      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!

Bună dimineața Primavara, Bună dimineața prieteni!

În ciuda zilelor ploioase și a dimineților întunecate cu aer rece, este confortabil să stii că Martie este prima lună de primăvară. Zilele puloverelor voluminoase pe care le purtăm ca să ne țină cald sunt aproape uitate.

      A venit momentul să ne reorganizăm dressingul și să ne alegem ținutele de primăvară iar una dintre culorile must have ale acestui sezon este beige, o culoare ce nu se demodează indiferent de trend.

spring beige emilioghaman
      Culorile neutre sunt mereu o alegere ușoară și sigură, sunt perfecte pentru acele zile în care garderopa îți pare neprietenoasă și nu ai nici cea mai mica idee cu ce să te îmbraci pentru birou sau o întâlnire de business. Beige este culoare de primăvară pe care o poți accesa pentru a înlocui negru, negru pe care l-ai tot purtat în lunile reci de iarnă. Beige este chic, elegant și nu va ieși niciodată din trend.

      Perioada de tranziție de la iarna la primăvara ne poate creea de multe ori dificultăți în a alege ce să purtăm, cu temperaturi ce fluctuează ne este dificil să intuim vremea de la o zi la alta. În această situație prima modificare în dressing este să renunți la jachetele groase de iarnă și să alegi ceva mai practic: jachete mai subțiri, jachete scurte și jachete de ploaie, toate aceste variante sunt excelente până când temperaturile vor crește, îți oferă protecție împotriva condițiilor meteo nefavorabile și sunt suficient de groase astfel încât să nu îți fie prea cald.

spring beige emilioghaman
      Suntem norocoși să găsim aproape orice tip de jachetă în tonuri de beige și putem asorta o jacheta beige cu ușurintă la un jeans sau un chino. Pentru pictorialul de astăzi am ales un outfit smart casual urban minimalistic având ca element de baza trenciul beige.

      Probabil te intrebi ce pantaloni sunt cea mai bună alegere pentru un trenci beige. Este foarte simplu! Dacă ești fan denim atunci alege o pereche de jeans. Iar dacă vrei ca pantalonul să fie ceva mai elegant, poți alege pantalonul unui costum din dressing-ul tau sau o pereche de chinos. Eu am ales o pereche de chinos din raw denim, un pantalon chino este adesea folosit pentru o tinuta casual sau formala iar albastrul inchis este o culoare perfecta pentru birou. Pentru zile insorite iti recomand o pereche de pantaloni albi, merg perfect cu trenciul beige!

spring beige emilioghaman
      Ce punem pe sub trenciul beige? Este alegerea ta, și sigur nu ai avea bătăi de cap. Eu am optat pentru un pulover subțire peste o cămașă, imediat după ședinta foto aveam o întâlnire planificată și nu aș fi avut timp să mă schimb. Alege o cămașă în care te simți bine și poți pune chiar și un cardigan lung peste, ține cont să nu alegi o piesă vestimentară mai lungă decât trenciul. La capitolul incălțăminte sortimentul pe care îl poți accesa este bogat, poți purta pantofi sport pentru o ținuta de stradă, pantofi eleganți pentru birou sau întâlniri și ghete sau cizme pentru o zi ploioasă.

Un weekend frumos vă doresc!

Feel Good, LOOK Great

      Hello Spring! Hello friends!

 

      Despite the rainy days, cold air and gloomy dark mornings, it’s comforting to know that March is the 1st month of spring. The days when our chunky knits are meant keep us warm are nearly forgotten. It is the time now to plan our spring outfits and colors and I will start with a trend that will never be outdated: NUDE!

      Neutrals are always an easy choice and perfect for those days when your wardrobe looks unfriendly at you and you have no idea what would you like to wear that day at work or a business meeting. Beige is the tone you should wear in spring as an alternative to the black you worn in winter months. It is chick, elegant, stylish and timeless.

      The transitional period from winter to spring many times gives us difficulties I choosing what to wear, temperatures are fluctuating and it is hard to predict weather conditions from one day to the other. This case the first adjustment to your wardrobe should be to ditch the big winter overcoats and go for something more practical: lightweight in between jackets, cropped bombers and raincoats, all these are excellent top layers as the temperatures begin to rise providing protection from the elements while ensuring you don’t overheat.

We are lucky to find the nude tones on nearly every outerwear silhouette and we can mix and match easily jeans or chinos in different cuts and washes. For today’s shooting I picked a minimalist urban smart casual outfit.

