      Hello everybody!

      Having so many types of different coats available for men in the stores it is really easy to get a little lost. Looking trough the shapes and colours I found myself grabbing a military green parka, a jacket popular mostly during fall season. Not sure how to style up a parka jacket or maybe you haven’t tried wearing one, well that’s what this article is all about, a short guide in my opinion about the parka.

#emilioghaman

      If there is a heavy parka in your wardrobe you might have the temptation to throw it on you when the bad weather hits and not really think about how you can style it, but getting a parka that matches your look is ideal for you.

#emilioghaman

      Might be that a parka jacket doesn’t look like the most versatile of pieces in your wardrobe but there are different ways you can dress it up or down to style it your way, to ad d on it your personal touch. There are so many styles available right now from which you can choose, long or cropped, long fishtail or even slim ones and many different colours.

 

#emilioghaman

The traditional one is the long parka in military green, usually with heavy filling to keep you warm. This should be easy for you to match it in a casual outfit that you just throw on. You could benefit of the layered look or just take it over a plain t-shirt like I did in matching colour. I chose a lightweight parka to enjoy one of the last warm and sunny days before the winter comes.

#emilioghaman

When we speak about trousers options to style up with a parka there we don’t have many limitations. A parka will come perfect for outfits like smart-casual, formal, business, relaxed and even urban/streetwear outfits I went for a cropped navy trouser. To make the look even more casual for sure sneakers were my pick for shoes.

#emilioghaman

If you prefer a slightly smarter look to wear it daily or a casual Friday at work, choose a long parka jacket. Layer underneath it classical smart casual pieces: white shirt, knitted cardigan and slim fit jeans. The shirt and jean combination is a timeless outfit you don’t have to worry about. The muted green helps to brighten the white of the shirt and create a clean contrast with it.

#emilioghaman

Short guide for your parka

  • Add some colour to your outfit when you’re wearing a navy or military green parka. A multi-tonal outfit will look complex yet put together.
  • Choose the colour of your parka depending on what kind of clothes you wear. If you wear it just in cold season might be a good idea to choose a darker colour. Still, if you like lighter colours, consider a lighter toned parka.
  • Green parkas can give off a warm tone, and are the classic version of this type of jacket. You can try matching it with cool tones like blue or grey or just keep some warm colours like I did with a sunny yellow t-shirt.
  • The parka is an investment being a timeless piece which can be worn years after years without giving an out of date feeling.

Good morning!

 

Leather vest is a timeless piece that should exist in your wardrobe no matter the season, your age or personal style.

 #emilioghaman

How to pick your leather vest?

Well, this is easy, count that the leather vest you choose should fit your body properly, the same way a blazer or a leather jacket does.

During the 20th Century black leather jackets became a staple item of clothing for the rebel biker. The leather vest derivates from the jacket, keeping the fit but loosing the sleeves.

 

Choose a versatile leather vest, a vest that can be worn alone over a short or even under a blazer or a jacket.

 #emilioghaman

How to mix and match the leather vest?

My personal choice for the first days of fall is a plai t-shirt with contrast short denims. Usually the leather vest requires some simple pieces to wear with them. Think plain t-shirts and jeans to get the greaser look and finish it with some plain trainers.

 #emilioghaman

The trick to wearing a leather vest is making sure that you don’t bulk it out underneath. Keep the vest fit comfortably, almost like a suit jacket, showing your body shape. Shirts and t-shirts are the best friends of your leather vest and can be used in styling as a base.

#emilioghaman

 When you style up a leather vest with studs or other applications keep in mind not to match with it more than 2 colours. Usually you’ll find in stores black leather vests, especially biker style like the one I’m wearing so I recommend you to play around the black.

#emilioghaman

My choice for jeans, to pair up with this biker vest is a short ripped white jeans. As other options I would recommend black plain or destroyed long jeans in case you would like to have a black on black outfit. Should you like a contrast in your styling? Pair then to this vest a pair of formal trousers and a plain slim ft shirt.

When it comes about footwear, for sure I went for comfy trainers in matching colours. I would wear as well for this outfit a pair of high-tops in black or white.

 #emilioghaman

 

 

Where to wear the leather vest? I would wear it in a day casual outfit with rock influences or a relaxed evening outfit where a dress code allows an urban outfit, when the vest is matched with denims. If you need your outfit to be more elegant try a lightweight leather vest underneath a blazer with formal trousers and leather shoes or even boots!

Keep on looking great!

