Gentlemen are not Extinct! ... They could easily be Found at the Fabiani F/W 2012 Show on Thursday Night at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Jo'burg ...

Dapper Men with slick hair walked down the ramp wearing attire that every Stylish Man should own; Coats, Crisp Collared Shirts, Preppy Cardigans, Striped Jumpers, Tuxedo Jackets, Jeans and  Trousers. Pants just grazed the ankle in order to reveal contrasting colourful socks which usually matched the Bowtie/Tie or showed a bare ankle paying tribute to the Colour Blocking Trend.

The Colour Blocking Trend was evident but slightly muted to fit the Season — Black Jackets had Cobalt Tipping, Black Brogues were accented with Colourful Laces, Striking Red Soled Shoes and the item that stood out most was the Navy Loafers with the Neon Tipping.

The Sophisticated Collection is Accessorised with Horn-rimmed spectacles, Briefcases oversized Bowties (that added a quirky touch to evening wear), Vintage Walking Canes Fedora's and Skinny Circle Scarves.

The Popular Shoe Choice for the Show was either a Brogue or a Loafer but Short and Mid-Calf Boots also made an appearance.

The Best part about the Show was the Beautiful English Bulldog ... Most Definitely my Favorite Accessory of the Evening!

All I can say is: Gents get a Good Jacket or Coat for Winter 2012 (and maybe an English Bull Dog to attract the Ladies) ... or better yet, Suit Up!
