Tailor Made

Mr. Mobile: These days most people go out and buy suits in stores and then take them to their tailor to get it fitted. Why not cut out the middle man? Getting a tailor made suit will fit you better, is more personalized, and is often cheaper (depending on the fabric you want). It can be tough to find a good tailor, but having a tailor that you like can prove to be invaluable. This here is a tailor's tool kit; fabric, belts, and ties... all the makings of great suit.


The Up and Coming

Sir Sway: Unfortunately summer is coming to an end, but with that in mind we can look forward to the new looks for fall and the creative innovations of fashion.  I gotta say, every year I am stunned with the creativity of designers.  What I have been noticing in the past is that men’s fashion often trails women’s by one year.  So expect to see guys wearing longer loose-fitting shirts and someone to look up to is Alexander Wang because his shirts this year are unbelievable for both the men's and women's collection (http://shop.alexanderwang.com/shop/#/t/men/). As far as sweaters, I want to see more ‘knitteds’ with thicker knotting as well as lots of brown and navy colors.  However I do not want to see people pulling out old turtlenecks from their closets.  I am thinking grey straight leg denim is going to be a big thing this fall and winter, keep in mind folds and creases have only been in style for a year so go with long ones, and if worst comes to worst have them hemmed.  Gold watches with leather straps were huge at the end of last year in Europe plus watches can be worn to dinner or to class and still be elegant.  Also something to keep in mind is sunglasses are not only for the summer.  Sunglasses complete looks throughout the year whether you are in a bathing suit or sporting a tuque. The most important thing to remember is not one style defines fashion so keep doing what you’re doing because that’s what makes North America so unique.

The Land Before Time

Sir Sway: The blog is still young and there is still a lot to fix but after the last few kinks are rung out, it will be running nice and smoothly. I would like to say thank you to a few people who helped me start this blog. Thank you to Choi my editor and thank you to Nilou G who has helped me improve my photography.  Prestige will also be featuring some of Nilou's photography from time to time so keep an eye out for her.
