They're also made by the tailor (or within his small team) and not shipped off to a factory or overseas, adding to the premium pricing.

It's Ridiculous We're Still Shaming Men For Wearing Skinny Jeans

For those of you who grew up in a later era (or, perhaps, haven't fully caught up with the rest of Canadian society since those heady days), let me remind you why critics urged guys to burn their tight denim and labelled men who wore the style as less-than: skinny jeans were feminine, and feminine -- for guys -- means "bad."

Top Style Tips For Men

I usually write about fashion and beauty for women, but what about the guys? Long gone are the days when guys would wear over worn jeans and a grungy t-shirt as their day attire (wasn't that the 90's?...

Getting in Touch With Your Inner (and Outer) Mensch

The average young man today dresses much differently than his counterpart of a century ago. Think "Boardwalk Empire" not "Mad Men." Of course I do not mean to propose that the men of today should dress as they did in the past, but what I am trying to highlight here is a change in the attitudes surrounding dress, and how that relates to self-respect and the respect of others.
