dont wear sunglasses in conversation

It has been while since I have made any additions to the 'Rules of Men's Dress' list, although truth be told, there are many to add.  But this summer and all of the sun and sunglasses that come with it has had me thinking a lot about a few things.  Namely, sunglasses etiquette.  And thus, we have two new...

how to wear a man cape

Man capes?  Yeah, so maybe I'm off the deep end on this one.  I'm okay with that. Before I attempt to wax poetic let's first cover a bit of backstory.  I was on Nantucket a few weeks ago and amongst other activities decided to do some photo shoots for the upcoming Jay Butler launch with the good people (or at...

Some of my friends are all about the music fest stuff.  It's not totally my scene, as you can imagine.  You know, that whole dirty tie dye hippie smoking pot and blowing lines in public scene isn't really for me.  But a friends band was playing Peach Fest last Friday so I wanted to go support them, I am...

mohans nyc custom tuxedo

I have long been curious about some of the NYC based custom suit shops. The ones that have been around for years; before this whole online made to measure revolution. Stores like LS, Mr. Neds (that review will be finished eventually…), Bhambi's and Mohan’s. I had the good fortunate of receiving an email from some of Mohan's Custom Tailors...

zero to one book

A few days ago a rather interesting article regarding men's dress was published on the Economist titled Suitable Disruption.  The article discusses a policy that early Facebook and Napster investor Peter Thiel has which is to not invest in anyone who wear a suit to a pitch meeting.  The theory is discussed in more detail in his forthcoming book...

A few months back (one of those times I didn't post for a while) I moved from the suburbs to city.  Partially as a result my clothing storage space became less than what it had previously been.  Which for someone who is as clothing obsessed as me this posed a significant problem.  I wrestled with the problem for a...

Weird Al Yankovic has yet again returned with his unrivaled blend of musical parody and satire.  Much to the delight of this blog he decides to take on a few fashion trends and men's style issues head on.  Which is rather interesting considering historically speaking his personal style has gravitated towards the more horrifying side of things.  But anyway,...

"I have a great friend to set you up with.  I went to college with her and she has a great job at Bloomingdale's as a buyer.  Shes from the Main Line and is really pretty, at least an 8."  One of your girlfriends tells you.  So you scope her out on Facebook, she's at least an 8.  In...

awl and sundry shoes

It was only a matter of time until someone did the whole online made to order shoe thing right.  So, after a few years of waiting it has happened.  Or at least, it is as good as it gets for now, and I mean that as a compliment.  The 'it' I refer to is Awl & Sundry.  Although admittedly,...

lax pennie friday

My life is riddled with guilty pleasures.  I have found that my life functions a bit more smoothly with them, rather than without them.  A while back I shared about my secret love for the Supreme 5 panel hat.  Today I would like to opine on the supremacy of the lax pinnie.  Of course, there are numerous other guilty...
