Metro Man & Metro Home

Here are three items for men that will serve well in 2015, whether you’re spending holiday gifts, traveling for the holidays, celebrating a birthday, or thinking ahead to the New Year. One never goes out of style (see navy blazer, below), another is year-round useful, and the third is trending hard (statement socks, below). Be at your most dapper in 2015 because when fate comes knocking, you’ll want to look sharp.

Blazer 1

The Traveler’s Hopsack Blazer is a classic piece that will command respect at work and at social functions and is versatile enough to dress up or down as the occasion warrants. Bonus: if you’re tall and big, you can find it in Long too. This has been a wardrobe statement for men for ages because it imparts a subtle air of elegance and authority. Who wouldn’t want that? Find it at


The stylish RYU Kanabo Wind Jacket is ideal for layering in the winter and for cold-weather running. It’s water resistant, ultra-light and made from renewable sources. It also has under-arm eyelets for venting, a fixed hood, zipper pockets and it comes in orange too; check it out at If you’re headed to warmer climes this winter, this clever RYU jacket is light to pack and useful for any destination.

Walk On Socks 2

Walk On Socks are pure whimsy, imbued with imaginative images that complete a look and an outfit. Sock styles include Walk On The Moon (featuring an image of the moon on the soles), Walk On Pins & Needles (pins and needles featured on the sole), Walk On All Fours (images of 4s), Walk On Eggshells (yes, eggshell images), Walk On The Wild Side (animal print) and Walk On Water. See them for yourself and order at Fyi, these are extremely comfortable, too.

Pair the blazer with your favorite Walk On Socks and blow minds wherever you roam.

Happy New Year!

In my head I'm singing,"When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, it's Amore". I know you're never this literal, but couldn't help it! :)…
