Mens Socks: Pantharella

Mens Hosiery – Tradition and Fashion

Men’s fashion micro trend: “the Statement sock”

 

It’s time to wear socks again… Traditions suggests you wear a sock that is a little darker than your trouser. There are many fun patterns, and you can match secondary colors in the sock to your shirt, tie or pocket square.

Fashion says there’s absolutely a place in men’s style for colored socks that do not match the trousers. It requires a little more care, because it’s not a simple, neutral choice, but if you take that care it can look great.

“Statement socks are like a stylish man’s best kept secret.” GQ.  This secret is getting out and has played a major part in increasing money spent on men’s clothing this past year.

Pantherella is one of our favorite brand of “fun” socks:

Tan Shoes + Dark Suit = High Style

Can you wear tan dress shoes with a dark suit? YES!

Tan Shoes + Dark Suit = High Style

When suggesting tan shoes to buyers, the most frequent question we usually get is – can you wear tan dress shoes with a dark suit? Our answer is usually a big “YES”. Even though they are not the type of shoes you can wear with just anything, tan shoes can create everything, from casual looks for relaxed days out, to smart outfits that are perfect for the office.

If you are wondering what to wear with tan shoes, and you don’t have the intention of creating a summery style look, then an easy solution would be to go for darker colors. You can pair your dress tan shoes with black or classic navy suits to create a sharp, put-together look that is perfect for any formal occasion. We have a great collection of tan shoes from Allen Edmond that come in a wider range of tones, which can help add serious style to dark suits.  Take a look:

Strand Cap-toe Oxfords with Dainite Rubber Sole + Coppley Suit

Columbia’s Father’s Day Store for Men

Excellent Gifts For Father’s Day

Whether he’s your biological father, or the man who raised you, the dad in your life is undoubtedly a special human being. Even though father figures seem to have it all, their hearts tend to melt whenever their children shower them with thoughtful gifts. If you haven’t seen your father for quite sometime and wants to make a surprise visit, you may be in dilemma picking gifts. Is he slimmer or has he added a few pounds? Will this coat fit? Will this beautiful suit look flabby on him? All those are valid questions, and the most ideal thing to do is to buy gifts where size doesn’t matter. For such cases, the following will prove to be excellent gifts for Father’s Day:

Classic Men’s Watch

Regardless of the fact that there are many other devices that help one keep track of time, watches will always remain valid. Watches have been a man’s number 1 wardrobe essential since their invention and this won’t change anytime soon. When thinking of it as a Father’s Day gift, you need to pick the best brand on the market. Daniel Wellington watches perfectly fit that description as they are created with the notion of style in mind.

Working Man’s Wallet

Every man has a wallet, that’s a fact. Regardless of whether your father has one or several, adding a wallet to his collection will be very thoughtful. For this special day, you don’t need just any wallet, but you need one that will make a statement. Working Man’s Wallets have the reputation for being highly durable, versatile and convenient.

WORKING MANS WALLTET

This Working Man’s wallet is made of oiled cowhide leather that’s durable enough to last a decade or more. It comes with 8 credit card slots plus 2 side-entry slots.

Guide to Pattern Mixing

How to Pattern Mix for Spring

Spring brings a much needed a burst of color and patterns. Make them work together with our guide to pattern mixing

Pattern Shirts from Peter Millar

Spring is the season for pattern mixing. After a long winter of grays and blacks, we yearn to lighten things up with bright colors and bold patterns. But we’re careful to not go too crazy—we don’t want to look like we got dressed in the dark. Here are our tips for pattern mixing like a street-style pro.

1. The colors of your bigger pieces should be more subdued

Your jacket and shirt comprise the largest physical spaces on your body, so if you wear a neon orange sport coat, for example, you may take someone’s eye out. Save the boldest colors for your accessories, like your tie or pocket square.

2. Combine complimentary prints

It’s possible to wear more than one pattern at time, as long as the patterns compliment each other. Choose patterns that have different shapes (e.g. stripes with polka dots) or lines (one fun, one relaxed). This will create contrast between your pieces. Also, one pattern should be calmer than the other, to keep your look sophisticated.

3. Stay on one end of the color spectrum

Another key to proper pattern mixing involves sticking to one color family. For instance, if you want to wear a bright yellow tie, pair it with pieces that are also warm colors. Similarly, if you want to sport your favorite blue sport coat, make sure everything else is a cool color.

*Note that gray is a great chameleon and can be matched with warm and cool tones.
