Throughout our lives, we often find ourselves confronted with the task of figuring out how to stand out amongst countless others that we face on a daily basis. As we grow, we go through phases and the ways in which we go about achieving this task begin to change with us. This desire to differentiate from the majority is inherent within some of us, while others are content with a more apathetic approach, opting to blend in rather than risk rocking the boat. With each new self-discovery, a sense of individuality starts to take shape. The easiest, and most obvious way to express that individuality is through one’s appearance. We start to see it even as children, going from having your clothes laid out by mom to that moment you finally give her the Mutombo finger shake of rejection when she tries to pick your outfit for the last time. From there we can look to the teenage years, a big trial and error phase for most. In time, people start to get a firmer grasp on their style, the impression they hope to give to others, the people they hope to attract, and so on. As we venture into adulthood and beyond, these appearances matter far greater than before.

In a world where so many succumb to the conformity around them, it’s the one that possesses that level of authenticity, the one that feels suffocated by the thought of “fitting in” that gets noticed first. As a man, there’s just no easier way to stand out than in a fine suit. For far too long, a sense of creativity and personality escaped the world of menswear, making way for a more mass produced, off-the-rack, clonelike mentality. Now, a game changer has stepped into the ring, allowing you a seemingly infinite level of customization down to the smallest detail, effectively making you the designer behind your own dream suit. What you’re left with is a garment, tailored to your specific fit, with a style unique to you and only you – courtesy of SilverFox Label.

SilverFox is the brainchild of Randall Mills, a Florida native that has already made a name for himself as a young, successful professional in a number of fields ranging from commercial real estate to the hospitality industry, as well as managing and overseeing local charity fundraisers and events. After getting the chance to sit and talk with him about the motivation behind his latest endeavor into the realm of custom menswear, he said,

“Honestly, it started out as more of a passion project that I would work on whenever I could squeeze some extra time for myself aside from everything else, but the inspiration behind it has always been my grandfather.”

He went on to tell me how his grandfather, Howard Mills, is a man that, not only he, but everyone can learn from. As a role model throughout his upbringing and now into his adult life as well, he always set an example of what to aspire to be like. He epitomizes the term Silver Fox as acting with class, exuding confidence, and most importantly, always being dressed to kill. While some may view the name as lending to an older audience, it couldn't be further from the truth. The styles and options available to you from the moment you begin designing your custom garment are so limitless it can best described by imagining the figure eight of infinity in your head, allowing you to be as traditional or as unconventional as you'd like. Aside from suits, SilverFox Label also offers custom options for dress shirts, sport coats, trousers, tuxedos, and overcoats.

Most tailors use a system of anywhere between 10 to 15 measurements. Every SilverFox member is measured with a relentless attention to detail using a 26 point body measurement and then the selecting from 9 different fit options depending on how tight or loose you desire. They will even send a trained stylist consultant to your home or office to set up a consultation and fitting. Once you've been measured, the fun part comes. You start designing your suit from head to toe, down from the most eye-catching to the most subtle of specifications; choosing the fabrics, the inner lining, lapel size and style, additional pockets, working buttonholes, accent thread colors and everything in between. Also, being fully aware of the human body's likeliness to change over time, any further adjustments or modifications that may be necessary later down the line are covered as well. After an estimated 4-6 weeks, your customized creation is hand delivered to you by your stylist who will then conduct one final inspection and adjustments, if needed.

Companies like this one, that offer the ability to personalize your wardrobe to reflect your individual taste and preference are only going to become more and more frequent. So when you go in for that interview, catch the gaze of that woman you've been eyeing across the room, or if you just feel like walking down the street looking damn good, you'll feel confident in the fact that you don't look like 'this' guy or 'that' guy – you're You. You're welcome.

To The Parent Who Chose Addiction

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

When I was younger I resented you, I hated every ounce of you, and I used to question why God would give me a parent like you. Not now. Now I see the beauty and the blessings behind having an addict for a parent. If you're reading this, it isn't meant to hurt you, but rather to thank you.

Thank you for choosing your addiction over me.

