My first post in over six months, I believe; but I got to wear my favorite Gant x MB Madras.
It’s the little things like hidden details, traditional post, heavy card, cloth boxes, hand written notes, stories & unexpected gifts that make the difference in this world of #DressedByInternet generation..

Your Style – Men
Post GoodFridayRoll conversation about why the Brits have bad teeth..
I took a few minutes this morning to post some of our most limited pocket square designs – we have fewer than half a dozen of each of these. All available in our Etsy shop.
Sometimes people send me horrible clothing items. I rarely post them. These, though… these are in a class of their own. Chainmail toe shoes. Astonishing.
And that’s without even getting into the part of their marketing copy which reads, “Get undivided attention of friends and people around you – and have fun!”
Goodness, gracious. If your primary sartorial issue is that people’s attention to you and your shoes isn’t undivided… oof.
My friend Robert Krulwich wrote a fascinating little post on his NPR blog about men’s clothing-buying habits. Apparently menswear spending peaks in a man’s early 50s, the essentially falls off a cliff. I’ve included the graph for shirts above, but it’s true for coats and shoes and even underwear. It reminded me of Frank Costanza’s 1970s duds on Seinfeld. I wonder if we calcify in the image and clothing of our most powerful, affluent selves. Or if we just don’t care anymore. Food for thought.
