Under Underwear Spring/Summer 2014

As much as I love my raw denim jeans, boots and 3 layers of clothes as soon as I get home I hurry and change in to more comfortable clothes. Under Underwear is a perfect example of great lounge wear (that can be worn out too) and underwear with soft fabrics and a variety of patterns that you'll run home to. Ladies, you'll be happy to know this collection is unisex, sizes run from XXS-XL. Below are a few of my favorite looks from their Spring/Summer 2014 collection.

Me encantan mis jeans, botas y abrigarme durante el invierno pero enseguida que llego a casa me pongo ropa mas comoda. Under Underwear es un buen ejemplo de ropa comoda para estar en casa (que tambien puedes ponerte para salir) y ropa interior con telas increiblemente suaves disponibles en una variedad de diseños. Buenas noticias chicas, esta colección es unisex, las tallas corren de XXS-XL. Los siguientes son algunos looks favoritos.

Joining The Army

Winter has been especially long this time around and with that a variety of weather conditions have been endured. 20 degree weather one day, rain the next, snowstorm the following day. That's when you see that one coat won't cut it. Now the temperature is getting milder and likewise you need a variety of jackets to meet the needs of the ever changing weather. Check out this cotton jacket from Authentic Apparel Group's U.S Army clothing line that is perfect for spring's cooler days. I've paired the jacket with True Religion jeans, UniQlo oxford shirt, vintage navy pinstripe vest and Tsubo shoes.

Authentic Apparel Group started back in 2013 a clothing line that would capture the essence of the U.S Army and the details their uniforms are known for but with a fashionable and modern point of view. 

At the Rubin Museum of Art: Michael Bastian Fall 2014

"In a world where the cultural differences between how men dress in different countries are blurring, the Japanese are emerging as the world's great 'editors', combining the best from all of the traditional menswear outposts in their own way, " - Michael Bastian

During New York Fashion Week at the Rubin Museum of Art Michael Bastian showcased his Fall 2014 collection. Throughout the collection you'll see a unique spin on American, Italian, and English tailoring all with the new generation of Japanese men in mind. The result is a collection that draws from a multicultural point of view. The following are a few of my favorites.

Double breasted blazer in black wash with deep red socks, yes please!

Interview- Peter Manning Five Eight | New York

Time and time again, I've pointed out on Adentro Style great menswear style. One of the things all these looks have in common is a great fit. When presented with the opportunity to interview Peter Manning from Peter Manning Five Eight | New York, I had to take it. He facilitates for men of a smaller stature (5'8'' or shorter) to have access to clothes made especially for them. Peter explained that it's not the same for a guy to buy a pair of khakis or jeans at a another store and hem them a few inches. You see, pants are made in such a way that your knees are supposed be at a certain height and the closure of the pants are also supposed to be a specific measurement. By hemming them you are altering the overall design of the pants and they just wont fit right. At Peter Manning every detail and measurement is taken in to account to make perfect fitting jeans and khakis. As we continued to talk, I asked him about shorter guys wearing stripes, especially striped suits. Peter recommends to stay away from them all together unless it's a very subtle pinstripe. With the wintery season still here he mentioned that his must-have of the season are sweaters. There's seriously nothing like a great fitting sweater especially when you have to layer. You'll find a great selection at the site too! Now, if you are wondering were the Five Eight on the company name came from- it's Peter's height. This clothes line is very personal to him as he knows what it is to have limited selection of clothes available to shorter guys. One of the my favorite tidbits from our conversation is when he explained the nature of the site. The Peter Manning Five Eight | New York website does not sell collections this allows for items to be available in a more organic way and reflective of the needs of the customers. It was a pleasure to speak with Peter and learn about his great company. If you are a gentleman 5'8'' or shorter do you self a favor, don't wait check out the site!
