Rocking neutrals today and decided to add 2 focal colors, teal and orange. After three layers later I think I found one of my favorite Spring looks. This is the perfect look if you don’t want to throw a heavy coat or jacket on. The knits are from Uniqlo and 100% cashmere which helps a lot with the gusty winds we are getting. My new timepiece from the Rankani collection. I decided on a tan -almost suit look with this sand colored blazer and slim cargo pants.
Everyone always asks about this bag assuming its designer..nope! Its from my local hardware store (sans the tools). If you don’t need to spend tons of money on a designer CANVAS bag, don’t! My navy suede loafers complete this look with a accented orange sole. While I can’t complain about the weather because it better than ANYTHING we’ve suffered from this winter I must say it does feel good to layer with out removing tons of jackets and coats.

Seems like I won’t be the only one wearing brights during the winter next season. Thomas Pink displayed some of my favorite colors and combos at their Fall/Winter ’14 preview.
Top favorites from the Fall collection:
-Blue/ Orange combo..hell, every combo!
-TARTAN! andddd bright colors together = perfect
-Turtle neck under the shirt combo (done well). Maybe an older look to some but I was inspired by this look ever since National Lampoons Christmas Vacation #tbt for ya!
-Last, the grey window panel suit! Just sickening. Job well done to Creative Director, Florence Torrens.
-Wool pocket square. Great addition for the season.
If you want to know if my closet threw up on me the answer is YES, YES it did. But a beautiful creation came out of this, a perfect mix of prints and a well tailored look actually. Im not doing anything innovative here today, I just noticed I had 2 separates in my closet that needed a bit more love. Today I put them together and called it a printed suit. Suit: Topman Shirt: Louis Vuitton Watch: Topman Socks: Soxxy Shoes: Beckett Simonon 3 simple ways to pull off the trending printed suit look:
Go hard or go home
If you’re going to do the printed look keep it bold, if the pants have a very small print and the jacket has big bold prints it just looks un-porpotioned. Not in a high fashion type of way, in a weird way.
We all know a suit can’t be 100% perfect but 2 bold prints and a ill fitting suit together is just breaking all the rules. If you are going to take the risk make sure its sleek fit.
A white shirt
A white shirt will break it all up. End of story
I understand that this can be too much. Try a printed blazer and pair it with black jeans or dark denim at first.
Would you try it out? What colors would you stick with? I think I will be trying it this Spring/Summer. Sound off down below!
Beau Homme presents their Fall/Winter 2014 collection.
Finally a collection that makes you think! Think about life in the 21st century, and the changes of our generation.
Designers George Bunker and Justin Mansfield wanted to convey the disconnect between human communication. Its true, we don’t interact with each other anymore like we used to. The world of texting and not picking up the phone to call someone is considered the social norm these days.
There are a couple of key notes I took away from the witty collection.
-All pieces were handcrafted
-They worked with details that already exist
-The overgrown belt loops on the pants was one of my favorite details
-Each piece tells a story of the social disconnect in the 21st century

The Haspel Fall/Winter 2014 collection echoes the legacy of its founder, Joseph Haspel Sr., while advancing the style of the Haspel man. The collection includes seasonally-appropriate variations of the iconic seersucker suit, outerwear and expanded sportswear and tailored suiting categories designed with full-bodied fabrics in a warm tonal range for the cooler months.
Im all set for Spring, besides I dress with color all year-round. Today Im wearing one of my favorite jackets with a Everett Tie to compliment it. This tie is pretty different and one of the first ties I owned equipped with a different tail pattern. Even though it was my first time wearing one of these I refused to play it safe, I love color too much. I paired it with a extreme cutaway gingham from .
Im wearing my favorite slim fit cargo pants from Uniqlo which they no longer sell :/
I ended up giving them away because they became too unstructured. This timepiece is by Rakani. Last but not least these power shoes from CAT footwear. Im wearing 5 different colors in this look, sounds like a lot but as long as its visually appealing it works!
Founded in 1910, Budd Shirtmakers are certainly a tailor with a fine and historic reputation and it just so happens that they are also one of the UK’s and, indeed, the world’s most respected purveyors of men’s dress shirts and have been dressing London’s sartorial elite for over a century.
