Here are a couple of hand picked trends for this season, featuring beautiful photography and a reinvention of classic looks.

Tips from Esquire: Get the Right Fit
If you’re a member of the one-size-up, I-like-my-jacket-roomy club, the DB suit is not for you. The jacket should hug your sides, the sleeves should be cut slim, and the shoulders should have as little padding as possible. The close fit you get with most of today’s double-breasted suits is essential for pulling it off.
Tips from Esquire: Give the DB Suit a Chance
Used to be that wearing a suit to work was an act of submission, of following a code. But today it’s more like an act of aggression — that in a world in which suiting up is increasingly seen as optional, wearing a suit, much less one of the new breed of slim-cut double-breasted suits, brands you a maverick. The DB suit is swagger incarnate.

Shirt and Tie (Plaid)
Get it from CLM: It is true that you can’t have enough ties in your wardrobe. The important thing, however, is having classic, good quality ties that will not fall away (or out of style) due to the impetuous tides of fashion.

Chances are, you have a preconceived notion about button covers. You probably think they are boring, ugly and unnecessary. But that’s a common misconception that needs to be unlearned. Button covers are actually quite fashionable, and they serve a unique purpose. If they didn’t, then upscale men’s accessory designers wouldn’t waste any time on designing them. But they do — and for good reason.
When you have a tailored shirt with buttons on the cuffs, there’s no room for cufflinks. However, there is plenty of room for button covers. When you are wearing an expensive tailored shirt with buttons on the sleeves, you have to wear button covers as well. Letting the buttons show only lessens the appeal of a high fashion shirt. But simply spicing it up with a pair of Button Covers will do the trick. Button covers don’t have to be boring. In fact, we offer a variety of fun and fashionable button covers. For example, these Cross Bone Cufflinks are anything but boring. They can add a little excitement to any button-down shirt. And we have other fun designs as well. If you have a preconceived notion about button covers, then maybe it’s time to expand your horizons a little bit. Why not purchase a pair and see how they look on your wrists? You might just discover that button covers are easy to put on, show off and take off — and you might just like them more than your cufflinks.
