I love menswear!!  I think that men’s clothing usually seem to be of higher quality and more interesting than women’s. But that may just be my own personal bias.  Recently, I’ve been getting some inquiries about where to find unique menswear in the Washington DC area. From my interactions, it appears that DMV men are searching for other options to supplement their current JCrew, Nordstrom, Zara, Express, Gap and Banana Republic staple items (Did i miss any other popular brands?)  So this dilemma inspired me to write a post dedicated to MEN!! I mean, who doesn’t like a well-dressed man :) ?

So with my camera in hand, I decided to visit my friend Ernest (designer of the 4J Couture clothing line) and feature some of his menswear pieces in this post.  4J Couture specializes in European inspired clothing and custom made suits. So if you find yourself in the Laurel, MD area, make sure you definitely stop by the store and browse through (Address: 603 7street, Suite 103 A Laurel MD 20707). You never know, you may end up finding something that you like.

The style of suits & blazers being offered were so varied. Different colors, textures, and designs. Some of these would be perfect for fall.

Ahhhh Bowties…so colorful…so vivid! These looked so nice in person, I couldn’t help but pick up a few for myself.  Ladies don’t be afraid of embracing menswear. When it’s done well….it can look really good.

Loved the patterned dress shirts especially the pink polka dot!!!
