Our discussion on different ways of wearing french cuffs last week led readers to ask a question that has led me to follow up with a second article on cuffs. This one revolves around barrel cuffs and the number of buttons on them. Although there exist 3-button barrel cuffs, you'd be hard-pressed to find someone wearing that unless he is extremely tall and the shirt is custom made. As such, we will look at just the two-button and single button barrel cuffs. So which one should you wear? The short answer is - there is no 'right' answer to the question, it is a matter of personal preference. What...
Since we launched the Kickstarter for Hucklebury, I've been asked about the lack of french cuff options. I have discussed occasions to wear cufflinks as well as different styles of cuffs (with an infographic) in earlier articles. This post came about due to an interesting discussion that arose from queries - how do you wear your french cuffs? It came to my attention that there are ways besides what I consider the norm to wearing french cuffs, so I spent some time learning about them and felt I should write about it. So here are the 3 different ways of wearing french cuffs:

Growing up, I have vivid memories of teachers reprimanding me for not tucking in my shirt and my mom telling me from a tender age to tuck in my shirt to look smart and presentable. Well, this week, I finally decide to tackle this topic head on to find out what and when should you tuck in or tuck out your (t)shirt.
The Tee (TShirt) - Tuck it?
Short answer - No.
This is as casual as it gets. Feel free to keep it tucked out. Not to say that it cannot be tucked in - but unless it is very form fitting and long to a point where it shows off the shape of your ass, you will probably look better tucking...
It is well-drilled into everyone these days that you should wear fitting clothes. We have even covered the topic a couple of times - from discussing how to get properly fitted for a dress shirt to a discussion on the right fit and style for your body type. The science and subtle arts of fit are sufficient for men of action, who are convinced of wearing fitting clothes. How about the rest of the guys out there though? Why SHOULD you wear fitting clothes? And what is meant by the term "fitting"?

To keep things simple, we'll generalize into 3 broad categories-
When Kickstarter burst onto the online scene, no one could have predicted the kind of effect it would have on the landscape of starting a business (if you do not know what it is - check it out NOW!). This week, we decided to take a look at how Kickstarter has affected the budding fashion industry online by going through statistics gleaned from Kickstarter itself as well as Sidekick. We have also created a neat little infographic (skip to the end if you prefer visuals to words) for you to share with everyone!
