2012: The year of the man
Trend experts across the globe have declared 2012 'the year of the man' and we couldn't agree more. A renewed interest in looking sharp means that fashion for guys just got a whole lot more interesting. Forget boring shirts and pants combos, it's the season of the modern day dandy! Dapper details like pocket squares, interesting prints, and bow ties recall a time when men dressed to impress.
Guys, now is the time to be bold with your look and break the fashion rules your mama taught you. Suit up 2012-style for the next event on the social calendar in a quirky printed shirt, jaunty bow tie, shorts and a blazer. Shorts and a jacket are the new cool, in more ways than one.
Accessories are the real key to nailing the modern day dandy look, so invest in gentlemanly staples like a good tie (no character ties, please!), a pair of braces, fun socks and a hat of your choice (our bet is on the woven trilby).
