Day 1 Look from NYFWM


The first day of NYFWM was a gloomy one.  Mother nature couldn’t decide if it wanted to rain or shine, but nonetheless, a fun day.  My look, unintentionally, matched that of the weather.  Dark, gloomy, lugubrious (word of the day).  Also, heavily Japanese influenced from each piece.

Fall Patterns with Morgan Coda


Fall is here, and the weather that comes with it is beginning to creep through.  With the fall comes fall clothing – one of my favorite times of year.  Tweeds, flannels, heavy cottons, etc.  Gotta love it!  The fall tends to bring out some bold patterns in the process.  There doesn’t seem to be a better time to bring out…

Review: Oliveo Suit


Oliveo is probably unfamiliar to most, as it was to myself when I stumbled upon them. Oliveo is the label that Makeyourownjeans makes their suits under. Yes, very complex, but they make MTM suits so that was enough for me. They sent me out a suit to review since they definitely peaked my interest. Oliveo worked with me extensively throughout…

Review: iTailor Suit


iTailor is a familiar name on SbN. They have been featured on the blog a couple of times, and this time I bring a suit review. After speaking with iT about the possibility of reviewing a suit, they sent me a voucher to try out the process. iTailor does many things well when it comes to their service and products.…

Review: SuitSupply Boston Fit


“The plain blue cotton looks like it’s been kissed by the Italian sun for days.” I have been wanting to try out more of Suitsupply’s products for a while now after picking up some of their accessories in store in NY and Chi-town. I was presented with a no-brainer of an opportunity when they marked down some of their products…
