4 Fall Colors to Shake Up Your Wardrobe

 

Fall is fast approaching, and with it comes the onslaught of earth tones like brown, tan, maroon, green, and mustard. These are tried and true options that fit the season like a glove, but for anyone looking to deviate from fall color fashion trends we’ve got your back. Here are 4 fall colors to shake up your wardrobe.

Grey

Grey is typically considered a winter color, but it can do wonders as an accent for fall ensembles with a professional slant. Blazers and sports coats were made for this task. The key to remember is stay away from sheen in the fall. A grey blazer or sports coat that has accents of brown are fantastic all-around options that pair well with traditional autumnal settings.

Olive Green

Olive green works well as pullover sweaters to give a color boost to dark colored jeans. Olive is an earth tone that warms up cool blues, greys, and blacks. Put it to use as a way to update your fall style without needing to change too much about your year-round closet staples.

Charcoal

Top coats and overcoats benefit greatly from charcoal as a color. It gives them a cool winter vibe that is easy to coordinate while simultaneously offering an off black option that’ll transition well into winter months.

Navy

Navy is a rich, deep, color traditionally associated with summer (dark denims), so if you’re looking to keep those vibes alive then try incorporating it into fall styles. Navy cardigans are a great place to start. They allow layered looks and go really well with earth tones like tan and maroon.

At Original Stitch we offer a fully customizable collection of premium quality dress shirt, suit blazer, and pant fabrics. Use them to create a wardrobe that is completely unique to YOU. Our high-quality yarns are hand-selected from – and tailored in – Japan to be extra resistant to wear and tear while maintaining a softer feel than their off-the-rack counterparts.

An Original Stitch Guide to Fall and Winter Fabrics

 

Summer is going to be letting up soon. The time to say goodbye to lightweight linens and open cotton weaves is getting close. Not sure how you should transition your wardrobe appropriately? Consider this Original Stitch guide to fall and winter fabrics. Keep reading to learn the different use cases for suede and nubuck or how to properly incorporate cotton into cold weather ensembles.

Fall Fabric #1 - The Case for Cotton

Cotton is really good at wicking and evaporating moisture when it’s warm, but does it keep you warm when it’s cold out? Yes… when it’s dry. The mistake most often made with cotton is using it as a base layer in warm and cool weather. Wicking and absorption will happen as intended in cold weather, but evaporation is what makes cotton work.  Cotton will absorb moisture just fine when placed as a base layer in any weather, but that moisture won’t evaporate when it’s cold out. Use cotton, instead, as an outer layer (jacket) or middle layer (dress shirt) and give it ample room to stay dry and lock down escaping body heat. Here are a few traditional cotton fabrics to get you started.

  • Gabardine: Gabardine used to be made from wool but has been modernized by cotton. It’s a super tight weave – the original Burberry Trench used it – that results in a dense, waterproof, finish.
  • Corduroy: Cotton corduroy is thick and heat retaining. It’s best when used in cold, dry climates as an outer layer such as pants or jackets.
  • Denim: We all know the benefits of denim, right? It’s made of cotton so it’s lightweight and breathable, but it utilizes a tight-knit twill weave so its durable to boot.
  • Flannel: Flannel, much like Gabardine, has its roots in wool. It’s a soft and durable fabric that regulates body heat when used as an outer layer.

This Navy Blue Plaid Flannel is 100% cotton, thick woven, and ready to get active. It’s an attractive weekend wear no matter where the weekend takes you.

 

Fall Fabric #2 – Let the Leather Out

Leather has a rep of being stylish, versatile, and remarkably durable for good reason. Most forms will stick with you for years with little to no maintenance on your part. There is no better investment when it comes to fall styles. Leather starts off supple – brimming with youthful energy – and ends up dignified, weathered, and elegant. Here are a few types worthy of a spot in your cool weather collection.

  • Shearling: Shearling leather is sheepskin that has been tanned with the wool left on. Jackets made from shearling leather offer 100% protection from the elements and is a stylish outer layer that works with many looks.
  • Suede: Suede is a leather made from the underside of an animal. It produces a fuzzy, or napped, garment that should avoid rainy days. Suede shoes are surprisingly low maintenance, even with its aversion to submersion. Applying a water repellent treatment and brushing them every once in a while go a long way to keep them looking their best.
  • Nubuck: Nubuck is a lot like suede, except it is a top-grain leather. It produces shoes and jackets that feature a more pronounced nap and resilient finish than its underbelly counterpart. Nubuck deals with water a bit better but will still benefit from a routine repellent treatment and periodic brushing.

