The Stitched Style Academy Awards

By Steven Cruz | instagram.com/scruzloose

Last night the 88th Academy Awards brought together celebrities from far and wide, in a grandiose battle for Oscars, bragging rights, and the all-important “best-dressed” nods. The Oscars typically elicit thoughts of beautiful women in wonderfully adorned dresses; but would we see anything but copy-pasted penguin suits from the men? Here are the best of the men (and one woman) in our First Annual Stitched Style Academy Awards. Live from STITCHED at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Craziest Trend in a Clothing Feature Film: Kevin Hart


Starting out of the gates is our friend Kevin Hart with an all blacked out look. Patent leather shoes make this quite dressy, but the rhinestone studded jacket brings it right to the edge. You’re rocking it, Kevin!

Most Dapper look in an Action Film: Sylvester Stallone


Sylvester Stallone. Coming in hot with a navy blue tux with a fit so good, his tailor should get an Emmy. Sharp peak lapels give this jacket a dressy look that can’t be beat. At the end of the day, the most enduring styles are landed with perfect precision.

Most Peculiar Outfit in a Short Film: Jared Leto


Now we’ve seen some interesting stuff from Jared Leto in the past, but maybe his role as the Joker is starting to show up more in other places. Jared is wearing a tailored Gucci suit with vibrant pink piping in combination with a carnation bow tie and velvet loafers with, of all things, snakes. Do you love it? Do you hate it? All that matters is that you’re looking at it. Along with Leto in the all-Gucci garb is Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele, and if he gives Leto his blessing, then so shall we.

Snazziest in a Presenting Role: Chris Rock


Presenting the Oscars this year is none other than funnyman Chris Rock, and he pulled all the stops when it came to his fashion this year. Wearing what might be the only white dinner jacket on the floor made it all the more special on his shoulders and in front of all the lights. Going with the classic slim black bowtie made this our most snazzy look of the night.

Best Costume Design: Sandy Powell


Do you know who Sandy Powell is? Well you should now. Sandy has won three (count em, 3) Oscars for costume design and has been nominated a whopping TWELVE times. This has got to be the most fantastic women’s outfit on the red carpet, and guess what, she made it herself! In a true Bowie-esque style, she pulls off the orange hair with fierce looks.

Best Athlete Actor… in a blue tuxedo: Michael Strahan


The Best Actor Award, the award everyone awaits with bated breath, goes to none other than … athlete-turned-tv host, Michael Strahan! Wearing felted wool at this time of year is a risk, and Strahan even made some people’s “worst dressed” lists, but that cerulean had to play in the sun. Paring with a tie that blends perfectly with the peaks of his lapels and a glint of gold on his wrist, Michael was a hit with this ballad of blue.

STITCHED D.C. at MGM National Harbor has soft opened.

Similar to STITCHED at The Cosmopolitan, STITCHED at MGM National Harbor resembles a centuries-old haberdashery, surrounded by a pristine casino resort unlike anything that preceded it. The $1.5 billion MGM National Harbor is the only destination of its stature anywhere outside of Las Vegas.


STITCHED D.C. at MGM National Harbor proudly welcomed boxing legend Bernard Hopkins as its first customer.

ACM Awards Red Capet Roundup

By Ryan Beyer @Rbeyer90

The Academy of Country Music Awards came to Las Vegas this weekend, and these cowboys brought their best fashion forward. The looks were Vegas-red-carpet ready, hearkening back to the days of entertainers like the Rat Pack. These men brought their best formal attire, with not-so-subtle hints of irreverence, and looked quintessentially STITCHED. Here were my five faves:

Brett Eldridge

(Pictured above)

A little velvet goes a long way, and this velvet dinner jacket goes the extra mile. In a rich Bordeaux tone, Eldridge’s velvet exudes luxury. The tonal satin lapels add a customized touch. The jacket is allowed the proper spotlight, complimented by a crisp, white shirt, a black double-breasted vest and black trousers. Not pictured – his simple loafers to complete the outfit.

Dustin Lynch

Light grey is a gentleman’s staple in suiting, but rarely do we see a light grey tuxedo. The wide shawl lapel and the turned up cuff give a great deal of personality. Simplicity shines in the rest of the outfit, a white tuxedo shirt, black slacks, and a black bow tie and pocket square. Lynch’s cowboy boots still give a bit of country flair necessary for the ACM’s.

