cobbler union boot review

For the past few years we have seen the online-only market for suits, shirts, ties and accessories blossom.  The lagging category has been shoes; until recently Meermin was the most prominent name.  Over the past year there have been a few brands of note that have entered the online market place; Awl & Sundry, Jack Erwin, Paul Evans, Jay...

unugly christmas sweater

There is something unappetizing about ugly Christmas sweater parties.  Maybe it's the fact that they are in fact ugly and I don't particularly care to wear ugly clothing.  Or maybe I am just a grinch.  Or maybe it is just one of my arguably irrational dislikes of certain items of clothing, like demin (yes, that's right, I don't wear...

If you are anything like me, you are just now starting to do your Christmas shopping.  As much as I vow to myself to get the task done in the earlier part of December, I almost always fail.  It can be frustrating.  But fortunately, as men, we no longer have to be slaves to the masses in the malls;...

blackfriday

In less than 48 hours the irrationality (or some think rationality) of American consumers will be put on display for the world to see.  Of you can just refer to the image to the left.  Admittedly, Black Friday is not my favorite day of the year; neither is Cyber Monday for that matter.  But I do recognize that a...

mens white shirts

Necessity can be sometimes pleasing and other times an annoyance.  But excess can be a beautiful thing.  There are certain things a man needs in his wardrobe.  Of those certain things, there are some that he cannot have to many of; such as solid white shirts. I believe that at last count I have 18.  It is guaranteed that that...

Dear Readers, I apologize for the extended absence.  The blog has had to continue to take a back seat lately.  I have spent the last week and a half traveling, most of the time was spent down in Mexico at the Jay Butler shoe and leather goods factories.  Sadly, there was not much time for blogging.  Which brings me to...

olive green quilted shirt j crew

2 birds with 1 stone, or 2 trends in one garment.  Without intending to sound rhetorical; it's certainly not the first time it has happened, and will definitely not be the last.  Let me elaborate. A few weeks back I wrote on some of the men's style trends for this fall/winter season.  Although admittedly I generally dislike calling things trend...

knot standard fitting

Long time readers of this blog will know that tailored clothing, in particular made to measure suiting has been the most frequented topic discussed on The Fine Young Gentleman.  I would even go so far as to say that I have reviewed more brands than anyone else and that those reviews garner more traffic than other blogs reviews.  But...

Champion performax shirt

A while back I wrote of my affinity for wearing lax pennis to the gym.  However, I do realize that a pinnie is not always the ideal choice to gym wear; some have argued that it is never an appropriate choice.  Although dissent is appreciated, I disagree with the haters.  Lax Pinnies are still okay. But to appease them, somewhat,...
