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 help me deliver better content to more people making this a more viable online blog/magazine/etc. But it’s something new I need to learn too. I hope it’s not too difficult a transition for all of you.
I’m a big proponent of eating local, pastured beef. This article really gives a lot of great information on why.

I’ll be writing a full article. But I recently grabbed a few of these, and they’re already my favorite OCBDs.

Brian had two fantastic article this week. One on buying a quality suit. And on casual dressing for guys past their twenties.

My new “go to” fall shaving soap. Get the aftershave balm too.

This is like watching a video game, but it’s real!

What a great piece of writing on the inside workings of Brunello Cucinelli.

Time to grab some warm, corduroys too.

David’s breakdown of some iconic Italian tailors is fascinating.

I’m thinking about grabbing a new razor too. Definitely want to give some of the Razorock ones a try.
