It’s been a while since I’ve had trousers made for me. MTO to be precise, but hey, who’s askin?
I’ve always wanted to do a lookbook, so we did one. Sorta.
It’s always nice to treat yourself for a pair of custom trousers. Today, we review my latest purchase: chocolate brown peached cotton from Stóffa.
Disclaimer: I received a tie in exchange for this review.
I was recently approached by William of Mr. Jenks to do a review on his Irish Poplin ties. As I have little to no experience with contemporary ties, I knew that I had to take him up on his offer.

It’s been over a year since I’ve purchased an Made-to-Measure suit from Indochino. Now I realized that there were many issues with my first suit made from them, even though I got measured by their own sales associates in their store. The suit looked pretty good after tailoring (and I did get another suit made from them) but I decided not to try them again until I had the money and desire for another suit. Now that I’ve had sometime to learn more about fit, details, and my overall desired aesthetic, I thought I’d save up and give them other try! I also realized that I had a gaping hole in my wardrobe: I didn’t own a plain, navy blue double breasted suit. So I deleted my measurements, got measured by my friend Spencer, and bought a suit on Black Friday. It’s basically a whole new review on Indochino.
Now that we can agree that pleats are cool, it’s time to try them out. I noted in my previous article that it is difficult to obtain pleated pants with the necessary details (high rise, slim-straight). So when I was presented with an opportunity to try and tailor down some 1980’s baggy, double pleated pants, I took it. If it worked out, I may have found a way to get pleated pants at an affordable price! If not, I’ll be out a few bucks, but I know it can’t be done. Let’s find out!
