We asked the Men's Fashion Cluster Ambassador Dandy to comment on the style of the celebrities on the red carpet, as he has a sharp eye for style and a witty language. Here is what he told us about the dress code of the celebrities attending the Emmy Awards 2016:
Cad & The Dandy: It’s about making the best suits and creating a new destination shopping experience
Interview with James Sleater, one of our founders and co-directors of Cad & The Dandy.
Dormeuil - the world famous manufacturer of fabrics and tailor-made suits - has just announced the winner in its 'Dandy x Dormeuil' contest. The question to which the participants had to answer was 'What makes a Dandy so elegant?'
James Sleater from the Cad & The Dandy in Savile Row outlines the key differences between a sports coat vs a blazer and the single breasted and double breasted jackets.
James Sleater from the Cad & The Dandy on Savile Row explains the correct suit arm length for a jacket.
Sleeve length is an important one, you’re looking for about quarter to half an inch of shirt cuff to show. Some people like to show a bit more, some people are a bit more conservative and show a little bit less.
There is one young, moustached and long-haired tailor who shakes the old school of London bespoke tailoring with what the street calls 'coolness'. He is definitely not what you would expect if you are familiar with the traditionally conservative scene of Savile Row.
Charles Pierre Baudelaire was a French poet, essayist, art critic, and pioneering translator of Edgar Allan Poe, born in Paris, France, in 1821. His most famous work Les Fleurs du mal expresses the changing nature of beauty in modern, industrializing Paris during the 19th century.
'MAX & MORITZ tailored' collection happily gives meeting to several fashion institutions, reigning ultimately and horrific in the contemporary men's elegance - the traditions of Italian tailoring, English fashion prejudices, essentially embodied in the phenomenon of Macaronism, and a special hedonism associated with the concept soive.
It was full with Bohemian outfits in which Military elements are built, strange items such as corkscrews, which gave me carte blanche to move conceptually among them with my protruding from the pockets silver spoons, boutonnieres, vases and countless monarchical needles like a more gallant, but not old-fashioned scout.
Cad & The Dandy has a passion for all things tailoring. They don’t over complicate things, operating from premises in Savile Row and The City, with their trained Savile Row tailors, cutters and finishers. They offer three grades of tailored suit: fully hand-stitched, half hand-stitched and machine stitched. All of our suits start with pattern creation, done by hand and retained for future orders.
At PittiUomo you can find everything a Dandy needs! Yes, that's true. I visited the fair with a real Dandy and he confirmed that. He was happy to see such a variety of exquisite suits, shoes, leather bags, glasses and other accessories.
It is an undeniable fact that at Pitti Uomo in Florence you can see the most stylish men. Last week I visited Pitti Uomo 89 and saw it myself. Below you can find a selection of the most stylish men in my opinion. What makes them look so well? Read what are the most important things that distinguish them.
Pitti Uomo gives stage not so much of the foisted fashion trends, but it's more like a chivalrous tournament between men who is the most elegant. That's why the eyes are crossed like rapiers and the arrogance is followed by unconcealed curiosity. But the protagonist is not so the elegant man but the taste...
During this year's edition of the trade show Pitti Uomo, you could meet all kinds of interesting personas - stylish, different, elegant, dressed to impress. One of them was Vladimir Ștefan Popa - he is an Author & the Creative Director of the men's fashion blog The Essence of Style.
The world's most important platform for men's clothing and accessory collections and for launching new projects in men's fashion, Pitti Uomo, is currently running (January 12-15, 2016) in Florence, Italy. Be Global Fashion Network is on spot to show you the atmosphere of the event and to reveal the key trends and directions in men's fashion business.
The creator of this style is the previously mentioned Beau Brummell, who defines dandyism as the last burst of heroism in decadent ages and compares it with poetic creativity, with the most severe monastic discipline of keeping such a brilliant self-control, which surprises everyone, except a dandy.
According to the Formal dress code, men wear classic suits, preferably black or evening blue. In some social circles Semi-formal can also mean Black Tie. But in the general case this is a term for the most informal of formal dress standards. Instead of belt, a vest and a bow tie in another color can be added to the tuxedo.
If Black Tie is written on the invitation, it means formal evening dress or tuxedo. It is worn only after 6 PA. Initially it appeared in the English aristocratic society as a garment suitable for smoking rooms, where gentlemen seclude, from where its name comes - a smoking jacket.
For an official meeting of business nature a dark blue suit faintly striped or discretely checked is suitable. Blue ink, leaden, anthracite, mouse grey-brown, chocolate-brown are also suitable. Once again a white shirt with double cuffs with a monogram and cufflinks and a tie in black, in pastel colors, dotted, English or American stripes and in no case other figurines, flowers and Mickey Mouse.
The gentleman unthinkably loves the fine fabrics of Loro Piana, delicately dramatic folds of Napolisu Мisura, smartly nervous, yet perfect naturalness of hand stitching, more than sensual, thoughtful proportions almost in the sense of the canon of Polykleitos, museum memory of labels with a monogram and a date of sewing, flirting authenticity of buttonholes, semi-closeness of the garment above the most expressive part of the human body - arm.
