the pliqo bag.

So a couple years ago Delta Airlines stole my favorite suit. I had very recently purchased, and had tailored, a brand new italian wool, charcoal with light grey windowpane two-button suit. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever owned. Ever. It was like looking into the face of an angel. 

I gave it to the flight attendant to hang in the closet during the flight. Then, Delta failed to return it to me when I left the plane, and when I contacted customer support, they were "unable to locate it". So that was super cool. Like, really cool. Like, so cool I went into a deep depression and became a recluse for the next 12 years. 

Luckily, I've come up with the perfect solution for this type of problem: don't freaking trust an airline with anything you care about. The Pliqo suit bag is the tangible version of that solution.

Finally, a suit bag that actually folds without wrinkling the living hell out of your suit. And so small, you can actually keep it with you, whether as a shoulder bag, strapped to your carry on, or just in your normal luggage.

I've already put in my order, but if my recommendation isn't enough to sell you, check out their kickstarter video and see for yourself. You can thank me later.

Has anyone else ever had a similar experience on an airline, or am I just the most unlucky human?

abc's of men's fashion - 62.

french cuff

French cuffs are twice as long as regular cuffs, and then folded back on themselves and closed with cuff links. 

As they are more formal attire, French cuffs should not be worn every day, unless you’re a mob boss or the CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Generally speaking, French cuffs should only be worn with suit jackets. If you’ve got that certain je ne sais qois about you and know how to wear them without overpowering your outfit, then you might be able to pull off French cuffs with a blazer or a sport coat, but in most situations, it’s best to keep them formal and stick to the suit jacket.

    abc's of men's fashion 60.

    bespoke.

    Bespoke is an adjective for anything commissioned to a particular specification. It may be altered or tailored to the customs, tastes, or usage of an individual purchaser.

    A bespoke suit is custom-made, instead of customized from an existing pattern. An individual pattern is cut based on the client’s specific measurements and sewn by hand using fabric that is also hand-selected by the client and fitted to his body. There was a time when all men’s suits were bespoke and men would visit their tailor to be measured, be advised on fabric, style, dressing left or right. The tailor knew all his clients and used to keep patterns for future visits. The world of bespoke creates an intimate relationship between tailor and client. It takes 6 to 8 weeks for the suit to be ready.

    outdoor style garb.

    Prepping for my Yosemite trip has me obsessed with outdoor style right now--even mixed into everyday attire. Check out this Style Garb layout from Uncrate that emphasizes my point.

    RRL Barringer Leather Jacket ($1,900). 
    Simon Miller Sweatshirt ($185). 
    Journal Standard Work Shirt ($126). 
    Raleigh Denim Alexander Jeans ($285). 
    Danner Stumptown Mountain Light Boot ($360). 
    Sneerwell Casket Flask ($65). 
    Biltwell Gasolina Reserve Gas Tank ($20). 
    Salt Optics Leif Sunglasses ($475).
    Iron & Air 15/16 Bundle Pack ($15).
    1970'S Enicar Sherpa Guide 600 Watch ($1,150).
    Cordero Motorcycle Gloves ($45).


    Now, for my purposes, I'd be swapping the flask for a pocket knife or multitool, and the leather jacket for something waterproof or a down jacket, but you get the idea. 

    Style is all about combining the things you love, however different they may be.

    covered in leather.

    the leather jacket should be a staple in every well-dressed man's closet. And if you want a quality leather jacket that fits well and follows current fashion trends, you can't beat the england-based allsaints.

    I'll warn you ahead of time: a quality, authentic leather jacket is not going to be cheap, but you get what you pay for.

    allsaints fits pretty true to size, so you can feel safe buying online. That being said, if you're going to be dropping that kind of cash, it makes sense to find a store and try it on first. Your call.

    rotate your kicks.

    If you can help it, don't wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row. In order to fully dry out your shoes after use, you should be rotating with at least one other pair. This will greatly increase the lifespan of your shoes. It's also an excellent excuse to buy another pair. 


    This, should be something you do in addition to your normal shoe care routine (i.e. shoe trees, polish, etc).
