It's no secret that everything the Olsen twins touch turns to gold, whether it's a trend or a business endeavor (and they've proven themselves to be more than successful in the latter- just look to The Row and Elizabeth & James, plus their shoe and jewelry lines). Their latest move? They've signed a deal with JCPenney to design a juniors brand called Olsenboye. Clearly aimed at the younger crowd, the line will contain denim, tees, and other casual looks including shoes and bags, all priced between $20 and $50. It'll be available in 50 JCPenney stores and online starting November 6th! If you can't wait until then and are in the NYC area today, stop by Washington Square park and catch the Olsenboye Treat Truck where you can preview the collection.

I have a philosophy that men should have a solid assortment of neutral-colored pieces in their wardrobe-- and when I say neutral, I am not just referring to black. I am referring to the earthy prismatic rainbow that includes gray, khaki, brown, navy and, of course, the good ol' standby, black. Choosing neutral pieces is like picking a canvas for you to paint on. When choosing something like a Ralph Lauren poplin barrel shirt, think of a pop of color that would compliment it (I'll go over choosing fun colors later). The best thing about neutral colored clothing is that it goes with just about everything, which makes it anything but boring. You can even go with neutral accessories that stand in the background of your colorful garb. A khaki Kenneth Cole messenger bag is a universal accessory as is the neutral colorblock tie by Thomas Pink. The trick about neutrals is to have a balance, because if you wear too much black, you run the risk of looking like an undertaker-- and no one wants that. Take a look at my slideshow for more neutrals to choose from.
