Fall Fashion – What Suddenly Solo Guys Should Know

Fall Fashion – What Suddenly Solo Guys Should Know

We are under no illusions about what most of us mature men think about Fashion Week in New York (which just ended).  It’s fun to look at the pictures of celebrities . . . especially the male athletes and rockers who are clearly there just to choose their next hook-ups!   Certainly the vast majority

The Return of the Handkerchief

The Return of the Handkerchief

Although most of us only remember our father or grandfather carrying a plain white handkerchief, they are actually a very practical and dare we say, suave accessory to have.  We believe they are ready to make a big comeback and with good reason. Plain white cotton handkerchiefs (not to be confused with the decorative pocket

Stuff Guys Wear That Women Hate

We get lots of comments from women here at Suddenly Solo. Most of it is good . . . they like our mission and they agree with much of what we say. We know that women buy our book as often as men do so it’s safe to say that although we are certainly “guy-focused,”

Don’t Let Your Spectacles Make A Spectacle!

Most of us have at least one pair of glasses.  They may be reading glasses, sunglasses, bifocals, progressives, transitions, or who knows what they call them.  But, we feel very safe in stating that our Suddenly Solo noses are the resting place of some type of optical enhancement!

Time For A Change

It can be a very invigorating experience to change the way we look.  Making even minor “updates” to the person we see in the mirror can go a long way in energizing us and, in some cases, liberating us from the past.  Recognizing that we Suddenly Solos can be a little “set in our ways,”

“Bang for the Buck” Fashion

“Bang for the Buck” Fashion

We are well aware that “making a fashion statement” is probably not high up on your list of things to do.  BUT (you knew that was coming, right?) there is something positive to be said about purchasing (at a reasonable price) one or two articles of clothing or accessories that can really make a difference

“He Ain’t Got No Couth!”

“He Ain’t Got No Couth!”

I was out to dinner at a nice restaurant with some friends and I realized that the bread plates on both my left and right were already occupied with my neighbor’s rolls.  This was the result of a chain reaction when someone used the incorrect plate and then the mix-ups got compounded until the only
