2013 IN REVIEW AT NO MAN WALKS ALONE
As we peel the last page off the 2013 calendar and take the 2014 version out of shrink wrap, we look back at some of our first few months of blogging.
Greg inaugurated our posting by asking if the world needs another online menswear store. Fortunately, the answer was yes. Not only that, it turned out the world needed another menswear blog as well. So we have spent the past few months posting about aspects of clothing and style that interest us most.
Buying nice clothes is useless if you don’t know how to spot the ones that fit you. So we want to make sure you know a shirt, a pair of shoes, or a jacket should fit,and how to think about the shape and silhouette of a suit jacket.
But a garment’s story is important to us as well. We looked at the history of Fair Isle knitting, the different ways to make suede leather, and the origins of casentino wool.
We also profiled some of the makers of the products we carry in our store, so that you can get to know them as we have. We visited Sartoria Formosa, the legendary Neapolitan sartoria, paged through old Valstar ads, tested the stormy seas around Inis Meain.
We even had some advice on how to look better without spending a dime.
In between our articles, we’ve also been posting pictures of items from the store, some of which you see above.
Here’s to happy memories of a 2013 full of beginnings, and to great hopes for a 2014 surely full of surprises.
