Lose the Tie?

Aug 21 2018Bespoke, Tips from David Lance

Hey guys, we understand wanting to dress more casually and comfortable at work – (there’s no reason dressing well can’t be comfortable, but that’s for a different day). Today though, we want to talk about how – and when - business and casual clothing can intersect without a major collision. It seems many men work long hours preparing for presentations and meetings, yet it looks like appearance was last on their list.

ATTENTION: The following points about bespoke tailoring are not meant for all men. They’re for those who can truly appreciate the elegance of a bespoke suit as well as the luxury experience that is true to bespoke clothing.

How to Achieve Balance with Neckwear

Jul 07 2016Bespoke

For men who understand the subtleties of being well-dressed, looking great is all about balancing your look. Certain details and measurements of your outfit should be directly proportionate to the silhouette of the overall outfit you’ve chosen to wear. For example, the breadth of your shoulder line will help to determine the width of your suit’s lapel, and the size of your pocket flap will be echoed in the girth of your pant leg dimensions.

When it comes to neckwear, balance—both in color and dimensions—helps to create that wow factor that helps you close the deal, land the account, or in other words, win. This keeps you memorable in the minds of the most powerful people in the room.

May 18 2016Bespoke

Many men hear the word “bespoke” and instantly think of suits made for a specific person. But bespoke is not about the clothing itself—it’s about the process.

When you decide its time, and you opt for bespoke, you’re not just purchasing garments. You’re actually beginning a process where we can author the story of how you’re sartorially perceived. Bespoke is an ongoing, personalized experience that will wow you—but do it to you quietly—every time you step out the door.
