In The Navy
For Spring 2013, one of the major trends for men is nautical. So whether you like sailing, or just want to tap into one of this season’s cool looks, nautical might just float your boat. Accessories are the ultimate way of being on-trend without feeling that you are taking it too far.
This American classic from Sebago is where the boat shoe started. Genuine moccasin construction wraps the foot in a single piece of leather and features rawhide lace. Guaranteeing a fit that’s uniquely your own, the Sebago blucher has a great non-skid, non-marking sole. This navy/red combo is a step beyond the expected take on nautical.
One of the great new talents is Kiel James Patrick. His take on preppy is fresh and very American. Either from his eponymous collection, or his collection for Brooks Brothers, Kiel has an approach that takes this trend to an entire new, yet very classic, level. Perfect for your favorite pair of khaki’s, the braided belt with signature details, is the ultimate weekend belt. His hand-crafted belts are made in Rhode Island.
Michael Saiger,in just five short years, and his brand ‘Miansai’ have become one of the most sought after accessory collections worldwide. The handmade designs are rustic, classic and timeless, leaving those who wear them feeling like they own a classic. The appearance of each watch gives a nod to those of past generations but belongs on the wrist of those of today. The watches contain Japanese movements, stainless steel hardware and sapphire glass.
For the office with a suit, or a great navy blazer to a wedding, J. Crew sets sail with this great stainless anchor steel tie clip. When just that touch of nautical is all you want to bring your look together, this is all you need.
There is nothing that says ‘nautical’ more than navy & white stripes. Brooks Brothers Black Fleece tote is the best take on the trend for Spring 2013 With its four outside pockets and two inside zip-closure pockets, the mid-weight sturdy canvas tote with leather handles is perfect from work to weekend.
