THE BASICS
 

THE SUIT

The tailored jacket with matching trousers remains the uniform of official power.

SHIRTINGS

Custom made dress shirts should yield a collar-set that distinguishes your face and cuff-fit that dresses your hands. 

NECKWEAR

A necktie’s motif, or pattern, expresses the poetry, the sense of whimsy, the psychology of the individual wearer.

 

FOOTWEAR

Like most apparel, a man’s footwear should be an extension of his personal style. 

BELTS

Generally, dress belts should be of an equal or darker shade than the suit.

BRACES

The experienced dresser will use the brace’s color or pattern to frame the ensemble’s composition.

 

POCKET SQUARES

Like a good haircut, the best-folded squares are those that do not draw attention to themselves.

THE ODD JACKET

The blazer remains the most versatile single tailored garment in a man's wardrobe.

FORMALWEAR

The custom made tuxedo represents the highest expression of tailoring art and sartorial know-how.
