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…

MTM Contrast Club Collar Shirt


[Photos by Sebastian P.] Part of my admiration for clothing is the nostalgia and functionality that comes with it.  Outside of craftsmanship and attention to detail, the purpose of dress has always been fascinating.  Before “trends” were the anchor of design, everything had a purpose.  Not to say that trends weren’t relevant decades ago, but in today’s world, functionality seems…

Last Look from NYFWM


A little (or a lot) late, but here is my final day look from NYFWM back in February.  With a slight chill in the air, this brown flannel suit was perfect for the temperature.  Stayed with slightly warmer tones, but overall, relatively simple. The suit is MTM from ModernTailor and is one of my favorites.  Wide peak lapel, 3 roll…

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. The rollneck has found its way into my rotation more-and-more after picking up…
