Welcome to Tailor and Barber!
Our goal is to become the Internet’s premier resource for men’s style and grooming. We want to be a resource that is helpful, educational and resourceful serving all men who want to improve their style and have questions or difficulties with their grooming regimen.
For centuries men had to enlist the services of tailors and barbers to improve their style. While we wholeheartedly endorse those services, we do realize that men can take more control of their daily “look” by looking for more properly fitted clothes, wet shaving at home, shining their own shoes, etc. So, we created Tailor and Barber as a resource for men who want to take control of those areas in their lives.
We come from backgrounds that include large and small companies, formal and casual work environments and industries that include Wall Street, legal agencies, restaurant management and medical sales. The one truth that extends beyond all of these industries is that how you look matters. Baggy khakis and a poofy button down shirt are not going to cut it anymore. You may not like it, you may not want to accept it, but it’s true. It’s a part of the world in which we live.
The goal of this blog is to educate, help and recommend products for men. Unlike some traditional magazines like Esquire and GQ, we do not believe that looking your best requires a $5,000 custom suit. Would that suit look great? Sure. However, you can still look fantastic with some patience and a discerning eye for much less. Throughout this blog we hope you will find the resources to develop this patience and an eye for style.
Is is important to realize while style is classic and fashion is constantly trending, style is still subjective. We welcome open discussion on any topics. Please feel free to post any comments that help enrich the discussion on style. Please also feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions.
We’re ecstatic that you found us on the web, and we’re looking forward to the opportunity to help you grow your style.
