Ladies, I’ll tell you what, when it comes to coercing our men into dressing like dandies, it ain’t always easy. That is, unless he’s particularly fashion-forward which is possible (although not probable) in this day-and-age of meterosexual-alpha-male-creatures wriggling about. Granted, there are some pretty stylie dudes living and breathing out there – I’ve seen them passing in the night. But it’s definitely not all peaches and cream when it comes to our men being on par with our own highbrow taste sensibilities. Some of the men in our lives definitely ride a twinge behind the design curve. But it’s okay cause hey, that’s what we’re here for, us trend-conscious women of the world – to nudge our men folk into becoming the arm-pieces we always envisioned they’d be – be they husbands, lovers or brothers.

The grand opening of the GUY FELER STORE is our Faberge golden egg opportunity to beautify our hunnies to look all dapper and fine (of course, there are some luxe goodies for us, too – trust!). This exclusive, brand-spanking-new appointment-only store is all up and coming designers and progressive aesthetics. The store’s centerpiece is its namesake collection, a new sophisticate twist on old-school hip-hop style, re-imagined and smartly refined for both form and function. Gorgeous silk ties (with patented square bottoms) constitute the ‘welcome to’ the collection. Then, with the addition last fall of unisex scarves, hats for winter, silk scarves for this spring, and then bowties for the upcoming fall, the collection keeps expanding along the cutting-edge of trend. A conservative, neo-classical brand, the Guy Feler Collection will elicit equally strong reactions in the boardroom, recording studio and out on the town. For the man who requires truly seamless day-to-night fashion metamorphosis, this brand is sure to become king.