      Are you are in doubt of which pants are a better match to your beige trench? It’s easy! If you are a denim lover choose some denims. If you wanna go for a more formal look you should then take the trousers from one of your suits or a pair of chinos. My pick is a slim raw denim chino. The silhouette of this trouser makes it a casual/formal pant and the navy color gives that office feeling. You can match a beige trench with white trousers as well, it is perfect for cold sunny days.

      Underneath, the layering is by your choice. For the morning meeting I have my thoughts were for a formal outfit, that’s the reason I wear a shirt and v-neck knitwear, because right after the shooting i had a meeting scheduled and there was no time to change the outfit. Go for a comfortable shirt and add a long cardigan over it, take in consideration one thing, whatever you choose, it shouldn’t be longer than the trench coat. Shoes options for this outfit are wide, try sneakers for a street style outfit, some elegant shoes for the office look and the boots for rainy days, whatever you choose it won’t be wrong.

 

Enjoy the weekend guys!

Hey!
When winter comes we are all thinking about the hot summer days, holidays at the seaside and long tropical nights with beach or pool party, but we still have to wait until summer is again here. Until then let’s find warmth with good looks for winter season.

From flowers to butterflies to tapestry, there were so many patterns across the catwalks this season –  however when we looked back, we noticed squares were everywhere, whether used in big, bold blocks of color or as patches on jeans or coats.

Geometric prints as one of the most prominent fashion trends for men can already expect a guy’s traditional autumn / winter wardrobe to get a little bit of fun. Count on the subtle splashes of color, and on the playful juxtaposition of shapes, to ensure all the elements necessary in helping revamp both the classic, and the more modern menswear silhouettes intended for the cold months.

emilioghaman.com

If your wardrobe is minimal and you would like to ad some geometric prints into your closet, choose the subtle route. Think in terms of classic how to join the art of geometric prints, wear over your favorite white shirt a geometric cardigan or knitted jacket, it is enough to make your outfit stand out.

emilioghaman.com

My pick is a fine zip knitwear in big colored squares for today’s photoshoot. To make this inspiration easy for you, I layered this knot over a white shirt and blue denims. I thought that for every guy to combine a bite shirt with blue denims is a routine already so why not change this basic outfit in an outstanding one. Wear shoes in a matching color and ad an oversized scarf, accessories will always complete your look.

Enjoy the weekend guys!

Buna dimineata,
      La sfarsitul anului 2014 Pantone a anuntat Marsala ca fiind culoarea anului 2015. Sunt sigur ca ati auzit despre Marsala dar posibil sa nu stiti care este provenienta acestei culori, asa ca vom vorbi putin pe final de an despre aceasta culoare

      Marsala este cel mai populat oras situat in regiunea Tripani, in Sicilia. Orasul este cunoscut pentru andocarea lui Garibaldi in 11 mai 1860 dar si pentru delicioasele vinuri Marsala. Acest vin, sec sau dulce, este produs in Sicilia si detine un certificat de origine din 1969. In timp ce localnicii acestui oras consuma varianta vintage a vinului Marsala, vinul produs pentru export este intotdeauna fortifiat la fel ca vinurile Port, Madeira sau Sherry. Adaosul de alcohol se facea pentru ca vinul sa reziste la transportul maritim pe o perioada indelungata, iar acum se foloseste in continuare aditia de alcohol pe pietele internationale pentru a mentine popularitatea creeata de acest vin.

      O alta culoare care a fost mereu prezenta pe podiumuri este Burgundy. Numele apartine regiunii franceze unde se produce vinul cu aceeasi denumire. Este cunoscut atat ca vin rosu cat si ca vin alb, in general facut din soiuri de Pinot Noir si Chardonay dar si alte varietati de struguri printre care si Gamay, Aligote, Pinot blanc and Sauvignon blac. Regiunea este impartita, astfel, in Côte-d’Or se cultiva cele mai pretioase si premiate soiuri de struguri pentru vinul Burgundy si Côte Chalonnaise and Mâcon.
      Burgundy a fost – istorical – culoarea purtata in Regatul Britanic Victorian, rosu sau rosu inchis fiind adesea purtat de catre gentlemen. Cel mai comun palton fiind cel cu un singur randuri de nasturi, cu o talie inalta. Aceste paltoane simbolizau masculinitatea si eleganta.
emilioghaman.com
 
