The {local} manly gift guide

Lauren Larsen

Oh. my. gosh, it is almost Christmas! I can't even believe how fast these past couples of months have flown by - it literally feels like summer was only a couple of weeks ago. 

I recently wrote a guest post for a couple of my fave babes here in Calgary (www.simplyglamgirls.com) and decided that I would post here as well, just in case I have a few people looking for last minute gift ideas for their guys!

3 ways to wear a camel coat

Lauren Larsen

This season's hot jacket colour - camel. Sure it may not be as versatile as a black or grey top coat, but it is getting more and more attention, and certainly turns more heads. If you're one of the guys who is digging the camel this season, or if you're wondering how and if you can wear it both professionally and casually, this blog is for you {and perhaps it will inspire you to go out and get one for yourself}.

Men's fragrance, from a woman's perspective.

Lauren Larsen

Fragrance - it's one of those things that can make or break your first impression. All girls appreciate a guy who smells good, but sometimes your version of 'good' and her version of 'good' don't necessarily align. I'm talking about those insanely powerful, overbearing, Axe-style, gym locker smelling colognes that fill every room you enter with unwanted manliness (I'm sorry if you're a girl reading this and like those smells, because I'm about to steer guys far, far away from them).

How to make your wardrobe winter ready

Lauren Larsen

It’s a yearly event, that morning when it dawns on us that the weather has changed, and we’ve entered the inevitable winter season. The frost on the ground, the chill in the air, and the visible breath that sets off the same familiar response – it is time to start layering up. The topcoats come out, we check our sweater collection to ensure we have enough to last the season, and we hit the stores in search of toques, gloves, and those chunky plastic shoe covers.

10 things to consider when purchasing a custom suit.

Lauren Larsen

As a menswear stylist, one of my biggest challenges has always been suit shopping for my clients. It was nearly impossible to find something that would fit perfectly off-the-rack, and even if I was able to find something that was acceptable, majority of the time many alterations would have to be made to make it fit properly. This added extra costs to the already high price of the suit, and was frustrating for the guys who had to pay for it. It didn’t take me long to realize that custom suiting is the way to go for most men.

Summer Style

Lauren Larsen

Is it just me or is this summer one of the best we've had in a while? It could be me, because this is the first in a long time I'm not cooped up in an office (sorry, not sorry), or it truly could just be the best yet. I mean, we do have to consider the 2015 Calgary Tornado that really took it's toll on the city #wewillrebuild, but besides that, the sun has been out, the days have been hot, and many of us have been enjoying the rivers, lakes, mountains, golf courses, festivals and local events to their fullest {I know I have}.

Calgary Stampede Style

Lauren Larsen

It's that time of year again! This weekend kicks off the Calgary Stampede, and I'm sure all of you cowboys {or once a year cowboys} are prepping for a long 10 days of debauchery. Because stampede style mostly consists of plaid, denim and cowboy hats, it is arguable difficult to mess up, but believe me, I've seen it all and this blog is intended to help you avoid being the guy who didn't throw together your stampede ensemble quite right.

Spring & summer's must have alternative to denim.

Lauren Larsen

Cotton twill trousers (CTT), commonly referred to as chinos (but we prefer the former to the latter because it just sounds that much smarter), are this season’s must have alternative to denim. Because of the versatile fabric, CTTs are available in [almost] every colour and pattern under the sun. If you’re a neutrals guy, you’re covered… if you’re into prints and bold patterns, no problem.

How to wear prints for spring!

Lauren Larsen

Spring is here and if you haven't started thinking about what new pieces your wardrobe is missing to suit the warmer weather, I've got you covered! Covered in prints, that is. Because a great print helps you make a style statement, in a big way.

How to land that first date.

Lauren Larsen

The first date is always the hardest to nail down. You’re not sure if she is smiling at you or at the person behind you… her vibes are hard to read and what if she has a boyfriend? What if she flat out says no? There are so many things that will inevitably go through your head before you ask her for her contact info.

Taylor Stitch | Wayfaring Jacket

Lauren Larsen

I don't normally write posts exclusively about specific brands {unless you scroll back yonder to when I was doing brand spotlight's} but, I recently stumbled over the brand Taylor Stitch and fell lustfully in love with their garments. One in particular... the wayfaring jacket, and I felt the need to share!

Spring Wardrobe Essentials

Lauren Larsen

Spring is in the air, almost, and before it hits us in full swing, we need to take a look at our closets to ensure our wardrobes are as prepared as we are for the warmer weather.

Each gentleman should have the appropriate number of transitional and weather appropriate pieces in his wardrobe to ensure readiness for all spring occasions, like when your buddy calls with that last minute BBQ invite.

Five things to add some style to your bachelor pad.

Lauren Larsen

So, you hit it off with her on your first, second and third dates, and this (might) be the night she comes back to your place. You've hired a cleaner, your toilet seat is down, you've stocked up on the wine but you still aren't sure if your pad will be given the female stamp of approval (because that is something that is hard to get).
