For The Guys: A Few New Luxury Favorites

This one is for the guys and for those who wonder what they may need.  Ok... what they may want.  There are a few luxury pieces I can't seem to get out of my mind, some more attainable than others.  I hope you enjoy these findings, on your Pinterest boards if not in your actual closet.

First up is a preview of Spring- this awesome pair of slim fitting corduroy shorts from Slowear.  Priced at $295 on Mr. Porter, these aren't cheap but certainly aren't outrageous.  The pink color and corduroy texture both are very preppy, also modern.  This is a great length for guys- a few inches above the knee without being too short.  I love the stone colored shirt with this, juxtaposing a solid neutral with this loud short.  

Next is the perfect scent- Green Irish Tweed.  I've sung the praises of my favorite cologne brand Creed many times and will continue to do so.  No collection of fragrances has ever been so memorable or easily recognizable in my experience.  This particular scent has base notes of sandalwood, topped off with French verbena and Florentine iris.  Be sure to check this out for yourself or as a gift at Creed's online site or locally at Nordstrom in Nashville for $315.  

Alright, how much fun is this shoe?  It's available on pre-order from Saks for $895.  Gucci took a risk with this one, a studded leather cute-yet-tough shoe.  I'm a big fan of it, although I will be the first to admit there's a time and a place for this shoe- not an everyday look.  Would be great with jeans or shorts, slacks not so much unless they were very structured/slim/tailored and ankle length.

Something a bit more classic- this leather jacket by Rag & Bone.  Available at ssense for $1,395, this green color is a great masculine option to throw on with almost anything.  Quilted panels add great detail and the updated bomber style with slimmer lines helps to really stretch this piece from casual to a bit more dressy if desired.

  1. I like the color, the material, the design, there's nothing wrong about this item. It is exactly what mens leather jackets I am expecting. Cwmalls.com is really good to shop leather products, I will go again.
