With the many events you gentleman will be attending this Fall/Winter I figured it would be nice to recap on some of the basics… like how to tie a tie. Click HERE.

This guy loves to wear striped suits that aren’t just basic- and to many people multi-colored striped suits have always been seen as a “black” thing- yanno? Because these kinds of suits are the ones you see men like Steve Harvey rocking. And for that reason, many men stray away from the multi-colored striped suits so that they don’t fill the stereotype. But what you must realize is that English men rock these kind of suits all the time, the difference is in the fit. They wear their suits much closer to the body and that gives them a more polished, well-groomed look. And that’s what you should do. Quality solid suits are always best, but having a few multi striped in the wardrobe is great. Just be careful not to wear them so big- then you end up looking like a southern preacher- which is fine if that’s what you want… I guess.
1.) Club collars are haute. Club collars are really growing on me, I think they are my second favorite now to the cut-away collar. These collars really look great on men with athletic builds -epecially ones with big necks and heads:-)
2.) You must learn how to match without matching. Go into a store and just try out out different shirt and tie combinations… you don’t have to try it on- just put the tie on the shirt and see what you think. If you live in Atlanta, go visit a guy named Peter at Nordstrom in Buckhead- he has some of the sickest combos… and I learned from him:-)
3.) Tuck one shirt tail in and one shirt tail out. I mean really, I challenge you to try it out one day… then send me your pictures and we’ll have a contest or something to see “who wore it best, lol. I think this trend should always be worn with jeans and a thick brown belt… maybe a matte black belt will work as well.
4.) Go buy a plaid shirt.
5.) Brown is a masculine man’s best friend. David Beckham loves brown- brown is his black, and I love it. He always wears a brown belt and brown shoes (with a few exceptions). And I feel like that gives him a more rugged masculine look, and it adds to his swagger.
FYI: Some of you may be asking yourself “So what brand suits does David Beckham wear?”. Hugo Boss, Armani, Dolce & Gabanna, and I could speculate other brands, but I won’t at this time:-)
I was an ardent Treo user all my life up until about 1 year ago and I must say– no one, I mean no one tops the email capabilities of the Blackberry… and that email capability combined with the iPhone swagger is enough for me to keep it home. The sexiness of this phone is ridiculous, check it out here.
But just out of curiosity has anyone gone from a Blackberry to an iPhone, if so, which is better to you and why? And let’s keep it real please:-)
