In one more day summer will be over, which means that the days will get shorter, the nights will get longer, and the weather will get colder.  An added benefit of this seasonal change is that we can go back to layering pieces once again.  Don’t take it the wrong way, I love my summer days of wearing absolutely nothing but shorts, but having an oxford with a camel colored crew-neck sweater and a jacket on top makes my heart warm.

As far as jackets go Henri Lloyd has done it again with their Barton Button. What I enjoy about the brand is that obviously fashion is important to them, but so is being practical. The dark navy outer lambswool is the perfect color for fall, but will also keep you warm when you’re running those holiday errands

Check out the Barton Button or more looks at Henri Lloyd.

When you think of Spring and Summer, most think of bright colors that stem from the blossomed flowers: not Krane. The label has instead decided to primarily use the colors grey and black with their Spring and Summer 2011 line. It’s not at all a bad thing, since the design is so crisp, it throws the color scheme out of the mind.

Nike. Adidas. Converse. For the past decades sneakers have been a staple in American fashion as much as white t-shirts and blue jeans. Just like apple pie, everyone in America had a pair and wore them with pride. The past couple of years have seen an influx of sneakers hitting our closets; partly because of the retro 80’s comeback and partly because the design aspect of creating “high fashion” sneakers have exploded. Although, sneakers will not be leaving the American mindset anytime soon there is a new revolution appearing in the way of dress shoes.

The word “dress shoe” brings to mind boring church services or never ending weddings, but this post is focusing on brogues and wingtips. Brogues are low heeled, leather bound shoes that originate from Ireland. They are often viewed as the country man’s shoes and are less formal than their counterpart: the oxford. Nonetheless compared to sneakers, they are screaming high-class. The colors are often limited to all black, a light chestnut color, and an almost chocolate brown. The name wingtips come from the “W” design that appears on the tip of some brogues.

I think the lookbook and the fashion describes itself.

All brown everything.

Fashion label, Nom de Guerre–translates to “war names”–, have taken their name seriously with their Fall and Winter collection. Their lookbook named “Countdown to Violence” has a deep militaristic theme, as well as a slight  “black power” undertone. The collection is filled with form fitting blazers and suits that seems to be paletted in all black.

It’s not everyday that you see fashion being inspired by hunters, but then again, in the age that we live in creativity can be inspired by any and everything. Only the Japanese brand could make the Elmer Fudd’s in the world feel cool. The collection is filled with that forest pattern, skinny jeans, cardigans, oversized sweaters, and mountain boots.

We’ve entered a world where accessories are key to creating originality in terms of style. Unfortunately for guys, we only have 3 accessories that are seen as acceptable and even with these three, we are not allowed to go over the top with them. What are these three you ask? Watches. Necklaces. Rings. What makes it irritating is that these “accessories” have alternative uses than just being stylish.

With watches it is seen as more of a tool than an accessory. Watches are meant to tell time, even though we have thousands of technological innovations that do the same thing. Rings mostly symbolize things, whether it’s our class ring or wedding ring. It’s only necklaces that can be seen as a true accessory.

Once again guys are out of luck.

Then entered the brooch.
