This week, we’ve got men’s style covered from
head to toe… and, apparently, inside-out too. Paris has thrown up everything
from the sublime Ute Ploier’s ribcage-scarf (pictured, left) to Prada’s… interesting F/W
collection, featuring crop-tops and frilled miniskirts over shiny
. Has the
androgynous trend really crossed the gender divide?

Slick suits reign supreme on the catwalks, but for the modern urbanite, A Suitable Wardrobe looks for more suitable solutions for smart
travel wear

Refinery29 puts a Spring in their step with a roundup of
next season’s coolest new footwear, while Men’s Flair
belts up for a review of their favourite smart basic accessories.

But if the holiday
season has left you out of pocket, look to your own cupboard: Style Salvage has been doing some salvaging of his own in his wardrobe, and unearthed some
treasures. Dig deep!

Off the Cuff and Iluwfashion encourages men to ‘watch’ the trends this year with some great watch suggestions.   
A Suitable Wardrobe reflects Fred Astaire shiny chic. Who said patent leather oxfords and button down cardigans were passé? Whether updating those black jazz shoes with Refinery29′s suggested and-I’s lounge wear or a traditional country club cardigan, formal footwear deserves a place in every man’s closet.   
For those gearcravers who still are not convinced of the versatility of the cardigan, how about a Burton Mark XIII Fortress jacket?  Completely waterproof and insulated, it’s perfect for singing in the rain.
Manolo for the Men takes a look at the oddball style in the new Tom Hanks film Charlie Wilson’s War.

Pick of the Blogs

Relieve the post-Christmas boredom in a more constructive manner than hourly updating your Facebook status, Brandish has the pick of the blogs:
Style Salvage has got the sales covered, from b Store to H&M they’ve got the best tips for getting a bargain. Should you find yourself in Vancouver Demicouture have some great sale tips.
If that wasn’t enough encouragement to go out shopping share Carrying Contraption’s pain at missing out on a sale bargain.
I’m loving the grey and green combo on A Suitable Wardrobe, definitely something to try in the new year. Grey flannel has never looked so fresh and opstimistic.
The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Finland is UFF, that’s why those Finns look so damn stylish. Don’t believe me? Check out Pour Homme’s Pakek.
Present-wise, if you weren’t so lucky this year Refinery29 have got a rundown of their top 20 albums of 2007. Two of my favourites of the year, Electrelane and Of Montreal made onto the list so I’m off to listen to the rest!
