Running an independent men’s style site is tough, and we’re only able to do what we do thanks to the support of our sponsors. So twice a month, we like to give them a special shoutout, as well as update our readers on our sponsors’ latest happenings.
The Hanger Project has been busy creating one of the largest and most comprehensive men’s style YouTube channels. Much of it is about how to take care of your clothes — often shoes, but also suits, dress shirts, and fine accessories. This past week, they put up a new video on how to minimize the creasing you naturally get in leather shoes (probably the most commonly asked question on men’s style boards). You can watch the video on their channel.
Proper Cloth is known for their made-to-measure dress shirts. With thousands of options for fabrics, including casual ones such as plaid flannels and Japanese indigo, they’re able to deliver almost any kind of button-up to your door, custom tailored to your measurements. And this summer, they’re rolling out their biggest project yet — an online system for custom-fit tailored clothing, including suits, sport coats, and trousers. The program hasn’t been launched yet, but readers can sign up on Proper Cloth’s site for first access.
If you’re looking for some new summer neckwear, Chipp has a wide range of Matka silk ties. For those unfamiliar, Matka is a loose basketweave handwoven from slubby silk yarns. Their unique textures will help dress down a tailored jacket, as well as add a sense of playfulness. As with all of Chipp’s ties, these are made in New York City, but run for an affordable $45 (less than half the price of their competitors). The seasonal weave can be worn with suits and sport coats in linen, cotton, and open-weave tropical wools.
Psst … here’s a heads-up. Dapper Classics is holding an Anniversary sale next week from July 2nd to the 5th. It’s going to be a “spend more, save more” event with discounts of up to 25% — and it’ll apply to the company’s trousers. These are made in NYC by Hertling, one of the more renowned trouser factories in the world, and they come in both slim and classic fits. Pictured above are some of their fall/ winter trousers in Donegal lambswool and Super 120s wool, but for summer, they also have open-weave tropical wool Frescos (normally only available to clients of bespoke tailors), pure linen and linen blends (go for the blend if you’re worried about wrinkles), and more casual brushed cottons (which have been enzyme washed for extra softness).
Luxire has gotten a lot of attention with online style enthusiasts over the years. Being based in Bangalore and having a team of tailors means they can make (and replicate) almost anything. People often send in photos or sample garments, or choose from the dozens of styles offered on Luxire’s website, and have things produced to their measurements. See a pair of trousers with a unique closure on Instagram? Luxire can make it. Have a favorite shirt you want copied, but in a different material? Luxire can make it. Want a safari jacket? Luxire can make that too. You can read a recent review of the company at Permanent Style.
Finally, our thanks to Huckberry. They’re having a sale right now, which includes some United by Blue printed shirts and quick-drying shorts that can be used both in and outside of the pool. They also have minimalist sneakers from Native, including some grey suede retro-styled runners. For comfy plantation-crepe shoes, check out their selection of Chelseas, derbies, and chukka boots from Astorflex. The eco-friendly rubber soles have a cushy, bouncy feel, which lets you wear a slightly dressier style while still feeling comfortable and casual.
