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!

Howdy!

 

Get set for a safari adventure this season as fashion leads us deep into the (concrete) jungle. The key is to look out for wildlife-inspired pieces with a classic metropolitan influence. Dusty, sandy shades are what immediately spring to mind when building the palette for this trend – khaki, beige, cream and white not only on trend this season but also perfect for combating the rising temperatures. Shades that complement these neutral base tones are warmer shades like orange/yellow and blood red, along with earthy brown, desert green and even a bit of camo print.

The safari jacket is one of the stars of this summer. Historically, safari (or bush) jackets represented the central item of the British military’s tropical uniform, worn by soldiers in the African bush. Traditionally featuring four or more expandable pockets, an attached waist belt and epaulettes, they were designed to be lightweight for easy mobility but warm enough for the African nights.

Combining utilitarian convenience with a minimal design, the safari jacket perfectly balances fashion and function. Typically constructed from breathable cotton drill or poplin, they can be worn during spring/summer days without becoming stifling, providing an extra layer of insulation when the temperature drops in the evening.

If you prefer a modern safari shirt to build up this look, keep it clean, classic and simple. Hot sweaty summers demand comfort from every piece you wear and as such, you should opt for lightweight cotton or linen blends. White and cream are timeless options that will fit perfectly into a wide variety of looks and will continue to get you good wear for many years to come.

As for pants, beige/khaki legwear is essential to the urban safari aesthetic. Go for above the knee shorts, slim-fit trousers or chinos to set the foundation of your outfit. You could  even look to create your own individual, slightly more relaxed take on the short suit trend by pairing matching shorts with the safari jacket and thus creating a safari suit.

When it comes to a safari wardrobe, one footwear silhouette immediately springs to mind: the desert boots. Besides being practical and comfortable, worn-in materials like burnished leather or scuffed suede in earthy colors(dark brown, beige or mahogany) will add character to your outfit, plus there’s nothing more masculine than looking like you’ve just left the Grand Canyon.

However, we all know that boots can quickly become uncomfortable in the heat. When temperatures rise, consider using a pair of suede Derbies or brogues in sandy or earthy tones. I picked a pair of high tops (sneakers)

 emilioghaman dot com safari 5

When choosing your accessories, try flashes of color for a more playful approach. Bold toned socks for example. Warms reds, greens and yellows add vibrancy to an incredibly neutral look – the safari trend is timeless and classic but head-to-toe monotone might become too boring. You can include other summer accessories like straw hats and sunglasses and if you wear scarves, try one with perforations.Just remember to pick the design or shape that suits you best.

Hey,
Vacanțele de vară ne expun iar bărbații ce arată perfect prezentabil in viața de zi cu zi brusc întâmpină dificultăți în găsirea unui outfit potrivit pentru concediu.
Nu vă îmbrăcați în vacanță așa cum o faceți zi de zi la job. Relaxarea și distracția sunt pe primul plan în concediu și asta este ceea ce outfiturile tale ar trebui să inspire. În opinia mea sunt câteva itemuri cheie pentru un city break de vară: loafers fără șosete sau șosete “no show”, o pereche de chinos sau pantaloni scurți, cămașă albă (și câteva de schimb) și pentru seară un sacou dintr-un material ușor, iar în cazul în care vântul își face apariția un pulover V-neck subțire din lână ar fi o alegere bună.
_DSC0449
Dacă următoarea ta destinație este plaja nu uita pantalonii de baie, cămașa cu imprimeu floral despre care deja am vorbit, încearcă tricouri largi cu printuri tropicale sau culori tari și papucii de plajă.
Eu prefer look-ul de surfer și cred că este adecvat zilelor petrecute pe plajă. Weekendul acesta merg la mare și deja mă gândesc numai la vacanța de vară dar de această datăam ales să port pe drum noua mea cămașă preferată (cea cu palmieri albaștrii) pe care am asortat-o cujeanși rulați in partea de jos, loafers șio pălărie în culorile outfitului.

