The leather jacket is one of the most potent garments in menswear

Posted by admin on

It’s a powerful weapon if you know how to use it, but has the potential to look truly terrible if styled poorly. Get it right and you’re Marlon Brando. Get it wrong and you’re a mid-life crisis personified. Half the battle is wearing it with confidence. Nothing looks more contrived than a guy in a leather jacket who seems unsure of himself. In order to really nail that devil-may-care, rockstar air that goes hand in hand with this piece of outerwear, you need to approach it with conviction. And that’s a hell of a lot easier if you actually know...

Posted by admin on

When it comes to keeping up with the latest trends, it’s no longer enough to keep abreast of seasonal fashion weeks and pick up the odd men’s magazine. Gone are the days where you could rely on the same capsule wardrobe for each six-month period, with things moving so fast in 2020 that it can be difficult to keep on top of the latest look du jour.

Budd is one of only a handful of truly authentic...

First things first: a “lounge suit” is nothing more than a traditional suit that you’d wear to the office or an event, outside of black tie, which requires a dinner suit

The confusion for men comes from invitations with Lounge Suit stated as the dress code. This translates simply to a smart suit worn with a shirt and tie. These days, those invitations are few and far between – because the need to wear a suit is fast diminishing outside of all but the stiffest professions. Indeed, given the rise of business casual and the comfort-driven nature of modern menswear, a suit now is more typically worn for pleasure and socialising than it is for work.

In menswear, there are a select few garments that work harder, do more and demand less than all the rest

Posted by admin on

Things like a pair of leather sneakers, some slim-fitting selvedge denim, and a well-made Oxford button-down. These are items that can be called upon in all seasons, worn with any outfit and relied on year after year. One of the key players in this supergroup of uber-versatile all-stars is undoubtedly the overshirt. Falling somewhere between a light jacket and a heavy shirt, this does-it-all wonder garment is more deserving of wardrobe-essential status than most. Typically, it features a classic collar, a few patch pockets, a slightly thicker fabrication than regular shirt styles and a marginally looser cut. But before you...
