The Lanvin for H&M collection looks pretty amazing. You can find additional info and pics here. Does anyone know which select stores will carry the line? I’d love to get my hands on the navy tux and some of the colorful shoes.

Band of Outsiders 2011 Spring/Summer Collection

with one comment

 

I’ve been hearing great things about Band of Outsiders for a few years. They are supposed to have a great fit and good quality. In terms of style, this is one of my favorite brands right now, and I need to take some time to check them out in a proper manner. They tend to more expensive, but they’re known to be a brand you can build a wardrobe around, which makes it all worth it. Check out the rest of the collection here.

Fall Into Style

leave a comment »

I just ran across a great article on Valetmag.com regarding what is going to be hot for men this Fall. The 4 brands previewed, Club Monaco, Gap, Banana Republic, and J. Crew, and classic staples for every season, but they’ve got some great suggestions for Fall. My personal goal is along the lines of what J. Crew’s Frank Muytjens’ put so nicely, “a mix of utilitarian and dressy, distressed yet clean.”

Cool: herringbones, flannel shirts, slim-fit khakis, thermals, tailored overcoats, slim cargos, boots

Un-Cool: boot-cut jeans, baggy clothes, ‘overly graphic blingy’ tees, square toe shoes

Over the years, I have bought a few custom suits and shopped for shirts and ties on the famous Jermyn Street in London. As I started to build my wardrobe, I was always looking for the next accessory to enhance my look. First, I invested in Cole Haan shoes, then I moved on to custom cuff links, and the obsession grew. About a year ago, I read an article about socks and how to add a splash of color to your look. I was intrigued, so I looked into it.
