So Very British.

Cozy, or as the Danes would say “Hygge”
I am surprised this hasn’t gotten more attention. This image is wonderful.

It Might Be On Sale
I may have just been lucky, but while killing time before a movie a week or so ago, I went in to the local J. Crew and stumbled upon a small stash of North Sea Clothing Explorers. Even better, I found one in my size, 44. The price? $99.99. Then I saw that it was an additional 50% off. 
They even stacked my student discount. So I walked out spending $43 and some change.
I haven’t seen these on the website, so it may only be at a few locations. But, it might be worth visiting to see if you can score a well made sweater for a great price.

*These fit slim and long. My jackets are usually 42L in fuller cut brands and a 44L in the slimmer cuts. The 44 in the explorer feels snug. I could layer an OCBD under it, but only if it is freezing out. These are serious pieces of knitwear.

I can’t get enough of this record. Even you classic jazz heads might find something to like in this…

If you crop out his face you can find literally 20 other people on tumblr/instagram (involved in clothing sales) that dress exactly the same, you couldn’t tell one apart from the other. How is that stylish? And its not dressed the same in the sense that they are all wearing odd jacket or suit fits but where every detail is exactly the same, the cuts are exactly the same (no regard for body types), even some of the same patterns. I mean, come on.

Read this observation. It’s a good one.

An invisible pocket square is better than plain white linen and plain white linen is better than anything else. I don’t know why it is that a little scrap of cloth in your breast pocket attracts so much attention but it does.

I know this is “controversial,” but the majority of us don’t work as a haberdasher or in the biz. If you get the other elements right, you don’t need a loud square to make sure everyone knows how well dressed you are.

Think of it this way: What do you think of the guy in your office that wears fun socks and goes out of his way to make sure everyone sees them?

B: Do you offer both bespoke and made-to-measure?

That’s the thing - I’m a custom shirt maker. Let’s leave it at that, because the term bespoke annoys me.

B: Why?

Bespoke is an archaic British term, that has no real meaning today. You can make a shirt pattern via computer or by hand and you can get a damn good fit both ways. My old Chinese guys who sew for me, make collar patterns only, for the rest they just start penciling the pattern on to the fabric. They don’t even make patterns unless I ask them to.
