Can you believe that summer is nearly over and fall is quickly approaching? If you’re searching for the top fall trends for yourself or the guy in your life, you’ve come to the right place! Patrick Carone, Senior Editor of Maxim magazine, stopped by to share the top fashion and grooming buys and trends for men this coming season!
Candace Rose: What are the must have grooming essentials every guy needs for fall?
Patrick Carone: “Let’s start at the top with the hair. Unfortunately a lot of guys suffer from dandruff (30 million to be exact), and it’s something that we like to take care of because no one likes to see the flakes all over. Thankfully Clear Men Scalp Therapy is here. They have a breakthrough approach that stops dandruff at the source. It’s only six bucks and you can get them at drugstores or retail outlets. For more information go to the Clear Men Facebook page.
As we go down on the face a little bit, we’ve got to talk about teeth, which is something people notice immediately. The truth of the matter is if you’re not actively whitening your teeth, they’re yellowing. You want to make sure you have a nice, bright white smile and Crest is here to help out with the Crest 3D White Professional Effects White Strips. They work to remove over 10 years of set in stains and they whiten 25 times better than the leading toothpaste, which is pretty awesome. For more information on that one, you can go to 3DWhite.com.
Now that we got the hair set and the teeth set, I want to talk about something that’s a little bit different than guys might know about. A lot of fellas struggle to read the fine print whether it’s in the menu or program, so these reading glasses (see video above) are really a must. What’s cool about them is they can be used in all different kinds of situations, and there are lots of different brands that you can have.”
Candace Rose: What are the latest fashion trends for guys this fall?
Patrick Carone: “The classic masculine look is in. The preppy look is very popular- polo shirts, IZOD, plaids. All that kind of stuff is perennial, and what’s cool is about that sort of look is that a lot of guys actually feel comfortable in them anyway, and that really is the most important thing for a guy to wear stuff that makes him feel comfortable, and that he’s not trying to be someone else and chase some trend.
With jeans, you don’t want them to be skinny jeans; but you also don’t want those big baggy jeans. You want a nice in between kind of a straight leg sort of style- and lighter jeans are a little bit more in fashion for this particular fall.”
Candace Rose: How about in terms of shoes?
Patrick Carone: “I love Docksiders boat shoes, I think that they’re really comfortable. Another one are the Bucks. That’s an older fashion that’s coming back in – Bass makes great ones. They’re comfortable and they can be nice because you can wear them to work or you can wear them out to dinner, or you can wear them out to the bar. It’s a great balance between all of those things because guys don’t want to have to go home and change, and do this and that. They just want to put one outfit on in the morning and then take it off at night.”
Candace Rose: Do you have any additional tips or information you’d like to share with us this morning?
Patrick Carone: “For more information that’s constantly updated, you can always go to Maxim.com, or of course you can always pick up Maxim on the newsstands. The October issue is just hitting stands now with the beautiful Sarah Shahi of Fairly Legal on the cover. I think folks will be really excited about that one; and that’s where you can go to get more info on all this stuff.”
