What’s Your Color?

StdAthleticColorsGIFOne of the best ways to fashionably stand out is through color. A bold flash of color catches the eye and can pull a whole look together. The right color can also take an outfit from common to classy.  Since everything we do at Joseph Wendt Custom Clothiers is all about doing it “custom,” it is all about you!

Most men don’t want to think too much about the colors that look best on them, or try on a rainbow of shirts to see which matches their skin tone. They want to be in and out of the store.  But just like wearing the wrong size, the wrong color for the situation can make you look awkward and uncomfortable, and completely ruin your look. So try on all those colors, you’ll be glad that you did!

Now, while different occasions do indeed call for different colors, you can find different shades of the required color to make you look your best. You can also choose a textured fabric to give your look even more depth.

Remember, different colors can give off different vibes. For instance, black, navy, and red are “power” colors, while paler blues, greens, and yellows give off a more relaxed feel. We can help you pick and choose how you want to style your look based on the occasion, and your personality.

Some colors are pretty universally flattering, such as eggplant, teal, navy, emerald green, and blush. Our stores are stocked with tons and tons of fabric books, which make finding a unique match just for you easy. Coloring is just another perk of custom clothing! We create your whole outfit to make you look your very best with color and cut, individually tailored to you (pun intended).

Also, all coloring guidelines are just that, guidelines! If you want to rock a certain popular color, go for it! Fashion is all about trying new things, because, as always, if you look good, you feel good.

New NFL Uniforms

Our beloved football season is almost here again, and what better way to celebrate than with a quick look at the minor “fashion” changes in the league this year.  Namely, the new uniforms three teams have adopted.  Let’s dive right in!

Minnesota Vikings

130425090849-adrian-peterson-minnesota-vikings-uniform-single-image-cutVery nice.  Very, very nice.  The Vikings have fully embraced their true purple color scheme now, eliminating the white and yellow highlights nearly across the board, and brightening the purple to a much more vibrant shade.  The leg stripes are gone altogether, while the sleeve stripes have been greatly minimized. There’s also some minor, nifty altered touches to the fonts on the uniforms, too.

logoThe logo was only slightly changed, with the viking’s hair braids a bit looser, his horns a bit more curved.  Don’t mess with a classic!  This is  a pitch perfect modernization of an otherwise set-in-stone, and classic look.  Perfect.

Miami Dolphins

temp_OZA4342--nfl_mezz_1280_1024_originalLess perfect, but still pretty good.  The colors appear to have been made more vibrant, just like the Vikings upgrade, and the fonts have been made more futuristic.  The orange in the uniforms has all but disappeared, relegated to only minor touches here and there.

tempEMMS9576--nfl_mezz_1280_1024_crop_exactThe logo, on the other hand, has undergone a complete makeover, with the old dolphin, which had barely changed since the team’s inception, replaced with an entirely new one.  It’s in a different position than the old, and instead of leaning down, as if jumping through something, is now pointed upwards, soaring into a jump.  We’re not sure about it, it’s a bit bland, and the old logo, though it was kind of silly, was honestly lovable.

Jacksonville Jaguars

BIjcNWpCQAANBKG.jpg large…Oh.  Oh, dear.  Well, points for trying something new, at least.  This one is a nearly complete overhaul, and virtually eliminates the teal in the uniform in favor of black and more black.  Do we really need another all-black uniform in the league?  But the minor details are a bit bonkers.  It looks like they’re trying to attract the middle school set…  Circa 1993.  Everything is XTREEEEM (if you were a kid in the late ’80s/early ’90s, you will instantly know what we mean)!  The spikes on the fonts, and the stripes on the shoulders look more at home on a supervillan than a football team.  And what’s with the sleeves being different colors?  We are not fans.

jaghelmetAgh!  What?  The logo has been updated a bit, with slightly altered, more rounded and realistic features on the Jaguar head: this we like.  But a two-tone helmet?  It’s unique, we’ll give them that, but it looks a little too much like a college team, to be honest.  They could look truly awful in bright Florida sunshine.
