In the fall/winter season, a nice selection of sweaters really adds style and utility to your wardrobe.  We all wear sport jackets less often than we used to, so a sweater helps complete an outfit and makes you feel a little more dressed than when you’re simply wearing pants and a shirt.  It also acts […]

I try to pay attention to what the major color forecasters have to say. Sometimes it’s more useful than others. The color palette we offer evolves from season to season and our customers are eager to see something new and fresh. At the same time, they are markedly more fond of certain colors than others. […]

They say that clothes make the man.  Let’s all hope that this isn’t true, but being well-dressed is still a good thing.  Wearing the right shoes really separates the men from the boys when it comes to demonstrating one’s wardrobe acumen.  Here are a few current, but classic styles that I like for this fall […]

   You must have noticed the great variety in fit silhouettes lately. Some young men are wearing very slim pants along with short, tight suit and sport jackets. Quite a number of more mature men are hanging in there with pleated pants and longer, fuller jackets. We’re in between these two extremes. Our clothes are […]

We have two new fall sweaters styles that are made of a yarn that’s a blend of lambswool, yak and cashmere. When I was working with the yarn spinner, this one caught me a bit off-guard. I knew sort of what they looked like and I remembered something about yak butter tea from a documentary […]

We live in Colorado, which is famous for having warm, sunny fall weather. Last week, we were wearing Bermudas and polos, playing golf and riding bikes. This morning it was 27 degrees. It’s still nice during the day, but it is now officially sweater weather. This is good news for me because I love sweaters. […]

In thinking about what we do and what our customer expects from us, we tried to come up with a common thread that ties it all together. The title of this blog is the tag line that we landed on. It isn’t based on pretension or self-indulgence, but it certainly has to do with an […]

The 11th Commandment

Thou shalt never button the bottom button of a suit or sport jacket. Keep an eye peeled. You’ll see men all over the place breaking this rule. I see actors, politicians and national newscasters breaking this rule. Please trust me on this one. The origin of the rule is more than obscure, but my guess […]

The Benefits of Tobacco

While it’s pretty widely accepted that setting it on fire and inhaling isn’t such a good idea, tobacco is a great fall wardrobe color. I happen to think it’s a nearly perfect pant color for this time of year. We’ve all worn khakis forever and this is just a darker alternative. It fits between saddle […]
