yes you can: color

you are a fearless, powerful, super masculine man's man.  and since you are such a man you have no need to fear color.  say it with me: yes you can!  am i suggesting you pair salmon khakis with a blue striped shirt, a purple sweater vest and some oxblood boots?  absolutely not.  but i am saying a punch of color is the perfect way to put a modern twist on any outfit.  take some inspiration from the new j.crew men's catalogue shown above.  sub that plain pale blue button up for one in bright blue gingham.  replace that silver watch with an army green one.  take off those brown lace up shoes and a replace them with a pair of navy boots.  or blow my mind by throwing on a piece of red mewelry (that's a stretch but i think you can handle a subtle bracelet).  if there's any new year's resolution you need to make for 2013 it's color!
