There a comes a point in every man's life when you have to trade in your casual garbs and invest in a finely tailored suit. It's a rite of passage that dictates the end of adolescence and the beginning of manhood.
I've always stated that the modern man's wardrobe should be comprised of 60% staples and 40% "fluff." With this in mind, I decided to make an adult investment in a Tom Ford blazer from Neiman Marcus. While Tom Ford does come with a hefty price tag, it goes without saying that their craftsmanship and tailoring is unparalleled to any other ready to wear collection currently on the market.
When I slid my arms into the blazer for the first time, I was welcomed by the buttery silk lining and impeccable fit of the garment. What I love most about this piece, is the versatility. I've never been much of a "suit" guy so when I paired the blazer with wax coated John Varvatos jeans and Gucci sneakers, I was shocked to see how well it all tied together.
In addition, I've found that shopping for men in the designer category can be a bit difficult due the amount of inventory retail stores offer. I can say without a doubt, that Neiman Marcus has the most extensive variety of menswear options that range from classic's like Tom Ford and Dior, to more contemporary, "edgy," designers like Moschino and Saint Laurent.
In closing, I'd like to say this: Yes, designer clothing is expensive. I by no means am someone who is dripping in the best of what the fashion world has to offer. However, there is no better feeling than wearing an impeccably designer outfit that you worked hard and saved for.
