Men’s Nautical Winter Style

I’m feeling quite nautical lately, but then I’ve always been attracted to the sea. Not sunny beaches and warm surf, but ships on choppy waters, pirates and sea creatures of all kinds. This year I’m seeing Nautical Winter Style everywhere; stripes, dark blues and wool caps, and I wanted to share my favorite finds for men’s nautical winter styles so far. There were many to choose from but I picked the four that I liked the most. Etre Shop For men, there is a special collection of northern nautical at Etre Shop. Crafted in the British Isles, Etre knows what “sea fairing”…

Lifetime Collective Fall 2012 Collection

This fall we can look forward to a lot of great things, cooler weather, elections, and whole new set of must haves for our closets. Anyone closet will work in this feature about Lifetime Collective, an art collective from Vancouver BC with a clothing centered purpose, driven by community, travel, and the people they meet. Any clothing company created by people who actually wear the clothes they make and know what they want out of a design is already miles above any mass produced clothing line, but the fact that Lifetime is also an artists collective earns them even more…

Photos of the Day: Beard Styles on the Street

Men have a fashion accessory that women just can’t have, facial hair. Maybe this is why mustaches are so popular on tees, jewelry and art these days (and for the last few years). Everyone should be able to fancify their face with a little home grown accessory right? Maybe beard styles aren’t for everyone, I go for piercings myself and some just like to appreciate mustaches and beards through art,  graphic tees and jewelry. Some guys are more willing than others to take on the work of maintaining facial hair for the benefits. So many beard styles to choose from, so little…

Gifts for the hard to please guy

I came up with a few suggestions based on my own shopping experiences today. These items are likely great for someone you know, especially those who are difficult to shop for.

The Boys are Alright – Men’s Street Style, the good, the great and the questionable.

Typically, it seems most men just don’t care about style as much as women. There are however some men who do care, and some of them happen to be in the Street Fashion flirkr group. Unfortunately, some need a little more help than others. I picked a range of men with very different taste in style, being as unbiased as possible. Some are stylish, some are fairly normally dressed and others are pushing style to the edge, or taking it back in time. Men with daring style are few and far between so although you may not like men’s street…

It’s Always Warm Somewhere

Ensemble – Oxford St, originally uploaded by xssat. in Sydney Comforting thought after what the northern US just went through (is going through). Here are some warm people in Australia to remind us all that although some of us are freezing to death, many of us are enjoying summer weather. Don’t be jealous, be happy for them, they’ll have their turn too (.. well.. some will). See More at //xssat.wordpress.com/!

What to buy a guy for x-mas?

– by: Jennyhicks I’ve been thinking about jewelery but different sorts of jewelery like really cool mens’ cufflinks. I think they will look amazing dressed down with say G-Star jeans, a shirt and sneakers. They could also wear a jacket for going out. I think the trend for mixing smart and not so smart is great. It allows you to mix different styles and look at designers you may not always go for for a complete look.

Portland’s First Warm Week!

Portland had its first semi-consistent week of sun and (near) warmth! A visit from out of town and tolerable weather got me on the street again! and where else to take an out of town friend than Hawthorne Street (first of many neighborhoods to see). Hawthorne can can get a bit overcrowded on weekends, but luckily we roamed around on a Wednesday. Weekdays offer more space to breath, less people to compete with at stores and a better chance of finding room or time to stop someone and ask them for a photo. Also, with the excellent weather, and hopefully…
