Get the look: Off-Duty Cool
>> OFF-DUTY Style
Valet Mag guides readers into the new season, with a short but chock-full look book for the famished style conscious. Since last Spring, the deal has been all about the laid-back, off-duty style that champions today's paired-down masculinity. Making the transition from Spring to Fall is exactly where Valet comes in. Check out more of the looks and get great ideas for Fall such as layering, still putting on your favorite baseball jacket and the perfect sunglasses to don
Inspired by the 50s workwear shirts, going for a Nigel Cabourn reversible shirts is getting more bang for your buck. Aside from the fact that it's as durable as a man could ever want his clothes to be, its classic print and style fused with such modern sensibilities like its reversible quality and lighter material, could take you from Fall's coldest to the first light breezes of Spring.
>> THE HERITAGE ISSUE
A magazine cover this arresting, thanks to model Alex Dunstan, deserves so little words. But do get yourselves a copy of Sportswear International's September/October 2010 issue, where you could read all about the world's coolest, heritage brands and most of all, get your insider's peek into the best denim picks of the season (and next).
>> WRIST TAKERS
The current obsession with scuba-inspired watches mixed with braided bracelets still flows into Fall. Only this time, change it up a bit by opting for a watch that's generally sport---instead of just scuba-diving ready---like Chopard's handsome Mille Miglia Gran Tursmo model and pair it with a bunjee-like rope inspired Miansai Double Wrap Bracelet. It looks sporty, casual but still elegantly dressed-up.
>> TOUGH ACT
When one can't find shoes to wear, go get your boots on. It is true, what DETAILS said that no matter what you're wearing, boots will always do a good job grounding it. And since the hiking-inspired trend is still felt through the runways of menswear, check out Buttero's hiking boots. Its round shape and perfect chocolate brown actually makes for a tough act to compete with.
>> TOUCH THE FUTURE
The iPod has come a long way since its conception and now, Apple's latest offering (one of a lot actually) is the newly minted iPod Touch. It still is the same iPod at a glance, but now it comes with its own two-way camera system that allows users FaceTime, a video calling feature that'll require users to trade their Apple IDs and be able to communicate wherever they are around the world. With a crisper and clearer display, HD video recording and better gaming experience, Steve Jobs has yet again, gave us the touch of the future.
>> FALL FOR FOUR
American icon, Ralph Lauren, has his latest collection of colognes for the classic Ralph Lauren man. The Big Pony Collection fits Ralph Lauren's disciples into four, masculine scents (and personalities): Sporty, Seductive, Adventurous and Stylish. This season, these four most definitely would have a lot buying. Which one are you though?
