First and foremost I would like to hereby apologize for the crappy title ”Sportugal”, but nothing better crosses my sunstroke mind yet. Please just do not pay attention to it.
Portugal, Praia da Luz, 32 ° Celsius. Just in the heat of noon yesterday I slipped in a variety of courts, to throw myself dressed in the latest sportswear into a battle with different balls. Logically, I wear the colors of the reigning German football champions Borussia Dortmund: black and neon yellow.
My outfit consists of a black New Era cap, a pair of maximally sporty sunglasses with gradient skull-shaped custom glass, a neon yellow goggle strap (très sportif), a neon yellow vest from American Apparel, black Pêşmerge pants from Turkey, neon yellow sport socks from American Apparel and black-yellow-performance shoes from Nike. In addition, I carry a red sunburn on my nose and shoulders, trendy amongst the British hooligan scene.
What happened at the end of my ultra-busy sports day, I had mentioned yesterday.
Great! New suitcases by SAMSONITE. Thanks, yo!
The german sportswear-manufcatorer PUMA is currently vying for a favour by RIHANNA. Rumours say that the enterprise from Herzogenaurach has offered the barbadian singer more than a million dollars, if she designs for PUMA
So far, so uninteresting.
In case that Rihanna accepts the offer, she would not only be a designer for PUMA, which has already been done by Beoncé’s sister Solange Knowles, but would also mean that she is not allowed to wear clothes by ADIDAS anymore from the moment of signing the contract, on. That is written in the contract between PUMA and Riri, if you want to believe some insiders.
We think that something like that is really great. On one side, because it is very amusing, that the enmity, which started in 1948, between ADIDAS and PUMA, is still on-going. On the other side, because we hope, that that goes along with Jeremy Scott losing his job as a designer for ADIDAS. Rihanna is one of the most consistent promoters of his horribly loud designs.

After metrosexuality and spornosexuality, is it lumbersexuality going to be in?
Media as The Guardian, The Daily Beast and Buzzfeed presented ‘lumbersexual’ as the ‘next big thing’. Men with enormous beards and bellies in lumber-shirts, in work-boots, with wool-beanies on their heads and a freshly tapped beer in their hand.
But is that really the new trend? Men, who combine checked patterns with checked patterns, and who look like they have chucked some trees in the wood. No, not really. The look has been existing in the gay-scene for years (‘bears’ or ‘cubs’).
Plus we already know about the core-elements of the look (beard, lumber-shirt) from the hipster-scene. The picture (view the photo), which was used to express lumber-sexuality in a photo, has also been used to present the usual example of a hipster to their readers.
The hipster already was an anti-movement to the metro. The man became a man again. Sun-studios, picked eye-browes or shaved chests – all in all a no-go for the hipster. ‘Lumbersexuality’ is therefore no new anti-movement to metrosexuality, as it is celebrated in the media, but simply a continuation of the hipster-movement.
Therefore an old, fat hipster, who is drinking beer the whole day and who is just to distinguish by experts of ‘gay bears’. Therefore: no ‘next big thing’!
