In honor of Father’s Day – The Complete Guide to Choosing a Tie. (Share with your loved ones, so they do it right!)
A great list from The Attire Club. I especially like #5. Listening will get you so far in life
My thermostat says -1 degree. It’s time for the man-fur! Calm down PETA, it’s a faux-man-fur (FMF). The picture really says it all. Perfect for erands to The Home Depot, a drink at the Golf Club to retire the February minimum, of course – church, and even a casual dinner with the fam at Chili’s.
I’m a growing fan of direct order clothing from Korea. I’m liking their approach to slim fit and the prices are fantastic! The only problem is the sizing. My 6’1″, 180 pound European frame doesn’t quite jive with the Asian sizes. I end up returning 1 out of 3 orders. This one worked out though – Korean XXL fits like a glove!
No need to exclusively sport the puffy jacket this time of year. The FMF allows weathering the winter chill in style.

First impressions matter. Set yourself up for success!
We’re in that great time of year where the new exciting Spring/Summer lines are beginning to line the shelves. If you’re sick of winter already, you can at least picture yourself on the horizon, sporting these lighter fashions. It’s also a time for incredible sales on the leftover pre-Christmas inventories. You can score big, and still get a few months of in-year utility till spring. I’ll continue to share these as they come in.
I’m focused on the new ultra light puffy vests. I find the Uniqlo and Northface brands in particularly interesting, both for warmth and fashion. As I mentioned in a previous blog Trending: an Overcoatless Winter, these warm, sleek vests can fashionably replace the winter overcoat.
I was at the midtown NYC Uniqlo this week and tried several on. There are tons of great, pastel colors, and they are truly super light. Thin too. I’d say about 50% less bulky than the Lands End one I own (which isn’t all that bulky either). Only one issue – they WEREN’T ON SALE!
Now at $49.50, they are very affordable. I’d put them at parity for quality and fashion against the Northface (selling for $130). But this is the season for DEALS, and $49.50 is the everyday price! I’m in stalking mode for the big sale. Will keep you posted.

Loving these kicks! Adding them to my acquisition list.
5 weeks later – how’d everyone do? I put on three pounds, well within the range of norm (and this is the day after New Years eve and where many an IPA was had, plus the 3AM pizza).
Cable knit zip with a faux fur collar. Loving the faux, and craving more. 2013 could be the year of faux.