Salutari si bine v-am regasit!
Renuntam la hainele groase imbiati de primavara ce isi intra in drepturi si ne dorim sa ne bucuram de soare, sa purtam ceva mai usor si mai colorat. Desigur, ne gandim la o reimprospatare a dressing-ului dar avem nevoie de asta? Am putea sa mai purtam din articolele achizitionate primavara trecuta? Raspunsul la aceste intrebari a venit imediat: trendul cel mai bun consta in outfitul care ma face sa ma simt bine si sa arat bine.
#emilioghaman
Pentru ca sfarsitul de saptamana se apropie cu pasi repezi am ales un outfit lejer. Verdele in aceasta primavara este un trend si este prezent in reviste de moda si lifestyle, magazine si in colectii ale diferitilor designeri. Verdele este o culoare neutra din natura care este usor de purtat si de asortat cu aproape orice alta culoare. Eu am ales o pereche de pantaloni verzui cu turul lasat pentru un outfit relaxat de weekend, o jacheta uzata de jeans si o pereche de pantofi sport.
#emilioghaman
Jacheta de jeans este o alegere naturala alaturi de pantalonii chino pentru un outfit de primavara si pentru ca vremea este inca schimbatoare am adaugat pe dedesubt nu doar un tricou ci si un cardigan pentru a ma feri de frig. Va recomand sa alegeti jacheta cea mai uzata din garderopa voastra sau o jacheta bomber in orice culoare. As evita negru pentru ca negru a fost culoarea cea mai prezenta in zilele de iarna. Daca va simtit bine in negru mergeti pe aceasta varianta.
#emilioghaman
Cand vorbim despre incaltaminte as merge pe pantofi sport. Dupa o iarna lunga in care cizmele si ghetele au fost o necesitate este timpul sa aducem bucurie si confort picioarelor noastre. De aceea o pereche de pantofi sport confortabili sunt cea mai buna alegere pentru o plimbare lunga intr-o zi insorita.
Feel GOOD Look Great!

Hello friends! Hello Spring!

When spring comes we all want to loose all the heavy clothes right away. we want to enjoy the sun, put some colors on and wear lightweight garments. We might get the thought that our wardrobe needs a refresh, but is it so? Could we still wear the last spring season? I answered to this question easily understanding that the best trend i can wear is the one that makes me fell GOOD and Look Great.

#emilioghaman

‘Cause the weekend is just around the corner i brought this outfit out of my wardrobe. This green it really is a trend for spring and you will find it in so many collections and proposals of different designers, brands or fashion magazines. Green is an earthy neutral color and all shades derived from it are so easy to be paired with any other color of your choice. My pick for this color is the low crotch chinos, these trousers give a weekend relaxed feeling to the outfit, reason why i paired them with a denim vintage jacket and sneakers.

#emilioghamanIt became a natural choice to pair the chinos with a used denim jacket and because the wheather is still changing i layered blue zip knit over a t-shirt to make this outfit a cosy one. I recommend wearing the most used blue jeans jacket in your wardrobe if you go for a denim jacket or pick any lightweight bomber you prefer. It can be nearly any color. I wouldn’t go for a black jacket considering that black was present nearly every day in the winter, but even so if black makes you feel good go for it.

#emilioghaman
When we speak about the footwear i prefere sneakers.Again, after a long winter when boots were a necesity it is the time now to bring joy and comfort to our feet. That’s why a pair of confortable sneakers will be the best choice for a long walk on a sunny spring day.

Feel GOOD Look Great!

Howdy!

Autumn came and with it the color palette well rooted in multi-faceted, androgynous colors that can be worn to portray effortless sophistication across men’s and women’s fashion. Like we played with the summer trends I invite you to read about 5 Fall MUSThaves.


gray for grey 2

      We start today with Gray for Grey, because you will be cool with anything on as long as it is gray. Timeless and unobtrusive yet at the same time and powerful enough to make an impactful statement on its own, any gray shade is a naturally inspired color that reminds us of things that are real not invented.

As you might have seen, all the catwalks were dominated by different gray shades this fall and no wonder why, neutral colors are always chic and can go as daywear, workwear or evening wear as well.

My choice for this gray on gray theme includes besides gray a pair of high tops. As you well know the trend to combine high tops to nearly everything is bigger and bigger so if you haven’t tried this yet maybe you should consider it for this fall.

I do go for gray as a day color and many times I pick it as an evening color as well. It can be casual or business, sporty or elegant, depending on the way you wear it.

You can make your gray outfit very easy. If it is a daywear choose a gray pair of trousers, either if it is a jogg-pant or a denim one, grab a gray t-shirt printed or just with a nice wash and a jacket or sweater over it in similar color. Make it GRAY!

