To Be Best Dressed Be Over 40 and Custom Tailored

It is scarcely a coincidence that not only are most “best-dressed” men more than forty years of age, but also that they rarely, if ever, wear ready-made clothes. For in addition to good looks and clothes sense, they have by and large, enough money to afford the invaluable collaboration of superb tailors like Bernard Weatherill and H. Harris in New York and E. Tautz in London; of such American shirtmakers as Dudley G. Eldridge, Brooks Brothers, and Sulka’s, and Turnbull & Asser of London…

— George Frazier, “The Art of Wearing Clothes”, Esquire Magazine 1960

    If only Esquire was still producing such in-depth and interesting articles in 2011 as they were in 1960! This article would now appear in Rake, as it is now the premiere men’s mag.
    Nice to see the Bryan cousins of Richmond get some press!

    I agree. There is a dearth of good content. Richmond did do rather well, didn’t it?
