Tommy Hilfiger – Tommy Jeans 90’s Style For Summer 2017

Featuring:

Tommy Jeans Summer 2017 Collection

As you know I love the 90’s trends which have been going for a few years, and one of the biggest clothing brands which has really embraced the retro vibes has been Tommy Hilfiger. They’ve brought back the Tommy Jeans menswear for a reboot last year, not just once, but two mini collections. The Summer is here, and they’ve come back with some colours perfect for the Summer, and keep the classic 90’s style with a summer edge to it.

The four hues which are available in a few styles are called Lemon Meringue, Quartz Pink, Corydalis Blue, and Dusty Aqua. These are backed up with the staple colours white, navy and grey.

UPDATED FOR 2018

And they’re off!

Having a day at the races is not just about putting a few bets on the horses anymore, well, has it ever been? There’s always been a lot of emphasis on what the girls are wearing, and who’ll have the best or most outlandish hat, but men’s style is just as important, so what you wear at the races should be something on par with your female counterpart. Let the ladies bring the glamour, and the gents bring the style.

Featuring:

tommy-jeans-90s-collection-2016-1

Tommy Hilfiger dropped the Tommy Jeans 90’s Capsule Collection back in April, and since it’s success the line has been expanded and more nostalgia has been added to the line up. As you know I love 90’s fashion trends, they have been big for a few years, and continue to grow and become more popular.

The new additions include a new T-shirt with the iconic Tommy Jeans logo, this time without the wording, and the graphic being printed on the front of the shirt is it’s entirety, a hooded sweatshirt with the same design and including the Tommy Jeans wording down the sleeves. For the Winter months, a padded gilet has been added, as well as a metallic down puffer jacket, and some cotton fleece sweatpants.

One of the key pieces from the collection is a varsity style jacket, with a wool body, faux leather sleeves and Tommy Jeans graphic to the back of the jacket. The Tee is £40, with hoody being £110, sweatpants £90 and the varsity jacket coming in at £190.

They’re all available at Tommy Jeans here, if you want to get your 90’s on.

Fashion Friday No.12 – Best Menswear Of The Week

friday-fashion12-1

It’s back! Fashion Friday has returned to Michael 84 to bring you the best menswear and clothing for guys of the week. Let me take the hassle of shopping around and showcase a small selection of what’s caught my eye over the past week.

The Calvin Klein Re-issued clothing is still on trend, and CK know it, and have released even more reincarnations of their favourite 90’s classic pieces of clothing. You can get this Calvin Klein Jeans Sweatshirt which comes in a couple of colourways, my favourite being this tonal dark blue colour which CK are calling night sky. Get it here at Calvin Klein for £80.

In keeping with the 90’s trend, there’s this Kappa Track Jacket. It’s a new design, but keeps the nostalgic taping and piping down the arms and classic Kappa logo to the front. The blue and white half colour works well, you can get it for £60 here

First up for the knitwear and jumpers is this one from DR Denim. The Noah Neppy Knit comes in an 80% lambswool mix in a marled style, and will be a good addition to you wardrobe game. It’s yours for £65 – here

friday-fashion12-2

Light coloured knits are great, I really like them, and this one from TOPMAN is no exception. It’s an Ecru Textured Sweatshirt and is a good start if you’re looking to increase or start a new wardrobe for Autumn, a very reasonable £22 here

As you’ll probably know if you’ve read the blog over the Summer, nautical stripes are on trend, and I love them. Just because the Summer is over doesn’t mean the trend has to be, and you can get this TOPMAN Striped Jumper if you want to take the trend into Autumn. For £30 it’s a good way to keep the style going. Get it here

If you are in need of a pair of jeans for this season, you can have a look at the LEVIS 511 Black Slim Jeans. It’s my favourite fit, and as you’ll know from reading my 5 pairs of denim guide, you’ll want at least one pair of black denim in your armoury. Get a pair of classic Levis for £80 here

friday-fashion12-3

Autumn and Winter are about layering, and you can do this with a good, solid knit. This cotton cashmere knit from Tommy Hilfiger is something you should seriously consider. Grey is a timeless colour, the V-neck style means you can wear it with a shirt to have that all important smart casual look. Get it for £80 here