Fall Fabric #3 – Wool Will Warm What Ails Ya

Wool is a fantastic temperature regulator. In warm weather it pulls moisture away from the body, keeping a layer of dry air next to the skin. When that moisture evaporates the body is cooled.  In cool, wet weather, wool absorbs moisture from the atmosphere. This action generates – and retains – escaping heat. Wet or dry, wool performs up to snuff. Here are a few styles you’ll want to look out for come fall.

  • Mohair: The luxury wool. Mohair is to fabric what diamonds are to jewelry. It’s sheared from the Angora goat and produces soft, durable, and waterproof clothing.
  • Tweed: The ‘all in a day’s work’ wool. Tweed is a hard wearing, beat ‘em up, fabric that is extremely good at keeping in body heat. It is stiff and thick and usually woven using different color threads to create a dynamic “V” pattern.
  • Merino: The intimate wool. Merino is lightweight and moisture wicking. It works incredibly well as base layer underwear or a mid/outer layer date night sweater.
  • Wosrted: The suit’s wool. Worsted wool is a tightly-weaved, brushed, fabric that boasts a smooth finish uncharacteristic to other wools.
  • Cashmere: The finest wool. Cashmere, also known as Pashmina, is one of the softest wools available. It is a must for knitted accessories like gloves, scarves, and hats.
  • Lambswool: The youngest wool. Lambswool is an exceptionally soft wool shorn from lambs 7 months or younger. It’s moisture wicking, breathable, and hypoallergenic.

Our Cordura Stretch Check is the perfect year-round, wool-blend, fabric for suit jackets and pants.

 

Fall Fabric #4 – Fall Back on Fleece

Fleece is a synthetic fiber made from polyethylene terephthalate. It’s lightweight and has anti-perspirant qualities that allow sweat to pass through easily, keeping the body warm and dry. But because fleece is a synthetic fiber it takes chemicals – which are harmful to the environment – to produce. Eco-fleece uses recycled polyester as an ethical alternative, but chemicals are still involved in the process. So, yeah, maybe fall back on fleece. If you want a natural alternative, try the fiber it was made imitate. Wool.

At Original Stitch we offer a fully customizable collection of premium quality dress shirt, suit blazer, and pant fabrics. Use them to create a wardrobe that is completely unique to YOU. Our high-quality yarns are hand-selected from – and tailored in – Japan to be extra resistant to wear and tear while maintaining a softer feel than their off-the-rack counterparts.

What is considered a high-quality dress shirt?

 

The quality of a dress shirt can be measured by many metrics. Always keep an eye out for fine details such as buttons, stitching, and seams. A high-quality dress shirt will feature tightly-sewn buttons, clean stitching, and matching patterns. Also be on the look out for split yokes, pleats, and natural materials like cotton. These are clear indicators of a well-made dress shirt. Let’s dive into each category and go over exactly what makes a high-quality dress shirt.

High-Quality Dress Shirt Material

The easiest way to determine the quality of a dress shirt is its material. Cotton is one of the best all-around materials for high-quality dress shirts because it breathes well, handles perspiration like a boss, and can be easily washed. Thicker weaves are also good because they help dress shirts hold their shape longer without the need to iron. While 100% natural materials like cotton is the go-to standard for a high-quality dress shirt, a small percentage of man-made material isn’t a deal breaker. Many synthetic fibers are included in dress shirts to add wrinkle-resistance, stretch, and durability. But beware: anything made with more than a few percentage points of synthetic fibers can be a sign of cost-cutting rather than good, purposeful, craftsmanship. Here are a few of our favorite 100% cotton Original Stitch Dress shirts to get you started.

High-Quality Dress Shirt Stitching

Most stitching on dress shirts today is done by machine, but there are varying degrees of quality control that you can take to make sure you’re getting the best quality available. Tight edges and seams – stitching that you can’t see through or pry apart with a fingernail – are a great way to determine this. You can also count the stitches per inch. 22 stitches per inch is generally considered very high quality, but anything above 18 is a good sign.

