Last week I left San Francisco and embarked on a bit of an adventure. Due to a flexible work arrangement and a general fatigue of SF, I decided to head out of town for a while to give myself a change of scenery. […]
Update: prices have been dropped. I’m doing a bit of closet cleaning, so if you’re a similar size to me you may be in luck! Current shop items include two awesome Suitsupply sportcoats, as well as shoes from Alden and Epaulet. There may be more to come, so if you know we’re similar sizes and […]
If you ask any menswear-inclined community what a man should wear to a job interview, you’ll get the same answer – CBD. “Conservative Business Dress,” if you’re not familiar, is probably what you think it is: navy or charcoal single-breasted suit, white shirt, tasteful tie, dark oxford shoes. Traditional “I mean business” attire, in other words. Although this advice may have been astute back when one worked at the same job for 40 years and then retired, times have changed (and so have the rules). […]
One of the great things about current state of the internet is that just about anybody can sell things online. The catch is that with all these new makers out there, it can sometimes be hard to find the true craftsmen, the people that have serious skill beyond just the average crafty person. When you do find one of those people, though, it’s that much more exciting. And one of those people is Parker Pierpont. […]
Kinda feels like this is a blog about shoes lately, hasn’t it? It’s juste a coincidence, I promise. Anyway, here’s a noteworthy sale for those that don’t like spending $500+ on footwear but still like nice things (a group that includes myself). […]
Mehra, a young footwear retailer based in Vancouver, is having a sale that includes many brands that aren’t often discounted. Mehra’s prices seem pretty competitive at full MSRP, so the discounted prices are quite good if you’re in the market for top-tier footwear. […]
A few months ago I was contacted by the folks at Beckett Simonon about putting together a review. I don’t take review requests very often these days, but the company had been on my radar for a while as a young brand putting out aggressively-priced menswear, so I decided to take a closer look. […]
Perhaps it’s because I just got back from a week in Montana, or possibly because I haven’t been getting dressed up much lately, but I’ve developed a hankering for denim and chambray shirts. Not the kind that you wear under a blazer – I’ve got those – but something deeply casual, well-worn, and with a bit of an “Old West” vibe.
Suitsupply – the tailored clothing brand that I’ve talked about at length before – isn’t known for having sale prices on their site, but they do run online outlet sales from time to time. They often show up somewhat unpredictably and stock moves fast, but for those that are ready there are many good deals to be had.
South Korea wasn’t a place I associated with tailored clothing until a couple of years ago, and my curiosity has only increased in the time since then. Bespoke tailoring houses like B&Tailor and Vanni have been tempting me with beautiful pictures of their garments – very Italian-inspired pieces, always in tasteful fabrics with truly impeccable fits.
