Givenchy Polo

We saw this on the runway, and we couldn't wait to see it up close.   This unique take on the striped polo, with a chest stripe, make you look like you have a better physique—It’s very masculine, very varsity-athletic, and makes you look like you have a broader chest. This is a little more conversational than wearing a plain black polo shirt.  

The price though is an eye popping $665, available at Mr Porter

Summer Eyewear from Mark McNairy x GLCO

Photo: GLCO

There seems to be no end in sight with GLCO's and Mark McNairy's ongoing sunglass collaboration and if they continue to look this good you'll find no complaints from us. Their latest style, the Pinehurst, takes a classic round frame silhouette and wraps it in a cured acetate frame that's available in three colorways. 
Of course, much attention was paid to the little details such as a metal bridge that's decorated in an intricate filigree and the frames are built with five-barrel hinges with real rivets. The frame comes in a sunglass with anti-reflective coated CR-39 lenses or you can go the prescription route with their optical frame.  (available at garrettleight.com )

First Look at Kanye West + Adidas Collaboration

Yesterday afternoon, Kanye West and adidas invited a select group of fashion insiders, media, and other notable industry figures to a clandestine showing of the first-ever collection between the brand and hip-hop artist/designer. The inaugural offering is officially called YEEZY Season 1, and while apparel is the focus of the collaboration, some footwear is to be seen as well. Mr. West seized the moment to formally introduce his adidas Yeezy 750 Boost (the high-top) sneaker, but revealed at this show are two different woven low-tops of the Yeezy Boost sneakers. Release dates for those models have not been set just yet, but the Yeezy 3 will officially release at select stores on Saturday, February 14th (adidas’ reservations are all booked).

Video unveil here.

Getting the Perfect Shirt Fit


If you’re a normal guy, chances are shirts made for “normal guys” don’t fit you as well as they should. (If you’re the type who has the exact proportions for off-the-rack shirts, though, we salute you, your genes, and whatever exercise program you’re following.) The trick of well-dressed men with perfect-fitting shirts has long been to take their button-ups to the tailor to get a few darts sewn into the back, at the very least. But anyone who’s spent much time at a tailor knows those tabs can add up fast. Unfortunately, custom-made shirts aren’t cheap, either.

But if you’re like most of us and off-the-rack shirts don’t give you the “fitted” look you’re after, here are a few suggestions to get the perfect fit.

1.    Use Your Head—Check Your Neck: 
Some guys just buy their shirts in small, medium, or large. No wonder they don't fit so well. You should know your measurements—neck size and arm length—and not just for the sake of it. These

Strike a New Cord with Corduroy!

If you're looking for a new fall suit that will elevate your style, stave off the cold, preserve the integrity of your savings account, and make girls want to touch your triceps area while gently cooing to themselves, well then, compadres, it's corduroy time. Even though it's warm and sturdy, corduroy is affordable, because it's usually made from humble cotton. It also has those nifty ridges (your tailor calls them wales) that feel crazy-soft and make your look three-dimensional.

The Science Of Simplicity: Why Successful People Wear The Same Thing Every Day

Have you ever thought about how much time you likely waste deciding what to wear in the morning? It’s probably made you late to school or work more times than you can count.

We waste so many precious moments concerning ourselves with frivolous details. An outfit will not change the world, it probably won’t even change your day.
This is not to say that fashion isn’t important, as it has an immense impact on culture and, in turn, the direction of society.

Great Places: Smith Commons (DC)



Jerome Bailey's Smith Commons in DC (1245 H St. NE, DC) is one of those cool bars for artists, actors (from the nearby theatre) and Capitol Hill staffers.  A massive structure — three floors plus a deck --- is a great place to grab a drink, listen to great live music, eat or just people watch. 

The second and third floors are billed as the “Public House” and while they have tables for full dinner service, they are most definitely made for drinking.  The hot spot's decor takes inspiration from early-20th-century metalwork factories.The big cushy sofas and banquettes for lounging, make for an eclectic-cool than college hand-me-down chic.

Getting the Most Out of Your Sweats

With the advent of the new slimmer more tapered style sweats, men are saying good bye bidding to the old boxy sweatpants that you once settled for in department stores.   Outside of the new styles and tapered cuts, customers are also seeing a change in construction and fabrics as well. The new sweats are coming equipped with heavier weighted materials and high quality stitching, giving customers not only a more stylish look, but a well rounded look as well.

How To Wear
You can now get the most out of your sweats in the following ways:
  • Sweatshirts and pants are always a go to. However, you don’t have to look like are going to the gym if you aren’t. A pair of cashmere sweats and a vintage style crew and sneakers is a great way to pull off the “I may look like I am going to the gym, but I am really just going to an early movie,” look.
  • Say your friends want to grab brunch and you really don’t feel like changing out of your denim shirt, sweats and sneakers. What do you do? Grab a blazer to go with the sweats you already have on. A well fitted blazer always dresses up any look, plus, your friends won’t think you just rolled out of bed.

Alexander Wang Collection for H&M to Hit Stores Nov. 6

Alexander Wang’s collection for H&M, announced last April, is finally hitting stores (and online) on November 6. The designer had the following to say about the collaboration, which is inspired by performance-wear:

“I wanted to create a collection where most of the pieces have been designed from scratch," Wang said. "There are only a couple of items that are updates from past designs. Rather than creating affordable versions of expensive items, I wanted to design true performance pieces that are within the natural price points of sportswear of H&M, so we were able to create the best version of these pieces, through our vocabulary."

Stylish Men will be Wearing "Chalk Stripes" this Fall

Stylish men are dressing down their suits like never before, and no pattern is more suitable for a casual update than chalk stripes, the more audacious cousin to pinstripes. The thicker stripe, often broken up a bit by the natural textures of woven wool, has an earthier feel, which lends itself to pairing with sneakers, chunky sweaters, or even a crewneck sweatshirt.

Overall think of pinstripes: all business, and chalk stripes as all balls.
