wolf and shepherd shoe review

Are there any great dress shoes out there that are not Good Year Welted, Hand Welted, Blake Stitched or something similar?  Put a different way, are there any quality dress shoes that are of a glued or cemented construction?  Conventional menswear knowledge would say no, there are not any.  I tend to follow this school of thought.  Although there...

Let’s talk about something new this week: denim. Specifically white denim; often referred to as white jeans. Perhaps surprisingly, I am a big fan of white jeans and wear with moderate frequency. Although oddly, I do not wear blue jeans, and probably never will; it is just a personal preference, they aren’t my style. So for today, let’s stick...

A few weeks ago New York City was blessed with the opening of the Drake's store, located at 39.5 Crosby st.  Drake's has long been one of my favorite men's accessory brands so I felt it fitting to stop by the store to check it out. For those of you that are unfamiliar with Drake's it is a London based...

Beckett Simonon has been on the radar for almost five years now. Initially launching in mid-late 2012, I reviewed them in early 2014. However, since that time the brand has effectively re-launched. Which means it is time to do another review of Beckett Simonon’s shoes. Founded by Andres Nino and Nicholas Hurtado in 2012, Becket Simonon (link) was originally based...

The Fourth of July is unquestionably the most American holiday.  Like many holidays, the Fourth has a 'dress code' of sorts.  It is often the spoken but not required sort, unless of course the host of a party dictates it.  Red, white and blue are the colors of the day (and weekend).  There are thousands of ways to wear...

Gentlemen, The times are changing (scary, I know), the menswear blogging/content game isn't just about written content like it was 6 years ago when I got into this.  Now we have Instagram, Snap Chat and YouTube; among other things.  In an effort to continue providing all of you with the best content that I can, The Fine Young Gentleman has...

nvsbl undershirt review

Undershirts are not something I have made a habit of wearing or writing about. Largely because undershirts have not had a place in my wardrobe, they have not been discussed on The Fine Young Gentleman. In fact, I’ve actively avoided discussing them. But I figure after six years of writing this site, some things can change. Sometimes change is...

nfl draft philadelphia stage 2017 small

We are long overdue for a post, and this post itself is a bit late.  But I would be remiss if I did not address the NFL draft that occurred in Philadelphia a few weeks ago.  Not only out of a love of menswear, but also as a matter of civic pride. Being the loyal Philadelphian that I am, I...

great leather dress sneaker review m gemi

The first online menswear wave came in the form of brands focused on accessories, shirts and suits. Now it is the wave of shoe brands that are helping guys dress better. Many focus on differentiation by product, others by business model and others by provenance of production. One such brand of this beautiful wave of shoes is M.Gemi. In...

It's been a while since I've done some celebrity critiquing and a few of you have called me out on it.  So, back by popular demand is a critique of the men's style at the 2017 Golden Globes.  I should say that I did not watch the televised event so I have certainly missed some ensembles so I am...
