Introducing the Man-ual! Every man's guide to all that is style!

Man-ual 1: SS-2014 Season has Gone Pastel-listic!

Roll up your sleeves gentlemen, suits are becoming a playful attire as designers are taking cuts, fabrics, & colors into a new dimension.

We keep assuming that fashion is a wheel, and that trends through out history keep coming back, but I'm happy to tell you that things have changed and we are about to see a bolder approach to men fashion regarding suits.

Taking a look at what Ermenegildo Zegna, Tom Ford, Ozwald Boateng, and many other designers tackled for the coming season, here is what we observed:

1.Sleeves are no more a rack to place four to five buttons in a row, Zegna introduced sleeves with no buttons at all or even long sleeve extensions that wrinkle up around your wrists adding a slight contrast to a simple blazer.

2.Double-breasted blazers that take your simple suit back to the posh 1980's,giving your a structured figure and a classy feel. what is making DP blazer bolder these days is the signature buttons thats add a little twist of modern.

3.Pastel & Light shades and tints of Blue, grey, ash, & beige is all over the runway for SS-2014. Aim for calm colors with a derivative combination for the shirt and tie.

4. White it out! white is no longer the suit color for weddings and occasions only, unleash freshness and chicness with a white suit this summer and give your suit a relaxed luxury feel with a contrasting tie and shoes.

5. Cropped trouser ankles show off that little piece of skin between your trousers and your shoes with cropped trouser ankles, you can even use those crops to showcase your new set of designed socks.
