Do you need something that’ll inject a dose of proper manliness into your wardrobe? Are you sick of the same old jacket styles season after season? You’ve done the parka, the Harrington and the bomber jacket and you’re out of ideas. Well, we have just the guide for you and it involves a classic favourite of ours; the men’s aviator jacket.

The aviator jacket, also known as the pilot jacket or flight jacket is absolutely timeless and is anything but your standard men’s leather jacket. And although you might be thinking the last man to be seen effortlessly rocking an Aviator jacket was a young Leonardo DiCaprio in the appropriately named Hollywood classic The Aviator, at least you know you’re in good company. But you don’t need to own an aeroplane or even a pilot’s license to look good in this wardrobe essential.

I found the ideal aviator jacket and it is from Pepe Jeans. Guys you should all go and check it out.

My Hackett London Grey Suit

When it comes to suits, nothing beats the staples. And by staples, we mean black, navy and grey. Navy and black have always had a general popularity for their adaptability, but grey also emerges as a worthy suit colour choice. In fact, grey suits have become more prevalent in street style, their versatility especially appealing to the younger market. For something clean, understated and classic, a grey suit does the trick. However grey can also be tricky to perfect. Done right grey reads youthful and modern; done wrong it will leave you looking outdated and frumpy.

Light Grey Suit

Light grey suits are an excellent choice for formal and casual looks. They are youthful, modern and sharp – but as with all suits, tailoring is essential. Ensure you’re choosing grey suits that do not overwhelm your body and fit your shoulders appropriately. Lighter versions of grey are also an appealing option for the hotter months and provide a summery alternative to the monotony of black and navy. You are also going to want to make sure you keep an eye out for potential dirt marks as light grey can stain quite easily.



Casual Styling for Light Grey Suit

Wearing light grey suits can be a softer approach to grey tailoring, and they work phenomenally well for casual wear. The key to embracing light grey for casual looks is to go for suits that come in lightweight materials and fabrics such as cotton. Pair a light grey suit with white trainers for a relaxed look inspired by recent street style trends. Alternatively, a brighter trainer will draw emphasis to your outfit and inject a dash of colour to your looks. White complements light grey well but does not be afraid to incorporate darker tones like burgundies and navies to ground your looks.

The it-leather jacket
 Total Outfit: Pepe Jeans

Total Outfit: Pepe Jeans

Lately, it’s all about leather in my outfits. Not leather imitation, real, quality, leather. That’s the only kind I want.

Recently I could have purchased a leather imitation jacket for myself for pennies… but I chose real leather instead. It looks way better, it feels way better and it will look great for years.

One thing that I looked at when I got my leather jacket was the pockets. I don’t really go for jackets that have a lot of zippers. the fewer the better. Call it a matter of personal preference but I’d rather “load” my outfit with some separate accessories than with some annoying zippers. How do you like my new PEPE JEANS leather jacket?

One of the things I absolutely *LOVE* to do here at Be Stylish is to take a complete outfit, reverse-engineer it, then tell you how to put it back together for yourself.

But classy suits and silk slim ties is not the only thing that’s stylish. A biker look can show just as much style as the most expensive suit IF you wear it in the right circumstances. Plus, you need to BE the kind of guy who would wear something like this.

Today I want to present to you a classic biker look. The black-grey t-shirt and jeans are everything you need. You don’t need much help here, just go for some simple denim.

Boots! if you’re really going for that biker look, the books will make the whole difference. Just imagine Dustin in wearing black leather shoes instead. he wouldn’t make that much of a fashion statement in that case.

Add to the boots a leather belt, a cool haircut and we’re done… or are we?

Remember: it’s all in the details.

How to transition your wardrobe from summer to autumn
 Watch: Rado HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph

Watch: Rado HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph

We always say that summer is a great season to play with fashion and experiment with different styles. It’s a time when you can discover new things and include them in your daily outfits. However, once the autumn arrives, you should not ditch your style or feel like you need to follow a fashion routine. As the days get shorter and the weather gets colder, you can easily stay stylish by following a few basic principles that will help you make the best of the cold season from a sartorial point of view.

Fabrics

If in the summer, the lightest of materials are the way to go, in the autumn you can start wearing materials that are a bit thicker in order to keep warm, but not so heavy that you sweat.

