On February 2, Punxsutawney Phil failed to see his shadow, thus predicting an early spring this year. However, in Minnesota, we know that Mother Nature is sometimes fickle, and oftentimes defies augury.  We’ve come to learn that as we transition from February into March, our weather can be sunny and dry one day, followed by a snow storm the next.  Uncertainty is the only certainty when it comes to late winter months in Minnesota.

What is certain though, is that the men in Minneapolis will handle whatever weather is thrown at them, with the style and form that has become their trademark. Wether March greets us as a lamb or a lion, Minneapolis men will meet it with their own particular iconic style, that assures us that spring is just around the corner.

As we journey through these final weeks of winter, on our way to spring, I thought I’d share with you some of the great looks worn by the men of Minneapolis.

This outfit shows a great use of color and focus. The plaid jacket becomes the central theme and everything builds around it.  The royal blue cap matches perfectly the blue strip in the jacket, while the tan pants and golden/tan shoes are reflected in the cream and orange stripes.

Traditional, classic looks never go out of style, and are a timeless comfort during the dark winter months.

By the end of January, "cabin fever" starts to set in and we begin to see brighter colors make their appearance in our wardrobes to chase away the winter "blahs".

Even standard work apparel shows off a bit of color and whimsy in February.

Layers and textures of shirts, sweaters and jackets, become more prominent as heavy winter coats are shed on some of the warmer late February days.

Younger and "hipper" looks show off their own unique take on more traditional styles.

Finally, in March, wonderful pastel shades of color make their appearance to remind us that spring is indeed just around the corner.
