I had the pleasure of featuring Boston best men’s shops in The Man Issue of The Improper Bostonian.
The looks were inspired by Classic British Gentlemen. The styles range from Smart Casual to Elegant Formal.
My objectives were to show by assembling affordable and high-end pieces that style is not a price tag or a label, and to create the most effortlessly stylish and inspiring looks.

Ways to personalize your look and to add seasonal colors. Now, as the weather is chilling, simply adding a bright scarf or some patterned socks to a look is the easiest way to carry along those warm-weather colors into Fall. The good news too, in this season of layering, you really cannot go overboard, even if it’s only a pair of glasses.
I stopped by The Rhode Show on WPRI12 to discuss Transtional Menswear.
Looks curated in the following order:
Military-Inspired Business Casual;

Boston Men’s S/S12 #BOSMen12
Last month we hosted #BOSMen12 at InterContinental Boston. Our goal for the best men’s fashion celebration for Boston was achieved with the support of Boston fashion community. The event drew near 300 people, which resulted to over 30,000 impressions on Twitter and Instagram, and 15 editorials. Check out photos and videos at DressCode Boston on Facebook. The audience was engaged and the best Spring/Summer men’s style were curated through DressCode Boston’s produced short-films, a live fashion shows, social media platforms, and a print look book. #BOSMen12 featured:

Jeff Lahens, men’s style curator at DressCode Boston
The man who styled the evening’s male models could have walked the runway himself. He wore a Reiss two-button suit and coral scarf with pieces from his own closet, including a Misura shirt of his own design, Allen Edmonds boots, and his favorite vintage glasses.
Jeff has a true appreciation for the classics: “I always admired the way my dad and my uncles dressed.”
His style in a handful of words? Personal, functional, effortless, uplifting, trend-proof, and dress-code-appropriate.
This designer and stylist’s list of spring staples includes reliable V-neck tees, pastel linen scarves, layering pieces like cardigans, and Tretorn shoes.
