Men’s Wearhouse scoffed at that offer, and turned the tables, offering to buy its rival for $1.54 billion. The combined company will be the fourth-biggest U.S. men’s clothing retailer with more than 1,700 U.S. stores and about $3.5 billion in sales.
“I felt a great disturbance in the #menswear tag, as if millions of bloggers suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.”
Did you ever end up finding a suitable pair of non blackwatch odd tuxedo trousers? I am looking myself and club Monaco has the perfect pattern but they are cotton, flat front and don't have an extended tab closure :/
I did, actually, in Holland & Sherry’s formalwear fabric book. They seemed like an expensive indulgence that would only give me half of what I really wanted: a full black tie rig.
So, I’m having a new custom tuxedo made for me in a beautiful midnight navy from Huddersfield. I’m not sure if it’ll be ready by New Year’s Eve, but the end result will be worth it.
I probably wouldn’t consider trying to pull off the cotton look from Club Monaco — especially without silk piping along the legs. Also, I’d prefer the pockets be along the seam instead of slanted.
I’ve now gone full Ralph Lipshitz and started wearing my orphaned tuxedo jacket with denim and velvet slippers. This has only made me more reckless when wearing “cowboy black tie”. It would probably look really dumb at an official black-tie function, but it’s perfectly fine for karaoke on a weeknight.
I’ve been slowly accumulating a few mid-century modern pieces from a few places in the Monterey Bay area, including Milestones Modern and Retrospect Mid-Century Modern. I moved out here without any furniture, so it seemed like a good idea to start over and take my time to find some that I really liked around a certain era and design.
