Maybe to illustrate the advantages of tailor-made clothes over ready-made ones from manufacturers’ retail stores, I will begin with the titbit that master tailors do not attach labels with the names of their brands on their clothes. They do not have to, as their distinguishing marks are the manner of sewing and of course their characteristic stitches. The best tailors use silk thread and[...]

Men in Great Britain definitely prefer traditional sewing than suits by Hugo Boss. Tailoring and visits to the tailor are quite popular there. This applies to all social groups, regardless of how much money they have in their wallet, as the British know that a good suit can last their whole life. They find tradition important, that is, the entire process they go through to get a tailor-m[...]

When buying a suit, we should first pay attention to the right cut of the jacket and trousers – a man should look perfect in his suit.
For this to be so, the right cut and material need to be chosen, as well as putting attention on the finishing, then the suit will definitely be the best investment for a man – and for several years. The issue of colours remains unchanged: dark blue an[...]

What is behind the words “an attractive man”? What should he be like?
The answer should not surprise anyone. Everything must simply be attractive: behaviour, clothes, face (flawless complexion), and even speech, that – paradoxically – matters a lot. I already wrote about behaviour – I only remind you that a classy guy is a polite guy, with a wonderful sense of humour (the domain of in[...]

Fashion allows for juggling items, and thank goodness. Taking into account the fixed elements of men’s clothing, that is a suit and its substitute, a jacket matched with trousers, it would seem that there’s not a rich tapestry to work with. But this is not true. Men’s styling has a variety of rules, and – as it turns out – they are not that rigid.
We won’t break the basic canons in me[...]

Barack Obama is undoubtedly one of the best-dressed of men. But was he since becoming president? No. So this means that you can master the art of being stylish and become a stylish man at any age.
During his presidency, as befits the head of the most powerful country in the world, Obama was always well-dressed. He was wearing perfectly cut suits and matching accessories. During his two presiden[...]

Fashion is art – art that we all take part in, and that each of us creates every day.
Artists and designers explore this issue thoroughly and acquire essential knowledge before they set to work on their task; no matter if this is a picture, sculpture, building, everyday object or item of clothing.
A similar situation is with our daily selection of clothes. If we want to be stylish [...]

According to the women I have asked what a classy guy should be like, personality is most important – impeccable manners, propriety, composure and a sense of humour. But without doubt, appearance also matters, which is why elegance took second place in the ranking of features I presented in my previous post.
An elegant man wears proper clothes, not necessarily rich, but always appropr[...]

Some time ago while watching a Champions League match on TV, I heard the commentator talk about the former Real Madrid coach – Zinédine Zidane, saying that the Royal’s orchestrator had class, charisma and personality. Intrigued by that opinion, I looked more closely at this man. And I must admit that indeed this guy has that special something…
Handsome, straight, fine figure, well-dre[...]

In my previous post I promised I would present some noteworthy headwear manufacturers. I have already written a few words about “Polkap” from Skoczów. Today, we will go to Łódź, where the family company “Rabionek” has been operating for 35 years.
Their website details their prized unique annual collections, as well as a wide range of fashionable patterns and colours. And that’s true – i[...]

In autumn and winter I often read about the poor selection of winter caps in our market. People also complain about the low quality.
The topic of headwear is generally a sensitive issue as the vast majority of us do not want to put anything on our heads at all, believing that we look bad or even awful and comical in any winter cap or flat cap. Call it whatever you want, but I think th[...]

Recently I read an interview with a foreign fashion stylist. He claims that we wear standard clothes, that tracksuit-mania and trainer-mania still prevail, and that we most often wear grey and dark colours.
I do not quite agree with this critical opinion. I believe we dress well, definitely better and better. We do not differ from other countries in this respect. First of all, I must [...]
