Don't be a wrinkled mess in the back of the room #menswear #customtailoring

One thing I think I'm pretty good at is learning about brands that will help MY CLIENTS look and feel like a boss. Fit is one of, if not THE most important part of wardrobing. You can wear a few thousand dollar outfit but if it's ill fitting you will look AND feel like a schlep. If you've been working with me you know that one of the main reasons I tell you to pass on something(in a store or in your closet) is because it doesn't fit well. 

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting with a New York institution in menswear custom tailoring Alan Flusser. I met THE Alan Flusser and his team of well kept and dressed staff. Sitting at this round table of menswear elite was an honor (and not too mention all the sudden super nerve-wracking) to be in the presence of such knowledge and history. 

From the proper amount of break in a pant leg over your oxford to their unique summer weight- wrinkle resistant linen fabrics they really have a unique space in the over-stuffed menswear custom market. When they told me about the content mix in their fabrics I knew this would be the place I can bring clients for their tailoring needs. 

What is your professional style saying?

"I'm here and I can handle anything!"
"I'm a little late but here. I need a minute to decompress and settle my wrinkled self into the back of the room where no one can see me."

Don't be a mess! Please :) Take a peek at the brand (if you don't already know it) and let me know your thoughts!

How to pick YOUR Hero

I believe that everyone should have statement pieces. I lovingly call them your “HERO” piece. To me - it’s defined by what your ideal style is like tenfold. It’s something that you don’t wear much but when you wear it you style it with classic staples.

Example—> this emerald green tool Rochas skirt. I styled it with a classic button down from zara (btw) and my go-to dolce vita cap toe perforated oxford’s. Obviously, the hero in this look is the skirt. The supporting players are the button down and the shirt. Both neutral, both extremely reasonably priced (the shoes cost all of $20 at Bloomingdales on deep deep discount YEARS ago).


For menswear I always believe in a GREAT piece of outerwear, shoe and pattern. If you wear suits everyday mix up your solid navy with a pop of (insert something you like here) in your tie or pocket square. If you're in tech and like to be casual then a cool sneaker or awesome hoodie with a graphic will do the trick (check out my last post to find your hero sweatshirt ---> ( ) . I can't tell you what your hero because everyone's is different. But I will say this -- never wear multiple hero pieces at once. Stay true to the statement you're making and let the piece speak for itself. 

xx yours in style,
