For those of you that follow my blog, you know how much I love men's fashion. I mean I absolutely adore styling and shopping with guys. I just get a thrill out of suggesting items to men and getting them to try on things they would never imagine themselves wearing. Every single time I've done that, the guys I dressed were pleasantly surprised at the fact that they actually did like what I picked out. So much so that they would go ahead and buy it the next time they entered the store. Sometimes they may have resisted the idea initially but the fact that they go out of their way to buy it in the end, stands to say something. It brings such joy to me to be able to open up a guy's idea of style and fashion and be able to inspire them to dress in ways they would have never done so before.
Aside from that, I still enjoy looking at men's clothing. I'm fascinated by magazines like GQ and I'm even buying a subscription to it. I just love watching men dress well. In North America people seem to think that a man who likes fashion is either metrosexual or homosexual and I believe that mentality needs to change. I know people in the fashion industry think otherwise, but the general public still seems to feel that fashion is a woman's domain and so many men are uncomfortable with dressing up in a fashionable manner. I hope that this blog serves to change this perspective for some of you out there.
OKAY, now enough of my rant. Let me introduce you to Ezra Constantine. I know some of you have never heard of this line but the name still rings a bell though, doesn't it? At least it should for you Canadian fashionistas and fashionistos. Ezra Constantine is the male counterpart of Greta Constantine. For those of you that don't know, Greta Constantine is a women's fashion label that was created by Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong. Finally, these men decided to create a men's line and VOILA, Ezra Constantine was born. Take a look at the first ever, Ezra Constantine collection, which was designed for the Spring/Summer 2010 season. The lookbook is like a mixture of the Jets from West Side Story and the gangs from two music videos - Beat It by Michael Jackson and Run This Town by Jay Z.
And I know ladies, the last two photos are just YUMMY!!!
Oh, and by the way, can someone get me those pants on the second picture above? I want them for myself...lol.
Hugs and Kisses,
