Fashion Reflects You

Fashion has been now an important part of my life right after high school. Entering college made me realize how important my fashion will project my image and personality. And after trying many course of fashion styles, I came across with more of my taste, the urban style. Having perused a number of sites including Urban Male Clothing’s array of items I was particularly impressed with their range of DrunknMunky collection where I can be myself wearing them. I now consider myself as someone who wears contemporary t-shirts, striped or checkered long sleeves polo, and leather shoes. And I like what my fashion statement is. How about you? What is your fashion statement?

Find the Right Fit for Big and Tall Men

If you loathe shopping for clothes, you are not alone.  While many women may enjoy shopping until they drop, men rarely share their passion.  The problem is even worse if you are a man over 6 foot tall or wear more than a size 3X.  Department stores often don’t carry your size, or the clothing is not long enough. If you have trouble shopping for your size, here are some suggestions to make buying clothing a bit easier. Shop eBay.  You may not have thought to shop for new clothes on eBay, but there are some eBay shops that cater to big and tall men.  Whether you are looking for men’s jackets, blazers, dress pants, or jeans, they have what you need.  Some even offer a loyalty discount to return customers. Find a designated big and tall shop.  If you have one in your area, try to shop at a big and tall store.  There, you can find what you need.  If not, the manager may be able to special order items for you or …

Umbro X John Smedley

The past is often an inspiration for the future in relation to design. The ability to look back and re-create garments from distant days serves as a refreshing injection of originality; offering a fresh perspective on the current array of mundane ideas. This ideology is exactly what Umbro have used to rediscover two of its most iconic items with the helping hand of knitwear specialist John Smedley. Unearthed from the Umbro archives, the design team encountered two pieces from the 1940’s. The Field Sweater Originally a warm up top in 1948 – the re-make preserves most of its original characteristics from its predecessor, featuring a distinctively retro cut. Crafted from John Smedley’s sea island cotton in a 24 gauge knit, the updated model is available in a dark navy and features an intricate array of details. From ribbed cuffs to a mid-zip detail and a concealed pocket, the field sweater to has a distinctively functional edge. The Tangeru Fabricated from a 30 gauge cotton, this three button t-shirt features a round collar inspired by competitive …

Blogger Interview: Gerard Perez

Do you remember when you first became interested in fashion? I do! If my memory serves me right, I believe I got hooked up in dressing up when I was in my 3rd year highschool. I started buying branded shirts back then that sometimes leaves me with no money to eat lol. I became very conscious about how I mix and match my outfits so I guess it all started there.

Leading Mannequins

It’s an open secret that movie stars don’t dress themselves any more than your 2-year-old does. Think Tom Cruise knew what a shawl collar was before someone put him in one? Or that Ryan Gosling woke up one day in a Henley? (Well, maybe.) Which is why the most important person behind an actor’s image isn’t his agent—it’s his stylist. For our April 2012 special issue—The Style Bible—GQ sent Molly Young to spend a week with a Hollywood dresser to find out who picks the clothes that make the man. Below is our favorite bit from the story. The rest is here. It seems fair to note here that no one in Hollywood buys his own clothes. No actor does, I mean. They don’t. “They won’t even buy a fucking T-shirt,” Ilaria marvels. She means this in two senses: One, actors don’t physically go shopping (their stylists do), and two, they do not pay money for the clothes they wear. At Ferragamo, for example, I watch a PR woman show Ilaria a butterscotch suede bomber …
