Harry's - Spring 2014 'Paradise Found' Lookbook

It is no mistake that when one ponders the optimal and ideal grooming product, one tends to imagine the razor-edged grooming instruments at Harry’s. While most men are hasty when it comes to removing the irritating hairs that encompass our bodies, we forget that there is quite the luxurious experience when it comes to the art of shaving. Part of that experience is the visual quality of the instrument.

Harry’s recently introduced a brand new spring lineup, and we must admit, it is quite impeccable. Introducing eye-enticing colors like nelson orange, desert yellow, palm green and shore gray, these products are sure to compel you to shave—even though beards are awesome. Please refer to Harry’s for the four limited edition razors. 

Also, you can enjoy an irresistible lookbook showcasing the razors after the jump; just in case you may be indecisive.

Trend Review: Spring 2014

Spring, especially the commencement of the season, can be a tough one for the closet. With the day beginning in the 40s and ending in the 60s and 70s, it’s hard to find an outfit versatile enough to keep up with the weather. Trends for spring don’t help much either. 

Floral, white and pastels abound hold contrast to the dark, warm and thick winter pieces you’ve grown accustomed to. Luckily, there is a way to combat this dilemma and add the top spring trends into closet allowing you to seamlessly transition from winter. But don’t pull out those white jeans just yet. Baby steps, baby steps. 

One trend that seems to make a continual appearance in spring is floral. What has always been a staple in a woman’s closet, floral has seen a huge upswing this past year in menswear. Catching on late in the game, men are more proud than ever to incorporate a floral piece into their wardrobe.

This can be done in several ways. For those who haven’t quite caught drifted into floral, it’s best to start small. Not only does this subtly ease you into the trend, it appears in the details adding a crisp clean finish to your outfit. 

For the corporate man, try a floral pocket square. Gant offers subdued floral pocket squares in muted colors while Hugh & Crye offers more prominent colors and in-your-face florals. 

Everyday casual wear can also include florals in muted ways. But for those just getting into the movement, it’s best to start from bottom to top. Socks are the best way to add that little extra to your outfit. Duchamp London stock several styles of floral socks ranging from wacky to wonderfully pleasant. A style for every man, socks can add that perfect pop of floral. 

Men accustomed to florals can get their flower fix by adding a button up or T-shirt with an all-over print underneath a bulky jacket that can easily be shown once the weather warms up throughout the day. Marc Jacobs, Prada, GucciSaint Laurent for MR PORTER and Dries Van Noten each provide the flower power a man needs to make a statement. 

Shorts are getting in on the action, too. For some shorts are a million miles out of the mind right now, but now is the time to be thinking about it. When you bring bold pattern to a pair of shorts, it’s best to let them be the statement in the outfit. Tropical shorts were popping up, not just on the runways, but on the onlookers, as well. What’s best to wear with these shorts? Anything simple. Black T-shirt with a black blazer work flawlessly. Any other basic colors will work as long as they’re not too bright. Stay away from yellows, reds, greens, and bright blues.  

Spring is a season of transition, for people and their closets. This is always the best time to try out new things for style. The layers are coming off, and people are growing more adventurous with their style. Whether you’re an adventurous or simple man, floral is something not to be scared of. Embrace the flower power, show your bohemian side.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau for Esquire UK

Chances are you have witnessed actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in perhaps more of a suit of armour-esque type of environment. However, Waldau, better known as Jaime Lannister in HBO’s fantasy drama Game of Thrones, exchanged his chain mail for JCrew; something that is quite less-savage. 

It seems Waldau was able to escape King’s Landing to be featured in the April 2014 Issue of Esquire UK, in an impeccable visual that appears to be otherworldly—well, for Jaime Lannister, that would seem to be the case. Photographed  by James Dimmock, Waldau is photographed in a rustic, yet vacant locale; accompanied with wall-to-wall exposed brick, and raw floor panelling that appeals to the hues of blue Waldau dons throughout entirety of the visual. 

Please enjoy Nikolaj Coster-Waldau with urbane-sophistication in a visual for Esquire UK.

Jared Leto: Threads on Threads

leto.jpg

It is only mere days before our eyes witness the plethora of dapperness and gentlemanly prestige gracing the red carpet for the 86th Annual Academy Awards. We eagerly await the threads worn by Michael B. Jordan, Bradley Cooper, and Tom Hiddleson; however, there is a particular piece of thread(s) that we are in prime anticipation of: Jared Leto’s hair.

Will the triumphant mane deliver ombre opulence? Slicked back in a cascading pony-tail? As claimed by Into the Gloss who sat down with Leto’s hair stylist Chase Kusero, it looks like the notorious man-bun will debut once again.

'"When I see him, we'll play with his hair for some photos -- maybe a high bun, maybe half up, half down -- and then go from there," Kusero told Into the Gloss. "The big thing on my shoulders right now is if the hair is gonna be up or down -- I'm voting up, because we've only done it maybe once before. I want to do something with a side part this time, something cleaner. And I want to try to get a bun that's nice and small, more like a traditional knot."'

