Best Dressed Man In London

First note: I am not a professional photographer, hence the angle of this picture making his jacket look way too long and his torso very disproportionate. But this is not in fact the way that it really is, it is the picture and the angle of it that makes it look like this. So….sorry for that. This gentleman is a regular customer of ours, as I am sure many other places around London and I […]

It’s Just Me And My Pink Laces!

Some might call this overkill, others might call it brilliant, I just call it being bored from conservatism and wanting to do something about it! Because every now and then, an outfit needs a injection of fun color to liven it up a bit….and as I have said before, a touch of extravagant lacing helps to meet that need. Most people go for the classic red laces but as I had a tie that matched […]

What I Am Wearing

Before coming to England, I can wholeheartedly admit that I did not have a clue about suits and good tailoring. I used to even work in a place that sold (what I believed to be) nice suits but after seeing the quality of the cuts and tailors here on the Row (as we snobs like to call it), I now realize that what I used to see in the States was like a top sirloin […]

What I Am Wearing

It’s been quite a lovely Fall/Winter season here in London, weather-wise, which has allowed me to wear things that would be otherwise saved for the Spring/Summer, such as this light gray Prince of Wales (POW) suit. While I think that I have only been able to wear it once (as it was just recently completed), I am eagerly awaiting the warmer weather to be able to flaunt it’s beauty. I had always wanted a POW […]

What I Am Wearing

The more and more that you see my personal collection, the more that you will realize that I love to gravitate towards two-toned shoes. This is actually a pair, despite being colors that I don’t particularly think go that well together, is one of my favorite models. The only shame is, the more that I spend wearing bespoke shoes and shoes that come in narrow width, the more that I feel that many of the […]

What I Am Wearing

I don’t get to wear suits as much as I would like to, but when I do, I try and make sure that I stand out. Not in an egotistical or ‘look at me’ way, but in the sense that I throw in some color so I don’t feel like I belong in the sea of dark suits/white shirts/dark ties. Not that I don’t think that this standard look has it’s time and place, and […]

Loafers With Suits

A topic that is always good for discussion, which usually ends up in subjective opposing views, is more likely than not, a topic that is worth revisiting. And while I am pretty sure that I have never brought up this topic before, I believe that there are many opinions about the subject at hand. Since I am currently dressed in the fashion that I am presenting, please allow me to share with all of you, […]

What I Am Wearing

I am really beginning to feel that when they advertise how many mega pixels are on a camera (when you buy it), I don’t think that the number is accurate. These pictures (obviously taken through a mirror) seem to come out so bad, yet I have seen other bloggers do the same thing, with their iphone and the pictures come out tremendously better. Maybe I am the culprit, dysfunctional when it comes to taking photographs. […]
