Curated Vincero Collection | code ALPHA for discount on a COOL watch!
In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaMAaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro  is welcoming you to the 3rd installment of the alpha m. Store Style Breakdown. He's buying an entire outfit from ZARA then rating it between 1 (worst) and 10 (best) on affordability, quality, variety, and age-range. The total of the scores will give the Alpha M. Store Style Rating.

Alpha's only been to ZARA one time, and it's outside of his comfort zone. But that's what makes it fun! He's looking forward to trying something new. The place is cool, he says he loves the place, and he thinks that he'll go casual. The slim fit suits seem to be of good quality although he'll continue to shop at Suit Supply for these. The shopping trip was better than expected: denim shirt  $19.99, white Henley $9.99, chinos $29.90, wind breaker $35.99, and sneakers $29.99 for total of $125.86.

The outfit starts with the weaved tan shoes that are super cool. Overall, Alpha was blown away by the selection and the prices of Zara's shoes. The pants fit Alpha snuggly since they run slimmer. He also had to cuff them. He found a great white Henley that fits incredibly, a biker jacket that is comfortable & versatile, and a denim shirt that is a highlight for him. He was impressed with all that he's purchased. He gives the following ratings: affordability 7, quality 5, variety 8, age-range 7.

The store style rating 6.75

Vincero Watches

Vincero makes incredible and sexy watches. Alpha's been talking about them for the last year because their designs are incredibly beautiful with a presence. He loves his chronograph that boasts a white face, rose gold markers, and leather strap. He gets more compliments on this time piece than his Rolex, and the price is affordable. The blacked out Vincero screams BAD BOY and is one of the sexiest watches that Alpha's seen! Check out Alpha's curated Vincero collection. Every dude needs an incredible watch - with the discount, grab yourself one and maybe two.
