Snowed In?

How do you spend your weekends when it starts to snow? It was a lucky coincidence that the weekend NYC got its first wintery mix, the Bearded Dapper Gents decided to have a photo walk in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Weather like this makes me want to bundle up and drink hot chocolate. New York may not get the blizzards it did a few years ago, but the key to surviving winters out here is to layer up. Since I’ve been wearing a lot of darker colors recently, I wanted to warm things up with some earth tones.

In addition to the basic hat and gloves to keep my head and hands warm, I decided to mix in shades of camel and brown. The dark brown check shirt was a nice contrast to the donegal cardigan sweater. Keeping me warm was the wool / cashmere overcoat and a camo scarf to keep the chill off of my neck.

If you don’t own a coat that you can wear to the office or in a casual setting, now is the time to buy one. Some of your favorite stores have either a 100% wool coat or wool cashmere blend on sale. What are some of your favorites to wear when bad weather hits your area?

Camel overcoat: H&M | Cardigan: Express

Shirt: Nordstrom | Timepiece: TW Steel

Hart of Menswear


  
  
  

Welcome to NYFWM. As the fashion world continues to push the seasons faster and faster to retail, NYC once again has the spotlight on it. Hosting NYFWM as well menswear trade shows such as Mrket, ProjectNY, & Capsule, this is the time when new brands and established labels show off their hard work.

The hardest working man this summer has to be David Hart. In addition to his own collection, David collaborated with American manufacturer Hart Schaffner Marx.  Established in 1887, HSM continues to evolve it’s tailored clothing. Inspired by pictures taken by Slim Aarons, Hart incorporates textured fabrics, double breasted suits, and floral trousers to make wearers feel as if they were visiting the French Riviera.



David Hart’s personal collection, brings out the laid back vibe of Southern California.  With a Beach Boys inspired show, the tailored pieces were highlighted by a yellow & black Samoan/ tiki print tuxedo. Solid color & floral shorts as well as color blocked polos & knit tops were key looks for the Sportswear collection.  Although this collection showcased Spring / Summer 17′, the airbrushed tees are available now.

Miami getaway

                

There’s nothing like getting on a plane, and flying the friendly skies. With a much needed break from NYC, Miami was the first place on the list. The Fontainebleau Hotel became my residence for three days, and it lived up to the hype. Whether you play by the pool or play on the beach, the opulence of this area is sure to recharge your batteries. Travelling to Miami, keep it comfortable on the plane, but don’t forget to pack your swimming trunks, sunglasses, and sunscreen.  I can’t tell you what to pack for those South Beach nights, but a nice pair of shoes is a must.

When people think of Vince Camuto fashion, they typically think about women’s shoes or handbags. Yet, the house of Vince Camuto continues to evolve, with its menswear division leading the growth.

The tailored suiting pieces are a modern fit, and you’re likely to find a variety of textures. The Sportswear line is built strongly on layering pieces, highlighted by vests and leather jackets.  Accessories are a winner as well, as Vince Camuto adds tie bars, cufflinks, and men’s bags to their lineup.  One highlight for me was the split suede leather ombre duffle bag.  If you can’t wait until next Fall to add Vince Camuto to your wardrobe, here are a few sites you can visit.
