Total white looks can be fun! And thats completely true. Lately I find myself wearing suits all the time or leather jackets, so this time I wanted to wear something more fun. So I chose my white Pepe Jeans London Jacket and paired it with white jeans and white T-shirt.
When you hear the word “sweater,” what do you first visualise? A grey, greenish, navy or brown-hued, chunky knit combination - slightly baggy and oversized - automatically surfaces somewhere in your mind. Symbolically, it is warmth for a chilly day condensed down into a single garment that’s cut perfectly for wearing over a button-down shirt or roll-neck. The statement knit, a trend that caught our eye roughly a year ago, obliterates all that. Forget about cable knits; the finer the gauge, the better. With texture taking a back seat, it opens up the gates for colours, patterns, prints and graphics: If you can see it on a tee, bomber, or ski jacket, it’s now on a sweater, too.
Jeans and a T-shirt is the most basic outfit known to man, the most comfortable to wear, and thus one of the hardest to pull off. Because when you're only wearing two pieces of clothing and both of them are the most widely produced menswear items on the planet, finding the perfect versions of each—and wearing them together—requires the ability to know what fits your body best. It also requires you to know what tee goes with what jeans best, and which colors and washes just won't jive. Luckily, I found mine favorite at the moment by Pepe Jeans London.
Another day, another look!
Lately I am so into the mood for biker outfits. This time I chose a classic black pair of trousers and a biker jacket all from Pepe Jeans London. What do you think?
Crew neck jumpers are essentially endless when creating a look tailored to your own style. Additionally, the crew neck for sure, is built for layering. Essentially crowning it as the best jumper for many modern man. Whether it’s autumn or spring, our own recommendation is to layer your knit with a touch of denim, especially if you’re opting for a chain or jacquard knit. If you want to casual-down your outfit for maximum comfort, then don’t be afraid to loose the jacket and switch the shoes.
The aviator jacket is an absolute must-have for autumn and winter. So here at the gentlemans diary, we have decided to create a simple guide on buying, owning and wearing this absolute classic. We love it and so will you. You just need one piece!
Do you need something that’ll inject a dose of proper manliness into your wardrobe? Are you sick of the same old jacket styles season after season? You’ve done the parka, the Harrington and the bomber jacket and you’re out of ideas. Well, we have just the guide for you and it involves a classic favourite of ours; the men’s aviator jacket.
The aviator jacket, also known as the pilot jacket or flight jacket is absolutely timeless and is anything but your standard men’s leather jacket. And although you might be thinking the last man to be seen effortlessly rocking an Aviator jacket was a young Leonardo DiCaprio in the appropriately named Hollywood classic The Aviator, at least you know you’re in good company. But you don’t need to own an aeroplane or even a pilot’s license to look good in this wardrobe essential.
I found the ideal aviator jacket and it is from Pepe Jeans. Guys you should all go and check it out.
Lately, it’s all about leather in my outfits. Not leather imitation, real, quality, leather. That’s the only kind I want.
Recently I could have purchased a leather imitation jacket for myself for pennies… but I chose real leather instead. It looks way better, it feels way better and it will look great for years.
One thing that I looked at when I got my leather jacket was the pockets. I don’t really go for jackets that have a lot of zippers. the fewer the better. Call it a matter of personal preference but I’d rather “load” my outfit with some separate accessories than with some annoying zippers. How do you like my new PEPE JEANS leather jacket?
One of the things I absolutely *LOVE* to do here at Be Stylish is to take a complete outfit, reverse-engineer it, then tell you how to put it back together for yourself.
But classy suits and silk slim ties is not the only thing that’s stylish. A biker look can show just as much style as the most expensive suit IF you wear it in the right circumstances. Plus, you need to BE the kind of guy who would wear something like this.
Today I want to present to you a classic biker look. The black-grey t-shirt and jeans are everything you need. You don’t need much help here, just go for some simple denim.
Boots! if you’re really going for that biker look, the books will make the whole difference. Just imagine Dustin in wearing black leather shoes instead. he wouldn’t make that much of a fashion statement in that case.
Add to the boots a leather belt, a cool haircut and we’re done… or are we?
Remember: it’s all in the details.
