If you've ever been to a prom, wedding, or some other formal event, odds are you know the hell that is renting a tuxedo. Or hell that was, rather, thanks to The Black Tux. This new online tuxedo rental service makes it quick and easy to rent a fantastic suit by letting you enter your measurements and select an outfit online — either pick a curated style or select the shirt, tie, jacket, shoes, and cufflinks yourself. One week before your event, your tux will arrive, and when you're done, simply drop it back in the mail. The best part? Thanks to the lack of a middleman, you're getting far greater quality for a lower price. Win, win, win.
How do you plan for both a structured look during office hours and a casual look after hours — all while avoiding a costume change? Everlane answers that question with their new Knit Blazer. Made from 100% cotton in a Milano stitch, the blazer's as comfortable as your favorite broken-in sweater, but keeps you looking on top of your game. Cut to fit like a slim blazer, it sports a wool-lined collar and tonal buttons. And it won't hurt your wallet either, so you can wear it to work twice a week, and still afford to buy a round or two on Friday.
Presented by Everlane.
Your part of the world stuck in the hell that is this pre-Spring, late-Winter temperature roller coaster? Gear up right with the Woolrich John Rich & Bros. Hiking Blazer ($550). Designed by Tokito, this lightweight jacket is made from a cotton/nylon blend that dries quickly and is water repellent, yet still offers reasonable protection from wind and cold. Other features include three flap patch pockets, a center button closure, elbow pads, and a removable hood that makes it easy to transition from commute to workday.
Enjoy the benefits of a suit that's as smart as you are with the Indochino Nanotech Storm Suit ($630). Designed for all-weather wear, the Storm features a Nanotech coating that repels liquids and stains and resists odors and wrinkles, as well as a detachable Storm Flap that adds a splash of color while offering the warmth of down when the temperature dips. It's not just the exterior that surprises — inside you'll find a waterproof, touch-responsive Smart Pocket for your phone and a metal earphone cable clip so you can stay connected without looking like a prop from Radio Shack.
