If you've been a Cult follower for awhile, you know a couple things about me already:


  1. I dig menswear
  2. I'm all about that bargain, 'bout that bargain, no ripoffs


So when our friends at Simply Skinny Ties offered to send us a couple of their pieces to try out, I was pumped. A relatively new company out of Utah, Simply Skinny aims "To provide each of [their] customers with a line of unique, high quality neckties for a simple price." Music to my ears.

There are currently about nine styles to choose from with more on the way. And at a price point of $25, you really can't go wrong. Unless you don't own $25 dollars, in which case you should maybe focus on getting a job before you start collecting ties. Priorities, man.

Each tie measures 2.5 inches at it's widest point, and the current styles are made of either 100% cotton or 100% wool. Generally, I would recommend a silk tie when pairing with a suit for more formal occasions, but you would exect to pay at least 3-4 times as much for a high-quality silk tie, which is not fun. That being said, These ties are manufactured well and they look good, and when coordinated correctly, can work in both casual and formal settings. 

I highly recommend stopping by the Simply Skinny Ties website and picking up a couple ties to add to your collection and really make your style stand out. For $25, it'll be the best tie-based decision you make.


disciplines of dressing by art comes first.

the guys from art comes first bring us a short film series that show their sartorial standards and their style. 

i guarantee you’ve seen these guys before whether you knew who they were or not. 

art comes first is made of Same Lambert and Shaka Maidoh. They are designers and style icons in the men’s fashion scene that know how to dress and kill it on the reg.

this video series lets us into their world of fashion and sheds some light on what drives these designers to do what they do.

each short focuses on a different aspect of the wardrobe and is short and sweet.

i’ve dropped episode one into the post, but be sure to check out the rest of the videos here.

knit picky.

lately i've been really into knit ties. i've been diggin' the look that they have and i really like how the texture of a knit tie looks with the rest of the outfit. mostly i like to change it up and this is one to do just that without it looking weird, stupid or like you're trying too hard. and it’s totally a detail thing, i’m all about details. there are generally two types of knit ties out there, silk and wool. i'm sure there are other material options out there, but these two are the most common and are going to be what you see most of. if you don't have any knit ties you should look into picking a few up. i suggest you snag them cheap over at the tie bar. they start at 15 bucks and you won't be out that much if you aren't into it, but i doubt that will be the case. check out knits my friends, add some dimension and depth to your wardrobe.

style: work week.

It’s time to put on your big boy pants and step into the office for the week. And if you're going, ya might as well look good, right? Exactly. Whether you suit up or keep it casual, you’ve gotta look good at work: look like a professional. I’m sorry, but if you look like a bum, or a slob, no one will be shaking your hand or be trying to make deals with you. You’ll be taken seriously if you dress well, and more importantly, you'll attract the ladies. Most men in the office aren’t stylish or young like you, so it’s a no brainer to use this to your advantage.

We’ve got three style guides for you, two for the office and one for after hours. Let’s be honest, all work and no play makes Jack an idiot. Do yourself a favor and get out and party once in awhile. You can thank us later. If you haven’t already, get started on your fall and winter gear and shoes by checking out House of Fraser. They’ve got it all and can meet all your office and social fashion needs. The House has got your back, literally. Don’t wait, head over to House of Fraser now and stock up this season.