Swimsuits are, relative to a lot of menswear, forgiving garments to shop for. You don’t need an absolutely perfect tailored fit, so long as the suit stays up when you dive in (and most have a cord at the waist to help with that).
You are likely to only have one or two swim garments in your wardrobe at a time, so it’s worth finding ones you really like.
Men who are planning on hitting up beach parties and crowd scenes need to be a little pickier. And businessmen who may end up in the spa or hotel pool with co-workers and business partners have their own special concerns. Ask yourself:
Are you trying to impress anyone? If not, stop worrying. Wear whatever is comfortable and works for you.
Are you trying to look professional? Conservative (but not exaggerated) length, conventional styles (trunks or square-cuts), and dark, solid colors or restrained stripes are for you. Navy blue with brass-colored grommets and white rope ties are always safe.
Do you want to look as good as you can? If so, you’ll need a cut that flatters your body type (see below), and a color and pattern that’s eye-catching without being ridiculous. Think stripes, plaids, bright solids, or some not-too-crazy floral patterning. Larger men should avoid close-cut styles like board shorts, despite them being in fashion.
These questions will affect the color, patterning, and cut you decide to go with. My choice is this Pepe Jeans swimsuit and shirt that really flatters my body and express my personality.
Summer is the most carefree time of the year. After a long winter, I find myself craving the warmth of the summer sun and all the activities that come along with it. Here are a few reasons why you may be craving the summer season just like me.
- Summer concerts: Whether you love country, rock, pop, or rap, you could not be more excited for your summer music venue to open it's door for summer. These nights become the ones you'll never forget.
- County Fairs : Whether you live in a small country town or in a big city, the travel to any local fair over the summer is worth it.
- Driving with the windows down : There's not a better feeling in the world than driving with the windows down during the summer and blaring your favorite music for all to hear.
- Beach days : Sometimes you need to take a break from all the chaos that summer brings and just have a relaxing beach day with your friends. Whether you're on a lake or an ocean, nothing beats relaxing at the beach on a hot summer day.
- Boating : Boating with family and friends during the summer months is how some of the best summer memories are made. Tubing and water skiing are just added bonuses to the fun of boating.
- Hiking with family and friends is an experience all its own but nothing beats the rewarding view you get at the top.
- Ice cream dates : You know that summer is right around the corner when your favorite ice cream shop opens for business in early spring. Over the summer you are guaranteed to always see someone you know when you go to get ice cream at your favorite local spot.
- Old friends : Overall, the best summer memories are made when you meet up with your old high school friends and catch up like nothing has changed.
If there’s one thing you want to do at the end of the day, it’s wiggle out of your jeans and throw on a pair of sweatpants. But what if you bought such comfortable jeans that you didn’t even need—or want—to change out of them?
It’s totally possible, which is why I thought that you would appreciate showing you the comfiest pair of jeans that I own by Pepe Jeans. I was spending last week in Monemvasia, when I tried on those jeans for the first time. From that moment that pair of jeans become my on-the-go jeans. They fitted so well and I felt completely free to move.
Below you can find some tips and simple rules to choose your own comfy pair of jeans:
- They should have some stretch to them. Often, that means there is some spandex mixed into the fabric. With stretch, you can move how you want without feeling stiff (exactly how traditional denim can be).
- They should feel broken in by the time you slide them in. None of this you can’t breathe in them/they hardly move with you/you’re hoping a few washes will fix them. Nope, they have to be jeans that you want to walk out of the fitting room wearing.
Spring is around the corner! And we have to be well prepared for the new season. One of my latest crushes is this Pepe jeans bomber jacket! A bomber jacket is the perfect men’s spring jacket as it works just as well for both day and night. Just like many other men’s wardrobe staples, the origins of this garment can be found in the 20th century’s military wear. The MA-1 flight jacket was designed for the US Air Force in the 50s and was worn by US pilots up until the Golf war.Today, bomber jackets come in different fabrics. The most common ones are nylon, suede and leather. If you already own a black bomber jacket, it may be time to pick a whiter tone.
Style and Fit
With bomber jackets, you can keep it casual or dress it up. Match your jacket with a pair of trousers, a pair of trainers and a white shirt to get a trendy and sharp look.
