Editors Note:  I am quite excited to publish this post.  The post has been a long time coming, and there is a bit of a story to it.  It serves as a follow up post to one I published a few months back which discussed a man matching his turban with his tie.  Soon after it was published a...

Being the accountant that I am (by day I am an auditor) I often think of the cost of an item of clothing being depreciated over a span of time.  And everything I buy I buy with the intention to use it for years, not months.  The longevity of a garment is one of the strongest arguments for buying...

lilly pulitzer suspenders

NOTE: These suspenders are no longer available, for current suspender inventory please check this post.I decided to have another go at designing suspenders.  This time I opted for Lilly Pulitzer fabric, instead of silk grenadine.  There are two varieties.  A pink corduroy with green embroidered bees and a pink, green, white and blue patchwork.  Both come with white leather...

Please, you knew this was coming.  And yeah, I'm going to be critical about it (skip to the last 3 paragraphs if you just want to hear me rant). In a sartorial catastrophe that seems to have hit nearly ever major and minor publication Justin Bieber has concocted one of the most successful PR stunts of all time.  Now, whether...

Cashmere is one of God's gifts to mankind.  This is scientific fact.  On this day I chose to incorporate cashmere via a necktie from Altea.  In fact, I built the entire outfit to work around the tie.  As we know, cashmere is more of a fall and winter textile.  This holds true especially for neckwear.  That said, I thought...

Alas, Fine And Dandy Shop opens its brick and mortar version in NYC.  The shop is tucked away on a quiet block of w 49th st, 445 w 49th st to be exact.  The shop is decorated with a combination of product and vintage paraphenalia, like the 'Dress well and succeed' poster (photo below).  Much of the merchandise is...

So, it has set in.  Our food comas, that is... And that was as far as I got last night when trying to write this post before I passed out.  Anyway.  The amount of money and/or discount that would be needed for me to step foot in a mall or shopping center today is rather exorbitant so any purchasing I...

Every brand and store in America is having a sale for Black Friday, at least as far as I know.  I bet even the fruit stands on the corners will offer discounts, maybe even firesale prices...  Anyway, our friends at Indochino are throwing their hat in the ring and are offering 30% off orders over $700.  Recently, Indochino was...

I remember running the last few hundred yards of the Philadelphia Marathon when I was a kid.  My uncle was running it so my cousin and I thought it fitting to join him on his triumphant finish.  I suppose it has been since then that I have always wanted to run a marathon myself.  I ran a couple half...

men of the cloth kickstarter

The interaction between supply and demand is the bedrock of economics.  Or at least that's how it was taught to me in school.  And it seems that as interest (and likely demand) in fine tailoring has increased over the past few years, the supply will only, over time, inevitably decrease.  Or so it seems that is to be the...