If you want to add more dimension to your knitwear, the GANT Donegal Stripe Jumper could be a good way to do it. It’s a neutral colour, but the sand colour could be one you don’t already own, with the stripes it will add some individuality to your look. You can buy it for £95 – here

If you want an alternative to dark jeans, these GANT Chinos could be it. Khaki in colour, you can style them up with most colours which will keep your outfit looking smart. They’re £85  here

friday-fashion12-4

The Adidas NMD-R1 are some of the most talked about trainers in menswear at the moment. If you want to join the trend you can do so with these all black trainers, which will be available in a week for £110 here

If you prefer to have smarter footwear, Paul Smith has you covered with these Bordeaux Christo Brogues. Crafted in Italy from Parma calf leather, they are not only a stylish piece, but also an investment in high quality footwear. Get yourself a pair for £285  here

That’s it for Fashion Friday this week! Remember to check out the men’s fashion advice section for men’s style tips, and as always, if you spot something worth a mention, shout me on Twitter at @Michael84Blog and let me know 🙂

Tommy Jeans 90’s Style Is Back – Capsule Collection

Featuring:

Tommy Jeans 90's Capsule Collection

Remember that Tommy Hilfiger logo? If you were a child of the 90’s like me, you’ll remember that distinctive Tommy Hilfiger flag logo which was synonymous with the brand back in the good old days of the 90’s. As you’ll know if you’re a regular reader, I love that 90’s fashion is back (check my 90s fashion tips) and Tommy Hilfiger was one of the major brands back then. A few brands have been doing re-releases and re-branding, going back to the 90’s, such as Calvin Klein, French Connection, Ellesse and Kappa, Tommy Jeans is the latest label to be making a very fashionable comeback, fashionably late of course 😉

The collection comprises of flag sweatshirts in a couple of colours, available for £90, as well as a couple of tees in a few colours, costing £40. The capsule collection is finished with a denim jacket with trademark logo to the back, costing £150.

The T-shirts are well worth a look at, if you’re into 90’s or street style these will go down well and be a nice little addition to your wardrobe, or if you’re thinking ahead to the Autumn/Winter, the sweatshirts look really good.

Friday Fashion – Men’s Style Edit No.8

mens-style-blog-fashion-edit-8

It’s the end of the week which means one thing, more men’s fashion advice in the Fashion Friday roundup. We’re getting colder days and longer nights, so keeping warm and layering up is starting to become a priority. Check out this week’s picks:

Converse Baseball Jacket – £120 – here

Cheap Monday T Shirt – £20 – here

Mango Suede Jacket – £120 – here

Barbour Steve McQueen Jacket – £229 – here

Hugo Boss Zip Top – £129 – here

Hugo Boss Knit – £119 – here

Tommy Hilfiger Shirt – £85 – here

Superdry Jumper – £60 – here

First up is this Converse bomber jacket. I love the contrasting body and sleeve colour, and the black works well with the dark grey. It’s light, but there’s enough padding to keep you warm throughout the Autumn.

Just because it’s getting cooler doesn’t mean you can’t add a tee to your wardrobe. This Cheap Monday tee is new and cool, complete with the Cheap Monday wording to the front, layer it with a shirt and jacket for warm Autumn style.

Suede jackets are always big for Autumn, and Mango Man do a few really nice jackets, which are reasonably priced. This one comes in a few colours, I’ve selected it in black. It has two flap pockets on either side of the jacket, with a zip-opening. With quilted panels on the shoulders and a bomber length, it’s a good choice for this season and for years to come.

Barbour wax jackets are iconic, and I love the Steve McQueen jackets. This one is new in at House Of Fraser, and is a timeless classic.

For the milder days and nights this light sweatshirt jacket from Hugo Boss will do the trick. It’s the Zkyler from the BOSS Orange line and is made from soft sweatshirt cotton material, in a light grey colour with mottled effect. It comes complete with kangaroo pouch pockets and is a regular fit.

I love pull-overs when it gets a bit colder, you can smarten up a look with a V-neck knit and a good shirt, so a solid sweater is always a good thing to own. This Hugo Boss sweater fits the bill, it’s available in a large number of colours, I’ve picked the classic black colour. It’s slim fit, and made from fine merino wool, so will feel as good as it looks.

