AmongMen: Buying someone a piece of fashion as a gift can be tricky – what are your tips for getting it right?
Kevin Lobo: A failsafe option is an elegant black cashmere scarf that works for both men and women. Avoid any experiments in color – stay classic!

AM: Are there any trends we should be looking out for this festive season?
KL: Sophisticated tailoring as well as beautiful qualities, rich colors and refined attention to details are trends for this festive season. A three-piece suit in combination with a white shirt and black tie is a key message. For a more flamboyant style, I would choose an elegant evening suit or even a tuxedo in black velvet for i.e. a glamorous dinner party.

AM: Do you have any tips on what to wear for different festive moments?
KL: For a glamorous party I would wear a chic, classic tuxedo, for a work party it would be an elegant three-piece suit with a peak lapel and when I’m out with friends I’ll wear a dark navy, soft constructed suit.

AM: How can you transform an outfit with just a few simple tricks if you’re heading straight out to a Christmas party from the office?
KL: In a BOSS Menswear suit a man is impeccably dressed for every occasion. Adding some accessories such as elegant patent leather shoes, a silk pocket square and a matching silk tie are a few tricks to put together a delicate look for a Christmas party.

AM: When do you start thinking about key pieces for the festive season?
KL: Since Christmas is celebrated every year, the outfit for the Christmas party as well as a few key pieces for the festive season should be selected in advance. I always try to be well prepared.

AM: Do you think that men are generally more laid back when it comes to Christmas shopping?
KL: I definitely agree, unfortunately, it’s always “last minute shopping” every year.

AM: What is your Christmas style like?
All the members of my family dress up for Christmas. My Christmas style is an elegant black evening suit with a white shirt and a silk pocket square and silk tie.

AM: Do you have any shopping tips for guys in the run up to Christmas?
The best time to go Christmas shopping is as early as possible in the year. Beautiful presents are classy, timeless presents such as a high-quality, mechanical watch, a sophisticated fragrance like BOSS Bottled or exceptional jewelry. In the run up to Christmas the HUGO BOSS online store offers a wide range of gorgeous presents. Thus, you can avoid any pre-Christmas stress.