Dacă ești aproape de concediu, ultimul lucru dificil de făcut este bagajul, mai jos găsești 5 ponturi care îți vor ușura munca: 1. Informează-te despre dimensiunile și greutatea admisă a bagajelor.
2. Organizează-ți o lista împărțită pe categorii: îmbrăcăminte, cosmetice, gadgeturi și accesorii, cărți si ghiduri, medicamente și alte lucruri de care o să ai nevoie. Alege o geantă care este ușoară dar în același timp rezistentă astfel încât să îți poți organiza cât mai bine lucrurile în interior.
_DSC0476
3. Începe să împachetezi și acum este momentul încare devi nemilos. Marea majoritate a oamenilor călătoresc cu prea multe haine, pantofi și gadgeturi pe care nu le vor folosi ajungând astfel să care după ei o greutate inutilă, așa că fă o selecție drastică și renunță la articolele care nu sunt esențiale. În caz de urgentă poți cumpăra diverse lucruri când ajungi la destinație.
4. Renunța la gândirea “poate o să am nevoie și de …”. Alege ținute pentru fiecare zi în parte ca să elimini din timp întrebarea “cu ce mă brac azi”.
5. Pune totul în bagaj și nu uita că ești la un pas distanța de distracție.
 
Feel good, Look GREAT!

Hi,
Summer holidays are pretty exposing and men who look perfectly presentable in their daily lives suddenly have issues in finding the right outfits for vacation. Don’t dress like you do for work on your holidays! You are supposed to be relaxed and enjoying your free time and that’s what your outfit should say.
In my opinion these are the required items for a summer city break: soft loafers with no socks or “no show” socks; a decent pair of chinos or tailored shorts; a polo shirt; few crispy white shirts; and, in the evening, a lightweight blazer and if it gets windy a thin wool V-neck sweater would fit too. Simple, comfortable and easy!
_DSC0475
If you want to hit the beach, don’t forget your swim shorts or the flower shirt we already spoke about, try loose t-shirts with tropical prints or strong colors and flip-flops. I like the surfer look and I think it’s really appropriate for sunny days on the beach.
This weekend I am off to the seaside and I already have the summer holiday on my mind, but for now, this is what i chose for the road trip: my new favorite shirt this summer (this blue palm tree shirt) which i paired with rolled jeans, loafers and a matching hat.
_DSC0486
If your summer break is about to start and the last stressful thing that’s left to do is packing your bags, here are 5 tips to make this operation faster and easier:
1. Know your baggage allowance before you even start planning!
2. Make a list, separate this into clothing, toiletries, gadgets and accessories, books and guides, medicines and any other item you are going to need. Pick baggage that is light and sturdy for the job and ensure you maximize the weight allowance as much as the size of the bag.
3. Assemble all the items you are going to need on your list and get ruthless. Most people travel away with far too many clothes, shoes and gadgets and gizmos that they end up not using or needing. So you end up carting weight around which is not only heavy but also unnecessary. Now get ruthless and remove everything that is not essential. You can buy every day items at your destination.
_DSC0479
4. Don’t even bother including those items ‘just in case’. You are unlikely to use them. Make outfits for each day so you don’t have to think about that when you reach your destination.
5. Once ready, it’s time to pack and keep in mind: you are one bag away from fun!
 
Feel good, Look GREAT!

Bună dimineața

de ce jeansi rupți?
de ce nu?

IMG_0750

Mereu ne spunem că nu ne dorim să ne lăsam acaparați de trenduri sau să devenim sclavi ai modei însă din când în când este binevenit un update în dressingul nostru.

Mă gândesc că nu sunt singurul care adoră jeansii și nu doar pentru că sunt practici, dar și pentru că sunt o piesă vestimentară versatilă ce revine iar și iar in trend.

IMG_0672

Recent am inventariat stocul de jeans și am descoperit că am undeva la 26 de perechi și cu toate astea prea des nu găsesc nimic de îmbracat. Cu toți avem piese în colecția personală pentru care dezvoltam o afinitate de moment și le purtam în “heavy rotation” și alte piese de care uităm și le redescoperim după ce mult timp au stau undeva ascunse, într-un colț al dressingului.

IMG_0728

Schimbările nu au ezitat să apăra în lumea denimului, de la sezon la sezon găsim forme și spălări noi. Predominant în ultimii ani au fost jeansii slim, skinny iar mai nou super skinny, și dacă acesta este trendul nu înseamnă că un jeans clasic nu mai are consumatorul său. Indiferent de trend sau sezon, o pereche de jeans nu se demodează si nici nu îmbătrânește niciodată, rămâne acea piesă vestimentara pe care oricare dintre noi o are!

