Featuring R. Culturi


I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: dressing is a form of art.  Art and menswear go hand-in-hand.  Craftsmanship, detail, purpose, feeling, etc., are all relevant characteristics for both worlds – worlds that tend to intertwine together almost organically.  Few brands in today’s commercial market are able to capture such a sequence, but many on the up-and-up have…

Round II with Rampley & Co


Dressing can very much be described as a form of art.  The world of menswear (fashion in general) expends quite a bit of praise to the world around us when it comes to inspiration.  Whether it comes from an individual, a city, or a painting, all these factors can be summed up in one word….art.

The Online Shopping Gamble


Many of you know the Italian outlet, now ran by Net-a-Porter, Yoox.com.  Yoox is a very interesting, awesome, confusing, and sometimes overstimulating website that offers some of the most sought after brands for a steal of a price.

Review | David Fin Ties: A Tie with a Cause


Look Good. Feel Good. Do Good. This is the model that tie-maker David Fin is building their brand on. Each tie comes with a greeting card that reads “Our brand is founded on the belief that every veteran deserves to have a job and reason to put on a tie each day.” David Fin is helping veterans gain employment through…

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…
