Wow, another amazing week! I hope you guys have been enjoying your summer as much as I have (despite the ridiculous snowstorm this week in Calgary).
New York Fashion Week is wrapping up and fall fashion is (almost) in full swing! I've been contently stalking the latest trends and it is safe to say, this is going to be a great season to step up your style game! I can't wait to start helping you build your fall/winter 2014 wardrobe, whether it be digitally or in person.
Here are my top picks this week!
1. Original Chippewa for J.Crew boots.
These boots are great for the fall - they're the perfect combination of trendy and rugged and can be worn with jeans as easily as chino-style pants.
2. Levis Jeans.
I am a huge sucker for a man in Levis. Classic, trendy and super affordable, there is absolutely no reason you shouldn't own a pair. They make different fits and style, from the 511 to the 505, and each has its own unique look. If you are unsure what is best for your body type, feel free to ask or leave a comment below.
3. Sexy scented candles.
A man with a sexy candle burning in his place will go up at least a point. I'm not talking buttercup, floral, vanilla girly stuff, I'm talking manly, musky candles that will make your home (or condo) smell of rich mahogany and leather-bound books... if you know what I mean. My favourite of all time is the Bond No. 9 candle in New Harlem (shown above).
4. Filson bags.
Filson is an all American classic hunting brand, founded in 1897, whose bags are made to last a lifetime. The leather is strong and the canvas is durable enough to last years of tough wear and tear. This bag is not going to go out of style, which is why I think it is worth the investment.
5. Two-toned Warby Parker glasses.
I love the simplistic style of Warby Parker glasses and sunglasses. To me, when it comes to eyewear, less is more - you want your glasses to make a statement without attracting too much attention. The style shown above are a great example of simple yet trendy glasses that can be paired with a suit during the week and with jeans for a casual weekend stroll.
If you have any questions, as always, feel free to drop me a line! I always respond to messages within 12 hours.
