Happy Men's Wear Monday!
Lets get down to business, time is of the essence! Lol! Lets talk about your time piece. The watch is one of the accessories you most have in your wardrobe. Actually, you need more the one. You most have an everyday watch, and a dressy watch a splurge usually a brand like Gucci, Omega, Rolex, Cartier, TAG Heuer etc.
Your watch tells so much about your personal. For one a watch tells how serious you are about your time.( It gives you BOSS Status). In a world of unlimited technology you don't have to wear a watch, but you should!! A watch completes your look, it makes you look professional, smart and mature. Grow up and get a watch, stop depending on your cell phone or the clock in your car. Get dress and don't forget your time piece.

Happy Men’s Wear Monday
Straight Jeans verses Skinny Jeans!
Guys you always have choice. You should never feel like you have to keep up with times by wearing clothes that makes you look or feel uncomfortable. Please remember it’s all about your personal style and taste. Skinny Jeans are not for every man. And "Yes" I'm Pro Straight Jeans, but if skinny jeans are worn right, on the right body type they can be fashionable, stylish etc. I do not believe there is an age limited to how you should dress, but I do believe your body type should have a lot to do with what type of clothes you wear. I know I'm always pushing you to be a fashion lions by this topic is super sensitive.
Some days I want to walk around the city with spare pairs of straight jeans for those guys that got it wrong that day. It's not their fault, it could be their egos, girlfriend or boyfriend giving them very bad advice. Or maybe they just got caught up in the moment when all the fashion sense was crushed by a pushy sales person in their favorite store. I really don’t know what happens, I just want to fix it. I’ve had this conversation many times with good friends and even total strangers. But some guys just don’t know the difference between Skinny Jeans and Straight Jeans.
The different between the two types for fits is the fabric content. Skinny Jeans has spandex in the fabric which allow the jeans to stretch and hug the body. Straight jeans has not spandex so no stretch. More and more men’s wear designers are moving towards stretchy fabric and a slimmer fitting clothes. Guys you can look just as stylish and on trend with straight jeans. My professional advice is to wear what makes you look your best. Try on both in your favorite brands and make your decision. Remember every jean is not for every man and your body type and personal style dictates whether you should wear Straight Jeans or Skinny Jeans. Now go and make the right decision.

Happy Men's Wear Monday!
Let me start off by saying "I had an amazing time at New York Fashion Week this weekend .
Back to business:
This post is a request from a loyal follower. In the 2 months I've been writing my blog this person has been encouraging and very insightful. We had a short conversation about suspenders a week ago and I thought great this is my next post.
I can't say this accessory is for every man, and most men don't even own suspenders. But you have to like suspenders or at least be willing to try them. Suspenders add a professional,fun and smart look to your wardrobe. This men's wear accessory has to be worn with confidence because this is a statement piece. One thing I can say about a man in suspenders is he definitely looks smart and handsome!

"Happy Men's Wear Day Monday"
"And Yes its Wednesday!" Soooo Labor Day wasn't Monday and Tuesday??? .....o!
Back to business, It's fall Guys! Fall has begun, it's by far the best wardrobe season of the year.
I know I've been going on about accessories, but for Fall I have to jump right in. My first order of business is the Fall Coat. This is not your warm snow coat, or your do everything in the cold winter coat. This is your "Fall Coat" it's your trendy, stylish, accent piece,in other words its your dress coat. This coat should be a brand you love and a refection of your personal style. This is your adult Swag piece, for those fall days when the outfit is just right .
Fall is Fashion! Get excited! In the winter when you layer its to keep you warm. Fall is the season to show of your style its not too hot and its not too cold , you can layer under your fall coat and Swag out. Don't be afraid to try colors & textures find your inner Fashion Lion". Remember a well dressed men is priceless!
