Choosing a brand can be hard. A brand can be a trend one month and out of the fashion loop the next and it is often very difficult to keep up to speed. At 360 Degree we are passionate about men’s fashion and we have a particular interest in designer brands, and this has given us a platform to express what we believe to be some of the leading brands out there on the market right now. With this in mind, we have compiled our comprehensive list of the leading brands out there at the moment and our opinion on which brands are currently in our top 10. Feel free to give us yours!

Our Top 10

Number 1

Ralph Lauren: It can be difficult to attract a high volume of customers when you set your clothing prices at designer levels, but Ralph Lauren have managed to strike a fine balance and when it comes to high-quality polo shirts there are few that can compete.

The Best Men’s Fashion Accounts On Instagram

Social media has transformed the world forever. The way we receive and interpret news and information will almost certainly never be the same again and it is incredible to watch the way things have shifted even in recent years. Instagram is no exception and as arguably the most powerful tool to promote products from a visual perspective it has altered the way in which we consume these products significantly. One of the best examples of this is in the fashion industry, where Instagram users are inundated with thousands upon thousands of various outfit choices to whet their appetite for their next shopping jaunt.

With this in mind, we have brought to you our five favourite Instagram accounts dedicated to men’s fashion. These are guaranteed to either inform or inspire you in one way or another and bring you some of the best men’s fashion posts out there today.

Top 5

@thepacman82

The Instagram account of Phil Cohen is exactly what you’re looking for if you want some wardrobe inspiration. His page shows absolutely no pictures of the man himself, it is purely and exclusively about the fashion, which we will presume given that you are reading this that that is exactly what you’re looking for!

@menwithclass

Quite possibly our favourite men’s fashion Instagram account out there, Men With Class feature posts to satisfy all of your formal-wear needs. Predominantly outfits such as suits, blazers and smart shirts, this page is certainly not geared towards your everyday clothing, but if getting suited and booted is your thing then so is Men With Class!

@jaybeezishangintough

Steering away from formal wear for now, Jay Beez is a great page to follow if you’re more interested in casual streetwear than wearing smart clothes all of the time. His page has got plenty to keep you occupied and inspired and he gives some great tips and pointers along the way.

@marianodivaio

Another feed littered with class, Divaio’s Instagram is a joy to behold for any budding men’s fashion connoisseur.

@fabioattanasio

Attanasio is an expert at making classic attire combine into modern outfits. He is the founder of ‘The Bespoke Dudes’ and has accumulated a significant and loyal following on social media to further build his already impressive reputation. Not to mention the fact he is from the centre of the fashion universe, Italy.

How To Wear A Turtle Neck

Turtlenecks are fast becoming one of the most versatile outfit choices you can make in the modern day, and are very much in fashion for both formal and informal occasions. They can be a nice blend between retro and modern and can come in a variety of different forms to give you ample choice when it comes to factors such as style and fit etc. 

One dilemma that all of this does pose however is simply, how does one wear a turtleneck?

 

The Rules Of The Turtleneck

 

Whilst we are very passionate at 360 degree that your style should reflect your personality and that the choices you make should be yours alone, there are a number of key rules that are generally adhered to when it comes to sporting a turtleneck jumper on any given occasion. Here we have compiled a short list of the general guidelines to follow if you own or are thinking of purchasing a turtleneck jumper, and how to wear it to your next selected occasion.

First things first, colours. Turtlenecks can accompany jackets or blazers as well as jeans or smart trousers, and so it is important to ensure that you have all of your colours matched up. A general rule of thumb is that if you’re looking to play it safe whilst still looking stylish, dark is the best way to go. There are a myriad of colourful options when it comes to turtlenecks but if this is your first time making this relatively bold fashion statement then playing it conservative may be the best way to alleviate your fears.

 

The next factor you might wish to consider is the thickness of your turtleneck. In terms of style this can generally be left down to personal preference but when it comes to practicality you may wish to consider the seasons and the time of year when selecting a thicker turtleneck. Turtlenecks have been known to be somewhat itchy in the neck area and can get particularly warm in the summer months, so be mindful of how thick you go or you might get caught out!

Our final pointer when it comes to wearing a turtleneck is to be mindful that it is currently very fashionable to supplement it with other items such as an overcoat. The turtleneck-overcoat combination is currently very much an “in” look at the moment, and even if that is not your vibe you could also try and wear it with a bomber jacket or even a suit jacket. The choice really is yours, you can even come up with an innovative look yourself if you’re feeling bold enough!

What Is Smart Casual?

What Does Smart Casual Actually Mean?

We’ve all heard it, we’ve almost all attended some form of event within the past twelve months which specifies the need to adhere to a ‘smart casual’ dress code, but do any of us truly know what it actually means? And has the definition shifted during recent years?

In this blog we’re not only going to address the generic definition of smart casual, we’re also going to talk about the ways in which you can comply with the dress code in the most fashionable ways possible.

So what does it mean? Well as if it didn’t already sound like enough of an example of hyperbole, it can in fact be broken down into two separate categories: formal and informal. It’s easy to see how so many get confused! Generally speaking ‘smart casual’ is the term used in situations where a full suit isn’t required but an element of class and formality is still required given the circumstances. Often if an invitation to an event specifies a smart casual dress code, it can feel awkward or even inappropriate to ask the person who provided the invitation for their definition of smart casual, or whether or not their interpretation is formal or informal. In this situation it often feels safer to plump for the ‘formal’ option to err on the side of caution, but even being overdressed to an occasion can come with its difficulties.

Smart Casual In Layman’s Terms

Here at Men Fashions we have put together our brief but all-encompassing definition of ‘smart casual’. This is of course still open to interpretation and can vary depending upon factors such as the formality of the invitation or other less controllable variables such as weather conditions and the activities that will be undertaken throughout the occasion.

So here it goes:

Smart casual is a dress code for occasions at which a neat yet fairly relaxed outfit is required. It is perhaps the happy medium that can be found between the sort of attire you wear at work and the comfortable clothes you might wear whilst you are at home watching the television.

Seems fairly straightforward doesn’t it? Well even if you are still confused about the somewhat ambiguous nature of the term ‘smart casual’ then do not despair. We are here to give you some helpful pointers to guide you in how to dress when attending a smart casual event.

What Can I Wear?

This all begs the question: what can I wear to a smart casual event? The very fact that the event in question is a smart casual one perhaps suggests that it is in fact not something that you need to overthink about. As long as your clothes are tidy and well-presented then the actual fact is you can’t really go wrong. Depending on your style and your fashion preferences; smart shoes, jeans and a casual shirt with a collar is pretty much the go-to option when it comes to smart casual events. If that still feels too ‘formal’ or that’s simply not your style, we have compiled a short list of outfits which are compliant with the dress code of a smart casual event:

  • Blazer, t-shirt, chinos, smart shoes
  • Polo shirt, jeans, trainers
  • Collared shirt, smart trousers, smart shoes
  • Blazer, collared shirt, jeans, smart shoes
  • Collared shirt, jeans, trainers/comfortable shoes

As you can see, following a smart casual dress code really isn’t as stressful as it sounds, and there are a myriad of outfit options that you can follow whilst still adhering to the rules set out within your invitation. If you are still in doubt then follow this general rule of thumb: make sure your outfit is neat and well presented, whilst still maintaining an element of comfort and practicality.

Above all else, enjoy your event!
