Men’s Accessories Fall Winter 2013-14: Barrett Alley & Persol

August 14, 2013

Keep Pockets slim with the Disciple Wallet The Disciple Wallet from Barrett Alley is the latest card holder on the war front against fat wallets. While mass produced slim wallets from Bellroy are quite laudable (do check them out), nothing beats the time-tested traditions (and luxuriousness) of handcrafted leather. Shipping with a lifetime guarantee, the Disciple Wallet […]

Grenson Shoes x Foot the Coacher for Mr. Porter

August 10, 2013

1

Grenson Shoes was one of those brands born from absolute necessity. Literally home grown (when William Green’s father passed on and he had to help his mother produce mens’ boots at home), this English heritage brand continued as a cottage industry until Green established his own craft in 1866 as William Green & Son. Not before […]

Sartorially Italian: Gucci x Lapo Elkann Style Collaboration

August 9, 2013

Apologies, I’ve been busy with yet another stylish magazine; This print + web publication called The Millenary aims to put the world of haute horlogerie in context, that is- luxury watch collecting with all the other sartorial accessories that go with it.

Bucks and Co epitomises the Alpha Male and with their 2013 spring summer menswear collection has managed to achieve just that with their haberdashery of selvedge denim suits. That said, we can’t be nostalgic for the age of cowboys and horseback riding because ‘nostalgia’ is a state of yearning for an era we have lived in […]

April 24, 2013

I recently caught the Pierce Brosnan remake of the 1968 original Thomas Crown Affair and I’ve found it wanting. While the 1999 incarnation has gratuitous sex (probably more a statement of a decade of Basic Instinct led cinematic titillation), I felt dirtied rather than stimulated by its tawdry. Inversely, the original affair was showcased on the precipice of […]

The classically elegant neckties of Passaggio Cravatte

April 18, 2013

3

It’s often a second thought, the necktie is normally chosen after one has decided which suit to wear. That said, ties allow us to express individual style- they can make an ensemble dressier or turn a formal look into preppy smart casual. The real tragedy is that neckties are the single most versatile dress up-dress […]

Monsieur’s Guide to Suit Construction: Canvassed vs Fused

April 13, 2013

0

Bespoke has been thoroughly abused as a marketing term, as a result, even newer less knowledgeable tailors misuse (I hope) the term and use it interchangeably with “made to measure”. For gentlemen, the art of suit construction is not to be taken lightly, coming from a long tradition of Savile Row artisans, the creation of […]