Despe jeansii rupți … pariez că fiecare dintre voi și-a tăiat sau rupt cel puțin o pereche de jeans. Cel puțin eu am făcut asta! I-am tăiat ca să ii fac scurți, i-am rupt ca să îi fac cool din nou, am aruncat chiar și vopsea pe ei pentru a obține un look urban și original.

aIMG_0611

Exista câteva “reguli” de care putem ține cont atunci când ne cumparam (sau ne stilizăm) o pereche de ripped jeans:

1. jeansii rupți arată cel mai bine atunci când sunt antichizați, atunci când au un aspect super uzat, tocit ba chiar decolorat.
2. ai grijă ca jeansii tăi să nu fie mai strâmți decât ai prietenei tale.
3. poartă-i slim sau skinny, rupți și reparați alături de un tricou simplu și o pereche de loafers și vei avea un look de vara cool.
4. alege-i tapered sau loose fit împreuna cu o cămașă casual și sneakers pentru un look super relaxat de weekend.
5. pentru zile mai racoroase poartă un blazer și brogues pentru o ținuta smart casual.
6. nu te chinui prea tare, aproape orice vei pune alături de jeansii tai rupți va arăta bine.

IMG_0659-2

În vara lui 2015 rămânem pe jeansii rupți în genunghi, tăiați și skinny în nuanțe de albastru, de la albastru intens la albastru deschis, spălați și antichizați sau doar rupți.

Încălțămintea sport este recomandată pentru un look lejer însă la fel de bine merge și un pantof brogue clasic. Pentru a accentua încălțămintea și pentru un summer feeling vă propun să vă suflecați jeanșii.

Feel good, Look GREAT!

Good Morning!

Why ripped jeans?

Why not?!

IMG_0625

We often tell ourselves that we shouldn’t let the fashion industry trends grab a hold on us and turn us into obedient slaves, but every now and then, an update of our dressing is more than welcomed.

I do find myself not being the only one in love with jeans, not only because they are practical,  but also for their versatility and endurance throughout the reinvention of fashion oldies and new arrivals altogether. 

IMG_0803

After a thorough inventory of my jeans collection, I found I own 26 pairs and got to wonder how the heck do I still have “I got nothing to wear” moments?!? We all have items in our personal collection that we tend to grow a crush for and wear in heavy rotation, or others that we just simply forget about and one day rediscover hidden in a corner of our closet.

Changes haven’t hesitated to pop up in the friendly jeans world, creating new shapes and washings from one season to another. In the last years, slim jeans, skinny jeans and recently the super skinny ones have been predominant in outfit choices,  but that doesn’t mean that the classic jeans can’t find its consumer, which proves that no matter the season,  the trend or fashion influence,  jeans are timeless, ageless, that one piece of clothing that everybody (and I mean EVERYBODY) owns.

aIMG_0790

Now about ripped jeans…I bet each and every one of you has, at least once, cut or ripped an old pair of jeans.  Well at least I have! I cut them to make shorts, I ripped them to look cool, I even threw paint on them for an original urban design.

aIMG_0746

There are a few, let’s say, “rules” or tips when it comes to buying and styling your own pair of ripped jeans:

1. Ripped jeans actually look the best when they have a vintage aspect to them, when they are worn out and even discolored.

2. Don’t let your jeans fit tighter than your girlfriend’s!

3. Wear slim/skinny, destroyed and repaired jeans along with a simple T-shirt and a pair of loafers for a cool summer look.

4. Choose tapered or loose fit together with a casual shirt and a pair of sneakers for a super relaxed weekend outfit.

5. On chilly days or evenings go for a blazer and brogues for that smart casual look.

6. Don’t overdo it! Almost anything you pair with your ripped jeans will look good.

aIMG_0805

So for this summer we’ll stick to knee ripped jeans, cut out skinny in all shades of blue from light to dark, washed, destroyed and vintage vibes.

For top pretty much anything goes and as for footwear, you can choose from sports shoes to a classic pair of brogues. Also if you want to accentuate your shoes and for that extra summer feeling, I encourage you to roll up your jeans.

Feel good, Look GREAT!
