Bold statement shirts aren’t for every guy. We know. We proudly sell Robert Graham, but we also understand the terrified look on a guy’s face when he sees contrasting paisley and stripes on a dress shirt. It’s not that these men are boring, though. They just prefer a more measured approach to statement pieces. So for these guys, we suggest VK Nagrani socks.
Shinola is a Timely Tribute American Manufacturing
We’ve blogged a lot about the beauty of Shinola watches, but there’s more to why we love these timepieces, and it has nothing to do with aesthetics.
Shinola makes all of their watches right here in the U.S., and the company is a vocal proponent of American-made goods. Shinola deliberately chose Detroit for their operations, as homage to the city’s legacy as a once-vibrant hub for American manufacturing, and in hopes of infusing life back into the economically ailing city.
Guys, warm weather is here in Shorewood, Wisc., so you’re likely doing one of two things with your face right about now. One, you’re letting the beard fly because hey, it’s nearly summer; or two, you’re keeping your skin squeaky clean for added heat relief.
The key to pulling off a bold fashion statement is degree—too much flair can turn you into a clown, but just enough will make you look like a sartorial ace. There are a lot of ways to achieve this balance, but one of the easiest is to sport statement socks, and we especially recommend VK Nagrani, a line of luxury hosiery for men.
In case you missed our older post on Shinola watches, and because these puppies are really hot right now, we thought we’d blog again about the Detroit-made watches that make telling time feel like an indulgence. You’ll happily roll up your sleeves for one of these bad boys.
A belt has the very important job of holding up your pants, so you need to wear a good one. We recommend W. Kleinberg, a Georgia-based leather goods manufacturer who we absolutely trust to keep our britches in place. All of their belts are well-made, will last a lifetime, and ooze sophisticated.
We’ve been telling you all about fine dress shirts lately, so it’s fitting that now we talk about the accessory that looks best with your fine shirt’s cuff: a luxury watch. Shinola, a Detroit-based company, is presently our favorite line of exquisite watches, and we think you’ll agree.
What do hot cakes and Tateossian bracelets have in common?
They are selling like crazy!
OK, fine, fine. Please excuse our bad joke. But it's true that Tateossian bracelets are the hottest men's accessory right now. So hot, in fact, that we can barely keep them in stock.
Looking for last minute Christmas gift? Give him a W. Kleinberg, a luxury leather belt made from the finest leathers tanned in Europe and constructed with expert craftsmanship right here in the U.S.
Not only it is a thoughtful, high-quality gift, but it is also one that will last. W. Kleinberg belts are known for lasting, and looking good, for years after you buy them. As we’ve said before, they take years to wear in and a lifetime to wear out.
Most men balk at the thought of wearing anything remotely considered “jewelry,” but a new trend is emerging, and it seems to suggests men are getting more comfortable with adornments beyond cufflinks. Braided leather bracelets by Tateossian are cropping up more often on the wrists of men around the world, including those of the gentlemen right here in Shorewood, Wisconsin.
Many great artists, scientists and philosophers were recognized for their prodigious contributions to the world only long after they were dead, e.g. Vincent Van Gogh, Gregor Johann Mendel, Socrates, etc.
I never would of thunk it, but I believe Steve Urkel belongs in this canon.
OK, gentlemen of Shorewood, Wisconsin, let’s get personal and talk about…underwear.
No, not your underwear (what kind of blog do you think this is?), but about why you should own high quality, well-made undergarments.
