men, the summer wardrobe is a hard thing to get right. The balance
between keeping cool on the inside and out is like walking a tightrope
where the slightest breeze is likely to throw you off balance.
despite the difficulties, the integral components of a successful
summer wardrobe remain the same: eye-catching, well-ventilated attire
and a pair of awesome sunnies.
with that thought in mind, we invited Adam from
TheMaleStylist.com to share his thoughts on fashion and assembling the
perfect seasonal outfit.
for agreeing to today�s interview! Can you tell our readers a little
bit about yourself and your blog The Male Stylist?
a fashion and grooming enthusiast, originally from Liverpool but I’ve
been living in London for the past 5 years and now work in digital and
Male Stylist is essentially a platform to help men of all ages
discover and enhance their personal style through grooming advice,
product reviews and outfit inspiration. Over the past two years it’s
grown from strength to strength, though I would never have dared to
imagine that it would become as big as it has already.
did you get into blogging, and into fashion in general?
always been very aware of how I present myself and I think that
naturally led to me being interested in fashion. The blog was an
extension of this passion as a way of sharing my experiences, talking
about individuals who inspire my style and generally helping to
connect people of a similar mindset.
would you describe your fashion �look�?
always defined my style as that of an �aspiring gentleman�. I try to
create modern twists on classic outfits from earlier eras (like the
1950s/60s) with a lot of focus going into tailoring and smarter casual
you have a favourite summer outfit?
have a few, though my favourite is a combination of navy polo shirt
and chinos, with a light tan belt and boat shoes. It’s a great outfit
inspired by that classic Italian/Mediterranean style that you often
see walking through somewhere like Milan. It’s also very versatile and
works equally well for both evening dinner parties as well as
afternoons wandering through town.
when it comes to sunglasses, do you have a signature style or is it
more a case of matching the style to that day�s outfit?
have a few pairs that I tend to match with different outfits depending
on the accessories I wear (watch, belt, shoes) as well as the overall
colour of the outfit. In general, I tend to favour more traditional
styles such as Wayfarers, Clubmasters etc.
do you look for in a pair of good sunglasses?
think comfort is the probably the main factor, once I’ve found a style
I like. You don’t want anything that’s going to rub or feel heavy when
being worn all day. I also like a good splash of colour � whether it’s
tortoise, navy or brown � as this really helps you stand out from the
are your favourite menswear trends for Spring/Summer 2016?
feel like the industry is moving towards slightly smarter looks with
many high street retailers placing a great deal of investment into
tailoring. Considering the styles that I like and the outfits I tend
to wear, this is right up my street and I think a welcome return to
smart summer styling.
tell us your three favourite pairs of sunglasses on Discounted
Peoples have always been a firm favourite of mine and this is a prime
example of their timeless design and wonderful quality.
slightly modern twist on an older style, these make me think of Steve
McQueen in his hay-day. Suave summer styling.
love the contrast on the frame of this pair. Just a really interesting
design and wonderful use of very basic colours.
