'By Invitation Only'

While April is customarily far from what we think of as the traditional black tie season, there’s nonetheless much to celebrate. Mad Men - the television phenomenon that revolutionized cable dramas - is back for one final season and Eidos Napoli has just begun dropping at select retailers throughout the US. So without further ado, here’s some black tie porn for y’all that should tide you over until later in the year when tuxedos are more firmly in the front of our minds.

  • Eidos Napoli blackwatch dinner jacket - the ‘Tipo’ DB embodies the Eidos ethos to design. Beautiful, well made and eye catching in an elegant and muted sort of way it sums up why tredicielupo is designing some of the best tailored clothing today.

  • Hackett tuxedo trousers - made in wool and mohair, these trousers provide a nice textural contrast to the Eidos dinner jacket. Also, they’re made beltless and with side tabs which is - in my opinion - the ideal way to wear tuxedo trou.

  • Kamakura ‘300 Club’ spread collar- still a relatively well kept secret, Kamakura have upped the ante with their premiere shirt offerings. Made with 4 ply Xinjiang cotton in a lightweight regular fit construction, this goes well with bow and neck ties.

  • Charvet ribbed bow tie - buy self tie, period.

  • Matteo velvet slippers - Charles Phillip has been making his patented slippers in Shanghai for nearly half a decade and they’re a favorite of mine. Much less expensive than Stubbs & Wooton they nonetheless have loads of character and are reinforced for additional comfort.

Black tie good for all Australian seasons…

Product Review: Warby Parker Eyeglasses and Sunglasses

One of the common frustrations in my day-to-day life is the fact that I have bad eyes. They are weak in the sun, dry at night, and aren’t particularly good at seeing things that are close by or far away. It’s been a constant source of annoyance over the years, but I’ve quickly found that the best way to manage them is to take good care of them. Of course, anyone with a prescription knows the out-of-control cost of glasses these days; as you can probably imagine, that’s where Warby Parker comes into play.

Product In Review: Chester Mox iPad mini case

I think its fair to say that a large number of people (that is increasing all the time) own some form of tablet device. A miniaturized computer made to make your life easier, one of the tablet’s many great virtues is its aesthetic appeal. They’re usually slim, small and lightweight making them a valuable addition to any person’s day-to-day luggage. While you could carry such a functional device in a canvas or leave it naked at the bottom of your bag, as with most other things we #menswear geeks enjoy sprucing it up a little. Hardly an essential by any definition, this beautiful iPad case is the culmination of two month’s dialogue between me and LA leather-maker Chester Mox, suffice to say it met my expectations and then some.

O & S Camp Hibiscus printed shirt

This the type of shit Jules Winnfield would wear on a Saturday hit.

The black all over Hawaiian print is winning me over, chiefly thanks to a smart variation in its size/scale and the use of negative space in the torso and arms of the shirt. What we have here is a - dare I say it - ‘tasteful’ Hawaiian number. 

Available at Mr Porter

Handsome Dark Stranger - Armani & The American Gigolo

The business of #menswear (and indeed fashion) can often be extremely immanent. What I mean by this is that it is beholden only to its ‘insiders’, regarded with nearly religious zeal by a small group of individuals privy (and interested) to its inner workings. It is therefore no small matter when society-at-large acknowledges a designer and embraces them into the collective consciousness of the public. Few such names register as widely as Giorgio Armani: once a small time window dresser at La Rinascente, he’d go on to found a business empire that would dominate the socio-economic landscape of the 1980’s. Chances were back then, that if you meant business (or indeed if you were THE business) you wore Armani.
