Tailoring goes architectural at The Dubai Mall. Move past the formulaic suiting with soft layers, bold outerwear and contemporary silhouettes

A decade of sartorial excellence? Now, that's something worth celebrating. The Dubai Mall -and its luxe Fashion Avenue- is our kind of style nirvana: a do-it-all destination that sorts out every elementof a man's wardrobe. But you already knew that, right?

Seek Impact
Important update: style doesn't have to be complicated. Sometimes, a bold jacket - pumped up by logomania - can carry an entire look

Call in the Subs
The day you swap out your suit jacket is a day of true style empowerment. All of a sudden, anything's possible. Coats! Denim! Handsome-as anything leather! Think of it as a power move for your torso.

Soften Up
Harsh shoulders and stiff shirts are becoming relics of a bygone era. Instead, make like an Italian and for for unlined jackets and layers. Bellisimo!

Make Unexpected Allies
One of the great things about the menswear moment we're in is that things that shouldn't work together really do. Exhibit A: a turtleneck and chunky sneakers.
