Dress: 1950s Vintage Dress from Maison Jadis

Whenever you are in NYC, Soho area, make sure to stop by Maison Jadis! I absolutely love this store! It’s a goldmine for beautiful dresses, frocks, jumpsuits, pants, crop tops, shoes, handbags and more from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, & 90s all in pristine condition! The only thing I loved more than the treasures in this store was the owner, Mary Ann Fusco! She’s extremely stylish, pleasant and knowledgeable about fashion – a Doll! I look forward to returning to her store and interviewing her soon to share with you all on the blog.

If you are unable to physically visit her at her amazing store stay up to date by using the following:

For Aakomon’s small waist and broad shoulders this double breasted, peak lapel navy blue linen suit is PERFECTION!

Dress Shirt: Trashness

Shoe: Aldo “Velinia” men’s dress shoe

This rich mahogany brown leather slipper dress shoe is divine when paired with this navy suit.¬† This style shoe is so versatile he had to have it in black too! So, shop away fellas because this beautiful shoe wont break the bank. It’s great with a suit (as shown here), a shirt & slacks, and/or worn casually with jeans.

Neck tie: Bloomingdales

I love menswear… Especially when a man wears it as well as this! All of the small details really pull this look together and make it stylish, modern, cool, and oh so sexy. Paying attention to choose the perfect tones of navy blue for each element of this look makes all the difference and is important when pulling off a monochromatic look. Most importantly the fit of this suit makes it look more expensive than it’s actual cost. Proper tailoring in men’s suiting, and menswear in general, is the difference between looking like a GQ magazine cover and an ad for K&G Men’s Clothing Store (nothing against K&G… but you know what I mean).
