Enjoy this great read thanks to Fraquoh and Franchomme from the men’s style fashion blog, Style Attire. http://attireclub.org/2013/10/05/pop-color-stanley-lewis/
Since the beginning of this century, men’s fashion has taken off probably more than ever, but the world of stylish men still lacks a lot of products and is kind of empty compared to the one of women. In their conversations, many guys feel like they have a revelation each time they find out about a brand that’s original and creative that they can incorporate in their wardrobe. This is why we like to write about collections and brands we feel men will be happy to get to know and find their inspiration in.
Stanley Lewis is a brand that appeared exactly out of the wish to balance out the big world of women’s accessories with the almost nonexistent world of colorful men’s accessories. Since most brands create products for men that are very dark, the founders of SL had this incredible idea to cater to men who wish to wear more color. And we’re happy that they did.
The Ruby Flora Silver Cufflinks are an original piece.
The accessories created by Stanley Lewis are great for any guy and appropriate for many occasions, as you find one finds floral motifs, paisley, dots, and stripes ranging from the more traditional side to the regal and the playful. We like the ties, the pocket squares and the socks, which are available in vibrant hues as well as subtle, but very rich and wonderful tones.
A great pattern always goes with a nice solid color that finds itself in the pattern.
In a way, we feel that Stanley Lewis is a brand that would fit perfectly a guy who knows what he wants and who wishes to express himself through his appearance, but we would foremost recommend it to younger men who are learning about style and who will learn a lot from them about colors and fabrics.
A color combination often found in nature. There are ways of speaking about who you are in a more subtle way.
The Italy-made products of SL come in such vivid colors and match so easily and nice that they are in themselves a lesson of style and colorful elegance. Color is the key-word here and we know that this is what so many men wish for.
SL offers combos of ties and socks. That’s such a guy thing.
Why should you wear color though? We have a say that goes: “In fashion, the ordinary should always be extraordinary”. Isn’t that a good enough reason?

The Stanley Lewis collection of fine gentlemen’s accessories are all made in Italy by the world’s most admired and respected craftsmen. Know with confidence, you will be stepping out in style and luxury each time you wear a piece from this exclusive collection.
To begin with, the Stanley Lewis men’s tie collection has the world’s most acclaimed silk maker to thank for their unsurpassed quality. Located in Como, Italy, Stanley Lewis mens ties are woven using the finest silk and expertise. The silk yarn grade is A6, which is simply, the best. The silk used in creating these luxurious mens ties is four ply pure silk requiring 30% more volume to achieve the generous thread count. It is this feature which gives the silk the beautiful feeling and texture of the best in the world. Finally, the silk is finished using only natural techniques such as steam and brushing so that the end product is the finest, softest available. Each of these men’s ties is driven by an intense passion by our makers in Como, who handstitch each tie to perfection.
Now onto keeping our feet dapper and comfortable: the Stanley Lewis men’s sock collection certainly has the Wow! factor. Apart from the most extensive and amazing styles, Stanley Lewis mens socks are made in Brecia, Italy by THE leader in the hoisery industry. It took nearly 5 years for Stanley Lewis to finally source a maker who would break with traditional values and help in creating a sock collection sure to impress even the most conservative. It took many months of trial and error before finding a solution that guaranteed Stanley Lewis would NEVER, EVER produce dull and boring men’s socks. Using the finest mercerized cotton blend, Stanley Lewis men’s socks stand alone from the rest.
This is probably enough information overload for the moment. In the next Stanley Lewis blog we shall discuss the unique qualities of the silver cufflink collection, the extensive pocket square collection, and that amazing men’s scarf collection.
Until next time…

We all appreciate how difficult it can be to add style and personality to a man’s outfit. We often get caught up in the confusion of what is right in fashion and lose our way altogether. It can be as easy however, as adding the right men’s accessories to an outfit to turn what was a drab and boring look into a complete fashion statement.
Stanley Lewis men’s accessories offer the perfect solution to your daily fashion dilemmas. The online site offers a ‘Harmonize With’ section which gives you everchanging suggestions on what to wear to maximize your wardrobe. If you are in search of a new men’s tie for instance, the Stanley Lewis website makes recommendations as to what is the perfect pocket square, socks, cufflinks and scarf to coordinate and bring out the best in fashion. This simple yet practical feature makes it almost impossible to fail.
Have fun when selecting your men’s accessories - take the navy from that classical striped silk tie and pair it with paisley socks which may have navy as a base color and red featured in the design. Add a splash of colour with a red silk or linen pocket square and finally, a pair of silver cufflinks with red or navy. How simple it all sounds and how simple it really is. But as a fall back, remember the Stanley Lews ‘Harmonize With’ feature is available on all product pages of the online site, and guarantees you to have the best men’s accessories in town!

