Don’t Be Green With Envy Over This Classic Scent

The luxe brand is bringing back a classic with Vétiver, the original signature scent from 1957. The only difference is the packaging, now held in a green lacquered bottle. Inspired by Madam Carven who always loved the color green.

Bespoken Word: The ABCs of Men’s Bags

From Totes, to Briefcases to Weekenders - Guerre Divulges the ABCs of Men's Bags.

In this day and age, we constantly find ourselves armed with cell phones, tablets, keys, change, and countless other oddities, which makes stuffing one’s pockets the least ideal option for the man who doesn’t want to interrupt the well-crafted silhouette of his suit or trousers.

The No Fuss Portfolio Bag

For the most part designers have all ventured into accessories, including men’s bags and the options are vast: Totes, messenger bags, briefcases, duffle bags, weekenders, document holders, back packs, all with the same goal – being functional, stylish and manly. I personally have a preference for either the Weekender, tote, or document holder. I love their modernity and versatility as they will accessorize both casual and dressier looks.

Bespoken-Word-Guerre-Portfolio-Bag-Mens-SaksPOV

Portfolios – Keep Your Silhouette Intact

The portfolio has a new business feel. Important documents, the favorite magazine or newspaper and not much else. It is easy to navigate the busy downtown streets while maintaining a light load. The Spring 2014 men’s shows demonstrated that the portfolio had certainly arrived as a fashion piece. Some of the major brands, like Fendi, showcased this particular piece, while Prada and Burberry used the Spring 2015 season to highlight non-traditional envelope style bags.

Bespoken-Word-Guerre-Tote-Bag-Mens-SaksPOV

The Always Dependable Tote Bag

The Tote is perhaps the perfect every day bag. While the bag holds everything your document holder could, it obviously has room for more, including the laptop, or the spur of the moment stock from the corner store. One of its major conveniences resides in the fact you won’t need to worry about wrinkling your suit as you would with a messenger bag or backpack. The tote combines the best of the briefcase and duffle bag without the board room or gym lockers image.

Bespoken-Word-Carry-All-Bag-saks-mens-Sakspov

Make Your Great Escape with a Sleek Leather Weekender

When investing in the leather holdall weekender, one only needs to remember that time actually acts as your ally. The bag tends to look better with time, the nicks and distress show character and act as stamps for the world traveller or local gent around town.

Bespoken-Word-Guerre-Leather-Briefcase-Mens-SaksPOV

The Soft Briefcase – A Classic with a Modern Touch

Regardless to how you dress, finding the right bag consists of discovering that link between lifestyle and personal style. When it comes to this key accessory, the selection is vast enough to allow you to express your personality without sacrificing practicality. Express yourself and carry on.

Congratulations Public School! See You Next Month for New York Fashion Week!

“They’ve been instrumental in what they call ‘Convergence’,” Jennings continued. “The idea of mixing high and low street-wear and haute couture with both masculine and feminine elements – all those variables coming together. It’s street, but more advanced. Looking from runway to the street. It’s just cool. It’s very functional, but casual. And they’re great at mixing tailored elements.”

Keep your eyes peeled for more from Public School this upcoming Fashion Week.


Bespoken Word: Grooming Essentials

See What Tricks Guerre Divulges From This Daily Routine.

For many men the body grooming experience generally begins and ends somewhere between brushing one’s teeth and applying deodorant after the shower. While the process of grooming focuses on multiple aspects, one of the obvious should never be overlooked – The Face.

Bespoken-Word-Guerre-Mens-Shaving-SaksPOV

Cleanliness is Next to Godliness

While electrical blades work, nothing beats a good old fashion razor. A shaving brush (badger hair brush) tends to hold the most water, thus creating more lather, which is essential for a good shave. The brush also raises the hair allowing for a closer shave. Finding the right shaving cream begins with turning away from cheaper drug store brands that foam up. The point of shaving is to lubricate, not foam, therefore quality creams and gels create rich lather leading to a soft and wet beard.

The Grooming Essentials

Acqua Di Parma: Shaving Brush & Stand  I  Cellmen Switzerland: Face Revitalizing Treatment  I  Clarins: Super Moisture Balm  I  Bulgari: After Shave Balm  I  Penhaligon’s: Bayolea Shave Cream

Moisturizing your face is the final step of this daily routine. While cleansing removes dead skin cells, dirt and bacteria, it strips the skin of hydration. Moisturizers balance the skin. Choose one with a built-in UV filter if wrinkles are a major concern.

Male Model Benjamin Eidem Showing You the Great Results of Considerable Grooming

While a decade ago, the term ‘metrosexual’ evoked the image of a man spending an excessive amount of time and energy to prepare himself, grooming oneself is about finding products that coincide with your skin, and taking just enough time to revitalize and counterbalance the fast pace of life. Grooming is not an issue of vanity, it’s a matter of well being and part of a lifestyle.

 

Make it a resolution to keep your grooming habit on point in 2015 with these essentials from Saks.com.


Bespoken Word: The Essential Holiday Jacket

Take the Gentleman's Approach and Integrate a Blazer into Your Everyday Wardrobe.

Wool, cashmere and tweed make up a large part of the stylish man’s winter wardrobe, without question. Regardless of the season, the rules remain the same – it’s about the right fit, good quality and finding the right statement pieces. With all the impending holiday get-togethers, parties, bashes and intimate gatherings, the question is how do you indulge in the holiday bliss without the christmassy sweater.

This season visits rich and lush by way of fabric choice. In terms of vibe, think man of the world, worthy successor of James Bond, then visualize a sleek and sharp presentation – the statement piece coup de grace for the holiday festivities – The Velvet Blazer.

Alexander McQueen: Velvet Blazer

The Velvet blazer has been known to be a great evening piece, not infrequently coupled with a bow tie and white shirt. It still runs the night when the tuxedo is exempt from the party (and is no slouch even when the tuxedo is present). This has become an all-day piece, not only relegated to the evening events, it may now escort you to all your activities from sun up to the last toast of the night.

Salvatore Ferragamo: Cotton Velvet Blazer I True Religion: Geno Five-Pocket Camo Print Jeans

Think velvet jacket with jeans  and white shirt for a casual, effortlessly cool look.
For those in an playful mood, the same jacket could be paired with (camouflage) cargo pants and sneakers. Because style is also about combining a classic piece with something modern and hip, also known as mastering the rules and the art of breaking them.

Play Around With Patterns And Textures

Auspiciously, both alternatives work during the day and also well into the late night for more casual events.

 Burberry London: Formal Velvet Sportcoat I Joe’s: Savile Row Tailored-Fit Jeans

The velvet jacket and white shirt can be paired with tuxedo pants, velvet pants, or a dressy wool pant. Add the bow tie and you’ll be ready for a formal event, without compromising on creativity. After all, style is also about expressing yourself and in this case possibilities are endless.

On The Go In Style

The velvet jacket is nothing new, however, brands have tweaked it and refined it to make sure it remains current, modern and relevant. This is a piece that will certainly find a place in the most discerning gentlemen’s closets.
