Very excited to share with you guys the latest feature we worked on for GQ.com. I was chosen as an Agent of Style for GQ's Holiday Style Report which just went live here: http://www.gq.com/partners/stylereport/.

As a menswear blogger that started out main with suits first, it was a great honor to work so closely with Hart Schaffner Marx on designing my own custom made suit. It's so fun and satisfying to pick out every little details that make a suit from fabric, lapel, to buttons and then seeing it come to life. This is a strong bold suit worn together which can be worn separately for more casual occasions.

Here's the breakdown of my winter style suit from HSM:

Pattern - Glen Plaid: This is one of my favorite patterns and I have it in a spring/summer suit. I usually put it away once Fall hits also because it's a lighter grey color. So when the opportunity came to pick out a bold pattern for my own suit, I had to go with the glen plaid in a winter appropriate fabric. This material is all about texture and thicker weight. That makes the suit winter ready, standout and stylish from the rest. I also love the subtle blue details in the pattern.

Lapel - Peak: With a statement pattern to start, it needs a complementing lapel to match. The peak lapel is a strong, bold, and fashion-forward take on the suit. I went with the standard two button since I also got a matching vest to go with it.

EXTRA - Elbow Patch: Old School. The elbow patch is not something you see often on a suit anymore. With the winter season in full effect, the elbow patch is another extra brownie point details to score. It adds on more texture and sophistication to the suit. I chose brown to match with my brown boots and dress shoes (my other choice was white but that can get dirty easily).
