Welcome to Greg's Picks, a one stop destination for the products that I think you need in your menswear, food, or lifestyle arsenal. Here you will find some items I find to be wardrobe staples. I'll be sure to throw in kitchen essentials, you can trust me, I know how to cook. Also, whenever I come across a must have gadget, or movie, or anything lifestyle centric I'll be sure to drop a line here. As this being a style guide, I figured I should get serious about guiding style and make it possible for you all to get the tools necessary to live more stylishly.

What to Watch Now: "Horse Power" A Documentary on HIp-Hop's Impact on Polo Ralph Lauren

The photos of that outfit will never see the light of day. But Polo had that much of a pull on my style back then. I just watched this fascinating documentary "Horse Power" on Polo Ralph Lauren's interesting relationship with Hip-Hop. Check it out.
