Summer Wool


I read, more than once this summer, a number of editorials stating that the beginning of summer was “time to put away your wools” and bring out the “summer” fabrics.  When thinking of warm-weather-appropriate fabrics, there are the usual culprits: linen, cotton, seersucker, etc. However, it is often overlooked how well a lightweight wool stands up to the summer heat. …

Part I | Thriving in the Shadows: New York’s Favorite Tailor


Tailors in New York City seem to be a dime a dozen.  Any reputable (or non-reputable) dry cleaner offers an ‘expert tailoring’ service from a ‘skilled’ tailor.  It’s hard to trust the Yelp reviews of how XYZ Cleaners managed to complete the “perfect hem”, but it’s just as easy to trust the horror stories on how that same ‘tailor’ ruined…

A Nod to the Local Tailor’s MTM


I have been a frequent supporter, as well as explorer, of the online MTM process. It can be convenient and reliable, if you know what you’re doing.

Review: PointClickTailors


PointClickTailors is a relatively new company offering online MTM services. They offer MTM suits, blazers, shirts, and pants. The company is based out of New Jersey, which was a huge plus being able to communicate with them in my own time zone – it tends to be difficult dealing with overseas companies at times. Frank runs the company, and is…

Review: Suitopia


Next on the list for online MTM suiting is Suitopia. Suitopia differs from many of the online suiting brands because they have a brick-and-mortar in Stockholm. Suitopia offers a variety products through their webshop, including womenswear. Ever since online MTM suiting has peaked my interests, I have always come across Suitopia and have always been interested in the brand. So…
