Suede Jackets For Autumn – This Season’s Trend

michael84-mens-fashion-suede-jacket-jofama-7

As you’ll have read in my Spring Suede Jackets guide, I love a good soft leather jacket. They’re not only perfect for Spring, but they’re a great style of jacket to wear in the Autumn too. As you’ll know, suede is a type of leather which has a napped finish, with lamb and goat most commonly used, with calf and even deer also being used. The jackets are usually pretty tough and thick, which means wearing one of these in the Autumn is a really good go to piece, with a lot of styles and colours now available. The enemy of suede is rain and water, although you can get suede protectors which will do a good job if you get caught out in the rain.

As with every piece of clothing, there’s plenty of choice at all different price-points. Typically with leather jackets, a genuine suede jacket will start at around £100, and from there goes upwards to whatever your wallet can afford! Grab a high street label such as Mango or Topman for under £150, premium high street brands such as Reiss or Ted Baker will come in at £200 – £400, and luxury and designer brands like Burberry and Tom Ford will run into the thousands.

A suede jacket can be looked at as a good investment, and should last you plenty of Autumn and mild Winters to come, providing you look after it well enough. They’re timeless, so you don’t have to worry about them going out of style, one to your wardrobe or expanding it with a different colour or style is something to consider.

Here’s over 30 of the best suede jackets for this season, from the high street and luxury brands, there’s something for everyone’s budget.

Men’s Summer Fashion Tips – Sweat Shorts

mens-sweat-shorts-1

Sweatpants have been thought of for a long time as a bit scruffy, super casual and even related to chav culture, but all of that changed a couple of years ago. We saw a resurgence in sport luxe fashion, with higher end menswear brands showcasing their take on the trends, with casual tops and bottoms including more fashionable, better cut sweat pants and joggers. From that comes the summer trend of sweat shorts, and it’s something I really like and have embraced.

You may remember I got a few pair of sweat shorts from H&M a short while ago, and I really like them. At only £8 a pair you can’t go wrong, and they are good quality with a really nice fit. The summer season is here, and other fashion labels and brands have an array of sweat shorts ready for you to buy, in a range of colours and styles.

Sweat Shorts – The Fit

The fit is always important, and with this type of shorts you’re only likely to find 2 leg lengths; regular and long. Shorter lengths are usually reserved for chino, denim or more commonly swim shorts. A good rule of thumb is that the length should never go past the knee, anything else and they are getting a bit too long. Since these are sweat shorts they will almost certainly come with an elasticated waistband, so you can cheat a little on the waist size if you’re an odd shape and need to compensate for leg length.

The most versatile style of shorts?

I love chino shorts, they are super smart and when you want to wear something cooler in the summer or on holiday but want to keep it looking stylish, chino shorts are the way to go. However they’re never going to have the comfort of the relaxed fitting sweat short. That makes sweat shorts really versatile; Wearing them out and about in the city in the middle of the summer, relaxing by the pool or at the beach, and chilling out at home on a summer’s evening.

How to style sweat shorts

Sweat shorts will always be seen as a casual piece of clothing. That doesn’t mean they can’t be stylish. There’s a lot of different styles out there, from plain to patterned in a vast array of colours which you can dress up with different items of clothing. Wear them with a plain white tee for a classic look, or go for a smart casual look with a pain tee with a buttoned down shirt. Make sure you co-ordinate the colours so they go well together, wearing contrasting bottoms and top can look great.

Verdict

Sweat shorts are never going to be a formal statement of a refined gentlemen, but they aren’t supposed to be. They are, however, a great piece of clothing to have in your armoury for the summer, when you want to kick back and relax or have a more casual look. If you’re going casual, then do it right 😉

Just Bought: All Saints Jacket & MR KG Kurt Geiger Shoes

Featuring: ,

Hello blog!

Today I have bought a couple of things, a new jacket and new pair of shoes.

The jacket I picked up was from the All Saints store in Newcastle, and was the powder denim one which I blogged about before. It’s really nice, lightweight and short, really great for the summer and nights out. They had just got it in the store, it was not even on the shop floor, someone had to get it from the back, so I may be the first one to buy it from the Newcastle store 😉

I also got some shoes, I HATE buying shoes which I have mentioned before, I dunno why I just do! 😛 I found a couple of pair, tried a few on and bought these MR KG by Kurt Geiger ones from Fenwick Newcastle. I had the poor girl running all over getting me different ones in different sizes, I am a 9 in these MR KG shoes, my previous (Base London) shoes are a 10. The sales girl was amazing and helpful and I ended up getting this pair which I like.

All Saints powder grey denim jacket. – £95

MR KG Kurt Geiger Shoes – £55 (from Fenwick)

Grey Washed Denim Jackets For Spring 2012

Featuring: ,

I have found a few denim jackets for this spring. I like denim jackets, they are rugged and add a bit of vintage feel but can still be soft and nice to wear. The biggest problem I have with them is that if you wear jeans and you wear a “jean jacket”, then it can look like you are wearing some sort of denim tracksuit.

I have found some denim jackets that will work well with dark colour denim, and they look really good.

 

I really like these 2 jackets. Both give a washed out vintage style of look. They can be worn with almost any colour denim and will contrast well.

The first jacket is by All Saints and is the “powder denim jacket” in washed grey. This is a slim fitting jacket and comes cabbage-rolled for added vintage effect. £95 at All Saints.

The second is a jacket from Nudie Jeans and is the Nudie Terry Sunbleach Wash Denim Jacket. Slightly darker than the All Saints jacket, this one features soft denim and is a regular fit. This one is a little more expensive at £120.

Chunky buttons come with both of these jackets which I love, giving them that added extra premium feel.
