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,...

jay butler leather wallets and keyfobs

Dear Readers, A few weeks ago I announced that I was starting a shoe and leather goods brand, Jay Butler.  Proudly, I can now say that 'starting' has changed to 'started.'  That said, late Monday night I launched the leather goods collection.  The collection consists of wallets, money clips and other small leather accessories.  Over time the collection will grow...

ravis custom tailor suit review 2

Like many of the reviews on this blog, the following review of Ravis Custom Tailors is a long time coming and also overdue.  For which I owe the brand an apology.  But more importantly, let's get on with the review. Ravis Custom Tailor is not a brand that I have seen talked about on other blog.  There are, of course,...

fall winter suits

Summer is over. Our delusions of a perpetual Indian Summer come to an end.  The reality that the chill of fall and winter is upon us sets in.  This brings joy, sadness and transformation. I personally favor warmer weather.  But not so warm that the wearing of a suit is nearly prohibited because of the discomfort of excessive sweating (I took...

Dear Readers, A little over a year and a half ago I announced that I had left my job as an accountant to start a shoe brand, thank you to those of you who have given me your support since then.  I hope that all of you will continue to support me by continuing to read the The Fine Young...

mens fur collared jacket

Whether you follow (or even care about) trends or not is up to you.  Perhaps you find them silly and useless or perhaps you follow them with the utmost allegiance.  If you are of the former camp then I suppose you should stop reading.  If you are anywhere but that then you may find it of interest to read...

how to pick up chicks in a tux

About a month ago I semi-jokingly said on Instagram that on the blog was a post on how to pick up chicks in a tux.  Upon thinking about it, it was actually the perfect subject for a post.   When it comes down to it, one of the reasons men who dress well choose to do so is to attract...
