It’s Boy Time

by admin on May 26, 2010

It’s been one week now since I’ve launched my fashion blog and I would like to thank you all for following me.
I have received a few emails from guys asking me to give them a few ideas. Come on guys! As if I would forget about you (I am a guy as well).

The winter here in Australia has finally arrived and I have already seen a lot of jackets around town, so it’s time for us to impress. Let’s be honest, there is nothing more stylish than seeing a guy wearing a beautiful fitted jacket. So guys, I would like to help you to find your winter jacket.

When you go out there and look for your jacket (please! please! please!) buy your size, not two sizes too big. I have spotted some guys out there wearing jackets which don’t fit well (big, long, tight, etc) WRONG!!

Ask yourself, do I fit or do I hang in this jacket? Remember, the mirror is everybody’s best friend. If you need to wear a sweater underneath, do so but don’t buy a jacket that’s too baggy.

A few materials you should look for are cashmere, cotton (soft), wool or moleskin. Don’t hesitate to ask the salesperson what the jacket material is you are buying or have a sneak peak and try to find the label inside the jacket.

When you are looking for your winter jacket also look at the length in the arms and body.
ARMS: The length shouldn’t go lower than approximately 1cm below the wrist.
BODY: The perfect length of your jacket is when the back of the jacket touches the bottom of your bum.
If these are too long you can always have them altered.

I like all kinds of jackets. Single or double breasted, peacoat, trench coat and military look as long as they are fitted well.

My favourite Australian label without a doubt is CALIBRE and I love this double breasted jacket. It’s a combination of cotton and nylon which also makes it water resistant for extra versatility. It can be your signature jacket. They make the most comfortable pieces ever.

In this look I have also added a slim fit shirt, skinny tie, stretchy denim/wax jeans and brown leather boots also from CALIBRE. I think this combination is a great look for winter.

And last but not least, a nice perfum. Let me introduce you to my favourite obsession at the moment.
Prada Infusion D’Homme

By now you should feel like a millon dollars. That doesn’t mean you should forget to make a complement to your favourite girl. If you don’t have one today this may be your lucky day.

I think I like the coat best . . . tight look over all.

Excellent post, Lee, and I totally love the outfit in the photo and the boots. Urban but masculine. Love.

When the Independent Fashion Bloggers site ( is back up (it’s an excellent network, and usually very reliable), you should join and absolutely submit this post to Links a la Mode. So few men are blogging about men’s fashion, and even fewer are doing original content.

I hope you’ll also join Bloglovin’ so your fashionista followers can subscribe that way as well. Can’t believe your blog is only a week old!
