10 REASONS WHY CHOOSIN’ THE RIGHT COAT IS AS IMPORTANT AS CHOOSING THE RIGHT BOYFRIEND

November 15, 2016

All the men in the world won’t all pick the same coat just like you won’t pick the same ( kinda) boyfriend. Some people like long heavy wool coats and others, light-weight and easy-to-carry coats, just as some would prefer Tom Hardy rather than Leonardo DiCaprio.

You think you might as well get a cheap one, what’s the difference right? Do you want a cheap boyfriend too? Picking out a coat is just like choosing your boyfriend, if it won’t affect you for your whole life at least will affect you for 3 month, more or less.

HOW TO BUILD A LIFESTYLE AND WARDROBE — MY ENTIRE UNIQLO MEN’S COLLECTION —

October 29, 2016

Recently I had a friend in his 30s came to me for wardrobe advise. He’s one of these gents who dress expensive but does not lose bit fun in their outfits, always buy smart casual and classic pieces when shopping for their clothes. Like he’d dare to try some fresh trends and colours such as floral, pastel, pink, bright maroon and mustard; but he’s still very much into polo and cable knit kinda person. I recommended him a pair of Uniqlo camel trousers, he looks at me confused: “Really? looks plain and boring”.

We need to understand, for brands like Uniqlo Australia, it is not a designer brand would bring you runway statement pieces, but it is the brand helps you to pull off runway statement pieces and build up a lifestyle, it is a brand about low-profile, back-to-basics entertaining. Every garment mirrors the way a minimalist feels a great life should be: comfortable, slow, sensitive and engaging.

WHAT SUITS SHOULD I BUY DURING SUMMER?

September 21, 2016

It is essential that a stylish gentleman looks sharp when he’s in his double breasted wool coat as his summer suit (without sweating). It is undeniable that linen suits are the best material when selecting your summer suits. Linen fibre is 30% stronger than cotton and is extremely breathable compared other materials. So when it’s time to replace your 10-year-old cotton garments, now you know that you have your double lasting linen in the long run!  As 2016’s summer is approaching, Calibre Australia has released their new Spring/Summer collection pieces including this Ecru Linen Blazer in a warm stone colour. Compared to Calibre’s previous seasons, the blazers in this season have a more fitted cut for me as the sleeves and waistline are slimmer in size. Normally, I would wear a size 38 but due to the nature of linen, I have selected the Ecru blazer in size 36 for a tighter fit.
