White Pants for Men

Spring and Summer 2016 calls for a crisp pair of white chinos. They were all over the runways for SS16 Menswear. We found the three best ways to wear them.

Get Nautical: A navy striped shirt sends a nautical message and works great in a casual cool environment. Perfect date night wardrobe.

With Denim: Brunello Cucinelli scores big pairing a denim shirt and navy blazer. The canvas sneaker sans socks create a cool casual look.

With your favorite Tee: Pair the white chinos with a thick, crisp white tee and seafoam blazer. Any blue or green hue works well with white.

Men’s Winter Fashion Faux Pas and Fixes

In dressier settings some fashion crimes can easily be committed in the colder months due to the fact that well, you are flipping cold! Rather than staying under the blankets until May, here are common winter fashion faux pas and the fixes for style redemption.

The crime: Your favorite puffy coat. There are other ways to keep your torso warm.

Sure, it is warm but it is not suited for a dressy occasion.

The  dapper fix: Layering a vest under a tailored wool coat.

Style with layers is possible.

The crime: A pom-pom beanie.

I mean, really Bradley?

Although we love Bradley Cooper’s style normally, the pom-pom was a no-no.

The dapper fix: A newsboy cap or fedora. Keeping the head warm and the look smooth for years to come.

The crime: Mix matched ski lodge accessories.

Time to put away the ski gloves and collegiate beanie and accessorize like a man.

We also love our North Face gloves but save them for the slopes.

The dapper fix: A tailored wool coat combined with a nice pair of leather gloves and cashmere scarf.

What Style of Custom Pants You SHOULD Be Wearing

So many men focus on getting a great fitting shirt but often overlook the fact that a great fitting pair of custom pants may be the easiest way to look as if you have lost 10 lbs.  Did you know that some men should avoid pleats while others should never go without them? I will break it down for you not by body type, but by what look you wish to accomplish.

For those men who want to appear longer and leaner, there are a few simple ways to achieve this with a pair of custom pants. If you want to appear taller, you will need to first opt for a flat front trouser or at the most a single pleat in the front.  The flat front offers the illusion of a more streamlined and tailored fit and leans to a more modern look. Those who want to appear taller also want to opt out of a cuff at all. The cuff tricks the eye into shortening the body even more. If you truly feel you need a cuff, ask for a very short cuff. 1 1/4 inch cuff will suffice.

For those of you who wish to add a little visual meat to your bones, you want to go for the pleating and avoid a flat front. A pleat creates the illusion that you are fuller than you actually are at the waist and thigh areas. Avoid a boot cut and make sure to go for a cuff. Again the cuff creates a shorter and fuller look which can be needed if you have long legs coupled with a shorter torso.  This will help you appear more proportionate.
