There’s more than one way to be stylish. And given that we encourage all of you to develop your own taste and let your individuality come out in your clothing, this fall we’ve got more variety on show than ever before. Practically every classic menswear item (save for top hats and spats) has been updated for 2012 and ready for you to wear your own way.
Take dress shirts, for example. Spread collars are extra big for us this season, perfect for the guy who appreciates their authority, which is amped up even more on our contrast-collar shirt options. For something a bit more modern and Continental, we’ve… Continue>>
Yes, we know the dilemma: How do you keep your dapper distinction when it’s blazing hot? After all, style and elegance come from layers and accessories, right? Three-piece suits, Chesterfield overcoats, cashmere scarves — stuff like that.
When it’s too balmy for even your favorite lightweight sportcoat, take a cue from the 1930s, the Golden Age of Menswear. The resort look popular at that time is a great blueprint for being cool and casual but still showing that you’re a guy with some serious style (for a cinematic example, check out “Evil Under The Sun,” an Agatha Christie adaptation with Peter Ustinov as detective Poirot).
1) Spectator Shoes. Sure, nothing beats the… Continue>>
We don’t want to brag, but there’s a lot of high-fiving going on around the office. That’s because everyone unanimously agrees that this is the best summer collection we’ve ever done. There’s a tremendous array of really distinctive stuff across all product categories. We know that’s what you’ve come to expect from us, and we really relish the challenge of raising the bar each season.
From formal suitings to the most relaxed casual wear for your summer vacation, here’s a taste of what you’ll find in our assortment.
Linen is bigger than ever for us this season, and spans the range from warm weather staples such as the solid Linen Sport Shirt (and if… Continue>>
In our technology accelerated age, bombarded with endless emails and text messages that seem to demand instant response, it’s nice that technology has also saved us precious minutes through the invention of non-iron shirts. Mornings are rushed enough without having to open an ironing board. And, sending shirts to the cleaners costs money, in addition to yet one more errand to run.
Non-iron dress shirts have become our biggest dress shirt category, so we thought we’d tell you a bit more about what makes them special (not to mention wildly popular). Great prices and a fit guarantee you likely already know, but what you don’t see is that our shirts are post-cured… Continue>>
Think of linen as the rebel of the fabric family. In an age when men have wholeheartedly embraced the convenience of non-iron shirts and trousers, linen stubbornly remains its crinkly, wrinkly self. Of course, that’s part of its charm.
Made from fibers of the flax plant, linen has been a part of civilization for ages, and civilized is a great way to think of it. Stylish men embrace, rather than evade, the character of its crinkly surface combined with a drape that’s more structured than silk but more flowing than cotton.
There are many ways to embrace this warm-weather fabric staple. This season we’ve got it in virtually every color you could want… Continue>>
Red, white and blue might sound like a comical combination when it comes to menswear. The colors of our nation’s flag are most associated with Uncle Sam, the Fourth of July and the patriotic but hardly stylish costumes that come with public celebrations.
But there’s a reason these three colors were chosen for our flag (not to mention a lot of other nation’s flags), and that’s because they look great together.
And men wear the colors together a lot more often than you’d think. For starters, a navy blazer or suit, white shirt and red tie is a favorite combination… Continue>>
