How to Wear Yellow as a Menswear Color

Continuing our series on how to wear certain colors, we move from two underrated menswear hues, green and orange, and one overrated one, black, to one that some men are reluctant to use because of its brightness or tone: yellow. As an accent, yellow pairs exceptionally well with classic menswear colors, and the range of tones it includes makes it quite versatile when featured as a larger article of clothing such as a sports coat.

There’s some tremendous outerwear in today’s roundup, including this Rocky Mountain Featherbed down vest, Engineered Garments field parka, and brown leather Billy Reid bomber. This “Enemies of the Gentleman’s Wardrobe” pocket square also isn’t that much cheaper than retail, but it’s fun and you’d save a few bucks. Maybe something to put towards a sloppy burger.

Ralph Lauren reissued a bunch of stuff from their much-coveted Stadium 1992 and P-Wing collections this week, which got me all nostalgic about mid-90s Polo. We ended up digging up a few vintage Polo finds on eBay. The ski jacket is a classic, but my favorite is probably this handknit cowichan. Like a lot of ‘90s Ralph Lauren, it fits huge, so pay attention to measurements.

Our own Pete has a bunch of great stuff listed over at Grailed this week. I love the South2 West8 retro-style hiking backpack, white Heschung moccasins, Engineered Garments duffle coat, and Crescent Down Works puffer vest. This knitted version of Engineered Garments’ popular Bedford is also great – and a rare find. You can see Pete team it with a turtleneck here

20 Menswear Items that WON’T go out of style between now & the next U.S. Solar Eclipse

Above: A pin-hole shadow effect produced by a plant during this year’s solar eclipse. 

Style can be finicky. Silhouettes (jackets, neckties, lapels, pants) expand and contract. Colors fall in and out of favor. Fabrics, cuts, and patterns can be all the rage one year, and then not too far after you look at an item of clothing and think… “what was I thinking?”

Yet some items seem to always look good, no matter what sort of trendy-noise is going on around them. The next total solar eclipse to hit the US does so in 2024, where it’ll sweep up through Texas, Arkansas, and on through Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and New York (among others). After that, it’s on to 2045, where another total Solar Eclipse will follow a West to East path similar to this past Monday’s event, albeit a bit further south. I’m willing to bet a pair of ISO 12312-2 glasses that most of, if not all of these menswear items will still, STILL be in favor come 2045. And if I’m wrong? First person that comes and finds my sexagenarian arse will get a pair of them glasses on my dime. Assuming I’m still solvent and breathing. (I plan on being both. I mean, I have hats to wear, but, you never know.)

 

(restrained) Aviator Style Sunglasses

Aviators

Not the big, googly, Maverick in Top Gun shades. The ones the Apollo astronauts wore. Good enough for going to the moon, good enough for getting to mars. (Shown Above: The American Optical Original Pilot, and a pair of Randolph Engineering Aviators.)

 

A Navy Blue Wool Sportcoat or Blazer

Navy Wool Blazer

Sure, the bright gold or shined up brass button look might have fallen out of favor, but the basics are still the same. Quality wool, deep navy color, two buttons, and lapels that aren’t razor thin nor hugely fat. Goes with everything from wool trousers to crisp chinos to dark denim. (Shown above is a Crosby fit J. Crew Legacy blazer from a few years back.)

 

The Oxford Cloth Button Down Shirt

OCBD

Band collar shirts come and go (why they come back is beyond me), but the button down collar is here to stay. And oxford cloth? Sure, it’s a little thick for the hotter months, but for spring, fall, and winter, it balances a certain laid-back vibe with still looking put together. (Shown above is Amazon’s “Goodthreads” button down.)

 

The Single Breasted, Notch Lapel, Above-the-Knee Wool Topcoat

Single Breasted Wool Topcoat

Double breasted might sometimes become more fashionable. Peak lapels can come and go. And the length of the coat will always be expanding and contracting. But this is the bedrock piece of cold weather outerwear for grown men. Color? Charcoal, mid-grey, or navy is timeless. Some would argue so is camel, albeit a bit more flashy. (Shown above: Last year’s wool/cashmere option from Charles Tyrwhitt.)

 

The Dive Watch

Dive Watches

Functional. Sharp. Easy to dress up or down. Tough. And you can spend as much or as little as you’d like on one.

 

Fitted, but not skin tight, Crew Neck T-shirts

Crew Neck Tee

Remember the super deep-v trend? Right. More modest v-neck tees are still very much in fashion, but… well, if it was good enough for the Fonz, it’ll be good enough for hologram Henry Winkler come 2045. (Shown above: one of Gustin’s USA Made Crew Neck Tees)

 

The Suede Chukka

1901 Barrett Suede Chukka

Comfortable, handsome, and crazy versatile. Whether they be worn in the cold or heat, they work. (Shown above: Nordstrom’s 1901 Barrett chukka. Full review here.)

