!Señores!

Springtime is around the corner and that facto tickles the sartorialist in me! Me encanta sprucing up my ensembles with colores brillante! Springtime is when natures most vibrant palette is showcased. The petals, the warm sunrises, la fruta…all of it shouts life. As such I wanted to give a spring preview.

Technically, we’re still in winter. In fact we’re in the middle of winter for some parts of the country. But here is a way to insert irreverently insert some color into your winter wardrobe. When you do it, make it…

Boots; to wear or not to wear…that is the question!

Kicks, Men's Fashion, Men's Shoes, Men's Style, Menswear, Shoes, Style Tips, Uncategorized, Vouge, well dressed

Seňores,

When I was a child, I spoke as a child…I thought as un niňo, pero now I am un adulto, I put away childish things!!!

As a kid, I didn’t like boots. See, I’m from Texas and this is what I knew about boots:

Now there is nothing wrong with a good pair of cowboy boots (like I said, I am from Texas), but they – as all footwear – have a place…una casa where they would feel comfortable being showcased!! And as a kid, that house wasn’t mine. Now I’m still not a huge fan of cowboy boots, but I have learned a bit about its cousins…

Vamos!

Chukka Boot
It is thought that this boot is derived from the sport of Polo. The name Chukka, as reported by our amigos at The Gentlemen’s Gazette, is actually the name of a period during the game of Polo. No wonder this boot is so classic!! This timeless boot is best worn with a heavier pant or jeans! It’s the boot that can be dressed up, or casually displayed! The boot comes in suede and leather, and the toe box can vary in width.
Suggested wear – Khakis, denim or chinos.

Combat Boot
The evolution of this specialized specimen of of footwear has been fun to watch. As the name suggests, it was originally (and still is) used for the brave men and women that serve their country in the military. Nowadays, however, the combat boot has a more glamourous reputation. The combat boot has become a favorite in urban and streetwear. It’s a versatile boot that can be worn casually and slightly dressy. The boot, however, always adds a rugged touch to all outfits.
Suggested wear – denim, chinos, cotton sweats pants, pant leg slightly tucked in.

Chelsea Boot (dress boot)
To many this boot is known as the dress boot. It became popular in the 60’s and it’s demand hasn’t waned since. Generally, they have a high, close fit ankle to avoid the ever-irritating flopping! Though it’s known as the dress boot, it can still be casually worn.
Suggested wear – with slacks, a suit or jeans and a blazer.

Rain Boots
I used to think that the toe of a rain boot looked like a ducks bill!!! (Don’t judge me, lol) – I was still growing in style. Ohhhh but now…now I understand all that is the rain boot! As the name implies it’s boot made for wet weather. However this is not it’s only use. They have now morphed into a very fashionable option for footwear.
Suggested wear – jeans and winter/raincoat.

Motorcycle Boots
You know these…the ones that bikers made famous. The ones Erik Estrada diefied along with aviator sunglasses!!! Motorcycle boots are a fav among rockers and…you guessed it, motorcyclists!!! Movies in the 80’s always portrayed the hot, bad boy with the stoned washed jeans, leather motorcycle jacket with the wide belt and crisp white tee. That was the symbol of sexiness then…and guess what, many women still find it just as sexy.
Suggested wear – see previous sentence, lol!

Topsider/Brockton Boots
This boot is a favorite among teens. With varying ankle height, una hombre joven o adolescente can get different looks from them. The most popular brands, and very good quality, are Polo and Sperry. This type of boot is a casual in nature but can be a great juxtaposition and used to “prep” up an urban, street look.

Do note that these are just categories and there are many…MUCHO variations of each. Some with higher ankles, slimmer toe boxes, thicker heels, wing tips, etc. The details are simply a personal preference. Find the style you like and run with it!

Señores!

It has been said that clothes don’t make el hombre…they make el hombre look great! And I agree! However looking great just “aint” enough.  Our outfits have to be balanced. We can’t have a black belt with brown oxfords (I. Cant. Stand. That!) – or gold cufflinks with a gun metal watch. If we as fashioneurs can balance our looks, then we should be able to balance our health and lifestyles.

Fit is the new fashion!  Check out some below F.I.T.s (Fitness Inspired Trendsetters).

God is in the details!

Uncategorized

 

 

 

Have you ever seen a cat in an outfit and it was nice, but you looked closely and saw a belt that made you say “God d@$%”! Or Maybe it was a light pin stripe or window pane on a shirt and in you head you uttered “Oh my God” with a sense of orgasmic disgust. Perhaps it was the stitching in the jeans or the shape of a pocket that made you say, in an admiring whisper and with the bitter beer face, “God”!

Señores, I’ve been there! I’ve seen a suit that was plain, but the pocket square, tie, and shoes took it to another level. How is this possible? The answer is in your reaction, ‘cuz God is in the details!!!

You can always spice up a boring outfit with an unexpected, yet tasteful detail that will take you from drab to divine. ‘Cuz God is in the details!

 Belts and jewelry will always do the trick!

Wearing designer socks is a conservative way to give a subtle change. (An attaché  and fedora always helps!)

Scarves and glasses are nice juxtapositions to an otherwise conservative look!
