Let’s Hear It For The Boys

In all things related to personal style we are so often inspired purely by what’s walking down womenswear runways that we forget the boy next door.  Lucky for us, Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist, has kept tabs on some of the most dapper dons out there.  Enjoy!

Mens dressing is simple.  In order to be a well dressed man you have to have the proper fit, invest in basics, have a pair of signature sunglasses and own a great white shirt, all of which can easily apply to the ladies.  Here’s a look that plays with the trend but still keeps an undeniably girlie sensibility.
I love a look that plays with texture, partiularly for fall, and in this one you hit all the bases.  The velvet Stubbs & Wooton slippers I’ve been coveting for a year now are actually unisex and look adorable paired with the leather shorts or with a pair of skinny jeans and a sweater for a more casual look.  The polka-dot tights are a nice contrast to the tweed and solid mix cropped jacket with is a nice departure on a classic black and white tweed basic.  The bow for the hair is a play on the bow-tie while the green bag and chunky jewelry complete the look.  The wayfarers for chicks, well that’s a finishing touch.  We can stand to learn a thing or two from men in the home front as well.

Men tend to take pride in their mixology skills and not that, that isn’t a highly important trade, it isn’t just want their making that counts, but what they are making it in.  This crystal set of barware, available at The Well Appointed House, have a timeless sense to them and just the right balance of delicateness and masculinity. 

 A perfect gift for a young couple starting out or a great addition to your entertaining tools.  This set embodies the idea of male dressing: simple, elegant, high quality pieces you’ll have for life.

Best part about them- no tailor needed.
