correct mens tie length

On a list of things most often done wrong in tailored menswear, wearing a tie at an incorrect length would likely rank in the top 3.  Fortunately, this is an easy problem to fix.  Just as easily as a man can wear his tie at an incorrect length, he can also wear it at a correct length.  So, 'how...

justin bieber terrible style

It’s time to add a rule. It’s been a while; perhaps I’m off my game of being a judgemental d-bag. Or perhaps I’ve just been a bit sidetracked. Sadly, I can’t even take credit for this one; that goes to Wil Fulton of Super Compressor. It wasn’t even a rule set forth by Wil, just a statement referring to snapback...

Over 4 years ago it was proclaimed that The Fine Young Gentleman was a reaction to all of the poorly dressed men out there. That was April 4, 2011; the post was titled 'Actions & Reactions'.  It was the first post on this blog.  It was written out of frustration and catharsis; but mostly of a desire to help men...

david fin ties label and keeper

A number of months ago I was put in touch with a precocious young man named David Herzka.  David was just in the final stages of launching his new tie brand, David Fin, which launched in late 2014 and I can say makes some very solid ties.  David told me of his affinity for ties but also of the...

Dear Readers, Over the past few weeks both content from The Fine Young Gentleman as well as an interview of myself has been posted on outlets aside from this here blog.  First, a few weeks ago an interview of myself by Eric Scriberras of MentorMe Podcast was posted.  The discussion focuses primarily on my journey to start Jay Butler and...

Ask and now you shall receive.  Apologies for missing the Golden Globes and Grammys this year, but fear not, I'm not going to skip out on all three shows.  Sadly for my judgemental side, things were looking pretty good this year.  But as always, there were a few guys who just couldn't pull it together.  Aside from some snarky...

knot standard mtm tweed jacket

It was nearly two years ago that I first reviewed Knot Standard. The review was pretty positive, however, there were a few marks against the brand. A few months back we decided to do another review of Knot Standards custom suits and jackets, in this case just a jacket. I’m glad Knot Standard and I gave it a second...

tips for good mtm suit

Made to measure suits have been written about a lot on this web site.  A LOT (I think I have reviewed more made to measure brands than anyone else on the web). However, in most cases I am either reviewing a made to measure suit brand or advising guys that made to measure is a superior alternative to off...

Dear Readers, Not realizing that it had been almost 3 weeks since my last post I knew I had to get something up ASAP. I am sorry for being so absent the last few weeks, I've been a bit consumed by other activities (like shoes).  Fortunately, some of my menswear writer friends have been keeping to putting out some original...
