Black Tie (Not) Optional
2011/11/29 Better Blueprint

It's that time of year and unless you have a personal tailor, you need to start considering how you're going to muddle through all of your Holiday functions, affairs and parties looking dapper but not overdone. If you have lots of time then have at it, but if you're like most of us and just need to get it done then check out:

  • Bergdorf Goodman's Men's Store ~ not a lot of selection online, but in-store they've got everything (starting point around $1300)
  • Mr. Porter ~ a little pricey but lots of options to choose from (starting point around $800)

Tomorrow, we've got a few great tips for rocking formalwear without all the bells n' whistles....!