When it’s about an eveningwear I would start in the same way. Pick you grey trousers, try jeans if they are not destroyed and take a plain shirt over, a denim shirt would go as well, and fine blazer, you might have one from a suit.

Regarding shoes I would go for sneakers or slip-ons for day wear and boots or brogues for the evening outfit. When it’s about the cold evenings choose a nice scarf around your neck to keep you warm.

Bună dimineața!
 
 Jacheta Bomber a fost concepută special pentru piloți, ea mai era denumită și jacheta Flight sau Bombardier, iar mai tarziu a devenit un fashion item. Este o jachetă care la origini era făcută din piele, cu bandă elastică la manșete și talie și o croiala mai strâmtă, cu închidere prevăzută cu fermoar și guler de fleece.

Cele mai cunoscute jachete bomber americane sunt A-2 și G-1. Deși Generalul “Hap” Arnold a anulat originala jachetă A-2 dupa 12 ani în care a deservit armatei americane pentru că își dorea “ceva mai bun”, jacheta A-2 rămâne simbolul jachetei Bomber americane. Jacheta G-1, concepută de U.S. Navy ca o alternativa a jachetei A-2a rezistat până în 1978, an în care Congresul U.S. a anulat-o datorită popularității ridicate ce a facut-o simbol al onoarei, aventurii și stilului. Filme Hollywoodiene precum TOP GUN au crescut vânzarile neașteptat făcând jacheta bomber un fashion item foarte popular. (sursa: Wikipedia)

Confortabila și cool, jacheta bomber a devenit o piesă casual, de generații, și încă își menține rolul de jachetă fashion. De la high-end la high-street, jacheta bomber este reinventată sezon dupa sezon, folosind materiale diferite și mici modificari de formă.

Dacă vă gândiți să adăugați o astfel de jachetă în garderopa personală acum este un moment bun. În vara aceasta jacheta bomber ar trebui să fie provocarea pe care să o acceptați. Ținând cont de cele de mai sus, este posibil să vă gândiți ca jacheta bomber este o piesa mult prea călduroasă pentru vară, de aceea va propun o jacheta bomber college, cum este cea pe care o port în pictorialul de azi, dintr-un material subțire.

Poate veți spune că o astfel de jachetă este dedicată băieților tineri și că, poate nu se potrivește stilului vostru, însă nu sunt de acord. Puteți asorta jacketa la o pereche de jeans sau chiar și pantaloni scurți, cu un tricou și pantofi sport pentru un look urban de vară, și la fel de bine la o cămașa albă și pantaloni chino pentru un look smart casual.

Aveți grijă să mențineți un camp de culori constant în jurul jachetei. Dacă nu sunteți siguri cu privire la culorile ce merg a fi asortate cu jacheta voastră, vă sugerez să mergeți pe culori deschise, culori neutre, în acest fel veți obține un look minimalistic în care jacheta bomber este vedeta.

Good Morning!
 
The bomber jacket was originally made for pilots, it was also called the flight jacket or bombardier jacket, then it became a fashion item. It is a short sturdy jacket traditionally made of leather and having a fitted or elastic waist, a zippered front, and often a fleece or pile collar.
 


     The two most historical and well-known American flight jackets are the A-2 jacket and the G-1. Although General “Hap” Arnold cancelled the original A-2 after twelve years because he wanted “something better”, the A-2 remains the most recognizable and sought-after American flight jacket. The G-1, designed by the U.S. Navy to parallel the Air Corps’ A-2, lasted until 1978, when U.S. Congress cancelled it due to its tremendous popular appeal, which was overwhelming the Navy’s supply system. Their popularity evolved into symbols of honor, adventure, and style. Hollywood films like Top Gun boosted sales of the G-1 tremendously, making bomber jackets collector and fashion items.

Comfortable and cool, the bomber jacket became a casual wear item for generations and it still owns the role of a fashion jacket to this very day. From high-end to high street, the bomber jacket reinvented season upon season, using different qualities an soft changes in shape.

If you consider adding a bomber jacket into your wardrobe, now is the right time. This summer season the bomber jacket should be the challenge you must take. Counting the above mentioned, you might think that a bomber jacket is to heavy for the summer, that’s why my proposal for you is a college bomber from a lightweight fabric.

emilioghaman.com

You may say that this jacket is only for young boys and not matching your style, i disagree. You can pair it with jeans or even shorts and t-shirts and a pair of sneakers to build an urban look for summer evenings and also with a white shirt and chinos for a smart casual look.

Take care to build the right color field around it. If you are not sure about what colors to pick, i suggest to go for neutral lighter colors so this way you will have a minimal look where the Bomber Jacket is the star.

Feel Good and Look GREAT!
