The other day my sister and I a walk downtown and everything looked so much brighter. We looked better around us and there they were, Christmas lights. There were Christmas lights everywhere. Christmas. Christmas is just round the corner and what does always come with Christmas? Gifts, of course. Here I am now wearing my new Façonnable vest and sweater, one of my favorite pair of jeans and my brogue boots and doing my Christmas gift list. This year’s list is almost ready. Now I have to go shopping. Well, I wish I could go, but there is no time, so I have to choose an alternative, Nordstrom online.
I don’t know about you but shopping for the men of my life, can be difficult. They are so important to me and different, although they all have something in common, their spin on classic style. A style born in details. As I am searching in Nordstrom something for them I cannot ignore Façonnable. Façonnable in Nordstrom has a great variety of casual shirts, jeans, outerwear, pants, sweaters and vests that you cannot ignore.
Façonnable started taking the form that has today in the late 60’s by Mr. A. Goldberg, He first created a small men’s collection with colorful designs, suptuous fabrics and timeless elegance. He expanded his business the next three decades through authenticity, instinct and talent. In 1988, Façonnable and Nordstrom met. Beginning in the early 1990’s Façonnable expanded in U.S. via Nordstrom. In 2000 Nordstrom purchased Façonnable SAS and founder Mr. A. Goldberg retired. In summer 2007 M1 Group engaged in a number of diverse activities, purchased Façonnable and helped the brand expand even more. Today, the brand has over 500 retail customers worldwide and products include high quality men’s and women’s apparel and accessories.
Look around. Everywhere you turn is a headache of speed. It’s everywhere that you go. Look around. You try what you can to be punctual. When all else fails and you long to be, something more organized than you are today. I know a place where you can find help. It’s called Graphic Image and here’s what it is for. (Modified lyrics from Madonna’s song, Vogue)
Every nowadays man has a lot of obligations to fulfill. He has places to go, places to be and above all he has to be punctual in the chaos. Graphic Image is a well-known style, as its style is their brand, for its diaries, notebooks and agendas. All of their writing journals possess the same three key ingredients – a functional and refined writing text paper, the smyth-sewn binding and a simple graphic design – all combined to define the books as distinctly and indisputably Graphic Image.
Summer is over. So many memories were created. Memories about sun and sea. Memories of bright outfits and great exhibitions. Exhibitions about cars and music. Exhibitions about art and fashion. One of my favorite exhibitions that I always have in my mind is the “Artist/Rebel/Dandy: Men of Fashion” exhibition at RISD museum in Providence. The dandies, finally, got their spotlight with a show focusing on the garments, bespoke tailoring and flair of their style from the 18th century to present From the discreet sophistication and consummate elegance to the romantics and revolutionaries the piece that is my absolute favorite is the trench coat. A coat so versatile and timeless. A coat for fall rainy days like the ones that we have now.
What a better way to treat yourself for this season change than a new trench coat. Trench coats are investment pieces and you need time to search and find the perfect one. But if you do not have the time to go shopping then you can go at an online mall, just a click away, where the search is much faster. One of the very best e-commerce sites for your fashionable choices is Nordstrom. Nordstrom is an American upscale fashion retailer, founded by John W. Nordstrom and Carl F. Wallin and its headquarters are in Seattle. It begun as a shoe retailer and now there are 252 Nordstrom stores plus their online store and their inventory has expanded to include clothing, accessories, handbags, jewelry, cosmetics, fragrances and even wedding and home furnishing. So it is a great gateway for some regular or some online shopping.
What a better way to treat yourself than a new Burberry trench coat. When you think about trench coats the first brand that comes in mind is Burberry, well it does in mine. Trench coats are the most famous pieces of Burberry since its very beginning. Trench coats were designed by the founder Thomas Burberry. Burberry is a British luxury fashion house, distributing clothing, fashion accessories and licensing fragrances. The most widely copied trademark of it is no other than its distinctive tartan pattern. The company has branded stores and franchises around the world and also sells through concessions in third-party stores. Last but certainly not least, Burberry was the 98th most valuable brand in the world the year 2009 according to Business Weekly.
