Perhaps functioning buttonholes aren’t all they are cracked up to be… Here’s why.
Indochino is in Philadelphia until May 27. Stop by Monday the 20th, as I will be offering guidance and advice on the Indochino process and men’s style in general.
Honoring Lilly (day 4/Thursday): suit (MyTailor), shirt (Luxire), pocket square (Lilly Pulitzer), suspenders (made of Lilly Pulitzer Fabric), shoes (J. Fitzpatrick). Breaking out the fresco suit for the first time this season, nothing beats it in warm weather.
I was approached last summer by the good people at Knot Standard, until then an unknown name by me in the ever growing made to measure/custom marketplace. A few things immediately caught my attention. First, they claimed to be a bespoke operation in that they could accommodate any request yet still keep their price point under $1,000 (more on that later, obviously). Second, that Knot Standard was based in Dubai. So we had a nice chat and in short order agreed upon doing a review of the company’s suits and shirts.
