LCM Style Diary: Darren Kennedy

Hi Guys

London Collections Men or LCM as it is also known is now over, with all the attention now on Pitti Immagine over in Italy. Here in Ireland we are lucky enough to be blessed with many great style influences. I am going to look at Darren Kennedy’s outfits throughout LCM and see how you can copy his look and maybe you too can vote Ireland’s most stylish man. (more…)

MLB Sports Luxe Look with Fanatics

Hi Guys

I was recently approached by an American website called Fanatics to style a Sports Luxe look using one of the Major League Baseball caps featured on their website. I was happy to accept  for two reasons, one I love trying out new ideas for my blog and two I have always thought Sports Luxe would be a tricky look for me to style but I like a challenge!

Off I went in search of inspiration from magazines and the internet to see if I could find suitable pieces.I wanted to look for pieces that I would wear but would also be ideal for this look. First off I had to pick my Baseball cap to use for the look. I chose this Chicago Cubs Grey and Blue snapback cap. Even though I am more of an NFL fan I chose the Chicago Cubs cap because my sister Danielle spent a summer in Chicago. I also have many relations over there also making it a personal reason why I chose them.

So now that I have the cap picked, lets move on to the rest of the outfit. While getting inspiration I noticed that bomber jackets and fitted joggers were major players in this trend so I found these two perfect pieces.

I have already mentioned the bomber jacket from boohoo.com in a previous post as my pick of the preview that I attended. So I thought it was fitting to have it in the outfit. Its colour and texture make it a must have.

The Navy skinny joggers accompany this outfit perfectly and I feel the colours really compliment each other. The joggers give the outfit a nice tailored look

. I decided to put this White baseball polo shirt from River Island underneath the bomber jacket. I like the overall look of the polo shirt and the style was just fitting for the task in hand.

Finally to the footwear I have always been a big fan of Converse so these break point trainers were the perfect pair to add the finishing touches to my Sports Luxe outfit. I just thought the colour worked well with the look and complimented the rest of the pieces.

Hope you guys enjoyed the post and please provide feedback of the sports luxe look! To shop for a baseball cap like the one featured go to the baseball hat page on fanatics website.

Bomber Jackets: Spring/Summer Essential

Hi Guys,

It’s hard to believe that this post is nearly a year old and is still my most popular post! Seeing as we have a range of bomber jackets this Spring/Summer, I decided I would update this post. My inspiration still comes from last year’s MTV Movie Awards. Bomber Jackets and Sneakers were the main menswear talking points. We saw Miles Teller and Zac Efron rocking the Bomber looking both cool and casual at the awards.

Seeing how versatile this jacket is, I decided to browse online and pick my favourites from the High Street.

This pink bomber jacket from River Island is perfect for this time of year. I love the detail, it gives off a nice biker feel to it. The colour is also great for Spring/Summer so it’s perfect for a night on the town. I would pair this with a white polo shirt and dark wash slim fit denim. Add a pair of navy desert boots to smarten up the look.

This beauty was my top pick from the recent Boohoo press day. I purchased it within days of seeing it. I wore this on a recent night out and teamed it with a navy t-shirt, burgundy chinos and a pair of trainers I picked up in Primark recently. I felt that the combination worked well and I know that the jacket can also be used for a smarter look.

 

 

This Navy number from Burton is more on the smarter side of things. I would pair this with a white shirt and navy tailored trousers. I would add some black Chelsea boots to finish it off.

 

 

This satin Bomber from Mango would be a great addition to any stylish man’s wardrobe. The colour just makes it so versatile. Just think about it, you can dress like Ryan Gosling from Drive for just €89.95! This would be a timeless piece that will be used again and again.

 

 

This one from Bershka is a real bargain at €35.99. As in the picture, I would pair it would wear it with a check shirt and jeans because of the casual nature of the jacket. Also, another major plus point is that black doesn’t go out of fashion, so it will be a piece that will last season after season!

I really love this one from Topman. I won’t lie it was the Teal colour that immediately drew me to it. It really stands out! So I would recommend this as one of your statement pieces for the upcoming season.

 

Pull and Bear €46

Pull and Bear €40

 

 

Finally, we have this tan faux suede Bomber from Pull and Bear. I really liked it when I saw it recently and I’m really sorry I left it behind. It is also a bargain at €40. I really hope it is still there next time I pop in. http://www.pullandbear.com/ie/en/suede-effect-bomber-jacket-c0p100036938.html

Penneys also have a great range of bomber jackets this spring/summer.

It is considered their IT jacket for this season, make sure and check out Primark.ie to check when they are available and are priced between €18 and €28. Would it be wrong not to buy one for that price? Wouldn’t it? Of course, it would! I expect these to fly off the shelves so act fast!

I really hope you enjoyed the post and that you pick yourself up a bargain or two!