High-Quality Dress Shirt Buttons

Plastic shirt buttons are extremely common, but that doesn’t mean the shirt you’ve got your eye on is poor quality. If the buttons are plastic and the button stitch is tight, you’re in for a pretty good time. If you want to bypass plastic altogether, then mother of pearl is a great step towards higher quality. Mother of pearl buttons are generally thinner than plastic buttons, so don’t let that discourage you. Online tailors like Original Stitch will allow you to choose your button type and configuration, but if you’re buying off the rack, buttons on the sleeve of a dress shirt will point you to the good stuff.

High-Quality Dress Shirt Yokes

The yoke of a dress shirt is the cloth that lays over the shoulder blade and connects the shoulder fabric to the upper back section via horizontal stitch. A high-quality dress shirt will feature a split yoke – a seam that starts under the collar and goes down the middle to connect with the horizontal seam. This allows tailors to adjust each side of the back individually for a better, more uniform fit.

High-Quality Dress Shirt Pleats

Most dress shirts found in big box stores tend to feature pleats. Pleats, like the common box pleat, are a way to help the shirt keep its shape and stay close to the body. High-quality, in this respect, refers to the fit of the shirt and how it contours naturally around the back and shoulders. Side pleats are a cut above the box variant in that it allows your body to inform the fabric’s shape in a less obtrusive way. Observe below how including no pleats at all (plain) would be even more true to your form. At Original Stitch, we offer many styles of pleat, including box, side, side dart and plain.

High-Quality Dress Shirt Monograms

Monograms aren’t necessarily an indicator of high-quality. Truth is, anyone can have them added to off-the-rack shirts. BUT if you find a tailor or brand that can facilitate monogramming in house – like Original Stitch – it’s a good sign that they’re more likely to be directly involved in the manufacturing process than those who don’t.

At Original Stitch we offer a fully customizable collection of premium quality dress shirt, suit blazer, and pant fabrics. Use them to create a wardrobe that is completely unique to YOU. Our high-quality yarns are hand-selected from – and tailored in – Japan to be extra resistant to wear and tear while maintaining a softer feel than their off-the-rack counterparts.

Top Professional Fall Fashion Trends For Men in 2022

 

Summer is coming to a close, and with its end comes the need for more cool weather clothing options. Not to worry. We’ve got you covered with the top professional fall fashion trends for men in 2022.

Quilted Jacket

Quilted jackets are to fall what puffer coats are to winter. They’re fashionable, functional, and can work with myriad styles. How heavy the one you choose should correspond to the season. Mild falls should be met with light to medium weight quilted jackets. Colder weather is reserved for hefty renditions. Whatever weight class you decide on will do wonders to smarten up your look regardless of implementation.

Oxford Cloth Button Up

The button up dress shirt is classic style. But what is the difference between an Oxford shirt and a standard dress shirt? Well, an Oxford dress shirt typically has a stiffer collar and usually comes as a button down. It is a happy medium between the sheen of more formal dress shirts and the boxy, basket-weave pattern of casual dress shirts. Keep the comfort of the casual weave with the professional look of a short point (or cutaway or rounded) collar by simply opting for an Oxford button up variant – like our Pink, White, or Grey Dobby Oxfords – to round out your Fall weather fashion.

Wool Pants

Wool and wool blend pants – like our Medium Grey Blended Wool slack fabric – are great for weather patterns that change periodically. Thicker wool retains body heat while lightweight weaves have the ability to breathe in the breeze. Wool also pulls moisture away from the body while repelling light snow and rain. Did we mention wool also resists wrinkles? The practical benefits of wool aside, pants made from the textile just look snazzy and allows for visual texture to be added to any ensemble.

Cap Toes, Monk Straps and Brogues

There are many shoe options coming in strong for Fall of 2022, but our three favorites are listed here. They are cap toes, monk straps, and brogues. What we love about the cap toe is its sheer versatility. They can often be worn with dress slacks, chinos, or even a nice denim. Monk straps add a bit of flare to liven up your wardrobe, and brogues bring with them regal style points that can be enjoyed in the office or in more formal settings.

At Original Stitch we offer a fully customizable collection of premium quality dress shirt, suit blazer, and pant fabrics. Use them to create a wardrobe that is completely unique to YOU. Our high-quality yarns are hand-selected from – and tailored in – Japan to be extra resistant to wear and tear while maintaining a softer feel than their off-the-rack counterparts.

