This is so great.

I hope they find a buyer, because I would be really bummed if Allen Edmonds stopped making shoes.
I wear a suit every chance I get, even when I’m not at work, because it’s like armor for me. I feel better in a suit than I do in jeans and a lot of that has to do with how I’m treated in public. I’m taken more seriously by others when I dress professionally.
Harry’s piece is great. It has me re-thinking my “hardly ever wearing a suit” approach as I try to build my law practice.1
If you’re not going to polish your shoes, however, then I encourage you to at least take one step: every once in a while, when your shoes start to look a little dry, apply a coat of leather conditioner. Routine application will do more for the health and appearance of your shoes than anything else. It will help bring out the suppleness and richness in the leather, give the color some depth, and most importantly, prevent your uppers from drying out and cracking.
I trust the guys at Put This On, and, as a result, I am going to make sure I start doing this.
I can never get enough Dabo.
Megan Collins has created a must-read resource for guys looking to have a little more style in their dress.
After I wore a Double Windsor to court today, we had a discussion at my firm about proper tie knots. I suggested four-in-hand and both people in my firm and the outside experts we consulted agreed that is the way to go from now on.
I like to revisit this list every few months. Some favorites:
Your tie should reach your belt line – it shouldn’t end above your belt or below it.
Only wear a tie if you’re also wearing a suit or sportcoat (or, very casually, a sweater). Shirt, tie and no jacket is the wedding uniform of a nine-year-old.
