MDA Spring Soiree 2014

Last Saturday April 11, 2014 marked the beginning of Spring with the 15th Annual MDA Spring Soiree. Each year, this event marks the night that everyone wears the newest styles and fashions for the coming Spring and Summer Months.  This year the invitation said Black Tie or Sparkle.  Here’s a few pictures on how the crowd interpreted this theme.  Along with the Fashion and Style pix are some beautiful shots of Waikiki to help you enjoy the atmosphere of this year’s party. For Additional pictures of this years Soiree, check out Honolulu Pulse.

 

Stay Cool and look Great in these Spring Time Suits

Guys if you’re looking to stay cool and look hot this Spring. Check out  some of the following Spring suits  from Bonobos for some nice options. The Cool Cottons and stylish seersucker suits are guaranteed to help you stay nice and comfy, yet still very stylish for the warmer weather Soirees, Yard parties, Roof partying or just kickin’ it on a Saturday night.

Let’s check out some of the newer very on trend Cotton suits.

I’m digging these seersucker suits, especially the navy blue.

Or you can be traditional and stick to the wool suits updated in the newer slimmer cuts. They carry various Wools from 110’s to 130’s. See more here.

 

Or you can cut it up with the Is this trending this year or last year’s double-breasted suit. I think It doesn’t really matter, If you look good in something wear it. And these DB’s are slimmer and sleeker than the suits from 10 years ago. I remember huge shoulder pads and fairly baggy fits on the older double-breasted suits. These are slimming and cut for the Modern Dude.  Oh and make sure you keep them buttoned when standing, then you can unbutton them while sitting. Although I do like watching David Letterman at night especially because he’s from NY, it drives me crazy when he doesn’t button up his DB’s. I sometimes catch my self screaming at the TV for him to button up, but of course I know he can’t hear me. Maybe, he’ll read streetzblog and start buttoning up his Double-Breasted suits.

Check out this nice Dark Navy wool DB suit. the fit is quite nicely tailored, which produces a great silhouette for many a body shape.

If you look good in DB's, wear them. This is cut so sleek it almost looks like a single breasted suit from this photo angle

If you get invited to a Black Tie Gala Bonobos even has some tux’s for you. These are also cut close to the body and look crisp, clean and ready to Rock at your next party.

Black Tie means Black tie. This is what you should be wearing. You can always turn it up a bit with a fancy pocket square.

I hope some of these options help you out when you’re getting ready for your next Spring or Summer Event. See you on the streetz or maybe at a Spring or Summer party. I wouldn’t mind being invited to a Roof Top Gig, I’ve never been to one of those before. I’m personally thinking about getting the Seersucker suit or the navy Double-Breasted. What is your favorite look?

  2. I think GQ should publish this blog because seersucker is essential for the summer wardrobe. Every dude needs seersucker. Brooks Brothers has known this since the rat pack brought cool to the Vegas inferno.

    • Thanks for the compliment, GQ would be awesome. I agree, it gets so hot here sometimes, I bet seersucker would be a great choice. I personally like the Dark Navy version, with a crisp white or orange pocket square and some brown Grenson Fred Boots. 🙂

  3. I like the Heisenberg blue tie, that is my new fave color. Pocket squares are not optional for any self-respecting man about town. Matching the tie to the pocket square is where the personality really shows, I wish there was an app for that. That would be fierce.