How To Dress Well – 5 Practices Every Man Should Know


Fashion as a concept has many rules, but personal style is whatever we make of it. Wearing what we want, how we want, is a liberating feeling, so it’s no wonder many of us use style as a form of expression. If you’re happy in crocs, tube socks, and cargo shorts, then by all means – have at it! But if you’re looking to fuse your personal style with a few established fashion concepts, then we’re here to help. Here are 6 practices to sharpen your fashion sense that every man should know. Whether you’re looking to incorporate these rules into your personal style or simply aiming to understand the do’s (don’ts are for more formal settings) so you can break them, we’ve got you covered.

Practice Number 1 - Wear well-fitting clothes

Yes. Well-fitting clothes, not just suits. Wearing the right size shirt and pants is a good start, but to really get the most out of your wardrobe, you’re going to want to kick things up a level. Tailoring is a great option. A good tailor will be able to extended their services to any suits, dress shirts, slacks, or jeans you may want tucked or hemmed. If time is an issue, try working with an online tailor like Original Stitch. Here, you can not only tailor the fit of dress shirts, slacks, and suit jackets to your specific measurements, but you can also customize the look and feel of every piece. You’re the designer that knows you best. We just bring your vision to life.   

Practice Number 2 - Have versatile coat options

Since making sure your clothes fit well is at the top of the list, then the very next thing we need to take a look at is how you accentuate them. Every coat you own, in a perfect world, would be functional to some capacity. Even if that capacity is to net you style points. For that reason alone, we recommend diversifying your coat closet. Every outfit deserves a jacket topper – even if you’re leaving it in the car – so make sure your wardrobe can deliver when the situation arises. There are so many to choose from! Dusters, Trench, Puffers, and Parkas. Windbreakers, Cargos, Denim, and Harringtons. Look around the net and you’re sure to find something to suit your style’s climate. The aforementioned list is a good place to start.

Practice Number 3 - Don’t skimp on shoes

Seriously. Don’t do it. Shoes can really make or break an outfit, but how often do you give them a second thought when getting dressed? If you just realized you don’t, don’t worry. You are not alone. You are overwhelmingly not alone. But the key to stepping up your shoe game is no big secret. Just shift focus from quantity to quality. Housing a few solid color options spread across your categorical need for footwear should suffice. Some good starter colors are brown, black, and white for casual shoes. Tan and black (with belts to match) for business attire. Black for formal. Sneakers and running shoes are the exception if and when outfitted with the intent to be active. Again, this is a cost vs price situation. Cheaper shoes may be priced right right now but at some point their propensity for high turnover will end up costing you. Grow your collection over time with good, quality, pieces that are priced accordingly.

Practice Number 4 - Familiarize yourself with how to match colors and patterns

Color and pattern matching are two often overlooked perks of ensemble planning. Mixing stripes with plaid used to be a no-no, but ask any fashion forward person today and they’ll say stripes and plaid were made for each other. So, have fun with it. Know the basic rules for color or pattern matching so that breaking them becomes an informed choice, not haphazard happenstance. At the end of the day, aesthetic features are your friend. Get familiar with the basics of color and patterns and how they work together and you’ll never feel like your wardrobe is out of place again.

Practice Number 5 - Develop good grooming habits

Good grooming habits are essential to looking and feeling your best. What does your routine look like? Do you have a skin care regiment that is specific to its respective zone (face, neck, hands, feet)? Do you incorporate a nail care routine that facilitates trimming, cutting, and cleaning? And what of your hair? Are you rubbing or patting it dry? Because rubbing causes breakage. There is no right or wrong answer to creating the perfect grooming routine, but if you at least address these few areas outside of the normal shower and shave, you’ll be sitting pretty.

At Original Stitch we offer a fully customizable collection of premium quality dress shirt, suit blazer, and pant fabrics. Use them to create a wardrobe that is completely unique to YOU. Our high-quality yarns are hand-selected from – and tailored in – Japan to be extra resistant to wear and tear while maintaining a softer feel than their off-the-rack counterparts.

