WHAT YOUR FAVORITE SHOES SAY ABOUT YOU

Have you ever stopped to think about the stories your shoes would tell if they could talk? One of them would likely be how they wish you would shine them more often. Every other story, though, would be about you. Footwear says a lot about a man’s character and personal style. Science has even gone… read more

RULES OF: ACCESSORY MATCHING

Accessories are the easiest way to take any ensemble to the next level. A classic watch in a metallic finish gives your look a touch of refinement while a tastefully patterned tie lets your personality come out without you having to say a word. As great as accessories are, it’s easy to go overboard and… read more

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT POCKET SQUARES

We wouldn’t be the first to admit that the concept of a pocket square is a little weird. How on earth could a functionally useless piece of fabric nested inside a pocket be considered “style,” you ask? For some men, pocket squares are still, understandably, regarded as foreign territory. Often times, men who don’t don… read more

HOW TO WEAR A BOLD SUIT

You’ve got your suiting basics down. In your closet, you’ll find tailored charcoal, navy, and khaki suits. Although these suits will take you through the seasons, it’s time to take it the next level. Fall and winter call for heavy, textured fabrics. Spring and summer, on the other hand, encourage you to go bolder. We’re… read more

TREND SPOTLIGHT: DESERT BOOTS

Shoes are, arguably, one of the most (if not the most) important part of your outfit. Not only do they serve a practical function–protecting you from the elements, amongst other things–but they also have the added bonus of making a strong statement about your style. Shoes are one of the first things that will catch… read more

HOW TO ROLL YOUR SLEEVES: 5 FOOLPROOF WAYS

Sun’s out, guns out. As the weather gets warmer, we’ve got rolled sleeves on our minds. Historically, the act of rolling up one’s sleeves has been a symbolic gesture of “getting down to business.” Whether a man was gearing up to perform physical labor, getting ready to throw a punch, or preparing to relax with… read more

6 TAKEAWAYS FROM MEN’S STYLECON

This year, we had the opportunity to attend an event that attracts men’s lifestyle businesses, top content creators, and menswear enthusiasts alike from all over the world. The event in question? Men’s StyleCon, hosted by RealMenRealStyle’s Antonio Centeno and I Am Alpha M.’s Aaron Marino. What started as a one-day gathering in a small brewery in Orange… read more

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE? SPORTS JACKET VS. BLAZER VS. SUIT JACKET

If you’ve been following this blog for a while (or even if this is your first read), you probably understand–or are hoping to understand–the emphasis on details when it comes to dressing well. You have an understanding of the foundation behind layering clothes, you take interest in the variety of available suits out there and… read more

WHAT YOUR CHOICE OF COLOR SAYS ABOUT YOU

If you’re like most of us when we’re getting ready in the morning, you might just reach into your closet half-asleep and throw on whatever’s closest. We get it. Choosing certain colors to wear on any given day isn’t really the first thing that comes to mind.  Going for whatever’s close (or whatever’s clean) is… read more

THE BEST AND WORST MENSWEAR TRENDS, ACCORDING TO THE EXPERTS

We’re well into 2016 by now. You’ve most likely already made (and broken?) some resolutions for the year, are we right? Regardless, if you’re like us, the beginning of each year is the time that we do a little bit of a touch-base with our style–a little bit of spring cleaning, so to speak. This is… read more

8 BOMBER JACKETS FIT FOR SPRING

Spring is just about upon us, folks. As the seasons transition, clouds might start giving way to sunny days, but the cold will still lurk for a while. However, we think that’s a good thing. It means we have a chance to continue layering for at least a couple more months. Cue the bomber jacket. The bomber, or… read more

ITALIAN SUITING ON A BUDGET

We are firm believers that a great-looking outfit has no need to break the bank. We know that there are suits out there that cost as much as a downpayment on a nice car, and shoes that are the financial equivalent of a brand new TV (and a couple movie rentals, too). If your budget allows… read more

3 SIMPLE STEPS TO LAYERING

If there’s one thing gentlemen like about dressing up more than anything, it’s adding layers to an outfit. Adding layers gives a look more depth, more color, and often times, more texture. As temperatures drop, it becomes more necessary to do so. Eventually, form and function need to find a middle ground. One needs to… read more

11 COLD WEATHER JACKETS UNDER $200

The holidays may be over, but it’s still freezing out, and every man needs a few warm, stylish jackets in his winter rotation. But after Christmas and New Year’s, it’s safe to say that none of us are looking to break the bank. While there are surely a lot of jackets out there that are… read more

STYLE RESOLUTIONS FOR THE NEW YEAR

We’ve all come a long way from the t-shirt and jeans look. It’s true. Before ties, we relied on a stack of graphic tees to get us through the week. It took some work. The process involved a lot of trial and error, and a lot of looking for and applying inspiration. And, it took… read more

WHAT TO WEAR THIS NEW YEAR’S EVE

Merry Christmas, gentlemen! Well, it’s almost that time of year again, the end of yet another year. Is it just us, or are the years going by faster and faster? Well, time flies when you’re having fun. The fun’s not over, though! You already have your New Year’s Eve party plans (right?). Now you just need… read more

HOW TO STYLE YOUR UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER

It’s a love-hate tradition. Every December, in what can only be described as a bizarre ritual in which Christmas and alcohol are tenuously linked together via festive holiday knitwear and deemed a fitting celebration, the ugly sweater party is a yuletide tradition with questionable origins, unseeming relevance, and a ridiculous dress code. You roll your… read more

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CUFFLINKS

Every now and then, it’s important to do something different with your daily attire.  If you’ve run out of ideas, give cufflinks a run for your money.  Why, you might ask? Because when done correctly, they can be just the finishing touch you need to top off your look.  For those of you that don’t… read more

WHAT YOUR FAVORITE TIE KNOT SAYS ABOUT YOU

If you’ve ever searched for different types of tie knots, you know that there’s a lot of veritable options out there. They come in all shapes and sizes, from the classics to the more adventurous types. Sometimes, the type of knot you choose will depend on the thickness of your tie’s fabric. However, we know most… read more

YOUR FIRST BESPOKE SUIT: HOW TO TALK TO YOUR TAILOR

There is something–no, many things–to be said about a bespoke suit. A bespoke suit flatters every wearer, never goes out of style, and has the power all on its own to imbue a sense of confidence and prominence in even the meekest of gentlemen. When you don a bespoke suit, you will instantly feel like… read more
