Cole Haan

“Cole Haan is one of my favorite menswear shoe brands and every guy should have at least one great pair of Chukka Boots to wear during the week or on the weekends. This Original Grand Chukka is not only super comfortable (trust me, I know. I have about 4 pairs of chukka’s), but you’re able to dress it up or dress it down depending on where you’re headed. Switch them out for your everyday trendy sneaker and you’ll be sure to get some great compliments.”

“The classic oxford shoe is always great to have if you’re working in an everyday business environment, but take it one step further with this double-monk oxford. The double buckle really makes a statement and can be the one item that ties your suit look together. You’ll have everyone in the office talking…in a good way.”



“When I’m out and about in the city, I see so many different types of backpacks on guys. My thought is, if you’re going to rock the backpack look, make sure you’ve got the right pack to show that you’re still stylish, but your practical. This Coach Backpack which is exclusive to Bloomingdales in a rich two-tone leather construction is clean and classic. It can take you from work to the gym in no time. Who said backpacks are only for the “cool” kids in school? Break the rules. There’s no time outs with this piece.”

“If there’s one thing you’re going to need this winter, it’s the pea coat. This Burberry Brit Eckford Wool Cashmere Coat can go with ANY outfit. It’s a great to wear over layers in the colder winter months. It’s also so versatile that you can wear it during the day or if you’re headed out the door on a date in the evening. The cashmere will add a nice warm layer to your outfit, but keep you feeling effortlessly cool when she leans in for a kiss to stay warm.”
