Reinterpreting the formal look and doing it on a budget may be the best option for this New Year's eve event. You don't have to be boring or even traditional when it comes to dinner jackets. Be daring. Go white with your dinner jacket choice and pair it with black slacks and shirt, no tie - especially for those of you on the West Coast. This is the sort of look that shopping the vintage shops may allow for some amazing and very reasonably priced options. Welcome the New Year in your own style and have fun doing it.

Grey, white and burgundy are colors that go well together all the time, but to me they are especially appropriate during the holiday season. A v-neck sweater with a shirt and tie can take you from day to night and look chic without a second thought, then if you add a black and white gingham sport coat to the mix, you are truly in a league of your own and most likely to be the talk of the party. Oh, and don't forget a white pocket square as your final touch of class! Photo Source landerurquijo

Cargo pants seem to have a life of their own or at least re-incarnate over and over again. They are practical and truly comfortable. A cargo pant in corduroy is perfect for the cooler months. Also find one that is trim and the pockets are not protruding out so as to avoid unnecessary bulk, especially with a fabric like corduroy. And yes you can wear a sport coat with cargo pants, it makes for a fun dressier casual option. Photo Source: whataqueerbird

The classic double monk strap shoe has very little competition when it comes to premiere elegance. The monk shoe comes in single and double strap. The double strap with a more square expression on the toe box is usually best suited for suits, however it can be paired with jeans and chinos as well for a more casual European look. Always in fashion and a sign of good taste for the men who wear them. Photo Source: forwardfitting

Salt and Pepper to celebrate maturity. There's an existing stigma to getting older and, heaven forbid; showing your age. Remove facial lines and most definitely dye you hair. I say screw all that nonsense. Arriving at that place in time when your hair turns gray can actually improve your look. Salt and pepper hair does not diminish beauty and style; quite the opposite. Take pride in your salty locks. Photo Source: unclebeebo

How important is the lining in your coat? Not at all if you're not a detail oriented man. However it is a defining factor to those who value and understand dressing well. Some details - like lining - are only known to the man wearing the garment and this is key in the way a garment makes you feel. After all how a man looks will absolutely influence the way he feels!

Wearing the right amount of cologne can be the defining
touch in a well dressed man. A whole article can be written about this
and I will - look for Vincent'sPov in January - but for now here are
some quick tips. Find the right scent for your body chemistry. Never
splash cologne on your face or anywhere. Use one or two quick spritz
only. Choose two out of these areas to spritz. 1.Below the Adam's apple.
2. Where the forehead meets the hairline. 3. On the back side of
your hands. 4. The back of your neck or 5. Behind your ears. Remember
never more than two quick spritz!

If you are a guy who is just beginning to put together your basic wardrobe, this is not for you. This is for the man who has a diverse variety in his closet. The sport coat with the removable front liner. Though aesthetically pleasing - trust me I have put this coat in many guys this season and it always looks amazing - it does not truly serve any purpose. I tend to prefer clothes and accessories that make sense beyond the aesthetic use but this is one exception I can stand behind.

Some pieces are timeless and always in fashion. The Biker Jacket is one of those pieces that can stand the test of time and defy trends. Made popular by Marlon Brando and James Dean, the Biker Jacket has been synonymous with the bad boy look for decades. Still hot today the Biker Jacket is one of those pieces worth investing in since it will never go out of style.

I was asked recently when is it appropriate to not wear a belt? The short answer is, whenever you are wearing pants without belt loops on the waist band. However there are exceptions. If you are wearing suspenders you may forgo the belt - although they serve two different functions. You may feel very comfortable and relaxed in your old chinos or jeans strolling on the beach on a beautiful morning with an oversize sweater, topsiders, maybe a baseball cap and a cup of coffee, dog by your side and be just fine without a belt also.

Socks 101. The optimal combination: 80 percent cotton for softness and absorption, 20 percent nylon for stretch. Life expectancy for a sock is about a year, roughly. Average price for good socks about $30 - except cashmere socks! White socks are never dress socks.

Time to break out the leather gloves. During the colder months, gloves are as important as the undershirt. With the undershirt it is that first of layer that helps the rest of your body stay warm. With leather gloves, keeping your hands warm will trick the rest of your body into thinking is warm all over. Also if you use an non-oily hand cream prior to putting on your leather gloves, your skin will stay moisturized much like a mini manicure finish.
