How to Wear Flower Lapel Pins

How to Wear Flower Lapel Pins

Not too long ago, any respectable man caught wearing a flower lapel pin was thought to be a bit “soft,” and now they are so ubiquitous that even Bishop TD Jakes and other top personalities can be seen rocking them. However, one of the top questions I often receive is “what is the proper way to wear a flower lapel pin?” I truly wish that I can say “whatever floats your boat,” but there is a bit a sartorial protocol that one should consider. First of all, the flower should be placed through the boutonnière hole that can be found...

Thank You Lord for Enlarging Our Territory!

Thank You Lord for Enlarging Our Territory!

Just days after posting the ” You Have Not, Because You Ask Not” blog, we were contacted to do a men’s style article in Dela Jouere Fashion Magazine’s forthcoming July edition. I don’t believe this was simply a coincidence, but rather yet another manifestation of the five things I pray each night before my head hits the pillow: Wisdom Enlarge my territory Bless me, indeed Lord keep Your Hand on me Keep me from evil, so that I may not cause pain I’ve been praying these five things each night over the past five years, and I can give countless...

“You Have Not, Because You Ask Not!”

“You Have Not, Because You Ask Not!”

On my way home from airing yet another live TV broadcast on ABC News Channel 8’s “Let’s Talk Live!”, it hit me that the DMV (DC, Maryland, and Virginia) area didn’t have a recognized “go to” person on men’s fashion/style issues. Therefore, today I declare and decree that I am OFFICIALLY filling that position! Therefore, if you know someone who knows someone who used to be the college roommate of someone who is looking for an “expert” to make TV appearances, write print and Internet style articles, or simply critique what is hot and what is not on the red...

Our Story

We truly thank God for locating our company in an area where Forbes Magazine consistently ranks as “the most affluent county in the Nation”—Loudoun County, Virginia. As a result of this enormous blessing to set-up shop in an area where the median annual household income is $115,574; it didn’t take us long to realize that the gently worn—and sometimes brand new with the tags–men’s designer labels that typically appear in consignment shops–in most other parts of the Nation–can be regularly found at many of the estate sales and thrift stores located in the suburbs of the Nation’s Capital. That’s how...

Get Married in a Dinner Jacket!!!

Get Married in a Dinner Jacket!!!

When it comes to getting married, most grooms simply rent a tux and encourage all of their groomsmen to do the same, in order to participate in the ceremony. However, I’ve long been a proponent that grown men should own grown men clothes, so the first sin in this scenario is committed when grown men don’t own a tailored tuxedo! That said, if you have already taken my advice from previous posts, and copped a tux; good for you! However, even if you own a tux, your “special” wedding day should indeed be special, so let’s leave your tuxedo jacket...

Nothing is Impossible!

Nothing is Impossible!

“By faith we understand the worlds were formed by the Word of God, so that what is seen was not made of things that are visible.”  Hebrews 11:3 This single Scripture has guided most of my adult life, and it has truly manifested in the last two years of this company! Nearly two years ago, I sat on the sofa in our family room, scribbled the attached image, and suddenly Bespoke Not Broke was born!  Many of you have watched this journey from afar, and some of you have had a front-row seat to bear witness of how something unique...
