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: 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…

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)…

Banana Republic Pants Haul & Roundup Review

If you read this site, you know that we have been pretty down on Banana Republic (and many other similar companies!) for their utter lack of consistency in fit across their product line. This is why we’ve been trying to do more of these roundup/haul style posts in which we order a bunch of items from one brand, and compare them to each other…

Jomers New Tailored-Fit Italian Travel Jeans In Review

Jomers is one of those companies that has just been killing it lately. We’ve taken a look at them before, though this time we had much, much better results. So, what do I mean by “killing it”? Well, I would put it this way: Think about Bonobos. They have great clothing, with tons of fit options, but their stuff is super, prohibitively, expensive. In other words, it’s overpriced…

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…

Review: The Insanely Comfortable Bonobos Tech 5-Pocket Pant

Being uncomfortable is a thing of the past, it seems. However, while many men take this to mean it’s fine to stroll about in sweat shorts and a tank top, classier folk know that such outfits should be reserved for the gym. Still, there is no need to be anything other than absolutely comfortable, as the new wave of “tech wear” allows for what appears to, say, a standard chino to actually be a super comfortable, stretchy, moisture wicking, lightweight material pant that is probably more comfortable and cooler than your favorite sweats.

Review: The Bonobos Travel Jeans (with Fit Measurements)

Recently, we’ve been taking a look at some of the best “tech-wear” pants/bottoms here on the site. We have a lot more on the way, too. Now, though, we’re taking a look at one of the most beloved and well-known (and amongst the first) in the “stretchy pants” arena. They are the Bonobos Travel Jeans ($128), bringing the best of denim and jeans together with the best of stretch fabrics…

Review: The New Extra Slim Fit Stretch Chino and More from Charles Tyrwhitt

Charles Tyrwhitt continues to expand their offerings. While they won the hearts of many well-dressed guys with their shirts (and their many fits), Charles Tyrwhitt has been adding to their store things like great outerwear options, suits, pants, chinos, casual shirts, polos — you name it, they offer it. For a while, though, their offering outside of their shirts did not get much attention, and many were not cut well, nor were they made out of attractive or modern fabrics...

Review: The Tie Bar’s New Trim Fit Dress Pants

It comes as no shock to us here at The Peak Lapel every time The Tie Bar releases a new line of menswear. While they started with ties — and gained immense and well deserved popularity by selling solid quality ties at the very reasonable price of $15-$20 — they have been slowly building out their menswear empire first by offering dress shirts, and now, the latest, by offering dress pants at $75...

 

Worth It?: Are The UNIS Gio Chinos Worth Your $200?

Welcome to a new series here on The Peak Lapel where we review some high end items — articles of clothing or accessories that cost quite a bit more than your average equivalent from your typical big box retailers like J Crew or Banana Republic — and then as the simple question: Is it worth the extra money? Because, when it comes to style and clothing, value is really the key question...