Layers

When outdoor conditions are uncertain, the best way to go in terms of fashion is layers. Instead of going for a heavy jumper for example, wear a light shirt, a vest and maybe a jacket. This way, depending on the weather conditions, you can take off either the jacket or the vest and still feel good.

Accessories

When it comes to accessories, there are some autumn essentials that will get you far during the season. Of course, umbrellas and hats are on top of the list, but overshoes and fingerless gloves can not only complete an outfit from a visual point of view, but also give you much needed protection. Luckily you won’t have to worry about your watch, if you own one similar to mine. My Rado fits perfectly with my autumn closet and I can easily match it with all my outfits.

Shopping - September Issue
3.jpg

Hello guys!

As you may already know, I love shopping! I try always to find unique pieces for my closet but also things that will fit in really easy.

I was looking for a great pair of white sneakers for the longest but I wanted a really unique piece! Thank god I found those Etro white leather sneakers! I can easily where them from day to night and the most important you will not see everyone wearing them. Go check them! I highly recommend them.

Balenciaga is so hot at the moment. Last year I bought the sock trainers and I really loved them. For this season I though why not to go for the Triple S. The ugly shoe trend is still on and even though they are really heavy, they look amazing.

Last but not least I wanted to buy a new backpack for everyday use. I wanted a classic piece that I could also travel with. So Louis Vuitton was definitely the one! I bough the Christopher PM and it is really comfortable and stylish.

Would you head to a big meeting with a potential client without shaving or combing your hair? Would you go to meet the top tax lawyer in your town wearing a tattered suit and worn tie? Would you set up for a presentation to a room full of bankers wearing scuffed up shoes with the soles coming off? No? You wouldn’t? Then why would you overlook your watch? Why would you not make sure that, in addition to grooming a nice suit, you wore a proper timepiece? Just as a tailored suit and fresh haircut give me confidence to go into a meeting, a good timepiece also gives me that exact feeling. It has a subconscious effect. I realize that, most of the time, people are staring at my watch but one way or another, just wearing it gives me a boost to my confidence. If you consider the business world to be a battlefield sometimes, then your timepiece is like your secret ally. Going into a presentation wearing your Rado watch makes it feel like you will be well received. That kind of confidence helps you to perform better. Is this considered insecurity? Yes! Of course it is! But why not stack the odds in your favour?

The Watches I Choose
 Watch: Rado HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph

Watch: Rado HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph

Watches are like art. Some guys like certain brands, others like them based on the technology and some others like them because it looks good. Swiss made will always be the benchmark for watch quality. A watch could be a celebration of a moment in your life. A birth, a marriage or something else. I also believe a watch should be purchased for the long term and for use as well. Watches must also fit your personality. That's why you will always see me wearing durable timepieces that fit my sleek, stylish and dynamic attitude. I choose Rado HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph, an automatic watch made of plasma high-tech ceramic that for sure will last forever.
So my advice guys, always buy quality! Save your money.
You'll appreciate it more.

Spending The Day By The Sea

Total Outfit: Hackett London by Shop And Trade

Great is the sun, and wide he goes
Through empty heaven with repose; 
And in the blue and glowing days
More thick than rain he showers his rays. 

Though closer still the blinds we pull
To keep the shady parlour cool, 
Yet he will find a chink or two
To slip his golden fingers through. 

The dusty attic spider-clad
He, through the keyhole, maketh glad; 
And through the broken edge of tiles
Into the laddered hay-loft smiles. 

Meantime his golden face around
He bares to all the garden ground, 
And sheds a warm and glittering look
Among the ivy's inmost nook. 

Above the hills, along the blue, 
Round the bright air with footing true, 
To please the child, to paint the rose, 
The gardener of the World, he goes.

Why I Am Always Wearing A Watch
 Watch: Rado HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph

Watch: Rado HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph

Wearing a watch has a positive effect on my attitude towards time. I am more attentive to how I spend my 24 hours. Beyond the technical and mechanical intricacies of a watch, I am also fascinated by these devices that claim to mark and control time. Having always a very busy
schedule, I really need to wear a watch. Wearing a watch is a great way to add interest to an outfit as well, which makes them essential.


Find a wrist watch that really stands out from the rest! It could be the beginning of a long friendship. Like my relationship with my Rado HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph.

How Do You Spend Your Summer Days?

