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.

loveguythings asked: any places to recommend in LA? Thanks in advance!
Maxfield, Fred Segal, South Willard, Union, Mister Freedom. There’s probably a lot more, but I don’t know LA that well sorry.
Anonymous asked: What watches do you own/want?
I own a beautiful Oris and a couple military/diver style beaters. I’m a big fan of vintage watches and would love an older Breguet some day. In the shorter term, a vintage Tudor flake would probably do.
Anonymous asked: I wholeheartedly agree with you that button-downs aren't formal enough with suits. However, I confess I like wearing ones with hidden buttons. We all have our vices.
That’s a very moderate vice as well, all things considered.
