Men’s Dapper Style & A Red Bow-tie #projectny


We ran into this stylish show-goer browsing menswear at Project NY and had to snap a pic of his put-together look. Summer or not, some guys layer on vintage-inspired style. Some of them, like this guy, really pull it off! He wore a light blue summer jacket with a muted plaid shirt, red polka-dot bow-tie and beige chinos with black loafers. Switch out this jacket with a chambray alternative for fall and you’re good to go.

Denim Tips For Guys: How to Wear a Blazer with Jeans


A cool feature at JCrew.com is an advice page called Jack Knows Best, in which “Jack” dispenses menswear styling tips and act more or less like a fashion concierge (you can even email him!).  One of Jack’s latest tips are how you can wear a blazer with jeans:


“First, pick a clean, slim jean like our 484 in dark indigo or, now that it’s summer, a white jean. No rips, fading or whiskering—keep it simple. Then, go for a textured jacket because it’s a better match for the casual look of denim. Think seersucker or linen for warm months and herringbone or tweed for cooler ones. I think Andy Warhol always did the blazer and 501® jeans look really well—with a little bit of irony.”

3 Men’s Denim Looks Worthy of Kanye’s Approval


For those of you who haven’t been following Kanye West‘s foray into the fashion world, from secretly apprenticing under some well-known fashion houses to becoming a permanent fashion show fixture in Europe, we thought we might shine a light on men’s denim fashion that would earn Kanye’s approval.  We’ve pinned down some key classic looks, inspired by music pal Jay-Z—who is known for rocking double denim—while referencing Kanye’s own penchant for juxtaposing a sartorial suiting look with a sportswear twist.  Throw in a lightweight shirt for spring weather and you’re good.  Tip:  don’t overkill; avoid bling, embroidery and loud, distracting top stitched jeans, and you’ll do just fine.

Your Neighbors Jeans Makes Wearing Colored Denim Easy for Guys


Here at Denim Therapy, we love encouraging our male fans to be adventurous with their jeans. And just as H&M is making neon and pastel jeans attainable for the ladies, a new Urban Outfitters’ brand, Your Neighbors, is opening the colored denim door to guys who may not have been brave enough to try non-blue jeans before.  And with a quality level equal to their BDGs and $58 a pop, it’s a wise investment all around. You can pull off golden yellow jeans, guys. We promise!

What To Wear With Super-Distressed Men’s Selvedge Denim #projectshow


While chatting with Japanese brand KURO Denim, a brand that specializes in exceptionally worn and ragged jeans (read: incredibly comfortable with built-in history), they discussed their customer’s most successful styling technique. When you buy a pair of jeans that’s nearly $500 and look like they’ve been through the war, a hoodie and sneakers don’t do them justice. The brand’s representatives suggest wearing their well-worn jeans with a crisp, button-down shirt and a beautifully tailored wool jacket (KURO has begun to introduce these options in the sportswear component of their line to drive the point home). Opposites attract, and a pair of jeans like these need to be balanced with clean, sharp coordinates.

We Dig This Tenue De Nimes x Armor Lux Dutch Breton Shirt


A Breton stripe shirt and a pair of  jeans is a classic combo that will never go out of style. In fact, it’s safe to say it’s a definite must-have in any wardrobe. And if an Andy Warhol or The Ramones reference isn’t enough to get you on board with this look, then we’re certain this version of the classic by Tenue de Nimes and Armor Lux, dubbed the Dutch Breton, might just do the trick. The red, white, and blue color combo is perfect for any pair of dark jeans or denim jacket. Pair it with a cool combat boot for a modern twist or keep it retro with a cool driving shoe. Get your hand on one at Tenue De Nimes!
