Words cannot describe McQueen’s new Fall 2012 Collection. Just watch…
Straight from the mouth of GQ magazine contributor Matthew Sebra: “Sarah Burton’s Fall 2012 collection for the house of McQueen celebrated one of the brand’s hallmarks, razor sharp tailoring, and to let guys experience the roped shouldered goods beyond a traditional lookbook the brand put together the above clip. It’s traditional Savile Row menswear meets signature McQueen plays on proportion and pattern and loaded with natty rigs a stylish (and loaded) man could use.”
Here are some of Cufflinksman’s Favorite Looks, coupled with our (much more affordable, but still as stylish) accessories:

Make it a red carpet experience. Tis the season to look positively fly this New Years Eve. Here are some of the hottest trends, by the best designers around town, some of which happen to be on sale. (Yeah for post-christmas sales!). Let’s start with your basic white collared shirt: it’s basic, well made, and yes you can wear it again after the 31st until it fades to yellow. Then of course, gentlemen, it’s time to get another. A must-have closet staple (assuming you didn’t get any under the Christmas tree).
Now to cover the white shirt you have many options. The most reliable and unassuming is the black Two Button sports Jacket with a blinging pair of designer cufflinks. You can’t be wearing Alexander McQueen without designer cufflinks, right?

SLACKS! What will you wear on your bottom? Most men today can wear the slim fit pants that are all the rage. It is not, I repeat, not okay to be wearing relaxed fit or loose fitting pants on NYE or any other day for that matter. Tighten it up.
