    Cravat

    Juni 2nd, 2015

    A cravat is a plain strip of cloth, worn tied around the neck, which originated in men’s military uniforms in the 1630’s and is the forerunner of the modern neck tie. The original purpose of the cravat is still debated but it is thought to have been used to hide stains on shirts or as a psychological protection during battle, shielding the neck from injury. The cravat was worn by men and women for two centuries before it started to be referred to as a “tie”.

    Ascot Tie

    September 5th, 2014

    The ascot tie often referred to as day cravat as opposed to the elegant and formal dress cravat is a more casual neck tie that became popular in Great Britain in the early 20th century and was derived from the type of neck tie British dandies such as Beau Brummell used to wear in the early 19th century. An ascot tie is usually made of a light, more valuable printed fabric such as woven silk and is worn with wide pointed wings attached with a tie clip or pin over the chest.

    Tie

    September 12th, 2013

    A tie is a long slim strip of fabric that is tied around the collar of a shirt and is closed in a tie knot in the front, covering the buttons of the shirt. It is an alternated form of the bow tie and was first worn in the 17th century by the high society. Ties can be made of many fabrics such as cotton, silk, polyester, wool and leather in different colors and patterns. Next to the color, the knot is the most important part of a tie with over 180 variations of tying it. The width of a tie is determined by the current trend. Ties today are worn for business and formal events or as a fashion statement. Some ties are worn for identification of different groups such as schools or clubs especially in England.

    Fashion Styleguide: The bombshell has been dropped

    Januar 11th, 2011

    I like men with balls. Guy’s who have the guts to step out of the box and go for edgy outfits. Dude’s who are widely known role models within their peer group. Poser’s who strike you down with their fashionable appearance. In short: Male Bombshells. But since I know about the prudish attitude in this country let’s give them a more neutral name. Let’s call them ‘Stilisto’s’.

    So whether you are already a Stilisto, or you are working on becoming one, the following ‘styleguide’ will give you some inspiration you might haven’t thought of yet. Since I’m talking here to all of you advanced Stilisto’s I don’t want to waste my time starting from the scratch. It’s obvious that you have a black or grey washed skinny jeans sitting somewhere in your closet. Use them as the base of this outfit and combine it with sneakers that resemble the one displayed in the picture below.

    Next: Throw on either a long-sleeve shirt or a T-Shirt and combine it with a grey vest. If you go with a long-sleeve shirt or T-Shirt underneath the vest, please don’t button up the vest. It has to be open for this kind of casual style. If you want this outfit to be pumped up combine it with a black or white button down shirt. In this case you should close up the vest though.

    To make your stylish appearance more interesting team up this outfit with a hat and shoulder bag. If you’d like to add more accessories I’d recommend a nice wrist-watch with a dark leather band. A fancy black belt would be also a win for this style. But watch out: You have to remember that either the accessories or the bag has to resemble the color of your boots. Oh and guy’s, don’t forget the sexy slim tie which is definitely an eye-catcher within this combination. The tie would work either way with the casual shirt-style or the more formal button down shirt style.

    That’s it for today. Oh and please let me know if you can feel your balls while wearing this outfit. I’m curious to hear all your stories soon. Stay dry.

    #1 – ASOS Jersey Vest – $35.00
    #2 – ASOS Slim Tie – $10.34
    #3 – Fedora Hat – $9.99