 

The Single Breasted, 2 button, flat front w/ med. break Navy Suit

Classic cut navy suit

Lapels will wax and wain as fashion changes. The jacket length will rise and fall. But if you keep the proportions from drifting into either extreme, then you should be good. More navy suits can be found here.

 

Clean Shaven

Clean Shaven

Beards have been in for a while now, but being clean shaven will never go out of style. It’s professional and smart looking.

 

Hand writing a Thank-you Note

AOM Stationery

This is a stretch to put it in the “menswear” category, but just because it’s not something you wear doesn’t mean it doesn’t reflect your personal sense of style. (Shown above: AoM’s letterpress stationery)

 

Straight or Slim (not skinny) Dark Denim

Straight fit dark denim

Not baggy. Not painted on. A straight fit or a well proportioned slim fit jean. Yet, this is actually one of the items on this list that might not make it to 2045. Denim is becoming less and less denim-y (unless you’re into the raw thing) as more and more synthetic, stretchy (and damn comfortable) fibers get woven in. Will that eventually lead to the Blue-Jean’s demise? Who knows. Dark wash jeans have been around for decades. And they look great on everybody. (Shown above: Banana Republic’s Rapid Movement denim in a straight fit.)

 

A little bit of matte hair product. Not a lot. A little.

L'oreal Homme

The greased or cemented look comes and goes. But a little bit of hair product, just enough to provide some hold and texture without blinding levels of shine, will always be a good look. If you’re lucky enough to have hair. (Shown above: L’oreal Homme’s “Mat” hair product.)

 

Dark Brown Oxfords

Dark Brown Oxfords

Yes, walnut (and other lighter, bolder shades of brown) are having their time in the sun. As are monk straps. But the humble dark brown oxford will never go out of style. And, as shown above on the Allen Edmonds Cornwallis, even a dark brown oxford can be sexed up a bit.

 

The Bald-Guy Bic or Buzz Cut

Buzz cut

Because the alternatives are just so terrible. Fellas, fire it before it quits on you.

 

Flat front, crease free, Slim but not tight Cotton Chinos

Cotton Chinos

You think it’d be tough to screw up cotton pants, but the 90s sure showed us how. Those pleated, balooning, stiff khakis were awful. Now, we’ve got access to multiple fits, tons of colors, and even a range of weights to the fabric depending on the season. (Shown above is a pair of BR lightweight chinos from last summer.)

 

Being in Shape

Tired Joe

Like dark denim, this might not be all the rage in 2045 either. The tea leaves might be telling us that there’s a shift coming on, with (and this is just a small sign) e-sports leagues becoming a legitimate entertainment industry. Lemme put it this way. My Grandfather never understood why the hell anyone would want to go to a gym or workout. He’d pull a 12 hour shift at the General Motors plant, then come home and collapse into his easy chair. The manual labor of his work day was enough to chew him up. Now that many (most?) of us have sedentary jobs, we lift up and put down heavy objects created… so we can lift them up and put them down. Does that not seem, at least a little… ridiculous? We run when nothing is chasing us. We hop on a bike and ride around in a loop until we’re tired. Maybe, just maybe, this is the last gasp of humans putting value on strong muscle groups. Maybe through technology we’ll some how move past that? Not saying it’s a good or a bad thing. I just wouldn’t be surprised if it happened.

 

The Crisp, White, Semi-Spread Collar Dress Shirt

Semi-spread collar dress shirt

You can have your extreme cutaways or roaring 20’s inspired point collars. Gimmie a versatile, semi spread any day. (Shown above: Ledbury’s Fine Twill semi-spread.)

 

The Crisp, Light Blue, Semi-Spread Collar Dress Shirt

Semi-spread collar dress shirt

Along with the white option, you could stock your closet full of nothing but these and look darn good between now and 2045.  (Also shown above: Ledbury’s Fine Twill semi-spread.)

 

A Simple, minimalist Dress Watch between 38-42mm in Diameter

Hamilton Railroad Small Seconds Automatic | Dappered.com

Hard to get classier than that. Yet… will the wrist watch, one day, go the way of the pocket watch? (Shown Above: Hamilton’s small seconds Railroad Automatic.)

 

Merino Wool V-Neck Sweaters

Merino Wool V-Neck

Smoother and lighter than a chunky lambswool, yet nowhere near the cost of cashmere. V-necks are perfect for layering over collard shirts, whether they be dress shirts or dressed down button ups. (Shown above, UNIQLO’s merino wool v-neck.)

And remember, if I’m wrong? Feel free to remind me of this come 2045.

12 Common Menswear Misconceptions

#1. Wool is hot.

Wrong. I mean, it can be if we’re talking about super thick, bulky lambswool or tweed, but even then if it’s unlined, it should breathe and regulate temperature better than equally thick cotton (or, heaven forbid, cheap synthetics). Wool is nature’s high-tech fiber. It wicks, it reduces friction, and it breathes. A loosely woven, lightweight, tropical wool suit jacket or sportcoat will be much, MUCH more comfortable than cotton chino in the heat. Same goes for socks in the summer. Skip cotton. All cotton does is soak up and hold onto sweat.

