How to shop for men’s shoes and cologne
Men’s nightwear is becoming more popular with young women as a way to wear with the men in their lives.
And now, they’re getting a little more attention in their choice of footwear, too.
The latest trends are starting to show up in men’s shoe and colognes, as a growing number of retailers are offering the men’s fashion trend a try.
But before you get too excited about those new men’s footwear, here’s what you need to know about them.

But in recent years, men have also begun to embrace the idea of wearing hoodies or nightshirts in public places, especially with events like men’s weddings and funerals.
This year, men are going back to wearing their own clothing on public occasions in an attempt to be more respectful.
“I just feel like there’s a certain amount of dignity in the way you dress and the way your appearance is.
I want to be seen in a way that’s respectful,” said Michael DeLuca, a 22-year-old in Boston.
“I’ve always felt comfortable in my own skin.”
This year, the men and women of Boston are wearing their hoodies and evening wear at their weddings, and they’re also taking advantage of the fact that there are no official men’s wedding events this year.
The trend has also begun gaining popularity in men, who are dressing up in traditional wedding attire for events like weddings, baptisms, funerals and funerary services.
“My friends and I love to wear a tie or a blazer, and I think a jacket with a tie is a great thing to have in your closet,” said Daniel D. Pemberton, a 23-year old in Boston, who recently attended a wedding in Florida.
“For a lot of people, it’s a symbol of social acceptance.”
These days, there’s been a push by men in the community to dress up in their own cologne or hoodie, which is why it’s becoming popular with younger generations of men.
“We’re definitely in a period where men are more open to wearing what they want, even though it may be a more casual style,” said Mark D. Olliffe, a 36-year veteran of the men who runs Boston’s Pipes and Cigars department.
Olliffe said the trend has been especially popular in Boston’s gay and lesbian community, and he believes it’s also been picked up by other young men.”[I] have friends who are in their 20s who wear a lot more traditional [day] dress,” Ollife said.
“It’s become an issue that I don’t have a problem with.”
This trend has spread to other cities too, including New York City, Chicago and New Jersey.
The biggest change for young men this year is that they’re starting to wear nightshirts instead of hoodies, and it’s an effort to make sure that their attire doesn’t appear too revealing.
“In the past, it was the older guys who were wearing hoodie’s, and that’s the style that I’ve grown out of,” said Zachary B. Hockley, who’s 17 and in his first year of college.
“But now, the younger guys are also going to be wearing hooded tops.
It’s a little different, and a little less revealing.”
For many, the best cologna is the men themselves.
“For me, it doesn’t matter what I’m wearing; I’m just wearing what I like,” said Matt C. Bostock, a 19-year man from Washington, D.C. “My goal is to dress as my personality, my style, and the shoes that I like.”
