Outlining the importance of using collar stays and inexpensive options for replacing them.
Brief comparison between Black Lapel and Indochino custom tailored clothing.
I’ve finally taken the plunge and purchased my first (and second) cardigan. Sort of an odd thing to celebrate, but, hear me out. I know I’m not exactly blazing a style trail here, but I can’t believe it took me so long to pull the trigger. With the new modern fit of cardigans, it has…Read the Rest

I’ve been struggling with putting together the last outfit from JCrew. It’s supposed to be the dressiest outfit, which is an issue because JCrew has moved to the more casual/traditional end of the style spectrum. They execute this particular brand of style very well, but it’s also not a polished and shiny look (unless you…Read the Rest
For the second outfit in this series, I’ve focused on something slightly more trendy than yesterday’s ensemble. The corresponding outfit from Banana was a simple pair of clean jeans and a button down shirt. We’ll go with something along the same lines, but throw in a tie, just to show you more ways to spruce…Read the Rest
Last week I targeted Banana Republic for my outfit selections, so this week I’m moving on to the next mass market retailer: JCrew. The problem that I foresee with a JCrew-centric outfit is whittling down the myriad of possibilities (I’m a very big fan of their stuff). I don’t think any other mass market store…Read the Rest
The previous parts of this series tackled a casual night out, followed by a slightly dressier occasion. Today will be selecting an outfit for a trendy club/lounge or a nice restaurant. Here is your chance to show a little bit of your style. Previously, it’s been a bit more subtle, yet the outfits maintained a…Read the Rest
*Note: I’m not sure if this got published, because of the aforementioned deleting of the posts (dumb). If so, sorry for the reposting. Last time I chose an outfit for a casual bar/lounge, where the motivation was to look effortlessly cool. Now we’ll ratchet up the trendiness factor just a tad. The outfit below was…Read the Rest
*Note: sorry for the repost; I somehow managed to delete the two most recent posts. An on-going series for PR will be a virtual version of PR’s personalized services. I’ll put together outfits for different occasions, all from the same store (I’m making it easy for you). I’ll work within a budget of about $250.…Read the Rest
A little secret guys: your undershirt is important. This ranks as one of the most common complaints by women about a guy’s attire. I know you may be saying: “Pffft. Chicks are crazy. It’s just an undershirt. Why are they complaining?” And the simple answer is: because you can see it. Your undershirt should only…Read the Rest
I wanted this post to be a tantrum against Ed Hardy clothing, but I realized that’s like beating a dead, cliche, and ugly horse. So, instead I decided to target the fundamental aspect of what makes Ed Hardy-like clothes so unattractive – inauthenticity (unless, you’re a huge meathead with spiky bleached hair, cause I really…Read the Rest
You know how a shirt should fit. Now, PG will gradually be about adding a bit more modern style into your wardrobe. So, here are a few shirt ideas based on what is stylish now. The easiest way is to stray from solids. That doesn’t mean that solids aren’t modern or that you shouldn’t wear…Read the Rest
For Lesson 1 I’m going to borrow an image from the most recent Johnston & Murphy catalog to help punctuate my point about how a shirt should fit (for now, ignore the ugliness of the shirt). Now, this isn’t me bashing J&M. I actually think some of their shoes are fantastic. But, their clothing line…Read the Rest
