Ovadia & Sons Spring/Summer 2013 Men’s #Lookbook #mensfashion #fashionblogger

Spring is nearly here. Ovadia & Sons’s style is going to be the most out-standing one. Colorful jerseys, that’s going to be the trend.

Hugo Boss. A magnificent 3-piece Hugo Boss suit. Keep it classic thanks to the white shirt and show a nice look with that striped tie. A safe investment if you want to impress someone. Style isn’t as fashion, you can buy fashion, but you have to own your own style.

“Oh, never mind the fashion. When one has a style of one’s own, it is always 20 times better.”

The Internet machine has been great for men’s clothing and men’s clothing sellers like me. But at the same time, it’s been a very bad thing for men’s clothing.

Beautifully staged and photographed pictures have sometimes trumped common sense (‘How can I get my linen suit to not wrinkle?’) A lot of me too-ism exists (‘Wow, that guy looks cool with the wrist beads/lapel pin/pocket square/glasses hanging out from chest pocket/scarf/pocketwatch chain on the vest/wallet chain on the pants/unbuttoned BD collar/back blade of tie showing, so let me do the same thing.’)

You need to be you. There are guys here that dress very in your face. Some get away with it, some don’t.

Your style has to be organic to you. An academic approach to dressing is fine, where the color wheel and textural discourses are brought out to the forefront, and of course we can all learn from places like this and from seeing and hearing others. But you can’t just do what everyone else does and be stylish.

Try different shit out, don’t worry about if your pocket square drops a bit in your pocket, don’t aim to look like a perfectly staged and photographed menswear blogger all day long. Clothing should come alive when you wear it, it moves with you, it wrinkles, pants get frumpy, jacket elbows wrinkle.

You should be as physically and mentally comfortable in a suit as you are in jeans and a tee.

Massimo Dutti gives us some ideas for dressing as a gentleman. It’s good to dress dark from time to time, it makes people focus more on your face and is still very elegant. A black double-breasted coat with a blue tie and shirt, matched with dark chinos and a pair of dark blue bluchers. Just great.

Balmain. Keeping alive the young spirit and giving us this look is just great. Ready for spring? I am.
