Men’s Style: The Five Commandments, by Nathan Beesley

I would like to introduce you to someone who I know is one to watch in the world of fashion journalism, my ever stylish friend, Nathan Beesley. Yes, he's male and yes, he's into fashion. No, he's not gay.

Nathan has a wonderful blog called The Boy With The Thorn In His Side, where he shares all sorts of interesting musings in an oh-so-witty fashion, and today (in response to my last article "My ultimate style and beauty 'no-no's for girls") he has written a brilliant post entitled "Men’s Style: The Five Commandments".

Now this is a man who knows how to dress, so I suggest you listen up and follow his wise words. (Although, one point which I'm willing to debate is that of the gilet, but hey.)

You can read Nathan's full post on his blog, but here's a little taster of said Commandments to whet your appetite:

"1)       Thou Shalt Not Wear Drop-Crotch Jeans

The whole purpose of clothes in the first place is to create an appealing silhouette and flatter your figure, so why would you wear jeans that make you look like you’ve emptied the contents of your bowels into the base of your trousers.

2)       Black and Brown Doth Make a Frown

This is mainly concerned with suiting and other formal wear: Black shoes with black trousers. Brown shoes with navy or grey trousers. Capiche? Moving on.

3)       Thou Shalt Not Wear Garish Branding

Walking around looking like Hollister mannequin? Plastered with the word ‘Superdry’? You’re a human being, not Lewis Hamilton’s Formula One Car. Burn it all.

4)       Thou Shalt Only Dress for the Gym Whence Going to the Gym

Joggers are not for going to lectures. Joggers are for…do I really have to spell it out?

5)       Thou Shalt Not Wear a Gilet

No need to elaborate on this, simply read my post Rah, Rah Black Sheep: Escaping the Clifton Cliché."

So go on, what are you waiting for!? Go and discover Nathan's hilarious and insightful blog. When he's a big star you'll be able to say you knew about him aaaaages ago, dahling. You're welcome.
