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. […]
I’m not much of a sneaker guy, but my current lifestyle (which could generously be called “work from home,” at best) has made them an easy choice for everyday footwear. In doing some research on which pair to scoop up for the summer, I stumbled upon a pretty solid deal. […]
Over the past year the rate at which I purchase new menswear has slowed significantly – in part because I’m trying to save money, but also because I have most of what I need. Because of this, I find myself getting lots of wear out of my favorite pieces. For that reason, I figured it would be a good time to resurrect my “One Year Later” series and highlight some of my favorite items that have aged well and are still available for others to purchase. […]
After my recent post on my two-season wardrobe essentials, I thought I would write a follow-up with how I typically wear these pieces. None of this is particularly groundbreaking as all of these items are very common and versatile, but I suppose that’s why I consider them my essentials. Like I mentioned then, the idea here is that I have a warm- and cool-weather version of each piece, which gives me enough versatility to wear this “uniform” throughout the year. […]
It’s no secret that I hate Las Vegas – anyone that spends time with me or reads this blog often enough has surely heard me complain about that. For as strongly as I feel about it, though, I sure do end up there a lot. I used to go there for work as an engineer, and […]
When I was working with Allen Edmonds to develop the ideal chukka boot last year, I was feeling a bit nervous. There was a lot riding on the project’s success and it felt like a pretty big gamble at the time. I hadn’t done any projects of that scale and I wasn’t sure how the product would be received, […]
