One Size Tall Doesn’t Fit All: Tall Men’s Body Type Breakdown

What has surprised me most about styling tall fellows over the years has been that despite being perceived as cutting the most enviable and attractive figures, many tall men struggle with the same body issues and dysmorphic perceptions that women do. While there isn’t the same vocabulary or attention paid to men’s self esteem issues,…


Shop by Shape, Not By Size: Tall Women’s Body Type Breakdown

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again—even when it comes to “tall”, one size doesn’t fit all.

The Paul Fredrick Look: A Stylish Fit That’s Not Too Conservative At All

It’s increasingly rare to find a store that offers both a broad-ranged selection of traditional dress staples—sport coats, suits, year-round wool pants, Italian-made footwear, dress shirts, cufflinks—and an equally fine range of natty casual shirts, twills, and even bowties in every pattern, colorway, and permutation you could possibly imagine. It’s even more rare that the same store carries stock…
