How you are dressed says a lot about yourself, so we are encouraging people to dress on purpose. Your apparel can effect your mindset and how other people perceive you. No matter the occasion, make sure you put a measure of thought into what you are wearing. It really does make a difference.
If you are looking for great ideas on how to mix and match your existing wardrobe, look no further.

Ever feel unsure what to wear to an event? The guys over at tsbmen.com have put together an excellent style guide. You can filter by occasion, weather or piece you are building around.
This guide is great if you are a little tired of wearing the same combinations. Take a look and see what new things you can do with your current wardrobe!
All our ties are designed for the four in hand knot. If you are not using this method of tying your necktie, you must familiarize yourself with it! The four in hand is the simplest knot to tie and is the most fashionable.
The end result is a little asymmetric, which is perfect. Not too starchy, a little askew showing there is no chance you are wearing a clip on :)
Here is one of our clients wearing the green cotton plaid bow. Love how it is paired with a denim shirt!
As fashion trends become more casual and relaxed it is cool to see people mix accessories into their outfits. A suit is no longer required to wear a tie or any other accessory for that matter.
One of our goals is to keep the vintage lineup constantly changing. Here is one of our vintage pieces that sold out before they made it to the web site. Stay tuned for "new" vintage products.

We are working to get the site officially launched December 1st.
There will be about 25 different products available at launch.
Here's a behind the scenes image of the prep work.
After several trial runs, we have developed a finished product silk dupioni tie. Interestingly dupioni is created when two different silk worms spin their cocoons too close together. The tangled silk creates the texture you will see in this fabric.
We love this tie because a black tie often defines a formal look. However, with this tie you get the formal look, but with the funkiness of a dramatic texture.
It's been a lot of work getting this website launched! Thank you to everyone who has supported us thus far.
We shot these pictures back in May (2012) and had a lot of fun doing them! Thank you to Isaac, Guy and Nic.
