Preordered the grizz in brown, but if i didn't already have the Eidos/Vanson I'd for sure get the black. That said, the brown is really cool, it's the first one I've ever seen that can be styled outside of workwear.
Exactly. Being able to style it outside of workwear is great. Usually Grizzly jackets seem to repro for me.

Read this last night. Very well done! Thanks for including it in my recent order.
Would love some feedback. What did you (and others here) like the most? We try to mix things up a little.

I agree with @smittycl, the guide is very well done.

What I like about it is that it assumes a certain level of men’s clothing knowledge of its readers. Also the perfect (to me) amount of pictures, not too many, just enough to get your point across.

In honor of the passing of the great Ennio Morricone.

The Good:
- Really liked the photography. Professional shots that helped convey the intent of the articles
- Agree with @hpreston that some menswear knowledge was assumed but a novice could benefit as well
- Good focus on fit throughout
- Neat Lessons Learned from @Newcomer who I assume is your best customer? (Curious if the pics are really him as I always pictured the guy in an ICU hooked up to various machines after he sold all his organs off to buy clothes...) ;)
- Great shoe articles especially @patrickBOOTH 's piece. Will try the vinegar trick this winter (if we ever get an actual winter here in DC anymore)

The Bad:
- one negative point is that some of the diagrams showed fits that were incorrect. Lazy readers may not get to the text that explains how the pic was actually what NOT to do. Showing right and wrong together is ideal but takes up space. Recommend defaulting to only the correct fit diagrams if space is an issue. (I noticed that was @dieworkwear 's piece and in no way mean any insult. In fact, I'll admit I was a complete dick the last time I was active in the Drake's thread but that's another story. :blush: (was that too High School yearbook-y?)
- negative cool points for showing a pic of that smashing Schneider cream with crazy blue/brown plaid overcoat. Just rubbing it in as I missed it and should have pounced when I had the chance...

The Ugly
Nah, all good here. I'm taking my copy to work to try and influence some of the younger dudes to dress better. Maybe, once some time has passed, post as a PDF on your website?

Il Micio belt came in... it's super cool. I got a size S, which keeps a pretty trim and neat "overhang" part of the belt (just past the first loop), but I'm wondering if the Medium might be a better look.

The boho links do stretch a little bit over time
