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…

ShortsByNature: The Salesman


ShortsByNature is a new project I have embarked on authoring a series of short stories.  The stories will have no direct relation to what goes on here at SuaveByNature, but will take inspiration from my own style, lifestyle, and other random anecdotes of fiction.  While it unravels, I hope to share these stories with you here and via its own…

Quick Trip to NYFWM SS17

Eidos AW ’16


Walking through the doors at 80 Wooster St., the mood was set with a dark ruggedness that was synonymous with the Eidos collection.  Full of dark neutral shades of blue, brown, black, and gray with a few touches of earthiness, the collection was just different enough from the previous while keeping that Eidos charm.

NYFWM Recap I


The second season of New York Fashion Week: Men has come out swinging.  With my schedule not as open as I’d like it to be, I have been able to chisel out some time for the shows.  Day 1 I was able to do some running around hitting a few events, but mostly catching up with some solid people, as…

This time of year involves a lot of travelling for many.  Whether it’s flying, taking the train, or driving, it’s important to stay comfortable in the process.  I usually like to keep things tailored when I travel, and there is a way to keep it extra comfy. I prefer a sport coat when travelling just because of the convenience.  The…
