Dwyane Wade and my Benjamin Daedfyshe eureka moment

Picture it. Cambridge, Ontario. It was the night of my wedding, on an unusually warm fall night. One of my groomsmen after spending the day in an uncomfortable pair of dress shoes decided he is now ready to cut a rug and slips on a pair of sneakers. I wished I had thought of it. It … Continue reading

My Ledbury shirts are here!

Nothing beats the excitement of checking the mail and finding a package addressed to you. And when that package contains three Ledbury shirts, it makes it that much sweeter. It’s no secret that I love Ledbury and it’s no secret why… the collars make the shirt. I may be over stating this, but the collar on a … Continue reading

For some reason I took it as a challenge…

I got this comment from my buddy Pat on the Abercrombie post last week. “I find Old Navy has a vast selection of XXL and XXXL, but what they have in quantity, I must admit they lack in quality. It’s hard to dress to impress if you’re buying a garbage bag full of clothes for $60.00!” … Continue reading

Abercrombie doesn’t make clothes for husky adult men. This is why I blog.

I read an article recently about the explosion of men’s style blogs and emergence of the male clothing shopper. Men’s fashion is a booming business. It’s become cool for men to pay attention to how they look. It makes sense, these style blogs allow us to window shop from the comfort of our own home or … Continue reading

In my continuing search for the end of the internet I found the picture below. I have another post prepared that I’ll publish later today. But I wanted to share this guide and it didn’t really fit with today’s post. So here it is, a great guide to a classic everyday suit cut, the ‘English … Continue reading

A Revitalized You | Reviving Your Image

I watched an interesting HBO documentary with my wife the other day, called Hard Times: Lost on Long Island. The movie was about unemployment, particularly long-term unemployment in America.
