There’s really nothing that says “I’m important” quite like a Calvin Klein suit. Known for his ability to combine the trendiness of modern style with a timeless quality, he maintains the perfect level of sophistication. Klein is a fail-proof plan when choosing a designer. This gray suit from the white label collection is an excellent choice. We paired it with a pastel pink shirt and fuschia plaid tie. The colors and pattern of the shirt and tie give the suit a trendier, more modern feel. The classic gray suit keeps the balance by being the staple of refinement. This look says, not only am I professional but I’m contemporary as well. Our model, Eric Rudolph, director of Human Resources for Paxton Media Group and father to Jackson, 13, and Allee, 9, shows us the very avant-garde look that can be created with just a few adjustments on the conventional suit.
Every man has that staple outfit he wears during the summer, which only varies by color. For most men, especially dads, it is a polo shirt and shorts. Who gives us a Polo shirt better than Polo by Ralph Lauren? No one. This year color is prevalent in men’s fashion. Why not choose something that stands out? If you’re worried that you might attract too much attention, try a pastel. Pastels have remained fashionable since the ‘50s, so they are always a safe choice. We paired this royal blue Polo with a soft mint green colored short. The logo on the breast of the shirt ties the two colors together. This is just a small fashion upgrade on your usual attire, which makes it a simple way to update your style.
These are two ways to take items that you are accustomed to and slightly add a little 2011 flair. Simple little tricks to make you a little more hip, and yet still a classic gentleman. Another tip I’d like to suggest would be to utilize the amazing sources of knowledge you can find in your own home. Take your wife or daughter shopping with you. You’d be amazed at the assets you have right at your fingertips.
