Dressing For the Holidays

As we approach the Holidays-typically with family gatherings, as tradition dictates- we consider how best to represent ourselves in the company of those closest to us while celebrating the spirit of the season. Often times, the NOVELTY of the occasion helps to define its character, but it can become a hindrance if it takes precedence over an authentic, refined expression of personal style.

In other words, if that Ugly Christmas Sweater™ makes you feel any less yourself, don’t let it come between you and your manner of celebration! To balance the elements of festive appeal and timeless sophistication, Heimie’s Haberdashery has a couple of suggestions:

  • A sweater vest (consider burgundy or pine green) worn over a comfortable patterned shirt will give dynamic to your outfit with layers that will keep you cozy without feeling smothered. Allow our haberdashers to help you explore these combinations.
  • Corduroy trousers have a distinctive visual appeal and substantial nature and bring a delightful texture to an outfit with solid colors. When choosing between a wide-wale (ribbed) corduroy and a sleeker narrow-wale, consider balancing the trousers’ texture with that of your sweater; another element our staff is happy to help you navigate.
  • Slip-on shoes such as loafers or drivers add to a smart look, lending to casual comfort; laid-back, yet practical.

As always, Heimie’s Haberdashery is grateful to be a part of your Holiday season, whether under your tree or worn by the fireside!

Gentleman: The Time Has Come to Accessorize

You coordinate your ties, belts, and socks without giving it a second thought. What about your accessories?

Yes, your accessories. Gentleman, the time has come to embrace the idea that it’s okay to have numerous handbags and brief cases that you can coordinate with the rest of your wardrobe. The days of carrying around a beat up eyesore of a bag are over (and it’s about time).

Accessorize With a Purpose

Treat yourself to a functional bag for your Alaskan fishing getaway or indulge in a new handbag for your upcoming presentation. The old adage that “if you look good, you feel good” is true, and it applies to your accessories as well. The right accessory can make a big difference in your attitude.

Small Details Make a Big Difference

If you’ve been neglecting your accessories, you’re far from alone. Men have a tendency to ignore details like shoes and handbags, but the details can make all the difference. Heimie’s believes there’s a statement to be made in every situation, such as having the right utility backpack for your eco-friendly commute into the office.

Roll top backpacks are simple, light weight, and perfect for commuting on your bicycle. Once you make it into the office you can trade your roll top for a luxurious leather briefcase, throw on a dapper tie and seize the day!

It’s Time to Leave Your Old Bag Behind

Your 200 lb. oversized luggage bag has treated you well over the years, but it’s time to move on to accessories more appropriate for their surroundings. After all, you wouldn’t wear a baseball cap into the boardroom would you?
