After 3+Years...First Post Back

It's been a got busy and well this fell to the way-side.

Even though it's been a few years, I'm still "dressing better" and try to do it with quality products that are kind to the wallet. Keep in mind that quality isn't usually cheap but if you look around you may just find a great deal out there. In addition, what may not be considering "cheap" to you may be "cheap" to others. For example a $300 SuitSupply suit is a great price but it may seem expensive to someone who is used to spending $100 on a suit from Macy's. The quality on the SuitSupply is very likely to be much better than any Macy's suit.

A few from the past couple weeks:
Suit: SuitSupply ($100 on eBay+Alterations), Shirt: SuitSupply ($20 eBay), Tie: Conrad Wu ($80)

Suit: Indochino MTM ($350), Shirt: SuitSupply ($39 Outlet), Tie: Facconable Grenadine ($30 eBay)

Suit: Indochino MTM ($350), Shirt: SuitSupply ($39 Outlet), Tie: Conrad Wu (Gift), Square: TieBar ($10)

Suit: SuitSupply ($260 purchased in Milan SuSu Store), Shirt: Michael Andrews Bespoke (Gift), Tie: Conrad Wu ($80), Square: J. Crew Factory ($6)

WDIWT....6/21/14 Class of 2014 Graduation!

Today was the graduation of the 3rd graduating class I've had the pleasure to teach! I wore a navy blue suit and broke out the Carmina Pythons for the occasion. When wearing something bold, in this case the shoes, keep everything else muted.

Suit: Indochino Navy Blue Super 100's Wool via Indochino-$449 part of a 3 piece suit plus alterations covered by Indochino
Shirt: Indochino White Essential L/S French Cuff via Indochino-$79 (I probably wouldn't buy this from them again as their collar isn't wide spread enough)
Tie: The Knottery Navy Blue Grenadine via The Knottery-$45
Shoes: Carmina x Epaulet Python Austerity Brogue MTO via StyleForum-$450

WDIW...Thursday 6/13/14

I intended to wear my navy grenadine tie from the knottery with this particular suit and shirt combination but didn't get a chance too once we heard of delays 2 hour delays to cross the George Washington Bridge. 

This suit is from when SuitSupply had their online outlet open. It was a great steal at $259 especially considering that it is a pattern that I don't have, wide pinstripe. I really should wear it more than I do now.

This is also the maiden voyage for my new ModernTailor shirt, a pink/white pin dot which looks solid from a far.

Suit: SuitSupply Gray/White Wide Pinstripe Napoli via SuitSupply Outlet-$259 plus alterations (letting jacket out, hemming trousers)
Pocket Square: Merona White Cotton via Target-5 for $5
Shirt: ModernTailor Cotton Pink/White Pindot WideSpread Collar via ModernTailor-$55
Socks: J. Crew Dark Pink Cotton via J. Crew-$4
Shoes: Church's Custom Grade Tassel Light Brown Loafers via Adrian-$75
