Winter Warm Dress and Casual Shirts

Dressing warm in the winter can be a breeze with layering a nice undershirt beneath your custom dress shirt. We have tons of well made and interesting new fabrics in stock. Currently we are seeing a lot of checks and plaids like the beautiful styles below.

It’s easy to mix a pattern tie with a plaid or check shirt as long as the base colors remain the same. Try a fun colorful suit and add a matching pocket square again in the same base color scheme.

We know you like your shirt to fit like a dream, as any guy does, but have you ever thought about taking the style of your shirt more into consideration?

Perhaps you like a button down or a hidden button down collar. Perhaps you like the spread collar. Whether or not the collar matters to you, we recommend you try out different styles once in a while to keep things fresh.

Flannel shirts are a great way to add another layer of warmth and they don’t always have to scream “lumberjack”.  Most often we see plaids and checks in flannel shirting fabrics but were you aware your solid colored dress shirts can also be made in flannel? This tan shirt was styled with a button down collar and he chooses a high V-neck sweater and just a hint of the tie knot. Well done, sir.

Most Dapperly Dressed Men 2015

Here are our top five dapperly dressed dudes for 2015:

1. Justin Theroux

Are Gift Certificates Impersonal?

Gift certificates may be a quick and easy gift to give but are they still considered too impersonal?

gift-certificates

In recent years the negative stigma of gift certificates has begun to fade and many thoughtful friends and family have realized it may actually be the perfect gift. Although you may not know what the recipient would buy within a certain shop, you most likely know where it is they prefer to shop. In my opinion, as long as you are gearing the gift certificate toward their interests, you are in great shape. Now, have I mentioned we offer gift certificates?

Wardrobe Wednesday: Colorblock Ties

This week’s Wardrobe Wednesday is dedicated to a quick easy way to update your closet. A color block tie will look great with your Fall/Winter suit and show the modern side of your style personality.

colorblocktie3

Color blocking doesn’t have to be done with bright bold colors. There are many options in neutral shades as well. One great thing about a color block tie is if you choose the shades right, they can go with most everything.  Another great thing is that you can find many  that are actually hand made.

colorblock-tie2

The color blocking can even be super subtle if you choose a tie with one shade just a hint darker than the other. Very classy.
