Everyone knows that America won the war on the Pacific front in WWII because America was, and still is, a superior military power to Japan.  Obviously, there are many factors that contributed to this greatness throughout the war.  One of the lesser known factors is that the ratio of support staff to soldiers was much higher on the American...

Remember the days when cargo pants were all the rage?  I do, unfortunately.  I had a few pairs, regrettably.  Well, the jackasses in fashion have decided it is time to resurrect this once deceased article of clothing.  This is a testament to the fact that designers will sell anything to make a buck.  I was perusing through the May...

French cuffs (also referred to as double cuffs) are more formal than their alternative, the button cuff (also referred to as barrel cuffs).  Partially as a result of this they necessitate a jacket.  French cuffs were not created to be worn without a jacket, they were created out of functionality and aesthetics.  They accentuate the elegance of a man's...

One of my many issues with the way most men dress is the void of color dressing their breast pocket.  It seems that most men in their 20's are averse to sport a pocket square or handkerchief.  It is regarded as too pretentious, unneccessary or old man-esque.  This is saddening, as there are few things that can bring an...

Sometimes the same old same old gets boring.  The shoe on the right is your average lace up job done at a store, the shoe on the left is not.  Changing up the lacing of your shoes is an easy way to give your shoes a fresh look.

I was recently discussing how to dress well with one of my friends when he asked the question 'what do I do when it rains?' If you  favor leather soled shoes over rubber soled shoes this dilemma plagues you, especially in the winter and spring months when there seems to be more inclement weather.  As a side note, you...

Back in college spring was one of the best times of the year. Every girl had at least half a dozen new skirts and low cut tops to show off, each skirt shorter and each top cut lower than the last. Those were the days.  For my own sanity, I pray that New York will have comparable goods to...
