The tailored khaki (slim fit) - chino black

Slim slacks

As the sunny glint of the summer days wane, we, the masculine portion of the human species must prepare for colder weather, with storm, sleet and snow all realistic enemies we must adjust to combat. Well, as long as you’re not schmucking it up on the west coast like your humble writer is… Lack of understanding on the topic of seasonal change and complete confusion when it comes to shifts in weather. That’s the SoCal way.

If however you exist somewhere along the face of the country where actual weather exists the fall and winter months dictate that you swap up your wardrobe to make sure that you keep yourself from losing any limbs to frostbite or any other horrific cold-fueled threats. It’s not a question how you preserve your limbs from the demented influence of Jack Frost, but truly it is how to do it in a fashionable way! Here’s a rundown on what this year’s fashion world has planned for us, the less-than-fair sex for the cold months. Continue reading ‘Men’s Fall Fashion Trends 2014′

Radiomir 8 Days GMT Oro Rosso

Panerai Radiomir 8 Days Gmt Red Gold Pam 395

Panerai Radiomir 8 Days Gmt Red Gold Pam 395

A special edition Radiomir (from 2013), the Radiomir 8 Days GMT Oro Rosso is an exquisite watch for a number of reasons. The watch itself is a modern yet classical interpretation of one of Panerai’s greatest models, the Radiomir. Just a few of the classical aspects of this watch include a cushion case of especially polished red gold (an alloy which provides a higher percentage of copper than yellow or pink gold and also contains platinum) which encloses a trademark dial inspired by Panerai’s storied history. The dial itself is modeled after a rare collector’s piece from sometime in the late 1930’s and is presented in a minimalist fashion with simplistic and elegant hour and dot markers.   Continue reading ‘Radiomir 8 Days GMT Oro Rosso’
