Our Beloved Sponsors – Put This In
Put This On is a completely independent menswear blog and we could not have done it without the help of our sponsors. So, twice a month, we want to thank them for their support and keep our readers up to date with our sponsors’ special events.
Suitable fabric is bringing some things out of hibernation as we move to multi-layered weather.
Teton felt fabrics are made to their measure Available in both modern and traditional striped colors, such as pine green and glossy gray or berry red and navy blue. Like all fabric-fit shirts, you can order these in a stock-fit or tailor-made pattern based on your body measurements or the measurement of your best-fitting shirt. your. We recommend a more casual configuration for their sweatshirts, such as round chest pockets, soft felt front, and True Fabric Soft Down button-down collar style. You can always order a sample of most of their fabrics. The watch models only cost $1, but the money goes to the store’s credit, so if you order a shirt, the watch pattern is made for free.
Cortina true vest is a lightweight layered piece for the seasons at the shoulder (the ones in between as we transition from warm weather to cold weather). This style has been a company staple for several years, as it goes well with any lightweight shirt or sweater. They, available in a variety of colors and textures, can be used to add visual appeal to any basic fall outfit while protecting you from the elements.
Ledbury recently reintroduced two of their most popular shirts. The first is theirs Check Khal, features a light blue base with autumnal teal and orange checks. Due to the light blue base, it can be paired with anything — a navy blue sports jacket, brown tweed or light sweater in any color. The light blue shirt complements the tailored look, and this particular design features fall textures and colors that especially shine in the fall. Furthermore, Ledbury has a pumpkin colored check called Farwell (picture above). This is a modern interpretation of a classic that falls somewhere between an uber-preppy blue and white gingham check (popular in spring) and a rougher buffalo check (popular in the fall). Use it to accentuate the earthy tones of the tweed or to pair with olive chinos.
One of the interesting things about Ledbury’s shirts is the placement of their second button. They put it a little lower so that the v-shape formed between the top of your collar and your tightly buttoned top button isn’t too high when you unbutton the collar. This is one of the characteristics that allows Ledbury shirts to be both chic and casual. As stated in the first Seinfeld episode, the placement of the second button will literally tear or damage a shirt.
This month, Wolves and goats will receive a large fall shipment, which includes a wide range of bamboo-Sonora items ranging from light tees to medium light jackets. This unique blend has been used extensively as part of the company’s efforts to produce more eco-friendly products. Bamboo has a lower environmental impact than cotton because it requires no chemicals or irrigation systems — just a little sunshine and rain will keep it growing above ground, even after the stems have been cut. Wolf vs. Goat also uses bamboo that is harvested in a closed process, which means harmful toxins like carbon disulfide are recovered and recycled instead of being discharged.
On the other hand, Sonora is a synthetic. Invented by DuPont, Sonora is made from an extract from the inedible plant glucose starch (currently, mainly from sugar taken from corn feed). It’s a blend of polyester and nylon – soft, stretchy, fade and stain resistant, and easily dyed for rich and vibrant colors. When combined with bamboo, you get a technical fabric that is both soft and breathable. Bamboo-Sonora regulates your body temperature, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer. Wolf vs. Goat will have a range of items in this magic fabric this month, along with pure cashmere sweaters and cashmere blends.
Socks are relatively cheap these days, with a pack of six pairs from Gold Toes costing around $15. However, these socks are usually made of thicker cotton yarn and are not very comfortable to wear. Dapper Classics On the other hand, socks are comparable to high-end European brands, but because they are made in the United States, you avoid international shipping costs and import fees. These socks are made in a third-generation, family-owned factory in North Carolina that uses 188-needle machines, allowing them to produce smooth, long-lasting knitted socks. The toes are also hand-linked to eliminate the roughness common in lower-end brands.
Solid navy blue, socks are too long calves Can be worn in any suitable outfit. They look better than solid black socks and can be paired with blue, gray, brown, fawn or olive pants. Once you get a few pairs – say, six or so – you may want to branch out. Sophisticated, thoughtful designs such as Dapper Classics Pin Dots, Herring, grenadeand bird’s eye can be an elegant way to add visual interest to an outfit. Again, the navy goes with everything. But for variety, consider choosing socks in a color that matches your pants – brown socks with brown pants, brown socks with brown pants, gray socks with gray pants, etc. Matching your socks with pants helps widen the vertical line. on your outfit.
Until the end of this month, if you buy three or more pairs of socks, you can also get a fourth pair of your choice for free.
If you’re just starting to build a collared wardrobe, you can do worse than start with a basic pair of panties. Textured Italian silk adds visual appeal to solid-color sports coats but is also subdued enough to pair with patterned coats. Your next few ties should continue to be basic ties – representative stripes, tie-ups, and maybe a lace-up for casual occasions.
Once you have the basics, consider buying things in more seasonal fabrics. Raw silk and linen are ideal for summer. In the fall and winter months, however, you’ll want things like tweed, cashmere, challis, and most of all, classic quilted coats. Paul at Antiques Chipp once told me that the ancient madman’s chalky hands reminded him of a horse’s wet nose. I always thought that description was charming. Worse ties are useful in winter because they stand in the middle in terms of form. They go with tweed and velvet sports jackets just as well with ugly suits. Chipp’s ties are made in NYC using the same British silk as what you’ll find from top manufacturers, except they cost $70 less.
LuxeSwap Not really selling. They work with consignors around the world to sell high-end menswear on eBay. However, once a year they run a massive promotion in which they sell their best stock on Black Friday. To be sure, these are still ten-day eBay auctions — you log in on Black Friday, browse their selection of premium menswear, and then bid on the ten-day ending auctions after. However, because the stock quality that week was higher than usual, it attracted more people to buy. This, of course, means more money for the shipper.
If you want to start taking action, send your unwanted goods to LuxeSwap soon. They only have 500 vacancies and 100 of them have already been filled. Keep in mind that since this is a big promotion, the items have to be really premium. On the plus side, if you’re willing to accept store credit at No Man Walks Alone or Epaulet, LuxeSwap will lower their fees and either of those stores will add something to the credit. your.