When choosing a bomber jacket, you should pay special attention to the shoulders. It’s the most important aspect for a perfect fit.
- The jacket seams should lie directly on the corner of your shoulder
- You should be capable of lifting your arms without struggle
- Regarding the length, the jacket should hit the top of your hips.
- Bomber jackets are usually slim fitted, yet you should be able to zip it up easily
With roots in the military (created for WWI bombing pilots, hence the name) and the masculine shape, to back up its historically stylish and practical features — chiefly comfort, warmth, and ease of movement — the bomber jacket is a traditional all-year round essential in menswear. Widely considered the jacket of the season, the bomber comes in a wide variety of versatile textures and styling options, easily suiting all tastes and seasonal conditions, from lightweight waxed cotton for spring/summer to exceptionally warm, fully lined leather or suede classics, that can handle the harshest winters thrown their way. However despite all its advances and easy styling options, getting the fit of a bomber jacket right can be a tricky thing to get right, especially with its unconventional shape. I found mine from Pepe Jeans Loncon and I really love it.
Overall Fit of Bomber Jacket
The fit of any piece of outerwear, bomber included, is really important, as it’s the piece that can make or break an outfit. Needing enough space to layer over a range of outfits, while being close enough keep you warm and, well, not look like a sack – a bomber’s fit is just as important as any other piece of clothing. Whether you’re going for a classic bomber jacket shape or a longline design, it’s important that you’re working with a jacket that looks its best and complements your body type.
It’s universally agreed that the most crucial aspect to a perfectly fitted jacket lies first and foremost in the shoulders. If they don’t naturally fit then the jacket is a loss, as even if you’re going for an oversized style, baggy shoulders is never a good look. In this case, the fit is the same as any other jacket and it’s important that it carefully frames your shoulders, giving you a smooth, clean look. To double check that your jacket is perfectly fitted around your shoulders make sure you’re following these basic rules.
Bomber jackets tend to be a little less streamlined than conventional jackets, with the traditional, durable style focusing on a more statement, padded look. However this ‘bulkier’ look is generally created by the materials used, with the leather outing and inner lining causing a heavier finish, and on the whole, you want to go for a fairly fitted look so you don’t run the risk of looking swamped. Because of the cropped design of the jacket, you want to create a flattering V-shape when you have it zipped up, with the padded edge fitting closely around your torso. The easiest way to tell if your jacket fits properly in the waist is to try it on and see how much excess material hangs on each side and underneath your arms. Anything sticking out more than an inch on either side should be considered as being too bulky so you should opt for a smaller size. Chest wise, it should fit comfortably slim, with little to no added weight. You want something that will be form fitting whether zipped up or left open. Length wise, unless you’re going for a modern long line design your bomber jacket should land on the top of your trousers, or just above, in order to elongate the appearance of both your torso and legs in a subtle way.
One of the distinctive features of a flight jacket is the knitted collar that frames the neck, contrasting to the chunkier look of the jacket itself. Originally added in to protect the wearer from the high altitude winds, it’s now a distinctive part of the look, so it’s important that it fits correctly. The collar generally extends up a little, giving a clean, streamlined look that encompasses the neck. Don’t go for a design that goes too high up the neck as you want to gain a flattering, complementary look, but not get a roll neck finish.
If you’re going for a more striking, padded design made from a thick material and an inner lining, your sleeves are generally going to be a little bulkier to match with the rest of the jacket. However, if you’re going for a more slim fit nylon design it’s important to make sure your sleeves are fitted and have the right amount of stretch. Bomber jacket sleeves have a unique design, with each one ending in a knitted cuff that fits snugly around your wrist. Each sleeve should end on or just above your wrist bone, with conventional designs showing a clean contrast in size between the main part of the sleeves and the cuff.
Summer is officially here!
Lately I am in the mood to add some color in my wardrobe, and I find myself searching street styles with bright colored clothes. I find them so appropriate for summer and so posh.
Combining bright colors is quiet tricky though and you will have to be very careful especially in the accessories that you will go for. Try to choose neutral colors for your shoes and your sunglasses, otherwise you will end looking funny.
Finally be careful and pick maximum 2 bright colors to come up with this look. Adding more colors is risky.
Summertime is all about having fun, why don't we all start having more fun with our clothes too?
