Most of us, including me, aren’t really in the mood for silly fashion photos given the current rise of fascism in the US and most of the Western world. You might argue that being all the way over in India, I’m hardly affected by this past month’s events. But some of my closest friends very much are, and I’m terrified for them. The fall of American democracy unfortunately affects us all. In case you wanted to take a few minutes off, however, and indulge in some pretties, here are some photos from last week. I know that for a lot of bloggers (and brands) staying ‘on-brand’ is a priority even at times like these, but as a brown woman and a once-immigrant, I don’t see it as an option.

“If somebody asks me ’What do you do for a living?’ I say, ’I help people.’ When I’m on an operation, I’m not thinking about anything but the operation; home is at home. What the job is in front of you, that’s the only thing that matters at the time. Guys are always gonna modify their gear the way that they want, obviously. Nobody is going to dictate how you carry magazines or what holster you use - the bottom line is results. If you’re on a direct action mission and you’re kicking doors, the only thing you’re thinking is: Check your six, give the squeeze and do your job. If everybody is standing then we’re good to go, let’s tackle the next problem. Every man around you has the upmost confidence in you to do your job and at the same time, you better do your job because they’re expecting you to. Success within a brotherhood is defined as taking care of your brothers…it’s the bottom line. Everybody comes home.”

Summer trends for 2017

Staying on trend might be difficult, even for a modern day gentleman. But good news for you: summer is coming, the time of the year when men fashion breaks out into a big party of different colours from bright to pastels. 

This summer the trend includes a lot of timeless colours like black, grey, navy, green and burgundy.

To make sure you have a clear vision of what the trends are going to be, we will inform you with the new and latest style for summer 2017.

Pastels

The new trend which was already upcoming last year are pastels. These are always nice in summer, especially when worn in suits. See the images underneath for inspiration.

Bright colours

One thing about summer is that we men are able to wear all kinds of bright colouring (like African prints) in our clothing. This is almost the trend every summer – because we can. Check out the images underneath for inspiration.

Trousers

This summer the trend will mostly be timeless coloured trousers, like grey, black, white and navy. Most trousers are wide, which makes it good and comfortable to wear in hot weather. Also in these trousers we see the summer-pastels.

Lightweight Parkas

These light and comfortable coats are one of the new trends as well. They are a relaxed, cool and light type of jacket – they are not as hot as they look, so you won’t sweat your balls off.

Embellishment

Embellishment is something we see more and more, and probably a lot this summer. It’s a creatice and standout type of style – a bit rebel as well, but we like it. Check the following images for inspiration.
