TREND: Men these days are looking every bit as styled these days on the big and small screen. In fact, they’ve added a very stylish retro element to their wardrobes that make us look forward to not only the show plots but to what they’re wearing on that week’s episode.
On the big screen, James Bond is making another much-anticipated appearance in “Quantum of Solace” which opens today.
Bonds over the years have served as inspirations since the sixties for men.
The small screen, has recently served as a source of sartorial inspiration for men.
Winner for most stylish TV male stars - “ENTOURAGE”!
We love to hate “Ari” and we simply love the unjustly abused “Lloyd”. What they have in common is a natty, polished look.
Below, some suggestions to that forever puzzling question, “WHAT do I get the men in my life that say they don’t want anything without going broke?” Unless you’re in the position to buy him a really cool gift such as one of the cars or one of a kind gadgets James Bond gets to play with, you may want to consider the options highlighted below.
The look: Laid-back LA movie star glam with 60s references.
