Tony and Sadiki attacked DC's urban terrain in attire which guaranties for success on the journey. Follow us along this urban oasis safari as we past by some of the street art found in this up and coming DC neighborhood.

What is a safari without your trusty steed? During the recent economic woes; which still plagues some Americans, one of the industries hardest hit were motorcycles. Which made no sense to us. Motorcycles are cheap to own, operate, and maintain but we seem to view them as a luxury. While in other countries they are a main mode of transport minus the HOV perks. Go figure? But, just like a phoenix rising from the ashes, motorcycle sales are on the up and up. Which is a sort of bitter sweet thing. What you could once haggle down on Craigslist now sells for premium prices. Whomp Whomp. This two wheel mode of transport makes even the most daunting trip into a journey of epic proportions of nostalgic adolescent memories: of BMX bicycles with a playing card pinned to the spokes, or a .25 cent juice box jammed between the frame and the back tire. Vroooom!

While on a safari it is important to blend into the surrounding environment. So stay camouflaged. Like Seal Team 6 even after the smoke screen clears Sadiki will then just blend into the background of this lush brick jungle seamlessly.

Who said you can't look fly while undergoing shenanigans? Some say Tony was born with a "Kids do not try this at home" disclaimer and here we see just why.
Pink knotted cuff link, printed handkerchief, purple scarf, vintage military garb, and a camo print German Half helmet all summed up perfectly by the graffiti in the back. DC!

Just because its called "Army Green" does not mean you can't add some color to it. By all means play with colors, tones, shades, and textures. With his lapel cuff link lapel pin and pocket square watch strap, Tony shows us we do not have to restrict items to their intended purpose. You bought it so own it.
