Our Version of Casual Friday

June 30, 2017

About our favorite summer look: We consider the cream gabardine trouser the ultimate summer staple, and a trouser that every gent should have in his wardrobe. Ours are made by Hertling in Brooklyn, New York. Coupled with a crisp white shirt from Forrest Lennard, the look is the cornerstone for the season.

Speaking of Forrest Lennard, notice the perfect roll to the button down collar. We are a stickler for details and everything about these beautiful white shirts is spot on. Woody Appleby, owner and designer, knows white shirts. So do we!

The window pane sport coat is handmade for us by Nikky. Over the years we have developed a loyal following for our natural shoulder clothing, and Nikky gives us a sartorial one-upmanship with their beautiful fabrications from Italy.

For us, the “go to” tie is always the classic knit. Ours are handmade in Italy by the venerable Robert Jensen. Available in 12 colors, the knit tie should be a part of your neckwear arsenal.
The alligator belt remains a staple of good taste and refinement. Made for us in Atlanta, Georgia by W. Kleinberg, our selection of exotic leathers is extremely impressive. Quite simply, this is the finest belt made.

Our tassel loafers (yes, suede in the summer...) are made by Alden. As the maker of the original tassel loafer, you cannot improve on excellence. They have been making shoes since 1884 in Middleborough, Maine, and making for us since our opening in 1981.

To round out our favorite summer look, don’t neglect the pocket square.Ours are all handmade in Rock Hill, South Carolina by R. Hanauer. Randy and Randall Hanauer share our exact sentiments when it comes to wearing this tiny piece of appropriateness – don’t get dressed without one!

It’s time to dress up again...
