How Much Time Do You Have?

Juste Un Clou from Cartier

While this isn’t necessarily a men’s piece, the design is too cool not to post, and I believe it could be unisex, especially in silver. The piece is part of an homage to the 70’s and is paired with an exhibit that Cartier will be showing at their 5th ave Mansion - but the industrial design will be a theme that I believe will begin to emerge, especially in menswear as designers look for a way to marry strong men with smart fashion.

Penfield

Spring colors, layer over a suit for cool spring days at the office, or over a button down for a casual afternoon.

Moods of Norway

Soft pastel colors are very sharp this spring. These suits from Moods of Norway are a great way to liven up your color choices in the office this Spring/Summer. On the left, the light blue is a nice way to incorporate the trend of spring without stepping too far out of the box (though, if you are willing to pull this off in a soft taupe-red you are certainly 9Sharp). Pair it with a white shirt (spread collar of course) and dark blue tie for a classic look, or a dark purple, or navy shirt open for an evening cocktail. If you go solid on the shirt, try out a pindot or paisley pocket square with similar colors to give it some life.

On the right, the light grey window-pane suit reminds me of 1930’s style. The three pieces, the grey and white combo, and of course the bow-tie. But it’s updated with splashes of pastel blue and orange to keep it cool this summer. You could put a nice stripe tie on here to contrast patterns, but keep the stripes large to contrast the minimal pattern of the suit.

Edun - Linen Cotton Blazer

This royal blue is enhanced by the linen to give it a soft spring look that is versatile for both work days or Saturdays. Pear it with a light tan or grey sweater, like this Cashmere one from Uniqlo, in cooler temperatures to keep it classic.

Outlier - Doublefine Merino Cardigan

A company that keeps doing it right. Attention to fabric, the wool here is super-soft and looks it. Attention to detail, shawl collar cardigan - I’m not usually a big cardigan guy but this one still gives a masculine sillouette while retaining the light quality of a cardigan

Cole Haan - Evolution of the Wingtip

Great picture into how menswear has evolved, why the cyclical nature of style will keep now keep mens style a popular subject. On the far right, the Lunar Grand Wingtip is a super modern take on the classic style. A perfect example of why the rise of Menswear will continue to stick - we pay homage to our heritage, while updating the function