We all know how difficult it is to inject just the right amount of color into an outfit, particularly when it comes to business attire. Subtle accents in men’s accessories are the perfect way to transform that dark and dreary 3 piece into a number set to impress.
One key men’s accessory which sets the tone with ease is a good quality silk tie. This is a great starting point and can be the center piece for selecting the right men’s accessories. Hone into one of the prominent colors of the tie and use this as your base. From here on in, it’s a breeze. Say you have teamed a red and blue paisley tie with your charcoal ‘Boardwalk Empire’ double breasted number. First decision is to pick a color from the silk tie which will guide you when selecting your other men’s accessories.
In this case, let’s say we have selected red – why not then pair a silk pocket square which also features red or maybe even blue? It could be a contrasting design such as striped, polka or the like. The main aim is for the pocket square to compliment the silk tie and not compete with it.
Likewise when selecting your designer socks – a solid red or red with a subtle blue design would work a treat. Men’s socks today have become an essential part of dressing and are often the hero in men’s accessories. The selection of men’s socks can say more to the world than you will ever know – remember just because you cannot see your socks doesn’t mean for a second that no one else can! There is nothing worse than gazing at a well dressed suit complete with all the right men’s accessories, right down to that designer watch and ipad, and then Woah!!!! There’s those socks…often tired, black or navy, pilled and BORING! This indicates immediate failure in the fashion stakes and it doesn’t matter how expensive that bespoke suit was or those custom made Italian leather shoes, nothing will save you from those socks
Well we haven’t finished yet with men’s accessories…what about a pair of handmade silver cufflinks to add a bit of sparkle and class to those shirt cuffs. The market is saturated with cheap and guady cufflinks made in China – select quality Italian handmade cufflinks. These are usually of unique design and often created by one of the world’s most respected jewelers. Again harmonize your men’s cufflinks with the rest of the accessories is simple - follow the rules of accent colours, although in the case of men’s cufflinks, a pair of gold or silver cufflinks could fit the bill perfectly.
And now we come to men’s scarves … men’s scarves can be the pièce de résistance when it comes to tying an outfit together with most reputable fashion houses offering a plethora of stunning and colourful designs. The rules are almost unlimited with mixing and matching designs within your accessories but always remember the golden rule to keep with the accent colour. So when selecting your men’s scarf make sure the highlight color works back with the rest of the men’s accessories you are wearing.
That’s it…your done! Now take out that classical bespoke suit which has rarely excited you and look to it for adventure. It’s as easy as men’s accessories.

We are all in agreement that wearing quality men’s socks is an important element in dressing today. So exactly how do we select the right pair of designer men’s socks?
In previous blogs we have focused on what to look for when selecting the right quality of mens socks but now we need to focus on selecting the right color and design and how to pair your designer socks to an outfit. Men’s socks are the perfect accessory to add color to a wardrobe. Do not be afraid, it works if done correctly AND it is as easy as one, two, three to do. All you need is confidence. If you are selecting designer socks to wear with your business attire, pick an accent color from you tie, shirt or pocket square, and use this as the prime color for your socks. For example, if you are decked out in a sharp charcoal grey suit, and have paired a soft blue stripe shirt, red, blue and gold tie, and a red pocket square, the best shade to focus on bringing it all together would be red. Make it all balance – bring an accent color from the top of your attire and use this in your socks. How easy is this? The same applies with casual wear – although you would be less likely to be wearing a men’s tie, perhaps a scarf has been accessorized, or, pick a color from your shirt as the accent. It is easier if you are wearing a sports jacket as naturally you would also be wearing a pocket square! Always remember, ” A suit or a sports coat with an empty breast pocket is unfinished business.” In this case it would be the pocket square which would direct you with your choice of sock color and design.
Experiment and have some fun with your selection. If you are wearing a paisley silk tie, try pairing it with stripe mens socks. If pocket square has polka dots, try stripe, paisley or floral mens socks. Getting the color right is the first step and from then on just jump in and have fun. Selecting the right pair of designer men’s socks is a real conversation starter and are the perfect way to add verve and color to any outfit. Go on, try it, I dare you

We have already covered the importance of fibre when selecting high quality men’s socks, but what about the design. Gone are the days of boring black or navy sock; say hello to the plethora of colourful and exciting socks for men on offer today. But again proceed with caution when making your selection and steer away from what is often referred to as “personality socks”. Select quality socks that harmonize with your wardrobe. For example, men wearing socks with smiley faces are hardly going to be taken seriously. Striped socks, paisley socks, floral socks and other intricate designs can harmonize beautifully with even the most staid of business suits. The key is the coordination.
Select your men’ socks as you select your tie – the same rules apply. If you are wearing a dark charcoal suit you may choose a hot pink paisley silk tie to wear. Now for the socks, you have two options here: you may choose to replicate the design of your tie in your socks which is what Stanley Lewis men’s sock collection offers, or you may choose to harmonize a different design to your tie but with the same color pallate. For example, charcoal, pink, black, cream and white are great colors to pair with the tie.
Today stepping out in style has never been easier with the extensive collection of colourful and intricately designed socks for men. Whether it be paisley socks or striped socks or even the more conservative sphere design, the Stanley Lewis collection of men’s socks has something for everyone. And if you are looking for that perfect gift you can now shop for socks for men with confidence – all Stanley Lewis socks come perfectly presented in a handmade gift box tied with satin ribbon!
