I have again struck at Business Insider.  This time I discuss "10 Things All Men Should Add To Their Wardrobes After College."  I think it is a relevant topic for this time of the year.  But the list is equally applicable to men of any age at any time of the year. -JLJ

vehicle rescue

Life is not always about men's style for me although much of my time is spent dealing with the subject.  One of my other meaningful and exciting activities is volunteering as an EMT.  I have spoken briefly on the subject before but it was not in a necessarily relevant line of discussion to the blog.  But now since I...

In the past the topic of wearing a button down collar with a suit has come up multiple times in conversations with friends.  Most recently last week while out and about in Philadelphia.  My friend, a third year law student, is looking to bolster his wardrobe for the career he is about to begin.  So understandably, this is a...

blue suede tassel loafers

I have had this pair of navy suede tassel loafers from Suitsupply for over a year and I love them dearly.  However, I have not worn them in almost half a year because the sole was way too light of a brown and created too much contrast with the upper (see to the left).  This made the shoes often...

guy fieri style

It should come as zero surprise that I have not a single positive thing to say about Guy Fieri's style.  In fact, I can't really say much about it at all because it is so terrible.  In fact, he is the antithesis of discerning taste.  I won't speak on his food (as we have NYT for that) or his...

tweed in the summer

Tweed in the summer?  I know what your thinking... That jackass who writes The Fine Young Gentleman has lost it.  Perhaps. But, I am one of those people who believe that tweed can be worn year round.  The weather and tweed itself have to be just right for it to work in summer and spring, however.  I think the light...

If not for trying new combinations of suit, shirt, tie, shoes and the like how would we know what works; how would we really be able to push our personal style forward.  Yes, we can lay out all of the items neatly together and say to ourselves 'ah, yes, this works quite well' and then put everything on and...

rotenier cufflinks lone ranger

I have previously relished in my love of Robin Rotenier's cufflinks.  So I am not exactly presenting a new brand this time.  However, Robin has been nice enough to put out some new designs in the past few months, as were showcased at his booth at MRket in January and pictured below.  The highlights are the Lone Ranger collection,...

Nantucket Reds

I can't tell you how many arguments I've gotten in over the years over the color of my beloved Nantucket Reds.  The booboisie (my new favorite word thanks for Richard Press) seem to think they are some shade of pink or salmon.  But they are wrong.  Nantucket Red is its own color, a color that fades and changes over...

knot standard review

Note: A more recent review of Knot Standard has been conducted, please refer here for the updated review. I was approached last summer by the good people at Knot Standard, until then an unknown name by me in the ever growing made to measure/custom marketplace.  A few things immediately caught my attention.  First, they claimed to be a bespoke operation...