4 Fall Colors to Shake Up Your Wardrobe

4 Fall Colors to Shake Up Your Wardrobe

 

Fall is fast approaching, and with it comes the onslaught of earth tones like brown, tan, maroon, green, and mustard. These are tried and true options that fit the season like a glove, but for anyone looking to deviate from fall color fashion trends we’ve got your back. Here are 4 fall colors to shake up your wardrobe.

Grey

Grey is typically considered a winter color, but it can do wonders as an accent for fall ensembles with a professional slant. Blazers and sports coats were made for this task. The key to remember is stay away from sheen in the fall. A grey blazer or sports coat that has accents of brown are fantastic all-around options that pair well with traditional autumnal settings.

Olive Green

Olive green works well as pullover sweaters to give a color boost to dark colored jeans. Olive is an earth tone that warms up cool blues, greys, and blacks. Put it to use as a way to update your fall style without needing to change too much about your year-round closet staples.

Charcoal

Top coats and overcoats benefit greatly from charcoal as a color. It gives them a cool winter vibe that is easy to coordinate while simultaneously offering an off black option that’ll transition well into winter months.

Navy

Navy is a rich, deep, color traditionally associated with summer (dark denims), so if you’re looking to keep those vibes alive then try incorporating it into fall styles. Navy cardigans are a great place to start. They allow layered looks and go really well with earth tones like tan and maroon.

At Original Stitch we offer a fully customizable collection of premium quality dress shirt, suit blazer, and pant fabrics. Use them to create a wardrobe that is completely unique to YOU. Our high-quality yarns are hand-selected from – and tailored in – Japan to be extra resistant to wear and tear while maintaining a softer feel than their off-the-rack counterparts.

An Original Stitch Guide to Fall and Winter Fabrics

An Original Stitch Guide to Fall and Winter Fabrics

 

Summer is going to be letting up soon. The time to say goodbye to lightweight linens and open cotton weaves is getting close. Not sure how you should transition your wardrobe appropriately? Consider this Original Stitch guide to fall and winter fabrics. Keep reading to learn the different use cases for suede and nubuck or how to properly incorporate cotton into cold weather ensembles.

Fall Fabric #1 - The Case for Cotton

Cotton is really good at wicking and evaporating moisture when it’s warm, but does it keep you warm when it’s cold out? Yes… when it’s dry. The mistake most often made with cotton is using it as a base layer in warm and cool weather. Wicking and absorption will happen as intended in cold weather, but evaporation is what makes cotton work.  Cotton will absorb moisture just fine when placed as a base layer in any weather, but that moisture won’t evaporate when it’s cold out. Use cotton, instead, as an outer layer (jacket) or middle layer (dress shirt) and give it ample room to stay dry and lock down escaping body heat. Here are a few traditional cotton fabrics to get you started.

  • Gabardine: Gabardine used to be made from wool but has been modernized by cotton. It’s a super tight weave – the original Burberry Trench used it – that results in a dense, waterproof, finish.
  • Corduroy: Cotton corduroy is thick and heat retaining. It’s best when used in cold, dry climates as an outer layer such as pants or jackets.
  • Denim: We all know the benefits of denim, right? It’s made of cotton so it’s lightweight and breathable, but it utilizes a tight-knit twill weave so its durable to boot.
  • Flannel: Flannel, much like Gabardine, has its roots in wool. It’s a soft and durable fabric that regulates body heat when used as an outer layer.

This Navy Blue Plaid Flannel is 100% cotton, thick woven, and ready to get active. It’s an attractive weekend wear no matter where the weekend takes you.

 

Fall Fabric #2 – Let the Leather Out

Leather has a rep of being stylish, versatile, and remarkably durable for good reason. Most forms will stick with you for years with little to no maintenance on your part. There is no better investment when it comes to fall styles. Leather starts off supple – brimming with youthful energy – and ends up dignified, weathered, and elegant. Here are a few types worthy of a spot in your cool weather collection.

  • Shearling: Shearling leather is sheepskin that has been tanned with the wool left on. Jackets made from shearling leather offer 100% protection from the elements and is a stylish outer layer that works with many looks.
  • Suede: Suede is a leather made from the underside of an animal. It produces a fuzzy, or napped, garment that should avoid rainy days. Suede shoes are surprisingly low maintenance, even with its aversion to submersion. Applying a water repellent treatment and brushing them every once in a while go a long way to keep them looking their best.
  • Nubuck: Nubuck is a lot like suede, except it is a top-grain leather. It produces shoes and jackets that feature a more pronounced nap and resilient finish than its underbelly counterpart. Nubuck deals with water a bit better but will still benefit from a routine repellent treatment and periodic brushing.

