Because it's Friday I am breaking my own rule, rule 4, and wearing navy blue suede tassel loafers. Because it's Friday I need that little something extra that are pink socks to get me to the weekend. Because it's Friday I am ever so grateful it is not Monday.

As of late I have been in some sort of tie phase.  I think it was started off by my obsession with silk knit ties and from there it has been all downhill...  Or maybe up hill...  Anyway, along my usual travels through the internet I cam across a very small brand called The Knottery.  I was intrigued by...

A few weeks back I watched Office Space.  I have seen the movie many times before, however, I have purposefully held off watching it since I started 'working for the man.'  As I thought it would likely create some form of apathy toward my job whether temporary or permanent, but that is a discussion for another time.  The movie...

I can't tell you how many times I've read about the benefits of a split yoke on a shirt.  And by benefits I really mean two things.  The first was that a split yoke was the only way to properly match the pattern of a shirt between the sleeves and rear part of the shoulders/upper back, creating a much...

A few of my favorite things here...  A pocket Square, a silk knit tie, braces and the colors of orange and purple.  The combination is perhaps a little too matching, however.  As ideally one wants to have their pocket square complement their tie and braces as opposed to completely match them, especially in their dominant colors.  So I am...

It took only a few short weeks to get my suit from Indochino once I ordered it.  If you don't remember the first post in this series catch up on things here.  In sum, the ordering process went smoothly and I was impressed by the simplicity ease of use of the interface.  With Indochino one provides their measurements via...

As was to be expected Hollywood's ruling class came out in full on sartorial dysfunction for the Oscars on Sunday night.  Well, I should amend that, there were a few guiding lights.  But compared to the Golden Globes the average comprehension of the sartorial arts was roughly the same.  Unfortunately, I was unable to watch any of the show,...

You may be wondering why it has been so long since I last discussed Alton Lane.  Truth be told the jacket had to be remade (and may have to be remade a second time) which delayed things a few weeks.  Before we proceed may I recommend you get caught up on things by reading the first post in this...

As I came striding out of work circa 11pm Thursday night I spotted this gent.  Typically when I exit my building in the southern part of FiDi at that time of night the streets are deserted.  But he stuck out like a sore thumb, in a good way. Although I can't say I would wear anything that he is wearing...

Business casual, simple enough, right?  Well, sometimes.  Anyway, it was nearly 60 degrees in NYC yesterday so I decided a bit of spring flare was vital to my day's success.  Which led way to light brown wingtips and a strong pink striped dress shirt.  And I know what your thinking, Kirkland Signature?  It's the Costco house brand.  Well, they...
