Epaulet never disappointments with awesome knits. With fall and winter just around the corner, these would be great additions to those that do not have chunky knits already. I really like the flecks on the sweaters!
I found the receipt for my first Alden boots bought back in 2010. The same style now sells for $550 at the same establishment I bought mine from. With such a relatively steep increase yearly, I don’t see myself buying Aldens much anymore. The only pairs I will buy would be #2 or #4 shell cordovan if I can ever find them.
Anonymous asked: what collar did you use for the everyday dress shirt from modern tailor? not the tux one. thanks!
It’s not from Modern Tailor. It’s by My Tailor. It’s a hybrid. I went to their office and had them modified a spread collar they have available already.
Two shirts I ordered came in today: a regular spread collar white dress shirt to replace the one that wore out over the years, and a tuxedo shirt with hidden placket and pique bib. Now I need to wear the tux sooner than later :)
I’m pretty happy to see essential pieces from this collaboration being relaunched, especially to places where Uniqlo had no presence with new stores popping up around the country. This is my favorite collaboration line from any designers with any stores/departments. Each piece is so minimalist, yet sharp and timeless. If you live in an area that gets all four seasons, I think every single piece from the relaunch can serve a purpose in your closet.

I peeped the line up for the annual Gap x GQ collaboration and it is the best one yet (given that the concept is only a few years old). The prices seem to be on the higher end though, factoring in what the typical Gap shopper would spend. I recall last year’s collection went on sale fairly quick after the release. I am going to guess it will happen again with some pieces this year.

I finally put in an order with No Man Walks Alone last week. If the forum affiliated/brewed company was around back when I was rebuilding my wardrobe, I surely would be a regular customer (not to say I won’t be returning!)
The customized box and personalized note are pretty cool. The best part was the price. With the special promotion they were running, the shoes came out to a very attractive price.
I’ve always disliked single monkstrap shoes. That was why I passed up the great deals I saw throughout the years. A couple of months ago, I began to look around for a single monkstrap, preferably in black on a sleek last. It was a tough search since the popular of double monkstraps is still in full swing. I randomly stumbled onto this pair on a search, and it was an instant buy. This is my second pair of Alfred Sargent shoes, and the quality is top notch as I expected. Very underrated brand in the USA I think.
