The Best Warby Parker Competitor Out There: Cubitts Spectacles

It is no secret that Warby Parker has essentially cornered the online, attainable luxury, eyeglasses market. Not to mention the fact that they are slowly building out a physical retail space empire. Nevertheless, there are still some worthwhile competitors. Tortoise & Blonde or RAEN just to name two solid ones. But nothing comes quite as close to how easy Warby Parker is, both as far as their price, quality, selection, and home try-on…

Jomers New Tailored-Fit Italian Travel Jeans In Review

Jomers is one of those companies that has just been killing it lately. We’ve taken a look at them before, though this time we had much, much better results. So, what do I mean by “killing it”? Well, I would put it this way: Think about Bonobos. They have great clothing, with tons of fit options, but their stuff is super, prohibitively, expensive. In other words, it’s overpriced…

GQ’s “Best Stuff Box” Review 2.0 (June 2018)

As soon as we heard that GQ would be getting into the subscription box game, you knew, of course that we would have to take a look and review it for you guys.

While booking appointments is sometimes annoying there, and not every staff member is as knowledgable or as helpful as the next, it was still better to go in person than simply make these tweaks over the phone or email with customer service…

The Full Indochino Custom Suit Review & Comparison To SuitSupply (Part 1)

Indochino could be a case study in what happens when you expand a new business too quickly. They reached too high, flew too close to the sun too quickly, and got burned. A brief search on the web will turn up countless horror stories about Indochino suits that fit terribly, inconsistent sizing from one order to the next, cheap materials and build quality and construction, and poor fabric choices and matching…

One Look, Two Prices: The Perfect Summer Weekend Getup

Welcome back to our latest series here on The Peak Lapel, where we take one, timely, seasonal look, and show you how to accomplish it at two radically different budgets. Of course, we really don’t expect anyone to go for broke with the fully luxury version, but, certainly, a lot can be learned from these exercises, and perhaps a single luxury piece here and there is worth investing in…
