For many years men have dominated the retail sales floor. But as time went by, woman began taking a serious interest. But are they in the “forefront” of retail nowadays? Are they top contenders? Can they carry their weight and long hours as men?
So here we are again. About time to wind down those squeaky attic stairs, and go through those boxes to find those winter thermals!
This is probably my favorite time of year. And if you’re into fashion, its probably yours too. Hush-Puppies, Cashmere sweaters, Pea Coats, and all those other favorite goodies that you might have stowed away.
Women already know what’s hot this fall. But for the fellus, I’d like to think I can bring you “up to speed” on some of this seasons hookups!
Be on the lookout for:
The Denim Jean Jacket:
Sorry guys, but “over-sized” is over! Make sure if you decide to go this route, the jacket should fit snug across the waist, & high armholes. Don’t be afraid to throw on a skinny tie and a stripped shirt to set it off with style!
Secondly,tweeds, wools, and/ or corduroy: sharpen those eyes for the best prices on these items. Men we cannot be afraid to “CHANGE” step out of your bubble and live a little!
And lastly, a little birdie told me the tote or messenger bag yes! You’ve seen them in the past. But they are back and back with avengence.
“Still afraid”? Well that’s ok. Take one leap at a time. Start small. But start this fall! Show you’re colluges your not afraid to live a little.

Who loves to look good, feel good, and dress well? Everyone I would hope. For a long time men and woman’s closets have been filled with Blazers, Sport Coats, & and often vests just begging to be brought back into fashions forefront.
Well now they’re back! and back with avengence. But exactly what is a Sport Coat?
A Sport Coat: is basically a light-weight jacket that can be worn with jeans or khakis, I’ve even worn with shorts. You just have to have the rite shoe to pull that look off though.
Blazers: On the other hand are a bit dressier, cut a lil different and often times theirs a pair of trousers not to far away that match. aka “Suit-Seperates”
Not recommended by me. But that’s just my personal opinion. Quite often when you buy “suites sold separate” the cloth between the tops and bottoms feel and wear differently. Not quite sure, possibly just my prior experience in the retail industry I’ve taken a disliking to them.
Woman good new for you! Vests and Sport Coats or “Boy-Friend” jackets can now be implemented within your wardrobe.
Just like the boyfriend collard button
down was a few years back. Take advantage of fashion and trends as they are forever evolving.
Did you know that the vest was first introduced by the British Army? Multiple pockets for watches, tools, eye wear etc.
Hope this helps you with some Sport Coat, Blazer & Vest questions you may have.
