Wolf vs. Goat Does Menswear Right

Wolf vs. Goat
As much as we love heritage brands and heritage ‘inspired’ brands, it is always refreshing to find a company that is taking a fresh approach to menswear.

Wolf vs Goat, founded in 2009, is just such a company. Owned by industry expert Mauro Farinelli, theirs  is an offering to men of beautifully tailored suits, button downs, pants, over coats and knits in a great array of colors and prints (loving the eskimo print!). Egyptian cotton muslin Henley’s? Yep. As Farinelli describes the line, it is sophistication without pretension. Amen! One amazing item is the ‘whole garment’ sweater that is knitted entirely in one piece, eliminating seams and stress points.

The brand is kept well edited with a tight roll out. Mauro keeps numbers small so clients will feel like their garment is not something everyone will have. In turn he is continually rolling out product, keeping guys on their toes.

Another interesting aspect is the rewards program. For a one time payment of $100 you will receive 50% off all future purchases through a promo code. This has been bringing guys back to the site and keeping them looking fresh in Wolf vs Goat’s continual roll out of products. Mauro also makes items just for loyalty members, has great giveaways and allows them first dibs on new items.

Keep a lookout for the newly launched lounge pant. It is another whole garment item that you may not be able to take off. Holiday printed shirts and new suits and chinos are appearing  next month too,  so sign up to know about them and get ready to be spoiled.

WolfvsGoat can be found online as well as at specialty stores including Need Supply, Clothing Brigade and Warehaus

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.
We’ve gathered all the tips you’ll need to pull off your formal wardrobe for the day: we’ll leave you to learn all the rest of the proper comportment and etiquette that a truly formal event requires.

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.
