Spring is here! The flower plants will bloom adding beauty to the environment. A bright sun will radiate from the sky making the days longer and warmer .
I am not telling you to go crazy and wear clothes with bright fluorescent colours, but I am merely stating to wear colours that are subtle yet makes you look vibrant.
Unlike women, many men tend to stick in their comfort zone when it comes to fashion. I suggest men not to limit themselves and go explore their horizon. But remember, the rule is to keep it simple and neat.
One thing I like but haven’t seen much are men in white slim fitted chinos.

One thing all gentleman hold true is that a gentleman knows how to make others feel comfortable. With that in mind, when having company, a gentleman should not be on his cell phone.

One thing I love about chilly weathers is the chance to wear sweaters! Yes sweaters may seem quite common and boring to some, but with the right pants, shoes, shirt and accessories, all these factors can compliment on plain sweater turning it into a classy, neat and tidy look.

However some clothing styles never really dies out. Most of these long lasting styles have something very similar to one another. It’s their simplicity!
