contrasting buttonhole

With the advent of the online made to measure era there are few customization options that I feel have received more support and and attention than contrasting buttonholes (functioning buttonholes are another but I'll save that for later).  And I will come right out and say it; I do not like them and I do not and will not...

what to wear to the orchestra

Last Friday I attended the Philly Pops Bond And Beyond performance.  The musicianship was excellent and I highly recommend going to a Philly Pops show if you have the opportunity.  It should come as no surprise, but I am a big fan of dressing up for the arts (orchestra, ballet, musicals etc).  Yes, that means at least a jacket,...

suitsupply philadelphia

Suitsupply continued its invasion of the States this week with the opening of its outpost in Philadelphia at 1601 Locust st on Thursday.  As a Philadelphia area native who has moved back to the area I see what the mean of my beloved city wear and lord knows the men need some help.  So the arrival of Suitsupply in...

Indochino Summer Collection

Indochino is yet again making moves.  In the past two days they have announced both a traveling tailor event in Philadelphia (May 10-27) as well as revealed their summer fabric collection.  I am quite excited for Indochino to come to Philadelphia (Suitsupply opened their PHL outpost at 1601 Locust yesterday so it is a good spring for men's style...

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...
