Hello handmade leather shoes! These shoes for men are SMASHING! I’m in love with the Islay Boot. They’re the cat’s meow! Crockett & Jones have been around for ages. The iconic shoe company was founded in 1879 in Northhampton, England. Daniel Craig (aka James Bond) rocked them in the movie Skyfall. Hey! If they’re good enough for Bond, they’re good enough for you. I so fancy my future hubby rocking these when I meet him. Le Sigh…. Men’s leather shoes UK
Two ‘Great Gatsby’ post in the same day. Obviously I’m obsessed. Hello Mr. Gatsby! These tailored suits designed by Brooks Brothers are AH-mazing! The only thing better than a man in a suit, is a man in a linen suit. Heyyyyyyy…..

Have you ever fancied being your own Designer? You have! Well. You’re in luck. ThreadLab, a fairly new company specializes in DIY Men’s Apparel. The concept is modular clothing. Taking the core and basic components of men’s apparel and making them interchangeable. For example, creating your very own button down shirt by switching out the collar and pockets. You also have the option of dying different parts of the shirt and customizing it to your individual style. The creation is yours and the ideas are endless. It’s quite genius really!
ThreadLab recently launched a funding campaign on kickstater.com. They are currently 7 days left and they’re few thousands dollars shy of their $8,000 goal. If you’re feeling generous this holiday season, this a great way to give and help an amazing company further along their dream. Check out the awesome video below.

With London fashion week taking place last week and the distinct lack of bow-ties that were on show there, we thought that this was the perfect reason to shout the house down about them and take a look at some of the coolest people in history to wear the symmetrical neck tie! You never know, available from companies such as S Buckinghams, we might just convince you to go out there and wear one!
BILL NYE (the Science Guy)
Children throughout the world have grown up learning their basic science from one of the coolest guys on the planet, Bill Nye. Never seen in public without his trademark bow tie, the scientist has gained a new world wide appreciation with the advances of the internet and has a regular fan base throughout many social sites.
Interestingly, Nye is a keen Baseball fan and enjoys experimenting with the physics of the game.
One of the most memorable British Prime Ministers in history, Churchill has left an ever stretching shadow across history, not only for his wartime victories, but too for his bow-tie attire and top hat.
Though you may not think of Mr. Churchill as much of a fashion icon, he has indeed left an everlasting mark on British culture with his famous V sign, glamorization of the Union Jack, postage stamps and use in insurance advertisements.
One of the most famous Broadway singers, actors and musicians ever to hit the stage, Astaire’s career spanned a total of 76 long happy years.
With Astaire still influencing the generations of today, it is to no surprise that in his day, he was also one of the most sought heart throbs in Hollywood and acted alongside many Hollywood beauties including Rita Hayworth, Joan Leslie and Joan Caulfied; picking up a large assortment of awards along the way including two three Golden Globes and one Academy Award.
The largest name in popular music over the last seventy years, Frank Sinatra was rarely seen without a bow tie, but with thirteen Grammy awards, four Golden Globes and three Academy awards to his name, who could blame him?
Before his death in 1998, Ol’ Blue Eyes had over thirty studio albums under his belt with many of them reaching and gold certificates by the RIAA.
The last but not least of these famous bow tie wearers may well indeed be fictional but James Bond may very well be the most recognised bow tie wearer of the lot.
With the new film, Skyfall coming out this Autumn, get ready to brace yourself for some more bow-tie wearing action flashness!
Though Bond’s favourite drink is not actually the martini (he drank more champagne in the novels than vodka martini), we can rest assured that he is indeed our favourite bow tie wearer!

I absolutely adore menswear! I shop the men’s department quite often in search of the perfect sweater. I realize we’re inching our way out of summer and will be heading into Fall soon. However, I had share this amazing Spring/Summer capsule designed by Mike Ruiz for J.Cheikh. The video is hot hot hot and the collection isn’t bad either. Ooo wee! The ever so handsome Oraine Barrett!
Introducing “3 thing for him” on my blog every Wednesday. I’ve put together a list of three things for him for no particular reason. Just a simple list of 3 things I think my darling fell-loves would enjoy!
IPhone Cases: How RAD are these iPhone cases?! I discovered these little tech wonders on Redbubble. Redbubble is an exceptionally cool website that sells the most unusual iPhone cases and t-shirts. One of the draws to the website is the support of local artist. Artists can submit their artwork, design an iphone case, and sell it online via Redbubble. Now, that’s pretty exceptional of you to support a local art!
Hey Friends! In just a few weeks I will be introducing my new Men's blog: MANSETTER! I've been tossing around the idea of doing a Men's styling blog for awhile. I adore Men's clothing and really want to dedicate an entire blog to it. I'm still working out the kinks but I'm thinking it will be more like a "street style" blog, focusing on what I would like my future Snookums to dress like. Men's fashion with a woman's perspective! Oh and some snazzy fashion tips for your fellas as well. Stay tuned……
