Men's Flair Posts

Between semi-business casual, office casual, and casual Friday, no wonder things can get a little confusing. Don’t worry though: knowing how to dress for success is just a question of getting to know your workplace and its quirks.

Why designer jeans? Are you picky about washes? Finicky about weave? If you answer yes, then designer jeans are for you. In a literal sense of the word, “designer jeans” should be the jeans designed by a famous fashion designer. In a true sense the term means “expensive jeans.” Usually they are of high-quality too.

Luxury watches are a legacy—again. They’re back from being the status symbol, so if you’ve got one that you have inherited, now’s the time to wear it with pride.

Watches aren’t just accessories, but timeless symbols for a generation. Perhaps you’ve noticed that  luxury watches for men have been advertised recently as not only quality pieces, but as heirlooms.

Light fabrics have been taking the forefront in every fashionable man’s closet this summer, but besides linen and poplin, there’s also seersucker to scoop up. It’s got a distinctive look that’ll get you noticed: puckered texture, distinctive look, and color variations beyond belief.

In today’s world, men can no longer get away with looking unkempt. In the decade of grunge music and baggy clothes, called the 90’s, men got away with wearing ripped jeans and flannel shirts and calling them “fashion statements.” Even the runway showed the influences of the Seattle sound. But those days are long gone, and in their wake we are left with a complete reversal.

John, Medford, OR asks
Question: I’m always having trouble with cleaning suede shoes and, unfortunately, they get dirty easily. Is there a proper way to do it?


The proper way is to take them to professional leather cleaners.

Brad, St. Louis, MO asks
Question: I have always been using sporty fragrances like Adidas or something. Since I have started using Aqua Di Gio, which I get as a gift, I don’t want to go back. I would like to buy some other good fragrance, but my budget is not too high, so I wonder what are the longest lasting fragrances?


To answer your question fully, we would have to execute some serious lab testings and still you will not get the answer that you are really in need of.

Marc, Macon, GA asks
Question: Recently I’ve been told that it is wrong to tuck button down shirts into jeans. Since I always tuck shirts into jeans, it really bothers me. So, should the shirt be tucked or untucked?


As everything else in world of fashion, it always depends.
