The New Rules


For our final post of 2015 we thought a little last minute gift inspiration was necessary. Men’s fashion have come a long way since the bygone days of sloppy cargo pants as acceptable polite company attire. We have included fail-proof presents for the gentleman in your life with refined tastes. For the man in your life who likes the youthful and unexpected try COMMES DES GARCONS. French for “like boys,” they are a Japanese fashion label with a laid-back contemporary feel featuring a little tongue-in-cheek humour in their designs. Their classic cardigan featuring their logo is a great example of their aesthetic. Or go with their leather zip pouch or their unisex fragrance with notes of black pepper, black tea, and tree moss.

For the discerning gentleman in your life that wants nothing but the best, we suggest a watch by renowned Swiss architect, painter, and designer Max Bill. A master in the art of balancing form and function; the body of work he has left behind continues to be an inspiration. The 027/4002.44 Max Bill Automatic features a date and a metal bracelet. It is a beautiful streamlined design, simple and elegant at a slim 10mm. The kind of watch a man would wear for a lifetime.

For something just as discerning but a little more urban, get the sneakerhead in your life a pair of Raf Simons kicks. The black Stan Smith Adidas leather low-top sneakers are a understated cool that have an effortless confidence about them.

For those on a budget, as always Zara is offering some great fashionable pieces. Go with something classic and easy to wear, like this chambray button-up with polka dots or these cuffed skinny jeans.

FFF will be back in the new year with fresh ideas and the usual sass. We hope that you, our lovely readers will have a very happy and safe holiday, and that all your wishes and resolutions come true.
