4 Classic Men’s Fashion Trends That Are Making a Comeback

4 Classic Men’s Fashion Trends That Are Making a Comeback

There’s a common belief that everything in fashion comes back around for another spin. It seems that’s never been more accurate. On one hand, there’s a part of men’s fashion that’s fixated on futuristic, apocalyptic streetwear. But the world’s best dressed men seem to be preoccupied with the high stylings of yesteryear. The following trends are taking over runways, red carpets and soon, a sidewalk near you.[...]



Transforming a Look from Casual to Dressy On-the-Go

Transforming a Look from Casual to Dressy On-the-Go

If you’re a busy guy, that means your professional and personal lives are firing on all cylinders. You spend your days bouncing from the office to happy hour and possibly from the golf course to a big meeting. Though it would be easy to wear the same outfit to every event in your packed day, that won’t work. Let’s say you’ve had an afternoon out of the office, and you’ve pared down your look to match the vibe. You’re wearing a pair of dark chinos, a pair of boat shoes and a plain white dress shirt. Your look is simple, modern and stylish. But you have a big meeting with a potential new client at 6. Your look is sharp but it’s far too casual for official business. It’s time for you to transform your look from casual to dressy while you’re on-the-go.[...]

Biggest Style Moves to Make Before Spring

Biggest Style Moves to Make Before Spring

Though it’s hard to believe, Spring is almost here. Punxsutawney Phil may have predicted 6 more weeks of winter, but relatively speaking, that’s not so long. With warmer weather just around the corner, there’s only a little bit of time left to nail the season’s biggest trends. It’s time to break out your Sherpa coats, suede Chelsea boots and cord pants before you no longer can. Soon, we’ll all be relegated to shorts, t-shirts and handsewn drivers with bare feet. If you’re at a loss for what sartorial moves to squeeze in these next few weeks, here are a few suggestions. [...]

A Guide to Successful Layering for the Colder Months

If you’re like most guys, you think a heavier coat is all that’s required to battle falling temperatures. However, an insulated outerwear piece is only part of the equation. There’s still a look underneath that requires your attention. When you pull off your coat, you could still be faced with challenges if you haven’t layered appropriately. What if the office feels like a freezer? You can’t head into your next business meeting wearing a parka. This is where proper layering comes in handy. During the day, you need the flexibility to adjust your look to the temperature [...]



Shoes Every Man Must Own

Shoes Every Man Must Own

Menswear has been going through a sort of bratty, experimental phase the last few years. Streetwear has seeped into every aspect of men’s fashion. Not even the refined style of Italy’s best dressed men is immune. But still, even though streetwear’s popularity is at an all-time high, there are several occasions in which sneakers just won’t work. Classic men’s shoes have been around for centuries because men always need to suit up. Whether you work in a traditional environment or you’re headed to a black-tie event, you’ll have tons of reasons to look your best. When it comes to footwear, every man should have at least one pair of the following styles in his closet.[...]



Why You Need to Downsize Your Wallet

Are you one of those guys with an embarrassingly oversized wallet? You know the kind. It’s thick enough to be mistaken for a novel. It’s packed with enough compartments and card slots to carry your entire life. It’s so big that your body tilts to the side when you sit down. If any of these statements accurately describe your wallet, it’s time to make a change.[...]



Tote Bags Are For Real Men: 5 Reasons You Need One

Tote Bags Are For Real Men: 5 Reasons You Need One

For the average guy, the thought of carrying a tote bag seems implausible. More than a messenger bag, the tote bag seems to carry a stigma—an implication that a man can’t be a man with a tote bag in his hand or hanging on his shoulder. Tote bags tend to place last when ranked among more traditionally masculine carryalls like duffel bags and briefcases. However, tote bags are for real men. These bags are for guys who understand the value of great fashion and the useful purpose of a well-designed bag. In fact, the men’s bag industry is one of the most profitable markets in business. It makes up a fifth of the luxury bag category, according to Fortune. These men’s bags, which several guys don’t see as men’s bags, are poised to break the $18 million mark by next year. If anything, those numbers should indicate it’s time to start paying attention. Guys who are leery about carrying a tote bag should heed the following 5 tidbits of information.[...]



Fashion Tips for Going South

Fashion Tips for Going South

You have a big trip down South planned soon. You feel prepared for the journey. You’ve brushed up on your favorite fishing story, worked out which chili recipe you want to try and you’ve got some insect repellant in your carry-on. However, another huge aspect of heading below the Mason-Dixon Line is the style. The South is home to tons of cultural traditions and those don’t exclude some great fashion. The weather tends to stay on the warmer side most of the year. In contrast with their Northern counterparts, men in the South are dressing for function but it’s not to keep warm; it’s to stay cool. If you want to make a big splash during your southern excursion, keep the following style tips in mind.[...]



Bison Leather: A Uniquely American Exotic Leather

Bison Leather: A Uniquely American Exotic Leather

Exotic leather has served as the beacon of true style and class for ages. From pebble grain calfskin to crocodile to ostrich, each type offers its own blend of distinct beauty and exclusivity. But one leather that deserves to be part of the conversation is bison leather. Admittedly, knowledge of bison is somewhat limited across the U.S. despite its firm North American roots. In May, President Obama officially declared the bison America’s first national mammal, elevating it to bald eagle status. (But don’t worry-the bald eagle is still the national animal; it’s not a mammal.)[...]
