Mens Style: Dressing up isn’t a bad thing

 

Guys, dressing up for a date or party this holiday season does not mean throwing on some khakis and a polo shirt. Standards need to be re-visited and updated to our modern style and fast paced lives. Wearing suits out on the town is a lost part of mens fashion and sorely missed. With the influence of shows like Jersey Shore and young celebrities wearing  jeans and T-shirts, thinking diamond necklaces makes it classy, men have become lazy. Our women still make an effort, they still put on a dress, heels and do their hair and make up. When did Ed Hardy or any similar brands become excepted and for that matter why?
