Celebrity stylist, Wendell Brown knows a thing or two about men’s fashion! He’s styled and worked with celebrities like Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Javier Bardem, Neil Patrick Harris, Michael Douglas, Joseph Gordon Levitt and Don Cheadle (to name a few). And he was kind enough to join me for an interview recently to discuss the top winter trends for men, and where to purchase them in time for the holidays!
Candace Rose: What are some of the top styles in men’s fashion this season?
Wendell Brown: “There’s a lot of things going on, there’s a lot of attention to vintage styles, heritage looks and sort of iconic menswear items.”
Candace Rose: What are some of the classic pieces that men should invest in for the winter months?
Wendell Brown: “Definitely guys should invest in quite a few things, and some of them I brought today.
First up is the iconic Fisherman sweater from Nautica. It’s 100% cotton which is great because it’s easy to care for, but it also wears really well. It’s very breathable, very comfortable. It comes in an array of styles and colors like this crewneck in blue (please see video for details). It’s a great price at $79.50.”
Candace Rose: Is there one must have item that every man should own this season?
Wendell Brown: “Definitely. This is a great item because every man regardless of his taste in clothing- the Degree Men’s Deodorant Adrenaline Series with Motion Sense. And with motion sense is, is motion sense technology is triggered by any body movement the guy makes. So before wet and odor occur, it starts working. The more you move, the more it protects. This is a great stocking stuffer, this is a great one for every kind of guy in your life.”
Candace Rose: Every guy loves shoes. What are some of the top trends in men’s footwear this season?
Wendell Brown: “I’ve got some great items here from Cole Haan, which is a wonderful company and very innovative in the way they marry the tradition with the modern. First up I have the Grant driving moccasin (please see video for details on all the footwear featured in this segment). It’s handmade leather with rawhide laces.
The other side we have the Martin Wedge Lace-up Boot. It won’t slip, it’s got great traction to it. These boots are completely waterproof so there’s no worry about inclement weather or getting caught in the rain or snow.
Also, from Cole Haan we have the Greenwich duffle bag in grained leather. It has a removable strap. It’s a great bag because again, you can dress it up or dress it down. It’s great for a business trip or a weekend away. The shoulder strap is removable so if you find that you need it, you can throw that on.”
Candace Rose: Wonderful! Well, thank you so much, Wendell. Where can we go for more information on everything you mentioned?
Wendell Brown: “You can go to VideoPump.tv for more information on all of these items.”
