I give you the sterling silver Banker Bear keychain.

In the spirit of giving, we want to give you a chance to gift Everlane. It’s simple:
Using the Pin It button, pin from Everlane any items you want to gift with the label #gifteverlane.
Next Wednesday, we’ll send one item to the person selected so that they can gift it for the holidays.
We want to give a warm “welcome back” to Kiyoshi Martinez, who will now be contributing to our blog on a regular basis. Kiyoshi wrote our “Ramen Noodle Budget” series earlier this year, which focused on how men can dress better without spending a fortune. He’ll be writing posts here again in the same spirit, including a more regular coverage of notable menswear sales. This will be in addition to pumping up the sales roundup we do every week for The Inside Track. So, welcome back, Kiyoshi – we look forward to your posts.

Sponsor Welcome: Ledbury
We’d like to give a warm welcome to our newest sponsor at Put This On: Ledbury!
Ledbury makes men’s shirts. Their designs have a more robust collar, so that it won’t collapse underneath your sport coat, and a lower placed second button on the front. The lower second button allows men to wear their shirts casually without having to button it too high, which might be constrictive without a necktie, or too low, which might be … inappropriate. They also have a slightly more shaped torso line for a slimmer looking fit.
Note that from now until September 3rd, they’re running a Labor Day “bundle sale.” Buy three shirts and get $ 100 off; buy five and get $ 200 off; or buy seven and get $ 300 off. There are a couple of styles on sale as well.
So, thanks Ledbury for making Put This On possible!
If you would like to advertise on Put This On, just email us at email@example.com.
Answers you can give to the question, “why are you so dressed up?”
- I just came from/am on my way to the office.
- I have a job interview.
- My probation hearing is today.
- I want to look good for the Rapture.
- The costume shop was out of Sailor Moon costumes.

I can no longer give you specific outfit ideas for interviews. I have done it in the past, and I cba to link the posts to every single interview question I receive. I instead am going to give you this:
Reverse your role here for a second. You are the employer and you are waiting for your potential employee to arrive for his/her interview. What do you want this individual to wear? How do people of this certain workplace dress? Is it formal? Business casual? Or extremely casual? What’s the occasion of this job? Office work? Sales floor?
Main thing about getting dressed for interviews is that it’s okay for you to overdress. It’s always okay for you to be overdressed. For example, would you rather go to a social event and be the only guy in a t shirt and jeans, or the only guy in a suit? Honestly, I would go with the latter.
Keep your hair neat, make sure there are no visible wrinkles on your bottoms, stop biting your nails, and go for a strong, firm handshake.
Well said, I just ignore all the messages/emails now about:
- where to buy a cheaper version of what I posted – seriously..
- what is the “perfect” suit
- what do I (me) do for a living
- who is
- which tailor to use in HKG – & the best is who is the cheapest
- how to change personal style
- what is the dimension of cuff, hem, collar etc.
- what bike to get
- & the list goes on
