Suspenders

Firstly, sorry I have been MIA, missing in action. I have actually been travelling very much, therefore the lack of post. I will still be travelling coming March, so bare with me for my lack of post, but I will promise to update whenever possible. In the meantime, follow my Instagram for more of my outfit of the day post.

Back into topic:

Suspenders are fabric or leather straps worn over the shoulders to hold up trousers. Straps may be elasticated, either entirely or only at attachment ends and most straps are of woven cloth forming an X or Y shape at the back. So now you know what suspenders are, the question is do you wear them?

I remember when suspenders were big in the past where it would be worn in many formal events with an overcoat over it, however what about the modern society now? I remember people would ask what century are you from when you wore suspenders out a few years back, but are they making a comeback? Big menswear clothing stores are selling suspenders more often including H&M, Zara, Topman and many more are starting to sell them over the years with many different and interesting designs than the normal plain color.

Celebrities are also starting to rock the suspenders look. One of the significant celebs that wear them often is Louis Tomlinson from One Direction. You can see from his performance to his casual wear, suspenders are worn. This definitely affects the way teen starts to dress, including me since he is loved by millions of girls around the world.

In this time of age, suspenders somehow are not the first choice in dressing for male as some may think it is overdress while others do not fancy the idea of it. However, people with the daring personality to wear it wear them in formal or even casual occasions. I think suspenders are interesting fashion accessories that males should utilize, but keep in mind not everything goes with it. I personally won’t wear it with T-shirts but wear it with long sleeves button down shirts, but that is my opinion. Style is challenging the current fashion and make it your own, people remember you for your style! Where is your stand point on suspenders?

One question though, I am deciding whether to change this blog and talk more about lifestyle. It’s like I will focus on a variety of topics including the current trends and fashion, but I will add categories including vacation, food and others. Is it a good idea? Or should I just stick with this current only focus on fashion and trends blog? Comment would be appreciated.

I found this brand not too long ago and I really like to share it with you guys.

Geoffrey Beene, the leading men’s apparel and accessories company whose net profits fund cancer research and offers head-to-toe dressing options that combine intelligent design, quality, style and value. What amaze me is the fact that they actually are doing a good cause to the world. I always believe that when someone is up there, we could give the less fortunate a helping hand.

Unique to the brand, 100% of net profits from Geoffrey Beene, LLC fund philanthropic causes that support innovative research with cutting edge focus on signature solutions to a host of medical, educational and societal issues.

So I am actually in awe how much this brand really is doing something positive to the community. My wish is to follow the example set here.

Retailing in categories including dress and casual shirts, suits, neckwear, knitwear, loungewear, dress trousers and sports pants, accessories and eyewear, products are available nationwide at Macy’s, Belk, Bonton, Boscov’s and Men’s Wearhouse. At a reasonable price I may add.

A few look into what they have to offer.

Why not help out for a cause and get some nice fashion in return? Cheers.

Kiel James Patrick

Before I start my post, I want to apologize for my lack of post. Haven’t been posting for 2 weeks. 2 reasons though: 1) my degree is finishing in 3 weeks time, workload is unbearable. 2) my house wifi was down for 1 week.

Enough with my swallow excuses, let me make it up with this and upcoming posts. Give me 3 weeks time and when I finish my degree, I will post more regularly.

Ever heard of the brand? For those who did not, me neither. I recently found out that this brand existed after a kind friend of mine got me a gift from this brand. I must say it was lovely. Shout out to them! (#shoutoutsunday)

Something similar to this. I looked it up on the web and found out about this brand. By the way the anchor bracelet above: Cape Spencer Approaches, price: $38.00.

“The inspiration for the Kiel James Patrick brand was brought on by years spent exploring vintage clothing stores, antique shops and friend’s attics in search of the age-old quality, style and construction once easily found in American made goods.” Quoted from Kiel James Patrick. Visit their home page to understand more. (here)

Kiel James Patrick focuses more on accessories. From bracelets, belts to ties and bow-ties. They even have shirts. Most accessories are unisex. I actually love the vintage style of their accessories. It is not something that we can find so easily. Most brands do not focus much detail on the accessories made therefore it is interesting that I found this brand.

