The Return of Fifties Cool

The return of fifties cool

The hottest trend in the Spring-Summer collections is Eisenhower-era style-with a youthful , modern twist. The 1950s were a major influence at the latest menswear shows, with cropped jeans, rolled sleeves, and penny loafers on runways from New York to Paris. These fun and easy pieces will let you add a dash of mid-century style to your wardrobe-without looking like you just walked off the Happy Days set.

Short on the sides, but higher and more texturized

How to get it ?
Start with bangs between two and four inches long. Have the sides and back of your hair tapered with scissors ( going shortest around the hairline), the snip the top so your hair get gradually shorter from front to back. finally, ask him to break it up with a straight razor for that layered look.

How to style it?
Towel- dry your hair, then push it back from your forehead so it stands straight up and blow-dry it to lock in the height. Rub a quarter size amount of product between your palms and run it through your hair. For longer locks, use hair spray for all-day hold

Men – Five Key Pieces for Autum-Winter

paulsmith

After a glorious summer it’s time to start planning and purchasing a winter wardrobe. Close attention needs to be given to fabrics, colours, textures and silhouettes to ensure that the transition from one season to the next is executed seamlessly and stylishly. The final touch to add a flourish of distinction are some directional accessories and you’re ready to face the cold with confidence.

Key menswear trends for the season that will add an injection of contemporary cool to your existing look include:

The Perfectly Tailored Slim Suit – An expertly tailored suit that flatters your proportions and height is an investment that reaps dividends. The popularity of the slim silhouette continues with navy and shades of blue an important colour palette for winter and double-breasted and 3 piece styles making a come-back. Alias Tom offers a selection of the finest brands including Armani Collezione, Paoloni, Paul Smith London and Brian Dales.

The Outerwear – With colder winter days demanding functional outerwear, Alias Tom has a variety of solutions to staying warm in an urban environment. Variations range from from the traditional tailored crombie coat from Paul Smith London to a more contemporary hybrid pea coat from Paoloni
(with an integrated zip-up warmer) that looks as well with a suit as a dressed down polo neck and jeans.

The Essential Jeans – In terms of jeans, the slim-leg has assumed the status of classic – the boot-cut shape is over. Skinny and straight legs are the only stylish options with fabric options from traditional cotton indigo from Armani Jeans to soft comfortable corduroys from Paul Smith Jeans.

The Chunky Knit – Statement knits are a major story for this winter – chunky cables, moss and blackberry stitches and tweed effect yarns all add impact and texture to knitwear. Detailing includes shawl collars, suede trim, varsity emblems, and colour blocking. Alias Tom has a range of snug stylish
options from Brian Dales, Armani Jenas and Havana & Co.

The New Blazer – The traditional blazer has been given an overhaul for Autumn/Winter. In an array of
textural fabrics from corduroy to velvet to rich tweeds, it is best worn slim with casually
pushed-up sleeves and statement buttons to add interest. Again shades of navy and blue dominate and can now be mixed with black, grey and charcoal to add tonal variations.A really versatile garment
that can be worn for casual dinners or a night out with the lads over jeans and a knit
or in a more formal context over slim tailored pants and a crisp tailored Caliban shirt. Finish with
a colourful scarf and the look is complete.
