Black Chelsea Boots

Introducing: Tangier Shoes

I have always had a love for shoes. Perhaps my parents are to blame for dressing me in loafers and boat shoes when I should have been wearing Velcro. But, in high school, I lived in Wallabees while most of my friends were in Jordan’s, and then in my 20s, I rarely took off a...

Summer Neutrals

Summer Neutrals

Our capsule collection of garment-dyed, washed cotton-linen shirts was created with summer in mind. With hand-selected colors reminiscent of the seaside the Washed Nowlens will put you in a warm-weather mindset in no time.   The Washed Nowlens are constructed of an Italian-woven cotton-linen blend from Albini that’s 66% linen and 34% cotton. They have a little bit...

Pitti, A Return to Focus

Pitti, A Return to Focus

At the beginning of last week, I noticed a few photographs from Pitti Uomo 87 trickle through on Instagram. Despite a few rumblings here and there, this season’s trade show felt much quieter when compared to the coverage from past years. Perhaps a return to form and a re-shift in focus is taking place. Let’s...

Trend Report / Turtlenecks

Trend Report / Turtlenecks

Although some of you out there may remain skeptical – yes, we’re looking at you – we’re celebrating the return of the turtleneck. No seriously, they’re back. But these turtlenecks aren't the same that your mom would make you wear to school on picture day. These turtlenecks have a modern edge and go beyond contemporary...

Trend // Latin-American Influence

Trend // Latin-American Influence

It’s news to no one the fashion industry can be a bit tiresome. Aside from the barrage of borderline-ridiculous stylings, recently I’ve gotten the feeling that somewhere, someplace, the fashion gods cackle at the cognitive dissonance I’m experiencing as stores begin to advertise for sweaters during swim season. Fortunately, I’m presently tasked with forecasting trends...

Adding Up the Numbers

Adding Up the Numbers

You may not be a numbers person. In menswear, as in life, the numbers can add up quickly. So when it comes to dress shirt, there is only one number that you really need to know -- 120. You should probably know your neck size as well. For the sake of simplicity, let’s just say...

How To Find Your Size

How To Find Your Size

The pace of life is demanding. We know. It’s easy to try to save some time with the old “grab and go” technique when shopping for shirts. Unfortunately the final result often looks a little rushed as well. Making the most out of your time is important, but so is presentation. It’s good to be...

The New Power Suit

The New Power Suit

Seeing The Wolf Of Wall Street late last week reminded me of one of the worst moments in menswear history – the power suit. The Wolf Of Wall Street chronicles Jordan Belfort’s (DiCaprio) ascent to the top of Wall Street and living the life of luxury though greed and blatant fraud. The movie is a...

Shirting 101: Oxford Cloth

Shirting 101: Oxford Cloth

The Oxford cloth button-down is my all-time favorite shirt. The look is classic, the texture is distinct -- it’s arguably the most versatile shirt in any man’s closet. The shirt’s origin dates back to 19th-century Scotland at one of the country’s oldest fabric mills. The mill produced a series of four distinct fabrics, each named...
