This fairly new company is making quite a splash in the fashion world. Solid and Striped launched just two years ago in 2012, and since then has gotten quite a following. Isaac Ross, the founder, came up with the idea when spying on his friend’s father at a Hampton’s pool party. The gent was wearing a wonderfully classy pair of blue and white striped swim trunks from Club 55. Meanwhile all the young folk were looking like clowns in their flashy swim shorts. It was then that Mr. Ross knew there was a hole in the market that he could fill. Thus, we present to you, the “elegant simplicity” of Solid and Striped.
Who doesn’t like watching the World Cup? Every four years, when this event comes around, we all gather to support our country and our team. The thrill is infectious.

The question then becomes – how do you support your team while still looking elegant for the work place?

We have come around to that sunny, lively time of year again, summer. It is hotter than anyone ever wants it to be. Unlike your younger years, you no longer have the option to cool off at the pool or beach on a daily basis. Those three-month of relaxation summer use to provide us are gone, so we need to find a new way to bring a little ease into our everyday lives.
In terms of shoes, Allen Edmonds makes some of the best men’s dress shoes around. Founded in 1922, this shoe manufacturing company has kept their factories in the United States, resisting the temptation to move operations overseas.

Seeing as Father Day is coming up, Savile Row Society wants to give a little shout to all the Dads out there. Although they mean the world to us and do so much for us, there is no denying their declining fashion sense. It is understandable that once you start to build a career and a family, style often gets put on the backburner, but things have gone too far. Men start wearing their famous Dad pants making you, their kids, embarrassed to be seen with them. It’s likely that your dad has a bit sprucing up to do.