Fall Fabric #3 – Wool Will Warm What Ails Ya

Wool is a fantastic temperature regulator. In warm weather it pulls moisture away from the body, keeping a layer of dry air next to the skin. When that moisture evaporates the body is cooled.  In cool, wet weather, wool absorbs moisture from the atmosphere. This action generates – and retains – escaping heat. Wet or dry, wool performs up to snuff. Here are a few styles you’ll want to look out for come fall.

  • Mohair: The luxury wool. Mohair is to fabric what diamonds are to jewelry. It’s sheared from the Angora goat and produces soft, durable, and waterproof clothing.
  • Tweed: The ‘all in a day’s work’ wool. Tweed is a hard wearing, beat ‘em up, fabric that is extremely good at keeping in body heat. It is stiff and thick and usually woven using different color threads to create a dynamic “V” pattern.
  • Merino: The intimate wool. Merino is lightweight and moisture wicking. It works incredibly well as base layer underwear or a mid/outer layer date night sweater.
  • Wosrted: The suit’s wool. Worsted wool is a tightly-weaved, brushed, fabric that boasts a smooth finish uncharacteristic to other wools.
  • Cashmere: The finest wool. Cashmere, also known as Pashmina, is one of the softest wools available. It is a must for knitted accessories like gloves, scarves, and hats.
  • Lambswool: The youngest wool. Lambswool is an exceptionally soft wool shorn from lambs 7 months or younger. It’s moisture wicking, breathable, and hypoallergenic.

Our Cordura Stretch Check is the perfect year-round, wool-blend, fabric for suit jackets and pants.

 

Fall Fabric #4 – Fall Back on Fleece

Fleece is a synthetic fiber made from polyethylene terephthalate. It’s lightweight and has anti-perspirant qualities that allow sweat to pass through easily, keeping the body warm and dry. But because fleece is a synthetic fiber it takes chemicals – which are harmful to the environment – to produce. Eco-fleece uses recycled polyester as an ethical alternative, but chemicals are still involved in the process. So, yeah, maybe fall back on fleece. If you want a natural alternative, try the fiber it was made imitate. Wool.

At Original Stitch we offer a fully customizable collection of premium quality dress shirt, suit blazer, and pant fabrics. Use them to create a wardrobe that is completely unique to YOU. Our high-quality yarns are hand-selected from – and tailored in – Japan to be extra resistant to wear and tear while maintaining a softer feel than their off-the-rack counterparts.

What is considered a high-quality dress shirt?

What is considered a high-quality dress shirt?

 

The quality of a dress shirt can be measured by many metrics. Always keep an eye out for fine details such as buttons, stitching, and seams. A high-quality dress shirt will feature tightly-sewn buttons, clean stitching, and matching patterns. Also be on the look out for split yokes, pleats, and natural materials like cotton. These are clear indicators of a well-made dress shirt. Let’s dive into each category and go over exactly what makes a high-quality dress shirt.

High-Quality Dress Shirt Material

The easiest way to determine the quality of a dress shirt is its material. Cotton is one of the best all-around materials for high-quality dress shirts because it breathes well, handles perspiration like a boss, and can be easily washed. Thicker weaves are also good because they help dress shirts hold their shape longer without the need to iron. While 100% natural materials like cotton is the go-to standard for a high-quality dress shirt, a small percentage of man-made material isn’t a deal breaker. Many synthetic fibers are included in dress shirts to add wrinkle-resistance, stretch, and durability. But beware: anything made with more than a few percentage points of synthetic fibers can be a sign of cost-cutting rather than good, purposeful, craftsmanship. Here are a few of our favorite 100% cotton Original Stitch Dress shirts to get you started.

High-Quality Dress Shirt Stitching

Most stitching on dress shirts today is done by machine, but there are varying degrees of quality control that you can take to make sure you’re getting the best quality available. Tight edges and seams – stitching that you can’t see through or pry apart with a fingernail – are a great way to determine this. You can also count the stitches per inch. 22 stitches per inch is generally considered very high quality, but anything above 18 is a good sign.

