Plaid Skirts

The old phrase ‘Mad about Plaid’ seems to sum up the fashion forecast for this upcoming season. It seems plaid skirts are here to stay. In fact, it is quite interesting to observe how plaid hovers lightly over emerging trends season after season without losing its identity. What is it about this perennial style that gives it such resilience? Most women chalk it up to its versatility. Plaid skirts can be dressed either up or down, making them a valuable wardrobe staple.

Plaid is a classic pattern with a wide scope for incessant variations. While hip clubbers choose to accessorize dark-hued plaid skirts with studded belts or lace-up stilettos, the preppy chick prefers to team flirty, pleated plaid skirts-often in vibrant combinations with sneakers or basic pumps, a pair of matching tights and perhaps a brightly colored Polo shirt. These patterned pieces call out for the season’s winning hues-teal, purple, pink, electric blue, orange and moss green-most often mixed with olive or brown, although the classic red and black plaid is still a tried and true favorite with both the older and the sporty set.

The chic fashionista, on the other hand, usually goes in for a knee-length slim or A-line plaid skirt in traditional Burberry checks such as camel, black and cranberry, and generally combines it with a slim camel-hued coat. Since it was registered as a trademark back in 1920, the Burberry check has come to symbolize everything that is great about British and American fashion, and has achieved a rare position in the fashion industry. In a paradox of sorts, the aristocracy view Burberry plaid as an emblem of elegant, establishment dressing, yet it is equally coveted by young, hip girls as a symbol of having ‘arrived’.

Men’s Leather Wallet a Perfect Gift to Behold

Men are also vain when it comes to their accessories. Although discreetly, they also long to own things that are truly valuable and authentic. Just like women, men also have their own unique sense of fashion. If you are thinking of a special gift to give to a man, a leather wallet will do. It is simple, fashionable and comes in style. Moreover, it also comes with high quality grade material of leather that you can be assured it will last for a long time.

Because men have a very active lifestyle, a wallet made of leather is a perfect gift for them. You can find different kinds of leather-made wallets almost from any novelty stores or department stores. Men’s leather wallet is also available in different price which ranges from the cheapest to the most expensive. Branded wallets are quite expensive but if you are smart enough, you could find as nice and of good quality wallet as the branded ones at a cheaper price.

One way to look for the best buy is to wait for sales. Buying from sales gives you a good bargain for a men’s leather wallet. Although the price comes a lot cheaper at a discounted price you can still get the good quality item as it would have been sold at a mark up price.

I was able to give my brother an Armani men’s leather wallet as a birthday gift. He was delighted to see it and said it is quite expensive to buy him a branded wallet. What he does not know, I bought it from an online sale where I get to buy it at $30 less! It was indeed a wise buy for me.

Now my friends long to give a leather-made wallet as gift for their fathers or brothers too. They like the one I bought for my brother which comes with a removable small chain that he could clip it on his belt or bag. It is made from genuine leather so it could stand against any weather condition even if he has to take it with him on camping trips. It looks halfway from being casual to business-like so it perfectly suits for any occasion. Men’s leather wallet is indeed a special gift that is perfect for a man who lives an active lifestyle. Made from a durable material, it is a gift that is meant to last a lifetime.

A New Trend For Men

During the First World War, the trench coat was developed as an alternative to the heavy serge greatcoats worn by British and French soldiers. Such designers as Burberry submitted the first ideas for these coats that repelled water while allowing the wearer freedom of movement, which soldiers had a serious need for while fighting in the trenches. Today the trench coat seems to be making quite the fashion statement for both men and women who appreciate what Thomas Burberry designed as the army officer’s new raincoat. The trench coat offers something for every style of dress, such as heavy metal, Goth fashion, or the classic and professional business look most commonly seen on men. Not only does the trench coat make a fashion statement but also offers rich history, comfort and warmth.

The full-length style of the trench coat offers warmth and protection to the entire length of the body, which for most months out of the year is very useful to the businessman in the windy city. The coat also protects a man’s trousers from becoming wet during a rainstorm, which is helpful for the businessman traveling to work. Even fictional characters such as Dick Tracy, The Phantom, The Crow, Neo from The Matrix, and much more bring this fashionable item to life on the big screen and have actually managed to make this item quite iconic. Seeing such articles of clothing worn on today’s stars can always prompt a fashion buzz for people to take a trend and run with it. Although the average Joe cannot usually afford what they see worn on the stars like today’s Burberry trench coat which can run you well over a thousand dollars, there will always be a more affordable option to go with. A man’s coat is a very important thing that should be individualized and should still have their own personal touch and likings rather than a simple copy of the latest designer fashion worn by a celebrity.

The traditional trench coat is made out of a material called gabardine, which dates back to the 1870’s and is virtually crease-proof, well-ventilated, and resistant to the elements. They are typically double-breasted with ten buttons and usually made in tan, khaki, beige, or black. They often have cuff straps along the sleeves, shoulder straps, and a belt. More of the modern trench coats seen today may offer zipper pockets on the inside and outside of the coat, warm removable liners and can be printed or come in brighter colors to make more of a bold statement. So now the question is, will today’s man be able to keep up a long known tradition while evolving it into today’s modern fashions or will it simply remain a bit of history?
