Alexander McQueen Clothing for Men
Why He’s A Style Icon
Indeed, his reputation was partly built on his unwillingness to conform to the norm. Apart from his rebellious spirit, what also garnered the bad-boy of British fashion a loyal following was his ability to cut clothing like no other. Before graduating with a master’s from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, Alexander McQueen cut his teeth at Savile Row tailors Anderson & Sheppard, where it was rumored that he routinely graffitied profanities into linings intended for Prince Charles’ suits. A brief stint at costumier Angels and Berman further instilled the importance of attention to detail in Alexander McQueen.
While his clothes are technically exquisite, what really solidifies McQueen’s style icon status is that his collections, always an appealingly eclectic and cutting-edge mix of tradition and punk, inspired both individuals and the fashion world at large to push the boundaries of style. In 2004, McQueen released his first menswear collection and was named British Menswear Designer of the Year.
Dress The McQueen Way
So, don’t be afraid to wear an over-the-top artsy sweater or attract attention with a controversial T-shirt slogan — as long as you’re having fun. Also, any outrageous selections should be tempered by tailored pieces.
While there’s certainly a hefty dose of rock ‘n’ roll-style irreverence in style icon Alexander McQueen’s creations, there’s also a lot of polish. Choose the most sharply cut blazers and dress pants you can afford and then play around with this base by introducing opulent coats, exotically patterned scarves, shaggy sweaters, fringed ponchos, and an arsenal of hats into your wardrobe. If all of that seems a bit much to you or your real life doesn’t lend itself to this manner of dressing, try a more street-oriented version of McQueen’s style with the Alexander McQueen PUMA. Just remember to keep everything a bit offbeat, so break style rules and wear them with dark dress pants or tuck your jeans into the high tops and throw on a blazer.

And reminded me the importance of womens rights, and solidarity among women from everywhere on our planet.
I was waiting in the sun for the bus. A young, beautiful african woman dressed in bright traditional clothing came to wait also. I noticed how her hair was neatly tucked into her scarf artfully arranged, her pretty brown skin, bright african shoulder bag, delicate hands. She must be around 28-30 yrs old.
I board the bus. I sit next to her because I know along the way we'll only pick up greasy gross people and I want to make sure to get a good seat.
She starts talking to me about my beautiful trendy purse