Kusero continues, '“[Jared and I] were going to shock everybody and show up for the Academy Awards with a haircut, but it’s looking so good that we don’t really want to cut it. We’ll discuss it this weekend. It’s really important that he doesn’t look like a woman—that’s the biggest challenge. It’s been hard to have him not end up on the ‘best hair’ lists—and that definitely hasn’t been our intention. We've even had all these actresses, like Olivia Wilde and Rachel Bilson and Julia Roberts, asking about his hair. He does have amazing hair, so it’s kind of inevitable. He’s definitely going to have long hair at the Oscars."'

We are quite inquisitive as to how this will translate to his ensemble. Be sure to catch the 86th Annual Academy Awards this Sunday.

Flaunt Magazine | Travis Fimmel

travis7.jpg

Australian actor and former model Travis Fimmel is no newcomer when it comes to success: e.g., Calvin Klein campaigns, History Channel’s hit show ‘Vikings,’ and future blockbuster action film ‘Warcraft (set for release in 2016),’ based on the ever-so-popular MMORPG series of games. Whether Fimmel is showcasing his extensive Norse Aussie locks, or possibly something a little more reserved, with the display of his Calvins; he is definitely the man worthy of ‘Glory and Gore.’

Travis Fimmel is showcased in a feature for Flaunt magazine, photographed by Tony Duran; styling by Aaron Cassou; with grooming by Marissa Machado. Delivering pieces from Bottega Veneta, John Varvatos, Dolce & Gabbana, and Giorgio Armani (photography: Tony Duran; styling: Aaron Cassou; grooming: Marissa Machado), Fimmel is deemed quite relaxed. Whether it be with his trademark, casual, free-flowing mane, or quite possibly his informal physical demeanor; it is quite apparent that Fimmel is the consummate man’s man. 

With words written by E. Ryan Ellis, the interview is quite precise in revealing the prime details of Fimmel’s current and upcoming film and television debuts, and reoccurring projects:

On ‘Warcraft:’

‘“He’s currently in the benumbed west Canadian port city filming Duncan Jones’ Warcraft: a film of epic proportion and expectation. But despite the video game-based film, one gets the feeling Fimmel is the kind of lad that would much rather be chopping wood than mashing plastic buttons on a gaming controller. “I’d never heard of it,” he freely admits.”’

On ‘Vikings:’

'“It’s in History Channel’s Vikings that Fimmel has found his niche, receiving acclaim for his portrayal of the contemplative but merciless, Ragnar Lothbrok, a deep-thinking maniac from Viking Age Europe. There is a swagger to his character that is maintained somewhere within Fimmel.”’

‘“When I ask about his association with Ragnar, he states, “Every guy that I know that fights is always the quietest guy in the room; I just try to think more than talk. You’ll always learn more by listening rather than being the loudest guy in the room. And whatever you do, you do because you enjoy it, so I try to make my character enjoy fighting.”’

 

For more on the interview and Travis Fimmel, please refer Flaunt.

Prepare for season 2 of 'Vikings,' February 27th, only on the History Channel.

Details Magazine - Aaron Paul: Beyond Breaking Bad

aaron-paul-frontface-varticle-embed.jpg

While the resolution of the award-winning television classic ‘Breaking Bad’ has come to a closure of sorrowful “goodbye”s and “farewell”s; we cannot help to need an additional dose of cast member Aaron Paul (Jesse Pinkman).

The ‘Breaking Bad’ actor covers the February 2014 issue of Details magazine. Paul sits down with the magazine where he delineates on a plethora of occurrences that include meeting his wife Lauren Parsekian at Coachella, on ‘Better Call Saul’ spinoff, on pleading for his character, and AMC executives doubting Paul for this infamous role. 

Araon Paul shares with Details:

On meeting his wife Lauren Parsekian at Coachella: “Not on drugs…normally, I drink a lot at those festivals. But we were just so distracted with the high that was happening between us. It’s unexplainable. I told her that night I was going to marry her. I did. I told her that. I knew what she was all about. I mean, come on, she runs an anti-bullying nonprofit called Kind Campaign.”

On Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spinoff: “Both Bryan [Cranston] and I want to be a part of that. If they’ll have us.”

On pleading for his character Jesse on Breaking Bad: “I wrote an e-mail to Vince before we started shooting the final eight episodes—a plea for Jesse, a love letter. I never give my two cents when it comes to Breaking Bad, because why would I? I’m just the actor, and what they’re doing is perfect, you know? But I just felt like I would always regret it if I didn’t at least throw them a pitch on how I wanted Jesse to go out. So I gave a few different ideas of how I thought he would kill himself. I didn’t want anybody else taking his life. The letter was awful. It was very morbid, and I’m so happy they didn’t listen. I’d rather Jesse just kind of ride off into the sunset like he did.”

On AMC executives doubting him for the infamous role: "They thought I was too old," "My spine started to hurt when they told me that.”
