    Tweed guide part 1

    History of tweed, number 1:

    It is commonly thought that tweed was first made in Scotland and Ireland as a way for the farmers there to battle the chilly and cold climate that characterizes those parts. This fabric began as a hand-woven fabric, the cloth was rough and thick. The colors were muted and earthy.  It was a working man’s cloth. As far as the name goes, there are a couple of theories. First one claims that this fabric comes from the river Tweed, which is in Scotland, supposedly the cloth was first woven in the Tweed Valley, but other theory claims that the tweed is a twist of the Scottish word tweel.

    How to look interesting, and what colors to wear instead of black part 5

    Black dress shoes and black accessories:

    Black accessories are the most popular items around because they are easy to produce and there is such a huge demand. If you go back in history, an elegant man would never wear dress gloves in this color because it would show that they lack style and taste. Instead, they would wear gray gloves or chamois yellow, red or brown gloves, but never black. For shoes, a black is a great option if you work in a white-collar office environment and it is formal. You can have a few pairs of black shoes you can wear them for evening wear, funerals, business events or any other event where a certain degree of formality is required. Otherwise, you can stick to brown because there are lots more shades.

    Black don’ts, 2: Wearing black daywear suits, pants or jackets

    For day wear, most men assume that a black suit is the first thing they should buy because they think it will look the best on them. Department stores are full of black suits and they are cheap, the fabrics are often times less expensive to produce and re-manufacture. It is so much easier for them to just produce a black suit because there a lot of people who are ignorant who end up buying them. The only thing worse than a black suit is having just a singular black jacket because that has a sports coat character and a sports coat is always more casual. Wearing a black jacket with, for example, a denim pair of pants is probably one of the biggest style mistakes you can make. If you live in a casual environment, throw all the black stuff and get something in different colors especially a sports coat with a slight pattern maybe in brown, green, blue or maybe even in gray.

    Why black is bad even though many people wear it, number 2:

    Black clothes can fade and you can also see deodorant stains which are lighter in color so a t-shirt in this color looks old much more quickly than a gray t-shirt or a white t-shirt. This color is not ideal because it absorbs a lot of energy of light so you can easily overheat, especially during the warmer seasons. Black is also not so easily combined with other shades of gray and especially not with navy. If you have a black jacket and navy pants, it just looks bad. It is too close in color but not quite the same and so it just looks off. The same goes when you wear a black jacket and black pair of pants made of a different material, it just looks wrong. On the other hand, if you had a charcoal suit, you can easily combine it with a navy tie because it works together much better. It gives you a greater range of combination and it is similarly dark. So charcoal is the better black. Whenever you think about getting a black suit or a jacket, go with charcoal and you will look much better.

    10 Tips to better leverage color part two

    Color tip TWO: Orange

    The feelings it evokes are uplifting, fun, playful, creative. And if you don't like red, you don't like pink, guys, orange is a great alternative a very powerful color. Again, one that is only going to make up about 1% of your wardrobe. Now, that being said, you want foundation pieces like a sports jacket being orange? The answer is no. It is too overpowering, it is a bit too much. So where is orange going to work? Well, orange is really 1% of a man's wardrobe, so it is going to be the accessory pieces, it is going to be the pocket squares, it is going to be possibly bringing into accent stitching as I talked about before. I have seen it on boots. The jacket, for example, has got contrast stitching that is orange. That is where I feel orange, that is where the orange really shine. Again, is they are just a little bit of a spice that you add to a larger base color.
