Fashion Fridays: Bonobos Fall Style Challenge!

We recently partnered with the luxury men’s brand Bonobos for their Fall Style Challenge. We were given a choice of a few lifestyle shots of their blazer and men’s suit line and asked to design a coordinating fashion board. We chose The Nottingham Blazer for it’s sophisticated and approachable style. Our style story starts with a successful dad that has a fashionable wife, young daughter and newborn son. This is a perfect combo for holiday family pictures or parties.

Dwight Fenton, Bonobos VP of Design states “Fit is the most important detail for a suit. Marry that with classic color options and quality fabric, and you have a great looking, versatile suit for every occasion.” 

Fenton’s simple suit tips to find the right fit:
• Fit starts with the shoulders: The jacket should grab your shoulders snuggly but not be overly tight. If the shoulders fit, pretty much anything else can be adjusted.
• Length matters: To determine the appropriate length, you should be able to cup the bottom of the suit with your arms by your side.
• Show some shirt: A flexible but general rule of thumb is to have a quarter-inch of your shirt cuff showing. If you’re wearing a heavier cuff, like a French cuff, you may want to show a little more.

Here are the fashion picks and where you can purchase them: 1. BONOBOS The Nottingham Blazer, $398, 2. Mama’s & Papas Boys Limited Edition Houndstooth Blazer, $55.99, 3. Gap Oxford Button-up Bodysuit, $19.95, 4. Mally Designs Sailor Mally Mocs, $45.00, 5. Jacadi Infant Boys’ Stretch Corduroy Trousers, $56.00, 6. J. Crew Girls Cashmere Cardigan, $138.00, 7. J. Crew Girls Sequin Flower Dress in Organdy (glamorous pink), $99.99, 8. Stride Rite Mira, $49.00, 9. Sue Wong Pleated Bustier Embroidered Dress in Cobalt, $459.00, 10. Ivanka Trump ‘Sophia’ Pump (Nordstrom Exclusive)–grey plaid suede, $109.95
