Bespoken Like a Gentleman

The men are looking dapper.  They are putting themselves together.  They are buying custom clothing.  They are shopping for quality that lasts.  They are embracing new twists on classics.  They look good... damn good.

Men's fashion has increased its sophistication.  Products that have a history and that are built to last... that's what its all about.  Who knew tailoring could look so fresh?
If you don't know what these words mean, you should: 

Bespoke: Custom made, tailored clothing

Sartorial: Of or relating to tailored clothes

Cut and Sew: A garment that is made from scratch

You may be surprised to learn that there are Men's fashion bloggers, and the number of Men's fashion shows during fashion week has exploded.  By "popular" request, here is my first post on Men's fashion. ENJOY.

Mr Mort is an amazing fashion blogger who posts photos of stylish men around the world, like this fellow here: 

As my Grandma used to say, Looking Sharp!

Mark Ecko's is an amazing source for men's fashion.
Check out their site for the scoop on Men's style at London Fashion Week:

Varsity jackets, nerd glasses, tapered jeans cuffed at the bottom, plaid, two-toned puffers, and accessorized from head to toe (literally, check out the hats and shoes).

The New Doc Martins

 My Co-worker swears by Marcus Troy: a fashion blogger with swagger to spare. 

He has a great article about his experience at the Men's Fashion Trade Show: Project.

I love the vintage sewing machines and hand-sewn techniques on display:
