior, with optional ambient lighting available for the kitchenette. Best VW camper van conversionsWhen it comes to mealtimes, the Marco Polo features large and small self closing draws, two hobs, a refrigerator, extending worktop and even a kitchen sink. Sitting down to eat shouldn’t be an issue either, as the scratch resistant folding table fits neatly between the rear bench and the driver and front passenger seats, both of which can rotate 180 degrees to face the rear.After occupants have had their fill, a split backrest means the rear seats can be independently flattened in a matter of seconds at the touch of a button, forming a fairly snug double bed. A slightly larger foam mattress is also located under the pop up roof, which boasts improved legroom over the previous model and can be fitted with a protective net to stop children falling off the front edge.Prying eyes,

light and heat from the sun are kept out by tinted rear glass, and there’s also a curtain for the windscreen and front side windows when it’s time for a complete lights out. Finishing off the Marco Polo’s glamping aesthetic is a portable chairs and table set for outside use, these are stored in a bag within the luggage compartment when not in use.When actually driving, there’s also comfort suspension as standard for ease of use, and a 1.98m high roofline shouldn’t have any trouble getting into garages, car parks or low level bridges.As you’d expect, there’s a whole host of safety features and driver assists, including Mercedes’ Active Parking tech, Attention Assist to warn against drowsiness, and optional 360 degree cameras.Power comes from any of three four cylinder turbodiesel engines, ranging from 134bhp and 188bhp, with the 161bhp 220 CDI capable of 47mpg while emitting just 158g/km of C02. For the flagship 188bhp CDI, an ‘over torque’ function briefly boosts output by 13bhp and 40Nm of torque, offering 201bhp and 480Nm under heavy acceleration.Set to go on sale in Germany at the end of July, there are currently no plans to bring the Marco Polo to the UK. Mercedes could be tempted to introduce the camper van over here if there is sufficient interest though, with prices likely to start from just over 45,000.How do you like Mercedes’ chances of muscling in on Volkswagen’s camper van territory? Could the three pointed star ever become the badge to have in this market? Let us know in the comments section below.

womens black polo Atlantic City Meets New York Fashion

www.polo boots Atlantic City Meets New York Fashion

It was nearly 11pm by the time Atlantic City’s own Ray Oliver Bacoy’s models strutted the runway to the Platters’ “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes.”

The girls were growing weary, having walked for four hours already, going through the paces down a makeshift runway inside a cramped second floor hotel conference room.

Despite some guests departing before the final show of the night, now running an hour late, chairs were still in high demand and short supply. Latecomers clung to the wall, bloggers with digital cameras, more interested in shooting the models fierce and hardened and young and plush than the clothes, continued to jockey for position on the photographers’ riser.

The lights dimmed and rose one final time to quiet down and alert the rows of pompadours and patent loafers hot pink hot pants and black lace bodysuits leaning forward from worn velvet parlour chairs that Huckle Gatsby’s Fall 2011 presentation was about to close another Plitz Fashion Marketing production: “Fashion Democracy Fashionistas Rule!”

The Platters gave way to Queen, then Florence The Machine and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. There was no more Rihanna, no more Lady Gaga or Pitbull pumping out of the speakers.

The music mellowed, the girls straightened up, slowed down, and walked the carpet with pride, eschewing the garish body hugging clubwear and emblazoned T shirts that would put them on the wrong side of the velvet rope at Borgata’s MIXX, for the ruffles, tunics and tuxedo shirts, florals, ruffles, and checks that draw on the seersucker Americana of Twain and Fitzgerald and from which Huckle Gatsby (Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald) takes its name.

“They’re Ray’s favorite two books,” Rachele Greenberg, Huckle Gatsby’s accessories designer told us.

“But also they represent both ends of the spectrum for our line. The clothes are upscale, with elegant touches and very reformed and tailored,
womens black polo Atlantic City Meets New York Fashion
but also have lots of notes of rustic comfort, relaxed and carefree in the garment design.”

The complexity of Bacoy’s clothes in contrast to the audience’s attire, and their acceptance of them (the crowd put golf pencils to paper, voting to award Huckle Gatsby a $6800 grand prize of editorial and advertising placement, web and video production before departing) was a huge gamble for the Atlantic City resident, who grew up in the shadow of the Showboat casino.

But both the risk he took and the look he crafted are a testament to the city he loves and which his extended family still calls home.

“The moment I stepped foot into town [moving to the city at age 14], my eyes were met with a plethora of contradicting visuals of organic and artificial matters,” he says. “The beach, the ocean, the marshes, the casinos, they all left me flabbergasted with joy. I love nature and architecture and both happen to coexist in Atlantic City.

“We found each other in college,” Greenberg recollected. “And realized that as a whole we strengthened each other’s weaknesses and worked well as a team. We wanted to start our fashion label based on the idea that we could give women the opportunity to attain high fashion with their everyday look.”

That vision of a high fashion woman first took its shape while he worked at the outlets of The Walk.

“My favorite stores are the Polo Ralph Lauren outlet store and Tommy Bahama because I used to work for both and the clothes are stupendously prepp,” he says. “I did not appreciate the art of tying a bow tie and dressing so refined until I started working at both places. That kind of lifestyle has carried on to the Huckle and Gatsby aesthetic.”

Huckle Gatsby doesn’t have the means to present a collection like Polo or other Atlantic City retailers such as Betsey Johnson and Michael Kors who both showed in the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week tents at Lincoln Center the following week.

Nor do they have the higher profile of so many independent designers who attempted to circumvent the official Fashion Week calendar with presentations at hotels with greater cache than the Beacon Hotel conference room reserved by Plitz, such as risque jeweler Bijules, whose show rocked the Gramercy Park Hotel rooftop and Bravo TV’s The Fashion Show favorite Daniella Kallmeyer who presented in the basement of the Plaza hotel where she also recently worked.

But for what Huckle Gatsby sacrificed in exposure to glossy editors, department store buyers and boldface names, they made up for in efficiency, the low cost of production and high reward of winning the tools to keep going and eventually reach that all important audience.

“Even though it wasn’t the venue everyone had hoped for, it was a catalyst for us to get our name slowly out there, sort of like an indie movie entering different film festivals,” Bacoy says. “We hope to showcase our lines at New York Fashion Week in the near future, but for now we are going to settle for local venues until we reach that peak of success. We have a few things lined up for the whole year.

“We will be at the Baltimore Fashion Week in late August where we will be debuting our Spring 2012 collection,

[and] at Charlotte Fashion Week in September and New Jersey Fashion Week in October.”
