Last time we showed you Black Manufacturing, we didn’t know when we might see something new from the high quality, limited run brand. This time, we’re telling you to strike while the iron is hot, because they just dropped their holiday capsule with a run of high-quality parkas that aren’t messing around.

Every article of clothing in the Black Mfg closet is understated and simple, but carries the kind of intricate care and detail that makes unwrapping your new coat a trip into checking every stitch and corner for something you missed. It’s a special tag on the pocket, or a stitching pattern on the cuff, that expresses the time that went into each jacket or shirt.

High-quality materials? Adam Fous, Creative Director for Black Mfg, doesn’t know how to make clothing any other way. That jacket might look grey, but that would be a serious understatement, since the outer material is actually quilted Japanese selvage chambray. Boom.


YYK is great for the zippers on your dad’s jeans, but these jackets are equipped with Riri M8 two-way zippers, for an extra dash of luxury every time you put it on or take it off. All the trim and cord locks are premium leather, too; no cutting corners here.


And pockets? Oh yeah, there are pockets. The kind of pockets that hold your junk, your hands, and your gadgets, with plenty of room to spare for extra gloves and scarves, tucked neatly behind sturdy snap closures.


You can choose from three different colors of parka over at Black Manufacturing.

Your Complete Guide To Black Tie Attire with Tuxedo Tips

It’s finally happened. For the first time, or the first time in a very long time, you’ve received an invitation with the words “Black Tie,” or “Formal Attire,” engraved into that creamy white paper. Whether it’s a wedding, a charity gala, or a political reception, this is the one time when what has become an almost universal casual dress code is thrown out the window, and all those Society (with a capital S) rules from the 19th-century kick in.
The host or hostess of a formal event has chosen to go this route because they want a very controlled, perfect event, so this is not the time to place yourself in the sartorial spotlight. We men actually get off pretty easy for formal events: Although we’re expected to be well-groomed, dressed appropriately, and on our best behavior, we don’t have to go to nearly the trouble that women do.

How to Buy a Quality Sweater: Material, Types, and Tips

Having the right sweater to wear with any outfit is kind of like a wine pairing. Can you serve a tasty steak with a wine that’s not a luscious Cabernet Sauvignon? Sure, but it’s just not as perfect. Building a sweater wardrobe is what separates the sartorially proficient from the stylistically sad. We suggest choosing a few key pieces that work with your life, career, and wardrobe, buying the best you can afford, and then taking good care of them. 
Like so many things in life, in sweaters, you usually do get what you pay for. That is not to say that sometimes expensive designer merchandise isn’t made from cheap materials, and what you’re really paying for is a few square inches of logo-embroidered label. Conversely, a store will sometimes sell a well-made sweater of quality yarns as a “loss-leader,” hoping to tempt you into the department to splurge on other things. Without diving too deeply into technical specifications, just keep in mind the following: Natural fibers like wool or cotton, are more expensive than man-made fibers like acrylic, and they also usually hold up better. Before you buy a sweater, turn it inside out: are the seams straight and bound properly, so they won’t come apart easily after a few wears? Does the zipper feel like it could catch easily on the sweater itself? Are the buttons sewn on securely? Beyond that, buy the best you can afford, and hold onto your receipts.
