Paul Smith featured several "colorful" suits like the one below, that immediately brought "Mad Men" to my mind. This one in particular is something that can be worn by Pete Campbell. What's remarkable from this piece is its "shine" and of course the combination of the tie and the pocket square.
Hermes on the other hand offered a mix of formal elegance with casual elegance, a great one. From its combination of grey jackets, grey t-shirts. and black trousers to a very bohemian/casual ensemble like the one below with a red vest, grey cardigan, and white jersey.

They say less is more, and this proves it. A perfect example of the 60s Mod look due to the black skinny tie, crisp white shirt, and black trousers.
Using the same style combination, Dolce & Gabbana decided to use a wider tide and vest below.
Black is a synonym for elegance, and the addition of a pin striped jacket makes this outfit 100% Italian. The return of the double breasted jacket was more than evident this year in Milan.
For those days when one wants to be casual and comfortable, yet well dressed there's nothing more perfect than this ensemble.

Photographed below at one of the salons of the Palacio de Duenas in Seville, Spain; he can be seen wearing what appears to be a teal colored turtleneck with a black jacket and trousers. The touch of color can be appreciated in his socks and colorful/artistical design slippers.

50 years later, his portrayal of Marcello Rubini in "La Dolce Vita" still remains one of the most remembered ones in cinema history. Below he is shown in a scene from this Fellini movie strolling at night on Rome's Via Veneto.

To confront the freezing Russian Winter, Lara and Doctor Zhivago wore fur coats, fur hats,
wool trench coats, and what appears to be black turtleneck wool sweaters. What grabs my attention from the photo below is Omar Sharif's leather belted trench coat, and the fact that several years ago people were surprised to see this look on the runways, well this look originally comes from circa 1915-1917, just another proof that past fashions can become present and future fashions.
Stay warm and stylish this winter (if possible buy synthetic furs!).

I could go on and on regarding the shoes every stylish gentlemen must have in his wardrobe, which are appropiate for certain ocassions and seasons, the variety of colors and materials. But this time I would like to focus on two original pairs of canvas sneakers.
The first one, a pair of Tommy Hilfiger Peace Symbol print sneakers (which I proudly own after looking for weeks for a size that fit me) in red, navy blue, and white. The Peace Symbol is one of those iconic symbols from the 60s, a favorite of mine due to its representation of Peace & Love, and a symbol that has made a comeback as of last year. Besides this pair, one can find a black and orange pair, and also some bed sheets and even a bikini for your girlfriend with the Peace Symbol all from Tommy Hilfiger.
The second sneaker pair is from Vans and it has all over them the iconic Piet Mondrian painting which was made popular in 1965 by Yves Saint Laurent with his Mondrian dress collection. These sneakers are literally a piece of art.
I would recommend wearing any of these sneakers with a pair of jeans, white or blue trousers, or a monochromatic outfit to add a touch of "color". Ideal for those moments of leisure or hanging out with your friends at the club and lounge, these sneakers will certainly get the attention of many and express your sense of style.

The beginning of 2010 marks the start of a 365 day/10 year journey along an amazing road called "Life". A road which we'll travel to grow as persons, accomplish our goals, give the best of us to our famiy, friends, and other citizens of the world. There may some bumps and dangerous curves in this road, yet if we remain positive, objective, and proactive we will overcome them. And of course we'll have the opportunity to admire the great landscape and some outstanding settings, it's important we enjoy each of these moments.
During the early 60s, Alain Delon, was photographed driving a convertible car along the road in France. Wearing a white suit and portraying a confident attitude he posed for the camera.
So let's start our roadtrip along 2010 and the 10s...
