In this editorial from L’Officiel Hommes Thailand, a male model favorite Travis Smith dons apparel from designers like Paul Smith, Prada, Louis Vuitton and more. In one shot I was surprised to see Travis in nothing but Tom Ford (the scent); a clever way of styling.
It’s so rare to see a model wear the clothes and not let the clothes wear him. Beauty has a new meaning and it’s all about owning every aspect of yourself- flaws, imperfections and your best features. Clothes do not make the man. Man makes himself and lets the fabric tell his story.

Sport is in.
We are embracing the fit and fun lifestyle of staying in shape and with it comes not only the attire taking a step up, but a slew of fashion powerhouses implementing the scents that embodies this way of life.
It’s more than just smelling good at any point. Sport scents have a captivating power and can make a great statenment in a subtle manner, especially since they are specifically designed to be worn casually.
Here are a few scents that are sure to hit the right note.
Level37- Scented Luxury
DIOR HOMME SPORT
GIVENCHY PLAY SPORT
DOLCE & GABBANA THE ONE SPORT
Prep is now a part of the system- the olfactory.
Tommy Hilfiger hits it right on the nose with their scent Eau De Prep. If one finds himself having difficulty pulling off the look, at least he can find solace in pulling off the scent.
According to the leader of prep, it’s never too late to leave a smart impression.
Spritz-able style? They’re making it too easy.
Level37- Bottled Up
The trail which is unseen yet compels its passers-by to follow and track is the one of the scent.
Choosing the right fragrance to conform to your body chemistry is crucial to leaving the right impression. Each stitch and thread can be in the perfect place to get noticed but to turn heads- the secret is in the spritz. The key is to try a few scents that truly work for you and once you’ve got the notes down, you’ll be at pro status.
But here is something to remember: Quality Over Quantity. A little always goes a long way (at times more than you could have imagined). One press of the nozzle too many and you can come off as the man who doesn’t know himself enough and probably still has some growing up to do.
Level37- Fragrance Freedom
KENNETH COLE REACTION
CALVIN KLEIN EUPHORIA
BLEU DE CHANEL
