9Tailors was founded in 2007 by a young entrprenuer frustrated by always taking clothes to the tailor.  The website is a “Design-it-yourself” customization tool.  You pick the fabric, collar, stitching, button style, cuff style, and type in your exact measurements (they show you how to get these), and within three weeks you have your own, self-designed, custom fitting dress shirts.  Genius.  Shirts start at $60.  BUY

Don Draper Pocket SquareIrish Linen is considered so nice, there is an institute in Ireland devoted to it.   The fabric itself is grown all over the world, but the Irish standards for putting it together, and selection are so high – that it is now known as the absolute best.  So we have no qualms offering up these handkerchiefs to act as pocket squares.   Only the finest, and any damsel in distress will be equally grateful if you happen to give her one.  Get your Don Draper on. 3 for $60.

Likely won’t be for a long time – as Patagonia has a lifetime guarantee on its products, meaning if anything goes wrong…ever…you can walk in or send it in and have it replaced. Top quality, top customer service. $160. BUY

Speedo’s LZR is causing quite brouhaha in the swimming world. In the last six weeks, it has been worn in 16 record breaking swims. In fact, Speedo is now advertising – “World Records Being Broken Daily” with the suit. In designing the suit, Speedo borrowed wind tunnels from NASA to analyze surface friction of over 60 types of fabric, and performed 3D bodyscans of over 400 elite athletes to get the fit right. It even has ultrasonically welded bonded seams. Michael Phelps described the feeling of wearing it as, “like a rocket…unreal.” We’ve never described any clothing that way. For the price there should be an outboard engine on the back of it. £320.00. PRE-ORDER

Thomas Pink’s Black Label Abson Herringbone Pink Shirt is the classic and best. The original cut and fabric is not only extremely well tailored, but will last you for years. The company is actually named after an 18th century London tailor who made red hunting coats. If you were lucky enough to own, you were said to be “in the pink.” Cufflinks required for this one. A cut above the rest. $150

Never feel the cold again….above the waist. $408.
