FASHION: Summer Suit Selections from MEXX

To me, there’s nothing like coming out the house in a fitted suit. I’m an individual that feels a reserve of suits, should be part of a mans wardrobe for any “casual” occasion. One of my favorite places to shop for “casual” suit attire, would have to be MEXX. Their suits always seem to have a comfortable fit, captivating style and always provide that sophisticated look. With it being summer and some gentlemen may have some weddings or special occasions to attend, here are a few choices you may want to add to you collection:   Suit 1: A nice polished grey suit perfect for business or outing. Worn with a stripped shirt with a silk tie in the shades of blue and plum. Black shoes would go best with it. Suit 2: It being summer time, substitute the traditional black and add a tan suit to the collection. Accompany it with with some pale blues and some faded purples. Brown shoes would be your best bet with this. Suit 3: A great summer look for the work place and beyond: a textured suit worn over a striped shirt and silk tie.       Tweet

FASHION: Your GQ Spring Report!!

Here are some Spring2011 fashion trends for men: Trend #1: The Linen Suit Wrinkles look good on men, so a nice linen suit is fresh and breathable for the spring/summer.    Trend#2: The Sailor Striped Fitted Sweater This is a great casual look.  Its a good light weight long sleeve and should be paired with a pair of dark wash jeans and white clean runners (as shown in the picture below). Trend#3: The Micro-Check The micro-check is such a small checker on your shirt that from a far you can’t even tell.  This is good to add pattern to your look without going extreme.  I also want to point out the fitted suit and vest with this look- its a real thing!! Trend#4: The Weaved/Braided Belt. These type of belts are very in this season, however ONLY for the casual look.  Definitely can not be paired with a suit.  It is always a good look to contrast these with your outfit colours.  For example: with a dark pant, wear a lighter shade of belt and with a light pant you would wear a darker shade, and so on. Trend#5: The Timeless Watch We all know that you no longer look at your watch to check […]
