For His Eyes Only

It's finally here... FIF does menswear! After countless requests and even more countless instance of faulty mens fashion sightings, I decided to give it a go. Inspired by no other than J. Crew, I have the perfect holiday staples for the boys. After all, there's nothing more attractive than a man who knows how to dress! With the help of some tasteful tips, you'll be looking better in no time.
This shirt is a dream come true. This time of year, plaid is perfect for shirts whether it's for dressing up with a sports jacket or dressing down with khakis. This Secret Wash button-down shirt in Emmet tartan from J. Crew is a wise choice of dress for this time of year.

Q: Can men wear accessories?
A: Well, what the hell do you think a watch is!?
 Also from the shelves on menswear haven J. Crew is this fabulous Mougin & Piquard™ for J.Crew Grande Seconde watch in cream. Also available in black, this is indeed an accessory! It's simple, classy, and chic with a masculine twist. Look fine and be on time. Who wouldn't want both?
The ever-so-famous Chukka boot! J. Crew puts their name on the label as "Suede MacAlister boots," but whatever you want to call them, they've got staple written all over them. Unless you're trying to avoid a puddle, you have NO excuse not to own these boots. For a year round wear, I don't see why not you wouldn't be all over these. Oh, and they match everything!
And no man's library is complete without this guide to style and behavior for the modern gentlemen. You'll get tips, tricks, and lots of laughs from this classic literary staple by Glenn O'Brien. Plus, it'll add a lovely color pop to your book case!

Menswear is tricky for me, but simple style with a few chic twists is always perfect. J. Crew, in my opinion, has the best men's selection and everything he could possibly want. The "go to" pair of jeans, weekend tees, button down shirts, work shirts, etc. You name it, they have it. So for all the boys, I hope you found this enjoyable and send your Q&A to for more menswear posts! And remember, this is for his eyes only. Sorry, ladies!
Style up, boys!
xx, ZM
