How to find a fitting suit?

 

I came across this a few days back and this is really what every guy needs when buying a suit! I see too many guys with the wrong fitting. You don’t need to be rich for a nice suit, but be aware of the fitting when you buy them.

Could resist not putting a Zac Efron picture in here. He is perfect though.

71st Annual Golden Globe Men’s Fashion

I hope it is not too late to talk about the Golden Globe as I just recently watched it the night before. I am a sucker for award show, it’s nice seeing my favourite celebrity get rewarded after the outstanding performance they gave in a film. Even though the male fashion can be kind of boring however once in awhile it’s nice to see someone who stood out.

I have been asked to wear formal for a past few events, so I know how hard it is to match formal wear! Will update it in a post soon.

A big roundup would be that coloured suit is the thing to go this award season gala. The top 3, Leonardo DiCaprio, Channing Tatum and Bradley Cooper wore simple black suits, white shirts and bowtie or tie. Which I think is simple yet elegant, however for us commoner without their good looks, we might end up looking like a waiter. Therefore my advice would be the cutting of the suits is so important!

Coloured suits are beautiful! I love how the other 3 celebs wore it beautifully. Seth Meyers on his navy blue suit, Usher in his very beautiful burgundy colour and Matthew McConaughey deep green suit. It looks great but to be honest, it is not cheap for a suit, however we cannot be wearing the same coloured suit to different events, therefore owning a variety of it will be costly. I definitely love to have the variety but it would be too expensive to afford well-fitted suit and different colours of them.

All in all I think Usher is my choice of best dressed.

I want to talk about Jared Leto as well. Congrats to him and all the other winners on winning. Leonardo, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams, they were my favourites.

What does everyone think of Jared? I know he doesn’t looked like himself, or maybe it’s just me. I like what he wore especially his scarf. The amount of detail to his outfit was great.

He was rocking long hair and his scruffy facial hair and for me, I think he is a little too skinny for this look. I would love to see him shaved and short hair, but that’s my opinion. I still think he is gorgeous though and the weight he had to lose for his movie, Dallas Buyer Club was scary actually but it’s admirable. Just stating I like him short hair and shaved, that’s all.

MTV VMA’s 2013 Men Fashion

I know I am fairly late for this post, but better late than never. It was only a week plus after MTV biggest event of the year (from my perspective), beside girls striding the red carpet, guys did too. One thing about MTV VMA, it’s not a formal event, therefore many celebrities wore semi-formal suits or even casual wear.

I am not a fan of casual for events like this, but I find some semi-formal wear are actually very nice and I would totally wear it in my daily life. Have a look at some of my favorites male celebrities red carpet outfit for the night.

Justin Timberlake is definitely bringing sexy back, from his 20 minutes performance, it brought the house down! I have a whole new respect for him. However fashion wise, I don’t actually like the shirt he had on, which is black and white, it somehow don’t attract me. With the suit, I think he pulled it off handsomely.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, both of these sexy Mofo’s had an amazing performance and I might say amazing fashion taste. It is casual enough for VMA however much formal for our everyday life. I actually like the challenge they took for this outfit. Love the fur scarf on Macklemore, I presume.

Adam Lambert fashion taste always has the rocker edge to it, but sophisticated in the same time. I find the shoes interesting though, not something I would wear but it’s interesting.

Congratulation Austin Monroe on his award. I like what he had on and the fact the shoe matches the suit, but I think it makes him look abit younger. It’s nice though.

My favorite boy band of all time! Congratulations on getting an award for Best Song Ever! I love them mainly because of the fashion sense they have. I don’t think they ever got it wrong when it comes to fashion. I like how they coordinate they fashion together. Most importantly the style they have can be inspire by us for our daily life.

And the best dress in my opinion goes to:

Darren Criss! He looked stunning in this maroon suit. Enough said, it’s perfect!

What do you guys think of the MTV VMA? What about the fashion? Let me know.

Versace Spring/Summer & Fall 2013

It’s fashion news Monday (or Tuesday) depends on which time zone you are in. I wanted to make a variety of post and every week, there would be a post on fashion news. Guess that might be able to kick away your Monday blues slightly a little by looking at wonderful style and maybe would make you to strive harder in the week to achieve in owning styles like this. Anyhow for me, I love having a good look at some runway fashion even though I couldn’t afford them, but maybe it’s a reminder of what I want to strive for in life.

One of my favourite brands is Versace! I don’t merely like it because of it’s distinctive Italian name or the fact it cause so much to get a shoes of that brand, but I think Versace creates very unique style that stands out among different brands. It’s noticeable and memorable, but not always wearable in public and everyday life, but it’s definitely a brand I always look into it.

Versace Spring/Summer 2013 collection was based on the concept of “Pugilist.” That’s the strong man whom Donatella Versace saw as the pillar of her latest men’s collection. In the year of The Hunger Games, a gladiatorial fight for survival is a timely reference and, beforehand, Donatella was laudably vocal about the need for the youth of today to be gladiators on behalf of their rights. Therefore the style was more of a gladiator inspired style.

