Put This On’s “Rudiments” correspondent, Dave Hill, isn’t just a sartorial instructor. He’s also a rock and roll God. Dave and his band Valley Lodge have a new single out - Kiss Me, I’m Drunk - and above is the video, which also features Dave’s hilarious friend Rich Fulcher, who you might know from The Mighty Boosh. Besides all that, it’s just a super-fun slice of rock.

Ready to blast off into your weekend?

Our Rudiments correspondent Dave Hill isn’t just a handsome international playboy and beloved comedian. He’s also the frontman of the excellent rock band Valley Lodge.

We don’t want to give anything away, but suffice it to say that not only is the video for their new single “Go” (which premiered today at Spin) rocking and exciting, it also has a hilarious surprise. Watch closely.

Our Rudiments host Dave Hill has a new single with his band Valley Lodge. It’s called Kiss Me, I’m Drunk.

Our field correspondent Dave Hill has a new publicity still. Thought I’d share it with you. Because it’s pretty great.
If you can’t get enough of Dave on Put This On, be sure to check out his show The Dave Hill Podcasting Incident. Pretty soon, you too will be qualified to wear chain-mail trousers.

Our friend and beloved correspondent Dave Hill takes on New York’s restaurants for Grub Street. He’s got some great suggestions for places to go on Valentine’s Day. And, uhm, stuff to do if you don’t have a date. Like, uhm, somewhat NSFW stuff.

Just watch it it’s so great.

If you watched the debate last night, you know it can be tough to get straight talk from political candidates. That’s why our friend and Rudiments host Dave Hill convened his own debate, at his house, and moderated it himself.

Elegance: Put This On Season Two, Episode Five

Put This On, a web series about dressing like a grownup, visits Milan, a world fashion capital.

In this episode, our director Benjamin Ahr Harrison visits Biella, north of the city, to talk with Luciano Barbera. Barbera isn’t just one of the world’s most elegant men, he’s also the leader of Carlo Barbera, one of the finest fabric mills in existence.

For our PTO Place segment, we talk with the owner of G. Lorenzi. It started as a cutlery shop, and has become a spectacular tribute to the finest small accessories imaginable. It’s home to a visually stunning spectrum of knives, scissors, shaving goods, toothbrushes, combs, shoehorns and other tiny necessities.

In PTO Man, we visit Salvatore Battello, the elegant owner of W-D Man. Before he started his line, he ran one of the last companies in the world that worked with shagreen - the beautiful skin of sharks and rays. Battello tells us about his passion for vintage fabric, and his definition of elegance.

Plus Jesse answers the question “what color shoes go with the suit?” and Dave Hill offers a rudiment on the topic of socks.

This is the fifth episode in our six-episode second season. In this season, we visit the three greatest men’s style cities in the world, as chosen by our readers - New York, Milan and London.

Dave Hill offers thoughts on when you should and should not wear sports sunglasses.

Put This On Season Two, Episode 3: (New) Traditions

Put This On, a web series about dressing like a grownup, visits London, where we examine how traditions are being reinvented in the birthplace of classic menswear.

We go to Savile Row, where we meet up with a historical guide to talk about the history of the world’s oldest tailoring street. We also chat with the tailor Richard Anderson about what’s special about The Row. Patrick Grant, the owner and designer of Norton & Sons, talks about how Savile Row can become a vital part of the international fashion world again.

Just off Savile Row, we go to the basement showroom of W. Bill, the world’s most legendary tweed merchant. Ray Hammet, who’s worked at W. Bill for decades, shows us around the stacks of wooly majesty.

In our PTO: Man segment, we talk with Ian Bruce, painter and member of the band The Correspondents, about re-imagining the SoHo dandy for the 21st century. He takes us through London’s red light district, and tells us why he doesn’t want to look like a painter at the end of a long day of painting.

We visit the tie factory owned and operated by Drake’s of London to learn how a high-quality tie is made, from fabric to finished product. Then we buy one to send to a supporter of the show.

Plus Dave Hill tells where sport sunglasses are and are not appropriate, in Rudiments.

This is the third episode in our six-episode second season. In this season, we visit the three greatest men’s style cities in the world, as chosen by our readers - New York, Milan and London.