A glance through their items for sale and if you are kind enough, my Christmas wishlist. Feel free to get them for me. =D

Lucky Sailor, price: $85.00.

The-Great-American-Legacy

The American Legacy, price: $38.00.

Basically that’s that. I am in love with the new bracelet my friend got it for me. Would love to get more, but no stores in what I stay. However looking through the price range of these stuff, I must say it’s a little bit pricey. It won’t be something I would spend to much on, but I guess once in a while might be okay. Let me know what you guys think! Cheers.

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013

I haven’t update on runway shows for sometime, so I thought I like to cover one. Previously I cover Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 (link), so why not do a flash back to Fall 2013, which is more relevant since it’s going to be Fall soon.

Animal prints were all over the details: pointy leopard shoes, a tiger lapel on a tech-fabric jacket, some zebra. And yes, there was a conventionally pleasing camel duffel coat, but another coat in camel had a black leather revers. – Style

This season, it went back to more classic. I know some fans of Burberry would get it, since it can be easily recognize, but I would prefer a more extreme edge to it, try new designs though. I don’t dislike this collection, but having more edge to it, challenging the fashion would be more interesting to me.

One thing that caught my eye in particular is the bag the models were carrying. What do you think of it? Would you carry it?

This bag cost $1595 (USD), which is so expensive for a guy like me. However if price was not involve, I actually do imagine myself carrying a bag like this, however it needs to be well paired with your outfit and events to not look feminine since a round shape bag don’t give a very manly impression.

Tell me what do you think of it? If you like me to cover any specific topics, do comment or e-mail me.

Short Sleeve Shirts

 

Finally after a long gruesome semester, I finally have the time to do some shopping by myself. I did not intend to get anything at first, but there were sales throughout the store, so I had to check them out. I pass by Springfield and immediately fell in love with the shirt. It was something I intended to get for a long time, but couldn’t find the right cutting or design, therefore I got it instantly.

I especially love the design and the blue of the shirt and it was the final piece! Therefore it is so much more worth it!

Springfield is an European brand. Even though it’s not my favourite brand, but I would often walk in to check out their new stuff. Springfield was founded in 1988 with the objective of dressing urban and cosmopolitan young men. Today, they are celebrating their 25th anniversary.

I like the young, hip and trendy style they produced but not too wild for the average men to wear. I believe if you are a male from the age of 13-30, the style would fit you well.

Check out more on their website. http://www2.spf.com/

I was not a fan of short sleeve shirts, never been a fan of it till recently though. I used to find it weird, because of some teacher who wore it wrongly in high school, but recently after having to looking at some celebrities rocking it, I became a fan. One of them is Louis Tomlinson from One Direction.

I love how he look so good in short sleeve shirts, so you can say my inspiration comes from him. Will update on my outfit of the day of my shirt, but have to wash it first. Let me know what you think of short sleeve shirts. Would you wear it or not?

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014

Burberry Prorsum first caught my eyes for it’s Fall 2013 collection. I was walking down a shopping complex outside Burberry and the runway show caught my attention. But unlike any runway shows, I actually love most of it’s collection of that season. It is not only practical, but it’s fashionable. Most outfit combines with an umbrella so that it’s practical when it’s raining and London don’t get much sun during the fall and winter.

A small flashback to their collection back then:

Some of my personal favourites from that collection.

Enough of that, here is a few of my personal favourites from the collection of Spring 2014. I like how bright the colour that was use in this collection, it shows a mixture of bright colours in an outfit that actually grabs people attention. I personally don’t think it is easy to pull off, but it will be very nice if you pull it off.

I personally love the outfit above because of the simple white shirt and black slacks but with the striking colour tie and scarf makes it all the more unique.

I love the shoes collection from Burberry Prorsum where it doesn’t stick to the old fashion leather formal shoes but with newer design shoes, like boat-shoes…

Sorry for the slow updates. I was quite busy for the past few weeks. I promise more frequent posts and definitely more topics touch rather than only the latest fashion menswear runway shows. Stay tune. Do give me some feedback.
