Early '80s Futuristic Style

I thought that I would expose my musical/fashion influence du jour. As of right now, I really like the late 70s and early '80s style that many electro bands had. Alphaville's videos are amazing and you really get a feel for their aesthetic. Kraftwerk of course should not go unmentioned. Considered the first electronic band, Kraftwerk's style and music mimicked that of what the future might entail. Visions of the space race and robots always fill my mind when I put on their records or listed to their music. Last but not least, the Flock of Seagull's crazy style which could of possibly been influenced by seagulls, is very unique and fun. Frontman Mike Score wins the award for best hair. (Believe it or not, Score was a hairdresser before forming the band.) I not only love these guys' style, I love their music. Go check them out on youtube or something.

I leave you with a video link.

Tipped Detail Blazers

I decided to pick out a few blazers that I liked.

All of them feature this nice tipped detail. The first two are from Dolce & Gabanna and the last one is from I think the tipped detail really adds interest to the suits and really makes them stand out.

The Charming Gentleman

Hi. Thanks for stumbling upon my blog. I am currently a senior at the University of Texas at Austin majoring in French. I am an independent designer under my own label Démodé Fashion. As of now, I will graduate in May of this year and I am applying to a couple of fashion design programs, one of them being Menswear at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.

This blog will be dedicated to menswear including: current trends; designer profiles; "How to wear what."; and many other topics. Stay tuned for some exciting things to come.
