  • JX PREMIUM BIKER JACKET R1 199.95, JX PREMIUM EXCLUSIVE TO EDGARS.

AN ICON IN EVERY WAY

The biker jacket is an iconic style that instantly conjures images of Hollywood icons such as James Dean and Marlon Brando. Traditionally made from leather, there’s no reason the biker jacket can’t adapt to other aesthetics.

The JX Premium biker is a great lightweight cotton alternative to leather for our moderate winters. Wear it over a button-down shirt and skinny jeans for a classic look that oozes effortless cool. Smarten up with Chelsea boots and a tie or dress down with sneakers. It’s a classic look that every man can pull off.

THE VELVET BOMBER

Velvet is having a moment and is making a comeback as this season’s answer to texture. The former military piece has become a menswear staple in every way possible and gets reworked in velvet. Before you sign up, let’s look at what exactly it is about velvet that is having a reawakening.

Casual velvet? Yes, sir. Velvet isn’t meant for the red carpet anymore. That’s great news, meaning you get to be a little more relaxed when wearing it – and it’s easy to do so. Slim jeans and plain tees is an easy outfit, made super sportsluxe with this contrast leather collared velvet bomber jacket from Diesel’s AW17 collection.

Fashion: INTRODUCING THE LEVI’S® 501® SKINNY

  • INTRODUCING THE LEVI’S® 501® SKINNY

MODERN STYLE WITH A COVETED VINTAGE LOOK

501® jeans are where it all begun, they were the first of their kind and, just like you, they’ve evolved with the times. With skinny jeans becoming a wardrobe staple, Levi’s® decided to introduce an updated version of the iconic jeans; the 501® skinny.

The newest member comes with a few style differences from its predecessors: the men’s fit sits comfortably below the waist and features the skinny leg design to round out every denim lover’s wardrobe.

“We are very careful when we touch the 501®, and we do it with a lot of respect,” explains Jonathan Cheung, the Head of Design at Levi’s® Brand. “People have been altering their vintage 501® jeans for a snug, skinnier fit for years, so we followed that as inspiration and created a vintage-looking 501® Skinny.”

Available in non-stretch, low stretch and a range of washes for both men and women, the 501® Skinny joins the 501® Family, alongside the 501® Original and the 501®CT.

Fashion: THE MID-BLUE SUIT: SIGNATURE AT EDGARS

  • SLIM FIT JACKET R1099.95, SHIRT R249.95, TIE R149.95, SLIM FIT PANTS R449.95 AND BROGUE SHOES R799.00, ALL SIGNATURE AT EDGARS

START WITH MID BLUE

If you’re venturing into the suit terrain for the first time consider starting with one in a mid blue. It’s not as formal as black and transitions easily from day to night. Dressed up or down it’s the go-to suit for any occasion.

But even the world’s most expensive suits look bad if they don’t fit well. Unless you’re born with the genes of a suit model, the very first thing you should do is have your suit properly fitted by a tailor. For a small outlay you’ll look like a million bucks.

REAL MEN WEAR PINK.

Merely mentioning pastels has most men scuttling nervously back to their man-caves. But whether you wish to admit it or not – It’s quite likely your wardrobe already has a rosy hue. That shirt you wear with your navy blue suit and call “salmon”? It’s pink. Own it. That pair of green boxers you haul out for special “occasions”? It’s pistachio dude by any fashionista’s decree.

Despite appearing wishy-washy pastels are easy to slot into what you already wear. They work well with the so-called “masculine” colours – like grey, khaki and navy – you’re already wearing every day. Pick hues that suit your skin tone and work with the rest of your outfit – you’ll be surprised how good you look.

DOUBLE YOUR STYLE!

The choice between a single and double-breasted jacket is a matter of personal taste. While the vast majority of men choose single breasted it would be sartorially unwise to underestimate the charm of a double-breasted blazer. And right now international trends indicate that the double-breasted blazer is making an obvious comeback.

Being that it is a less common choice, a double-breasted blazer will instantly set you apart from your peers and make a confident statement. Just what you want when you’re after that big account.

STYLE TIP: Unless you are a commodore, skip the brass buttons on a navy blazer.
