Men Men Men...Manly Man Part Dos

Let's see how the markets are doing and what we can expect going forward.

So, technology helped boost the markets today, and DOW was at its highest since August. Since Eurozone is still waiting for some clarification on its financial standing, this news is not curtailing the market's movement. The holiday season is upon us, well almost, and we shall closely  monitor the consumer industry which will not only drive the market sentiments but economic sentiments as well. So, let's see what direction we headed in. I am hopeful because I feel that US is gaining growth numbers - slowly but surely.

And, now we are back to men. As in men fashion!

The spring 2012 menswear so far has been an interesting  mix of cuts, colors and coats. Although there is not much in terms of varieties, I mean its all about pants, shirts, pants rolled up into shorts, sweaters, coats, pants, but still there is ample style to celebrate and to look forward to. One trend that I noticed (like with women's fashion) was cropped tops that, according to me, sat a bit awkwardly on the torso. Honestly, not a big fan, but I will share with you, nonetheless.

I can very well share a million images here, but that would be utterly silly. So, I will share with you top looks from my favorite designers. Howzzaat? With me?
