Canali | A Well-Dressed Man Defined

Tis a harsh truth but it must be said – If you don’t know Canali, then you probably don’t know much about menswear. It is perhaps not as flashy as other Italian labels, but the essence of great style is neither flamboyant, nor does it demand the immediate attention of a room. Superlative style instead...

Gods and Kings: The Rise and Fall of Alexander McQueen and John Galliano

Sex. Drugs. Scissors. Alexander McQueen and John Galliano. Their names are often casually spoken with a familiarity generally reserved for a loved one. You might even be wearing an article of clothing that bears the imprint of one or the other as you read this.  But what do you know of the men behind the...

Men in Black | Best of Menswear Fall/Winter 2015

Some say call it too somber while others call it downright funereal but I believe there’s something extremely elegant about wearing head-to-toe black.

For Spring/ Summer 2015, skinny and fitted is no longer the only message for men as voluminous ensembles, long, layered shirts and loose (even pleated) pants return to favor, at least to some degree.

I was first introduced to work of Marc Marmel by Gay L. Harwin, who is in addition to being one of the most influential attorneys in Los Angeles, also one of the chicest women I know. Over lunch one day, I took a particular liking to her luxuriously worn Herman bag and asked about its...
