Get Personalized at The Tailory New york

Right off one of the most famous streets in the world, Fifth Ave in New York City you'll find The Tailory New York. They are a luxury clothier that specializes in making custom pieces for both men and women to fit their lifestyle. I was invited to come in and have The Tailory experience first hand. Once there, they already had  an inspiration board for me of shirts they thought I would like based on what they saw me wear on my blog. They hit the nail on the head when their main recommendation was a band collar shirt. With a true spirit of collaboration we talked about the style options for the shirt. We decided on a short sleeve shirt and then went on to select the fabric. I knew I wanted it to be a white shirt. We had to think about the weight of the fabric, texture etc. Do you know how many white fabric options they had? Books and books of them including books from Loro Piana and Scabal. The final product is a one of a kind short sleeve banded collared shirt. Take a look at some of the details and how it fits like a glove.


Love this sleeve details.

What I Wore: Transitional Spring

We are in a month that can almost be considered spring but yet mother nature is not on the same page. One day the temperature is in the 50's and others in the 30's. Here's what I recommend for the slightly warmer days, the days you'd gladly venture out to the park and sit in the sun for your lunch break. The key is if you need to layer, make sure they are cotton so that they breath easier. If you like the look but it's a bit too cold add a blazer or denim jacket depending on how causal you want to look. Also, glad to say that for the first time I'm wearing a polka dot shirt! I'm slowly getting used to it so I wore a sweater on top of it so the polka dots are just showing every so. This is in a new venture for me and I'm taking baby steps. I'll show you the whole shirt in the near future, promise.

Woodies: Made For You

I've talked about different custom made clothes before on the blog and one of the things they all had in common was that you needed to have someone take your measurements or for you to measure yourself. Woodies has found a way to bypass that by having you enter the most basic information like your weight and height. If you know your neck size and sleeve length awesome, fill it in too. If you don't, no worries, Woodies will take care of the rest. Pick the fabric, favorite collar, cuff style and more. Now that the temperature is getting warmer and you'll be wearing less layers you will want to make sure your shirt fits right. Don't just take my word for it- check out the site!

Interview | Fabrice Tardieu

Fabrice Tardieu has been working in the fashion industry for over a decade. In 2004 he started a shirt company, Bogosse that was sold in Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom. He then decided to go to the next level and in 2014 created his own namesake collection found at select Neiman Marcus throughout the US. Fabrice Tardieu has taken his travels and cultures in to designing a collection with a combination of street wear and tailoring. He took a moment to answer a couple of my questions about the brand.


Who is the Fabrice Tarieu man?
The Fabrice Tardieu man is successful, confident professional that understands how to dress smart without a suit and tie and takes pride in wearing crafted menswear featuring outstanding quality and fit. 
Fabrice Tardieu is designed to be easily integrated into professional wardrobes but to also serve as standout pieces for casual weekend wear.



What inspired the Fall 15 collection?
My Fall/Winter 2015 collection is the result of my love and passion for different art forms, cultures and aesthetics. For over a decade I have continuously had a vision to design menswear that represents elegance and sophistication while still being young at heart. 
What's your favorite piece from the collection?
This is such a hard question as the collection is so diverse and I love each piece. If I had to choose I would say either the cashmere-jogging suit, kangaroo bomber jacket or pony hair sneakers.


What motivated you to start designing?
I was frustrated with the lack of garments available to men that did not have the detailing and fit that I knew men were seeking most.
Why did you choose Miami as your home base?
As  native Haitian living in Paris for 11 years I knew I had to move closer to family. Miami is a city that   continues to inspire me on a daily basis.
