It nearly always creeps up unannounced and with a jarringly expedited immediacy…the abrupt end of summer that is! One moment it is a balmy +25°, the next a seemingly inhumane +5° accompanied by an incessant downpour.
What is a stylish gent to do?
All my featured seasonal blog posts — editorials, style photo journals, outfit inspirations, and cultural style muses — in one convenient and personally reflective package
The summer of colour! It is an apt moniker, all matters considered, as I observed — present company included — more gents embracing an unreserved wardrobe palette of outright colourful expression and genteel refinement this past season then in any other that I can seemingly recall —perhaps ever!
A culturally inspired & curated capsule collection of what is sartorially influencing me this month:

Yet another month has swiftly sauntered by and I once again find myself seeking style muses to inspire me sartorially forward. Ergo, this month I revisit a timelessly chic classic film (and personal favourite); look towards a (stylish?) adult reimagining of a childhood television mainstay; pay homage to a rising British (soul) pop star by adopting some classic designs + fabrications from the annals of English style history; recommend an A/W transitional layering jacket; and discover a new online e-retailer + lifestyle destination that has managed to satisfy my seemingly insatiable A/W shopping hunger pangs. So without further adieu, my style muses for September 2015…
An exploratory look (+ advice) into becoming a modern gentleman of authentic worldly style & decorum
Words + Graphics ~ By Lyle Eero ~ September 11, 2015
When debating matters of obtaining true style, it has become conveniently customary to dispel the notion that having authentic (timeless) gentlemanly style (and decorum) demands more from a man then that of mastering the talent of resembling a billboard of perfected sartorial assemblage — of being stylish in dress alone. This common misconception is understandable, yet very short-sighted and lacking in insightful nature.