Chase Bryant

Chase Bryant decided to compete with the bright lights of Vegas, and he may have won. A black tuxedo shirt, a black bow tie, and black slacks all provide a perfect base to allow the golden brocade jacket to shine. Although we would have opted for suspenders, Bryant pulls this look off with panache.

Sam Hunt

This isn’t the loudest look of the bunch, but it is unique. A Nehru collar jacket with strong, roped shoulders isn’t something we see very often, but when you see it done well, it really shines. Though we would have kept it tucked in, the elongated shirt gives a notable nod to streetwear, while the all-black attire gives me shades of Johnny Cash.

Scott McCreery

Rounding out the formal ensembles, Scott McCreery has a maroon floral brocade jacket. The texture gives the jacket a unique personality – it isn’t loud but it certainly isn’t boring. Again, the simplicity of the rest of the ensemble allows the jacket to be the star.

Don’t let these cowboys fool you, they know how to clean up. Let’s hope they can lead some of their fellow musicians to some bold and unique fashion!

Layering. The key to staying warm, and looking dapper during the winter months. Though there is proper technique involved in layering garments, it is by no means a complicated process. Just follow this simple advice, and you’ll be fighting off Old Man Winter in style.

Know Your Layers
  • Base: This is the layer closest to your person – usually an oxford or dress shirt. This layer can be dressed up or down by adding a tie, or simply leaving the top button undone. A thin undershirt can add an extra layer of insulation if needed.
  • Middle: This garment, which goes over the base layer, should be breathable, but trap warmth. This layer can be a sweater, quarter zip, vest, or cardigan
  • Top: The top layer’s purpose is to protect you from the frigid temperatures and harsh elements of winter. This is typically a top coat or heavy sport coat, in a tweed or flannel.

Know your Fabrics
  • Weight: Always layer from thin to thick. Not only is this practical, but it will keep you from looking bulky. Some fabrics work well for a specific layer. Cashmere provides warmth, but can be light and compact, so it serves as a great middle layer. Meanwhile, a heavy wool makes a great top layer.
  • Texture – Add a sense of depth to your look by varying fabric textures. This applies even if you are wearing the same fabric all over. Be sure to aim for contrasting fabric finishes, such as waxed, brushed, or felted, to set each piece apart.

Know your Colors 
  • Color coordination is a crucial component of the styling process. When styling your look, it helps to refer to the color wheel to find colors that compliment each other.
  • On a color wheel, the colors opposite each other are contrasting colors, and usually combine the best in outfits. Adding contrasting colors is a great way to make an outfit pop.
  • Colors that are next to each other on the color wheel are similar shades. Similar shades are great if you want a more uniform look in your outfit. Combining similar colors provides a subtle look that isn’t too loud.

Know your Prints
  • The best part about creating a layered outfit is that you can customize it to fit your style personality. For a minimalist look, combine block colors or subtle patterns with neutral hues.
  • If you’re looking to incorporate bolder patterns into your look, always start from smallest to largest. Set a rather small, simple pattern as your base and have the others graduate from that, placing the most complex pattern on top. Also, to avoid outfit clutter, be sure to alternate your patterns.

Remember, even though each piece is a part of your layered look, it should still be able to serve its function as a standalone garment. Layering during the cold weather months can be fun, as it gives you the opportunity to mix colors and fabrics in a unique way that show off your personal style. In the heart of winter, layering clothes is less of a choice and more of a necessity, so it’s important to make sure you get it right.

The bowtie. This bold display of personality and style should have a place in every gentleman’s wardrobe. They key, however, is knowing when and where to pull it out, and of course, how to correctly tie one. So whether you’ve never learned how to tie a bowtie, or simply need a refresher, this STITCHED Guide will break down the process for you step-by-step.

Step 1

Lie the bowtie face up around your neck. It may be helpful to let one end of the bowtie hang about 1.5 inches longer, but it is ultimately up to personal preference. 

Step 2

Cross the two sides of the bow tie, forming an x, then bring the overlapping (longer) side underneath the underlying side and up through the neck loop.

Step 3

At the joint, fold the other side (the one you did not loop) to the right, then towards the left, to create the bow shape.

