But coming up with a creative and recognizable costume doesn’t necessarily mean you need to plan weeks in advance. Here are some quick and iconic costume ideas that can easily be put together using dress shirts and a few other pieces that are probably already hidden in your closet.

What’s New In Men’s Suits & Sport Coats – Fall 2013

Read full article  |  6 Comments

Somewhere along the sartorial timeline, hordes of men became convinced that blue and grey were the only acceptable colors for suits.   If you’re reading this, odds are you’re not stuck in that narrow mindset.  Still, we’d like to encourage those whose suit wardrobes are a bit basic to consider broadening their horizons, as well as assuage those who embrace color and pattern that we’ve got you covered.  This fall our campaign against the ordinary includes earth tones such as chocolate brown and olive. We’ve given brown a shot of elegance and formality by rendering it in a double-breasted pinstripe model, as well as a single-breasted version with subtle lavender stripes.

Brown also shows up in our country-gent inspired sport… Continue>>

That exchange, direct from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, is drawn out for even more dramatic effect in Baz Luhrmann’s new glitz-loaded adaptation, which opened May 10. And how appropriate, as we’re in total agreement withMen's White Two-Button Suit the Gatz: When you see the sartorial splendor of the film, which is set in 1922 New York, you too will want to repeat the past.

“The Great Gatsby” is loaded with the kind of style we love: Double-breasted and three-piece suits, two-tone shoes, all kinds of… Continue>>

Blended for Comfort

Men's Linen & Wool Two-Button SuitWhen it comes to natural fibers, there are really only a handful of options.  But when you blend them together, you create entirely new hybrids that combine the best of both worlds, and the result is often more distinctive—or even more practical—than the more typical purebred varieties.

Take wool, now and forever the king of suit fabrics.  But there’s a flipside to wool: Its ubiquity can also make it the anonymous pawn of suit fabrics, making you just another working-stiff in his worsted uniform.  But blend wool with silk and suddenly you’ve got a fabric that’s anything but ordinary, wonderfully textured and with lightness and visual interest that are perfect for summer… Continue>>

Men's Cotton & Linen Sport ShirtWith today’s high-tech lightweight wools, you can wear the same suit for most of the year and still be comfortable. But that doesn’t mean you have to look the same, as your shirts, ties and other accessories can express the changing seasons through the use of color.

And at no other time is that more fun than in summer, when all the bright shades that first dawned in spring get amped up even more, and fun fabrics like madras and seersucker take their place in the sun.

Not only does season-specific color sharpen your look, it’s also a budget-conscious… Continue>>