      In 2015 nu silueta paltonului este vedeta ci culoarea care este atat de usor de purtat si asortat cu aproape orice. In concluzie, Burgundy & Marsala sunt ambele culori ale vinurilor folosite in industria modei in special in sezonul rece. Din moment ce Marsala este culoarea anului 2015, in acest sezon vom vorbi putin despre ea. Aleg sa o port in sezonul de iarna pentru ca este o culoare ce se incadreaza perfect cu temperaturile scazute ale sezonului si decorul naturii, frunze ruginii cazute si mai tarziua zapada.
      Cand vine vorba de posibile combinatii de culoare in care sa includem Marsala nu cred ca aveti nevoie de prea multe sfaturi. Sunt convins ca v-ati gandit sa combinati Marsala cu albastru marin si alb, este o combinatie usoara care arata bine; insa Marsala fiind o culoare versatila se poate asorta usor cu aproape orice culoare, ca de exemplu: camel, beige, alb, negru, gri, antracit, albastru, albastru marin sau albastru electric, maro, cognac, verde, inclusiv culori metalice ca auriu sau argintiu.
emilioghaman.com
      Am ales ca pentru acest pictorial sa folosesc Marsala intr-un outfit urban/casual cu inflkuente rock. Am imbracat o pereche de jeansi biker skinny si ghete “military” alaturi de o camasa alba si un pulover, articole ce le port adesea la birou. Pentru a completa outfitul am ales o jacheta din velour. Puteti purta aproape orice articol vestimentar Marsala, de exemplu o pereche de jeans Marsala cu tenesi albi inalti, un tricou gri si o jacheta de jeans albastra.
Fiti creativi si purtati Marsala toata iarna.

Good morning,
      Pantone announced last winter the color of 2015, and that is Marsala, I’m sure all of you heard about it. Might be that you don’t know where it comes from, so let me tell you a bit about it.
 
      Marsala is an Italian town located in the Province of Trapani in the westernmost part of Sicily. Marsala is the most populated town in Trapani District and the fifth in Sicily. The town is famous for the docking of Garibaldi on 11 May 1860 and for its Marsala wine. Marsala is a delicious Italian wine, dry or sweet, produced in Sicily and granted the certificate of origin in 1969. While the city’s natives sometimes drink “vintage” Marsala, the wine produced for export is universally fortified similar to Port, Madeira and Sherry. Originally, this addition of alcohol was to ensure that it would last on long ocean voyages, but now it is made that way because of its popularity in foreign markets. [source: wikipedia]

      One of the colors that almost always takes the stage during the fall season is the burgundy color. Burgundy is one of France’s main wine producing areas. It is well known for both its red and white wines, mostly made from Pinot noir and Chardonnay grapes, respectively, although other grape varieties can be found, including Gamay, Aligote, Pinot blanc, and Sauvignon blanc. The region is divided into the Côte-d’Or, where the most expensive and prized Burgundies are found, and Beaujolais, Chablis, the Côte Chalonnaise and Mâcon.      Burgundy was – historically – worn for formal events in Victorian Britain, the gentlemen were often wearing deep or dark red. The most common outerwear was the single breasted buton long coats, with a high waistline,  these jackets epitomised elegance and masculinity.
emilioghaman.com      In 2015 the hype is not only a formal favourite item, it is the colour which is so easy to mix and match with nearly whatever. In conclusion, Burgundy & Marsala are both shades of wine color used a lot in fashion industry during fall season. Since Marsala is the color of the year, this season we will speak about it. I wear it more in the fall-winter season than the spring-summer season just because it is a darker color and it fits so well with the cold weather, rusty leaves and snow.      When we speak about color combinations you should not need to much advice. I am sure you think already that Marsala with navy and white would look good, in fact the color is so easy to mix and match that you can pair it with a lot of colors, for example: camel, beige, white, black, grey, blue, navy, Olympian or electric blue, gray, anthracite, brown, cognac, green; even with metallic colors like silver and gold.

emilioghaman.com       My choice for this photo shooting was to make with Marsala a casual/urban outfit with a rock touch. I paired black biker coated jeans and military boots with a white shirt with tie and knit that i usually wear at the office. on top a velour bomber felt like the right jacket to add.
      You can wear nearly any article in this color, for example, i find easy to combine a Marsala pair of denims with white high tops and a gray t-shirt and an easy blue jeans jacket. As a final word i’d say you should really enjoy wearing Marsala this winter.
