As the weather starts to change, it is time to think of purchasing a few spring essentials to spruce up your wardrobe and keep you looking fresh. We've compiled a brief list of Spring Essentials to get you off to a great start and would be happy to offer additional guidance in-person, on the phone, or via email. And when those April showers bring May flowers remember - a gentleman never forgets his umbrella, and always shares! Mid-Grey and Light Grey Suits: Lighten up your greys, perhaps add a pinstripe, and pair with a light blue or always classic white shirt. A trim custom shirt always does the trick along with a white cotton pocket square for a clean look. Why not spring for a new custom suit as well?
Patterned Shirts: Patterned shirts are huge for Spring 2010, especially in a plaid fabric. You can pick a bold or subtle plaid, but either way it is a must have. You can wear this look to the office or more casual with jeans on the weekend. Custom shirts are one of our specialties and we just received several great pinks and lavender pattern shirtings in from our Italian mills.
Solid or Small Patterned Ties: An easy way to complete a well-put-together look is to finish with a simple, yet perfectly matched and subtle tie. This season solids, tone-on-tone solids (any type of pattern in one solid color...stripes, pindots, etc), and small patterned ties are in.
Pink: Try something pink such as a shirt, tie or pocket square is a great way to brighten up your spring wardrobe.
Sport coat: A sport coat is a great way to transition to the warmer months. Guys are wearing these with a scarf and leather gloves instead of outerwear, we love the look - and so do the ladies. It makes you look put together and casually chic. But make sure you don't just wear your suit jacket! If you decide to opt for a custom sport coat or custom blazer we are happy to help.
Trench Coat: A trench coat or rain coat is a essential piece in your wardrobe that will always be in style and help you avoid getting soaked in April showers. There are many different lengths, styles and colors to chose from. A great start is the classic tan or black coat in three quarter length.
Wing tip Shoes: Brogue wing tips are back in style. These tradition British shoes are very detailed and a nice change from your basic lace ups.
