The Full Indochino Custom Suit Review & Comparison To SuitSupply (Part 2)

Because I really wanted to nail the fit, I decided to go back to their store in order to be fitted a second time and be able to make the tweaks with their staff, in person. 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…

J Crew's New Short Sleeved Stretch OCBD Reviewed

A short sleeve button down shirt is a great option for the warmer weather. It’s a bit more put-together than a polo, without the full-on stuffiness of a regular, long sleeved button down. Plus, if you get it in either bold prints, or very subdued solids like white or pink, it’s a great, casual option that can look great with a pair of shorts, just as quickly as it could under a blazer…

A Review of Ebbets Field Flannels Baseball Hats — The Hat You're Missing Out On

If you are like me, and require actually sized baseball hats as opposed to “one sized fits all,” you probably have a pretty hard time finding anything. Most all baseball caps I have come across are only available in a “one size fits all”, with that adjustable strap/tab at the back. This doesn’t work at all for guys with bigger heads, like myself, as, even if I could get the rear of the hat to fit, the front would look seriously out of proportion…

A Review of T.M. Lewin’s Outerwear — Quilted Jacket & Raincoat

It is very important to have a good collection of jackets and coats. Depending on the weather, you might need one of a few different kinds of outerwear, and making sure you are ready whatever the weather might throw at you is key. So, getting a good jacket is important. There aren’t as many options out there when it comes to outerwear as when it comes to something like, say, a dress shirt, though…

Review: Mack Weldon’s New Slim Fit Vesper Polo

It’s no secret that we think a polo is a great summer option. It’s the perfect top for the warmer months. It is neither too dressy, nor too casual. It can look just as at home paired with shorts and sneakers as it can under a blazer or even a suit. Still, not all polos are created equal. Some have different fits, styles — like pockets, thicker or spread collars, and so on — and, perhaps most importantly, different fabrics…

Mill No. 8 Custom LaSalle Cotton Dress Pants Review

Increasingly, it seems like online made to measure service for men are becoming a dime a dozen. That’s why when certain companies really stand out, they’re worth taking a look at. Mill No. 8 is undoubtedly one of those companies. While there are many companies that pop up and offer just custom made dress shirts, Mill No. 8 also offers a nice line of custom pants as well…