High-Quality Dress Shirt Buttons

Plastic shirt buttons are extremely common, but that doesn’t mean the shirt you’ve got your eye on is poor quality. If the buttons are plastic and the button stitch is tight, you’re in for a pretty good time. If you want to bypass plastic altogether, then mother of pearl is a great step towards higher quality. Mother of pearl buttons are generally thinner than plastic buttons, so don’t let that discourage you. Online tailors like Original Stitch will allow you to choose your button type and configuration, but if you’re buying off the rack, buttons on the sleeve of a dress shirt will point you to the good stuff.

High-Quality Dress Shirt Yokes

The yoke of a dress shirt is the cloth that lays over the shoulder blade and connects the shoulder fabric to the upper back section via horizontal stitch. A high-quality dress shirt will feature a split yoke – a seam that starts under the collar and goes down the middle to connect with the horizontal seam. This allows tailors to adjust each side of the back individually for a better, more uniform fit.

High-Quality Dress Shirt Pleats

Most dress shirts found in big box stores tend to feature pleats. Pleats, like the common box pleat, are a way to help the shirt keep its shape and stay close to the body. High-quality, in this respect, refers to the fit of the shirt and how it contours naturally around the back and shoulders. Side pleats are a cut above the box variant in that it allows your body to inform the fabric’s shape in a less obtrusive way. Observe below how including no pleats at all (plain) would be even more true to your form. At Original Stitch, we offer many styles of pleat, including box, side, side dart and plain.

High-Quality Dress Shirt Monograms

Monograms aren’t necessarily an indicator of high-quality. Truth is, anyone can have them added to off-the-rack shirts. BUT if you find a tailor or brand that can facilitate monogramming in house – like Original Stitch – it’s a good sign that they’re more likely to be directly involved in the manufacturing process than those who don’t.

At Original Stitch we offer a fully customizable collection of premium quality dress shirt, suit blazer, and pant fabrics. Use them to create a wardrobe that is completely unique to YOU. Our high-quality yarns are hand-selected from – and tailored in – Japan to be extra resistant to wear and tear while maintaining a softer feel than their off-the-rack counterparts.

Top Professional Fall Fashion Trends For Men in 2022

Top Professional Fall Fashion Trends For Men in 2022

 

Summer is coming to a close, and with its end comes the need for more cool weather clothing options. Not to worry. We’ve got you covered with the top professional fall fashion trends for men in 2022.

Quilted Jacket

Quilted jackets are to fall what puffer coats are to winter. They’re fashionable, functional, and can work with myriad styles. How heavy the one you choose should correspond to the season. Mild falls should be met with light to medium weight quilted jackets. Colder weather is reserved for hefty renditions. Whatever weight class you decide on will do wonders to smarten up your look regardless of implementation.

Oxford Cloth Button Up

The button up dress shirt is classic style. But what is the difference between an Oxford shirt and a standard dress shirt? Well, an Oxford dress shirt typically has a stiffer collar and usually comes as a button down. It is a happy medium between the sheen of more formal dress shirts and the boxy, basket-weave pattern of casual dress shirts. Keep the comfort of the casual weave with the professional look of a short point (or cutaway or rounded) collar by simply opting for an Oxford button up variant – like our Pink, White, or Grey Dobby Oxfords – to round out your Fall weather fashion.

Wool Pants

Wool and wool blend pants – like our Medium Grey Blended Wool slack fabric – are great for weather patterns that change periodically. Thicker wool retains body heat while lightweight weaves have the ability to breathe in the breeze. Wool also pulls moisture away from the body while repelling light snow and rain. Did we mention wool also resists wrinkles? The practical benefits of wool aside, pants made from the textile just look snazzy and allows for visual texture to be added to any ensemble.

Cap Toes, Monk Straps and Brogues

There are many shoe options coming in strong for Fall of 2022, but our three favorites are listed here. They are cap toes, monk straps, and brogues. What we love about the cap toe is its sheer versatility. They can often be worn with dress slacks, chinos, or even a nice denim. Monk straps add a bit of flare to liven up your wardrobe, and brogues bring with them regal style points that can be enjoyed in the office or in more formal settings.

