What I like about this editorial at first was the bone structures of the model both on rear and side views. Hair was polished and I like the waves on sides - making the look more subtle. The styling was just too dark, making it more impossible to notice the stitches and design, but then, wait until I get to see what is behind -BACKBONE?



No belt insertions, no support, just pure good fitting



Sheer fabrics and sleeves that remind me of terraces. Leggings and shorts which I can't get enough of.

Velvet Por Homme

This year, we are seeing more and more variation within the clothing industry and one fabric that has made a real impact lately is velvet. Velvet is a really extravagant fabric which oozes class and wealth. I immediately associate it with the upper class, but with this comes the stigma of it being “stuffy” or old. This is not the case however as we can bring it bang up to date with the right surrounding pieces. Velvet is present in a lot of the new collections this year, but you will find the best examples in formal wear such as: Lined shoes, ties & bow ties, blazers and waistcoats. Velvet has made its way back onto the runway but not every man feels comfortable going with a velvet suit. If you want to stay fashion forward without jumping to deeply into the trends, consider getting a blazer or suit jacket with a velvet lapel or add a velvet trouser to your tweed blazer.

Garage Dec-Jan 2010 Issue: Varsity and Letterman Jackets 50's Style

During the 1950′s, varsity jackets became the rage among high school and college students. Just as in the 1960′s with the culture radically changing and styles with it, fashion has reinvented once again the high school uniform into high street style, even crossing runway boarders for Louis Vuitton, Junya Watanabe and Calvin Klein. Garage’s latest issue features “Retro Sleek: How to Rock the Total Look from Fashion to Hairstyle”, “Top Holiday Styles”, “Party Time!”, “Super Trooper” and more!

“Comme des Garçons designer Junya Watanabe’s AW10 collection combines heritage design with the Watanabe’s unique use of contrasting fabrics. This leather varsity jacket takes this American college classic and adds a quilted camouflage lining, a subtle but well considered variation that works exceptionally well.” The results are beautiful and Vanson Leather construction is always top notch.