Step 4

Bring the looped side straight down over the middle of the bow shape.

Step 5

Pinch the folded bow together, and feed the middle of the dangling end through the loop behind the bow.

Step 6

 Pull on the folded parts of the bow to tighten, adjusting until balanced on both sides.

Having some trouble at first? YOU ARE NOT ALONE, but patience is a virtue. Trust us, it only takes a couple run-throughs to get it right. No need to make any rash decisions such as resorting to a pre-tied bow. A hand-tied bowtie is a statement piece, and an ode to the STITCHED mantra: Classic, with subtle hints of irreverence.

When rocking a bow tie:

  • Avoid pattern overload. A patterned shirt should be paired with a solid color or minimally patterned bowtie and vice versa.
  • A suit or tuxedo is not always necessary. However, throw on sport coat or suspenders to maintain a complete look.
  • People will notice. Rock it with confidence and swagger.

2016 ESPYS Best Dressed
By Chris Bassett-Bouchard

The annual ESPYS celebrate the world’s greatest athletes, also giving sportsmen a Hollywood-like opportunity to dress up and walk the red carpet. Our best-dressed recap starts with two superstars STITCHED-up in our XXXX Collection – an MVP and a Superbowl champion.

Richard Sherman
Sherman lets his XXXX Collection Black Label jacket do the talking with its brilliant blue color, jacquard print, satin piping, and black peak lapel. He rounds out his combination with a black XXXX Collection bowtie on black Eton of Sweden shirt. All available at STITCHED inside the Cosmopolitan. Styling credit: STITCHED’s Chris Day.

Josh Donaldson
Showing true Toronto pride, Donaldson dons a Blue-Jays-blue XXXX Collection Red Label suit (available at STITCHED in The Cosmopolitan and online at StitchedLife.com linked here). He also rocked a red XXXX Collection necktie over a white and blue windowpane shirt, and tied it all together with a gold XXXX tie clip and perfectly paired pocket circle. Styling credit: STITCHED’s Ryan Beyer.

Craig Sager
Ever known for his bold suiting repertoire on the NBA sidelines, Sager did not disappoint with his shiny black jacket featuring pops of colorful floral print over a yellow shirt and blingy-black necktie. This look isn’t for everyone. Actually, it’s barely for anyone. But we love Craig and admire his irreverent style.

Stephen Curry
Showing some Warriors pride, Curry makes a statement with his blue velour jacket, complete with black shawl lapel and topped off with a classic white shirt and skinny black necktie.

Lebron James
Cleveland’s hero takes the stage in a timeless white shirt, black bowtie, and a subtle twist: double-breasted, wide shawl lapel black tuxedo.

It is no secret that Fall/Winter is my preferred season for fashion. There is something so beautiful about layers of luxurious clothing that stimulate the creative senses. There is so much originality involved with draping your body in overcoats, peacoats, top coats, duffle coats, fur coats, suits, sport coats – and accessorizing with scarves, ascots, fedoras, sunglasses, waist coats, and wrist wear. It leaves you visually stimulated and keeps you guessing. That’s in stark contrast with the Spring/Summer style, which tends to expose much more.

Pitti Immagine Uomo 89 was no exception for seeing the aforementioned. Pitti truly is the crème de la crème of tradeshows for menswear in Florence Italy and is revered as one of the best places for retailers, editors, and buyers to discover – and set – new trends. Pitti is also a place to explore your wildest fashion dreams.

Wearing your overcoat off the shoulders was a trend that was prevalent and screamed European elegance. I also loved seeing pocket squares and leather gloves in the breast pockets of the outerwear (classic camel seemed to be the color of choice). Crimson, bright red, merlot, eggplant, violet, heather grey, charcoal, bright blue and navy hues also prevailed among the brilliant sartorial looks gracing the brisk streets of Firenze. Chalk stripes, windowpanes, tartan plaids, and plaid-solid pairings created intriguing and unexpected ensembles. Colorful umbrellas, walking sticks, leather tote bags and briefcases were a necessity. Looks were complete with round, wayfarer, aviator, square, and oversized sunglasses.

Now, go ahead and arouse your eyes and view my favorite looks below from Pitti Uomo 89. My theme for this year’s Pitti show: “Allure in Layering.”
