A comparison of cotton, linen and wool suits

I've begun writing a column for Menswear webzine Mensflair.

Whenever I do these articles I will link to them on this blog. Check out my first post which examines some of the differences between cotton, linen and wool suits.

Carmina Uetam Tassel Loafer

My review of the Carmina braided, tassel loafer in the Uetam last. A gorgeous shoe in a very versatile style.

Custom 'polo' shirt by Luxire

Although I don't usually wear polos, I was inspired by a cool looking shirt on P Johnson Tailor's Tumblr: a Giro Inglese Airtex shirt. The open weave of the shirt gave me a light bulb moment: make a normal shirt with polo material (or alternatively think of it as a polo that buttons all the way down).

When it came to having the shirt made I turned to the usual suspect, especially when it comes to customised items: Luxire. The material I chose was the Navy Pique.

Liverano & Liverano tie review

My review of a patterned, silk burgundy tie I bought from Florentine tailors Liverano & Liverano.

So, would doing a routine of a thousand crunches get you the six pack Christian Bale had when he played Pat Bateman? Not necessarily.