At Original Stitch we offer a fully customizable collection of premium quality dress shirt, suit blazer, and pant fabrics. Use them to create a wardrobe that is completely unique to YOU. Our high-quality yarns are hand-selected from – and tailored in – Japan to be extra resistant to wear and tear while maintaining a softer feel than their off-the-rack counterparts.

How To Dress Well – 5 Practices Every Man Should Know

How To Dress Well – 5 Practices Every Man Should Know


Fashion as a concept has many rules, but personal style is whatever we make of it. Wearing what we want, how we want, is a liberating feeling, so it’s no wonder many of us use style as a form of expression. If you’re happy in crocs, tube socks, and cargo shorts, then by all means – have at it! But if you’re looking to fuse your personal style with a few established fashion concepts, then we’re here to help. Here are 6 practices to sharpen your fashion sense that every man should know. Whether you’re looking to incorporate these rules into your personal style or simply aiming to understand the do’s (don’ts are for more formal settings) so you can break them, we’ve got you covered.

Practice Number 1 - Wear well-fitting clothes

Yes. Well-fitting clothes, not just suits. Wearing the right size shirt and pants is a good start, but to really get the most out of your wardrobe, you’re going to want to kick things up a level. Tailoring is a great option. A good tailor will be able to extended their services to any suits, dress shirts, slacks, or jeans you may want tucked or hemmed. If time is an issue, try working with an online tailor like Original Stitch. Here, you can not only tailor the fit of dress shirts, slacks, and suit jackets to your specific measurements, but you can also customize the look and feel of every piece. You’re the designer that knows you best. We just bring your vision to life.   

Practice Number 2 - Have versatile coat options

Since making sure your clothes fit well is at the top of the list, then the very next thing we need to take a look at is how you accentuate them. Every coat you own, in a perfect world, would be functional to some capacity. Even if that capacity is to net you style points. For that reason alone, we recommend diversifying your coat closet. Every outfit deserves a jacket topper – even if you’re leaving it in the car – so make sure your wardrobe can deliver when the situation arises. There are so many to choose from! Dusters, Trench, Puffers, and Parkas. Windbreakers, Cargos, Denim, and Harringtons. Look around the net and you’re sure to find something to suit your style’s climate. The aforementioned list is a good place to start.

Practice Number 3 - Don’t skimp on shoes

Seriously. Don’t do it. Shoes can really make or break an outfit, but how often do you give them a second thought when getting dressed? If you just realized you don’t, don’t worry. You are not alone. You are overwhelmingly not alone. But the key to stepping up your shoe game is no big secret. Just shift focus from quantity to quality. Housing a few solid color options spread across your categorical need for footwear should suffice. Some good starter colors are brown, black, and white for casual shoes. Tan and black (with belts to match) for business attire. Black for formal. Sneakers and running shoes are the exception if and when outfitted with the intent to be active. Again, this is a cost vs price situation. Cheaper shoes may be priced right right now but at some point their propensity for high turnover will end up costing you. Grow your collection over time with good, quality, pieces that are priced accordingly.

Practice Number 4 - Familiarize yourself with how to match colors and patterns

Color and pattern matching are two often overlooked perks of ensemble planning. Mixing stripes with plaid used to be a no-no, but ask any fashion forward person today and they’ll say stripes and plaid were made for each other. So, have fun with it. Know the basic rules for color or pattern matching so that breaking them becomes an informed choice, not haphazard happenstance. At the end of the day, aesthetic features are your friend. Get familiar with the basics of color and patterns and how they work together and you’ll never feel like your wardrobe is out of place again.

Practice Number 5 - Develop good grooming habits

Good grooming habits are essential to looking and feeling your best. What does your routine look like? Do you have a skin care regiment that is specific to its respective zone (face, neck, hands, feet)? Do you incorporate a nail care routine that facilitates trimming, cutting, and cleaning? And what of your hair? Are you rubbing or patting it dry? Because rubbing causes breakage. There is no right or wrong answer to creating the perfect grooming routine, but if you at least address these few areas outside of the normal shower and shave, you’ll be sitting pretty.

At Original Stitch we offer a fully customizable collection of premium quality dress shirt, suit blazer, and pant fabrics. Use them to create a wardrobe that is completely unique to YOU. Our high-quality yarns are hand-selected from – and tailored in – Japan to be extra resistant to wear and tear while maintaining a softer feel than their off-the-rack counterparts.
