Suit Saturday: Let’s Talk About Vents

vents

When you think of a suit, you probably don’t pay much attention to what is on the back, unless you’re a huge tool. Vents, however, are something that you should pay attention to, because they affect your suit in its fit, shape, and style in more ways than you might realize.

Wii Bowling

So I’m sure many of you have played Wii bowling, but if you’re like me, you want realism to your fake sports. CTA Digital has you covered. Not only do they provide after-market gaming accessories, but they do so knowing that you want to be really apart of the sport you’re playing, but not enough to leave home.

Suits With Shorts, Florence

I am usually no fan of the Suit + Short combo, but if you have to do it then do it like this. This gentleman found by Plastic Choko in Florence’s Pitti Uomo (a conference and trade show of menswear) illustrates Italian Sprezzatura. I just think the hair doesn’t have to follow suit, but I shouldn’t really be talking about hair choices.

Our guest blogger this week is Chukwuma Morah, known to many simply as “Chu.” He is a recently graduated Industrial Engineer from the Rochester Institute of Technology, and is no stranger to the blog scene. He is a staff member to video game blog PushingPlay, runs his own blog Chu Boi, and has an always interesting Twitter. We sat down with Chu to discuss fashion, man-bags, and mullets.

So, forget the fact that he’s paired black with brown, though some do not have issues with that, but let’s just give credit where it is due.

This gentleman from New York has tossed society’s social pressures to the winds, because he does not just wear this Monocle, he owns it.

Suit Saturday: The Shawl Collar

Designers go through periods where they mostly begin to run out of ideas. This happened in the 70’s when they just made everything big (big lapels, big heels, big hair) and more severly with the 90’s (grundge and a terrible sequel to the 80’s) so would I say we’re entering in such a period? Not exactly. You see, when economic times are tough, all designers try and go “classic.”

What does classic mean? That is a whole other discussion, but for the purposes of today, it simply means that using more traditional styles and forms. Topman and J. Crew are currently pushing the shawl-collared jacket, like the one above (from J. Crew).

Beware, this jacket is complex and not a simple blazer, and if you try and wear it like J. Crew says, you’re screwed. Here’s why:

Casual Friday: The Leather Jacket

Now I know what you’re thinking, how can you talk about a leather jacket during the summer? Obviously, I’m not suggesting you wear this jacket during the day. In fact, you probably won’t wear a leather jacket most nights.

However, during those random cool summer nights, where a jacket is useful, skip the blazer for a day (I know, I can’t believe I said that either) and try something a little different: The Leather Motorcycle Jacket.
