’Tis the season to dress up after all



Whether you’re going overseas for the holidays or just looking to bring a bit of style into your own wardrobe in the season of “mists and mellow fruitfulness,” everyone wants to know how to dress like a real man.


Us Filipino men know we always have it particularly hard and a few male fashion guides out there make things even more vague on exactly how “dressing nicer” means.


Though it may be the season of cashmere coats and chunky jumpers, it's still bright enough to wear sunglasses despite the fact that it’s a few degrees lower than the usual.


Ok, let me make it easy.


To get you started on your wardrobe for what is quite frankly, the best season of the year, here is an ultimate (and clever) guide on how to dress for the holidays minus the sloppy, baggy coat.


Make Some Key Investments

Like most of our stylish female counterparts, you’ll want to embrace the notion of a luxury basic. This essentially means you’ll want to start buying clothes in lower quantity, but with higher quality, particularly when it comes to your everyday wear. Case in point, this year’s Fall/Winter collection from BOSS—the brand has an all- new silhouette in response to the athleisure influence.

Oversized tops are set alongside subtly cropped, tapered pants, lending an athletic look. Padded elements play a major role with voluminous outerwear and quilted pants in super-soft leather and wool-cashmere fabric.


A stylish man is always willing to spend a little bit more, so it is key to know which pieces to keep and which pieces to re-evaluate within your wardrobe.


Enhance Your Fit

It’s 2018 for Christ’s sake! We all know the modern man’s clothes fit a little slimmer everywhere compared to what the typical, traditional man is used to, especially when it comes to suits or coats. Tailoring today has to be inch-perfect.

Tailoring gets a sportswear twist at BOSS’s Fall/Winter collection this year courtesy of new combinations, like relaxed but tailored pieces updated with contrast yellow piping or a baseball shirt in a clean-cut silhouette. Even drawstring waists and ribbed cuffs are added to neatly tailored pants in another display of sartorialism with an athletic edge.


Mix Classy With Casual

Like any modern man, you would want to look like you put everything together effortlessly.  

The BOSS signature, double-breasted tailoring, appears on the runway in the form of long cashmere greatcoats in soft, structured wool, while tailored jackets in stretch-nylon lend a new technical touch to the brand’s iconic suiting. A bold highlight, shiny coated-nylon outerwear designs in bright yellow, and clean white bring new energy to more formal pieces.

Accessories complement the new look where traditional tailored styles meet sports. Nylon fabric panels redefine sartorial leather boots and penny loafers are finished with chunky, contrast soles, while backpacks are reworked in rich leather.


Load Up on Neutrals

You get the most value and versatility from your clothes by sticking with neutrals, so the modern man adores this. More fashion-forward men can get away with trendier colors and accessories when the season is right, but your safest bet is to stick with variations of black, white, gray, brown and navy.


With BOSS, the color palette is classically sartorial in shades of gray, blue and brown, off- white, charcoal, deep navy and cognac, but highlighted with bold yellow for sportswear flair.

And of course, Choose the Right Shoes

For the most typical men’s footwear, grab leather brogues, cap-toe or loafers in neutral blacks and browns (both lace-ups and single or double monk straps will work). You can wear these shoes with anything from jeans to wool trousers. They will definitely start you out on the right pied.
