    Schott Sample Sale (Elizabeth, NJ) Workwear Trad?

    Don't know how trad you guys consider workwear, but i think it plays an important part in our sartorial history as Americans, but this is some good stuff, and thought it may interest some of you. So I managed to beat some of the flippers to a few things and overall a cool experience. Got to...

    Need Help from a US Veteran

    I know there are quite a few veterans on this site so I was hoping someone may be able to help guide me, or even pull a string or two to help me find info on my grandfathers. I am researching into their histories and both served in the Second WW, my paternal grandfather in the Navy in the...

    bespoke What % Of Your Closet Is Bespoked?

    This area needs more traffic! Maybe a new thread... My first bespoke jacket was a blazer I bought a few years ago. Since, I have made some OTR purchases, some of which have been great, some not so great. Now, almost all of my shirts are bespoke, and I'm slowly changing over some of my...

    BB 346 President's Day "Sale"

    Was just at the 346 in Jersey Gardens. Picked out 3 ties (normally 3 for $99 at all outlets) that I loved. There was a sign that read President's Day Sale 25% off. I assumed they'd be 3 for $75...nope, they were 25% off the original price, so essentially the "sale price" was 30% more than the...

    Just Picked Up Two New Jackets

    One a grey hopsack, the other a brown/orange shepherd's check. Took the new jackets yesterday. I asked my tailor for a more conservative cut, but feel like I'm swimming in the jackets...now I know they're not broken in, and I'm used to stuff feeling more snug, but do you guys think they...

    Odd Double Breasted Jacket

    Thinking about having one made up this spring. I know that a real bold plaid, or pattern would be a bit too much, but how about a more subtle plaid for an odd DB Sport Coat? For detailing I'm leaning towards two patch and a chest welt pocket. For some reason to me, double breasted coats...

    Service With A Smile - And Then Some

    In this day in age, when the apex of customer service is a live voice from India reading from a script, and the norm is a computer responding to keyed telephone entries, real service has disappeared, or so I thought. Today I made my way to see my local tailor, Frank, at Ercoles in Brooklyn...

    It's The Most Wonderful Time, Of The Year!

    I just swapped all of my brightly colored trousers and jackets out for my fall/winter ones! I forgot how much I love this stuff, the earth tones, plaids, heavier weights...it really is my most favorite time of the year as the days get shorter, the air gets cooler, and wardrobes change. I...

    Esquires BDRM Awarded

    Dan from NYC won on the Today Show. I think his look is terrific, and he's a decent looking bloke on top of his wardrobe as well. The other contestants all looked good, MaFoo (Matthew Fan) (a part time forumite here but cult figure at SF) was in his usual Rubinacci and Ontario looked great...

    Funny Billboards - Sorry, Just Had To Share

    These two are BACK to BACK on the westbound BQE in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. I can't think of anything funnier...I know its toilet humor, but imagine these in other, more quaint, locales...like Holdfast's Oxford. "Enjoy life again!"...hilarious!

    Do Your Friends Give You Schtick Too?

    Being men, and being "into" clothes makes us very unique. Most "men" don't put 1/100th the thought that we do into their clothing. Since I've started my clothing and style blog, and posted my updates on my facebook page, some of my old friends are giving me schtick about my "new found" interest...

    Found this suit at Banana Republic for practically peanuts on sale. The only jacket and trouser they had were almost exactly my size, and when i saw the price, I had to bite. They are from the Monogram Collection which is supposed to be their "high end" brand, but still made in the People's...
