Prints work for both relaxed and amped up situations. It can work even on the most casual of days. You have the option to wear a graphic tee, printed chinos, dress shirt, or even Bermuda shorts. But when wearing prints, whether it be Aztec, polka dots or floral prints, you want to tone it down with a basic pair of jeans and shoes. Use neutral colors to balance out a loud combination.

Dark trousers will also look great when paired with a bright patterned shirt. If you find floral prints a big feminine, you can toughen it up by pairing a floral shirt with more masculine accessories like a blazer or jeans. You may also wear a neutral-patterned jacket to combat those April showers.

Don’t be afraid to play around with patterns and colors. Try out a few patterns to see which one will suit the location and occasion. Have fun working on your individual style.

Smart casual

Most people are under the impression that print shirts are meant for casual attires. Oftentimes, people see it as a holiday shirt or those worn by middle-aged men. Sure, they may look a lot more casual as compared to their dress shirt counterparts, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be worn stylishly.

Floral prints, for instance, can look sophisticated, provided that you only have one item of clothing featuring this pattern. It could be a floral shirt or a jacket. Match it up with solid colored pieces like a basic pair of trousers. You want it to look pulled together and not too busy.

If you decide to wear a patterned blazer, be sure to wear a white shirt underneath to tone it down a bit. If you try to pull off mixed prints, there’s a good chance that the colors will clash and you may end up looking like a walking street light or a clown.

Suit up

Imagine a jacket and trousers that bear the same print. That’s a sure head turner. We know it’s a bold start, but if you really want to look cutting edge, you might as well head into it full on. Keep in mind, though, that everything should be done in moderation.

If you find that you absolutely love printed suits, we recommend that you pair it with a solid colored shirt of a completely different color. This will help balance out the busyness and loudness of the suit. Neutral colors are your best option. Do this and you’ll become the most well dressed man you want to be.

Accessorize

Bold print makes for a great statement piece. If you are looking to add a little flare to your outfit but find it a bit intimidating, accessories would be a great place to start. Ties, watches, belts, caps, socks, shoes or other accessories that feature paisley or floral prints may be what you need to make an impact. This is especially recommended if you’re just starting to dip your toes into the patterned end of the pool.

If you’re a smart dresser, you may want to start by pairing a white shirt with a patterned tie. White shirt is like a blank canvas, so you can use whatever tie you like and it will undoubtedly look good.

Introduce pattern into your wardrobe slowly, especially if you are new to wearing print. Just start small to see how it feels for you. When you feel confident enough to move towards a bolder wardrobe, then go ahead and invest in printed shirts, pants, shorts and other pieces of clothing.

Final thoughts

Bold prints make for some much needed color and vibrancy into minimal or neutral outfits. When done right, you’ll be able to stand out in the crowd. But wearing prints will only work for you if you feel confident with what you’re wearing.

Awkwardness is extremely difficult to hide. Any kind of second guessing will make you look comfortable. When wearing bold prints, the key is to wear it with a great deal of confidence. Remember, it’s how you carry your clothes that make the biggest impact.

No Matter what you call it: mantuary, man space, or a male sanctuary, every Men needs a mans cave to just chill out and be himself. Let’s be honest, the gals always have the final say in house/apartment décor and design. Not that we really care about that stuff, but we need a space of our own without upsetting the female obsession with interior design. Continue Reading…

Best Men’s Watches under $200

The Dude —  October 6, 2015

Since autumn is now here and fall clothes are again on our minds, so are watches. While we have nothing against wearing a nice watch in summer as well (especially if it happens to be waterproof), colder seasons are particularly well-suited to display a manly watch on your wrist. But while the options for exquisite pieces are limitless and you can find plenty of vanity options to invest in, sometimes we just want a nice change and some variety without spending our entire credit balance.

Our advice, therefore, is to simply invest in one, two or three luxury watches to have for more formal occasions and as a fall back for a classy choice, but to also feel free to indulge in the occasional extra treat. Less expensive watches are not particularly a timeless piece, but they can be more colourful or with a funky design, precisely because it’s ok for them to only be a good match for some outfits and not all of them. Variety is good, so feel free to experiment. This is our list for the best men’s watches under $200, keep ‘em pinned and have your pick:

Jack Mason Ole Miss University Rebels Stripe
