Happy Mother’s Day
#333 - A man of Style loves all the moms in his life…don’t forget to honor and remember them this weekend…you can never go wrong with flowers and a card…tmoS
#121 - Assuming you’re not a lawyer, or work in finance…you don’t need ten suits; you only need four…The Standard Blue: great for business, lunches, summer dinners, or casual parties…by the way, blue means navy, or a couple of shades lighter…as I have said previously, if you only own one suit, this is the one …The Classic Grey: appropriate for everything…and look sharp with patterns, especially anything in the chevron or windowpane family…start with a solid grey and mix in some patterns as you add to your wardrobe…The Basic Black: a perennial classic…it’s at home in any occasion…the perfect complement to a crisp white shirt…The Pinstripe: basically any color stated above, but with pinstripes…just make sure the stripes aren’t too wide…unless, of course, you want to look like a hold-over from GoodFellas…tmoS

#566 - This only needs to be said once…socks and sandals are a match made in Style hell…you either want your feet exposed to the fresh air, or you don’t…and since we also have established that flip-flops anywhere, but near the water, is a no-no…why not try on a pair of light canvas slip-ons…if you have the need to wear something light on your feet, but still keep your socks on…tmoS
#237 - Patterns aren’t an easy thing to master…here is a list of the most common, and how you can tell them apart…Hounds-tooth; it is named this because from a distant glance, it vaguely resembles angular canine teeth…you will find this commonly used on jackets and blazers…Herringbone; a tight pattern that’s easily identifiable by its chevrons pattern…often found on suits, scarves and socks, not to mention jackets and blazers…Pinstripe; identifiable through its evenly spaced, yet tightly packed dotted stripes…usually the stripes are fine, light, and uniform…found on your classic pin stripe suit…Paisley; is categorized by its distinctive twisting, droplet shape…kind of look like amoebas as seen under a microscope…most often found on neckties…now you know you patterns…go out and impress your friends…tmoS
#307 - A man of Style knows his U.S. history…the people, places, and events that have shaped this great nation…tmoS
Every month we highlight a man that exemplifies classic style…a true man of Style…this month we salute…american actor…Steve McQueen…one of the original “Kings of Cool”…tmoS
