Over the past few weeks I have been receiving and increasing number of emails with questions on men's dress from some of you from as far away as India.  I would like to thank all of you for your interest in FYGblog.  I thought that perhaps it would be of interest to some of you if I were to...

I think that by now it's no secret that I love black tie and have rather strong opinions on it.  The Golden Globes, in all of its glory, puts the screens leading men (and women) in semi-formal attire, for better or worse.  So, let's just get to it, I have more than a few short words to say but...

Things I love include braces (suspenders), polka dot ties and butterfly loafers.  Now, when paired together I did like the result.  I decided to pair the navy braces with navy polka dot tie, some may say a little too coordinated but I don't mind in this case (and mind you, I love braces and whole heartedly endorse them).  I...

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...

A few nights back everyone's favorite royal couple attended the War Horse premiere in London.  Sadly, I was not invited...  Luckily, a few good pictures surfaced of the event.  It goes without saying, but Kate Middleton (Duchess of Cambridge) looked rather stunning, as per usual.  But this is not to slight the well dressed Prince William (Duke of Cambridge). ...

Back in the day it would take weeks and a series of physical visits to a tailor (and not to mention a sizeable sum) to get a bespoke suit, which is still the case.  But luckily modern technology and consumer demand have been what I believe to be the driving forces behind the burgeoning made to measure suit industry. ...

I am again down in Southwest Florida and this time the weather is perfect, 75 and nothing but sun.  Given that I won't be experiencing such weather for a few months I thought it wise to indulge in pastels, which are my favorite colors in the color spectrum.  I think it helped, I had one of my better rounds. ...

I love my Top-Siders, all four pairs of them.  These are my go-tos when for pretty much any time I leave my apartment in casual dress.  They have nearly seen their day, the soles are parting with the upper and some of the leather is wearing.  But they have been through a lot - the streets and bars of...
