NEW designer pieces now in the shop!

Zegna- one of the best Italian designers in the business today!  

We just got in 2 amazing suits in a larger size:  44L 39x34 

1 classic navy gabardine and 1 black cashmere wool blend. Both are double breasted 6x1 and pleated trousers. 

With a little tailoring these would be right on target with current Euro trends- at a fraction of today's cost!

Decor & more!

Our newest addition to the shop-

Four deco heavy wood chairs by the Johnson Chair Co.  Extra unique, as they are also tagged by Libby, McNeill, & Libby- a canning company founded in Chicago in the 1800's. A little bit of history comes with these handsome pieces!

Stop by the shop and see them soon!

Pitti Uomo 87 in Florence, Italy was a sea of fedoras, amazing tweed and color!

The men's version of Fashion Week in Europe is called Pitti Uomo 87.  

They just completed the Fall 2015 collections, and I must say I am excited about what lies ahead for men's fashion!

Here is a recap by one of my favorite European blogs- including great photos and an inside scoop on coming trends.
