Summer is not an easy time to be putting together stylish outfits, with the easy choice often being to side with comfort over style to cope with the heat. However, for those events when you wish to smarten up under the Summer sun, men can become stumped and ultimately end up either woefully underdressed or sweltering under layers of fabric. Today, I’ve put together 5 different outfits of varying styles, different levels of complexity and appropriate for a multitude of both smart and smart/casual events. Hopefully by the end, you’ll have a few more looks to use that will keep you looking hot and feeling cool in the warmer months. View Post

I often talk about personal style as being my main goal for this blog and my interpretation of fashion, however I’ve often had people say to me that they really struggle with discovering their own personal style. Although they actively spend a lot of time trying to find their “look”, they never quite manage to find something that they feel comfortable wearing and look good in. After a few questions, we usually ascertain that there is a particular reason that is preventing them from constructing great outfits. With that in mind, I wanted to highlight 5 common reasons you might be finding it difficult to find your personal style. View Post

Hollywood has produced movies that have defined style for generations to come, characters who have embodied the coolest fashions and the most sophisticated dress sense. We have always said to our followers that style inspiration is everywhere and nowhere is this more true than in our favourite films. Many have impacted us so much that our style have actively shifted around them and become more focused on ideas and themes that are used within the movie itself. We’ve put together 5 timelessly stylish movies that offer a wide variety of style inspiration, as well as entertainment, for you to check out next time you have a quiet evening in.

The Aviator

Leo Di Caprio’s rendition of  fictional character Howard Hughes has consistently been hailed as one of the top performances of his career. The high-flying (no pun intended) entrepreneur loves all things trendy and stylish during that era including Hollywood, aviation and leading ladies in his movies. His character deals with his inner torments throughout the movie and his style often reflects this with beautiful eccentricity and tailoring used to hide his inner fears. It’s a great source of inspiration for young men everywhere with plenty of style elements to adopt into your future wardrobes.

After our last article on pilot inspired watches, we got a lot of feedback telling us that, whilst you liked the article, some of the prices of the watches were a little steep, particularly with summer holidays looming. Here at the Male Stylist we believe that mechanical (automatic or hand wound) rather than quartz movements are likely to provide a more stylish look and feel, but they are almost invariably more expensive. So what do you do if you want a nice mechanical watch but don’t have unlimited funds? Simple, you show your style and buy smart, here are our tips to getting the style for less:

Discounts

Almost all high street dealers (even the big chains) can and will give at least 10% and often more, so lose that gentleman’s reserve and ask. Do remember to check for best prices on line and start your request there. Don’t ever forget Goldsmith’s Tesco voucher scheme, at three times (or sometimes even four) your Tesco points value it can be a handy way to a substantial discount. View Post
