Gifts for the Men...Ideas from Professionals!

2011 is already bringing big things Fashion by He's way and its still only 2010. One of the big things will be a collaboration between Fashion by He and Men's Wearhouse. As a prequel to the big things coming He thought this would be a good time to do a mini holiday gift guide for the men in the ArmHe, or for the ladies who need ideas for the men in their lives. All members of the ArmHe should feel free to send He holiday gifts.

Holiday Tips from the Experts at Men's Wearhouse:

1. Layering and luxury fabrics: Classic layering is definitely in this winter, with a laid-back and versatile feel. Keep the cold out with a dress shirt paired with a 100 percent cashmere V-neck sweater or a faux-suede sport coat for a more casual winter look. A vintage zip-front Sherpa collar sweater can add a shot of rugged to jeans or khakis, as well as an added boost of warmth.

2. Mix and match with color: Whether his style is trendy or understated, try menswear in dark earth tones, shades of purple, and classics such as navy, charcoal, and black. Pairing separates like a charcoal wool trouser with a black sport coat allows for flexibility with items he may already have — simply make it fresh with a new shirt or coordinating tie in a jewel-tone accent.

3. Business by day, party by night: Looks that can easily transition from work to evening are great for the man on the go. Wearing a dark, pinstriped wool suit with flat-front trousers can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Spice up the look with paisley ties or incorporate unusual colors to make a drab winter day more colorful. The perfect stocking stuffer, ties are a fun way to express a man’s personality without a major investment (neckwear prices start at $19.99).

4. Modern military: Military-inspired looks are all the rage this winter. Look for sharp military apparel such as buttons, exposed zippers, and shoulder detail with epaulets and stitching. Try a gunmetal gray no-iron shirt from Joseph Abboud with flat-front navy wool slacks.

5. Designer denim: Dark denim is ideal for casual workdays or weekends, making it a comfortably stylish and always versatile gift. In addition to offering a vast selection of leading brands in formalwear and suits, Men’s Wearhouse offers a variety of designer jeans, including Lucky, Buffalo, and Pronto Uomo.

6. Slimmer fits: A growing trend this winter is a modern slimmer-fitting suit. The two-button, side-vent, flat-front suit is the top choice right now and can be flattering for most men. Try top brands such as Calvin Klein, Lauren by Ralph Lauren, Kenneth Cole and Tommy Hilfiger.
