To all you shoe aficionados, Sully Wong is back with a brand new sneaker for your collection. Inspired by 1830’s Scottish Master Weaver H. Tweed best known for the creation of the handwoven Scottish Wool fabric Tweed. The leather / Tweed fabric combination Hi-Tops highlight the subtleties and design lines of the time, and are reflective of the immense care and attention to detail that Sully Wong is known for. Easy to wear, these kicks can be styled down with a great pair of nudie’s or dressed up with a slim modern cut suit like the ones from Tiger of Sweden.
Inspired by ‘70s style active wear, Champion’s reimagined (with a little help from Todd Snyder) line is classic athleticism made modern. The brand’s slick pocket sweatshirt is a surefire hit. Supremely soft cotton, side gussets for comfort and raglan detail work the sporty trend- pair with rolled chinos and kicks for a completely current look.
Cut for an athletic man who prefers a slim fit, Circle of Gentlemen’s quilted, hybrid blazer strikes the ideal balance of style and comfort. An impeccable layering piece, the contrast collar, printed liner, pocket square, and elbow patches work wherever needed-just add an Oxford shirt, chinos and glossy derbies for the office or go off-duty with vintage denim and slouchy knits.

Quilted blazers are one of the hottest trends this season and one of the most versatile pieces you could own this Fall ’14 which is why we picked this Sawyer Pads Blazer by Circle Of Gentlemen as our item of the week. They work great as a regular sport coat, but also double as the perfect transitional outerwear piece. Below you can see two different executions of how we’d wear this jacket by Circle of Gentlemen. One offers are more traditional formal look, while the second is better suited for more casual/social engagements.
- Having a few choice plaids in your wardrobe isn’t a bad thing. They allow you to infuse your outfit with some great character/colour without going overboard.
- We know that guys are still having a hard time with this whole print-on-print thing, which is why we purposely chose our tone-on-tone strip pant from Hiltl for this outfit. The dark shade works to anchor the whole outfit while still giving it some depth.
- Last but not least, try investing in a pair perforated dress shoes. They are a great alternative to the traditional brogues and oxfords of the world while offering the same amount of finesse. And don’t worry, perforated doesn’t mean that the world of guck will come pouring into your shoe.
Gotstyle’s private label burgundy tuxedo jacket is ultra accomplished in its level of Bond-esque cool. The contrasting shawl collar, lean profile, four button detail at cuff, front flap pockets and fine wool fabrication allude to luxury. The graphic hues are very noteworthy and sartorial forward.
How To Style It
Tuxedo jackets often come with baggage, meaning that there are a lot of pre-conceived notions on how, where and when you can wear it. Most of these predispositions revolve around formal occasions like galas and black-tie affairs and though this may be mostly true we’re here to spice things up. Here’s our take on how you could re-invent the classic tuxedo look with a few choice variations.
- Start with a mirco-print shirt vs a classic white tuxedo shirt. It’s an easy way to add character and depth while still maintaining a polished look. Not to mention, micro prints are one of the biggest trends this season.
- Pair that with a self-tie bow tie because quite frankly no self-respecting man should buy a ready-made bow tie. Trust us, when you learn how to tie one you’ll never go back.
- You can thank Kanye for this one, but seriously leather pants are all the rage this season and the perfect accent to this modern tuxedo. This pair by Zanerobe offers the perfect balance between streetstyle edge and sophisticated fun.
- Complete your modern tuxedo look with a timeless classic- patent leather shoes because they are always appropriate.
