I’m alive! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I know have been missing in action and I apologize for that. I’ll be getting back on a routine of doing what I love, blogging.

Now let’s get to the topic of conversation, New York Fashion Week: Men’s. Now I won’t be giving you exclusives or behind the scenes scoops, because I’m still a communications intern trying to make it into the world of public relations. I’m going to give you some background information on how it came to be.

For those of you who don’t know, this is the inaugural year for NYFWM. The showcase which launched yesterday, July 13th will run until July 16th. American menswear brands such as Calvin Klein Collection (which previously debuted it’s collection in Milan), Public School, Rag & Bones, and Polo Ralph Lauren will be presenting their Spring/Summer 2015 collection. New York Fashion Week Live has the entire schedule with day and time your favorite brand will premiere it’s collection.

So many of you might be wondering, why did it take so long for men to have their own fashion week? According to Jennie Matthew from Business Insider, “Menswear has seen phenomenal growth in the last six years. Sartorial tastes are more developed than a generation ago.”

In the U.S. alone, online men’s clothing sales have made $9.6 billion. With this growth in sales, The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), saw the potential in launching NYFWM. The showcase will follow the format of NYFW and the men’s fashion weeks of Milan, London, and Paris by taking place twice a year.

It’s great that American menswear is finally getting the platform it deserves. I’ll be looking at the collections as they are premiere and share my favorites with you.

Thank you to my readers for checking up on my blog. Thanks to analytics I know you care. I’ll be back to posting regularly.

Stay classy, mi amigos!

 

DKNY Goes To The Ball Game

From season to season DKNY has done a great job of combining street wear and formalwear. This Spring 2015, we see the DKNY men collection combine baseball button up shirts with suits and slacks. After looking at pictures of the collection’s London premiere last year, I knew that I had to buy one of the baseball shirts.

DKNY Baseball Shirt-$95

 

I own several pieces from DKNY, but this has to be my favorite piece. The one thing I like about this piece is that you can dress it up or dress it down. Pair it with your favorite denim and Chucks, like I did, or wear a nice pair of chinos and add a blazer over it.

This is a standout piece in the Spring collection, so I suggest visiting DKNY and buying one before they are gone.

Tell me what you think about the DKNY baseball shirt and the rest of the DKNY men SS15 collection in the comments below.

#TBT

Since it is Thursday, I’ll share my first throwback Thursday of one of my favorite looks.

Long Sleeve Button Up- DKNY, $69.50

Dress Pants- Express, $69.50

Tie and Tie Bar- The Tie Bar, $15 each

Watch-DKNY

Dress Shoes- Tods

I enjoy dress ing up and looking sharp, at the moment I don’t have anywhere to really dress this way and also it’s been HOT! I recommend a look like this for wear to work or a night out on the town.

Accessories are important, invest in a nice watch and a tie bar. If you’re looking for a watch, I suggest looking on Amazon, I have been able to find good deals on there. The Tie Bar is the place to go for buying ties and tie bars, both start out at $15 and up, you can’t beat that price! The Tie Bar has been featured on GQ many times, so you know it’s good.

Hope my TBT gives you some ideas on what to wear for the weekend!
