theshatteredconscience asked: I love your blog! Do you have any jean brand recommendations that are $100 and under?

I’d probably say Uniqlo or Levis, but J. Crew/Club Monaco could also work. 

Anonymous asked: Have you tried Left Shoe’s New York pop-up in Chelsea to experience its unique measurement process where a robotic camera takes a 360-degree, 3D scan of your feet? Wouldn't it be nice to take your "prescription" to any shoemaker like one does glasses?

I’ve seen Left Shoe before, but I haven’t heard about the Pop up. Definitely sounds like a cool concept and I’d love to hear some feedback on how it works. Would be nice to have a scan of your foot surely, but there is also something to be said for the hand-measuring process performed by a bespoke cordwainer.

Anonymous asked: Hi Jake, love the blog. I am currently tux shopping for my wedding in February. What are your thoughts on Tom Ford and what else would you suggest at a comparable price point? Thanks!

Congratulations. Tom Ford makes a great Tuxedo, if you like his styling cues (they’re made to Zegna’s highest standards). You could also go MTM and get whatever you want, but you’d be paying a premium for his brand. 

At that rather generous price point I would consider going MTM or bespoke from someone like Isaia, La Vera Sartoria Napoletana, or Attolini.
