Guys, I Love Black Fleece by Brooks Brothers!

With Brooks Brothers moving up to my neighborhood, I decided to familiarize myself with the brand more than before. While browsing their website I found out about their Black Fleece collection and I am loving their Fall 2011 looks for the guys. I love the different textures and layering pieces, gives it such a chic, old school vibe to it. Not a lot of guys dress like this anymore, so I enjoy seeing it in the Black Fleece look book.

Wearing plaids with suits is a great way of having some fun with your wardrobe and getting a bit more mileage out of all those plaid shirts we all (men & women) buy during the year.

Tall slim guys or guys who are more built on the shoulders than their torso have to go a size up sometimes to compensate for the length they need or just being able to fit the biggest part of their upper body (shoulders); resulting in more sloppy and baggy fits. I have a cure for this problem, well I didn’t come up with it personally haha, I found it via a fashion photographer/expert’s blog, The Sartorialist. The back dart in men’s shirts seems to be the key to this problem all the way from Italy. Since most men’s shirts I’ve seen don’t come with the back darts you can easily make friends with a tailor and get them taken in for a very cheap …
