I have been so excited to sport my new made to measure suit from Blank Label. Earlier this summer I had the pleasure of hosting a dinner with some good friends sponsored by I.W. Harper at the Blank Label Pattern Room. The dinner was to celebrate the return of I.W. Harper Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey back to the United States after a 20-year absence.
The unique experience of holding an incredible dinner in a different kind of setting was a treat. The Blank Label Pattern Room was a terrific setting. There was such great camaraderie and we learn about the reintroduction of a great whiskey. We also had a chance to check out Blank Label clothing.
I had previously had a shirt made by Blank Label but I really wanted to get a full suit made. There’s nothing like having a suit made to your own measurements. Where a full-bespoke suit can cost thousands of dollars, require several fittings and take several months to deliver, a made to measure suit from Blank Label offers a more affordable alternative.
After taking my measurements and discussing how I like my fit, I was able to pick out a blue plaid linen suit with a light blue lining. The thing I really liked was that I was able to add some little details that were individually personalized for me. The suit arrived in a matter of weeks just in time to make the trek to Men’s New York Fashion Week as well as be a great go to for these hazy hot humid days of August.
Individuality and personality are key tenants in my effort to Live Like Mr. Harper so my Blank Label suit was an ideal way to showcase my style. I put together my look by pairing the suit with a blue striped dress shirt and tonal tie. Adding a green floral lapel pin helped to bring out the green in the plaid. I finished my ensemble with a double monk strap in beautiful bordeaux.
Whether it’s tailored and off the rack, made to measure or bespoke, the well-dressed man’s suit should be well fitted. When it does you not only look great but feel great too. After all isn’t that how you Live Like Mr. Harper?
