The GQ "Best Stuff" Box For April 2019 — Hims, Face Washes, House 99, & Lots More!! But Is It Worth It???

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…

ModernTailor Made-To-Measure Dress Shirts Finally In Review!

ModernTailor is one of the oldest and original online MTM shirtmakers. As far as pricing, etc., they seem to sit right in the middle — not super cheap, not high end by any means either. They’re not a particularly modern brand, nor do they have anything unique or special specifically to offer, as you’ll see. They just seem to be one of the first companies doing this, and so they more than deserve a full review. Here is what we think of ModernTailor’s custom shirt offerings ($54.95+)…

Custom Pants Online From Woodies — A Review

We have reviewed custom shirts from Woodies before in the past. Our conclusion? Solid fabrics, solid construction and quality, but a lackluster website and not a super flexible pattern leading to difficulty in truly nailing down a perfect fit. Overall, then, solid, but not if you’re super picky about fit. This winter, though, they released flannel-lined chinos. These are something I have wanted for some time, but usually are not available in a fit that I want…

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!..