I really enjoy summertime. I like spending time with friends and family. Living the most! Dressing comfortably and caring the least about my outfits. So a total blue outfit is probably my go to look. But even during summers I do not have a lot of spare time, which means I need to check time constantly. My Rado watch is there to help me. I am choosing the HyperChrome Automatic Chronograph, an automatic watch made of plasma high-tech ceramic. It is very durable and also water resistant which makes it even more ideal during summertime.  And you? How do you spend your summer days and what do you wear?

Are you looking for a casual but classy look to wear this summer? If so, then look no further than the men’s Riviera style. The Riviera style merges sophistication and casualness together into a stylish blend which light and cool for the warmer weather. 

The Riviera Trend

Ever since the first wave of well-to-do holidaymakers started flocking to southern parts of France and Italy in the late ’20s to early ’30s, an understated and elegant style began to emerge that was ideal for the endless boating, promenading and lounging they indulged in. This look is what has since become known as the Riviera trend. There may be a number of staple Riviera pieces already in your wardrobe: blue shirts, chinos, boat shoes, moccasins; but merging these pieces together can create a truly stylish look.

There are a lot of trends that swing about which are hard for people to come on board with. This isn’t one of them. The Riviera trend is really easy to incorporate into your already existing wardrobe as well as being easy to style and even easier to pull off.

How To Get A Bohemian Style
 Pants & Shirt: Antony Morato / Shoes: Etro / Sunglasses: Gucci 

Pants & Shirt: Antony Morato / Shoes: Etro / Sunglasses: Gucci 

One key look that many men want to achieve is the bohemian style. It’s cool, laid back and comfortable but still has a certain element of stylishness to it. This look is more about your attitude rather than specific wardrobe additions but there’s a few things you can add to your collections to help you nail this effortless style. Let’s jump into it

Get Lighter

This isn’t about dropping a few bounds, it’s about going for lighter colorways. Pale blue jeans, brighter shirts and deeper colored accessories are what make this look far more approachable. You want to stay away from monochrome outfits and having too many browns and dark tones in your outfit. Keep things light and relaxed.

Get Accessories

Usually we would say don’t go overboard on the finishing touches to your outfits but that goes out of the window here. This is where you’ll be adding most of the personality and uniqueness to the style. Go for hats, necklaces, rings, bracelets, bandanas and scarves a pivotal look to the bohemian style. Again, not all at once, but two or three at a time should do the trick. And don’t make them too premium, we’re looking for leather bracelets, rope necklaces with a pendant and anything with an air of individuality about it.

Get Lazier

This doesn’t mean start sitting on your arse for days on end and obstaining from a good shower. It means being a little more lax with the ironing, opt for comfier footwear with the laces undone, let your accessories hang off you in a more care-free fashion and don’t buy everything to fit you perfectly. Obviously don’t do all these things at once or it’s going to be really hard to make it look stylish. Just a couple of these at once and you’ll give off a much more relaxed vibe.

Why I Love Greek Summer
 Swimsuit & Shirt: Hackett London / Sunglasses: Tomas Maier 

Swimsuit & Shirt: Hackett London / Sunglasses: Tomas Maier 

There are plenty of blog posts about summer in Greece. Too many to count, but the side that we locals get to see, the secret side is what keeps us coming back for those precious moments with friends near the sea.

Summer in Greece is not only concentrated on the islands of course; which is sometimes the only thing most visitors either get to or care to see. Athens is not a place to be avoided at all costs. The open air concerts, the festivals, the art, the bars, and the hustle and bustle of the beautiful magical Athenian summer night, can’t be described in words; it must be lived!

Here is my list of things that make a Greek summer complete.

  1. Go to the beach early, and stay after sun down — always. (on those rare occasions that you sleep at a beach… wake up at dawn and take refreshing morning swim)
  2. Go with friends, leave with more friends.
  3. Eat at a small tavern, preferably overlooking the sea. Pick the small unassuming places not the ones featured in Conde Nast Traveler (sorry but it’s true).
  4. The secret beaches are usually the best ones.
  5. The secret beaches are the hardest to get to — for that exact same reason.
  6. Leave your fucking mobile phone off and enjoy the sea, dive in, stay in and live in the moment.

