Best Workwear-Streetwear Hybrid Brands for Men

Workwear, to some degree, has always been intertwined with streetwear.

Rather, pieces like Dickies’ work pants, Timberlands, and chore coats were just there […]

If you’ve gone jean shopping over the past few years, you might have come across selvedge denim. Without knowing much about it, it looks woven and feels sturdy, yet often has a raw, broken-in look to it. And, with the accompanying cost, you might place it in the same category […]

Best Dressed Men at the 2018 Emmys

Awards shows are like an inverse of the bird world. While the ladies get to choose from an entire world of colour, the men are their dull counterparts, blending into the background wishing someone would ask them who they’re wearing. That might have been the case at one point, but […]

How to Style Smart Style Gym Jogger Sweatpants for Men

Five years ago, if you would’ve said “Jogger pants will be a menswear staple,” most would have laughed. They looked like retro activewear, had an awkward pegged silhouette, and their wider, occasionally drop-crotched style didn’t quite pair well with anything. In short, they epitomized a single-season novelty item.Joggers from TopmanJoggers […]

5 Tips for Wearing Casual Suits for Men

Every couple of decades, suits as a casual item return. Your parents might have had a leisure suit, complete with flared pants and a matching polyester jacket, in the ‘70s. By the ‘80s, that would’ve been traded in for one with big shoulder pads and tapered pants – and for […]

5 Essential Pieces of Men’s Jewelry

by Ivan YaskeyMen’s jewelry’s essentially a style conundrum. In terms of flashiness and opulence, it’s not even close to women’s, but even when minimal, it’s rarely essential – save for a few pieces. On the other hand, beyond ties and pocket squares, items like bracelets and watches give your ensemble […]

What’s a Safari Jacket, and How Do You Wear One?

Menswear’s no stranger to military-influenced fashion, both with current trends – olive green, camouflage, and utility jackets – and more timeless pieces, like flight jackets, trench coats, and aviator sunglasses.

Men’s Style Guide to Wearing Wool in Summer

When it’s hot out, why make yourself sweat? It’s logical, then, to avoid heavy materials and saranwrap-like fabrics: No down jackets, nothing waterproof, and definitely not wool or a sweater. Yet, Spring/Summer 2018 collections have made the case for season-flexible dressing: knits that work in summer, and lightweight pieces for fall […]

How Denim Got Revived in 2018

By: Ivan Yaskey For years, you had two choices: jeans for casual days, and khakis for the office.

Is Dad Fashion Here to Stay?
