An Appaman Baby Shower

May 9, 2017 in Appaman News, Appaman Style, DIY

Appaman HQ loves to celebrate, and what better occasion than a new baby?

Operations Manager Alyssa is expecting her first child, and with her due date right around the corner, we gathered the staff and headed to Brooklyn for a garden party baby shower at Lynn & Harald’s house.

We even had a special surprise guest (former Appaman staffer Jenna) fly in from Texas for the occasion!

We had a wonderful time stepping outside the office and celebrating a smart and dedicated woman who works so hard to make sure that Appaman is the best that it can be.

Spring 2017 Collection Suiting Guide

March 25, 2017 in Appaman Style

suiting

We know that choosing the right suit for the occasion can be overwhelming. With so many styles, colors and fabrics, how do you know which is best? We broke down the Appaman 2017 Fine Tailoring Collection to offer some style tips and detailed descriptions of our spring and summer Mod Suits. Happy shopping!

 

linen-appaman-boys-ss17-suiting-guide

Linen and linen blend suits are perfect for adding a laid-back, summery vibe to your look while still being appropriate for formal occasions. This classic warm weather fabric has a looser weave than other styles, allowing air to flow for a cool, comfortable fit. The matte (no shine) finish gives it the textured look of natural fibers. Available in Fog (100% linen) or Dusty Blue (linen blend).

chino-appaman-boys-ss17-suiting-guide

Cotton suits are as comfortable as your favorite chinos. Cool, lightweight twill has a tight, flat weave with a matte finish and a comfortable fit. Ours comes in red, which is an awesome way to make a statement while keeping it casual. This is a great suit to re-style with your favorite old-school sneakers, and it’s versatile enough to pull into your early fall wardrobe. Looks great with black, white, and light blue.

prince-of-wales-appaman-boys-ss17-suiting-guide

This suit is formal, the pattern is traditional, but the look is far from stuffy. When styled with bright colors or pastel patterns, it takes a decidedly fashion-forward look. Prince of Wales, commonly known as Glen Plaid, is a box-like pattern consisting of light and dark contrasting fine lines, that is iconic enough to have been a regular featured as part of the James Bond wardrobe throughout the years. Our version incorporates blue and grey for a great spring-friendly look that’s sophisticated yet youthful.

bengal-stripe-appaman-boys-ss17-suiting-guide

We love the subtle elegance of the delicate Bengal Stripe: a crisp, lightweight cotton blend material woven with a narrow blue and white stripe pattern. Up close, it resembles seersucker, but with a much finer stripe. From a few steps back, it’s a gentle powder blue with a hint of texture. It’s a great option for a summertime formal occasion, so we made ours with shorts instead of pants. Looks great with a bow tie and a crisp white shirt.

seasonal-solids-appaman-boys-ss17-suiting-guide

For maximum versatility in spring & summer suiting, try a seasonal solid blue. The Mod Suit in Deep Cobalt (available with shorts or pants) is lighter and brighter than a traditional formal navy suit and is made from a matte finish breathable material that’s not much heavier than shirting fabric. Cobalt is one of our most popular choices this season and looks fantastic with almost any bold, bright pattern, soft pastel, or contrasting accessory.

Those who like our traditional mid/light weight semi-shine suiting will love the super sharp Mod Suit in Cool Blue. It’s a great choice for extra-special events like spring holidays (try a pastel tie for Easter photos) or weddings. Ringbearer suit, anyone?

Adding a formal coat or fun jacket to your holiday party outfit is a great way to complete your photo-ready look. Why cover up your fancy fashion with snow gear when you could complement it with faux fur, velvet, or a smart and sophisticated overcoat? Nothing beats a great coat or jacket to add the perfect final touch and make a special event extra special.

Kids Fashion Ideas for Fall: Mini Me Looks
As kids fashion ideas go, finding grown up looks for littles is always a safe bet for maximum style. Trends may come and go, but sophisticated style is always a winner. Instead of stealing from mom and dad’s closet for the latest styles, we built our fall collection to include some classic looks that even the youngest family members will love. From boys flannel shirts and chunky cardigans to houndstooth coats and denim jeggings for girls, we’ve got their wardrobe covered this fall and winter. These are looks they’ll never grow tired of–and will make them feel like a little adult.

The Bushwick Pant: This flat front chino with a fashionable, tapered fit, is a style must have for every guy–big or little. It’s the step above casual. Wear it with a graphic tee, or dress it up with a blazer for fancier occasions. Shop the Bushwick Pant in Four Leaf Clover now.

Fall Fashion Alert: Stylish Pants for Kids

See Ya Later Shorts!
Shorts season is coming to a close. As much as we love shorts and all they represent (ice cream! cannonballs! catching fireflies!), we also look forward to the onset of long pants season and all of the fall festivities (apple picking! leaf peeping! jack-o-lanterns!). But one of the biggest differences between shorts and pants, besides the obvious weather appropriateness of each style, is the fact that you actually have to pay attention to length when it comes to wearing pants. Shorts can fall right above the knee, at the knee or below it and you’re still ok. But with pants, if they’re too short, you get major style points deducted from your look (floods, anyone?). Sending them back to school in pants that are too short are a style sin, mom! The perfect pant length is about 1/4-1/2 inch above the floor, depending on the type of shoes you’re wearing. But one thing’s for sure, unless you’re sporting summertime capris, ankle length is so not cool.

Pants for Every Style | Appaman

Pants-a-palozza: There’s a Pair for Every Style
Does your little dude prefer slouchy sweats to skinny jeans? Or maybe he’s a classic flat front chino kind of guy. Is she a jeggings kind of girl or a denim diva? Whatever their style, we’ve got them covered from waist to toe this fall.

Fall Pants for Boys
Our Bushwick Pants are classic chinos with a fashionable tapered fit and a flat front. We made them in some cool colors this fall, including Dress Blues and Gunmetal. Also on tap are our Skinny Twill Pants, which are a street style alternative to jeans. With a hint of stretch and cool slim cut leg, these pants will take him from the hallways to the holidays in style. Bringing some rocker ‘tude to the party is our Hiro Pant, a slouchy fitting pant with some serious punky cool and our Parker Sweats, black and white sweatpants with three zippers and and an edgy style.

Girls Pants for Fall
For all the little ladies in the house, you can’t go wrong with a pair of cute leggings for fall. Our Shiny Legging is both glam and comfy rolled up into one easy to wear pair of leggings. We love how the shiny coating makes even a simple t-shirt look rocker chic. The Denim Knit Jegging is a classic vintage-inspired pair of slim fitting jeans with a cool distressed look and a comfy fit she won’t want to take off. Our Finley Knit Denim pant is a cool printed take on everyday jeans, with a funky pattern and soft and cozy knit material. Think of our Pipe Pant in a glitzy metallic gold as a new neutral. The flashy (in a good way) pants have a add a splash of glam to grays, whites and blacks.
