A Perfect Fall Day

The Beginnings of Fall

September 1, 2016

It’s hard to believe right now, but any moment the winds of fall will begin to blow in. And in typical East Tennessee fashion, the cooler temperatures will arrive and the beautiful colors of the season will emerge. It will be a time of heading to the mountains, bourbon by a fire and a Saturday at Neyland. It will also be a time to think about sweaters, cords, flannels and these beauties.

Wildsam City Guides

June 6, 2016

When I moved to Nashville in 1992 there was nothing like the city guides you see here from Wildsam. Granted, the Nashville of 1992 and the Nashville of now are polar opposites, but I still didn’t have any bearings on where the locals went or what businesses were run by “true originals”. Over time and through friends I made, I would find these things out, but it’s always a little helpful to have a head start.

There’s nothing odd about the odd jacket…

April 7, 2016

Here at the M. S., the odd jacket is the wardrobe foundation for the man with style, and we have plenty of them just for you if you should be that man. We’re happy to present selections from Canali, Samuelsohn, Southwick, Empire, Crittenden, Hickey Freeman and a particularly eye catching jacket from Coppley. They all match wonderfully with our trouser separates, shirts from Eton and a variety of neckwear. Don’t forget a pocket square for an extra bit of sprezzatura.

The Colors of Canali

March 28, 2016

Spring came early this year, and that’s a good thing. It’s time to put away the heavy woolens and embrace lightweight wools, linens and silk blends. And just in time, we’re stocked up with beautiful sport coats from our Italian resource – Canali.

Peter Millar – Spring 2016

February 24, 2016

With each new season we always get excited for the new offerings from our friends at Peter Millar. And this season is no exception. We’re seeing great colors and patterns in shirts, shorts, sweaters, pullovers and soft coats that do not disappoint.

A beautiful one of a kind from Alden …

November 20, 2015

Just in from the shoemakers at Alden is this whiskey toned, pebble grain dress loafer. Shoes from Alden, as many of you know, are a work of art, but the special leather takes this shoe to another level.

The details matter …..

It’s a truism in all things, but even more so in the sartorial arts….details matter. It’s the little touches that often get noticed as the mark of a well dressed man.
