: Take a sartorial walk down memory lane by exploring the very best that 2016 had to offer in gentlemanly style :
Having routinely espoused upon the virtues of permanent style and the enduring merits of curating a signature uniform (and wardrobe) whose core is fashioned from a variety of timeless essentials that are (nearly all) plucked from the evergreen stable of classic menswear staples — those in which are universally flattering and timeless in form and function — it should be quite evident to deduce that I am indeed a firm believer in (and relentless champion of) a peculiar brand of sartorial discourse that explicitly calls for the carrying over of one's innate tastes for fashion and his distinctive ( as well as distinguishing) form of dress from one year to the next with but a few well considered, subtle changes (and experimentations) being made (as needed or required) along what will essentially become a life-long journey of creative fine-tuning.
To that account, and with that firmly in mind, what rests before you today is a collection of the most popular features and style inspiration from the year that was on the M+E style journal that you can bookmark (if need be) as well as reference for years to come in additional to a few personal musings on who I believe was the most stylish gentleman (both real + fictional) to have electrified photo lenses and enchanted silver screens alike in 2016 alongside that of my choice selections for the best and worst trends to have hit the menswear domain these past 12 months.
So, as I endeavour to continue in my active pursuit of crafting only the finest informative, inspirational, and entertaining content that comes to mind (and prominence) throughout this newly christened year, here's to first acknowledging what were the greatest hits (and misses) of this last (most eventful) year…
2016 was quite the year (for many different reasons, both positive and negative in nature) if truth be told, but if there is one thing I would like to leave you with today it is that of a most sincere and appreciative thank you!
Thank you to my readers, affiliate partners, clientele, friends, family…and anybody else who has supported M+E over the past two years (not to mention going into the future as well) in any manner whatsoever.
For you see, I could not have done it without your continued support and patronage — you are the very reason I am were I am today and the (budding) success of M+E owes everything to you
So, I would just like to thank you all again (I truly cannot propely express in words what your support means)!
: Most Beloved Purchase of 2016 :
All that being said, here's to raising a glass to what is hopefully a most sartorially resplendent, (univerally) peaceful, and highly successful 2017 for each and every last one of us.
Share your thoughts and musings…
