¡Señores!

Me espero todo bien (I hope all is well).

Una pregunta…

Are you taller than 6’4″; or maybe you’re shorter than 5’5″. Whether you’re a gigante or a microgent, one thing you share is that it’s hard to find clothes with el correcto fit.

The same is true for mis grandes amigos y atleticos!! When you’re sizes are beyond the norm shopping can be difícil.

So what do you do when your measurements just aren’t found in the stores?

The obvious answer is get your clothes tailored, to which I wholeheartedly agree. Regardless of your size, your tailor should be as much a part of your wardrobe as your favorite pair of jeans!
Pero, let me offer another opción: Bespoke!

Bespoke is just a fancy word for custom and I want to give you 5 reasons you should treat yourself to bespoke clothing!

1. Stellar Experience 

When you go bespoke you are met with customer service beyond belief. They wine and dine you.

I recently had my first bespoke experience with Knot Standard

and Sons of Savile

Boy was it amazing!!!

Imediamente both companies took an interest in me. They were getting a feel for who I was as we were about to embark on the journey of selecting fabric, getting every inch of me measured, and customizations.

Sons of Savile was particularly interesting because they are an exclusive digital community that caters to your bespoke needs. They have a dope concept that’s really worth checking out. You don’t have to leave su casa to get a dope custom camisa (shirt)! Simply send your measurements in and your shirt will be mailed out to you!

2. One Of A Kind Piece

Custom means just that…CUSTOM. You can design a tailor made piece that reflects your specific estilo. You don’t have to worry about having a piece that looks like any other garment out. The details are what matter. Every unc is hand picked by you! You chose the following:

  • Fabric
  • Thread
  • Buttons
  • Button holes
  • Types of pockets
  • Lining
  • Collars
  • Lapels
  • Waist bands
  • Pleats or flat front
  • Sleeve cuffs
  • Cuff or no cuff in pants
  • Number of buttons
  • Fun personalized details

Hashtag personalizations and impeccable stitching



3. Hand Stitched 

The quality of hand stitched is unsurpassed. There’s a level of care for each detail and each specification that’s put into the garment’s construction. A tailor can see any imperfections or mistakes before the item is finished and correct them immediately.

4. Premium Fabric

Style is about fit and fabric! Cuando going to a bespoke tailor the offerings of fabric are endless. They are rich in

  • Texture
  • Weight
  • Breathability
  • Color
  • Durability
  • Patterns/design

Most times the mills that produce the fabrics are European and have been in business for decades or longer. They know the tricks of the trade to produce el mejor (the best) fabric available.

El nuemero uno benefit of such quality fabrics is that it will last. You won’t have to worry about pilling.

5. Perfect Fit
I say again, style is about fabric and FIT! When you compra (buy) a bespoke item, it is crafted specifically for you.

A series of intricate measurements are taken to ensure that the fit is perfecto. Movement and comfort are taken into consideration, but an impeccable fit is the ultimate objectivo!

Regardless of the type of movement, bespoke items are made to move with you! Wherever su vida takes you will be prepared in the most dapper of ways when dressed in bespoke.
So go ahead and invest in yourself. You won’t be disappointed! The experience will make you jump for joy!

Couture Couples

Señores,

Buenos Dias/Tardes/Noches!

Im my humlbe opinion, when in relationships, each person is una representación of each other. En las areas importante, each individual should “match” the other. Match in goals…match in family values…match in belief systems…and in my opinion match in style.

 

How many times have you seen a couple and thought to yourself “how’d he get her” or “she doesn’t even match him.” My wife and I are firm believers in “Don’t you embarrass me!” Not in actions, words, or appearance. As a result, we make a fuerte effort to represent each other aesthetically as best as we can. Now we don’t go overboard – I don’t wear a tux to Walmart and she doesn’t put on 4 inch stilettos to pump gasolina  – but we always try to look nice. You never know who’s watchin.

This piece is a celebration of those couples that have the same modus operandi.

 

 

We try to represent each other at all times! #couturecouple

Señores,

Weddings are great…I freaking LOVED mine! Traditionally, men don’t have (nor want for that matter) any say-so in the event. Venue is picked by ella…dress is picked by ella…even the tux is ultimatley picked by ella!
Ohhhh, but today is a new day! Señores, let’s take back the reigns of our manhood…lets put our foot down and take command of a day that is just as much about us as it is her. She can have the dress! She can have the venue, menu, cake, and los colores.
BUT…
She. Can’t. Have. The. Tux! It’s ours!!
Now fellas, be smart…since you’re saying “I Do”, you DO want to look nice. Now when searching for ideas, check some of these out!

Señores!

I don’t know about you, but I vehemently (you like that word, huh) dislike copy cats. You know those carbon copies…individuals that try to be someone else’s clone. That just freaking URKS me!

During this journey through fashion, I’ve seen muchas personas fall by the wayside, getting lost in the ruin of ineptitude and it pains my heart.

To make it in this art form (not that I have – but be on the lookout) innovation, creativity, and a flare for risk is una necesidad!

For a 6'4" athletic guy, this is a risk...

Are these the most daring outfits…by no means. BUT, consider my height, build, and the misconceptions of a “jock” (of which I am an extreme one) – it becomes very daring!!!
