The Blank Label Three Piece Herringbone Suit

I’ve wanted a suit that was different than the usual off-the-rack variety (lack thereof?). A suit that was distinctive; a gentlemanly, three-piece herringbone tweed that would be equally at home on the streets of London, Boston, or New York. For this I turned to Blank Label, a bespoke men’s clothing company located in an understated,…

“You’re Stylin’ it Today, Baby!” with a Clavon’s Wear Custom Suit

There are suits you wear to blend in with the people in business meetings, the conservatively-tailored suits that show you are man of substance (although that substance might be Wonder Bread).

Off the Rack, and On The Right Track with Jones New York

I got lucky with his Men’s Wearhouse off-the-rack goodie from Jones New York (see similar here). At 6’5″, I can often get away with buying “normal” clothes, just barely. This suit struck me as a retro look, though I couldn’t totally explain why. The high waist and straight pant legs harkened back to the 70s when…
