For our wedding, the guys are going to wear tuxes. Robert and I both love a classic tux. He wants to look as much like James Bond as possible…and I’m somehow totally ok with that. But, I can’t help perusing the ties and bowties that are out there and wondering if we shouldn’t customize it somehow. Maybe he could wear a solid black bowtie while the groomsmen wore a black bowtie with white polka dots? What do you guys think?
A sweet little piece of trivia about me: my grandma Susi was a fantastic seamstress. She would make a bowtie for my papa to go with every dress she had. Isn’t that lovely?
Click the ties for the source. I found an incredible website: The Tie Bar and they have a wealth of any sort of tie one might need. They are super affordable.
The Essentials from Mr. Porter got me thinking about what every guy has to have to survive Summer and look fly doing it. Here are my recommendations. Bonus – the best men’s style sites: Valet Mag, Kempt, Gilt Manual, A Continuous Lean, Mr. Porter Journal, oooo
A Summer Blazer
A Straw Hat
A White Tee
Now, if Summer would just get here.

Whenever my beau and I go out, I always suggest that we look like “we’re going to the same place”. This doesn’t necessarily mean that we dress alike. It just means that we are in the same neighborhood. We both look like we’re going to the same party, instead of him looking like he’s going to a frat event and me looking like I’m going to a Mad Men-themed bash. I think Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson do an exceptional job of this. They never match, rarely coordinate but always look very much together (not to mention adorable). Case in point…
This outfit objective can be applied to any situation with anyone and it always makes you and your group (your beau, your friends) look very chic.
