Tying the knot

  
  
   

What do you get when you blend friends & family with tacos & tequila? Answer…..a great engagement party. I made a few calls and asked for a non humid sunny Saturday, and no one was disappointed. As you know, planning a wedding is a piece of cake.  Having a long loving marriage, that’s when you have to roll up your sleeves and put in the work.

Suit: Hickey Freeman

Shirt: HUGO BOSS

Bowtie: Robert Talbott

Shoes: To Boot New York

Timepiece: HUGO BOSS

Beard oil: Solo Noir

With my fiancé going with an all white ensemble and gold crown, I went with a made to measure suit from Hickey Freeman. Loved the plaid print when I saw the swatch, and decided that a three-piece suit would be great to have. The fabric was an earth tone color with a hint of grey and blue, and wore a solid white spread collar shirt. When wearing a suit with a pattern, you want to wear a solid color shirt, otherwise the two patterns fight each other, and look too busy.

When choosing my shoes and accessories, I went with the chestnut color brogue lace up shoe with matching belt and leather pilot watch. Since my mentor was the “bowtie King”, I went with one that was bold enough to stand out and complimented the suit.

Men’s Fashion Week 2015

  
The inaugural NYFWM event may have been only four days, but it started and ended with a bang. The Council of Fashion Designers of America, in conjunction with numerous sponsors, made sure that the event was a hit. Skylight Clarkson Sq. in NYC, was the main hub and venue for the displays and shows.  Designers such as John Varvatos, Todd Snyder, Michael Bastian & J Lindeberg presented their S/S 16′ collections with high expectations, and they delivered.

  
A “who’s who” of menswear insiders and influencers, that will decide what hits your favorite retail stores were in attendance. There was a buzz in the air at the intersection of Washington St. & Houston St. as it became a giant runway for people who love fashion, and those swept up in the excitement.

  
Within NYFW, the CAPSULE show, featured seven independent brands,highlighted by British designers BAARTMANS and SIEGEL as well as Matthew Miller. 

   
 

Throughout the week, GQ magazine’s executive stylist Brett Fahlgren was on the scene interviewing guests and the designers as the official CFDA correspondent.

The S/S 16′ collection from Anzevino Getty featured clothing that looked stylish, comfortable, and functional.  Accessories that matched similiar fabrics which the models were wearing, were a big hit with guests as well.  

As NYFWM came to a close, this event was a great platform showcasing the best designs. Steven Kolb and his team at the CFDA did an amazing job. Every lifestyle brand from Ovadia and Sons to Todd Snyder had key pieces that guys will want to have. With this new energy and menswear on the rise, it’s ok for guys to shop, and look cool at the same time.

Nolcha Fashion Week 2014

Nolcha Fashion Week may get overshadowed by its big brother NYFW, but it’s still a great event.  For independent fashion designers, this may be the only platform they have to get there designs and name in front of the media, stylists, and hopefully new consumers.  The recent show I attended was fantastic, and Pier 59 Studios in NYC was a fantastic space for this event.  Due to the lack of menswear designers, I turned my eye to the crowd to see what guys were wearing.
