Greetings from London,
I know that I have been M.I.A for a while, but can you blame me. I am in London! Which is amazing by the way. The culture, the people and, of course, the fashion are all “snatching.” I met a ton of new people and experience so much. With that being said, this is just the first of the many new photos to come. Enjoy.
Ahh! I am back everyone. And Guess what, I am in London. So, be prepared to see a whole new type of fashion on my blog. Well, once I get passed the let jag, but I am working on it, I actually slept for 6 today. Anyhow, keep checking back for new posts, I will be working with a ton of new stylists, designers and brands, it is going to be great.

Many of you already know that Lands’ End Canvas is one of my favorite brands, a lot of my outfits can attest to that. So, when I found out that the brand had reinvented their chinos, introducing the world to their new Comer 608 slim-fit chino. I had to have them. When they arrived in the mail, I wasted no time, and tore open the package—yes, it that was serious, don’t judge me. The first thing I noticed was the feel of the pant. It was not stiff nor did it have that “linen cloth” feel that other chinos have. Instead, the fabric was very soft; so soft you can tell just by looking at it. What I love most about this chino is the fact that it is actually slim-fit. I cannot tell you how many times I have encountered chinos that were said to be slim-fit, but fit straight-leg. I commend Lands’ End Canvas for keeping slim-fit, slim.
For this look, I paired my evergreen forest chino with a light blue heritage oxford shirt and gray V-neck t-shirt, which enhanced the green and the blue. The brown striped socks added more personality to my outfit and drew attention to my pant. And I used the brown braided belt to serve as my neutralizer, blending my outfit together.
Despite my rambling about my outfit, I did not forget about you. In fact, I have some great news. You too can experience the chino. Lands’ End Canvas is hosting a contest where they are giving away a $100 gift card each day this week and a $500 grand prize.
To enter, just pin one of my looks and 5 pieces from Land’s End Canvas to a #CanvasChinos board on Pinterest and submit the link to your board on Facebook. In order to get the grand prize you have to make sure that you pin a look from all five bloggers participating in the Land’s End Challenge— Tucked Style, Eye4Style, and Budget Babe—along with 5 other pieces from Canvas and the contest graphic below. Easy Right? So, what are you waiting for, start pinning. And while you are at it, check out tomorrow’s blogger, Fashionalities, to see what look she went with.

10 Items That Every Man Should Have in His Closet
Most men think they know style from A to Z, but what are the ten things in a man’s closet that would confirm whether he is a real-life style expert or a fashion dud? We took a look at the definitive top 10 of things that every man should own.
Even if you have a job where you can go to work in jeans and a t-shirt, you should own a suit. You never know when you might need to wear one, so ensure you have a quality piece of tailoring to hand.
If you work in an office environment this will be a given. If you are in the category above and only wear a suit sporadically, keep a supply of crisp white shirts and a selection of three or four ties of various colours and patterns.
Enough, gentlemen, means around 14 pairs. Having one for each day is not acceptable, and if you own anything less than 10 pairs you certainly have a problem. Fresh and stylish is the way forward, here!
There is no need to follow your girlfriend’s lead and have a whole collection to hand, as a guy usually three will do. Something fresh and light for the day, a spicier, stronger option for the evening, and something with citrus for the summer. Easy!
Yes, I am afraid that accessories matter when it comes to male fashion, too. Your shoes should always match your belt color, and your belt buckle should always match any jewelry or cufflinks you use.
Save yourself the stress of ironing and re-ironing by having a spacious wardrobe with enough room to hang everything, from trousers, to dress shirts, to casual polo shirts.
Leather is set to be huge through 2013, so the sooner you get on board with this style tip the quicker your jacket will be broken in and looking brilliant.
If you are more of a denim man then long may that continue, however you are missing a trick if you do not own a pair of coloured chinos. Go for a deep red for a garment that will match almost anything.
It doesn’t matter whether you go for a cardigan or jumper here, as long as you have this summer and winter essential that is great both formally or for a more casual outfit.
The blazer is the ultimate in men’s jackets, even after years of being so popular. Buy yourself a standalone casual number independent from your tailoring, to add a sophisticated slant to a chinos and t-shirt look.
Get these ten items in your closet now, and ensure you are never left behind in the style stakes.

These are one of my favorite shoes from my collection. I fell in love with its look, craft, and versatility–three very important things that I look for when purchasing shoes. I love that they are lightweight and very comfortable, so I do not have to worry about my feet hurting. However, they do run a full-size large, but other than that they are amazing shoes.
I must admit, when I first saw these shoes I was not a fan, they did not really stand out to me. However, after a while I started to noticed its beauty, from the detail to the shoes’ overall craft. And as you probably guessed, I bought them. I like these shoes because of their versatility, they can be worn for every occasion. But, they do run large, so I had to order a full-size down. In spite of its weird sizing, I am happy that I bought them and I recommend these shoes to everyone.

I love messenger bags, they are less bulky than backpacks and more convenient. Plus, they can add maturity to an outfit. Do not get me wrong, I still wear backpacks, I own three, but messenger bags still take the cake. When shopping for messenger bags, choose one that compliments your style. For example, if neon green is not apart of your style, do not get it. I cannot tell you how many men I have seen with messenger bags that does not ‘fit’ them–do not be that guy. I understand the concept of taking risks, but, be cautious.

I like to think of myself as someone who does not follow the rules of fashion. You know, those unwritten rules –no white after Labor Day, no brown and black (there are exceptions), etc.—but I sometimes find myself falling into it. Take colored jeans for example. Yesterday, I sat on my bed for about 30 minutes debating on whether or not I should pack away my brightly colored jeans.
Do not get me wrong, I understand wearing bright colors during the fall-winter season is pretty unusual, but does it really matter? It is not like you will be arrested if you are wearing a choral pant in the middle of December. People always stress individuality, but where should the line be drawn; how can we differentiate between uniqueness and awkwardness?
I guess it will have to depend on the person, if he feel like wearing bright colors–white included–in the fall, then by all means, do it. Hell, I wore a white jean October. But, be prepared to get looks of confusion from the “fashion police.” And I say that with all of the sarcasm in the world.

As I was walking through Soho, it seemed as if every other person in New York City owned a denim vest. I turned to my right there were a group of kids wearing them, I turned to my left, there was a couple with matching vests. I went into a store, there were several people waiting on-line wearing them. It seemed like a denim vest invasion.
But why, what is the big deal with denim vests? To answer this question, I looked at my own denim vest and thought about what made me buy it. And the answer is simple–versatility. Not only can denim vests go with almost any outfit, but it adds personality. So, it is understandable why people are obsessed with them.
