    Summer is exiting while Fall is on the brink of commencement, and I must say I'm looking forward to the cooler days and clever layering. I've throughly enjoyed the direction of menswear throughout the summer season, but now its almost time to see what Fall/Winter has in store. It's definitley still too hot out to don my favorite cashmere sweater and moto leather jacket, but I was able to get a jump start on my textural pattern mixing and layering on a semi-cool rainy day. This is what I call "creating a 3 piece suit." This occurs when I wear a...

We recently collaborated with Garnish Hair Studio to offer the New Year/New You contest winner a style update. We put her in a variety of stylishly modern looks while Andrayah and Candice of Garnish masterfully handled all things hair. She looked so photoshoot ready that they decided to...

The styling of this look was truly inspired by a modern regal theme. Here, it was all about the precise tailoring of the suit. The wide peak lapel combined with the slim cut of the suit embraces traditional ideals while giving a nod to a fresh modern approach. The orange hues blended naturally with the suit while subtly giving the overall look a pop. The Look: Suit: Tom Ford Shirt: Hugo Boss Tie: Ermenegildo Zegna Watch: Nixon Shoes: Scarpe di Bianco Pocket Square: Bizzocchi Lapel Pin: Hook & Albert ...

Now that its heating up outside, its time to put away the heavier fully lined jackets and opt for its unlined counterpart. Its lightweight construction will help stave off the heat, while its unconstructed look will keep things refreshingly cool and casual. Opt for one in a navy or grey hue and think of it as a grab and go piece. One that you can toss on with just about anything because it just works. From jeans to joggers to tailored trosers, it has excellent versatility. A great way to beat the heat while still keeping things stylish.     Move in Style |...

These are two items that will definitely get mad love from me this Spring. The lightweight bomber along with the modern Polo shirt. We understand the transitional period from Fall to Spring can cause some difficulties when perusing your wardrobe searching for the perfect look. The indecisive weather can sometimes bring you to these sentiments, "It's too warm for this yet too chilly for that." We feel you, we've been there. Here's a simple fix when you find yourself stumped on those cool Spring days. Opt for one of the seasons' more refined take on the classic Polo shirt and pair...

I'm all about a great DB worn with a great spread collar and a knit tie, but I'm intrigued with the juxtaposition of elevated athletic wear and suiting. I envisioned a sportier take on the classic double breasted jacket, so I simply added a sleeveless hoody and my signature wide brim fedora to create the look. I've been into neutrals lately so I opted for more of a subdued color palette. Move in Style | DB...

1 The High Blue Suit Simply put, this is the suit of the season. Darker than light blue, yet lighter than navy. We've been donning those winter ready suiting options all season, it's time to brighten it up a bit. Try taking on Spring in a well tailored suit in this killer hue and you'll see why this is a go to for us this season. 2 White Leather Low Top Sneakers We keep it simple with this extra versatile smart shoe option for the spring. Dress them up smartly with a suit or wear pair them with your favorite chino shorts for a spring-ready...

    This look is brought to you by mild winter weather. When the 60 degree weather comes rolling in unannounced, the cashmere topcoats get placed back in the closets. Just for the day that is. I haven't worn this vintage Levi vest so this was the perfect opportunity to layer it with my newly acquired Club Monaco knit crewneck sweater. I also love the dynamic between mustard yellow and navy, hence the connection between my shoe of choice and my trousers. I ultimately kept it casual and sporty with this look which was ideal for enjoying this delightful weather.    Move in Style | DB...

Worn by guys like Mick Jagger all the way to yours truly.  If there is one way to edge up any look with a rebellious touch, it's done by confidently adding this jacket to the mix. Pair it with a flannel shirt and a slimmer cut jean option, or wear it smartly with a turtleneck and a tailored flannel wool trouser. This is one of those pieces that you should probably get your hands on for the fall/winter.   Move in Style | DB...

  I have developed an apparent affinity for the many variations of navy blue. I'm intrigued even more so by the richness in the pairing of navy blue and black. It's safe to say that this combination could easily be a uniform for me day in and day out. It's very subtle yet very striking, it's minimalistic yet very elegant. There's such a perceivable charm given off by the proper execution of this look. The key to pulling this off is opting for a rich medium blue (or French Navy if you would) to provide a slight contrast with the black...

  This wide brim fedora is quickly becoming my favorite hat to don with just about anything. It's the ultimate grab and go piece that adds a chic aura to the ensemble. I never put too much thought into what I wear it with. It just...

It had been such a long time since I have worn this vest, so I decided to incorporate it with this casual-sporty look. I'm a huge fan of blending cool vintage elements with modern chic pieces, so I made sure to accessorize appropriately with a pocket-chain and my signature fedora. We happened to be strolling through downtown Raleigh and decided to stop in. No, not to get a room but to marvel in its decrepit beauty. Went quite well with the ensemble if I should say so myself.
