heyyyyyyy its me

So, it’s been about a month since I last posted. My apologies, fellas. I was in China for a job interview, my company was recently purchased, I’m moving soon, and, well, I have a whole lot of excuses. Manshion will now continue regular updates.

I’m sure you’ve noticed my one and only advertisement for indochino.com. I have a great working relationship with these guys and really stand behind what they do. So, while in China, I decided to stop by and see my Canadian friends at work.

I hate to make this into a propaganda piece, but I was just amazed by one guy on the payroll in particular– the master tailor. This guy comes in, looks at your measurements, makes some judgment calls and cuts a few yards for each order to bring back to his workshop. This same man then hand cuts every piece of your suit. It’s insane. I really thought the process was mostly machine-work, with the prices they offer.. but no. This guy, who’s been making suits for at least 20 years (and wears this same, brilliant 70’s style big stripe number most days of the week) actually hand measures and cuts your suits.  He then remeasures all of the finished products for quality control before shipping. If I spoke Chinese, I would make this guy my best friend.

Anyways.. yep. I’m back. Manshion.net is not dead. Look for daily updates again. Thanks for hanging in there.

    Hey, glad to hear you’re back to it.

    If you’re looking for topics, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the different ways to wear dark brown driving mocs — that is, not just sockless with a tan suit. anything else? anybody else have suggestions? I own several pairs of shorts, and the only way that the mocs look even remotely appropriate with them is if i roll up the shorts a bit as if to say ‘hey, i’m doing this on purpose’. Otherwise the shoes look dressed up, and the shorts are dressed down.

    Anyway, I know this isn’t styleforum, but it’s my site of choice, so if anybody has any thoughts, i’d love to hear them.

  1. […] sew your suits, fellas. I wish I spoke a bit more Chinese and could really talk to the guy when I visited.  He’s an interesting, stylish fellow who really cares about his craft and the products he […]
