Chess, Movies, and Coffee

Happy almost Halloween everyone! Do you have any plans this year? As I get older (and have kids) my focus has shifted from parties to family fun and candy. Oh, that candy. Starting now through Christmas my eating just goes out the window. But that’s how it is, isn’t it? Anyway, this year I’ll be staying home to hand out sweets while my wife takes the kids out for the trick-or-treating. I would also love to get some feedback from you on the blog. Do you like the outfit inspiration posts? Do you like seeing the grooming product reviews? Is there any other content you would like to see me tackle? Anything I can improve on (besides consistency in posting, I’m aware of that one haha!). I’m open to any and all feedback to make this blog better and even more interesting. Please let me know In the comments below. And now, on to the posts. Do you compromise on your creative endeavors? Ralph Lauren is offering 30% when you spend $125 using the code STYLE17. I’m really digging this duffel coat, this scarf and these jeans (yes…

Fall Fashion, Cuffed Trousers, and Shaving with Acne

Oh man, I have a jam-packed Weekend Reading post for you all today. We’ve got three reading lists. (I can never get enough lists about books I should read) there are a couple posts on Shaving with acne. I’ve also included another post on the great debate over whether to cuff your pants or not. And there’s even a GQ article from 1967 that I dug up! Oh ya, and some fly fishing. Do you think the internet is making all style homogenous? If you’re going to name something after Friday the 13th, I’m in! I have always been interested in fly fishing. AoM put together an incredible primer on the subject. J. Crew coming up huge with this fall classic. Ready for fall clothes? Barron has a fantastic guide for getting all of your gear ready. I love this green face. The cuffing debate rages on. The perfect boots for fall, and they’re on sale! Three great articles from Sharpologist on shaving with acne. Why it happens. How to do it. What to use. How great is this sweater?! In my search for articles on men&#8217…

New Website, Italian Tailors, and Steak

Man, what a crazy week. I’ve gotten into the habit of writing these Weekend Reading posts on Friday night. I’ll sit out on the deck with a cigar and, sort of, dump my thoughts from the week into the post. This week, if you haven’t noticed, I re-did some of the website, which was actually more intense than might be immediately recognizable. I moved from Squarespace to WordPress. This proved, and is still proving, to be quite a steep learning curve. Hopefully, you can be little patient with me and the site as I learn my way around this. I would also appreciate pointing out any bugs or errors of you happen to notice them. One thing I did not realize would happen is that my RSS feed changed. So, if you were subscribed to the RSS, you will have to update it. You can do that by clicking the link in the sidebar or by using this link. I think in the long run, this will be much more beneficial for Tailor & Barber and my readers. WordPress is a more powerful platform with many tools and superior SEO capabilities. That will…

Harry Dean Stanton, Taylor of Old Bond St., and Girlbosses

I haven’t had a week fly by this fast in years. This was the kids’ first week back in school for a full week. The each had soccer practice last Saturday and then one on Monday night and the other one on Tuesday night. We had other activities Wednesday and Thursday nights. And now we’re back to soccer practice on Saturday morning for both of them. I feel like we’re barrelling into the weekend only to start the whole thing all over again. Look for me do as little as possible on Sunday.
