Man Fashion News: McQueen's Death hurts Fashion World

Yes, there are other big names: Vivienne Westwood, Stella McCartney and Paul Smith come to mind. But the sudden death of Alexander McQueen leaves a gaping hole at the center of London as well as the world fashion universe.

McQueen was Britain's shooting star, a man who helped make London cool again in the 1990s. And his personal history helped inspire others.

The son of a London cabbie, the youngest of six siblings, McQueen was a product of the streets, not a posh dilettante with a wealthy family to back his fashion whims.

Now he is gone, due to an apparent suicide that has not been confirmed by his family or the police. And fashion insiders don't see any heir apparent to the enfant terrible who turned catwalk shows into memorable works of performance art.

So what left behind was two unseen collections: one to be shown at Paris Fashion Week and one that was meant to be presented on the day of his death announcement, for his secondary line McQ.

New York Fashion Week: Marc by Marc Fall 2010 Collection

Marc Jacobs sat cross-legged on the floor backstage before his second runway show of the week. This one was for his secondary Marc by Marc line, which has a younger, more price conscious following than his signature line. Chatting calmly amidst a tangle of electrical wires, he didn’t look like a guy with stage fright.

As a secondary line, Marc by Marc may not generate nerves for the designer, but it does provide most of Mr. Jacob’s customers, so it’s a key collection.

Focus on melton wool trenches and cargo pants in olive drab; khaki twill rucksacks; even a black flight suit. And for your off-duty trips: cuffed sweatpants, herringbone overcoats, and a sharp patch-pocket wool blazer in subtle plaid.

Find out some of the latest ready to wear here.

It can make an outfit totally different in style for a great looking. Today's belts come from a variety of designers and styles as well as a multitude of prices ranges. Whether you have to wear your belt for work or dress code, or simply like the look of a belt, you can learn how to wear it properly and complete your outfit.

Identify your occasion. A formal occasion, professional environment, or a semi-formal occasion will always call for a belt. Wear a leather or other classy material for less formal occasions. Select a cloth, or other variety of casual material for daily wear.

Choose a color for your belt. Wear a black belt with every black suit or dark colored pant. Match a brown belt to khaki or other variety of brown. Use your style judgment for other colors like white, navy blue, or greens to ensure that your belt complements your outfit rather than contrasts it. Wear any belt with jeans.


Wrap your belt through all belt loops on your pants, bringing the tail around your waist to the front. Secure you belt by placing the tail end into the buckle and securing with the metal prongs or fastener. Ensure that your belt is tight enough to keep your pants up, but loose enough so as to allow your waist to be uncompressed.
