I can answer any and all questions concerning men's clothing under the following categories: clothing etiquette (like what to wear for certain functions), quality (how to see if something is well-made), specific brands (a brand name doesn't mean good quality), questions about individual products (neckwear, sport jackets, trousers, etc.), and even questions about certain specialty stores. Please do not: ask what a certain celebrity is wearing (with a link of a pic), where you can find some article that's hard to find or "I need a new wardrobe, can you tell me what items to get?" questions (visit your local specialty or department store for that answer).
I am a menswear designer and sell under the "Zaharoff" label, sold in specialty stores like Nordstrom. I have traveled the four corners of the globe and have been to many different factories. I have been doing this for over fifteen years.
I belong to the organization of humanity.
I majored in Operations Management and graduated from DePaul University in Chicago, but most importantly I've been in this business for over fifteen years.
In this business the awards and honors are sales and having your creations sold season after season.
Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman and specialty stores around the country and UK.
I love the movement of goods and services. I love how I can scribble a sketch, have it go to a computer graphics guy in Japan, then to an industrial engineer where it's made into a blueprint in London and finally a mold with a finished cufflink in Northern England!
If I can teach someone that jeans and a t-shirt is NOT tailored clothing.
There actually is a certain protocol with the time of day and what is proper (and not proper) to wear. Many do not know this.
People think "anything goes nowadays" or "I don't have anyone to impress" - But what is proper is what will set you apart from those who think "anything goes" - and the way you present yourself to the outside world shows how much you respect yourself.

HI Sabal, I want to preface the pictures I sent you with regards to Zaharoff shirts was during the pattern-making phase. These "defective" shirts never went into the marketplace. I have to say this
Hi Sabal, I had similar issues when I was developing the pattern for my shirts. And when we tried to adjust one part, it would effect other aspects of the construction - as you know, it's all about
Hi Jordan, Typically, when you see mesh inside a pair of shorts, it is for swimming or running. It's placed there to keep "things" together and dry faster; it is almost always 100% polyester or nylon
