Drake's grenadine tie
I think if you were to categorise the main aspects of cloth, they would fall into colour, pattern and texture. That’s probably the order most men would notice those aspects in as well, but I would argue their importance is the other way around.

Lanvin's fall/winter collection for 2011-12 leaves us wanting to bring the hat back--a real man's hat, nothing that's been appropriated and had its reputation sullied (we're not specifying, though). Lanvin's dark suits paired with shrunken overcoats provide a thought-provoking shape that looks...

Dressing the Man Alan Flusser
Classic men’s style is well suited to scholarly erudition, based as it is in so much history and the trends that speak of centuries rather than seasons. But reading the history of men’s clothing won’t get you very far towards knowing what to wear yourself. You need both. And the best books...

A jacket like this but, you know, well made
Suits don’t necessarily fit into everyone’s day-to-day life. For some, in an office full of corporate lawyers, a suit is a necessity and a uniform. It is almost harder to take an interest in clothing that is imposed on you in this way. For other men, the barrier to developing a sartorial...

Bill Amberg's bags! They are awesome. If I weren't up to my eyeballs in weekenders and totes, I might give this one a try, but for now? I'll have to shop vicariously. The Hunter Rucksack has an old-timey feel to it, with a drawstring opening secured by a single snapped flap. The vegetable-dyed...
