ZARA Double Breasted Jacket

Dressing up for your woman on Valentine's in a suit and tie might be too formal. Do still make an effort. A double breasted jacket with jeans could offer you the right fit. Leave your Miami Vice fantasies behind. Rolling up your sleeves and winking at the waitress Don Johnson style is not sexy or cool. A much sharper, slicker affair, David Beckham and Ryan Gosling have all been rocking the DB look. Keep the bottom button undone. It's less stuffy and allows for movement.

I realise however that the best laid plans don't always go as such. Should you be required to rush out in the middle of the night to re-fuel, then this utilitarian khaki parka is a great addition to your Ibiza style survival kit. Parkers were originally worn by Inuit's and Eskimos to provide protection from the Arctic climate. Later they were adopted by the US military who created the N-3B‘snorkel' parka. Less South Park more icon. Esquire magazine recently stated “A man needs but 3 coats; a parka, an everyday one and a formal one."

Gentlemen, I hope this month's Steamy Ibiza has helped with your Valentine's Day ideas. Mostly I hope it's helped a little in bringing your Ibiza style sexy back.
