Trunk Club – personal online shopping for men

Posted on , by Jackie in Fashion, Luxury Gifts, Menswear. Comments Off

Online personal shopping?

I know, it sounds like a contradiction, doesn’t it? But this is a wonderful service I’ve just discovered and I must share it with you. It is absolutely the best way for guys to shop for clothes – quite brilliant. It’s always said that we girls love to shop for clothes but guys hate it. I’m sure that’s too much of a generalization (I hate the mall) but I do think that buying clothes isn’t necessarily a thing men love. Now, we have the answer.

Gentlemen, you deserve a bespoke suit

Posted on , by Jackie in Fashion, Luxury Gifts, Menswear. Comments Off

There is nothing more elegant than a made-to-measure suit

This company provides the most amazing service and it also has a fascinating history which explains just why. But first, let me tell you about how this service operates. You can have, thanks to the internet, a bespoke, made-just-for-you suit (or shirt or blazer) that is guaranteed to be a superb fit, to look remarkably stylish, but without the hassle of tedious measuring and fitting or having to visit the tailoring capitals of the world. What’s more, this is a luxury you can afford.

Halloween and spooky ties

Style and spookiness for him

For every man who is happy to dress up as a banana on Halloween, there is another who has absolutely no desire to dress as a fruit, vegetable, superhero, pirate or knight in shining armor. There are also those who love to dress up – in the evening at a costume party – but has to remain sober-suited during the business day but would still like to make some concession to the occasion.

Buy and tie colored shoelaces

Posted on , by Jackie in Luxury Gifts, Menswear. Comments Off

Colored shoelaces add a touch of style and a subtle pop of color to even the most formal outfits. For many years, colored shoelaces have been available for casual wear but now, they are also available to buy online – versions that are suitable for the dressiest and most formal shoe.

The best way to make the most of these is to learn how to tie them in stylish ways. There’s little point in using these stylish products if you neglect to make the most of them.

They are terrific for weddings too. If the groom and his attendants select laces in the bride’s chosen featured color, they add such style. Which tying method do you prefer? I love the straight bar look (see the image below) but the lattice method is truly funky and not for the faint-hearted. Click the links … Read More »

Can men’s underwear be a stylish gift?

Yes, men’s underwear from Gap is stylish

Underwear – socks and shorts – were always a default gift choice for men and, shall we say, somewhat boring. But these lovely examples from Gap can spice up any man’s clothing collection. There’s no excuse for boring underwear any more!

Ties for the musician and music lover

Posted on , by Jackie in Accessories, Luxury Gifts, Menswear. Comments Off

Fun ties with a musical theme

Many men are obliged to wear a suit during their work days. Some guys are less than comfortable with the ‘jeans and t-shirt’ casual look and prefer to dress with a little formality. However, the one opportunity they have to show their personality and interests is by the creative use of neck wear. What I love about this range is that some designs are subtle and stylish and others are suitable for, well, sillier days.
