Oh yes denims like scotch will never cease to reach a halt, so here we have compiled 3-way looks for the gentlemen with suave to take a hint on how to look awesome without looking like they’ve tried too hard.

Look 1 : Simple Day-wear

Well gents this look is plain simple and breezy, it’s for those days out with friends during the day. Get a short sleeved denim shirt (fold the sleeves) and wear a WHITE tshirt or vests, pair them with a different shade of denims and leather sailor shoes. You’re good for the day.

Look 2 : Formal Work Wear

Yet again get yourself some luxurious thick cotton checked shirts, pair them with earthy coloured skinny denims, break the look with brown leather shoes and belt, finish the look with a different low-key (grey specifically) blazer then it’s off to work and drop the blazer for the night out after work.

Look 3 : Street Suave

Looking suave is easy, really, this punk rock and Texas (cowboy) look hails from a long while ago, find yourself some washed-out denim shirts, pair them with skinny denim pants, put your plush brown shoes on and unbutton that shirt to shed some skin, an accessory for your neck like a rosary (whether Christian or not) is essential. Rock a punk belt then you’re game.

Men + Style = Misconception

Style is not dressing up

Excuses, we all have them.
And when it comes to men and style we’ve heard it all, but one that deserves a special mention is the old ‘I don’t like dressing up’

Many men have a misconception that looking good means wearing a suit and tie every single day and this couldn’t be further from the truth.

A very important aspect of style is looking good for every occasion. So even if you’re never have to wear a suit (and should) dress with style, from your work attire to your relaxed weekends.

Look For The Day: Suits And Ties

Whatever you call it; dandy, metrosexual, boulevardier, or retrosexual, it all comes down to how you take care of yourself. Don’t be afraid to look good. You are the product of a billion-process evolutionary success: act like it.

Light Packing For The Durban July Weekend

Posted in Bags, Burberry, Celebrities, Fashion, Fashion Icons, Fashion Quotes, grooming, Haute, lifestyle, Louis Vuitton, mensfashion, mensstyle, menswear, Music, Now We Know, Reads, Shoes, Street Suave, Street Wear, Style, Suave, Trends, Uncategorized, Winter, winter, wintertrends on June 12, 2013 by touchofsuave

So Durban July is upon us once again and the thing with it that can be so strenuous is one, PACKING, a gentleman’s worst nightmare. Packing light so that everything will fit into a carry-on beach bag is a skill not everybody can get the hang of because people tend to over pack. But travelling light is a no-brainer. Yes, it can be done, especially when it’s a beach trip and especially being a man – it spares you from the pressure that makes most women bring their entire wardrobe.

Here’s how you can pack lightly without breaking a sweat…

First, consider the weight and size of the bag itself. Leave behind bag with wheels because they weigh extra pounds more. Just opt for the light one which has enough pockets and compartments to help keep you organized.

You need not pack that much. Determine what and how much stuff you really need to take with you to the beach. Think about what you’ll be doing and needing on your trip day by day. A helpful way is to make a list of the things you would like to bring. Ask yourself if you really will use each item.  As you write what you really need, you will realize what you don’t need. Then try to strip away those that are not necessary. This ensures that nothing essential is overlooked and nothing unnecessary is packed.


A beach trip needs far less clothes than what is in your list.  It’s all about choosing the right clothing pieces to fit the needs of your trip. Choose the right clothes that correspond to the weather. Pack enough clothing to stay cool. The lighter clothing you have, the better. Of course, get rid of the pants and just wear shorts and take more short-sleeve or sleeveless tops. Avoid clothing that weighs more and choose the quick-drying one.

For footwear, leave those bulky shoes at home and bring slippers or sandals. Waterproof, plastic or rubber ones are best. They are lighter and less bulky.

Also, don’t forget to pack other essentials needed for your beach vacation. When heading out into the sunshine, give your skin extra protection by using sunscreen; and sunglasses and hats to protect your face from harmful rays. You can’t afford to leave these items
