BOYZ 2 MEN: Man About Town

Men are sometimes left out when it comes to recommendations on fashion. We love our stylish brothers worldwide which is why ladies and gentlemen, we present to you the BOYZ 2 MEN edition. Our weekend of posts dedicated to men!

MAN about TOWN

From a presidential timepiece to a crisp ironed shirt, to the hems of a tailored suit - fashion often separates the boys from the men. The length and detail on a unique swarve tie, a delicately placed pure silk cravat, the silhouette hug of trouser suspenders to the intimate selection of hand picked cotton socks. Whatever the case may be, attention to detail is what makes a MAN about TOWN. 

Check out our favourite men about town:

ILA TIP: Real men wear pink! Pairing a nice pink blazer with a paisley print tie or cravat gives an everyday outfit a different twist and keeps your look interesting and fresh.

Men with style in pink -
Clockwise from top left: 
Scott Disick, Terrence J, Jamie Foxx, Kanye, Tyson Beckford

If going for a more casual yet formal approach a pink shirt paired with cream fitted suit pants gives that 'I mean business yet I'm ready to walk on the beach in the South of France' look ;)
