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...

richard branson no ties

It is no secret that Richard Branson does not care for ties, and he's trying to convince everyone and their mom to get on his bandwagon.  He has gone so far as to promote people to carry scissors around and cut off other people's ties (which brings to mind scenes from my beloved The Wire when the homicide detectives...

camicia custom shirt review

I was approached by Camicia shirts a few months ago asking me to do a review of their shirts.  Until then I had not heard of the brand, which happens often.  There are so many custom shirt and suit brands popping up that I cannot keep track of them.  So I always like when I am approached by new...

I may regret saying this but I think the men's style at the Golden Globes may have gotten better this year.  There were some really solid looks from some gents.  And then of course there were some pretty terrible looks from others.  In all fairness to men on both sides of the spectrum (and in keeping with tradition on...

Horizontal Striped shirt

There are two things that cannot be debated regarding horizontal striped shirts.  The first is that no one did more to bring them to the forefront of people's minds than Michael Douglas as Gordon Gekko in Wall Street (and yes, as we all know Alan Flusser was the man behind Gekko's dress.  I should also note he only wears...
