Review: TailorStore Custom Blazers

We have taken a loot at TailorStore before. We reviewed their shirts, in fact. This time, though, we are looking at their blazers ($215+). We concluded that their shirts were actually a very solid value, so the question now is whether the same thing is true about their blazers and more formal “tailoring”…

A Review Of The White Leather Sneaker That Started A Trend: The Common Projects Achilles

If you are looking for a clean and simple pair of white sneakers look no further than the Common Projects white original Achilles ($410). Common Projects is known for quality and simplicity throughout its products. In this review, we will be focusing on the white original Achilles sneaker that started the clean, minimalist, white leather sneaker cult…

Everyone’s Favorite Menswear Brand Just Released Sunglasses: A Review Of The New Spier & Mackay Shades (+ Giveaway!)

We’ve spoken about Spier & Mackay at length before on the site. They are widely regarded as one of the best values in menswear these days, and we have been big fans of theirs from the very beginning. As time has gone on, and as major big-box retailers like J Crew have been on the decline, Spier & Mackay have been expanding their offerings from suits and dress shirts to ties, shoes, chinos, polos, sweaters, and now, sunglasses as well…

Breathe New Life Into Your Watches! We Review Holben’s Watch Straps

We’re big fans of watches around these parts. Which should come as no surprise to anyone reading this, since a proper wristwatch is the completion to any outfit. It’s the one sort of “jewelry” piece that men get to wear, and it’s a great way to make a subtle statement, and show off your personality. The thing is, though, that after many years of wear you might become a little bit bored with your watch…

Review: Blank Label’s Custom Tailored Pants

Here we are, back once again with another review of online, MTM clothing. We have taken a look at Blank Label before, specifically their custom shirt offerings. While they have a clean website, nice fabric curation, and produce a quality garment, we found their fit inconsistent across multiple orders, perhaps the biggest flaw in their system…

Hockerty Custom Topcoat Review — How Is Placing A Second Order???

We have reviewed Hockerty before — including their outerwear — but a great test of a MTM company is whether they can produce garments with any level of consistency. This is especially true with offerings like outerwear which is not a super-easy thing to get right, and should only be offered if it can be done correctly. We were not at all happy with the consistency (or lack thereof) when it came to Hockerty’s shirts but we wanted to see if perhaps the experience with their outerwear would be different…

Review: Bluffworks New Travel Jeans + Comparison

We’ve taken a look at Bluffworks in the past and have been quite happy with their products. They make “tech wear”, or clothing that looks like it’s just typical, average, normal clothing but actually has all sorts of special technical properties that make it stretch, water-resistant, sweat-resistant, stretchy, and so on. Their suit, for instance, is washable! Recently, though, they released a new item: Travel Jeans ($125)…

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…
