Menswear 2013 fall/winter tendencies – Modern Classics and “oldstyle” boldness

Menswear 2013 fall/winter tendencies – Modern Classics and “oldstyle” boldness

Suits look good on every man. They inspire self-confidence, elegance, earnestness, commitment – to me, men wearing classic outfits, are a total weakness. Because, let’s admit it, classic is never passé , no matter what.

Remember the saying, “Stay classy not trashy “ ? Well, this season’s collection is definitely following the rule.

Contemporary tailoring created a big impact – perfectly fitting dark suits and crisp white or dark blue shirts.A sharp, masculine silhouette enhanced by burgundy hues is now making headlines.

Here’s what they say – Tweed has been man’s go-to fall suit since before the days of Astaire and Gable. Those guys can’t take advantage of this slimmer, totally itch-free new version. But you can.

Moving on to cold protection – a set of coats and trenchcoats ready to make you look impeccably this f/w! An alligator fabric is totally daring ! It will make you look trustful, and especially prevailing !

A double breasted fur collar coat is totally imposing, at least this is the message I get. Military green color along with darker buttons, great combination ! Don’t you feel like e Russian “baws” ?

This mid-length wizard collar trench coat is definitely autumn time material ! Thick enough to help you survive until the first now, it will give you a detective appearance, with tones of taste in fashion !

Tweed is a very conscientious fabric. It does its homework very well  when it comes to cool weather. It’s also sturdy, which gives you a “firy” resemblance. Molds perfectly on your virile body.

Since we were talking about detectives, let me show you this “easy constabulary” collection of jackets.
In my opinion, they have a lot of the aspect of our dad’s cop uniform. And guess what ! They’re called – relaxed jackets.  All in all, they look pretty nice if you have style !

Moving on to leather and shearling items, what do you think about this absolutely fabulous leather panel knitted bomber jacket ? It’s fancy, elegant, stylish ! Yet, you can wear it with jeans or other oufit combinations, since it inspires overflow and a great fashion unleash.
I rate this with 5/5.

Quilts and puffers are a must for this winter. What if weather suprises us with a terrible coldness ? You must keep yourself warm yet, fancy ! Like a real gentleman does.

Statement Scarves

To complete the rough looks, add a scarf of your choice. As big as blankets or twisted up and knotted tight, a bold neckwear choice can make or break an ensemble.

Tailored jackets don’t offer too many options, but you can still chose from colors to fabric – so, what’s it gonna be? Velvet or hopsack wool ?

Knitwear stands up for women as much as for guys ! Mixed with a shirt underneath, you will give the “perfect guy” impression.

And, we’re getting to the most important part of the article: tailored suits!

Learn to suit up properly and everything else follows.
“Whether you’re an office guy who needs to look sharp for the competition, or a creative type who dresses up because he likes to, the suit is the basic building block of looking good. It’s a timeless, ever adaptable, sometimes maligned, but never improved uniform. Get the basics down and then you can lose yourself in perfecting the details—what the ever dapper Tom Wolfe once approvingly called the sartorial “mania for marginal differences.” And that’s when things get interesting”. That’s what the GQ men affirm ! Don’t you agree?

This is a classic fit. Be careful when chosing your shades, colors, tie patterns ! The cut of a suit is a product of two elements: the overall silhouette and the particular proportions of the man who will be wearing it. You don’t want to mess it up.

A slim fit is totally sexy! Who doesn’t look hot in a molded outfit, afterall ?
And if you’re lucky to have an athletic shape, then thumbs up for you !

The men from GQ magazine, are totally willing to help you chose the best suit. That is why, I’m attaching a few tips, so that every guy improves his knowledge in fashion.

A. Take It from the Top
A good suit should hug your shoulders, not slouch off them. Most guys think they’re a size larger than they are—say, a 42 regular instead of a 40. When buying a suit, go ahead and try sizing down. When you pull on the jacket, there should be a firmness to it. You should snap to attention and stand taller. If it doesn’t fit right in the shoulders, don’t buy it.
B. Lose the Flab
Think about the width of the sleeves. This is an obsession of ours at GQ. For pretty much every photo shoot, we have a tailor slim down the sleeves, trimming them of excess fabric. It cuts a mean figure.
C. Show Some Cuff
Your suit sleeves should end just above the hinges of your wrists, so a quarter to half inch of shirt cuff shows. It’s like the frame on a painting—the elegant finishing touch.
D. Taper, Taper, Taper
Your jacket should contour to your body. Have a tailor nip it at the sides. This will accentuate your shoulders—whether you’ve got strong ones or not.
E. Break It Down
We like flat-front pants, cut slim, with very little break at the ankle. This produces a long, clean look. Your pants should just clip the tops of your shoes, not bunch up over them.
Isn’t this inspiring ?

The next topic, includes casual shirts. If you’re more of a shirt guy, then you totally have to have one of these!

Now go ahead and throw on a tie. Whether you’re suiting up for the office or laying out a look for the evening, a tie allows you to pull together the disparate elements of your wardrobe with a touch of texture or complementary color. If you learn to do it correctly—balance the width of the tie against your lapels and shirt collar, find a knot that fits your face—you’ll have dressing right all tied up.

A Tie Is the First Thing People Notice.

“Nice tie!” That’s always what people say. Their eyes can’t help but go there. So while you do want a tie that looks great all on its own, remember, it shouldn’t be a novelty piece. It’s meant to speak to the rest of your outfit, not stand apart from or clash with it.

Length Matters…
Whether you’re six feet four or five feet six, the tip of the tie should hit right at your beltline— not three inches below it, not two inches above it. That is, unless you’re doing the whole short-suit thing. And then, yes, let the tie hang tight above the navel.

…And So Does Width
We like a narrow— but not superskinny—tie, about two and a quarter to two and three-quarter inches at its widest point. Much wider than that and you start to look like a congressman. This thinner width works both at the office and on the town, syncing up with any modern-cut suit.

We’re not going to leave shoes aside, of course.
I personally adore this pair of crepe sole shoes.
They’re absolutely glamorous – that pattern in the middle, is the cherry on the cake ! Also, the retro style keeps coming back !

These being said, my dear gentleman, I invite you to enjoy this season, as much as fashion allows.
