Look at you, headed to a serious networking event. Or prepping your outfit for your first day of work at a company that allows for “business casual attire.” Kudos to you, my man! So… Do you know what constitutes business casual attire?

Buying suits online can be tricky. The very real possibility of ordering a suit from a website only to discover upon receipt that it is not the quality, style or fit you expected is an understandable concern. It is also easier than you think to get exactly what you want.

Guys, it’s finally time to gear up for Spring! One of the hallmarks of the season is its fluctuating temperatures, not to mention its characteristically volatile weather patterns – “April showers,” and all that. In the morning, it may be one temperature, in the afternoon another, and in the evening a totally different one. We’ve done our part to prepare you for warm weather by offering lighter fabrications and seasonal textiles such as wool, silk, and linen blends.
