Hello friends,

 

I will continue today with another chapter from this season must haves. Let’s have a look at the overcoat.

 

emilioghaman.com

An overcoat is a type of long coat intended to be worn as the outermost garment, which usually extends below the knee. Overcoats are most commonly used in winter when warmth is more important. In many countries, coats and gowns reaching below the knee have been worn for centuries, often for formal uses, establishing either social status or as part of a professional or military uniform. In the 17th century, the overcoat became widely stylized and available to the different classes.

Overcoats in various forms have been used by militaries since at least the late 18th century, and were especially associated with winter campaigns, such as Napoleon’s Russian campaign. Overcoats continued to be used as battle dress until the mid-1940s and 1950s, when they were deemed impractical. However, in colder countries, such as the former USSR, they continue to be issued and used. When more efficient clothing and synthetic fibres became readily available, the overcoat began to be phased out even there. [source: Wikipedia]

      Designers are re-imagining the overcoat constantly. They add sometimes elbow patches, applique details, contrast velvet collars, raglan shoulders or oversized pockets. We are used with two main styles: the double-breasted and the single-breasted coats.

      The most easy to wear is the single-breasted version of the overcoat, it is more minimal and clean and can be paired with everything from your daily suits to a jeans and Oxford shirt and even sneakers for weekend.

If you desire a military look, then you should go for a double-breasted overcoat that is belted or features a half-belt detail. Take these small touches in consideration in choosing your overcoat, they are essential.

When you cannot decide what should be the length of your overcoat, think that you can choose between a traditional full-length style or something more contemporary, a medium length that finishes above the knee.

   My choice for this workday is to have the overcoat combined with a chino pant, shirt and pullover. This is a combo that anyone can wear, it is so easy, I’m sure many of you tried it already. When we speak about the footwear, my pick defines a casual workwear look that you can wear weekdays. If you feel to make this look more urban, go for hi top sneakers in matching color.

Salut!

       Voi continua astăzi cu un nou capitol din must have-urile acestui sezon.

       Paltonul este un model de haină lungă conceput pentru a fi purtat ca ultimul articol vestimentar îmbrăcat, care de obicei este lungă până după genunchi. Paltoanele sunt folosite în general iarna când avem nevoie de haine groase pentru a ne menține temperatura corpului. În multe țări paltonul până peste genunchi a fost purtat de secole, adesea în scopuri formale, definind un statut social, o profesie sau uniforma militară. În secolul al 17-lea, paltonul este restilizat la scară largă și devine accesibil pentru diferite clase sociale. 

 

      Paltoane de diferite forme au fost folosite ca uniformă militară în secolul al 18-lea și au fost  asociate cu campanile de iarnă, precum campania Rusa a lui Napoleon. Paltoanele au rămas în continuare ca uniformă de luptă până în anii 1940-1950, moment în care nu au mai fost considerate practice. Chiar și așa în țările cu un climat mai rece (ca de exemplu URSS) au fost folosite în continuare. Când alte articole de îmbracaminte mai eficiente și alte fibre sintetice au devenit disponibile, paltonul a fost scos din uz în aceste țări. [sursa: Wikipedia]

emilioghaman.com

 

       Designerii re-inventează paltonul constant. Uneori adăuga patch-uri pe coate, diferite alte detalii, gulere de catifea în contrast, umeri raglan sau buzunare supradimensionate. Am fost obișnuiți cu două tipuri de palton, cele cu două rânduri de nasturi și cele cu un singur rând de nasturi.

 

       Cel mai ușor de purtat este paltonul cu un singur rând de nasturi, are un design minimalistic și simplu, și poate fi adăugat aproape oricarui outfit, fie că sunt costumele pe care le porți zilnic la birou sau perechea de jeans preferată, o cămașă Oxford sau sneakers pentru weekend.

emilioghaman.com

 

       Dacă îți dorești un look military alege un palton cu două rânduri de nasturi, unul care să aibe și curea în talie ar fi cel mai indicat. Dă atenție la detalii atunci când alegi un palton și ține cont de ocaziile la care vrei să îl porți.

       Dacă ești nehotărât și îți este greu să te decizi care să fie lungimea paltonului tău, gândește-te că poți alege între lungimea unui palton tradițional lung  până aproape de glezne sau o croiala contemporană până deasupra genunchilor.

emilioghaman.com

       Alegerea mea pentru această zi de lucru a fost un palton deasupra contemporan combinat cu o pereche de chinos, o cămașă și un pulover. Este un outfit lejer pe care îl poți face fără prea multa bătaie de cap, un outfit pe care îl poate purta oricine. Sunt convins că mulți dintre voi ați facut deja asta. Când vorbim despre incălțăminte, eu am ales o pereche de pantofi casual din pile ștanțată cu inspirație de piton. Dacă vreți să obtineți un look mai urban, alegeți o pereche de pantofi sport înalți de o culoare similara cu cele ale outfitului vostru. 

       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.

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.

 emilioghaman dot com safari 6

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)

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.

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.
 
 
emilioghaman.com
 

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. (source: Wikipedia)

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!
