Another year on the horizon and I don’t know about you but I’m excited for it and so thankful to what 2012 has brought me. New friends & new opportunities such as writing for this site. I learned a lot about style over this year and I hope I relayed that across my few posts. Only one way to end the year right is to bring in the next looking as proper as possible, so gentlemen below are a few ideas on how to do it right.

Depending on the type of event here are 3 options that should give you a basic idea of where my mind is going. Not every one is for the full get up but that doesn’t mean style should be lax as well…

Now some like to go all out but try to keep a little fun involved. Patterned accessories or not so normal fabrics should help you accomplish this…

Somewhere in between your look can lie as well but again fabrics and accents must be key. A full on hard bottom might turn you off so something like a dress boot can keep a little funk.

Quicktips:

  • Try to avoid too much matching – patterns, fabrics, colors.
  • Avoid too many loud colors – subtlety speaks louder.
  • Make sure of your size & fit – #1 mistake made by most.
  • Avoid logos with suits – Gucci, Hermes & such belts & patterns should never be paired with suiting. Keep it for when you’re on the ave.

Keep it fly & safe this new years night & see you in 2013!

 

As if shopping during the holidays is bad enough, shopping for the man in your life is a task onto itself. Luckily I’m here… one secret is anything you see a man have just get him more of the same. We like certain things and to have a lot of them. So take a gander and take heed its crazy out there this time of year.

Outerwear
Cold weather shouldnt be a deterrent to style. The options arent as minimal as you think. From varsity to snorkel, from leather to wool, from hooded to shawl neck keep him warm with the options below.

Frangrance
The smell of a person is very important. Women believe its just their scent that fills a room but we have our say as well and these fragrances will be a good opening salvo.

Timepiece
Any man without a proper watch is said to have no where to go/be. That said these should allow him to find a time for what he needs to get done.

Feet Heat
Shoe game proper? if not take a look from these choices. Customization, business, casual these will get things done.

Accessories
Whether its business or fun your gadgets need style too. So cases for phones & laptops as well as a nice bag/briefcase will keep things on point.

Simply put, every guy should have a three-piece suit this fall. This really buttoned-up silhouette can look so young and cool. Not only is the three-piece suit a nod to Savile Row and traditional tailoring at its best, but it’s one of the most versatile investments you can make. Remove the vest and you have a two-piece suit, take off the jacket and you have a pairing that’s still equally work appropriate. It’s the ultimate chameleon of suiting. Patterns, plaids, wools, stripes the availability of choices are endless. For a lil bit extra tip check member only sites like Gilt, Hautelook & Rue La La for great deals on suiting from major designers like Tommy Hilfiger, Joseph Abboud, Hickey Freeman, Ben Sherman & Michael Kors.

This week Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday, and I for one am not stepping out of my house to enter not one crazy store (Maybe BJs) my fingers will do the walking online. This is the beginning of the holiday shopping season so get to those deals while they last and while supplies are available. While some people shop all year round for the holidays, majority of the people, including myself, like to procrastinate. So for your viewing pleasure gentlemen , and ladies for your gentleman, I have procured some fashion black friday deals that can keep your style hot and your savings ice cold.

heart
Style is always evolving which in turn means new styles and companies will arise. I’ve been privy to see a major up & coming brand Heart Clothing make moves here in NY and across the nation. Created in 2008 their passion is to cater to all individuals who have a great sense of fashion & drive to set trends. The inspiration behind the line is “style & culture”.

When describing heart clothing’s style you would have to say that it is the product result when – clean cut urban apparel meets high end fashion. With every piece made we want to expose everyone not only to the brand, but to the culture that it represents.

Fashion is fun and always changing with the time. The only thing that is consistent with it…is change. So take this journey with us throughout these years and let’s continue to look good everywhere we go…

Unless you are blind you couldn’t miss the ascension of Heart with sightings on celebrities like Kemba Walker (NBA Charlotte Bobcats), Chris & Neef of the Young Guns, Wale, Terrance J (106 & Park) & Cory Gunz to name a few.

Be on the look out to see the growth of the designs and company from Heart Clothing. From tees to hats to cardigans they have what it is your looking for, label staples. Make sure to check the collection on the webshop. So tell me “Wear Your Heart @?”
