it's the way WE roll

It is time to give some credit to those lads out there making an effort and spending some extra minutes in front of the mirror to prove to the incredulous that the male kind can look as dazzling as anyone else, or even more. The trick is to add a final touch of scruffiness to every ensemble so your manhood does not seem jeopardized by your caring for your image.Model Jamie Dornan and actor Josh Harnett are very aware of the tips above. Simply take out some of the pieces of clothing that are classically worn with a suit —be it the tie, the blazer or the trousers— and substitute them with something more casual. It might look like you just grabbed the first thing at hand but you will look very stylish.

When in winter and dubious stick to dark plain colours. Even though this is pretty basic it works almost every time. A good combination of black, grey and the colours of the leaves over the grass in the park never goes wrong. However, if you feel you are ready for more you may play with texture, cuts and some simple accessorizing —just like the gentlemen above.

No matter what your mates say, there is not a set dress code for any time of the day. Black is very recommendable, nonetheless. Never discard jeans beforehand as they might just be what you need. Mix them up with your really dressed-up blazer and shoes and you got the look. Your other option (only for the über-stylish) is to do it à la Ghesquière —it works every time.

If your date of birth is more than 30 years from 2008 jeans probably do not do it for you. Instead, be creative with the top of your outfit. Blazer are not always compulsory and if you wear one it does not necessarily have to be just over a shirt. Try cardigans and v-neck jumpers as both addition and substitute.

Who said it was boring to be a man? The men above are a clear example of how clean and simple go well with creative and fashionable. Play with layers and experiment with other hues from within the same palettes.

Classics such as the blazer and the tie or the cravat are very much a current fashion. If they seem to dressed-up for daily situations simply dress them down with sneakers and washed denim.

Great post, it actually will help me decide what new chic clothing item to get my hubby as an anniversary present.

He already surprised me with a gorgeous diamond necklace from which I'll be wearing with a new gown.

I want him to have an outfit like Daniel craig so we can look like movie stars when we go to the opera!
