Menswear Monday: Business Casual, Updated.

Guys, you may think that mundane Mondays are “business as usual”, but we’d like to invite you to shake up your work week with business casual clothing and shoes that are anything but boring and stuffy! 

For work settings that are more on the laidback side, or if your office partakes in “Casual Fridays”, you can’t go wrong with a great-fitting button-up shirt in either a neutral solid or a subtle print. Pair your button-ups with everyday trousers in a more relaxed fabric like twill or cotton.

Remember: the key to avoiding a sloppy business-casual look is to pay attention to fit. Make sure your shirt shoulder seam sits cleanly right at the shoulders and your pant hem isn’t pooling at the bottom. And yes, it IS worth it to get your workwear basics altered by a tailor if it means the difference between looking casual yet professional and just plain unprofessional.

Menswear Monday: Tropical-Print Shirts

As the temperatures steadily climb, we’re shifting our focus on tropical prints that remind us of sunny summer days by the beach. Printed men’s shirts are definitely one of the season’s biggest must haves, and tropical printed shirts are the ultimate in summertime style! Below are a few of my favorites; some of which are really easy to dress up or down depending on your needs.

As always, when purchasing new pieces for your wardrobe, great fit should be the first requirement. Obviously, you need to love the pattern, but how it fits on you is extremely important.

Short sleeve button-ups are a great option for rocking a tropical print, particularly if you’d like to dress up your look a bit. You can wear them nice pair or shorts or slim-fit denim. You can even dress them up underneath a suit for a cool take on date night. Coordinate the shirt with colors that are found in the print to match with your bottoms or suit.

For a more casual feel, the tropical print t-shirt and tank top are a great way to go. These are the perfect laid-back options for summer BBQs, days at the beach and day parties. Again, pair them with relaxed shorts (or simple board shorts) or nice denim.

When it comes to tropical print shirts, you can opt to stay cool and classic with more subdued prints or go for a more fashion-forward look with bolder hues and patterns. It’s all about pairing like colors together when styling your looks. The trick is not to be too matchy-matchy, but rather, coordinated.

Hopefully these small tips will help you create a few new tropical-inspired looks for your warm-weather wardrobe. Enjoy!

Big Love for our Favorite Guy: 9 Looks for Dad

No matter how old we may be, our dad is always bigger than life! After all, dad was the one who could scare away the monsters from under our beds and in our closets and saved us from the icky bugs. His mere presence kept us from being attacked and eaten by bears during walks in the woods -- even if it was just a wooded path, in a city park, in the middle of downtown.

Father’s Day is that special time every year where we give the fathers and father figures in our lives an extra special thank you for all those times they kept the bears away, built us a tree fort, took the spiders outside, and didn’t wear black socks with sandals when out with us in public. Even if the person you call dad is actually an uncle, an older brother, an older cousin, or your mom’s best friend from way back, it’s always nice to take a special day to thank him for always being there for you, to guide you- and keep away bears.   

For those larger-than-life father figures who are larger in life, sometimes it’s a challenge to find clothes that fit well and make them look great. Sometimes, it feels like all you’re left with as options are oversized t-shirts and all variations of black. Thank goodness for great brands like Nautica, Columbia and Tommy Bahama who make great big & tall men’s clothing options that score big points on both fit and style!

I’ve chosen a few looks this week to tell dad thanks while getting him ready for a night out with his guys, a day on the links or relaxing at home with his favorite people in the world -- his family!

Menswear Monday: Camp Shirts

As temperatures begin to rise, it’s time to shift your style to match the season. Why not add a printed camp shirt to the mix? You may ask yourself, “What is a camp shirt?”

A traditional camp shirt is often crafted from a luxurious fabric such as silk or rayon, with short sleeves and a relaxed, straight cut. Keep in mind that the hem usually falls at hip level and is not meant to be tucked into pants. The “camp” collar can be worn open and spread, and is usually identified with a button-loop detail. These specific shirts are typically known for their iconic tropical-inspired prints, but are also available in solids and a variety of other eye-catching prints.

The great thing about camp shirts is that they can easily be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. For example, a Hawaiian-print camp shirt paired with nice dress slacks and shoes is a great option for a dinner out with friends.  

You can also pair a camp shirt with solid flat-front shorts and flip flops, for a more laid-back look that’s perfect for any weekend BBQ. Don’t count out a camp shirt for that beach wedding either! Tommy Bahama has pioneered the camp shirt market by offering a variety of prints and solids with unique details that can easily be appropriate for any destination wedding.

Keep in mind that fashion is all about experimentation. Make sure to have fun with the variety of prints available! A good rule of thumb to remember when cultivating the perfect summer outfit is to not go overboard with mixing prints. If you choose a camp shirt with a fun print, make sure your bottom is a solid color or a more subtle, smaller print in a coordinating color. You can’t go wrong with lightweight linen shorts or classic khaki flat fronts!

Happy Shopping!
