Fifth Avenue Shoe Repairers

Finding a proper, competent cobbler has become the bain of my life in recent times –as has finding a decent...

Donegal Tweed cloth swatches from Caccioppoli

It’s appropriate that the first post on the new website should be about a new bespoke suit project from a new bespoke tailor.  

I say new, but I’ve covered Nino Santoro and his wonderful shirts numerous times. However, to date we’ve never touched on his father Franco. Bespoke tailoring is actually the heart of the business and Franco Santoro an extremely accomplished bespoke cutter and jacket maker who has made suits for the likes of...

Linkson Jack Accessories

One of the things I enjoy most about BespokeMe is the people I get to meet off the back of my writing. In addition to that just occasionally I’m able to help out a budding new independent retailer, a guy just like us who is trying to turn his passion into a working business. Linkson Jack is just such a guy and I’m pleased to announce he has just launched his own retail...

Jackson & Edison Socks, Rome

Amongst the many contributions Italy has made to the world of menswear it’s generally acknowledged that they make the finest hosiery. So while it may seem slightly extravagant to import one’s socks from Rome with this latest find it’s an opportunity too good to pass up.

Matching pocket squares and ties


Last week I popped in to Nino’s of London to pick up that pocket square I needed to complete that look highlighted in my last post. Despite going in for one pocket square I couldn’t help but purchase a couple of others that caught my eye.

The Knottery, Ties and Pocket Squares

Quirky, original, full of vim and vigour The Knottery is a nimble independent retailer that never fails to deliver on their mantra of ‘Attainable Style'. In the process they don’t take themselves too seriously; that’s my kind of label.

As you might guess, I’ve grown quite attached to this US based independent micro-label over recent...
