>>> all right. we all have that one favorite old item in our closet that makes our significant other cringe when we wear it in public.

>> we found three guys who were willing to throw away that beloved piece of furniture for a style upgrade. here to reveal the new look, the men's editor.

>> good to see you.

>> you too, brother.

>> we're going to bring a dose of spring into the chilly day.

>> all right.

>> let's roll right into it. let's take a look, before, we've got emily and brent. this is brent's look, the front-pleated khaki.

>> we have serious excess fabric problem here going on with the shirt and trousers. before we dwell any more on this. can we show this after look?

>> yes.

>> better, right?

>> well, brett, you're 27, right? wait until you're 50 to dress like you're 50.

>> understood. understood.

>> we put a casual blazer from h & m on and made him look younger and hipper. a printed shirt, let's face it, you may not be able to wear at every office. and off-white jeans. the traditional rule is don't wear white until after memorial day . at, we're about breaking the rules. the key is to look like you know what you're doing.

>> i love this look. it's a big improvement.

>> do you think he'll actually wear it?

>> maybe not the button down shirt, but i think i can get the rest.

>> oh.

>> let's go.

>> all right.

>> let it go. let it go.

>> gone.

>> all right.

>> freedom.

>> okay. next up, olivia. your boyfriend mike is constantly lounging around on the weekends with this sweatshirt.

>> yes. yes. and i think it's a great sweatshirt, but i think it'd be better to wear going back to the university.

>> good point.

>> come on out. come on out, mike.

>> there he is. there he is.

>> looking good, man.

>> the college look is in. there's a difference between embracing the look and wearing the stuff you wore in college. there comes a time to let that look go. we've got a look going on here but got color. you're going to need the layering. the cold winter , going to be a cold spring . well, who am i to talk? you tell me.

>> you're doing great.

>> mike, you like this look?

>> yeah, love it. it's comfortable and, you know, go straight to work in this.

>> are you willing to give up the brown golf sweatshirt?

>> my golf coach won't be happy about it.

>> but guess what, you're not married to the golf coach. all right? who are you going home to, okay?

>> drop it, it's gone. boom.

>> all right.

>> big moment.

>> by the way, we're setting fire to this garbage can when this is over.

>> let's move over here. taisha, let's take a look at this spring wedding look, i guess.

>> not so bad, right? but to me it's a little bit 2004 . let's bring luis into 2014 .

>> i agree.

>> let's get rid of that blousy suit. come on out.

>> oh, man.

>> yes, sir, right?

>> the key is to put in some effort and also have some fun. we've got a traditional gray color palate. fun pocket square , adds the pop of color. the fit is great. look, you're respecting the occasion, but you're ready to have a good time. that's the essence of a spring wedding. you're liking it?

>> i'm loving it.

>> ready to dump it?

>> let that thing go.

>> it's over.

>> let it go.

>> yeah!

>> whoo-hoo!

>> everybody together. come on. that's a good-looking group. all right. once again, bringing style to our men. we appreciate it. and we're back in a moment, but first this is "today" on nbc.
