Depends on the pair.  Have an older pair of C&J Sydney in suede that I take the occasional cleaning approach and put on rubber soles.  For the first 4 years or so, I wore them more with dress trousers for work and occasionally with jeans.  Now I wear them more with jeans and chinos because of the "weathered" look they have developed.  This conversion was always my intention.  

 

For my Vass oxfords & AS DMs, I plan to baby them a bit more to keep them for wear with dress trousers and suits.

Kirby,

I would like to buy 3 or 4 of the luxury suit hangers but I fall between a medium and large, some suits are 43R some are 44R, do you recommend going with a larger hanger size? Thanks

I think suede requires much less effort to take care of than calf or cordovan. I brush them a bit after every wear, suede eraser and edge dressing when necessary. At the beginning of a season, I usually waterproof with a spray, but that's about the extent of my regimen. The Saphir product I used yesterday makes the suede look more moisturized than the the AE product I used in the past. Great stuff!

@kirbya

 

I noticed that when I just ordered the 50 inch Luxury Garment Bag that they appear to be on back order. I was wondering if you knew when you expect to get some back in stock?

KIRBY RUINED MY WEDDING...but the man does offer a damn good hanger.

 

It just so happened that today I returned home from a short trip, upon which I had purchased an Isaia tuxedo for my wedding and a Belvest sport coat for hoarding purposes.  Having never purchased suit/tuxedos/sport coats of such a high quality (relatively speaking I suppose), I felt like the coolest cat on the planet just knowing that I could wear them anytime I wanted---they were mine!

 

So I pull into the driveway and see a box the size of one of those PODS storage units (genius contraptions, those PODS).  Confused, I see "The Hanger Project" in large print on the box.  I figure there must have been a mix-up, as I was supposed to be receiving 3 hangers--not 20,000 jars of shoe polish.  

 

I grabbed the keys to my forklift and brought the package inside.  To my amazement, the box really did contain 3 hangers.  Beautiful, awe-inspiring hangers!!!.  Not only can the man make a hanger, he can make a splash.   As I inspected the hangers, I realized that such hangers really did require such a box.  

 

After all, the natural wood grain rivals that of my pride and joy: a Paul Reed Smith with a quilted maple "10" top.  

 

So how'd he ruin my wedding?  I'm glad you asked!  

 

I was so excited about the Isaia hanger--at least as excited as I was about the tux.  The Belvest had come on a merely average hanger, though, so I immediately test drove one of The Hanger Project beauties.  I hung the Belvest beside the Isaia.  The first thing I noticed?  The Isaia hanger doesn't turn!!  Hence the photos of the tux with it's sleeves towards the camera.  I was crushed.

 

 

 

I did a quick visual inspection and the cheap flair of the Isaia orange wore off, revealing not so much a bad hanger in and of itself, but a hanger that became an embarrassment to me and my new tuxedo when placed beside beside Kirby's hanger.  I briefly hung my tux jacket onto the 2nd Hanger Project  hanger and snapped a pic.  

 

Now I'll be returning that tuxedo; suggestions welcome.  

 

It will need to be less expensive, because I'm not going to have to buy a ton of these things.  Plus a new house with its own delivery bay.

 

 

I truly appreciate this gift and I will make very fine use of the hangers.  Thanks for everything Kirby et al!

 

Brendan

Sometimes having your wife scrolling through your facebook account can have its benefits.  Apparently she saw a tie she really liked and surprised me with it.  

 

Wore it recently to an event, so snapped a quick pic - quality fairly bad, but tie came through nicely.  

 

Keep posting those FB pics Kirby and maybe I'll end up with more kick ass ties.

But I never win anything! The timing is perfect, since I need a few more hangers. Although I've bought a number of items from Kirby, these will actually be my first hangers. I'm excited! Thanks much!

New Drake's of London Ties

 

I couldn't be more excited about our new collection of Drake's London ties for the summer. The firm never ceases to impress and continues to put out some of the best handmade ties in the world. For this year's summer collection, we have a beautiful selection of textures and colors. From our beautiful Tussah Silk that could be mistaken for linen to Panama Silk, our Drake's ties are as visually interesting as they are beautifully sewn and limited to just two pieces per colorway.
