mens style pro dragon inside

This whole menswear blogging this is having a good moment these days.  Obviously, within the category there are a number of different types of bloggers and styles.  For the purposes of this post, I am referring more to the guys who focus on helping guys dress better without breaking the bank; whether it be casual clothing or tailored clothing. ...

fine young gentleman czech forbes

Dear Readers, Over the past few weeks both content from The Fine Young Gentleman as well as an interview of myself has been posted on outlets aside from this here blog.  First, a few weeks ago an interview of myself by Eric Scriberras of MentorMe Podcast was posted.  The discussion focuses primarily on my journey to start Jay Butler and...

Ask and now you shall receive.  Apologies for missing the Golden Globes and Grammys this year, but fear not, I'm not going to skip out on all three shows.  Sadly for my judgemental side, things were looking pretty good this year.  But as always, there were a few guys who just couldn't pull it together.  Aside from some snarky...

knot standard mtm tweed jacket

It was nearly two years ago that I first reviewed Knot Standard. The review was pretty positive, however, there were a few marks against the brand.

cobbler union boot review

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;...
