Even though Christmas is done, there’s one holiday that stylish men look forward to every January in Firenze: Pitti Uomo.
A question I get asked most often is where I get all my clothes. The second most asked question is how do I afford it. While its true dressing well can be expensive, it’s only expensive when you go for high end products and never shop sales. Here, I’m going to explain to you some of the tricks of the trade I’ve used to amass my wardrobe. Just remember that my style is very affordable.
Guys today rock felt fedoras, snapbacks, and beanies throughout the year, but there is only one type of material that works best for hats in summer: straw. These straw hats are guaranteed to keep the sun out of your face and help you look classy during these next hot months. But which one is right for you? Check out four of my favourite styles!
It’s time to share the spotlight this week by showcasing some of our favourite guys and their awesome style! Even though it’s hot we’re still able to look good. And that’s all that matters, right?
Look at the picture above. Jeremiah, on the right, looks like how I dress now, and I look like a guy who has no idea what he’s doing. I just slapped on some colors together with no regard to how it clashes or flows. People assume that I’ve always been stylish and always knew how to dress up, but they’re dead wrong. When I first came to college, I wore shorts and tee shirts and was a freshman who had no sense of identity and no sense of style. Eventually I realized that since I’m in college, I can be who I want to be and dress how I want to dress. It took a while, but I’m still not there yet. I’m constantly trying new things, tailoring my clothes, and I’m in this journey of self discovery with my style. However, there are a few things that I’ve learned since my freshman year that would’ve saved me so much time in being who I am.
Here at SxS, we want to show you a variety of personal styles so you can see that while most of us do dress up, we do it in certain ways that make it distinctly unique to us! For this feature, we took some pictures of what the Team and some contributors were wearing this past week and made a post! Let us know which your favourite outfit was!
Last week, it went down to 70 degress in Southern California; something unexpected for May. We’ve been doing a lot of modern trends lately, but today let’s go back to the “good ‘ol days” and check out some classic vintage layering! Each of us has our own favourite era of menswear, and today we show you how the late 30’s and 50’s did it!
Here’s a short little post on something super important to do after buying a suit. Nothing is ever good “simply off the rack”. No matter if you got it at Goodwill, H&M, or a high end store, a suit will always need tailoring. Why? Because you’re not a mannequin, you’re you. You have a unique body type, so something that was mass produced will not automatically look good. For this post, we’re going to focus on the length of your pants.
With the exception of tuxedos, I believe that there is no distinction between “formal” and “casual” clothes; everything you own should be simply be articles to create any look you want. With a suit, you great two great pieces: the suit jacket and the trousers. In this post, we focus on leaving your jeans at home and walking out in your suit pants! Just because they’re suit pants doesn’t mean you have to dress fancy; you can dress them down!
