over the calf casual socks

There is something that draws me to over the calf socks these days.  Although I am not completely against the wearing of mid calf socks, I don't care to talk about them on this here blog.  A policy which has caused me to send numerous sock companies the other way.  Many of which focus on casual mid calf socks,...

hacking pockets and peak lapeled jacket

It is a simple concept really.  There are certain aspects of a suit that are derived from sport and country pursuits (think tweed, ticket pockets, hacking pockets, center vents, throat latches etc.) and then there are those details that are traditionally suited for 'city' or 'business' suits (peak lapels, pinstripes, worsteds, double breasted closure etc).  So these things should...

cable knit wool hat

Many of the reviews I write on this site are for specific brands, not of stores.  I feel like the format of this blog and its reviews are more fitting for brands and their specific products.  So when Linkson from Linkson Jack first contacted me about doing a review I was a bit hesitant.  However, upon taking a more...

mens tweed jacket

I was in a particularly long church service yesterday and as good as some of what I heard was, my mind did tend to drift elsewhere.  Much of the time I was drifting I spent looking into the fabric of the tweed jacket I was wearing.  It was the first time I had the opportunity to wear the jacket...

Among other traditions my family has every Christmas season, one of my favorites is to put up lights on the outside of the house.  This was the first year we put...

Industry Portage tote bag

Shortly after my write up on Cool Materials went live I received an email from RJ Diaz, the man behind Industry Portage; a company that I had never heard of until then.  So I did my usual dissection of the brand's website and to be honest, I was quite mixed on what I saw.  Some of the items I...

why to not wear logos

As of late, there seems to be a movement away from branded apparel and accessories.  I believe this holds true for both luxury and non luxury apparel and goods.  And frankly, few things could make me happier.  As a high school and college student I could often be caught in a polo or button up/down shirt with some type...

Perhaps too late for some of you, too early for others and then unnecessary for the rest of you.  But regardless, I feel obligated to cull together a Christmas list for all of you looking to better either yours or someone else's wardrobe.  Some of these products you may be already familiar with if you've been reading this blog...

fort belvedere menswear review

It was over a year ago that I first spoke to Sven Raphael Schneider of Gentleman's Gazette about his plan to launch his own menswear brand.  I remember walking around my office in circles while chatting on the phone with him, it was a great way to procrastinate doing my actual work, which at the time was accounting and...
