The series in which we hook you up with the feeds you need.

If you have even a passing interest in men’s style, stop looking at your friends’ struggle meals on Instagram and start following Nordstrom Men’s Fashion Director Jorge Valls.

Jorge was front row at the just-wrapped Paris Fashion Week, analyzing designers’ Spring/Summer 2016 creations. We must say, it’s a wild time for men’s style right now. We’re loving designers’ risks and overall confidence.

Here are some of our favorite snapshots from Jorge’s krazy life.

The hits: Supermodel Naomi Campbell murdering Riccardo Tisci’s menswear inches from Valls at the Givenchy show (automatic double tap for gender fluidity on the runway) and Thom Browne’s pop art kimonos hanging in gray space.

We’re also fans of Jorge’s images from the Lanvin and Officine Generale shows. We’re super feeling the monochrome collection from Y-3 (the adidas/Yohji Yamamoto team-up coming soon to Nordstrom). The streetwear surrealism of Hood By Air is haunting our dreams.

See Paris Fashion Week through Jorge’s eyes below, and then check his Insta for more–he’s got a ton of shots from Milan Fashion Week on there, too.

Stay tuned to this blog in advance of Father’s Day on June 21, because we’re going to hit you with can’t-miss gift ideas for Dad.

You didn’t forget, right?

Right.

Let’s start with this Nordstrom-exclusive Tie Bar Style Box. Recommended for dads who wear suits. One way to refresh your look if you’re a suit-wearer is to buy a new suit. Another way is to give new life to an already-owned suit, by styling it with fresh accessories. That’s what this Tie Bar Style Box accomplishes in one fell swoop.

Give Dad this lavender-toned box of socks, pocket squares, neckties and a bow tie, and tell him to wear it with anything blue. And brown shoes.

Let’s take a closer look inside the box, shall we?

GIF Shop: Swim Trunks

swim-trunks-mens-shop-daily-nordstrom

Swimwear comes with 101 questions: trunks, board shorts or briefs? Bright or subdued? Geometric, colorblocking, solids, animal or tropical print?

But decisions must be made.

While you might consider this a utility garment, the choice is an opportunity for expression–a chance to wear your heart on your shorts, if you will.

We’re digging these tropical styles for summer. But really it comes down to what you’re feeling.

What to wear for spring? How to rock spring shoes? In this series we’ll look at five spring shoes and show you two ways to wear each, with guidance from our Men’s Styling Manager Danny Mankin. Because life is better with options.

Here’s the thing about blue: it goes with blue. Of course not all blues are equal, but if you’re in the general sphere of light blue or dark blue, feel free to add layers within that category. Don’t worry that the blues aren’t exactly the same. Khaki goes with everything, too, and the colors look great together. Boat shoes look horrible with socks; don’t ever do it. But nobody has to know if you’d rather wear no-show socks. Because sweat does indeed happen.”

Outfit 2: Grayers Sweater | Jack Spade short

“This is a sockless shoe, period. And it looks great with a trouser or a short. As the weather warms up, swap out your wools for cotton and linen, like these pants. And if it’s hot enough–and you feel up to the challenge of looking dressy while still wearing shorts (you can do it!)–consider a tailored-fitting short and long sleeves. This choice allows you to roll up your sleeves and unbutton your shirt for a more casual situation.”

How to Dress Like Don Draper

What would Don Draper do? Careful down that road. You might end up wasted, fired or worse.

But what would Don Draper wear? Better question.

The enigmatic and pathological main character of AMC’s Mad Men TV show dresses sharp, with a “classic gentleman” look built on straightforward ties, tan car coats, oxfords or derby shoes–and when stepping out: black tuxedo.

To really get in touch with Draper’s style, remember consistency is key. Pretty much the only change in his wardrobe as Mad Men arced from the 1960s to the 1970s was that he started wearing more stripes.

Clothes and accessories to keep you draped up and dripped out, so to speak:

All images by Barb Penoyar and Studio N

From Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade to rapper Kendrick Lamar to our friends at Street Etiquette, men everywhere are sporting the crucial evolution in trousers known as jogger pants. And it’s easy to understand why.

Besides being abnormally comfortable (many have elastic at the waist as well as the cuffs), they cut a lean, tapered silhouette that shows off your favorite shoes, without pesky concerns about rolling or hemming your pant leg.

Keep reading to see three ways to wear them: on the weekend, at the office and for a date.