A day in Sandbanks
 Leather Jacket: Diesel / Sunglasses: Saint Laurent

Leather Jacket: Diesel / Sunglasses: Saint Laurent

It has been called England’s answer to Malibu. But that’s a bit like calling Hugh Grant England’s answer to Brad Pitt. A nonsense. Nevertheless, it’s not hard to see why the analogy sprang up.

Sandwiched between the seaside towns of Bournemouth and Poole on England’s South coast the Sandbanks peninsula juts like a pointed finger about a mile out to sea. It is so narrow at one section that you can see the waves lapping along the edge of both of its sides from the road.

People pay a high price for the awesome views out across one of the world’s largest natural harbours, taking in the golden dunes of Studland nature reserve on the opposite shore and then out over the English Channel to the Isle of Wight. In fact, it is said to be one of the most expensive places on earth per square metre to buy a home and the property price tags have given it a reputation as a seaside playground for the ultra rich.

There are a few fantasyland lairs, from which Bentleys and Porches glide in and out, but if you come here hoping to spend a few days living the millionaire lifestyle you will be largely disappointed.

Think instead of wide stretches of golden coastline where kids fish for crabs in the rock pools, as Dad finishes off the sandcastle development they started earlier. Both desert their pursuits in a flash when the ice-cream boat arrives. The real Sandbanks is the traditional British seaside resort of yesteryear.

Summer has arrived and I couldn’t be more excited to welcome the season of BBQs, beer gardens and trips to the seaside! I really love summer and below you will find the 10 reasons why summer is my favorite season of the year!

1. Ice Cream. The perfect date? Strolling along the sea front, with great company and a delicious gelato!

2. Late nights. There’s something about getting home from work when it’s still light that gives you bundles of energy! Dinner with friends, strolls in the park, there's so much to do when the evenings are longer.

3. The best foods are in season. Strawberries, cherries, grapes and watermelon, beautifully ripe like they only are in summer. Perfect for a fruit salad on a sunny day.

4. Al-fresco dining. We love a good picnic, and what better way to enjoy the sun than with tasty food outside?

5. The weather! There’s nothing like a sunny day to give you those happy feelings! Trips to the seaside are a must when the sun is shining.

6. Festivals. The season of fun has arrived! There’s a festival to suit everyone, so why not have a look at what’s out there? The smaller, quainter festivals are often the best…

7. Adventures. The warmer weather makes outdoor adventures much more fun! Bike rides, country walks – what are your favourites?

8. Barbeques. As soon as the sun comes out, so does the BBQ! Friends, family, sunshine and food, what could be more perfect? Leaving the winter coat, hat and scarf in the wardrobe and replacing them with sunnies, shorts and flip-flops!

10. Nature. And last but not least, nature! We get to see the flowers, butterflies, and beautifully coloured birds in all their glory.

The Linen Suit

Linen suits in earthy, pale colors are a great idea for summer weddings and other dressed-up, outdoor affairs. They’re cool, comfortable, and gentlemanly. You just need to be careful of one thing: looking like a literal sack of potatoes. Linen is a fabric that will rumple and stretch out the second you call your Uber, so the cut and fit of the suit is everything. I chose mine from Antony Morato and I paired it with a black T-shirt and a pair of camel boats.

Α Day in Zurich

Although it’s routinely placed at the top of lifestyle rankings, Zurich is rarely, if ever, rated as one of Europe’s cultural capitals. There’s a perception that it’s a bankers’ city – a Swiss Square Mile without any West End to escape into. While it is true that high salaries and a strong currency mean Switzerland’s biggest city is expensive for visitors, with some planning, and a focus on culture instead of cuisine, it makes for an enjoyable break, whether or not it is made part of a skiing holiday.

The city boasts cultural big-hitters including the Kunsthaus, one of Europe’s great modern art museums, and Museum Haus Konstruktiv, which showcases “concrete, constructive and conceptual art” in a former electricity substation. Zurich-West, a former industrial district, is a hub for contemporary art, design, food and architecture. The whole city is relatively car-free and bike-friendly.

Fashion is a big thing as well! In every little corner of the city you cans pot stylish and posh people walking silently around. Luxury fashion is huge there and people take risks regarding their style.

I found myself in Zurich and I wanted to explore the city but I needed a cute outfit in order to fit with the crowd. So I chose a Tom Tailor pair of trousers and a very cool and rich khaki color Religion Shirt. I paired them with my new Balenciaga sock boots,
