“If a gentleman is thick-set, he avoids spread collars.” -John Bridges & Bryan Curtis
A large necktie knot will suit very well with the spread collar, as the distance between each point of collar is relatively longer than other collars. The distance between the two points is known to be ‘spread’, hence the name given for this particular style. This style looks best on men with a thin angular face structure as the horizontal spread of the collar balances out with the vertical lines of the face.
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 .
The nature and atmosphere just feels more positive! What’s not to love about Spring?
With a bright festive season comes with a cheerful fashion!
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. Yes it may sound frightening for us men to try on something that bright in colour, but with the right button shirt and shoes, it can make us men look like gentlemen. The pictures below can provide somewhat a guide on what to wear with white chinos.
“Courtesy is as much a mark of a gentleman as courage.”- Theodore Roosevelt
It is true that in our modern society, cell phones can be of a necessity than a want. Life revolves around telecommunications. With the uprise of technology it is often hard for this generation to understand how to be etiquette in todays world.
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.
A gentleman understands that continuous use of his mobile phone indicates that he values his conversation on the phone far more than his company at hand.
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.
One thing that is great about sweaters is that there are many options in choosing what to wear on the inside. Sport shirts, dress shirts, polos and t-shirts can all be worn under the sweater depending on style of the sweater.
Once you have owned a black fitted suit, and would like to expand your horizon with formal clothing, I strongly suggest investing in a nice navy/blue blazer!
So why choose a navy/blue blazer you ask? Just imagine that you are invited to an event where suits are considered too formal and sport coats are too casual. A navy/blue blazer will be perfect for such an occasion! It displays a sense of professionalism yet it does not fall into the category of an everyday office protocol.
I was long due for a haircut, so I decided to go have a haircut in town. A friend of mine referred me to a barbershop called the Boys Club Barbershop, located at shop 141, Level 1, Adelaide Arcade. He had been hyping this place up, telling me I should check it out since they specialise in mens hairstyle. So here was my experience at BCB…
As mentioned in Shoes for Spring, I was on a hunt for a new pair of shoes for the Spring season. I accidentally stumbled across a store that was selling Milana dress shoes so I took my time to see what shoes were on display.
I just bought my first clothing from Witchery, and it was a great experience since I got my clothing at an incredible discount!
For readers who do not know this brand, Witchery is an Australian chain store specialising in women’s, men’s and children’s clothing along with shoes and accessories.
I always hear great reviews from women about this brand, saying how Witchery produces great quality clothing, and their design is sophisticated while stylish! So when I stumbled across a men’s store, I decided to go in and see what the praise was all about.
I was quite impressed with their selection of clothing. For the men’s selection, they were mainly casual wear. What drew my attention was the Wysteria Print Shirt. The patterns creates a vintage feel, printed with a broken vine design. I never had these pattern shirts before so it was a great addition to my wardrobe!
