I’ve been experimenting with the polarizing denim-and-blazer look a bit lately, and while it may not ever become a central part of my style it’s worked out better than I initially thought. As with many menswear-y things, getting this look to work is more about finding the right pieces than anything else. […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
Well, they kept to their word.
After years of delays, the San Francisco Suitsupply store is up and running, and it feels great. Now that the hangover from the opening party has faded and we’re past the phase of speculation, I thought I’d provide an update on the store and what it offers. […]
Well, it’s finally happening. I think. Readers of this blog will know that I’m a big fan of Suitsupply, a company that I believe makes the best tailored clothing around the $500 price point. Those same readers (and other Bay Area fans of the brand) will also know that the company has been trying to open a store here and failing for the past 3 years or so. […]
This past weekend I was able to attend one of my favorite events of the year – an annual black tie celebration at San Francisco City Hall. My black tie kit has evolved and upgraded over the years, and now that all the pieces are more or less accounted for I’ve reached the somewhat confusing top of […]
I’ve always found that the colors navy and burgundy look great together, especially when they’re on the jerseys of my undergraduate alma mater as they annihilate the competition in the NCAA tournament. For that reason, I thought I would rep(p)* this new block stripe grenadine tie from the folks at Shibumi Berlin. […]
I’ve been interested in getting a brown herringbone sportcoat for a while. I’ve had a rather specific mental image of what I’ve wanted for this jacket – a classic brown/tan color with a wide herringbone pattern, three patch pockets, and wide lapels. This idea in my head was definitely influenced by Gus Walbolt’s amazing “truffle hunting” sportcoat, […]
