Did The Workplace Kill Men’s Shoes Too?

Men's Shoes

Recently we touched upon Guy Ritchie’s suit theory. Now that we’re in this thought space, can we discuss men’s shoes too? There are may men out there that rarely wear shoes socially. They predominantly wear them when at work. In most cities around the world, work is not thought of as the most favourite place […]

Men’s Footwear | How Much Should A Man Spend On Shoes?

Men's footwear

However much he can afford…Men’s footwear really should not be that difficult. It’s really that simple. Never let anyone tell you how much you should be spending (yes I know what the title of this post says). But rather cut your cloth (or leather) to your size and never act too big for your boots. […]

Did the workplace kill the suit?

For as long as I can remember, men have always worn suits. Ok let me not be blasé with my opening line. Since the 17th century the suit has been a staple of the male wardrobe. However it may not have been in the form that we wear now (picture long coats and cravats). The […]

One Button Suit Jacket At Work | What To Wear To Work

Should You Remove The Tack Stitching?

Tack Stitching

Tack stitching, it keeps it all together. These are the stitches that are put into your suit jacket temporarily whilst it is being made. As a consumer, you’ll most likely see tack stitching holding the vents of your jacket together or keeping the pockets shut. These are usually left in place after a suit has […]

Power – The Style Salute

I’ve made no secret about the show ‘Suits’ being one of my favourites. Now it’s time to let you in on another favourite; Power. If you haven’t seen […]

Men’s Suspenders & Braces

In our last post we touched on Collar Pins (Collar Bars), so in sticking with the old school vibe, we touch on mens suspenders (braces).
