Darren Criss from GLEE fame wore a custom Richard Chai suit with perfect plaid print with green and blue hues.
Went perfectly with the theme. He looks youthful and edgy.
WE really dig the black tie on black shirt vibe (we’re seeing it everywhere and going with the “Mono-Color” block trend where you wear one color head to toe in different textures).
At the 2013 Met Gala, Psy wore a red and black micro-checked tuxedo jacket (CROPPED - which is so clever styling because the man is short and adds illusion of height to his frame) over a white shirt and black pants complete with his signature bow tie and sunglasses.
Kanye West in Givenchy. The high neck shirt and simple yet effective black suit just makes the man look like an dope version of a cooples ad. Meaning = He nailed it.
Tom Brady - Sure, I mean who need to try when you have a super model on your arm. But.. Tom brings the fashion guns blazing and embraces the PUNK theme with color. Blue suits are a huge trend for 2013 in menswear.
One of the WORST DRESSED at the Met Gala - Sorry to be a hater -
Tiger Woods - Brother has game, but definitely not in the fashion courts.
The boxy jacket and clunky pants remind us of the bad parts of the 80’s and awkward scenes from Glengarry Glen Ross.

ATTENTION TOP 10 #TOPSWAG Entrants, Csquared Menswear Fans, #TOPSWAG supporters and stylers around SA!
Your 2012 VVIP Experience Starts Here..
After almost a month of intense campaigning and moments of intense style and #TOPSWAG.. the exciting and suspenseful Csquared #TOPSWAG Style Icon Search Refreshed by Peroni will be soon coming to a thrilling, heart-pumping conclusion:
Something I do every Sunday, is reflect on the week I had and think about the week ahead. Most of the time I make mental notes on how I am going to spend it being happy, feeling good and going forward in life.
This Sunday, I couldn’t help wonder what men of lesser fortune and of a different era worried or rejoiced about every Sunday. Was it war? Was it food and shelter for their wife and children? Or was it just a wish for a pair of good shoes under their weary feet to prepare them for the journey ahead? I figured that their thoughts would have been not too far from my qualms as well…Is my career stable? Am I happy in my relationships? Am I going fast enough in an upward trajectory in life to achieve my goals?…
I believe every man experiences different obstacles and triumphs in their daily lives. However different we are in generation, race, class or sexuality, we all walk that long unpredictable journey called life, one step at a time.
So… my Sunday Style thought to you, would be to hold steadfast, smile, and appreciate this pair of well crafted Imai Hiroki chocolate cap toed brogues. Keep this image in mind as it might be handy for your week ahead!
In times of social media; friendships, dating, flirting, love and hate are all manifesting in quite different ways lol. Check out this popular song from Knife Party.. hilariously cool.
Didn’t know whether to laugh, cry, roll on the floor or curl up into a ball and start rocking when I heard this track! Anyways.. enjoy the track, fist pump it - I’ll know I’ll be jamming this weekend and..looking over my shoulder hehe.
There’s no denying that a fine Italian company like Pirelli, knows its tyres just as well as knowing the world’s most beautiful women. Every December, Pirelli releases their annual photographic and artistic masterpiece The Pirelli Calendar that celebrates beauty, style and elegance. And.. we have to admit, this is one of the few times when the Csquared Menswear office turns a blind eye to the dangerously NSFW photos below!
The 2012 Pirelli Calendar titled Swoon, was shot by Mario Sorrenti—his first time shooting for Pirelli.
Which of the world’s finest beauties were invited to take it all off in the name of style?
A few of our favorite models Lara Stone, Joan Smalls, Guinevere van Seenus and actresses Margareth Madè and Rinko Kikuchi all posed for Sorrenti.
“It’s an incredibly prestigious honor—a huge accomplishment for a photographer,” Sorrenti said at the calendar’s unveiling press conference on December 6 in New York City.
So you’re probably asking yourself, is this Miss June?
Turns out there is no Miss January or February in this calendar; instead, Sorrenti designed a portfolio-style calendar where the owner can insert any picture into any month. “I couldn’t figure out which month for the girls was appropriate, so we just let that go,” he said.
Judging from the photo’s below - we reckon Sorrenti made a wise call!
This is probably the only instance where all wish it was January, every month of the year..
This Calendar is only available to only a handful of Pirelli’s VIP patrons and so it is definitely #TOPSWAG fashionography for sure.
Which one would you put in your January calendar sleeve?
Yes! This is the kind of girl we can get down with….
- Besides the fashion by Kanye West’s first women’s RTW 2012 Spring collection (Paris Fashion Week), we’re lovin the contrast in texture, the color against gorgeous Chanel Iman’s beautiful dark skin and those sexy cutouts that are a HUGE huge spring/summer 2012 trend for Women..
ahehe #_o lucky us !
Keep them cutouts coming this Summer ladies!
Which other women’s trends d’you wish would just go away? Leggings?!
or those awful 1-size-you-dont-fit-all “jeggings” ?
Watching Tower Heist with a ragged-ass looking Eddie Murphy, made me flash back to a major style moment that his character had .. way back in the day on Beverley Hills Cop.
This Baseball jacket trend was huuge last year on the London indie music fest scenes, but mostly on women because of Marina and The Diamonds’ outright fan of BB jackets and vintage cheerleader jackets (genius lady)!
Now.. its time for some retro Eddie with his steely expression, faded blue denims and buck-bangin BB jacket to rule the cool-kid fashion scene.
So.. you’re feelin’ gutsy and wanna channel this look without looking dumpy?
For a modern interpretation, choose a BB jacket thats ribbed and is cropped slightly high on the waist. Pair it with ripped skinny dark jeans, or this season’s skinny cargos for a balanced silhouette (Pair baggy top jacket with ultra slim bottoms for slick 2012 look).
What to wear underneath BB jacket?… Well, if you ask some of us we’d prefer you wear nothing at all this summer :)
Keep it simple underneath the BB jacket: A thin razor cut, baggy white vest is best for those hot summer days coming up and will hug your bod in all the right places, with minimal effort.
oh yea.. and whats a 80s throw-back look without some Rose-tinted aviators.
