Men's Linen Shirts and Pants | Hot Weather Men's Fashion

Aaron Marino of alpha m. gives the low-down and opinion on men's linen shirts and pants. These types of shirts and pants are surging in the stores.

Linen fabric is woven from the fibers of the flax plant- the same flax that is the healthy seed for you to consume. The weave is loose, and the fabric is cool to touch, breathable, and light. Linen is tough to keep wrinkle-free (almost impossible) but there are blends with cotton or silk. Linen is a bit rough in texture, and the blends are softer. Because linen takes so much time and energy to produce, linen shirts and pants more expensive.

Aaron models examples of linen shirts in a store which are a bit boxy (not fitted) with a blunt cut (designed to be worn untucked). The polo linen shirt has nice detail and is a great casual look with city shorts and simple flip flops. Aaron then visits his closet, and he doesn't own any linen as it's incredibly hard to keep looking good. Linen is great in summer and will keep you cooler!

How can you tell that your men's pants are too small? Aaron Marino of alpha m. shares a pair of pants he bought online, and they are incredibly small. Alpha's tailor said that sizes for pants in the store don't correlate with the actual waist size (for example, Aaron's actual size 30 is a 31 -32 in the store).

Aaron Marino of alpha m. has an experiment for you. The next event that you attend where guys are wearing shorts, take notice of the 'uniform'. The uniform is typically ugly mandals (clunky, strappy, nasty), Polo shirt (standard cotton with jacked up color and another logo other than Polo),  and heavy / gigantic cargo shorts. Instead of these big and baggy shorts, men's shorts should not be too lRead More»

Cargo Pant | Rolling the Bottoms -
March 5, 2012
Aaron Marino of alpha m. shares a style tip from Greek guy at Starbucks. Cargo pants have a lot pockets and are made of cotton. They are ultra-casual pants. You can combine the cargo pants with flip flops by rolling up the bottoms of the pants and exposing the ankle and a little bit above. Combine the pants with a belt and v neck tee shirt. Add a jean jacket to the outfit, which works perfectly. Read More»

March 2, 2012
The majority of men have at least one body issue to consider when buying clothes and putting a wardrobe together.  Nature has not been quite as generous with handing out perfect body types as we wish she was, so, my motto is change what you can, and wear complementing clothes to disguise the rest. Fortunately, this isn’t difficult to achieve with the vast assortment of styles on today’s markeRead More»

Belts, both functional and fashionable, come in an assortment of styles, colors and types, and without one, make a pair of pants look naked. Like everything else we wear, belts are a reflection of our personality and fashion sense, and have the ability to make or break an outfit. Belts give our body a balanced look, separating our upper from our lower; creating symmetry no matter what our shape orRead More»

December 18, 2011
