Bloggers Share How to Be a Sharp Dressed Man

RHJ450NEverybody knows that sharp-dressed men get noticed more – but not every man knows how to pull off a sophisticated look. So, we hit the web and challenged some of the best fashion bloggers out there to put together a few tips and designs using items from our collection that would help the men in their lives (and their readers’ lives) spruce up their style. From dress shirts to accessories, these bloggers delivered.

Boardwalk Empire Style Challenge

Much of the fashion that took place in that era is similar to our pieces here at Paul Fredrick, vintage classics, but with a modern twist. We reviewed the posts and thought they were all very well done. Here are a few of our favorites:

Summer Wedding Season has Returned

This weekend marks the official start of summer. With the return of warm and sunny weather you can expect things such as summer concerts, clam bakes, and graduation parties. It also signals the start of the biggest wedding season–and you should absolutely take the time of year into consideration when putting an outfit together.

Steal His Style: Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio has been around the acting game since he was just a little guy. He is no longer little and has grown into a successful, well respected, and very fashionable man. When he arrived at the 2014 Golden Globe awards wearing a sleek, classic tuxedo, Leo proved to the world once again that he’s a man who knows how to dress. Not flashy but not overly conservative, either, Leo tends toward the simple yet classic look. He is unafraid to subtly mix things up when the occasion calls for it and is always catching people’s eye no matter the event.
