Gieves & Hawkes is coming across the pond and into our own backyard. That’s right! Over 200 years (243 to be exact) of Bespoke goodness is about to be on our shores. Not only is it one of the oldest Savile Row tailors, it is also tailor to the Royals!
The thing I really love about this company is that even though they are almost as old as the history of the Bespoked suit, they also have a very modern and contemporary approach (now thanks to their new CCO, Jason Basmajian), there is much less stuffiness here than one might expect.
Bergdorf Goodman will be the brand’s exclusive retailer (looks like a trip to New York.) They will offer off-the-rack suits, separates, outerwear and offer bespoke and made-to-measure services.
Here’s what we have to look forward to:

…yeah, it has been a minute, but as in fashion, lets not waste time trying reconstruct what went before, let’s get onto what is happening now…shall we! :)
Okay, it’s definitely summertime outside. And though the ones of us in the always hot south have had some cooler temperatures, those days are beginning to give way to the real heat.
And of course there is no better style than to look cool when it’s hot, and of course to look great at the pool and beach, every chance you get.
…created by designer JOHN MOORE, got its origins from a Hawaiian tailoring shop, by the same name, from the 40’s that, along with other tailoring, designed custom trunks. Moore took this idea, expanding the brand to include tees, pants and sweaters.

It’s been pouring down rain in my neck of the woods. So much so the ever popular music event ACL got rained out or rather flooded out yesterday.
When the rains come the last thing you ever want is to be without your fabulous raincoat to keep you dry or at least keep you looking good while getting wet. So here are some style ideas and brands to help you on your way to a dandiliciously dry Fall and onward into Winter!

Okay, maybe it’s not yet here and now but it is coming. I mean Labor Day is tomorrow or if you are just waking up and reading this, today. And no you don’t have to put away your whites (shoes or clothes) if you don’t want to but I’m certainly gearing up for wearing something besides shorts and a t-shirt so here are some of my picks for your next shopping spree, as well as some style ideas. Enjoy!
