Men Of Style: As Seen in Flair Magazine

Hi Everyone!
Well it's Monday again which means it is the start of another week! No matter what happened last week, Monday always seems like a do-over,  to try and do it better than we did last week and for that I'm pumped! (no it has nothing to do with the fact that I had a strong coffee this morning! ;)

Monday also signals that it is time for another exciting issue of Flair Magazine, today we featured some stylish men who happen to be some of my personal favourites who continue to set the bar for style.

Style inspiration?
I don't really have a particular magazine, designer, or celebrity that I follow for style inspiration. I'd say it's more things that happen to catch my eye. It could be an ad, people I see on the street, or even Instagram. There are lots of men there with some serious style.

Favourite label: 
My favourite brand would be Banana Republic. They strike the right balance of classic yet modern clothing. I'm not by any means a brand-only type of guy as I often go thrifting. Crazy what people throw away sometimes.

Where does one find style or become stylish?
For the man just starting to get into style, I'd say finding your right fit is absolutely essential. Next would be investing in pillar pieces that you can build a wardrobe around. Start small and work your way up. 

Why do you think it's important for men to develop a signature style?
Finding your own unique style is important for every man, as I'm a big believer in if you look great, you'll feel great, and do awesome.

Style inspiration
Inspired by anything I see. That 's where I get colour inspiration or different style ideas. I also get inspired runway looks. 

Favourite label:
I love anything Alexander Wang. He's very minimalistic. A new favourite for me is Katie Early, it's pretty perfect. 

How does one find style or becomes stylish?
If you want to be stylish you have to step out of the box. Play with different layers, colours and fits. When in doubt ask a woman, that's who we're trying to impress. 

Why do you think it's important for men to develop a signature style?
It's important to have a signature style because your style and clothes represent who you are.

Style Inspiration 
I draw inspiration from advertisements, prints, art, paintings, make-up artists, sceneries ... basically anything that moves me to express myself tastefully through my presentations.
I'm really inspired by female styles and even a little envious of them because their styles are so versatile! 

Favourite label:
I really love anything of quality that is on sale. What I have in my closet and drawers are TM Lewin, The Tie Bar, Banana Republic and Aldo. 

How does one find style or become stylish?
Get to know yourself, and learn what works for you. Then, have fun with it by exploring other options or adding other items to your presentation. Most important to me are the details and subtleties, added to that maintenance and grooming. As a man, it is important to develop a signature style because it defines who we are and identifies how we are, especially our personality. It also provides a preface as to how we feel about ourselves.

One half of the His and Hers Blog duo :His and Hers Fashions
Style inspiration?
I think I had always been into fashion and style and from a young age I read a lot of magazines, blogs, watched TV, but I can find inspiration from anywhere. 

Favourite label:
Ovadia & Sons, Thom Browne, H&M, Ralph Lauren, J. Crew, Zara. 

How does one find style or become stylish?
I don't think someone just becomes stylish; it's about finding your style and growing into it - although I do recommend that the ordinary man become more open-minded with his fashion. 

Why do you think it's important for men to develop a signature style?
I think every guy out there needs their fashion identity. It's the first thing people look at when they meet you. Always make a good first impression and when you find that identity, stick with it and you should be more fashionable than before.
