In response to numerous requests for a male version of our fashion find feature, we are launching #ManCrushMonday. Take a look at our super luxe picks for men this season, as well as our our top five fashion finds for fall 2013.
1. The Slim-Fit Blazer: Love this sweetheart red tweed with its notched lapel and two-button fastening! ASOS’s fit-to-size wool blend jacket offers a sophisticated pop of color against the basic tones of men’s dress wear. Snatch up this fashion find for $133.49 or go for the sizable splurge with Gucci’s crimson duke jacket. For $2,200, Bergdorf Goodman offers this sport coat boasting peacock-print lining and plush velvet detail.
2. The Leather Lace-Ups: Take a walk on the wild-er side in these wing-tipped tall boots. Step with ease between casual and cocktail, as this style is always appropriate. Fusing the polished oxford look with a rising lace-up ankle, Gucci’s split-toe boots retail for $950 at MrPorter.com. Steve Madden’s similar Evander 2 boots featuring a detailed brogue pattern are a fashion forward steal at $115 from Zappo’s.
3. The Plaid Scarf: Fold, twist, tuck or loop. Define your style with the tie of an ascot knot or the simple drape of a woven scarf under your banker’s overcoat. Burberry offers a new take on an old standby with an exaggerated plaid scarf in sapphire and grey. This cashmere scarf retails at $490. Drake’s vintage cashmere check in navy, green and gold is a more accessible option for £195.00.
4. The Two-Toned Belt: Take it up a notch with a multi-tonal belt. Even the fashion-challenged can strike a pose in these savvy, jewel-toned accessories. Paul Smith’s royal purple and blue, color-blocked belt is one of our favorites, retailing at $225. Visit Keggy for a less pricey version and obtain a virtual, style steal with this navy belt with deep plum trim for only $156.
5. The Calling Card: Business cards are the latest must-have accessory for men this fall. Leave your personal mark behind in the business world with a fashionable calling card. Since 1878, Dempsey & Carroll has been the go-to company for the finest in engraved social stationary. For a collection of 500, these high-end business cards can reach upwards of $900. Almanac Industries offers a more affordable option while retaining the old world style of printing. Almanac runs a hand-fed press that’s circa 1930, creating a de-bossed type with a tactile feel. The same quantity of cotton paper letter press cards are available for $450.
