This week, we look at some fun and festive Holiday party attire.
This week we look at some the basics of Men's sweaters.
With the colder weather hitting the north, its a perfect time to look at some of the basics of Men's Sweaters.
Our video goes through the basics of the Crew Neck, V Neck, Cardigan, Cable Knit and Turtleneck. The most popular fabrics are wool, cotton, cashmere and blends. It's important to buy a sweater that is comfortable yet you want to make sure it fits properly. Often times, guys buy sweaters that are too big and it tends to look sloppy. The V neck is a definitely a flattering look and should be an important part of the winter wardrobe.
Proper care is important, make sure you read the label and never hand your sweaters as this will typically stretch out the shape of it and also leave "hanger dimples" in the shoulders.
If you still need an ugly sweater for a party this season, check out the fun sweater's at Nordstrom, as shown below.
There's a lot of buzz around our cufflink vending machine in Toronto's Yorkville neighbourhood. CTV News got in touch:
Cuffwear president Chris Zownir says the high-tech, touchscreen-enabled vending machines are a "fun user experience," and far more advanced than the typical candy bar dispenser.
"The machine is made in Italy, it's a very sexy-looking machine, and so I think people are just drawn over by the appearance of it," Zownir told CTVNews.ca by phone on Wednesday.
The Cuffwear vending machine has 42 cufflink styles on display in a purple LED-lit glass display case. Customers use a touchscreen interface to pick the cufflinks they want, then charge the purchase ($65 per pair) to their credit card. The machine uses a mechanical tray to retrieve the pre-gift-wrapped cufflinks and deposit them to the customer.
Zownir says it made a lot of sense to put cufflinks in a vending machine. The one-size-fits-all, often-changed (and easily lost) fashion accessories are a hot item among fashion-forward men.
"Guys that love wearing cufflinks, it's just an easy fit," Zownir said. He added that he's also seen many women use the vending machine to buy cufflinks as gifts for the men in their lives.
