Spier & Mackay Custom MTM Dress Shirts Review

While Spier & Mackay has become super well known in the menswear space for their suits, shirts, and sport coats, offering superb values, high end fabrics, and great cuts at beyond reasonable prices, they also have a lesser known made-to-measure shirt program ($79+) that you can order from online. Naturally, it should come as no surprise to you that we had to try it out, continuing our coverage of all the online MTM companies we can get our hands on!..

Did You Know Thursday Boots Makes A Women’s Line Too? Well, They Do & They’re Just As Great

It’s no secret that we are big fans of Thursday Boots around here. They make some great shoes at quite affordable prices. They look great, are super comfortable, and really do hold up nicely over time. Are they the strongest, most durable, best built shoes on the market? Or course not. But at the the price point, we think they are some of the absolute best. In short, they punch above their weight, and you’re gettin a great value for your money (which is what we are all about around these parts)…

Hockerty Custom Made To Measure Suit Review

We continue our ongoing series of covering all of the online made to measure clothing options! This time it’s with a brand you have likely heard of, Hockerty. In short, think of them as Indochino, only cheaper. They’re trying to offer and cater to a market that finds even Indochino expensive. Dubious? Well, you should be. We didn’t have high hopes with Hockerty from the get-go, and, in the end, we were not at all surprised…

A Review Of The GQ "Best Stuff" Box For January 2019

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. We were, as it happens, super, super impressed with the first three boxes, and now it’s time to take a look at their fourth. GQ’s box delivers every quarter, as opposed to the more common monthly boxes you might be used to…

Lanieri Custom Suit Review

As we continue to cover online MTM here on the site, we are journeying further into the world of online MTM suiting. We have already reviewed both Indochino and Black Lapel — two of the biggest and most popular companies in this space. Now we turn our attention to another contender, Lanieri ($740+). Their slogan is “Italians do fit better” and it very well encapsulates what sets Lanieri apart from the other online MTM suiting companies…

A Review Of The Frank Clegg Leather Computer Briefcase

Frank Clegg is a family owned and operated leather-works company out of the USA. While for many into menswear and related accessories, they need no introduction, for others, a few words shall suffice. They are, in many ways, some of the greatest leather workers in the US today. They make some of the finest, hand-drafted leather bags and products that you can buy at any price…

Amazon Goodthreads Haul + Review

Amazon has been making bigger and bigger moves into the fashion space. While they have been faced with some difficulties, they don’t seem to be slowing down. And a big part of this is their creation of their own clothing labels. Especially in the men’s sector. One of these Amazon-made labels is Goodthreads. They are inexpensive men’s staples and basics. So, of course, we took a look to see if they are worth your hard-earned money…

We Tried Topman “Muscle Fit” Shirts!

Topman is not exactly known for their superb quality or high-end lines of clothing. They’re not super respected, per se, as far as those things are concerned. Still, they seem to occupy an interesting space somewhere above H&M or Zara — though not by much. Their clothes come from the UK, and so their styling leans a bit more in that direction…

A Review Of MVST Hard-Case Aluminum Luggage

In a world where Away seems to be dominating the luggage space, it would seem that there is no real room for serious competitors. Which is why we were surprised when we learned about MVST, a new entry into the luggage space. Specifically, they’re focusing on aluminum, hard-case luggage. They might not have a battery capable of charging your phone, but they do have plenty of things that we really like about them. So, without further ado, let’s get into it…

Blank Label Custom Dress Shirts Review

Now is time for yet another entry into our collection of online MTM company reviews. This time, it’s Blank Label. Unlike many other MTM companies, Blank Label actually offers a wide range of many, many different garments, offering everything from dress shirts, to corduroy pants, to suits, to polos, to outerwear. In time, we hope to review all of these items. For now, though, we’re starting with the staple, the bread and butter: dress shirts…

Review: Asket Oxford Shirts & Sweatshirt

Asket is a company that is rethinking men’s basics. Now, there are more than a handful of companies out there claiming to do this nowadays, but there are quite a few things that make Asket different than the rest. For one, they focus on the luxury market. Meaning, their prices are not cheap, and the quality is quite high. Second, they have a unique sizing/fit model, wherein you choose your size, as well as you body type, and length.

A Review Of Woodies Custom Casual Dress Shirts

Here we are with yet another made-to-measure shirting company review! These are, as ever, exciting times to be into menswear, as custom clothing that is tailored just the way you like it is becoming more affordable than ever. As we always say around here, while some companies that offer custom clothing are certainly objectively better than others, overall, it really just comes down to the exact type of garment you are looking for. This is because each company has its own strengths and weaknesses, and is better at some things, and worse at other…

A Review Of The Stuart & Lau Capstone Backpack

Gentlemen, Stuart & Lau has done it again. A while back we reviewed their Cary Briefcase and felt that it was one of the most refined, detailed, and delightful products we had ever tested. More recently, they released a backpack — The Capstone Backpack ($335) — and we really love this thing as well. So, without any more of an introduction, let’s get into it…

Review + Giveaway: 3DM Dress Shoes

Like Adro (which we reviewed a short while ago), 3DM is another company we had never heard of before. When they reached out to us to ask if we were interested in taking a look at their shoes we were definitely interested in taking a closer look. The shoes are all made in India, and word on the street is that 3DM actually is the company providing the shoes for many new micro-brands or random companies you might find at the higher end sections of a store like DSW.

Review Of Hockerty Custom Dress Shirts

As a reader of this site, you are no doubt well aware that the world of online made to measure clothing companies is experiencing quite a boom right now. There are too many to count, and too many to keep track of. We’re here to do our best in trying, though, and so, today, we are taking a look at a custom dress shirt from Hockerty ($59+)…

Review + Giveaway: Adro Business Casual Brogue Derby Shoes

Adro is a company we had never heard of before. When they reached out to us to ask if we were interested in taking a look at their shoes we were intruded. They are based out of Mexico, and make a number of similar looking, but nice looking all the same, brogue and derby style shoes. The sorts of shoes perfect with chinos, corduroy pants, or dark denim. And, for a USD price of ~$100, they seemed like a bit of a steal…

Review: Thursday Boot Co.'s President Suede Boot

Thursday Boot Co. is a company you’ve likely heard about before. While they got popular amongst menswear enthusiasts for their boots, they recently released a line of dress shoes which we have already covered here on the site. Now, we get to go back and review what they are truly known for, their boots. For this review, we’re taking a look at their President Boot in Cognac Suede ($199).
