We dare anyone not to fall in love with these preppy cool time pieces. The refined and minimalist watches by Daniel Wellington are designed for the gentleman with classic sensibility. Our pick for everyday elegance is the Sheffield- the black leather band with gold rim is sleek and glossy, and works brilliantly with business or formal attire.
Gentlemen, gentlemen.. Wool is hardly a hot weather textile- even if it is cashmere. Warm climate dressing doesn’t immediately imply casual, especially in the context of an office environment. Choosing attire for these balmy, humid days is actually a simple proposition. You don’t need to change your style- merely need to adapt it to current conditions. For suiting, choose pieces made of lighter textiles and hues. If the office allows for more flexibility, we have sharp options galore; de-constructed jackets with short-sleeved shirt and tie combinations, and many, many chinos- in a striking array of colours. Staying cool, while looking accomplished is getting easier day by (scorching) day. Drop by the store or shop online for this season’s latest styles, not to mention our renowned Summer Sale.
Women have their purses, shoes, scarves and a million other chachkies that they carry, men on the other hand tend to be a little more refined and carefully curate what they’ll need based on the occasion. Whether you’re sitting pool side, hitting the gym, going on vacation or just heading in to work, each scenario requires a distinct set of accessories that help complete your look. From briefcases to coloured shoe laces, here’s your guide to some key men’s accessories you’ll need this summer, no matter where you’re going.
Normally the sartorial territory of ship captains and French film stars, the rarified double breasted blazer is hitting city streets in updated, more off-beat versions. The spring/summer trend is still ultra refined, but now works with denim (in a shorter length), work-worthy suiting, sleek social or imposing formal looks. The DB blazer elevates the simple to slick- there is an interpretation for every man.
Summer is here, but is your style game up to par? We’ve given you tips on the hosttest style for this season from colourful chinos, to double breasted jackets but what about accessories? As with all things in fashion, it’s all in the details and having the right accessories to compliment your wardrobe is crucial. From watches to bags, our team of expert stylists have put together a great list of must-have summer accessories.
Jenna’s Picks: Daniel Wellington watches are great for summer because they go with everything. From tee’s and jeans to 3-piece suits. They are lightweight, non-pretentious and come with an array of interchangeable straps. What more could you ask for?!
Susanna’s Pick: Anderson’s belts are a great alternative to the traditional leather options in the market. These playful colours are sure you help you stand out of the crowd and brighten up any summer outfit. Wear them with a nice pair of chinos, loafers and short sleeve button up and you’re set to hit up any rooftop party this season.
Mallory’s Pick: Lets face it men rarely wear rings. But when Vitaly Design offers them an option made of both steel and ceramic its pretty hard to say no! These pieces are great because they can be worn individually or stacked together. I personally love seeing guys stack the 2-finger ring with a single.
Sam’s Picks: With nonstop torrential rains hitting this city, we don’t blame you for wanting to get away. These weekend bags are great for quick trips to the cottage or mini road-trip to anywhere that isn’t here. And if you’re a fitness buff, you can also double up these bags for the gym. Let’s face it, you can do way better than those monogramed “gym” bags.
Shae’s Pick: Knits are a great alternative to stuffy silk ties in the summer! Knit ties add summer zest to an office suit or dressed down for date night with a sport coat. Every man should own at least one.