If you want to go for a smart-casual look a patterned shirt will work well, whether you layer it up or wear it with a suede or leather jacket. When it gets colder you can layer it with a sweater or cardigan, dressing it up slightly but keeping a bit of that laid back look. I really like the colours of this Tommy Hilfiger shirt, the ‘Ryan’ regular fit shirt.

Last up is this jumper from Superdry. We all need a cosy, chunky knit, and this one looks to be exactly that. A cable knit jumper, in a classic cream colour, or ‘Porridge’ as the guys over at Superdry are calling it. It’s a crew neck which means you don’t have to worry too much about what you’ve got under it.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s Fashion Friday 🙂 As always, you can see last week’s here, and don’t forget to send me your tips on Twitter at @Michael84Blog 🙂

90’s Fashion Trends – The Come Back Of 90s Style

michael-84-kappa-1

The 90’s was an absolute immense decade for so many reasons; The music, the technology, the good times and of course the fashion. With a lot of cultures and sub-cultures being born or coming of age, there was such a rich diverse of style and fashion, a lot of it from the 90’s music scenes like Brit Pop. I love shows set in the 90’s like This Is England 90, fashion was and still is a big part of life, and it’s done well in the show.

Fashion Friday Edit: Men’s Style Tips No.5

mens-style-blog-fashion-tips-5

It’s time for another Friday Fashion Edit, which features more fashion advice and my favourite picks from brands and shops around the globe. This week I have gone all Autumn style, with an abundance of jackets and knits designs to keep you warm in the cold weather that’s right around the corner. This is what I have for this week’s edition.

Jack Wills Donalson Cashmere Knit – £129

Reiss 1971 Vice Jacket – £265

Benetton Long Sleeve T-Shirt – £30

Jockey Printed Y-Front Trunks – £18

Armani Watch £104

Hugo Boss Quilted Jacket – £230

Benetton V-Neck Knit – £19

Tommy Hilfiger Knit – £85

First up is a knit from Uni students favourite brand, Jack Wills. Whether you’re at Uni or not, this 100% cashmere knit is soft to touch and will not look out of place anywhere. I love the colour, just because the dark nights are coming doesn’t mean you have to dress for the dark, and add some light and colour to your look with this top.

Part of the 1971 collection is this jacket from Reiss. It’s not a full blown winter coat, but it comes complete with a shearling collar for added warmth, with a mottled pattern throughout it adds texture to your look.

The Benetton long sleeve tee is perfect for layering, and comes in a red colour which you may not already have in your wardrobe.

One of the best bargains I have seen for a long time is this Emporio Armani watch. I love the minimal look when it comes to watches, Analogue is a must, and I do love a leather strap. This comes with all of the above, it’s a fashion label watch at an amazing price of £104 at ASOS. If I didn’t already have so many watches I would buy this. Get it while you can at this price.

Jockey have been making underwear since 1934 and having a few pair myself I know they’re really nice to wear. They have come up with a limited edition pair which are emblazoned with adverts dating back to 1876. I think these look really cool and quite literally make a statement. Coming in at £18 they’re affordable, and they will be a unique pair of underwear in your drawer.

If you’re thinking about a winter coat then this brand new BOSS Orange quilted jacket has to be considered. It’s available in navy and black, I’ve selected it in the navy. It’s waterproof and looks like it will stand the test of time throughout this Autumn/Winter and many more.

If you’ve not got many knits or sweats you’re in luck, I have added this Benetton one to the fashion tips too. It’s available in a few colour, including grey which will work well for layering with a shirt. It’s available right now for only £19 down from £27.

Last up and it’s another knit, this time from Tommy Hilfiger. It’s a cashmere blend which means it’s not 100% cashmere, in fact only 8%. Usually I would not recommend such a mix unless it was at an unbelievable price, however this is mixed with Pima cotton, which is a super soft cotton. This combination will result in an ultra soft knit, which you’ll be able to wear casually with a tee or dress it up for a smart casual look with a shirt.

That’s your lot for this week’s Fashion Friday. Remember you can always look back and check last week’s edition, and As always, you can send your tips to me on Twitter at @Michael84Blog 😉
