Taking one from the guys

Menswear is an incredibly beautiful (and sadly underrated) thing. The blazers, the suspenders, bowties, scarves, shoes, vests, cumberbunds, lapels....the list goes on! I've selected a few formal wear looks to highlight as some inspiration. Most looks are mainly black and white.

Model Sean Opry in Yves Saint Laurent. A silver scarf, black velvet jacket, and baggy grey pants.

Actor Liam Aiken at a movie premiere, wearing a red button down, thick argyle sweater vest, and blazer.

Models for Barney's, in gorgeous blazers/jackets. On the left, in a very unique green tie. On the right, in satin-y pants with a stripe up the leg's side.

Model Cole Mohr in Thom Browne S 09, wearing cropped, striped pants, a matching blazer, a khaki blazer, skinny tie, and cropped best.

Assorted models on the runway.

Unknown model at unknown show, wearing a heather grey blazer, tee shirt, and cumberbund.

Unknown model at unknown show, wearing boots, skinny pants, leather gloves, a chain, and loosened tie. Topped off with a satin-y top hat.

Two more models. On left, a velvet ensemble, white gloves, a popped collar, and bowtie. On right, a model wearing a long coat and matching pants.
I hope that this provided a bit of inspiration. I'm currently working on organizing a collection of daily wear (from men) and a couple of different collections from musicians.

I love dark dark grey, especially as a blazer. I am currently looking for one at the moment, but it is a surpsisingly difficult conquest to find one in the right budget and style that I like.

Ooh, I love the 1st and 2nd looks, and the velvet suit at the end. I think in the first one though, the scarf looks more like it's made out of fur than silver material. Good post though! :D
