what tie to wear with a tuxedo

In on ongoing series I address questions I receive from readers, friends and fans.  This installment focuses on what type of tie to wear with a tuxedo.  That said, if there are any unanswered questions or if you would like to ask a totally unrelated question feel free to leave a comment of email at Justin@TheFineYoungGentleman.com.  For further discussion...

The idea of spending $26 for a single suit hanger is absurd to some men.  Understandably so.  But Butler Luxury hangers provide a product nice enough to justify the absurdity of it all.  Previously, I have discussed the hangers from The Hanger Project; which are also exceedingly nice hangers.  When things get to a certain level in quality, price...

Last night I was fortunate enough to attend an event at Paul Stuart that commended the unveiling of the newest set of window displays, which were done in collaboration with Town & Country (images can be seen below).  But my visit got me thinking of my previously released Christmas list.  Namely, the last item which was 'anything from Paul...

Few ready to wear shoe companies are as revered as Edward Green.  And for good reason, for both the style and quality of the shoes are excellent.  Anyway, the good people at Edward Green had a trunk show at Leffot last Friday (nov 30) where they had many of their models on display.  They were also taking orders for...

Christmas is upon us (or Haunnukah if that's your jam).  Cookies, ugly sweater parties and gifts proliferate almost all aspects of life.  You're on your own for ugly sweaters.  But I do recommend you get cookies from Hope's Cookies of Bryn Mawr.  And I obviously have suggestions on the gifts; both to give and receive.  Many of the things...

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...