Versace 25

But let’s be honest, who wears the above for our daily life? It’s not exactly what we would be wearing maybe to the exception of heading to the beach. However the suits below are something I picture myself or anyone for the matter wearing to work etc.

Versace 21 Versace 22

I absolutely love the suit above because of it’s unique quality and would totally love to get one of them. The full fashion show can be view here. (link)

The fashion industry is always in a fast forward mode, before Summer is here, they are out with the Fall 2013 collection. I guess that’s how the fashion industry works. Since I didn’t find much clothes to talk about, so I shall just include the Fall 2013 collection. I absolutely love them! With all the suits and it’s just amazing!

“Masculinity is not something given to you, but something you gain.” With that quote as the design inspiration,  she showed jackets with sleeves pushed up, or baggy leather pants snapped at the ankle, or a motocross outfit outlined in gold zippers. Donatella was challenging the borders of taste. I must say it is absolutely gorgeous! Have a look for yourself!

I hope looking at these design by Versace get you inspired for the week on what to wear, what to get or maybe what to work for in life to get this! I know I have, since blogging this was the highlight of my day! What do you guys think about Versace? Do you guys like me having a day of the week just talking about fashion news?

Have a great day!

Ermengildo Zegna 2013 Spring Collection

 

 

In conjunction with the most recent Ermenegildo Zegna 50th Anniversary Wool Awards, I would like to talk about Ermenegildo Zegna collections. Ermenegildo Zegna is one of my favourite brands (part of it maybe it’s because the name is so authentic), even though I do not own any items from there, but I like going through news and blogs about their latest collection. I find Ermenegildo Zegna collections are sophisticated and elegant. It makes the model or person wears it feels like a class above with the fine details on the clothing.

Ermenegildo Zegna spring collection 2013 brings elegant to the runway with silk as one of the main materials on the clothings. “The cashmere of Summer” Anna Zegna, granddaughter of the original Ermenegildo, called it. Silk showed up in every look: mixed into perforated knits, shining in shantung suiting, wafting in shirts printed with tropical banana or mango leaves.

Below are some of the interesting looks that caught my eyes while scrolling through Ermenegildo Zegna spring collection 2013.

The detail of the shirt and pants shows a sophistication. I especially love the bag the model is carrying. For me, bags like these are a must have to the modern day male.

I love this double-breasted suit. This formal suit looks stylist and formal at the same time.

00240fullscreen00340fullscreen00360fullscreenThis blue suit looks stunning on the model! This blue is such a nice color for a suit and definitely caught my attention.

Ermenegildo Zegna added color suits and pants to their collection and made it looked formal and stylish altogether had me fascinated with their spring collection 2013. What do you think of Ermenegildo Zegna spring collection 2013? I can’t wait for that day I earn enough money to afford myself an Ermenegildo Zegna suit!

MTV Movie Awards 2013 Best Dressed Men

MTV Movie Awards! Yup, it’s another award show and besides watching Rebel Wilson hosting the show, I like to check out award shows to look at style and fashion. Even though most of the items celebrities wear are not affordable to us but it’s nice to know what new designs and what we strive to get if we have the money.

MTV Movie Awards are not as glamorous or formal as Oscar, since the categories of awards includes best shirtless and best kiss, overly formal doesn’t suit it at all, but I like to see how celebs dress up with suits without being too formal. Watching through the red carpet, I came up with a few of my best dressed, so here they are. Though I don’t know who the celebs are wearing, but hope it might inspired you to wear something similar.

I do not own any of this photos. Photos are from OKmagazine, RemoteControlMTV, Hollywoodlife and TomandLorenzo

Beau Mirchoff

Beau Mirchoff looking absolutely stunning in the blue suit and shirt! Absolutely love how he matched everything and goes very well! I would love to get my hands on that suit he’s wearing.

Vinny Guadagnino

Bow-ties are definitely a nice touch to the perfect outfit, I recommend guys should get a bow-tie.

Charlie Carver and Max Carver

Charlie and Max Carver from Desperate Housewives. I love how they still wore formal suits to MTV Movie Awards. I believe that you can never be overdress for an event. Their well-fitted suits are a A+ in style!

Nolan Funk

Nolan Funk wore on a simple T-shirt with a suit making his style simple yet stylish. I like how it didn’t seemed to formal and suited the event.

Eddie Redmayne

Eddie Redmayne wore much casual clothes compare to his Oscar suit, but he still looked amazing.

The 5 above are my best dressed male of the night. Absolutely love all their style and I would love to be able to get my hands on those style as well.

Zachary Quinto

Zachary Quinto wore a DSquared suit which I love the color so much. The only thing was the fitting on the pants that didn’t seem appealing to me, wish he had made the pants slightly more fitting. Tip of the day: fitting clothes are essential!

That’s my review on the men’s fashion on MTV Movie Awards, what do you guys think? Agree or Disagree?
