Loving Leather This Season

One of my favorite men’s accessories for this time of the year is a great leather watch. It not only tells time, but completes your look.

The Tsovet 38mm Watch with Leather Band has the quality of a Swiss movement, the classic style of a round face with clean numbers, and the elegance of a saddle brown, pebbled leather band. For $200, it can be dressed up or down.

Most men choose a belt for its function, but it also can be a stylish men’s accessory. With the added texture of the woven brown leather, the Anderson’s Woven Leather Belt is a great way to add some interest to a pair of pants. At $175 it may seem a little pricey, but the quality of the leather and Italian craftsmanship will be worth it.

As far as wallets go, I like the traditional bi-fold because it is less bulky and easier to find what you need. The J.W. Hulme Co. has one that is 100% cowhide, has 6 card slots with 2 pockets, and a lined cash compartment for $125. The rich color of the leather is a nod to its American construction.

Every business man needs a terrific briefcase. J.W. Hulme also makes the American Heritage Portfolio Briefcase for $695 that comes in the same rich leather with a wrap-around zip, a laptop sleeve, and exterior pockets. The rolled leather handles, shoulder strap, and brass hardware are the perfect accents.

More Ways to Customize Your Creations

When it comes to making your own clothing items, you need to have a way for people to get to know the creator. A terrific way to express your brand is through a custom made label. At http://www.clothinglabels4u.com, they have a line of custom labels to fit every budget. Unlike some of the other clothing label companies, Clothing Labels 4U also offers their custom label services with no set-up fees, low prices, fast service, and low minimum amounts for purchasing.

The Cadillac of the label selection is the custom woven label. You may choose from a selection of fabric like damask, taffeta, satin, and semi-damask. Unlike many competitors, at http://clothinglabels4u.com these deluxe fabric woven labels also come in an iron-on version for those who prefer the fabric labels, but want them to lie flat against the clothing item, instead of sewing them at the seams.

As well as the woven labels, Clothing Labels 4U offers a version in leather or pleather, just like those from your favorite pair of jeans, but you can have it personalized with your own logo or design.

For those customers who are looking for a more economical way to label their clothing creations, they may choose a printed label, which may be purchased on 100% cotton fabric, cotton twill, or 100% canvas. With the printed labels, it gives http://wwwclothing4u.com the ability to use images with intricate designs or high definition. They even use thermoplastic polyurethane, which are not only transparent, but also resistant to high temperatures.

At Clothing Labels 4U, you can even order rubber, silicone, or PVC tagless labels or Made in the USA, which are not offered by all label manufacturers, but expect to pay a little bit more for the Made in America process.

Cotton Duck

Cotton is popular because it is light, durable, and breathes (allows moisture to move away from the body). The term “duck” refers to the way in which the cotton is woven. Cotton duck fabric is exceptionally durable (it was once used for ship sails), second only to leather in its ability to block wind, and one of the softer fabrics used in workwear (it gets softer with washing).

Women’s Fashion Advice – If Fall Were a Fabric it Would be LEATHER

There is nothing more in now than leather, sorry vegans (there’s always faux!). Leather purses, leather boots, leather jackets, etc etc.

Don’t pack up your warm weather wardrobe just yet. Adding leather allows you to wear your favorite spring looks right into autumn. Toughen up a sweet summer dress with a leather jacket like this Michael Kors snap-tab collar jacket. Or add some knee-high boots and a structured blazer to your favorite cotton dress for instant fall glamour.

Men’s Fashion Trends – Men’s Bracelets for Fall 2013: Leather is in!

While I was looking at the up and coming trends for Fall 2013, I noticed the theme of leather in men’s jewelry, as well as men’s fashion. It was particularly prominent in the bracelet category. There were several designers that have taken the “earthiness” of great leather and paired it with metals, producing a mixed media style that has appeal to lovers of both kinds of material. What makes a bracelet special, and different than the Tag Heuer watches’ and other fancy watches’ bands, is this allowance for mixing styles without the possibility of clashing with a face.
