My love of hats were shared by countless men this past winter who wore an array of styles on the streets all around the world.
Therefore before saying au revoir to the season that calls for us to protect our heads in own stylish ways, I wanted to acknowledge some of the hat wearers that made milliners and mad hatters, like myself, happy spectators.
We have beanie, bobbie, trilby and floppy. Say them out loud and they sound like the names belonging to members of a music boy band. We have the baseball cap guy playing base minus the ball, and the newsboy making sure you get the hear all all all about it.
I see guys in blue and suits of white,
Colorful shirts and bright kicks that excite
Then I think to myself, what a good-looking world.
Style Clinic takes on another fashion dilemma for a man in need of some help buying his first tuxedo for his very own black tie wedding in the late summer. Mr.Porter‘s in-house experts gives three options to this sartorial patient which might be more than what the doctor ordered, but better to have choices than none at all when it’s your wedding.
The printed blazer and jacket trend women have been wearing just isn’t going anywhere, and the trend is being shared by the gentlemen walking besides us.

The ladies will always find ways to dress up the arms, ears and necks throughout the winter, spring and summer seasons. If it’s not with the use of statement making jewelry, the fabrics are put to work in forms of scarves, over-sized collars and bejeweled turtlenecks during the colder months.

The stand-up collars look sexier on a man, and the weight of over-sized neck-pieces can be held up much better by the strength of a man’s neck, but the turtlenecks will always be that piece of garment that looks good covering the necks of both sexes.
The men have started it. roaming the Italian streets glaring, walking with swag, charming those who pass by with smiles all the while dressed in high fashion.

I’m reseting my blinkers with some black & white photos which inspire me.
