best custom shirts in nyc

The best custom shirts in NYC?  That's an aggressive question to answer as well as a bold implication.  I cannot say that the shirts that The Sock Hop makes out of its small Nolita store (I don't think anyone truly knows the borders of the neighborhoods down there) are the best in NYC they are certainly some of the...

mens ski socks

I have numerous obsessions and addictions in my life.  Men's style being an obvious one to all of you.  And as you can imagine, within mens style there are many items that would quality as their own obsessions; if you've been reading my ranting for a while you can probably guess what some of them are.  But one that...

velasca shoe review

I was approached a few months back by the good people at Velasca because they were interested in a Velasca shoe review appearing on this here blog.  At the time, I had only recently heard of the brand, and I had never seen the shoes in person before.  Which I now know is because they do not have a...

mrket nyc

Of the shows that I went to this season MRket is the one that has to most crossover with my style.  It is also the one that I have spent the most time at in the past so it is always nice to see familiar faces and brands; which can make for a hectic yet fun day.  That said,...

liberty fair nyc

Another show worthy of discussion is Liberty Fairs.  Liberty is quite new, I think this was only its second season, so the fact that it is of such size is surprising to me.  The feel at Liberty is somewhat similar to Project, although more workweary, if that makes any sense.  So much like Project, much of what is at...

how to wear gray shoes men

First off, let's agree on the fact that it is okay for men to wear gray dress shoes.  I realize that it is not acceptable in all settings.  I think I've only seen another guy wear them once or twice in the wild.  But just because something is not done often, does not mean that it is not okay. ...

As expected our beloved musicians turned out in all forms of dress for this years Grammys.  And as expected, most of them looked like fools.  Although I did not watch the show, I did watch many of the performances on Youtube and am really impressed.  There was some amazing talent and creativity on display.  Macklemore's Same Love being my...

This seasons (well, actually its for FW/2015) Project NYC show had a good showing.  Admittedly, much of what is shown at the show is not my style, but I still really enjoy attending the show and seeing what some brands are churning out these days.  So as I perused the aisles of the show I picked out a few...

Black Lapel custom suit review

It has been a year and a half since I first reviewed Black Lapel.  Which in terms of the online made to measure suiting industry, which is still in its infancy, is a very long time.  There has been a steady influx of new players and the steady growth of old players; Black Lapel belongs in the latter category...

In case you are not in the know the Northeast received a rather sizable dose of snow over the past 24 hours (I measured 9" at my house in Bryn Mawr).  Minus my original train to NYC being cancelled today, I couldn't be happier about the snow; I just wish I had more time to enjoy it.  Admittedly, I...
