A double-breasted Burberry London coat in hard-wearing cotton-gabardine is a sartorial classic. With a sharp cut and leather buckles, this piece looks as smart now as it did when Burberry first started producing trenches over 100 years ago. Tie the belt behind the back for a nonchalant air.

A dark velvet blazer is always an elegant option for the evening. The velvet blazer is just as versatile as a standard equivalent, meaning it shouldn’t be confined to the party season or the boardroom but should be let out to play on the weekends and on nights out too.
Whether it’s for a day in the office, a black tie event or the festive party season, the velvet blazer should always be given due consideration. It looks just as good when worn with the full sartorial effort as with a pair of jeans.
Christmas season is upon us and with that comes lots of events and festivities. We are going to look at outfits perfect for home parties to downtown events. It’s really the time of year when our wardrobes have to work very hard. I’m going to show you some outfit ideas, with a little help from Nordstrom and Façonnable that gonna help you pass this season with ease, as there is a huge collection of wardrobe staples that can be translated in any style with the right styling.
Our first stop is Ambrogio. Ambrogio has to attend a festive dinner party with his family at home this Christmas. He wants to be chic and modern while remaining casual and comfortable, so that he is gonna be able to eat as much as he wants from the Christmas treats, and it’s gonna probably be a lot.
He probably will wear a pair of straight leg jeans so that he is comfortable and be able to eat a lot because it is stretchy. A pair of jeans is also great as it can totally work as a blank canvas. He could pair his jeans with a regular fit sport denim shirt and a red regular fit crewneck sweatshirt. This way he can show his modern approach with a denim on denim look while remaining festive and really casual with the red sweatshirt. He could finish his outfit with a lambskin bomber jacket in black and a pair of black leather Chelsea boots, just to add some “smart” edge.
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.
