Brought to you by the men of “A Suit That Fits”, we introduce to you the next big thing in suit customization. “Load Up Your Lining”, a genius concept where clients are able to load pictures, from anywhere (internet, photo libraries, etc.,) to tailors who are then able to take the image and load it into the lining of your jacket. Currently, the founding duo behind A Suit That Fits and their team of skilled tailors are the only tailors to offer this service. If you would like more information, please click here

Looking to buy not only a watch, but a timepiece like no other? Look no further! The Qlocktwo watch from Biegert & Funk has arrived! This game changing watch separates you from others instantaneously. With its grid of 110 letters it spells the time when it’s stainless steel button is pressed (safe to say numbers are a thing of the past). The stainless steel case comes in either black or brushed steel paired with a leather strap that provides a timeless look when you’re dressed to impress. Besides serving as a great showpiece among friends the Qlocktwo serves as a calendar and has second count technology. Also no worries if English isn’t your strongest of languages, the Qlocktwo is also available in German and French… a true global phenomenom. TTG

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

WORSTED WOOL

20121025-212501.jpg

Whether rented, store bought or tailored, all suit labels display a worsted wool number. “Worsted” derived from the English village name “Worsted” indicates the number of times the wool has been twisted. The lower the number, the more durable, heavy and inexpensive the suit. The higher the number, the more lighter, softer and costly the suit. So for your next special occasion be sure to choose a suit that has a number of 140 and above, to look and feel your absolute best and leave the “durable suits” (100’s-120’s) to bear the hardships of everyday life… TTG

STAY TUNED

If you’ve ever bought a suit or gotten one tailored, then you may have seen numbers on the labels of them. You have no idea what it means? Not after my next post… TTG

LEATHER GLOVES

Having to ruin an outfit with bulky knitted gloves is not an option this winter. ┬áThese fitted leather gloves are a great warm alternative to get your ┬átexting thumbs out of your pockets. Yup, I said texting thumbs, because for those who can’t miss a text, gloves with touch screen sensitive fingertips are available. Ranging from popular color choices such as black and beige to the more exotic oxblood and cranberry (not shown), leather gloves are an important asset to any dapper outfit… TTG
