The most polarizing word in menswear isn’t even a full word, it’s the three (or maybe two) letters that make up a set of initials. Nothing stirs the pot quite like a good old debate about monograms. Classicists have long labeled them as gauche and ostentatious while their contemporaries counter that they’re one of the rare ways in which a man can truly personalize his everyday attire. We’d venture to say that both sides are correct – yes, monograms are flashy but they’re also highly personal, and can help demarcate not just your shirt but you as a whole.





Flickr Find | Business Cards

Flickr Find is a weekly column of interesting things found on the amazing and inspiring photo sharing website Flickr.

img_0032.jpgOne of the greatest feelings in the world is getting your first set of business cards. I remember the quiet sense of accomplishment when I got my first printing. I have since become a bit of business card snob. I remember walking in the rain a few years ago to the Brooklyn Navy Yard to oversee the production of my letterpress cards from Woodside Press. The business card Flickr pool has some really creative and cool examples.

I am a total sucker for a romantic comedy. This video is pure genius.

Seeing how American Psycho has become 50% of the meager beginning of this blog…i’m going to hold off on any more references for a while.
