Disclosure and Review Policy

As a reader of this site, we think there are a few important things you should know about us. We want to be straight and upfront, so we’ve collected these three things here.


The Peak Lapel is owned by Stryx and is its company blog, aiming to provide the reader with comprehensive, insightful, and, above all, honest reviews of products in the menswear and men’s style space. It is our goal to produce the best editorial content we possibly can as a companion to Stryx. We’ve been doing exactly this for years, and hope to continue doing so long into the future. Consider us your guide to men’s clothing, style, and confident living.


Unless we clearly disclose to the contrary at the front of the article, we buy outright all of the products that we review. Again, this is really important for you to understand as it is an essential ingredient to a truly honest review.


We know we will often come across products or companies that we want to review that, in one way or another, are (or may become) a competitor to Stryx. This is a problem since it is impossible for us to give you an unbiased review of such products or such companies. Thus, we will either refrain from giving a review entirely if we have anything negative to say, or we will solely focus on and highlight the positive aspects of such products if we think highly of the product(s). Essentially, we will only review competitor products that we absolutely love. 

Let us know if you have any questions, or if you think there is any way we can be more transparent. We appreciate your input.
