Cool It – Dressing for Fall & Winter.

Primer for men on dressing for colder months. Topics include color palette choice and textures.


I’ve Gone Cardigan, and I’m Not Going Back.

I’ve finally taken the plunge and purchased my first (and second) cardigan. Sort of an odd thing to celebrate, but, hear me out. I know I’m not exactly blazing a style trail here, but I can’t believe it took me so long to pull the trigger. With the new modern fit of cardigans, it has…Read the Rest


Outerwear Sales: Banana Republic & M+O.

Two new sales on outerwear from Banana Republic and Martin+OSA that I thought you should be made aware of. It’s getting colder out there (if it isn’t already butt-freezing where you’re at), so take advantage if you can. First up, Banana Republic. They’ve sort of fallen out of favor with me, because I’ve seen a…Read the Rest


Scarves – revisited.

I know the scarf post was a bit light on exactly how to wear one, mostly because I couldn’t find any acceptable images. It was more to open your mind to the possibility of the scarf as an accessory, since I don’t see many normal guys wearing them. However, I came across this post that…Read the Rest


Steal This Look.

A button down under a sweater is one of my favorite looks for fall. Done right, it looks clean and put together, yet not overly preppy. The layering allows you to combine different colors, textures, and patterns to put together a very unique outfit. The key is of course in the individual pieces, and how…Read the Rest


Wrap It Up – Scarves.

I’ve an odd confession: it’s only been in recent years that I’ve become acquainted with the scarf. Being from the South, it isn’t so much a cold weather necessity. Plus, I used to think that scarves were too effeminate, since I only saw women pull off the look successfully. But, after a little bit of…Read the Rest


Fall Jackets + Sale.

Now that the weather in the South has finally turned towards Fall, it’s time to gear up for the best season(s) for guys to dress: Fall & Winter. The key, as mentioned before, is layering. Now that we don’t have to worry about pit sweat (yum) when we put on something more substantial than a…Read the Rest


Bundle o’ Sales.

I know posts have been slow, but life has gotten in the way of blog posts. To prove that I’m always thinking of you (and your wallet) here are some sales that you should be made aware of: JCrew – 25% off select denim Martin + OSA – 40% Fall items Gap – 25% off…Read the Rest


Pick-a-Outfit: JCrew Part II.

For the second outfit in this series, I’ve focused on something slightly more trendy than yesterday’s ensemble. The corresponding outfit from Banana was a simple pair of clean jeans and a button down shirt. We’ll go with something along the same lines, but throw in a tie, just to show you more ways to spruce…Read the Rest


Kick It. Tasty Groove Optional.

I know that for going out or weekend wear that it’s far easier to throw on your trusty sneakers or flip flops (in the warmer months), than it is to find something new. But, just like you’ve been attempting to convince your girlfriend, it’s good to broaden your horizons. I’ve already mentioned wingtips, and cool…Read the Rest


Pull It Off: Sport Coat & Jeans.

As Fall approaches (ever so slooooowly for us Texans), it’s time to look forward to the beginning of the most fun time for men’s style. Why? Because guys sweat, which means the amount of clothes that we can wear, and not melt, is exceedingly small. Whereas, once the temperature begins to drop slightly, we can…Read the Rest


M+O Shop By Outfit: Fail.

In my inbox yesterday was Martin+OSA’s new Fall Shop by Outfit offering, and I thought *great* some new clothes to let the reader in on. Not so. Most online shops have a similar feature of showcasing outfits, but it should be utilized more because frankly most guys are lazy. Especially when it comes to buying…Read the Rest


M+O Fall Boots.

Martin + OSA is a traditionally inspired, American style clothing store of a similar vein to that of JCrew. In addition to in-house designed clothes, they also stock trendy brands like Jack Purcell and Filson. M+O consistently has quality, stylish clothing at reasonable prices. If you have one in your city, I suggest you get…Read the Rest


J&M Fall Preview.

Since I used a Johnston & Murphy offering as a punching bag in my post on shirts, despite actually liking some of their stuff, I’ve decided to quickly highlight some of their more stylish offerings in their just released Fall preview. Which reminds me, I completely don’t understand the lack of consideration of geography when…Read the Rest
