A Vault Full of Dapperness for the Taking

  • Najib Benouar

For those of you lucky enough to be in New York City this weekend, we have some really, really ridiculously good-looking news.

Our comrades-in-style over at UrbanDaddy are hosting a two-day, whiskey-infused extravaganza of dapperness called the Vault on Saturday and Sunday in SoHo (70 Wooster St, to be exact).

In said Vault will be untold wonders of menswear from the likes of Michael Bastian, Slowear, Oliver Spencer, Richard James, Barker Black and more, at unheard-of prices—camelhair chesterfields from MB, gray hopsack suits from Richard James Savile Row, the coveted Incotex pants line from Slowear...

As with any good celebration of handsomeness, the scotch will be flowing freely. And if you happen to be in the giving mood, they’ve also set up complimentary on-site gift wrapping. (Just remember to act surprised when you open them later.)

See the flier with all of the pertinent information, after the jump.»

Going Robe

  • Najib Benouar

The rule of three has been met. Welcome to the robe era, gentlemen.

First it was a robe-style parka from Ian Velardi, then a robe-style flannel... robe, and now: this robe-style cardigan from Slowear.

This one might be the coziest we’ve seen yet—in a chunky-knit wool from Zanone (under the Slowear umbrella, which includes the blogger gold standard of pants, Incotex). It’s also the least outlandish of the bunch—basically just a longer-than-usual cardigan with the option of a belt—which should lend itself to more situations that don’t require a tie.

Depending on how casual your casual Fridays get.
