    Pretty much every retail store we shop at features a ‘custom’ fit or ‘athletic’ fit tee shirt for us men.

  • Best Vests for Men
    A vest is one of those pieces of menswear that separates the men from the boys. You’re serious about looking your best when sporting a vest. Dressing up is cool again, and wearing a vest is one of the best ways to achieve that polished look. Think Cary Grant, Frank Sinatra – rocking the three-piece suit… it’s all about that extra piece. In its revival, the vest can be worn alone, without its sidekicks (the matching sport coat and trouser). Today’s vest looks great over a vintage t-shirt or button down shirt with the sleeves rolled up. Here are my picks for the Best of the Best.

    Fall is pretty much here, guys. Us men need to start brainstorming as to how to dress appropriately as the leaves begin to fall.

  • Best Man Bags
    Let’s face it fellas, we all have to go to work. (Ok, a few lucky ones don’t.) Just because you are lucky enough to have secured that high powered job that allows you to travel the world, make life or death business decisions, or handle a copious amount of cash on a daily basis does not mean you are free to carry everything to work in a backpack. Walk into the lobby of your fancy office building with a backpack or a re-used plastic bag in hand, and you can kiss your corner office goodbye. These days us men have more options than ever in bags to bring to work…shamefully dubbed by women everywhere an "Man Bag". For sanity’s sake, we’ll just call them bags for men. Briefcases no longer stand in a league of their own in the work place, as messenger bags and tote bags (yes! Tote bags!) have become acceptable forms of transportation for your laptop and legal pads. Here are my selections for the best bags for men, still worthy of bringing with you to the bar for beers after work.

  • Best Ties for Guys
    When I was a little kid I used to hate dressing up. My parents would always try to get me to wear a tie and jacket and I was never the least bit cooperative. I’m not sure whether to credit my parents or just the fact that I have grown up, but ties are part of my daily wardrobe these days. Being preppy is cool again. Blue blazers with gold buttons, Ray Ban sunglasses, penny loafers, and argyle sweaters are sold at the most fashion forward stores. 1983 called and wants its fashion back. Regardless, part of dressing preppy is wearing a cool tie. Slim or wide, striped or solid, ties are an easy way take to finish off an everyday look.

  • Best Cardigans
    Once a staple for boarding school teens and grandfathers alike, the cardigan sweater is back… in a big way and has become the new staple piece for today’s well-dressed man. I know, I know what you may be thinking; “A cardigan? I think Mister Rogers is the only guy who rocks the cardigan right?” Well, if you really feel that Zac Efron, Penn Badgley, and Jake Gylenhall are the new Mister Rogers, I would say you may be right. The Cardigan sweater has taken a new identity in the midst of a prep-influenced revolution in menswear.

    The overall style of the cardigan has remained the same; a v-neck sweater with buttons down the front; however there’s nothing old and frumpy about today’s cardigan. Gone are the itchy, bulky, ill-fitting sweaters your dad used to wear. The must-have cardigans of today boast vintage inspired details, slimmer fits, and the use of luxurious fabrics. Guys, ditch the pleated khakis and turtlenecks and pull out your slim dark jeans and v-neck tee shirts. The cardigan is back, and no longer is it your grandpa’s Sunday morning reading sweater.