Throughout my life, you have always chosen the addiction over my programs, my swim meets or even a simple movie night. You joke about it now or act as if I never questioned if you would wake up the next morning from your pill and alcohol-induced sleep, but I thank you for this. I thank you because I gained a relationship with God. The amount of time I spent praying for you strengthened our relationship in ways I could never explain.

SEE ALSO: They're Not Junkies, You're Just Uneducated

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

The amount of hurt and disappointment our family has gone through has brought us closer together. I have a relationship with Nanny and Pop that would never be as strong as it is today if you had been in the picture from day one. That in itself is a blessing.

Thank you for showing me how to love.

From your absence, I have learned how to love unconditionally. I want you to know that even though you weren't here, I love you most of all. No matter the amount of heartbreak, tears, and pain I've felt, you will always be my greatest love.

Thank you for making me strong.

Thank you for leaving and for showing me how to be independent. From you, I have learned that I do not need anyone else to prove to me that I am worthy of being loved. From you, I have learned that life is always hard, but you shouldn't give into the things that make you feel good for a short while, but should search for the real happiness in life.

Most of all, thank you for showing me how to turn my hurt into motivation.

I have learned that the cycle of addiction is not something that will continue into my life. You have hurt me more than anyone, but through that hurt, I have pushed myself to become the best version of myself.

Thank you for choosing the addiction over me because you've made me stronger, wiser, and loving than I ever could've been before.

5 Songs to Add to Your Playlist This Month

Spring into finals week (and the summer) by "cleaning up" your playlist

835

Here are some fun, fresh new tracks to check out as you finish out the rest of the school year and help you get out of your "music comfort zone!"

“Patience” by Tame Impala 

Genre: Electronic/Alternative

Tame Impala FINALLY released new music (!!), and this track is absolutely stunning. With frontrunner Kevin Parker staying on brand with the band's psychedelic, seemingly ethereal style, it sounds like a combination of 70s soft rock and waves of modern-day electronica, with Parker's voice drifting in and out in a kind of otherworldly, mellowed-out manner.

“Harmony Hall” by Vampire Weekend 

Genre: Alternative/Indie Pop

Vampire Weekend is also releasing an album, entitled "Father of the Bride", on May 3rd. From the looks of it, this track relates to the theme of marriage/weddings present in the album's title, and it is a fun, upbeat song that I have been listening to a lot in the morning as I'm getting ready for class! Ezra Koenig's voice is so unique and can cover a broad range, and I highly recommend listening to some of the band's other work as well ("Step" from their 2013 release "Modern Vampires of the City" is one of my all-time favorite songs!).

“Ready to Let Go” by Cage the Elephant 

Genre: Alternative/Alternative Rock

So many great artists are (finally) releasing new albums this year, and Cage the Elephant falls into this category. This track is an absolute banger and doesn't stray much from the band's style in that it includes a lot of loud guitar and dynamic vocals. Like Vampire Weekend, Cage the Elephant has been around since the early 2000s, and I highly recommend checking out some of their earlier work as well (big fan of their most recent album, actually!)

“Apple Orchard” by Beach House 

Genre: Indie/Electronic

Beach House is one of my favorite bands of all time, as I find a kind of an ethereal, beautiful sadness in the dreamy style of instrumentalist Alex Scally and lucid vocals of singer Victoria Legrand. This track is from their 2006 self-titled debut and is probably one of my favorite songs they've ever released. The lyrics are poetic and perfect for the post-finals enjoyment of spring weather, in that they preach relaxation and restfulness, and the song's electronic rhythms echo the essence of spring as well. If you like this song, then I highly recommend checking out the band's other albums as well (Depression Cherry is one of my favorite albums of all time).

“April Come She Will” by Simon & Garfunkel 

Genre: 60s Pop

No spring playlist is complete without a little Simon & Garfunkel! This song is a classic, its timeless, poetic lyrics capturing the epitome of the coming of spring and all its glory. In fact, I consider the entire album (entitled Sound of Silence) to be perfect for the pleasantness and feelings of renewal/natural revitalization associated with the coming months, so be sure to give it a listen if you haven't heard it before!
