      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!

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.

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.

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!

  Salut

  Mai este foarte puțin până când încep vacanțele de vară și profit de un ultim weekend în oraș ca să fac din salopetă un subiect mai ușor de digerat (prin fotografiile ce urmează).

  Când mă gândesc unde am văzut cel mai des purtată salopeta, o vizualizez ca un obiect vestimentar destinat câmpului muncii, șantiere, minierit, etc, însă astăzi salopeta este un fashion statement si puțini dintre noi sunt curajosi să o poarte.

 

_DSC0366

  În anii 90, TUPAC și Will Smith erau trend setteri purtând salopete ca item de streetwear, ulterior designeri precum Balmain și Louis Vuitton au fost inspirați să introducă în colecțiile lor, să promoveze și să relanseze salopeta ca fashion trend în colecția de primăvară – vară 2014. În 2015 inițiativa a fost preluată și de branduri de mass market și medium high iar cea mai populară salopetă este cea din jeans și cel mai des văzuta în continuare în outfituri urbane de stradă.

  Pentru mine salopeta este un item pentru timpul liber, pentru ieșit la un grătar sau la un drink cu gașca. Am ales o croială mai lejeră de vară cu turul lasat din denim prespălat și cu câteva rupturi și cu pantalon scurt.

  Este o alegere bună în momentele spontane în care vreți să puneți ceva rapid pe voi și să ieșiți din casă si totuși să aveți un look cool. O asortați cu un tricou sau un maiou, lăsați bretelele jos sau ridicați una pe umăr, alegeți o cămașa la intamplare și o pereche de loafers și sunteți gata de plecare.

  Ca accesoriu recomand un rucsac. Se potrivește perfect cu ținuta cool creată în mai puțin de 5 minute și vă este foarte util.

   Hey,

  It’s not much time left until summer holidays are here and I’ll take advantage of a last weekend in the city to make from dungaree an easier subject by showing you how to wear it.

  When I think about where I saw the allover often, I visualize it as an work-wear item. Today the allover is a fashion statement and few of us are brave enough to wear it.

  Back in the 90’s, TUPAC and Will Smith were the trendsetters wearing dungarees as a streetwear item and later on, designers like Balmain & Louis Vuitton were inspired to introduce it in their Spring – Summer 2014 collections, to promote it and relaunch it as a fashion trend. After them mass market & medium high brands took the initiative in 2015 & the most popular dungaree is the denim one and the most often seen in urban streetwear outfits.

_DSC0367

  For me the allover is an item for free time, for a barbeque or to hangout with friends. I chosed a washed denim summerish baggy fit with low crotch and short pants.

  The dungaree is a good pick when you are spontaneous and you just wanna put something on and go but still having a cool outfit. Pair it with a t-shirt or tank top, leave the braces down or put one on a shoulder, pick a random shirt, some loafers and you are good to go.

  When it’s about accessories i recommend a backpack to complete the look. It fits great with the outfit you made in less than 5 minutes and it is very useful.

Feel good, Look GREAT!
