As every spring rolls around I use to find myself jealous of all of the options that women had for colored pants. This year however, it seems like the men have finally caught up with pants like these babies I scored from American Eagle. Love the fit and the color, now of they could just make MORE color options.
What are you thoughts? Into the colored pants trend for men? Where’s your favorite place to score some of your own?
As I get ready each morning and reach for my go-to products that I can seem to ditch, I wonder what other products are found in guys’ Dopp Kits? I’m the kind of guy who will try just about anything but here are a few products I currently can’t live without. Don’t forget to share your favorites in the comments below and maybe I will give them a whirl.
Although my head is still reeling from all of the Golden Globes coverage and talk of the females in “glittery headbands” and “fish tail gowns,” I want to take you back to a place before the 2012 Golden Globes–to Milan. I got a chance to catch the Burberry Prosum Menswear show online and I must say, the impeccably tailored suites, and the use of velvet and duck head umbrella handles still have me mesmerized. Take a look at a few of my favorite looks from this year’s show. Photos courtesy of New York Magazine.
It seems as though man bags or what I like to call the “murse” has been an increasingly popular trend for men. Whether it’s a duffle, tote, or messenger bag, more and more men seem to be rocking the satchel as an everyday accessory. Personally, I love to look and have been known to rock a leather messenger bag into work but maybe I should start looking for a casual look for the weekends? Time to weigh in folks, what do you think?
Ever since Mr. Brad Goreski came in the scene in Rachael Zoe it seems as though everyone cannot stop talking about the bow tie. If any of you know me, you know that I too am a HUGE fan of the vintage trend. What I have realized however, is that it seems most people are either on team bow tie, or just don’t understand. Take one scroll through the men’s apparel Pinterest page or favorite fashion magazine and it is jam packed with gents rocking this neck wear.
It’s time for you to decide readers, are you team bow tie? Can any guy rock the trend? Tell us why or why not. We want to hear your thoughts.
This blog topic has been on my list for a few months now and ironically, when scanning the New York Times and sipping on my first cup of coffee (of the three I had this morning), I came across a trend story on the very same subject: men’s vintage watches.
I’m attributing this to my recent obsession with Mad Men and please, spare me the “how could you have just started watching” lecture. I just can’t get enough of which is ironic because currently I don’t own, nor do I even use a watch. I do however, think unique time pieces are the perfect way to show your unique style in a subtle way.
We’re also seeing more women ditch their tiny time-teller and opting for the men’s watch. What do you guys think? Love it? Hate it?
I like to consider myself fairly modest when purchasing footwear for every season. I like to keep it simple. This is why if you ever search my closet, or the back seat of my car, you’ll usually find: a pair of black dress shoes, a casual pair of moccasins (a’ la Eddie Bauer), a fun pair of Fred Perry’s (found on sale at Martin Patrick 3) and your typical male summer must-have, leather flip flops (American Eagle).
One pair I splurged on earlier this fall was a pair of Clarks Original Desert Boots. When I first got them I figured they’d go well with some dark denim and a button-down and now, I can’t stop wearing them. They’re the perfect boot to dress up or down and the fact that they’re always comfortable is an definite plus. I can wear these over and over and not get sick of them and I’m pumped to pair them with a flannel in the colder weeks right around the corner.
What do you guys think about these classics?
Spring is right around the corner and if you’re anything like me, you’ve already started to indulge in a little pre- spring shopping. There’s just something about the combination of white, khaki, red and navy that instantly puts me in the mood to find the nearest yacht and hop aboard (in my dreams). The warm weather may not be in full-force yet but here are 10 (because 5 wasn’t enough) of my spring must-haves for every guy. Ahoy matey!
In usual fashion, as December crept closer I did my best to avoid the pending doom most refer to as holiday shopping. As the snow fell and thousands of gift guides were created, I must admit, nothing was really impressing me or encouraging me to pry open my wallet and let the shopping madness begin. That is nothing until I came across a couple of items that inspired me not only because they look cool and I know my friends and family and family, but because the money I would spending would have a deeper a meaning. It would no longer be about how much I spent or how I was going to top the previous years. It was about that extra something that accompanied the gift, hope. I hope for those of you still stuck with the daunting task of finding the perfect gifts enjoy my very own gift guide for 2010. Without further ado, here is my gift guide that gives back.
Sophia Bush and Austin Nichols have put this album together after their visit to Louisiana and witnessing the destruction of the BP oil spill for themselves. For only $10 you can purchase this album (with featured artists like Damien Rice, Passion Pit, Vampire Weekend and more) and your proceeds will go towards cleaning the Gulf. Great music and a great cause. It doesn’t get any better than this.
2. FEED Projects:
This awesome organization sells bags, stuffed bears, scarves, backpacks and a few other accessories and builds the donation into the cost of each item.
Depending on which item you buy, you are purchasing school meals, books and other human necessities for children across in need. My description does not even do it justice so check this out for yourself, I promise you, you will be glad you did.
The Jed Foundation’s mission is to combat suicide among college students. It’s website states that “Suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students, and untreated mental health problems prevent thousands more students from graduating every year.”
The website has a number of different ways you can get involved or make a donation. It also sells a “love is louder” t-shirt for $30 (includes all shipping + handling) that aids in the fight against suicide among college students. With the recent suicides of youth across the United States I don’t believe I need to stress how important this issue is.
Although some of you may not agree with spending $10 on a water bottle, after reading some of the statistics on the website I think you may change your mind.
I myself used to attest drinking tap water over bottled water for reasons such as the taste or smell, but these water bottles have built-in filters (that last up to two months) that filter your tap water while you drink it! Just fill it up and be on your way.
If you’re shopping for those who already have their heart set on something, considering purchasing them an eGiftCard online instead of heading to the store for the plastic.
eGiftCards work the same as regular gift cards without loading the plastic card and this way, no one has to worry about losing it in their purse or wallet.
