oliver wicks blue tweed suit with boots

Donegal tweed is a fabric, as with most tweeds, typically reserved for the cooler months.  Its distinguishing characteristic is the colored flecks, often in random or bright colors, that litter the surface of the fabric.  Most commonly, Donegal tweeds are found in grays and blues, sometimes in brown.  Oliver Wicks has great versions of the fabric in blue and...

Jay Butler Olive Green Suede Penny Loafer 2

It is far from too late to finish up your Christmas shopping. And if you are anything like me, you are just beginning to do your shopping; even though I made my list of what I wanted weeks ago.  Time is of the essence so I'm not going to bother with much small talk.  Just a few words about...

how to wear blue flannel suit with tweed pants

Flannel is to winter as linen is to summer.  Just a little more formal.  And perhaps just a little more famous.  Connery wore it as Bond on numerous occasions and then there was that movie about The Man In The Grey Flannel Suit...  But those were both long before my time (and likely some of yours).  Since then, flannel...

indochino navy pinstripe suit eyefuck

Leading the charge on the online made to measure industry is Indochino, in terms of size and money raised.  Indochino is also leading the movement into brick and mortar from online.  That movement started with their traveling tailor series, which has since evolved into full time showrooms.  One of which is in Philadelphia, we will have more on that...

A few weeks back I was at an event conversing with an older gentleman.  It was quite a nice conversation and then it turned to men's dress and it got even better.  I often enjoy talking with guys from a previous generation than mine about men's dress. We often hear or read about an era when gentlemen dressed like 'gentlemen'. ...

jay butler black leather duffel bag with strap

As time goes on and the seasons change, I thought it wise to expand the offerings over at Jay Butler.  Hopefully you all will agree with me that the new offerings make a nice addition to the line.  First, we have 2 new colorways for the Cromwell penny loafer; an unlined brown perforated and an olive green suede.  Then...

butler luxury wood hanger

In the past I have reviewed Butler Luxury’s hangers. Rather favorably, at that. They were then and still are are some of, if not the best hangers one can buy. The question is more are they worth the money. At $38, they are far from cheap. If you have 10 suits and want to hang each of them on...

GQ BLOOMINGDALES event

Greetings Readers, In recent months, as you may have known, I have been devoting a vast majority of my efforts toward Jay Butler.  Sadly, The Fine Young Gentleman has been the primary party to suffer from this, posts have slowed and my responses to emails have been delayed.  However, progress does continue; both for Jay Butler and The Fine Young...

mens summer layering orange vest 2

Layering is not just limited to fall and winter. It can be equally useful in the spring and summer, especially for those of us traveling to slightly cooler climates (think Maine, Nantucket or the Adirondacks).  You know, those days where it is 75 and sunny during the day but drops down to a cool 60 at night.  Fog may or...

benchmark bags brown leather duffel bag review

A good leather weekender is an easy thing to come by, actually. Finding one that is of good quality and doesn’t cost more than $500 is quite hard. And frankly, there aren’t many options. More often than not, ones that I have seen of leather that are for less than $500 are often of sub-par quality leather; which just...
