Alright Gentlemen, I’ll keep this one short. “A great tailor is like a great personal trainer – they tailor that suit to your natural physique.”  Jidenna Truer words were never spoken. Call us when your ready.

Gentlemen, Brooks here again. Herman Melville once penned; “Stripped of the cunning artifices of the tailor, and standing forth in the garb of Eden – what a sorry set of round shouldered, spindle shanked, crane-necked varlets would civilized men appear!” In the era of Moby Dick, poor diet and a host of other maladies created physical deformities in even wealthy men. Today some of us still need the help of a good tailor to minimize certain physical attributes. But even if you don’t, a competent tailor can help you make the right decisions to that your new suit presents you in the best possible light.

Hey Guys… Brooks here again. So here’s a question I get a lot. Why does a man need a suit? One word answer: RESPECT. Respect for the other guy or gal or guys and gals. Respect at: weddings, graduations, church, special awards ceremonies, job interviews, work, special dates with your girl, when you want to project authority, and sadly funerals. The list goes on and on. A suit shows others that you respect them and the occasion. Owning and wearing  a suit, from time to time, indicates that you are prepared to put your best foot forward at a moments notice. It is a silent way of letting others know that you know how important it is to make a good impression when the occasion warrants a “little higher bar” in personal grooming. RESPECT, letting others “know” that you “know” without saying a word.

Hey Guys, Brooks here again… If you ask a knowledgeable tailor how much a bespoke suit costs, it’s a little bit like asking a jeweler the price of a diamond. Many factors affect the price of a hand made suit. The actual labor required is a big component of the price. Skilled tailors will spend upwards of twenty man hours in the process of measuring, cutting, sewing and most importantly, repeatedly pressing to insure the finished suit fits perfectly. This is after the pattern maker has taken the measurement provided by the fitter and created a one of a kind pattern that belongs to the individual client. Like fine diamonds, the fabric used in tailoring the suit can run from a few dollars a yard to many hundreds of dollars a yard. The average sized man requires between 4 and 5 yards of fabric for a coat and pant. The secret is to select fabric that is appropriate for the type of service you expect from the garment. How often will you wear it? What are the occasions you need it for? A good clothier will help you make the right selection. So, it comes down to this. The burning […]

Hey Guys, Brooks here again… Wide, narrow, skinny, broad? What’s the correct necktie shape? There’s no right or wrong tie width. All shapes have enjoyed some degree of success over the years. The real way to decide what is right is to look at the total impression. The shirt collar and lapel width of the jacket play a big part in the size. Wide coat lapels, wide necktie. Narrow coal lapels, narrow necktie. As a practical matter, the tie width that has stood the test of time is between, 2 3/4″ and 3 3/4″ at the tip. This is consistent with the coat lapel width which stands as one of the timeless looks.
