5 Must-have Items of Clothing Every Guy Needs

Posted by on

If it feels good, wear it. You’ve heard that before, but not like this. 

These days, it’s as much about how clothes feel when you touch them, as it is when you look or wear them. Top designers have used luxurious fabrics, offering coats, jackets and sweaters in vicuna, alpaca, cashmere, mohair and more.

You’re a lucky man if you can afford those clothes; most of us will still find lots of clothes in rich, textured fabrics that are within our reach.

Grey Flannel Mens Suit

If this is the fall you buy a new suit, then go for a dark grey flannel that has some weight to it, or if you want to take a different direction, a wool sports jacket in a subtle check is a great alternative. By subtle we’re talking colour; the check itself can be large.

Where coats are concerned you can aim for a classic wool topcoat in a heritage fabric or, since this is a year of mixing the dressed with the casual, a down-filled coat or three-quarter outdoors-looking jacket will work. Look for something a little less puffy than the one you’ve been kicking around in the last couple of years. A duffle coat is a great idea as well.

The Brits call them roll necks, we call them turtlenecks and yes, turtleneck sweaters are sticking their heads out again. A fine wool turtleneck can replace shirt and tie under a tailored suit with black under black looking great for a big night out.

Fisherman knit and cable knit sweaters are going to be worth the financial outlay. And while we’re on sweaters, a good alternative to something heavy and textured is the new crop of geometrics including classic argyles in bold colours.

 

Mens Collared Shirts and Suits

Get yourself a band-collared shirt, which is, essentially, a shirt without a collar. It will be perfect under a suit. There are bold coloured, patterned scarves to be had and you may have noticed that gold chains are looking kind of good again; one thin chain, nothing bling.

Two-buckled, monk strap shoes are all set for their moment this fall, and there are some terrific boots, particularly hybrid hiking boots with a space-age look to them. The one key thing to look for is a thicker sole, crepe if you see it. For socks think solid colours not stripes but look for textures and patterns like herringbone and paisley. There.

Men's Trends With Mark Anthony

Posted by on

From the runway to a day in the office, to even painting the town red at noteworthy events, in recent times, trendy menswear has given fashion an exclusive facelift.

 

For this men's edition of Flair Magazine, we take a look at mens' fashion through the lens of local designer Mark Anthony.

 

Tailor by design, Anthony proudly carries on the creative tradition from his uncle, who he considered a master tailor. And while he never envisioned himself in fashion, with the extra push from his grandmother, he furthered his training by obtaining certification from the Heart Trust.

Despite the issues of exploitation from the 'powers that be' and disunity among fellow designers, and the challenge of sourcing good-quality fabric locally, Anthony pushed on - with the help of divine intervention, focusing on giving featured fabric not only a voice but also a personality.

"Fabric and its texture play a vital role in executing a well-tailored garment. I always work against the grain, so if it's the norm to see a black shirt with black buttons, then you'll see red buttons on a Mark Anthony shirt," he revealed.

With this unique style of designing in mind, he hopes to establish the Mark Anthony Designs brand on the international market, paving the way for other local designers in Jamaica.

Describing his personal style as clean, well-tailored, fresh, chic and functional, he offers a few tips for men aspiring to keep up with the trend:

Every man should have a well-tailored suit in his closet, preferably a coral or gray suit. Double vent and two buttons are more modern and fashionable.

A pair of black and a brown laced wing-tip shoes with matching belts. A reversible leather belt is a good buy and can be found at Boss Apparel.

A pair of cuff links, handkerchiefs, pocket squares or lapel flower, give you the freedom to add extra style and personal taste to your suit.

Only the top button should be buttoned on a two-button jacket.

Find out your size and wear it. This includes wearing the right size suits, shirts and pants. That's the genesis of a well-dressed man.

Anthony is currently in the process of launching a socks line called 'Fashion Trendy Feet by Mark Anthony'. He explained: "This brand extension features a line of socks suited for men. The idea is to make a bold or subtle statement with your feet. It further extends or accentuates the trouser. Six exciting categories of socks are offered. They are 'The Executive, Designer Dress' series,' Trendy', 'Happy', 'Argyle', 'Classic' and 'Casual'."
