Coats, long coats.

Kaki, black or blue marine, there is enough choice, right ? The point is that men need long coats. Not that they really need it, but I would say that it looks more elegant. It’s up to you guys!

Something is sure, these three looks are “killer looks” because they are dark, intense and geometric. Look at the first one : Belstaff knows what “details” means. This kaki coat is quite sophisticated and casual at the same time. We love it! All the finishes are important and give an “officer touch” to the whole. If you want to look elegant and cool as well, choose this direction. The black and – more or less – grunge boots play their role. No doubt about it!

Time for men in black at Costume National. Hmmm… Black is the new black, right ? Can men be sexier than in an all in black look ? I do not think so. My opinion. What is yours, girls ? Anyway. Costume National opted for a very long dark coat. You would think this is too long, but if you have the silhouette for those types of coats, just try it. You would not regret it. Looking a bit mysterious and dangerous… is that not what we call “attractive” ? And scarves, gentlemen, please protect your neck (also because you look even more great with it).

Last but not least, Diesel Black Gold mixes this amazing blue marine silky suit with a casual hooded coat (fur within). Nonchalant, but self-confident. It could seem paradoxical ; it is not. Just understand that we want you to surprise us. Dare the mix “elegance-casualness”!

Winter is coming. Coats are essential. Important : choose the right one for you. Small men with a large morphology avoid the extra length (you would look even smaller and larger). If you are small, but not that large, you can easily wear an ampler coat. Pay attention to the length : not too long, not too short, the middle of the thigh would be good (just a little little bit longer). Others have to accentuate their waist to lengthen their shape : prefer a jacket with a belt.

Always fundamental : coat’s sleeves. Perfect length would be exactly on the pisiform bone (not exactly the end of the wrist).

ImageWear fur or go home.

After “go big or go home”, that means to maximize your coats (because all we care about this season is the outside and not what is under), it is the turn of fur. Yes, I KNOW, this is NOT THAT KIND for the concerning animals, but there is the “faux fur” alternative those for who would feel bad wearing such a coat. On the other hand, we can not deny that it gives a certain presence.

Belstaff prefers to stay more or less classical, but at the same time comfortable in using fur from part to part, especially emphasizing on the hood ; this breaks the classical rules with a casual touch. And we love it ! Just because the leather-fur mix  in such a mysterious dark brown-black color is young and dynamic. And look at these boots ! You want them… yes, I know, I know. Feminine and elegant, but also adventurer, ready to face up to winter 2013-14. Good choice.

Donna Karan. Fur, as well, but something different, isn’t it ? I would first suppose suede… you guess what follows. Donna Karan’s look is really really noble ; almost proud. Come on ! Not THAT arrogant (only the little bit we need to make our worst enemy jealous… pleasurable). Second, the length: assymetric, longer than Belstaff’s coat and graphic, that’s the point. These high-knee boots are simply gorgeous and match exactly the whole look.

Last but not least, those for who prefer to wear fur subtlety, the next option is for you. Maiyet and Versace sublime their looks in adding some fur accessorizes; it is more discrete, but not less elegant. It is only a different way to play with this game that is fashion. Because we are all different, take everything you can from the runways, mix, match… and find your style.
