MH Style January/February 2013: Black Tie Affair 2: Opulence at The Soiree

It is a new year and January is always an inspirational time for the gentleman on the move.  That means that there will be a lot of social gatherings for one to attend.  And we’re not talking your average meet-and-greet after work or a networking event.  What we’re talking about are those all important career moving hobnobbing soiree’s, where gentlemen will be seen and heard.  Think of it as the annual Grammy, Oscar and Golden Globe event of your life.  


Thus, to get you dressed for the event, Man Of The Hour has returned with a second edition of our most popular men’s style presentation ever (the first was off the chains).  


So take a look at what 2013 has to offer you in the way of black tie garments and accessories, for you to best your best, at your best, while being the man of the hour. - David Adam Nole
