Tailoring for a Small Frame feat. Dennis Thompson

Similar to our friend Waraire Boswell, Philadelphia native Dennis Thompson got into custom tailoring out of necessity. At 5’5″ 125 lbs, everything off-the-rack was way too big and provided no shape. Dennis studied fashion design at the Art Institute in Philadelphia, followed by fashion merchandising at LIM in NYC – “I thought it was important […]

Designer by Necessity feat. Waraire Boswell

Through TSBmen I’ve had the opportunity to meet many fashion designers, and get up close and personal with a lot of menswear collections. Waraire Boswell is my new favorite designer. Not only because he has great story and a sharp eye for style, but also because he’s one of the coolest and humblest guys I’ve […]

Get Nappy: Suede Jackets for Spring

Early Spring is the perfect time of year for a lightweight suede bomber (as long as there’s no rain in the forecast). I’ve always loved the soft napped texture of a quality suede; it ads a depth and richness to even the most simple look. Here’s three of my favorites Spring suede bombers, each of […]

Patterns & Pastels feat. Curran Swint

Our friend Sabir Peele has been documenting and cultivating an up-and-coming style scene in Philadelphia, PA. So I asked him to recommend a couple guys who were bringing a fresh perspective to menswear in the city of brotherly love. Meet Curran J. Swint, designer and founder the uplifting streetwear brand Kings Rule Together. Curran’s positive, uplifting message (such […]

1 Piece/3 Ways: Cognac Chelsea Boots

I love finding affordable footwear with simple, elegant design. After writing so much about the value of expensive footwear, I think affordable shoes have gotten a bad rap.  After all, I think one of the best things you can do to make your expensive shoes really last the test of time, is to add a couple pairs […]

Fashion Makes Fools of us All

Style is not something you are born with. I believe it is purely nurture over nature. It’s learned by observing others. Whether it be your father, your friend, or your favorite style blogger. Like any other skill, dressing well and developing good personal style takes practice. It’s a journey. And like every journey, there’s ups […]

Modern Menswear: Oh So 70′s

It’s amazing how much a pair of glasses, or sunglasses, can change an entire look. I recently found these vintage-inspired Matsuda gold aviators in the pocket of a jacket that I hadn’t worn in a long time (that happens to me quite often) and I’ve been wearing them steady. They give my look an instant […]

Three-Piece Spring Suits feat. Ryan Devens

Ryan Devens runs the made-to-measure suit program at San Francisco based Taylor Stitch, but he honed his style while apprenticing for a master tailor in Nashville Tennessee. “I wore suits every damn day there. Parties, coffee shops, mexican restaurants, the grocery store. You see, in Nashville, or really the South, wearing a suit is easy. […]

Separates w/ Swag feat. Alan Maramag

What’s the difference between a suit jacket and a blazer? Very little, really. Especially if that suit is cut from a textured cloth with a subtle pattern. Our friend Alan Maramag from San Francisco shows us how he invests in the right suiting fabrics that can easily double as separates. Alan’s style pedigree also represents […]

1 Piece/3 Ways: The Pajama Top

As winter slowly comes to an end, it’s a great time to get creative with lightweight layers before rushing to polos and tees. I’ve had this blackwatch flannel pajama top for a long time. I think it was a Christmas present from way back in the day. Then one day, as a side-project in design […]

Menswear Nerd turned GQ Editor feat. Jian DeLeon

If you’re an avid reader of GQ.com, you’ve probably run across Jian DeLeon‘s byline. What you probably don’t know is how he got there by gradually climbing through the ranks of internet menswear enthusiasts and forum posters. This young man is a student of the game in the truest sense of the words. Accordingly, he’s also […]

Menswear Muses feat. Karyn Bailey

Maybe it’s just me, but I find that well-tailored menswear looks just as sexy (if not sexier) on women than it does on men. The best part is, women have more freedom (and therefore more fun) with fashion styling, making them the perfect muses of classic menswear. Naturally, they take more risks with colors, fabrics, […]
