Summer Style – Chinos


It’s the middle of summer, you’re headed to an event, and shorts or jeans don’t seem right. Hopefully, you’ll be able to open up your closet and pull out a pair of light, cool chinos to substitue for denim. Although considered preppy, a decent pair of chinos can be a welcome addition to any wardrobe, especially in a fun, non-traditional color. Yes, you may take a few jabs from friends or coworkers, but colored chinos are definitely in, so take a risk and you should be commended for the bold fashion choice.

Summer Style – Tie Clips

Summer has started and as the end of June approaches, it definitely means that temperatures are going to rise. If you work in a Business Formal environment and decide to ditch the suit jacket in an effort to stay cool, then it’s time to think about investing in some tie clips. When you are walking to work, you do not want to look like the Commander in Chief above. Tie clips not only keep the wind blown look under control, but also can add some style and extra flair to your wardrobe.

Apple has apparently outdone Windows once again. Most have probably seen the horribly tacky Windows “to the cloud” commercials, but Apple has now released their own version called iCloud. It stores and automatically pushes music, photos, apps, calendars, and documents to all of your Apple devices. Download a song on your iPad, it is then pushed automatically to your computer and iPhone using iCloud. It comes with free 5 GB of storage, which should be plenty since all items purchased from Apple do not count against your storage space. Coming this fall, iCloud is easy and convenient. More information HERE.

Summer Style – The Best Gingham Gear


With summer about to kick into full gear, it is definitely time to pick up some new threads so that you’re looking fresh and up to date.

Audi A7

Billed as a luxury Sportback, the A7 is Audi’s latest design that continues to reinvigorate the brand. From the LED lined headlamps to 310 HP and 325 lb.ft of torque under the hood, this car screams both high end class and all world performance. It will be interesting to see if the 5 door Sportback design will appeal to the American public, but this model also comes loaded with all of Audi’s latest technology like Drive and MMI Touch. For just under $60 K, you could be the envy of everyone at the country club. Audi A7
