Last week in the first installment of 'Questions From The Readers' I responded to an inquiry from a gentleman asking about wearing a chestnut brown belt with oxblood (burgundy) loafers.  I advised that chestnut brown would be advisable to black, but really one should obtain a proper oxblood belt.  So, I thought it prudent to follow up with the...

Upon reflecting I find it weird to think that the first post was put up on April 4th, just over nine months ago.  Weirder it is to think that the 200th post was put up late Saturday night.  Back then much was as it is now, FYGblog has a purpose to try to help guys dress better, hopefully on...

In my previous post on My.Suit in which I discussed the process of getting measured, choosing the various details of the suit and the initial alterations needed on the suit it is now time to discuss the final fit of the suit.  In a third post I will have a discussion that focuses more on the construction of the...

Perhaps you are wondering why my shoes are on the floor of my cubicle stuffed with paper towels, perhaps you are not.  Either way, it may be in your best interest to pay attention because one day you may run into the same problem I did.  Anyway, the reason being is that I was stuck out in the rain...

Much of the upper echelon of the menswear blogging world has set up shop at Pitti Uomo, the largest menswear convention on the planet.  I, unfortunately, am not there.  But perhaps next time around.  For highlights, photos and news check some of the usual suspects Tommy Ton, GQ Eye, Justin Chung, Grungy Gentleman and Guerreisms.

Over the past few days Business Of Fashion has put out two great articles on Supreme, the legendary New York City skateboard shop.  The articles give a brief history of the store but more importantly talk about the store's legacy of both past and present.  And mind you, insights into Supreme don't often happen like this, the company is...