12 Common Menswear Misconceptions | Dappered.com

The coolest jacket I own. A bonobos unconstructed, almost totally unlined, Itailan wool sportcoat.   

#2. Cotton undershirts are a must if you’re sweaty.

Speaking of cotton and sweat… the cognitive dissonance displayed by defenders of the white cotton undershirt is cult-like. Again, cotton does not wick. Once it gets wet, it stays wet for a very long time. Especially if it’s stuck snug up against your skin (unlike, say, a dress shirt which should have a little room to air out and breathe). An extra layer of sweat soaked material next to your torso won’t keep you dry. It’s suffocating and it’s uncomfortable. Ditch the undershirt all together, or, switch to tech-gear.

#3. Most guys are slobs and should try to dress “better” more often.

Nope.

#4. When it comes to fit, the slimmer the better.

Yes, the 1990s were a mess of baggy, ill fitting clothing. But the unintended consequence of the “tailored” movement ended up being skinny jeans and painted on suits. Comfort and well-fitting can exist in the same universe. Think skim. Not cling.

12 Common Menswear Misconceptions | Dappered.com

Slimmer is not always better. Your clothing does not have to look like you were poured into it.

#5. More precise grooming = more handsome.

Good grooming… is good. But if your beard looks like it was cut with frickin’ laser beams, then you might come across as fussy. Leave the obsession over your eyebrows and hair part to the international soccer stars.

#6. Being the best dressed and standing out is always good.

If you’re actively looking forward to out-dressing the groom at an upcoming wedding, you’re an asshole. Sometimes (often) it’s better to have the option of fading into the crowd a bit.

12 Common Menswear Misconceptions | Dappered.com

Part of dressing “well” is understanding the moment.

#7. The internet is right.

While the internet can be a fine place to pick up tips and ideas for looking good, it’s also filled with far too many arrogant, irrelevant goobers who have been convinced by social media that their perspective is not only gospel, it’s in high demand. Trust your gut. Beware the over-critical forum addict who speaks in absolutes. If he really knows everything about dressing well and living a stylish life, then why is he nose down in his phone/laptop so much, hammering out hyper critical, often hypocritical observations/delusions about other dude’s choices in clothes and footwear? There are exceptions to every rule. And that goes for the “rules” we spout off about on this website.

#8. Buy nice or buy twice.

Sometimes you get lucky and get something that’ll last long on the cheap. Sometimes, it’s a good idea to start with something less expensive (to familiarize yourself with your tastes) before diving into the high end pool. And sometimes, the cost of an item (especially when it comes to luxury goods) doesn’t keep pace with the overall build and quality of materials used.

#9. Bald is bad. Hair is always better.

Nope. Not always. See below.

 #10. No pant break is best.

It’s the skinny suit/skinny jeans look of the moment. Pant cuffs just barely grazing (if that) the tops of your shoes. Thing is, pant breaks and suit jacket fits and denim shapes expand and contract over time. A medium break to your trousers will never go out of style. Also, if you have any sort of muscle on your lower legs, having zero break to your pants will almost always result in your trousers getting stuck on your calves once you stand up from a sitting position.

#11. A collection of neckties is a necessary element of a man’s wardrobe.

I haven’t worn a tie (other than for photo shoots and black tie events) in six years. I own plenty of suits and wear them often. Neckties look great. But that doesn’t mean having more than a couple is necessary. Of course, your occupation has a lot to do with whether they are or not.

#12. Drinking = cool points.

Holding a drink for a photo shoot (or, in a movie or TV show) is often a crutch. It’s full blown I don’t know what to do with my hands! and we here on this website are guilty of that too. Alcoholic drinks can be delicious grown up “treats” and sophisticated looking (thanks to tons of marketing). But alcohol is also addictive and dangerous. Knowing how to make a fire is a useful skill that’s impressive to some. Lighting yourself on fire is not. Getting hammered immolates your style.

Advertising Menswear: Masculinity and Fashion in the British Media Since 1945

Advertising Menswear: Masculinity and Fashion in the British Media Since 1945


In what was a golden age of British advertising, the notion of the ‘peacock male’ was a strong theme in fashion promotion, reflecting a new affluence and the emergence of stylish youth cultures. Based on a detailed study of rich archival material, this pioneering study examines the production, circulation and consumption of print, television and cinema publicity for men’s clothing in Britain during the second half of the twentieth century.The study explores design issues and period style in advertising, the role of market research and consumer psychology in determining target audiences, the idea of the ‘new man’ in representing fashionable masculinities, and the various ways that menswear retailers and brands dealt with sex and gender, race, class and age. From y-fronts to Austin Reed suits to Levi’s jeans, menswear advertising epitomised the themes, stereotypes, contradictions and ambiguities of masculinity in an age of great social change. This meticulously researched and detailed work of scholarship will be essential reading for students and scholars of fashion, history, sociology, advertising, media, cultural and gender studies.
