An Hour Shopping Excursion

If you guys haven’t already been shopping, please be sure to go and pick up some quality staple wardrobe items “for the low.” Meaning you know those Ferragamos you wanted in September, but you didn’t get them because they were $500, well they’re probably more like $198 now and that’s well worth it especially if they’re a pair that you really really like. (For Example….) I’m changing my look and I’ve been in search of the perfect pair of riding boots- I had seen a couple of really nice pair but they were $300-600 and I mean I just simply didn’t have that to spend. I got lucky a few days ago and found a pair of Coach riding boots that were $600, but had gone down to $200 and I mean they’re absolutely perfect- and they were the last pair in my size in Georgia! The best deals are hands-down at department stores like Macys. So don’t let the new year come in without making atleast an hour visit to your local mall or shopping plaza.
List of things to buy if found at a great deal:
1. Boots
2. Blazers/Sport Coats
3. Leather jacket
4. (if you’re a business man) slacks and dress-shirts

(boot above: Kenneth Cole Lace-Up boot, originally $225, online for $139, can be bought in stores for even less range- $79-$129)

Barack Obama: Pictures of His Designer Choices for the Inauguration

So, just like they did for Michelle and the girls, WWD (Womans Wear Daily) asked designers what should President-Elect Barack Obama wear to the Inauguration. And here’s some choices below, which ones are your favorites?

Brooks Brothers

Brooks Brother



Kenneth Cole

Marc Jacobs


Paul Smith

Rag & Bone

Richard James

Salvatore Ferregamo

Sean John

Sean John 2

Tommy Hilfiger

Thom Brown

Tim Hamilton

View all 55 designs here.

Out of them all my favorite is probably the Zegna suits. But as you can obviosuly see its harder to pick out a man’s suit from designer sketches than it is to choose a woman’s dress. Men’s suits are all about the look, feel, and fit of the suit. The fabric used is a vital element and pictures just can’t give you an adequate view of them. That said, these designers did a pretty good job in individualizing their styles and clearly whichever suit he chooses will be exquisite.
